A Corp of Engineer Park on Pomme de Terre Lake. This park is only a few miles from the other two listed for Hermitage. These parks are about 1/2 way between Springfield and Kansas City, MO. They all have a 6 PM check out and check in. On Sundays, many people stay until 4 PM or so to take advantage of the lake. Sites 113-123 are popular due to the shade and size of the sites, plus they have water at each site and most are satellite friendly. Sites 1-72 may have individual water but some have "shared" water which can require a long hose and a "Y" connector. The COE Project Office, at 417-745-6411 might be able to advise as which sites have individual water, if that is important to you. We had good Verizon and AT&T service and we could pick up all the Springfield TV stations. When we booked about 4 weeks prior to arrival, none of sites, 113-123, were available for weekends, but Sunday through Thursday was available. We were with a group of 10 other RV's. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The $8 rate is the Golden Age rate. Standard rate is $16 WATER: Most sites have "shared water". You can fill your tank at the entrance station or, in our case, we borrowed enough hose to reach 150 feet to fill the tank. Site 73 is a pull through with one of the water faucets. If you could call the host, before you reserve; they can tell you where the water spigots are. I do not have a phone #, and they are open early A.M. and then late afternoon if you find a phone #. This is a beautiful park with a lot of trees. Over the air TV only on 90% of the sites with 9 stations available. Verizon 3G service available, but slow. This park is just south of Nemo, MO, off Hwy 64, (my new GPS does not have "Nemo, MO" and calls Hwy 64 a "Road". Follow the directions on Rec.Gov from U.S 65, but turn left at the 4 way stop, which is "south", not "west". They are upgrading this park to change 30 Amp sites to 50 amp with water. There are a number of C.O.E. parks on this lake. During the summer, reservations are strongly recommended if you wish a pull through or big rig site, even during the week. The lake and park are about 2 hours from Kansas City and a little over 1 hour north of Springfield, MO, so it stays packed. If you go to the forum and search for Nemo Landing, I am going to post a few photos. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Awesome little spot just below the dam of Pomme de Terre Lake. We camp here in our 40' motorhome a lot. We think it's a hidden gem. There is lots of space between campsites and lots of big big trees. Has a newly finished nature trail through woods. The one bad thing I can tell you is that sometimes during warmer months the river smells very bad. It is usually when they are not pulling much water out of the lake. There is a playground, tennis courts, basketball goal, pavilions, baseball diamond, and group camp area. This is a Corps of Engineers Park. Only 14 sites are electric. And only about half would be good for a bigger rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
