This campground is open--at least it was open the end of July. The owners said if they received more rain they would have to close again. The condition of the grounds was poor due to the recent flooding, and that is reflected in the price. It was OK for a place to stop for the night. The owners were there when we arrived, but the instructions on their voice mail are for self-registration. DO NOT follow your GPS instructions; you will end up on a dirt road in the middle of cornfields. The directions posted in the camping books are correct. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This may a nice campground, but right now it is closed due to flooding. The problem is you don't know this until you get there because the phone number currently is a fax number and the website doesn't work. Fortunately, we were heading East and the Governor's Inn campground was less than an hour away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a wonderful little campground! Prairie Haven is quiet and shady. The facilities are not brand new, but are meticulously maintained. Although it's small, they have some pull-throughs, some back-ins, and some tent sites. They have some 30 amp and some 50 amp sites. We had no trouble getting in or out, with our 40 foot coach with a car in tow. Prairie Haven is just what we were looking for. No frills, no pool, no WiFi and $22 for the Good Sam rate. It really beats the $54 KOA charged me the next night! The cell phone and air card worked fine. Hostess was very friendly and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. We enjoyed this campground so much, that on the way out we changed our return plans so we could stay here again. Whenever we pass through this area, we'll make it a point to stop here.

The price reflects the Good Sam discount and is for a full hookup, pull through site. The person who checked us in was friendly and helpful and guided us to our site. The hookups were well located and in good condition. The bathrooms and showers were exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. Our site was level and very roomy with grass and shade. There was a picnic table but no fire ring. There is a community fire ring by a small pond. The access roads were gravel but in good condition. There are several sites suitable for big rigs. This park is near the freeway but was reasonably quiet. The outdoor area could be a little neater, it was slightly unkempt but not bad. This is a pretty small basic park but we were very happy here and would stay here again. Call for directions because your GPS will not bring you here. My Air Card worked well here.

Although the park was right next to the interstate, we did not hear traffic noise. The large trees provide a nice visual and noise barrier. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The park does not have internet service and our air card did not work consistently. There also was not a laundry facility. Maneuvering our big rig was a bit tight, but the space was level and roomy when parked. The restrooms and showers were clean and the on-site store offered many conveniences as well as fuel. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
