Good overnight stop while on I-40, about 50 miles East of Oklahoma City. Chandler seemed to be a charming small town. As I recall, the park is about 8 miles drive off the freeway. We had called ahead, and the lady was very helpful and pleasant in arranging our arrival. he park is on a hilly area, but the sites are very leveled and mostly in the trees. Since most of the leaves had fallen off, our satellite dish was able to connect, but I bet in the summer, it wouldn't have. Lots of tv stations on the antenna, good verizon signal (2 bars) We would stay here again, but only as an overnighter. Road into the park, a little bumpy for a big coach, but overall, a nice experience.

A wonderful location and the premium spots look out at the water of Lake Taneycomo. We had stayed closer to the theater district in the past, but had not views, were frustrated with the up and down hills and unable to get satellite reception because of all the trees. We were so glad we spent a week here this year. So much to see and also great for biking with all the level areas. You can even bike down the river. When we wanted to stay an extra day, the staff did everything they could to accommodate us and although we had to move a little, we still had a great site. We noticed it's a little more crowded in the interior rows but the place was almost sold out every day. Very popular, and there are docks where you can go out and relax and a nearby marina. The trains go around the park several times a day but don't blow the whistle nearby and are fun to watch. (2 freight trains a day, and the Scenic train goes by lots.) We would never stay at Branson again, unless we could get a space here. One slight downside, over which the park has no control. The edge of the lake is city property and a number of fisherman will park along the lake while they fish, blocking some of your view of the water, but the view is still better than other parks we have stayed at. No rugs were allowed on the grass, as it killed the grass and they re-sod it.

A first class Missouri State Park of which they can be very proud. We are not fisherman, but the trout fishing apparently is world class. The bottom campground can hold any size rig and has full hook ups. There is a VERY steep paved road up the hill to all the other campgrounds, which are not as level or open as the bottom area. I would never take a larger rig up that steep hill. I would estimate the grade close to 20%. Reservations, we hear, are a must, and we were lucky to get the last available site when we were there. Good cell reception. This was a gem and we are glad we got into see it. Some campgrounds shut down the water after October 15th for freezing prevention.

Acceptable for big rigs but close to a very noisy truck route. Staff was very helpful and took us in with no reservations. finding the right exit 1, as you head West, is a tough one, as three interstates come together right before the Mississippi River. We missed it and had to come back from downtown St. Louis, as I'm told a lot of travelers do. The long pull through are actually two spaces so you might have to disconnect your tow to allow another unit behind you. Easy to navigate the roads hooked up. Laundry room is a little small for the size of the park.

A most unusual experience. I knew from researching Louisville, that there weren't a lot of top notch locations in which to stay. We picked this Derby Park, site of a large flea market on the weekends, and we made the mistake of arriving during the flea market. The supervisor came in his car and guided us into a large grass and dirt parking lot with electrical boxes on the fences. It is used mainly as a camping spot for RVs during the Kentucky Derby. We plugged in along the fence but then noticed that this was also the parking area for the Haunted House attraction that night. The manager, who really went out of his way to help us in every area, and is to be commended, suggested that we move our rig down to the other side after the flea market closed and we would be away from the Haunted House. We did that, but were surprised in the morning to have our RV surrounded by cars, and a farmer selling chickens and live roosters to a multitude of people. This park is located in a very seedy area, but amazingly we experienced no problems. As nice as the manager was, we will never be back. There were no other RVs that even tried to stay here. Electric only. I heard there was a dump station but with so many cars there, we left.

Camp right on the New River or close by at this campground. Scenery is just spectacular. Several sites are parallel to the water, the others head in. Not a fancy park but location, location, location is the key. They have a prime spot in this charming valley. Approach from the West on Route 60. Fairly level from the West Virginia toll road, but right past this park, route 60 is extremely curvy and mountainous, with lots of logging and coal trucks. I can't imagine driving in from the east, but some do. I would never take a larger rig in that way. Nearby towns are picturesque and Glenn's Ferry reminded us of towns in Vermont. Railroad tracks across the water but no whistle blowing in the area so it's not disruptive. Plenty of side roads to explore. We would visit again. One note, for larger rigs, the turnoff, coming West on 60, is right after the CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar parking lot. It you know exactly where it is, it's possible to do a real wide turn to get in. However, we shot past the entrance, disconnected our tow car in front of the office, and backed up in order to pull through. We have a 42 ft long Class A. Owners are very helpful to their guests.

