This is a very nice clean campground. Perfect for big rigs. The offered cable is free, but only 18 channels, no sports stations. They offer free Wi-Fi now, but it is very weak. Verizon/Sprint was adequate. All sites level, many different price levels, the most expensive are more spacious. We choose a back-in close to the office, these sites are fairly close together. We paid $183 for 4 nights, that is 3 nights off-season, 1 night on-season and a ton of taxes. Everything here is first class and clean. Plenty of room to walk the pup. We would stay here again.

All previous reviews were right on. This park is very well laid out. The road in is gravel/dirt, but well taken care of. The office is a cute little building, with landscaping. There are horses in a corral to greet you. Office staff were Workampers and very nice. The free ice cream is still offered. You are given an escort to the site and help parking. The sites all very nice with green grass between sites. Large picnic tables and grills. Some sites are a little unleveled but not too bad. The pup loved all the areas to walk. The view from the campground is great, a pasture with cows, green hills with birds singing in the morning. The Wi-Fi was very good. Verizon/Sprint worked OK. If you are looking for a clean quiet place to spend a few days this is it. We would stay here again.

This has the look of an aging park. It needs some TLC. Sites are level, some close together. The cable is well worth the extra $2.00 a night. Wi-Fi worked very well. Verizon/Sprint service adequate. The area to walk the pup is limited.

We arrived here a few days before the campground was opened for the season. Electricity was available but the water was not turned on yet. We had the campground to ourselves, just the host and one other camper. The staff was busy getting the park ready for the weekend. It is a great park with lots to do for the family, but we think for us, the park could feel crowded during season, but the families would love it. Sites are level, nicely spaced, utilities are well placed. The campground is right on the Missouri River, with nice paved walking trails next to it. Received over the air TV stations, sites are available for satellite view. Our Verizon/Sprint signals strong, the pup loved the area. This is a wonderful campground and would stay here again.

We would say this is a good place for an overnight stay. It is only $10 for full hookup. These are paved sites in the parking lot. Walking distance to the casino, where you can use the restrooms, eat at the restaurants, and spend the money that you saved for the site. Antenna could only pick up a couple of stations, Verizon hotspot worked well. You can use the WiFi in the hotel. Sprint phone service not very good. The pup had to walk around the perimeter of the parking lot, not one of her favorite places. We would stay here again if passing through.

This is a well run, clean city campground. This is a no reservation park, so keep in mind It fills up quickly with locals on the weekend. There are two loops, the Pulpit Rock side that was very busy with lots of families. The office directed us to the Twin Springs side which only had a few campers in it. There is a pretty creek running between the two loops. Many families playing and fishing in it. The campground is well laid out, with many trees and grassy areas between sites. The trees make getting a satellite view difficult. The campground wifi was very weak, even after the park emptied out on Sunday. Our Verizon Mifi card was adequate. Sprint phone service was just ok. Great areas to walk the dog. The electric hookup was very strong, no water or sewer hookup. Potable water to fill your tanks, and each loop has a dump station. The only negative for us, is the traffic noise from route 52. Ask for a site away from the road if it may bother you. This is a nice park just to relax for a few days, we would stay here again.

We arrived after the office was closed. Easy after hours check-in with available sites clearly marked, deposit envelopes supplied, pay by either cash or credit card. Previous posts fairly accurate, a little noise from highway and trains, but not too bad. Sites are level and a good size for an overnighter. Campground very neat and clean, nice grassy dog walk area with poop bags supplied. Some shady sites so if you have satellite by sure to ask for a clear site. Cable supplied, very basic but adequate. Verizon and sprint good signals. There is wifi available but we didn't try it. We would stay here again.

This is our second stay here. This is a very good park to use for an overnight or to spend a few days in the area. All sites nicely spaced, crushed gravel. A nice size dog park with a paved walking path around a small pond. Update from last report, the management has Direct Tv as their cable provider, so all sites have cable access. Verizon mi-fi worked well. We stayed here in a travel trailer. We would stay here again.

This is a good place for an overnight night stop. Fairly good interior roads, sites all level pull-throughs with Ok space between. Sites are gravel with a small cement patio. Very little grass or trees. There is a very nice playground for the kids. A very nice dog park. Only 2 washers and dryers for the whole park. The park is well kept, even all the residents keep their lots clean. Only 4 Uni-sex bathrooms which have the toilet and shower behind the same door. The office told us that there in no more Cable TV. Internet is as expected with this many sites. There are many rules, but that is what keeping the park clean. It had a feel of a parking lot to us, but fine for an overnight stay.

It is all about location and this campground has that. We were lucky enough to get a lake front site. And it was great. The harbor area is beautiful. The downtown area is a short walk with restaurants and shopping. We stayed a week and the rate reflects that price. During the week, nice and quiet, over the weekend lots of kids and quite crowded. Verizon and Sprint worked well. Lots of room to walk the pups. Variety of sites, from tents to big rigs. Some sites are a little close together and small. This will be one of favorite places to come.

We stayed in the "new" section on the top row. Nice level sites, the size and spacing of the sites are fine. Any size rig can fit, I do agree with previous post that the curbs could make it a little challenging. Traffic from the road can be heard. But the view from these sites are what you are paying for. Across the street is the original section. There are water front sites there, but some of the sites are small and close together. It is a more natural area with trees. The pups loved the room to walk. No WiFi, but Verizon and Sprint both worked well. Short drive to lighthouse and historic downtown. We would definitely stay here again

We stayed at this very nice COE park for 4 nights. We came during the week. The weekends are very crowded this time of the year. We were given a spot in the Nash Flats area, an area all paved that is usually used for groups. This spot was perfect for us, a quiet area, the front of our RV faced the Lake, with a beautiful view, and always had a nice breeze. No sewer hookup. The park itself, is very well taken care of. Some of the loops are a little more crowded than others. It just depends what you like. Verizon/Sprint worked well. Be careful going into any grassy or wooded area with your pups. The ticks are very bad this time of year. The only thing is that golf carts are allowed in the park and they can be a little noisy. This is a great park to visit the LBL area. We will definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice park for an overnight stop. Good interior gravel roads, level sites. You have a choice of shade or open view for your satellite. Nice room to walk the dogs. Park is very clean, bathhouse is older but very clean. Verizon Hot Spot/Sprint phone worked well. We were met as we pulled in and escorted to a site. We were told to come up to the office after we set up. How nice is that. We would stay here again.

Price reflects Passport rate. We stopped here for a night, this is before all the snowbirds come back, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The office was closed for the weekend. There were envelopes supplied to deposit your payment. If you ever need a place for the winter with lots of activities, this looks like the place to be. It has a nice dog park, They have Wi-Fi, but you have to pay for it. A Walmart, that we walked to. We would stay here again, off season.

This was just an overnight stop for us. Don't usually stay at KOA's but this was an easy on/off. There are 2 parts of the park. The front has trees and a little rustic looking. The overnighters are lead to the back area, just flat side by side sites. Don't know if I would call this a "lake front". There is a retention pond at the front, so I don't know. It was ok for a night. We did get free cookies.
