VERY, very rough around the edges. The people were nice, but the office is deadly with cigarette smoke. Even our registration paper smelled. Our site was relatively level and were just passing through, so we stayed. Lots of movies to rent for $1.25. I would not stay if I wanted to actually camp. The price we paid was the PA price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just stayed overnight on the way south. They put us next to an old junk bus with someone living in it. No one else in the park. We were not comfortable staying there. Water and electric very good and office staff friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Inexpensive, (with Passport America), very quiet, friendly, and easy to maneuver a 39 footer. What more could a full timer want? Wi-Fi? Nope, but our Alltel wireless worked quite well. Fancy amenities? Nope, but we are not looking for that. The things that really matter like clean 50 amp service, good water pressure, ease of getting in and out are all here. All in all, this is a good place to spend a few nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Super shady all sites. Entrance road is badly washed and rough. Absolutely no Verizon coverage for phone or air card. WiFi reportedly will work at the cg office 50 yds away from sites. Tried everything to connect. Big rigs can get in but will brush against tree limbs as we watched a big DP come in and leave. This is bare bones, but the essentials are here. Very wooded and shaded as mentioned. Don't expect much and you will be satisfied. The worst part is the appearance of the entrance, looks like a roadside bar, complete with neon beer sign and a neon "Open" sign!! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a private campground that we enjoy staying at. There are only a few sites with full hook ups. They are plenty long and easy to get into and out of. We needed a couple of leveling blocks to get level. The sites have a real fire ring with a movable grill surface, not a wheel rim, and they also have a charcoal grill at each site. There is nothing to do except enjoy the area. It is very quiet and thick with trees. Pull though sites are gravel as are the roads. There are no facilities such as pool, laundry or showers. AT&T phone service is iffy, the Verizon Air Card works. There are a few TV stations that you can get. Setting up a satellite dish is a maybe with all the trees If you want a cold beer at the end of the day there is a small bar in the office area. The owners are very good people and will help you with anything you need. We stay here every time we come to this area to visit family. Passport America is accepted. Credit/Debit cards are not accepted, Cash or Check only. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Little Ole Opry Campground is our favorite campground in the Jackson,Missouri, area because it is close to our grand daughters. The owner is a good ole country boy (farmer) that loves to visit with all the campers. My wife and I have been coming to the campground for 6 or 7 years. The campground is really kept clean and mowed by the camp host. I recommend this campground for a night, week, month or longer for just the beauty of the lake (good fishing at no extra cost except your bait). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for 2 months, and it was very relaxing. Fishing is available on lake. Owner is real friendly. On Saturday night they have country music in the Opry House at the entrance. No Wi-Fi or cell phone service at this time but it will be available by spring. Great get away to fish & relax. Other campers were great! At $10 a night you can't beat it. All sites are back-in under the trees so shade is no problem. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground (another is near Lake Boutin) is right next to the Mississippi River and in a serene setting until the trains start to come through, including the middle of the night, and because there is a crossing, the engineers lay on the horn. It could wake the dead and probably has. The shower house is quite a hike from the campground, especially on a hot day. If you shower in the large stall, the motion sensor light can't see you and suddenly you will be in the dark. Not a good feeling. Other than that, the park was quite nice and peaceful. Relatively clean, but not spotless. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We really enjoyed our stay here! We stayed in site ten under a big cottonwood tree. From our "backyard" you could see the barges move up and down the river. Also, there where train tracks with maybe a train or two a day going by. The park has trails and overlooks. Our site was level and next to the nicest campground hosts that we have ever meet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the Mississippi River Campground. Sites 4 through 10 have sewer hookups. Sites 1 through 10 have great views of the Mississippi River. There are lots of trees for shade. The pads are paved. We stayed 10 days this time. We have been here two other times. It is one of the few places where you can watch the towboats on the Mississippi while sitting beside your RV. Reservations are available. There is a coffee house and internet cafe in Cape Girardeau with free wireless internet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Full hookup sites are as close as you can get to the Mississippi River -- we could see the river from our campsite. Be forewarned: a railroad track goes right between the campground and the river (well fenced off for safety). Kids absolutely loved seeing the trains come through, but mom and dad didn't care for the noise during the middle of the night! Two trains came during the night and a couple more during the day. The full hookup sites are also VERY close together. Other than those negatives, the state park is beautiful, with a lot of unique wildlife and plantlife and some very interesting history regarding the Cherokee Indian relocation during the 1830s. The campground and playground areas are very well maintained and the campground hosts we met were very helpful and friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