We stayed in the Lover's Leap campground and think this is one of the best RV parks around. The State of Virginia, I am told, doesn't have sewers available at most sites, and that would be the only downside. One other point, you are camped on the top of the mountain, with the tunnel underneath you, and the road up to the top is a fairly steep grade. There is one short section extremely steep for several hundred feet. I would call it a 20% grade and we always disconnect for this final hill. This does seem to keep many of the larger big rig motorhomes, away from this park. We had a 40 ft. long rig and were able to make it, in first gear, going very slow, but just very steep on that one part. It's a lovely park and incredibly well-maintained. The original camp ground nearby is not paved, and not as level as the Lover's Leap. The state does allow use of the road going over the top to some dump trucks, and noticed a lot of them driving over the hill during the daytime. Just a little noisy, but it's not through the campgrounds, just near them.

I would not recommend a big rig use this state campground. We drove into the park in a forty footer and had much difficulty negotiating the roads, although the branches were trimmed up high enough and the roads were just barely wide enough. there are actually a lot of sites a larger coach can fit into, but backing up and getting into them, turned out to be a major problem. No sewers and the dump station is a little difficult to get into but it can be done. This are lots of trees in the area, with no overall view of the water, but was very quiet at night. I believe we were in site 36 but can't recall exactly. Many parks don't have reservations after labor day, but this park did, so you have to find an open site, then go to the visitor center to pay for it.

We stayed in one of their patio sites. Although very expensive, and with lots of road noise from the Briley Parkway nearby, this is quite a well-maintained park and the patio sites they have put in are just beautiful. The only complaint I would have, is that there are extremely bright lights around the new pool and spa they put in, and we had to cover our bedroom windows to keep the lights out. They have been doing rennovating and construction at this park for what seems like years, but now it's all over and they have done a fine job. Everybody seems happy with the place. Camping Wold is right around the corner as well. One problem I am seeing and it's not only at this park, but others, are all the people watching their outside tv systems until all hours, with speakers on loud enough to hear 10 spaces a way. This feature is ok for a Nascar race, but so many rv's have them now, and play them rudely and without consideration of the other campers. We had a rig next to us, that would leave the tv and sound on all day, even while they were gone. Shame!!

A first-class state park with lots of sites with lake views and full hookups. There is a nuclear power plant across the water and a nuclear evacuation route out of the park, if that is a concern. However, we pulled into the par this year and 10 minutes later, the entire park lost electricity for over 5 hours. Temps were around 100 degrees and most of the folks in fifth-wheels had no AC. We heard it was a transformer problem, nothing to do with the plant. The A and C loops have most of the lake views. Shopping about 10 minutes away in Russleville.

There are several campgrounds at this state park. Dogwood Drive has no views of the lake, Deep Fork campground has some with views of the lake. When we were there, at the Deep Fork Campground, they were doing road repair the next day and the campground was closed the next day so we had to leave. Register and pay at the Visitor Center on the way in. Very nice park, but wish they had more sites where you could see the lake!

Large grassy area with hundreds of water and electric hookups. We camped there in a large Motorhome during one of the very nice Arbuckle Bluegrass Festivals. There was a huge storm coming in that night and they did want us to park on a higher site so we wouldn't get stuck and did. Nearest town is Davis, for shopping, about 15 minutes away. We would camp here again. Some freeway noise but not too bad. Sites are not numbered in the area we camped in. Some sites are located along the paved road and have lots of shade.

Nice overnight stop while traveling on I-40. Very long pull throughs. We also liked how the owner met us at the entrance, took our card, registered us without us having to shut down the rig. They guided us to site C-5. Freeway is close but we had our windows up and the noise wasn't a factor. they got fairly full at the end of the day, and we were surprised to see them guide in a huge fifth wheel with slides, right next to us. Their slide would have come within several feet of our rig. My wife mentioned this to the owner they immediately guided them away to another spot. We really appreciated them taking the extra effort to do that. No problem getting a dish and signal. Rabbitt ears gets the Albuquerque stations. We would stop there again.

Nice overnight stop while traveling on I-40. Entrance is just beyond a KOA park and can easily be mistaken. Large walls of oleanders give each site lots of privacy. Some of the reviews we read indicated pullthroughs were tough but we had no problem on site 33 and didn't need to disconnect. We were in a 42 ft. rig. We used the nearby laundry facilities, $2.50 for a wash and dry. Very quiet. Although the main train line was a mile or two up the hill, we didn't hear any whistles that evening. No problem getting a dish and signal up. Phoenix stations were on the rabbit ears. We would stay there again.

A true Big Rig park, with wide roads, huge pull through sites. Only one row has full hookups, the others are water and power only, but there's an easily accessible dump station. Good security with gates closed all evening long. We were able to get satellite signal from the row we were in. Very well kept and clean RV park. We're sorry we had passed it so many times before but glad we stopped. All the sites are very level. No cable tv but we were able to get most networks with our rabbit ears. Far enough the Interstate so traffic noise was more minimal.
