10 Parks near Boonville, Missouri

Folks, I would pass on this campground. Very neglected. Had to pay at gas station. People were living in filth (looked like full time) in their trailers. Pool was a swamp cess-pool that hadn't been touched in years. - pahasapa

This place is a dump. I notified Woodall's and they have pulled their rating. - Bob & Phyllis

The roads are washed out. So if you have a sedan you will not be happy going down that road. If you go to "RV resorts", you will find this place to be a dump. If you want to experience lots of weeds, unlevel sites, bugs, rabbits, maybe some rodents, then this is a good place. The sewer line backed up after i dumped about 50-60 gal. fortunately i was dumping my gray water. The owners have not spent a dime on maintaining this CG. I think they are just offering it "as is" and will close it if people stop going. They really don't care. It costs them nothing to run since the owner is the diesel truck stop (and the girls that work there can't answer any questions about which sites have 50amp vs 30amp, etc...) We stayed to get some rest and play at the local casino. Next time, (if there is a next time), we will stay at the truck stop and forget the CG. - basistrdr

RV Express is just a medium-sized, gravel, self-check-in lot with hook-ups, but it was very convenient because it's right off the highway. We expected that highway or other noise might be a problem, but it wasn't--the park is actually pretty quiet. Area felt very safe. Wifi worked. Hook-ups worked. The park was also convenient because it's just behind a 24-hour McDonald's, a gas station, and a Subway--also across the road from another gas station and a Taco Bell--and a 24-hour Wal-Mart is a mile up the road. The park is safe, quiet, and convenient. We'd stay there again. - Good Travelers

It's been said before, absentee owner and a drop box for your money. Crushed large stone lot, runs a little up hill to a high concrete retaining wall behind a service station. Services are very good, good water, power and sewer. 14 sites here with 7 taken by longtime residents in fairly good shape RVs. We parked in a pull through site, hooked toad up across street in McDonald's truck lot, since sites angle away from entrance. - Teacher's Pet

This is your basic overnight stop, although we did stay a couple nites. It's self pay with envelopes and a drop slot. There were what looked like a couple permanent rigs there but otherwise not too crowded. Even though we're a 40ft RV, we opted for a back in and found one that fit. We unhooked in the McDonald's truck parking lot across the street & also hooked up there when we left. The park is all gravel, so I walked my dog across the street at McDonalds. Convenient for breakfast too. We had good Verizon cell & air card here. Boonville was a nice surprise downtown & the casino is in town too. We came to see the Clydesdales. We never saw anyone running the place but didn't need to. Know ahead of time that the pull thrus are higher in cost. We'd stay here again for an overnight. Nothing fancy but we had full hookups w/50 amp service and sometimes that's all you need or want in a place. - Danni

A beautiful location with lots of trees and very few sites occupied even on a Friday night. Long pull-through sites, though only 4 sites had the 50-amp we desired. - Liv2RV

The first area that could use some improvement is the signage. ---it is somewhat difficult to find the camp ground and then to find where the RV sites are located in the campground. We arrived on a Monday night and pretty much had the place to ourselves. Some bicyclists showed up at about 9 p.m. and pitched their tents right next to our RV. This is probably not what should happen since there is a separate section for tent camping. The camp location is wonderful for people using the Katy Trail, --a popular hiking and biking trail. Another not so good surprise was the electric and water hookups were only at every other RV site, meaning two sites must share one hook up. Since we had our pick of which site we wanted, this was not a problem for us but could be a problem for those who don't have hoses and electric cables long enough to reach the opposite side. The bath shower house is very much in need of cleaning and fixing up. - stocky

We were here one night and were the only RV. The park is difficult to find; our GPS could not find it. Finally found a cop who gave good directions. Also, the staff was impossible to find; never saw a live body other than a few tent campers. Called the number on the website and always got voice mail but no callback. Finally sent email and did get response but it may have been automatic. When we left, put cash in an envelope and dropped it in a slot. This campground may be fine in summer when the Katy Trail is busy and it was fine for a one nighter but we probably would not stay here again. - Delbert

The Park is easily accessible from I-70. The park is well-maintained, with the shower house & bathrooms being tidy in the rv area. I've heard the amenities in the tent area may need some sprucing up. Nice walking trails and a great visitors center with a nice museum.
We stayed over Labor Day weekend and the park was quiet and peaceful. The stars are very visible on a clear night. - mizsec1

Price is because we got the only full hook up site there. All other sites are electric only or just basic sites. Very pretty & well kept campground. Lots of room between sites so you're not right on your neighbors. Camp hosts were very friendly & helpful. Campground is very close to historic & lovely little town of Arrow Rock. Would definitely stay here again. - bgw5350

We stayed in site #38, it was a little short for our 32' travel trailer and tow vehicle so we had to park sideways in front of the camper. The Verizon signal is slim to none and the park WiFi was not strong in this site. Park is nice with a hiking trail, potable water at the dump station, wood and ice for sale. Park was clean including the restrooms and showers. There is a small playground for kids. - kcjaybird

