This is one of those places that has so much potential, but it's just being left to die. Although it's still advertised, they no longer offer cable TV at all. They do have Wi-Fi although it's only available near the main building and it's not that reliable. The owner is very personable and spends time checking on everyone quite regularly, but he should probably spend some time doing some basic landscaping and maybe rearranging the sites so that there's some semblance of order to the place. Right now it seems that he's placed a site wherever he could fit it among the trees and there are many seasonal sites that need clean-up. With a small capital investment and a bit of work this place could be beautiful, but there's probably not enough business to support the cash outlay. The pool was very nice and there was a good outdoor play area. It's a fine place for an overnight and we would stay again if traveling through the area.

This is a very nice setting with large trees and lots of grass. The sites., however, are short and un-level. They need to spend some money on grading and lengthening the sites as well as refurbishing some of the utilities, especially the sewer connections, which are not 90 degrees to the ground but in our site (32) were at a 45 degree angle, very odd. Reworking the road system so that the sites are less square to the roadways would be a great improvement. The owners are very nice and it's a fine place for an overnight stop. There's a few seasonal people here but the sites are well kept. Rate reflects the Good Sam discount.

As always, this is one of our favorites. The state has a new pricing policy in effect whereby the more popular campground sites cost more money and they also charge more for out-of-state residents, so it's becoming a bit pricey for us to stay here for only getting partial hookups. The fire danger was very high so no fires were permitted but we still enjoyed sitting out and watching the osprey fish in the river and teach their young to fly. This is a beautiful, peaceful place that we will always keep in our list of stopovers.

Like others have said this is a beautiful park right on the river, which unfortunately backs right on to the rail tracks. You will encounter a few trains going by but the track does not seem to be terribly busy. Our site (B29) backed right on to the river and the tracks and we found it to be quite acceptable. We'll definitely stay here again.

Great facilities in a very well run park. The amenities here are top notch - level parking pads, beautiful grass strips at each site, wonderful common areas. We would definitely come back here. Rate reflects a Good Sam discount.

This is a beautiful park among old growth forest. It's so quiet here that it's almost eerie. We picked blackberries along the walking trails till we had our fill. The facilities are top notch and we will definitely be back. Rate reflects out of state booking premium along with reservation fees.

While this is advertised as a 'lake', it is really more of a slough than a lake. It's mostly covered with algae and is much in need of aeration. The campground itself has nice trees but the sites are very close together. The wifi service is supplied by Tengo and is only free for one hour every 24 hours. Are you kidding me? Even the Safeway across the street has unlimited free wireless internet access. In this day and age no reputable campground charges for wifi access and they certainly don't use a service that limits bandwidth based on usage. The cable TV they offer has only 14 channels. I've stayed in many nicer places with lower prices that provide better amenities. Pass this one by, there is much better value to be had at other area campgrounds.

This is an awesome little park in a beautiful little town. The owners go out of their way to make sure you've got everything you need and to ensure that you're happy with your site. Their son has a small military museum on site which is really quite interesting and very well appointed. His collection of vehicles is really quite nice. The sites are large and the grass is very lush. We'll always stay here when we're in Dillon. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

This is a very nice campground in the fact that the sites are large and well treed. However the campground is right on US Highway 20 so there's a lot of traffic noise to contend with. The new owners have eliminated the free pancake and egg breakfast, which is too bad, it was a nice novelty. When we checked in we were not given a map or a set of rules or any information on area attractions which seemed strange. The town is very small (

This place is old and tired. Power is horrible, 109 volts on one leg and 121 volts on the other, our lights were constantly changing intensity. They need to spend some money on maintenance, especially at the price they charge. While we were checking in another camper was telling the owner about a sewer connection issue at their site. Instead of trying to understand her concern or go look at the problem he instead repeatedly told her that they're all the same size so maybe you just need an elbow. Pretty poor example of good customer service. We won't be back.

Wow, talk about a fantastic camping experience. As soon as we arrived a staff member selected a number of different sites in the campground and had one of her boys drive us around in a golf cart to view each of them. Once we chose our site he took us back to the office and we were told to go set up and then come pay later. The place is beautiful, the sites have large established shade trees and there's plenty of grass so that you can sit outside and enjoy. The pool and laundry room were excellent. We will definitely come back here again.

A very nice park within easy walking distance to Wall Drug. We had a FHU pull thru site that was nice and long, very well maintained. The grass was neatly trimmed and the park overall was well kept. We would stay here again.

This place has so much potential, but it is being neglected. The lady sat in the office for 6 hours today watching TV, and the grass is in desperate need of mowing. The weeds are encroaching seriously on to the gravel, and the flies are horrendous. It's pretty much impossible to sit outside without being continually bothered by them. Fairly close to the highway, so there's lots of traffic noise. We won't stop here again.

This is a very nice park with a beautiful little campground. The sites are large enough to maneuver easily and there is plenty of space between you and your neighbor. It's far enough away from the Interstate that highway noise is not a big issue. We would definitely stay here again.

I don't know if 'Best' is the right word to use in the campground name. The campground is average, and hasn't seen any work on weeding or grass trimming for quite some time. The sites are not level at all, and they are fairly close together. Roadways are in dire need of maintenance. The office staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. The wi-fi is exceptional. I would look around Branson if we come to this area again to see what other options are available.
