We asked for a long pull-thru, so they gave us the longest one they had (190+'). Certainly overkill for any rig. It had no concrete pad, or BBQ grill, and was the farthest from the Wifi antenna. The ground was saturated from recent rain, and muddy. I wish they had mentioned any of that before they gave us that site. The park seems like a decent place for an overnight. Traffic noise would keep us from staying longer. Water and electricity were no problem.

We wanted to come to the area to explore the motorcycling roads, and this was the perfect campground to make our home base. They call themselves The Quiet Retreat, and we completely agree. No road noise, and incredible night sky. Very strong wifi, and water/power were fine. On-site owners are very nice and are committed to making your stay peaceful. Level gravel sites, and good room between them. If you're in to motorcycling, this area has the best roads we've found in the US. We'd give Ozark View a perfect 10 if the roads and sites were paved. We will certainly be back.

We needed a base of operations to travel to two weddings and this location is close enough to the airport and major interstates to make it feasible. We stayed here for 6 weeks. The park itself is very nicely landscaped, and very clean. Concrete pads and paved roads are what we look for for our motorcycle. Wifi, electricity, and water pressure were good. Our biggest complaint, and what will prevent us from returning except for an overnighter, was the traffic noise. Not from the interstate, but from Parvin Road. The park is right on the edge of a large industrial park consisting of heavy truck dealers and repair centers (look at it from Google Earth). There is constant diesel engine noise day and night. Since Parvin Road is a hill, most trucks use (LOUD) diesel braking on the way down. We tried to sit outside one night and couldn't have any type of conversation. As an overnight it should be fine, but I wouldn't spend any significant time there. Also, depending on which way the wind is blowing, you may be overcome be the smell of the nearby asphalt plant.

We were originally going to stay here for 2 weeks, but within two days we signed up for 3 more weeks. The owners are true RV'ers, and understand just what we need. They don't crowd campers together if they don't need to, and they don't have a lot of ridiculous rules (just common sense). The owners are the friendliest we've run into. The park is situated conveniently off I-29, but there's no road noise. It's also half way between Omaha/Council Bluffs and Sioux City, making day trips a breeze. All of the utilities we look for (Wifi, water, power) worked great. The area (the heart of the Loess Hills) was great for motorcycling. The sites are gravel, with tall shade trees. We usually don't care for trees (due to our satellite dish and tall RV), but the owners trim all of the branches way up, so there's never a problem, but there is shade. They also have propane on site. We would have given them a 10 if the sites and road were paved. We would definitely stay here again.

The good: paved campground road, full and level concrete pads, wonderful staff, great facilities, lovely view of Guntersville Lake, quiet area, snf roomy sites. The bad: Horrible Wi-Fi, 15 miles from stores, and rough parts of the 10-mile road to park (route 67). This campground would have rated a 9 if it weren't for the Wi-Fi. We were less than 75 yards from the office, had great signal strength, and there were only 2 other people in the park. The problem (confirmed by the staff) is that the absentee owner has throttled the bandwidth to the point where it's useless. Every 15-30 minutes the site will require a new log-in with the security code. Anything you were working on will be lost. Simple email takes an eternity. Don't even attempt any type of data transfer (it will never finish or will fail). The nightly rate reflects Windemere's discount for a two-week stay. We will not stay here again.

The good: beautiful location (river on one side, view of the Smoky's on the other), nice level sites, wonderful staff (the best we've ever run across), area activities, and beauty. The bad: 5mph speed limit on a LONG campground road to the sites takes time. The rate shown includes discounts for a 3-week stay. We would definitely stay here again.
Date of Stay: September, 2013
The good: level and roomy sites, good pull-through room, nice setting (pond, hills, etc), wonderful staff, and beautiful surrounding area. The bad: permanent residents leave for work starting at 5am (and they all have loud pickup trucks), 24/7 truck/road noise from I-70 for any of the non-permanent sites (the ones closest to the road) is horrible. The rate listed reflects discounts for a two-week stay. The road noise, for us, is a killer and we won't be back.
Date of Stay: September, 2013
The good: real gated security, paved interior road, helpful staff, well-kept campground, level and roomy sites, nice facilities, resort town nearby, and lots to do in the area. The bad: drainage in severe weather and gravel sites. This was our first campground on our new journey as full-timers, and this campground spoiled us. Except for a paved or concrete pad, you couldn't ask for more. The rate listed reflects the discount for a two-week stay. We'll be back if we're in the area again.
