The bathrooms and showers were clean, but stalls were short so that when you stood you could see the rest of the bathroom and the showers were a tad small. Still, not bad. The pool was extremely clean and had many activities (Foosball, ping pong, etc.) for people to play at. Mostly seasonal campers, but great even for just overnight! Overall, a really great experience - oh, and the service here was great! Every time I have met a staff member here, I have been impressed with their quality of service. All in all, a great time. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Have stayed here several times visiting friends in area. Will stay here again any time in area. Very nice people, small but like the layout. Not a fancy place but was always here either at just the end of winter or early to mid fall so either trees are not yet filled out or void of leaves. During height of summer, with pool weather, fully leafed out trees would be very nice. Only thing some won't like is that park is right next to a fairly heavy traveled road so noisy. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Motorhome.

If you are near the road it gets noisy in the mornings. We always take a box fan to cover the noise.

Lovely farmhouse surrounded by mostly permanent RV sites studded with mature trees. Transient pull-thru sites are very level but next to the road which can be busy at times. Very easy utility connections, very good wifi, good Verizon signal, able to get a good satellite shot from our site. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground was very nice and the owners were especially helpful and friendly. They checked me in and helped me back in, even though I arrived after normal office hours. They even helped me fix a minor problem on the RV. The site was level and the utilities well placed. The Wi-Fi was good, although not secure. I only stayed one night, so I didn't have opportunity to make full use of their facilities, but the restroom was clean and well maintained. Very reasonable for a full hookup site. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Motorhome.

We stopped at the park for 1 night and traveled on. Very clean park and the gravel sites were level and not necessarily large. Would stay again for an overnight. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice small family-run campground just a couple miles off I-70. (AUGUST 2013 ALERT: I-70 in Richmond is in horrible shape. Pay very close attention to the flashing boards/signs warning of "rough pavement ahead". There's a particularly bad spot on the right edge of the right westbound lane right before this campground's Exit 153. You WILL sustain damage if you hit this and some of the other bad spots at full speed. Stay well behind a semi and keep an eye on it - you'll see it swerve or hop if it hits it ,and you can react accordingly. The bad spots seem to be near bridges. Eastbound lanes are just as bad/worse! You'll see truck/car parts all over the place just past the bad spots.) The campground has a nice assortment of shaded or full-sun transient sites. Some sites can be tricky backing in with the big trees, but the owner will accompany you and advise accordingly; they know what they're talking about! Pool and surrounding area were spotless despite heavy use. Owners were very visible, going around keeping an eye on things, but NOT acting crabby/police-like like some other campgrounds we've been to. Extensive playground directly across from some sites. Easy access to the White River (actually a shallow creek in that area) for wading, crawdad hunting, etc. Our site 54 backed up to the creek and heavy woods - very nice in late August with all the bug/frog sounds at night. Hard-packed gravel interior roads and pads/sites. Other reviews mentioned the state highway right next to the campground. We were in the "back" where most of the transient sites are and really didn't notice it too much. What we did notice was the nearby church's outdoor service at 8:15am Sunday. Holy Moses! (pun intended) Their music was loud and "boomy" with heavy base - vibrated right through our newer 5th wheel and woke us up! We thought it was some idiot teenager in his car or something! And to think the first time we drove by, we thought "Gateway Vineyard" was where we could do some wine tasting, LOL! Since it was a church service, after all, I guess we won't hold that against the campground. The seasonal sites appeared neat, well-maintained, and occupied by newer/well-maintained units. We will be back to this campground. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Spaces are a little tight, and some of the transient spots are right next to the highway that runs by the campground. Overall this campground is very nice and comfortable. They have a nice pool and the park is well maintained. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Motorhome.

Just a quick overnight, but the park was good for a night to relax as we were heading to Mo. and had tire problems. Lady that checked us in was very accommodating and friendly. Grand daughter enjoyed the pool. The seasonals were very welcoming. The internet was nonexistent. Nice size pull through site, but a little noisy as the main road was right behind us. Good access to Rt. 70. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Shore Power 50/30/20 in our site #20. This site as well as others are right along side the road past the park. Daytime road noise is distracting. Water is good but from a well. Water pressure is 40 PSI. Sewer is good. Road into park is paved but short. Roads inside park are gravel. Sites are gravel. This park was a farm some years ago and was made into an RV park. The sites were carved out and squeezed around making them located in very unusual places. The site we were in you have to park the trailer back a long way and park up front. This provides easy access. If you park the trailer up front for easy access to services then you must park behind the trailer and back up along 4 or 5 sites to get out. Verizon and Sprint Air Cards have weak signals. Campground Wi-Fi work very well at our site but we are right by the antenna. AT&T cell phone signal is good. No cable TV. There are a number of long term tenants, which were very neat. Our location can get satellite access but those in the back of the campground will have trouble because of trees. Sites are close but have enough room to extend awning. Good Sam Discounts and AAA but that is all. Payment with credit cards accepted. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped for one night while returning home from the east. Park was very clean and well maintained. There is no store to speak of and we did not use any of the other facilities. We were disappointed with the Wi-Fi as it was less than reliable. About half the park appears to be permanent units, but they all looked clean and and well kept. Our site was easy to access and very level. We will use this park again if traveling through or even if we were staying in the area for few days. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Motorhome.

Close to a road that was fairly quiet but every once in a while the noise was noticeable. The choice of trees in each site was questionable. Chestnuts and walnuts. You can imagine the sound of the fruits on the camper roof at night!! The other hazard was trying to walk on the walnuts in the campsite. The people were quite nice. It was fine for an overnight stay but that was all that I would want. The bathrooms were clean but only the basics. Two showers (one behind the other). Luckily the campground was not crowded. Laundry was nice and clean. Again, an overnight stay would be fine. We camped at Grandpa's Farm Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
