This awesome campground just off the beaten path, but still in the heart of Branson. Upon arriving we were greeted with fresh popcorn and escorted to our site by one of the staff. They staff is friendly, helpful, and courteous. They were very helpful in assisting us with attractions in the area. They have a show shuttle service and ticket booth right at the park. The staff puts on an awesome pancake breakfast in the mornings, complete with the best biscuits and gravy ever. The store also has a small pizza parlor and they deliver it right to your site. Some of the sites are currently being improved with brick patios and flowers. The sites are spacious and our pull through (#154) even had a large grassy area right next to it. The park provides a clean playground, sparkling (and refreshing in the heat of the Branson summer) pool, and a bounce mat for the kids. My grandchildren loved it! We rated this park an 8 due to the restrooms being small and outdated. The restrooms are only one shower and one toilet. My son-in-law complained that people were walking by him as he was using the toilet as it is not stalled. While in the area don't miss Dolly's Dixie Stampede. My 2 year old granddaughter especially loved the music and the horses. We also went to the butterfly garden, don't miss the mirror maze. We also went about 30 miles back east to visit Lambert's restaurant as we had seen it on the Travel Channel and it did not disappoint! They even throw your rolls from the middle of the room!

Beautiful campground in Eureka, MO. It is only about 2 miles to Six Flags. The staff was friendly and courteous. The park was clean and well maintained with spacious sites. There is a well kept playground and sparkling pool. We never had time to swim in the pool, but lots of people were enjoying it as we passed. The restrooms were clean, spacious, with divided individual showers and toilets. Good connection on the Wi-Fi and good cell service. We had originally tried to stay at Jellystone without much luck. However, when we took the time to drive through it later we were soooo glad that we stayed at the KOA instead. I am not sure that we could have gotten our rig into and out of Jellystones small hillside spaces. We highly recommend the Anheuser-Busch Brewing tour!

Wonderful little roadside campground in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. This campground is family owned and operated. Staff is helpful and friendly. Stocked ponds with good fishing. They will even cook and clean your fish for you. ATV riding right out of the park on majestic forest trails. ATV rentals and tours were available. Trout Haven also offers 7 camping cabins quaintly decorated in a lodge style, and two tepees This resort is very family friendly and even has a bounce house for the kids. The food in the restaurant is awesome! We rated this resort a seven due to no pool, poor Wi-Fi connectivity, no TV, no cell phone service, and out dated restroom facilities. If you are seeking a low tech escape with awesome ATV riding this is your place! Trout Haven is near Deadwood, Rapid City, and all other Black Hills attractions. If you have kids, we highly recommend Old MacDonald's Farm, Bear Country, Story Book Island, and the President's Slide.
