Good access to the park off Historic Rt 66 from either Santa Rosa I-40 exit. Roads and sites are gravel, well spaced and the park is clean. We had no problems in/out with 38'MH towing. One big rig had a tight squeeze getting in but that was due to another rig pulled up to the very edge of the road across from his turn-in. There was a freeze warning and owner asked us to pull the water at 8pm. The park has a restaurant on site that we used when we were here Dec. 2013. It was snowing and we opted for delivery to our site. The food arrived quickly, it was hot and really good. You can't go wrong with the BBQ--good smoke and cooked low and slow. The restrooms/showers are old and look it but seem clean and are odor free but cold! We would return.

This is pretty much a big parking lot with a rock base and long, level pull-throughs. Access is very easy off the highway on the south side and we pulled into a site and then went in to register. Office is open 5-9 p.m. No cable but some antenna channels available and good WIFI. The restrooms and clubhouse are large and clean. The washers/driers could use some cleaning but work well and are good price. Check in is easy and friendly. The only real down side is there is a train track across the highway to the north and it's a main line so be ready for lots of trains. Fortunately we weren't bothered too much by them. It is a good park for one or two nights and it is our third stop here.

We have stayed at this park several times and enjoyed it each time. But, this time a little less because the drought has not been kind to the lake. It is dry. But that is just ambiance lost so the park remains pleasant and a good value. Sites are long and level, 20, 30, 50A and water. A dump is available. Shower house is older but clean and odor free. The only real noise last night was the raccoon in the trash bin. We would stay here again.

This is a basic mobile home park that also accommodates RV's. The sites are long, level, FHU with concrete patios. The manager is very friendly and makes you welcome. The Wi-Fi started out strong and fast until the network started assigning the same identifier to my and another computer. We saw a pool but it wasn't open yet. We did not see showers/toilets but in a mobile home park, probably not there. We stayed two nights and would stay there again.

Date of Stay:

When we got here there were no pull through sites available, but the back in was easy, gravel and fairly level. The owner is very friendly and helpful. There is WI-FI and cable and both work well. The bathroom/shower (yes-1) is clean but, we didn't use it. The park has what has to be permanent sites but most don't really look like it and those that do are very well kept. The residents we met are friendly. We were here for two nights and would return.

Owners are very friendly and helpful. Sites are gravel, fairly level and kind of close together but you can put your awning out with no problems. WiFi and cable TV work well. The restrooms/showers are clean and odor free. Laundry has two washers and dryers which are new and clean. We would stay here again.

Check-in is easy: drive in, find a site, park and set up. Check in when the office is open. This is a very mature pecan orchard with large trees. Sites are grass and level. There is some road noise at night as the highway goes to the bridge over the Mississippi River to Greenville, MS but not bad. The electric is good and steady, the WiFi and cable worked well. The restrooms were a surprise--bright, tiled very clean and odor free, not what is expected from the "rustic" outside. Not a lot of activities in the area but is a good park for 1 or 2 nights. We would stay here again.

Easy to find off the interstate and is well marked when you reach Lakeland Terrace at the Shell station on the right. The entry is narrow but not a problem towing or not. Not sure why an earlier rater had such an issue. The road to the campsites is gravel and dusty but is in pretty good shape. Our site was fairly level and fit our rig (38') with parking for the car in front. Electric was good and steady. The restrooms are elevated about 8 ft for flood events. I would guess and they were clean and odor free. There is a dump station just as you exit the park. The park rangers drive through frequently and are friendly and helpful. We would recommend this park and would stay here again.

A group of five units stayed at Indian Cave SP for three nights and found it quite pleasant. There is lots of shade and the grounds are very well kept. You need to chose your site carefully as many are not level and the size of the rig is important. There are 22 50 amp sites w/3 that can be reserved. A previous poster had problems with the power but we did not--a steady 120--and it was hot and humid. The park is worth exploring and the Cave is interesting. The interior roads are pretty good except in the campgrounds where washouts and erosion has created a real mess. The showers were clean and flush toilets are in the building. There are a lot of pit toilets throughout the park and are ok as pit toilets go, but they could use some lime. All in all, we had a good experience here and would return if they fix the roads.

Campground #1 is a tight cul-de-sac so unhook the car early. Sites are paved and fairly level. No trees for shade, they are in Campground #2. The park now has WiFi and it worked pretty good. The bathrooms are fairly clean and the showers are huge. All of the staff were friendly, especially the camp hosts. This is our first stay at a MO State Park and several people said it was representative of most. It is 6 miles or so from Branson, so was convenient. We stayed 5 nights and would return.

We were checked in by a very friendly staff and directed to our long, muddy, narrow but level pull through. The Wi-Fi was fair at night but really fast in the morning. They charge extra for cable and although I paid, I didn't hook up. We had planned on two nights but checked out the next morning. We were given a refund for the second night without hesitation. There is a lot of vehicle traffic on Maple street running in front of the park. If it weren't for the sites being so close together, this would be a higher scoring park.

Date of Stay:

We came in after the office closed but the available sites were posted on the door. The pull-through was gravel and level. The cable and WIFI worked well. The next morning check in/out was pleasant and the rate is PPA. Only odd thing was there was no hot water for a shower at 9pm or washing hands at 7 am. There was hot water at 9 am. I forgot to ask about that. The park is beginning to build an activity/pool building. A real gem. We would stay here again.

Entrance to the park from Historic Rte.66 is like pulling into a narrow 1940's motel drive because it is but don't let that put you off. The RV spaces are in the back. We were directed to our long pull-through by the very friendly owner. The site is gravel, level with easy in and out. They have 80 lbs water pressure. There are lots of trees and a community fire pit with a grill and chairs. Overall, it's not a "pretty" park but it has everything I like or need for one or several nights. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We were greeted by a friendly staff and checked in quickly. The deluxe sites are long and bordered on the sides by grass. The regular pull through sites are close and side by side hookups. The seasonal campers are separated from the short term sites. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked well. The 4 outside restrooms/showers are older and clean, but two of them were closed (for winterizing?) which made the other two pretty busy. There are two more in the clubhouse. The park is quiet and well maintained with good electric and water. We would camp here again.

This is our 4th or 5th stay here. The sites are gravel, fairly level with a concrete patio and table for each. The grounds are well kept with flowers and a central park type sitting area. Access to the park is fairly easy from I-70 via US 63. There is some road noise from the highway but not bad. The park was fairly full our first night and the heat caused heavy electric use. My meter showed it was steady at 113 VAC but back to 120 the second night when it was cooler. The restrooms are clean and well kept. The park prefers you make a reservation. It backs up to the fairgrounds so probably fills when events are going on. The pool closes when the office does, about 7 PM. As said before, beware of the two killer speed bumps as you come into the park.
