A first class Missouri State Park of which they can be very proud. We are not fisherman, but the trout fishing apparently is world class. The bottom campground can hold any size rig and has full hook ups. There is a VERY steep paved road up the hill to all the other campgrounds, which are not as level or open as the bottom area. I would never take a larger rig up that steep hill. I would estimate the grade close to 20%. Reservations, we hear, are a must, and we were lucky to get the last available site when we were there. Good cell reception. This was a gem and we are glad we got into see it. Some campgrounds shut down the water after October 15th for freezing prevention. - elduque

Full hookup campground has level, paved, reasonably sized sites. Within a few yards of the trout stream that seems to be the main attraction. I'm not a fisherman but this is still a great place to visit. They have several campgrounds including the whole range of amenities from none to full hookups with wifi. The wifi isn't great but it's better than most campgrounds. - ljr

Campground located in a state trout park. Very nice campground, well laid out and very maneuverable with a large rig. The lodge has nice restaurant that caters to the fishing crowd. - SL592

We stayed here for one night on our way home from the Indy 500. (it gets a 5 star rating for just having a great shower for the first time in 4 days! :)
Beautiful park, with lots of space. We appreciated that we were given a site far from other campers, since the park wasn't very busy. It was nice to have some privacy after spending 4 nights smooshed together at the race. We would definitely come back. - jensenly

Right accross the highway from Bennett Springs State Park entrance.
Hummingbirds galore. Large level concrete pads, spacious sites, grassy, clean. Great value on float trips and river front access for swimming or fishing, laundry and playground. Hot spot at the office.
We stayed here 4 nights for a Pony Express HitchHiker Rally.
Staff were very friendly. Not much shade as the trees a still very young.
Also have a long term section that is extremely reasonable.
Definitely would come back. - Calibrateguy

This was a very nice park on the Niangua River. It was typical RV park spaces with full hookups that were level and about 15 ft between RVs. It was early in the season so there were few campers, it would be very busy if full as there are a lot of sites. - viadelmangos

You have to take a two lane country gravel road to get to it and it is very twisty, but it is worth the peaceful serenity of the campground when you get there. The RV sites are not fancy, basically a grass field with some RV sites set up with electricity and water to hook up to. Campground sponsors float trips down the Niangua river. Mostly caters to tent campers or I guess Boondockers, but I've never seen anyone do that. This is definitely a family campground. They will run rowdy drinkers off or not allow them to set up camp to start with. They have a really neat tepee setup to stay in as well. Check out the web site for more info. - texasbrons

Price is based on a monthly rate of $245. The restrooms and showers are very clean. Spots are narrow but they stagger where you park with in effect gives you two sites. Sites are gravel and level or close to being level. This park is 3 1/2 miles from the main entrance to Bennett Spring State Park where you can fish for trout. There are restaurants close by. We will stay here if in the area again. - daverich

Stopped here on our way from Clinton MO to Tulsa OK. Only a few sites are available as most of the other sites seem to be full-time or seasonal. Check-in person was friendly. Would probably look for something closer to I-44 if in this area again. - Suddjian

Store in front is nicely stocked, close to Bennett Spring State Park, beautiful pool, clean facilities. LP Gas and Firewood (ice too) sold at campground also. Less than 10 minutes outside of Lebanon, off I-44, and about 5 minutes from Bennett Spring State Park. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Sites are gravel with electric, water, and sewer hookups. We did have to use leveling blocks, but nothing major. There is a large tent camping area in the rear of the campground. Shower house is clean - laundry room available too. There are a lot of RV campgrounds around the area - this one is one of the best. - CortezRV

22 over air channels. Large dog park next to my unit with well trimmed grass between spaces. Nice, large, clean, laundry room & shower. PA price is cash only.
Quite nights with some road noise from the straight piped semis on the interstate. Good water pressure & friendly park. Wish I had more time as I would have stayed longer one of the better parks @ a terrific price. - Edd505

Electric & Sewer good, Water @ 40 psi. Wi-Fi is not strong at the back sites. AT&T Cell Phone signal is strong. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card was fair. Sites are level side to side but a bit low in the front. Sites are very long, wide and gravel. Site are very far apart with nice grass in between. Roads and Sites are gravel. Some Long term tenants but the sites are neat and clean. DirecTV Satellite is easy to access. Have two Dog runs. One at the entrance and one at the first of the last row of sites. Payment was with credit card. - TXBobcat

Small park behind a motel complex. Site very level. Restrooms need to be sanitized - showers grungy. Host was polite, but registration area reeked of cigarette smoke. Good place to stay for one night. There is a great family restaurant near downtown Bolivar. - bostonblackie

This is a typical state park with the normal amenities. Electric and water at the site with a centrally located dump station. Nice quiet, clean park. Our pad was asphalt and not very level and had no view of the lake. Antenna TV reception was fair, no cable. WiFi was very weak, probably would be better for those camped closer to the ranger booth. Had picnic table with a roof over it and a fire ring. Did not use public restrooms. Roads are a little tight in places, due to trees. But manageable. Will stay here again if back this way. - Tooljunke

