Nice campground. We stayed at top of the hill in an extra long pull through with concrete patio and level gravel sites. Sites are buddy sites. The problem is you look out window and see the rv next to you up close - unless they pull forward to where they should be (theirs was not). Nicely landscaped park and well taken care of. Camp hosts are friendly and very helpful. They take you to your site, so no hunting for it. Would have given a 9 except for buddy system which would have been great if staying with friends. Clean laundry room with plenty of machines. Would stay there again. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

We spent a week here. The sites on the hill are buddy sites that you share with your neighbor. The driver's side of your unit faces the neighbor's driver side and the utilities are in between. The sites are quite long. Ideally one visitor parks at one end and the other visitor parks at the opposite end of the pull thru spot. Unfortunately our neighbor was parked back about 15 feet too far making them somewhat even with our unit. The good thing was they weren't using their RV so we had privacy. The goal is to have your steps come out over the concrete slab. The utilities work well here. Trees are perfectly placed. There are firepits and a nice table at each site. We didn't use the bathrooms but suspect they are clean. The roads are easy to maneuver. The laundry is spotless with six nice washers and six nice dryers. The price is reasonable. It's close to the lake. Nice place with awesome staff. We will return! We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice and quiet campground. Good value. Lots of flat gravel pull-through spaces for big rigs, most unoccupied or for a few overnighters like us. Most sites were shaded with good utilities. Restrooms were clean with adequate showers, but bathroom building is somewhat old and unfinished. The big problem with this place is finding it. DO NOT RELY ON GPS - not even close and no clear directions! They should add their long/lat coordinates to their website. Until then you must call to have them "guide you in". We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

The sites gigantic! At first we thought that two rvs were intended to park in our site but it was all ours! It's a clever layout. The rig in the next site pulls in facing the other direction so both sites get a bit of privacy on the entry side (where you might set up patio chairs, etc.) and the utilities are between the rigs. We had grass and trees and shade. There are chickens that wander around and the proprietors sell fresh eggs for $2.50/doz. There is a tiny church on the property and Sunday service is offered. The bathrooms are nothing special, cinderblock walls and concrete floors, but they are clean. The owners and camp hosts are very friendly and attentive to any possible need. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Surf Ballroom where Buddy Holly gave his last concert is preserved exactly as it was that night. You can visit for $5/person. There are excellent restaurants in town. The Fieldhouse, Tiki Bar and PM Park are three.

LONG pull thrus. We pull a car trailer and I was able to pull in, take down the car and still have room left over. They use the "buddy system" where one goes in one way and the other comes in the other way. They were nice enough to place us by ourselves as the park was not full yet. Lovely setting with lots of shade. Nice host and hostess. Oh, if you want to shop at Walmart of Hy-Vee, it's 12 miles away. The host said "4 mile" but it's longer. Electric hookup was right at the ground level. I had to get on my knees to plug it in. WiFi worked great. Water pressure was good. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

It's a lovely, quiet campground surrounded by corn and bean fields. The sites are long, flat and gravel covered with a concrete patio. Our section was laid out as buddy sites so you are facing the camper beside you. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Be sure to check out the Surf Ballroom. And don't miss the Green room where hundreds of artists have signed the walls, doors, ceiling and even the sink! If possible, attend a dance there. Lots of fun. The Buddy Holly Crash site is a little hard to find, but worth it.

We camped here two separate nights with friends. We were in the back, newer area in a pair of "buddy" sites. Sites were gravel and exceptionally level and long with well located full hookups and concrete patios. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We would use this campground anytime we are in the area. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tried the state park first: crowded and noisy, very noisy. Went up the road to Oakwood and very glad we did. Nice wide spot "up the hill", easy in/out, utilities worked as advertised.The ladies who were the hostesses could not have been any better. They were fun to interact with, knew the area well and kept the campground orderly, quiet and clean. Would stay here again. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our site was very long and level. We got a satellite friendly site. Over the air TV was good. We were next to the "telephone" booth which had a WiFi AP so our internet was good. Good laundry, honor system $2.00 per load.

Side by side utilities, but we did not have any one next to us. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Surf Ballroom is about 5 miles away and worth seeing. The site of the plane crash , Richie Valens, Big Bopper, Buddy Holly is just a short drive north of town. The area of the crash site was muddy and had lots of mosquitoes. We were lead to our site by the camp host.

Basic long gravel pull-thrus. Nothing fancy. Kind of out in the middle of "no where", but was a place to stay for the night and we didn't have to un-hook! Nice lady, nice shady site, level. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.
