This is the best campground we have ever stayed at. The sites and campground roads are wide, level, and exceptionally well-maintained. The owners are very nice. Upon arrival, the owner escorted us to our site, helped us back in and showed us where all of the hookups are. There was also a stack of firewood waiting for us at our site (complimentary!!!! not just leftover from previous campers). Each site has its own deck and picnic table with great lake views. The campground is very quiet and peaceful. Don't go to this campground if you are looking for noisy enterainment for your kids. There is no pool or gameroom. Even without these amenities, our kids wanted to stay longer (we stayed 5 nights) and definitely want to go back. This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a beautiful view of the water.

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) stayed one night in our 30ft 5th-wheel RV at the Eureka, MO Jellystone Park. We stayed in site #8. We thought Jellystone would offer some fun and entertainment for our children during an overnight stop. We were greatly disappointed! The Eureka, MO Jellystone is the worst and the most expensive campground we have ever stayed at. Our campsite was so narrow that we only had a 3 inch clearance between our RV and a tree. Thank goodness we had no slide-outs. The end of our RV hung out over a drop-off because the site was so short. We were hardly able to get our rear jacks set because of the drop-off. The roads in the campground are extremely narrow. Cars park all along the side of the roads in the campground which makes it almost impossible to maneuver an RV of any size through the campground. When we left we had to ask the people in the cabin across from us to move their car so we could get out. The campground also does not maintain its pet policy. The campers in the site next to us had 4 dogs which were left alone at their site and barked non-stop for the first 30 minutes after our arrival. The dogs at this site were frequently left alone in outdoor dog pens to bark at every passing visitor. All of the RV sites we saw, including our own, were unlevel, short, narrow, dirty, and rocky. The swimming pool was dirty. The floor of the arcade was a mess. The only positive thing we can say about this park was that the staff was friendly. We will never stay at this or any other Jellystone park again. The experience was miserable and expensive. For $45+ per night, we expected clean, level, quiet, well-maintained campsites and clean facilities. None of these expectations were met.