We stayed on the Pittsburg side of the state park in loop 3 during the middle of the week at $17/night for premium electric. Weekend rates jump up to $23 a night for electric premium sites. This campground is not gated like many of the places we have stayed at, but check-in was fast and easy. Loop 3 starts at the top of the hill then dips down to the lake level. There are about 40 electric only sites in loop 3 and many near the lake are close together or have obstructions like trees, slopes, deck railings or short driveways that prevent anything larger than a pop-up or short hybrid from using them. If you have a rig with a slide, awning or anything over 20' long, check the state's website for this campground on each site's restrictions or drive through the loop and check them out yourself if you don't have a reservation. Many of the sites near the lake are close together but we chose a site near the top of the loop with some privacy. The door side of our site had a nice slope right off the step and my kids fell a few times in the loose gravel off of the concrete pad. The slope prevented us from sitting under the awning or using any of the space on the door side of the TT.
The lake level was 12' higher than normal so the swimming beach was closed and bank access to fishing was nearly impossible. The restrooms were clean but there are limited showers and flushing toilets for a CG this size. Lastly, the dump station is a bit crude and did not have a faucet with a threaded end to allow me to use my tank flusher. - Iraqvet05

This park is on a large lake and has big spacious sites and lots of birds. We saw eagles, loons, three kinds of woodpeckers and there were some really lovely sites right over the water. There are big generous boat ramps. The fishing looked great watching the fishermen pulling in fish after fish from our shore. The park roadways are small and narrow with many trees and we barely managed to drive around with our 30ft rig pulled by a pickup. Also there are some VERY steep grades 13%ish that really gave my low gear and four wheel drive a workout so I would not recommend it for big or overloaded rigs. - Judy Birchland

Good campground right off I-44 for overnight stay. Beautiful trees in a rustic campground setting. Full hookups, firepits, grill, and picnic table. Our site (#35) was gravel/dirt pull-through that was plenty long for our 5th wheel and truck. It wasn't perfectly level, but not too bad. Staff was friendly and provided an escort to our site. A little noise from the highway but that's to be expected when campground has such easy access to I-44. Not far from grocery stores, restaurants, and fuel. - Smashcamp

All gravel pull thru sites in different lengths. Mostly level. The park seems to go into disrepair, and the facilities needs to be maintained better. Some noise from the highway, but not excessive. OK for a overnight stay while travelling, but IMO not a destination park. - Jensvilhelm

OK overnight stay traveling south. Roads and sites are gravel, site was fairly level and long enough to not have to unhitch. Roads were narrow with tight turns. Quite a bit of highway noise even with all vents closed. Several miles into town for take out food. - Mudpuppy78

Rate reflects Golden Age discount. Nice park, on the lake side of the Dam on Pomme De Terre Lake. Sites on the water are quite close together and there is no shade. The sites on the water have level enough parking but you do go down a slope to get in. Sites are gravel as are patios. As with most water sites you have to contend with people walking thru empty spaces and sometimes even occupied ones to get to the water. Some sites on further up on the bluff seemed a little more spacious. The water sites do have steps down to the bank of the lake. Electric was steady, water pressure was 60PSI. These are not full hook up sites, however there is a dump going toward the exit. Park Attendants were friendly and site was clean when we arrived. Other than the camp attendants, we saw no other staff presence. There is a very nice walking trail on the other side of the dam, one is .5 miles, the other is 3 miles. Very easy to walk, there are a few short upgrades. Our Verizon phones worked well here but wi-fi was a little weak at times. We would stay here again if in the area. - Fixn2gocamp

A Corp of Engineer Park on Pomme de Terre Lake. This park is only a few miles from the other two listed for Hermitage. These parks are about 1/2 way between Springfield and Kansas City, MO. They all have a 6 PM check out and check in. On Sundays, many people stay until 4 PM or so to take advantage of the lake. Sites 113-123 are popular due to the shade and size of the sites, plus they have water at each site and most are satellite friendly. Sites 1-72 may have individual water but some have "shared" water which can require a long hose and a "Y" connector. The COE Project Office, at 417-745-6411 might be able to advise as which sites have individual water, if that is important to you. We had good Verizon and AT&T service and we could pick up all the Springfield TV stations. When we booked about 4 weeks prior to arrival, none of sites, 113-123, were available for weekends, but Sunday through Thursday was available. We were with a group of 10 other RV's. - johnwadams

Awesome little spot just below the dam of Pomme de Terre Lake. We camp here in our 40' motorhome a lot. We think it's a hidden gem. There is lots of space between campsites and lots of big big trees. Has a newly finished nature trail through woods. The one bad thing I can tell you is that sometimes during warmer months the river smells very bad. It is usually when they are not pulling much water out of the lake. There is a playground, tennis courts, basketball goal, pavilions, baseball diamond, and group camp area. This is a Corps of Engineers Park. Only 14 sites are electric. And only about half would be good for a bigger rig. - Standage3