Still being worked on. Bathrooms but no showers. On river and close to bike trail. Good for dogs. Lots of room during week, supposedly fills up on weekends. - mjtesky

Quiet and out of the way. Good size slots. Host was not only gracious and accommodating, but beautiful. - Boondockdad

The positives of this campground were full hookup plus sewer, fairly close to interstate, nice host, quiet, and a boat dock. However the negatives overrode the positives for us. The small park was right on the Katy Trail and had a lot of potential. Sadly, it was overgrown and unkempt, other campers were few and a little questionable, the store was only open on weekends, and it was riverside but not scenic. It was like camping in a farm field that had not been mowed. We meant to stay and ride the trail, but we left after one night. Would not stay here again. - busyteach

This definitely was not a family friendly atmosphere. It is a place to go and party, if that is what you're looking for. There is not easy access for full size motorhomes because of narrow roads and low trees. - Harlee79

This is a good place to drink and party, I wouldn't take kids. It's hard to park in most sites. Weekends have many tent campers very close and walking through your area, there's very little privacy. There's one very small restroom in the store with one pay shower available during store hours and a few really nasty portable potties. I won't stop there again. - David's path

Call in advance, the campground is pretty far out in the country and small. I'm not sure too many big rigs could be accommodated. Amenities are way down on the 1-10 scale but the location and atmosphere more than compensate. A great view of the historic Missouri River, live entertainment and friendly locals added to the ambiance. It truly feels that you've stepped way back in time. The Thai food concession added to the wonder. If your thing is bicycle riding, you're situated on 30 miles of improved RR bed - fantastic riding. Coopers Landings is out of the way but unique and we would return in a heart beat. - richb

I'm surprised at the short reviews; there is a lot that can be said...with one caveat.
This is a large park that is clean and neat. It is being maintained constantly. Check-in was easy at a very nice store/gift shop/ office. They actually had a lot of products in stock, both food and camping supplies as well as souvenirs and gift items. We were able to buy milk!!
The grounds are manicured with a lot of flowering shrubs and plenty of shade trees. There is a large covered picnic pavilion with a big, big fire pit and lots of tables and grills. There is a pool that is clean and looked very inviting, though we didn't try it. Also a children's playground that looked new. Nearby was a very nice wooden gazebo for just relaxing out of the sun and enjoying the flowers. Each site has a picnic table and the front row sites each have a chimenea, but open fire pit fires are not allowed.
There is also a rally room and one of the nicest "Rec" rooms I have encountered with real exercise equipment, book and dvd exchange, and tables and chairs for just getting together.
The bathrooms are clean and well appointed, the showers were hot, though I believe the shower enclosures needed some scrubbing...probably hard water. Basins, mirrors and counter tops were all squeaky clean.
The "Heads-Up" for this campground: as mentioned over and over, the roads are narrow,and the sites are tight, making for very shallow turns. Get the walkie-talkies you use for back-ins and send your navigator out to help you pull into your site. Even the old pros who have pulled into thousands of campsites, should send someone out to watch. Large RV combinations definitely need extra help. Someone from the office will also help.
The park enforces overflow parking, the roads are as clear as possible, just not wide and decorative shrubs and boulders edge the site entrance and exit.
Drive careful and enjoy this wonderful oasis off the road. Relax! - Jack B

Beautiful park. Impeccably maintained, flowers everywhere. Good laundry, pleasant to walk around. Reasonably close to Columbia. Signs at the entrance say Drivers stay in your vehicles. What they mean is, don't park and walk in until you are first in line. We would stay here again. - SusanRon

This is and ATV park but also has biking and hiking trails as well as a lake/water trail. It was very quiet while we were there, perhaps due to the rainy weather. Park is about 10 miles north of Columbia on 63. Not hard to find but it doesn't jump out at you either. Campground is a couple of miles from the check-in so you have to drive in to find a spot and then drive back to register. Nice shower house and paved, mostly level sites. I would avoid the place in midsummer but it has several attractions that others no doubt value. - oldmac

Checked Friday, paid for both nights upfront. The owner complained that he could not read my signature on his ipad(uses card swipe). Ended up being charge twice because he ran it twice. He did return my call this morning and trying to rectify it. The restrooms/showers were locked and you had to have them unlocked by him, although once in the showers they were pretty clean. He claimed to have wifi, but did not. The high pressure sodium flood light lighting the campground was so bright one needed sunglasses at night. The pool had water in it, but not in use. The owner is a nice man, but all in all, would not stay there again.... - Randall Gibbs

This could be a wonderful campground. The owner of five years is selling after making some extensive improvements. However, more are needed. The roads are hard packed, but narrow and weedy. Same with the lots. Acres of rolling meadows and extensive playground equipment. However, there is no WiFi or cable and the pool is a disgusting mess. There are 6 or 8 permanent residents and few transients. The electric and water were good. If the new owner continues what the current owner started, this could be a real find. Until then, it is a pretty expensive stop considering what is there and closeby (nothing). - TBBGII
