The water is very hard and the campground has made no effort to adjust the spray of the lawn sprinklers. After the first night, I was dismayed to find hard water spots ¾ way up the side of our motor home and covering the right side of our tow vehicle. I called the office and they basically didn't care. To make matters worse the sprinklers run every night. After two nights, the entire right side of our motor home was covered with hard water spots. Quiet hours are 10:00 pm to 7:00 am. One local camper starts his loud diesel truck at 5:50 am and runs it for 15 minutes before departing. Overall, this was a very unpleasant experience, especially considering what we paid for the stay-highly overpriced!

This is Not a resort. It is a high priced, run down campground. The roads have pot holes, the trees along the road hit the top of our RV, the trash dumpsters were overflowing, the camp sites are dirt or gravel, most sites are unlevel, and no Wi-Fi in the camp ground. Verizon cell coverage is very poor, no picnic tables, and empty beer bottles on the miniature golf course. After two days of overflowing trash dumpsters, there is a mass of trash lying on the ground around the empty dumpsters and no staff to clean it up. The campground is two miles from the lake and there are fees to use the lake. On the positive side, they have an attractive swimming pool area, a separate water slide for kids, and nice live oak trees on the property. It would not be so bad if it wasn’t so overpriced. Based on our experience, it should have been half what we paid. I heard the campground is in bankruptcy and also heard they are tied up in financial lawsuits. We will never stay here again.

We have stayed here for the past several years when passing through Wyoming. This campground is making continual improvements and we found it much cleaner and well kept on this visit. The owners are doing their best to improve this campground.

This is a very nice campground. They have made many improvements since we visited a year ago. New gravel, new pedestal wiring on some sites, much more attractive campground. And, this campground is military friendly. We enjoyed our stay.

This is an older campground where the owners have taken the pride, care and effort to update where possible. The owner greeted us upon arrival and was extremely helpful. To accommodate our motorhome, she positioned us across two smaller sites and that worked very well. We would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed here in previous years and were satisfied. This time, we were not happy campers. With the local oil boom, the campground has expanded with twice as many sites than previous and most of those sites are rented to oil workers. Don't get me wrong I am pro-oil and used to work for a major oil company. I like oil workers and am glad they are being accommodated. However, It appears the owners are raking in the profits and doing little for the occupants, especially those like us passing through. They gave us one of the new sites, a pull through. It had a new electrical pedestal. After settling in, I found the electrical pedestal was wired incorrectly. Instead of 50 Amp service, it had 30 amp. The wiring was phased incorrectly. This was evident by my Progressive Surge Protector and my PCS control system. I called the office and they sent a maintenance man. He had an attitude and blamed my surge protector on my 2012 motor home. I told him my surge protector was OK, to no avail. They would not accept responsibility for the incorrect wiring. I asked for a partial refund and was refused. They told me my only option was to move to another site. We decided not to and lived with 30 amp service for 2 nights. Also, the new sites are covered with large gravel with a white powder dust and gets tracked everywhere. They made no attempt to water and wash the gravel. It was a mess. Also, all the trash dumpsters were full to overflowing and no one seemed to care. We will never stay there again. It in one thing to have problems, but bad attitude of the owners is not to be tolerated.

We pulled into this campground at noon. The office was closed with instructions for self check-in. We picked a 50 amp full hookup site and set up our motorhome. Shortly after turning on our air conditioner, everything shut down. After investigating the cause, I found the shore power was fluctuating between 128 and 132 volts. When it reached 132 volts our Progressive surge protector shut the electrical system down. This happened several times in the first half hour. We decided to pack up and move to another campground rather than risk damage to our motorhome.

This campground is not big rig friendly. We have a 40 foot motorhome and asked for a larger site. Taking the office recommended route to our site, we encountered two trees with low hanging limbs that scraped the top of our motorhome. We had some difficulty getting our motorhome into the site because the road was narrow and the site was at an odd angle. It took three attempts to get it parked. I told the park workers about the low limbs and they were not trimmed during the two days we were there. The water pressure is low, fluctuating from 25 to 40 lbs. Not all sites are 50 amp. The 50 amp hookups were installed as an afterthought. Ours was inches off the ground and difficult to hook-up. This campground is in a beautiful location. It is OK for the RVs less than 40 foot but larger rigs might want to stay elsewhere.

This is a very nice campground that will accommodate larger motorhomes as well as smaller RVs. It is clean and well maintained. The perimeter sites have beautiful views of the valley. I would have given it a higher scores except for two issues: 1) Many of the pads are not level and may cause a problem. For our 40 foot motorhome both front wheels were off the ground after leveling. 2) The Wi-Fi is terrible, so slow it is unusable in the evening. Wi-Fi connections in mid-day were fair. And, they will only allow one Wi-Fi code per campsite. The Verizon broadband coverage was also poor in this area.

This is a very nice campground. They have spacious sites, good hook-ups and great satellite reception. This campground was underwater when the Mississippi flooded earlier this year. They have cleaned the campground very well but the shower/laundry/restroom building is closed until they repair or rebuild. We didn't need this facility so it didn't hamper our stay. Security seemed very adequate with casino personnel driving or walking through the campground on a regular basis. It is well lit at night. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again.

This campground is very overpriced. It is much like other campgrounds priced in the $30-35 range. It is basically a large lot with paved roadways and concrete pads with grass between the sites, nothing special to justify the price. We had a decent stay but my wallet was considerably lighter when we left. The water pressure is extremely high. An elevated train track is just north of the campground and there is considerable train noise at night. Fortunately, there are no crossings and therefore no train horns to add to the noise. The campground is also in the flight path of St. Louis airport.

Date of Stay:

This a long row of full-hookup campsites at the fair grounds. It is easy to access. The sites are long with good spacing between sites. All sites are back-in. We enjoyed our stay.

Date of Stay:

This is very nice campground. It is very quiet. You can walk to downtown Independence and several historic sites. The staff is very courteous.

Date of Stay:

We arrived in a 40 foot motor home. No one was in the office. The sites are on a hill and many were obviously not level. We selected a site that appeared to be the most level. We pulled into the site and could not level. The front end was too low. We left and went to another campground.

This is a great place to stay. It is a nicely laid-out RV park with easy access in and around the campground. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. This park allows active duty military to stay free and retired military get a $2.00 discount. I was pleased to stay in a place that appreciated our military. I will definitely return.
