Nice paved roads with gravel sites. Has fire rings at each site and baths are conveniently located. Nice lake for boating and fishing. Close to Honey Creek Resort state park which has a motel, restaurant, water park and golf course. These are all accessible without a park vehicle day use permit. Wish there were some walking trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the best camping stops we have ever made. Excellent place, neat as a pin. I wouldn't be afraid to camp next to the water, looked level, but not when I searched using Google Earth. We did go by the marina campground at Buck Creek, I wouldn't recommend that section, as it was full of "full-timers," and very crowded. We stayed in loop B. The RV dump was very good on the way out of the campground. Excellent view of the lake, very quiet, a few digital stations over the air TV. I would recommend staying a week. We were using US Route 34, so no interstates are nearby. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here often on our travels back and forth across the country. It is a nice COE campground with electrical hookups and pleasant sites with space around them. The campground is situated on a small arm of what is a big lake and if boating and fishing is your thing, this is a great place to be. And even if you are not a boater, this is a quiet, pleasant campground and a nice place to spend some time. We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This park used to be a state park that has been taken over by the county. The only amenities you get are electricity and peace and quiet. For us, that is the attraction of this park. You can't beat it for a relaxing weekend getaway. There are hiking trails down to the Chariton River and a huge stone shelter house with the largest fireplace I've ever seen. Fire wood is available at the entrance also. There is a nature center and some deer fenced in for kids to admire. Location is 2.8 miles east on Hwy. 2 from the intersection of Hwy. 5 in Centerville. Turn south on 248th Ave. (gravel) for 3/4 mile, then east on 250th Ave. for 1/2 mile. All sites are gravel as are the interior roads, but there are tables for each site and plenty of trash cans around. We found the sites to require some leveling of the trailer but not too bad. This park is best for units under 40 ft. At least 2 sites are pull through. There are pit toilets and no showers, but there is water and a dump station at the entrance. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
