This campground is obviously old and has seen much better days. The majority of sites are permanent residents. They also store RVs and from the looks of them most have not seen an owner in years. Very dilapidated surroundings. More of a storage for old cars, heavy construction equipment, and rundown RVs. A few of the residents kept their sites neat and clean; however, they were in the minority. It was about a 200 yard walk down a very steep hill to get to the lake?. We were extremely disappointed. Definitely not the campground represented on their website...in fact, it was 180* opposite. - Bindi1

This is a very spacious park and the sites are large, wooded and level. It is now part of the KOA franchise. It has lake access and covered boat slips for rent. The boat docks were in good condition. They also sell gas for boats. Fishing was just OK in July, but others have said that fishing is excellent in the spring. If you do bring a boat, be aware that there is a very steep road down from the campground to the water. We rented a car so that we didn't have to walk several times a day. The bath house was clean as was the pool. There is a nice playground for kids and some nice tent sites. The only downfall is that it is pretty far by boat or water to many of the area's activities. - FUNCAMPIN

The long term residents have the level sites. Some are pretty far from level, front to back as well as side to side. Makes leveling a larger rig pretty difficult. We could not get our 40' 5th wheel level in the first site and had to move to another site that was still not quiet level.
Since the sites are gravel, it would not be hard for the owner to scrape of a spot that would allow easy leveling.
Most sites do not allow for satellite signals. The cable is linited and the lower channels have interference.
All in all not a bad park.
We were here two weeks and the monthly rate was the cheapest. - TXiceman1

This is a decent park, a bit rustic, with some great & not so great aspects. First, there is enough of a distance away from the hubbub of Osage Beach (about 10 miles) to be quiet, but still close enough to enjoy the activities there. We were at the back of the park (site 63) so road noise from 54 was not a factor. Our site was way out of level, but the park management provided leveling blocks. Our pull-thru had a pleasant view of the surrounding forest, but unfortunately our neighbors were too close (about 20' on one side, 30' on the other). The picnic tables sit right on your neighbor's sewer hookup. Other sites in the park did not seem so close. There may be tight u-turns getting into/out of the park, depending on your direction. - RockyMountainMama

The rate reflects the monthly rate which was a GREAT Deal. This park is in Linn Creek which is just south of Osage Beach but a little ways from Lake Ozark (the town). It's very close to plenty of things to do. The on site management was very friendly. The park is a mix of weekenders and month to month units. All of the sites are well kept and its not like you feel like you're unwelcome as can be the case with some parks that have monthly tenants. They have a pool but the real draw is the lake which is super close. There's a state park nearby with boat launch and nice swimming area, Wal-Mart is close too. Overall - a nice place. Only gripe is that the site was only sort of level. I used ten leveling bricks and almost got it straight.
I'll stay there again, soon. - A. Hotaling

One lady runs the park. When you call you will leave her a message. It will take several hours for her to return your call, so make your plans EARLY.
Park roads are gravel/caliche. There are 3 pull thru's and the balance are back in. Mostly trailers at this park, a few small motorhomes. We parked in 43' Diesel and had a difficult time getting in, but finally managed. It rained while we're here and there are several mud puddles around that may create a problem when we leave. It will certainly muddy up the RV which I try to keep clean. Good elevation to the park so other than the mud puddles, the rain went on down to the lake.
Park is close to Captain Ron's' a local hangout/bar, located at MM 34.5 if you're familiar with Lake of the Ozarks. Very nice grocery store (Wood's) just a few miles on up Highway 5. Conveniently located to other entertainment and dining. - TheBigL

We camped here during the week as weekends are typically very booked.
This is an older state park with paved roads and sites HOWEVER it is very tight in some areas for a crew cab truck and 33 ft. fifth wheel! We found a half dozen places where it was impossible to pass without both the truck and trailer being off the road.
Several nice hiking trails will provide a variety of levels for everyone.
The lake is within walking distance of all sites and adjacent to many in the #4 area. - bipeflier

This is a great state park--perfect for families. Lots of play space, good playground, a swimming beach, trails, etc. We have stayed here for many 3-5 day get-togethers with family. Always have plenty of room for extended family get-togethers. Usually stay near the water and fish right from our site. Lots of shade--so a good place to be on hot Missouri summer days. The only thing that would make it better would be to have water and sewer at each site. - MissouriBird

Lake of the Ozarks State Park is a large park with many campsites. There are a lot of beautiful sites right on the lake, however you need to make reservations early. Our site was shady and nice for just the two of us, but one side of the camper was very close to the neighboring site. This was the side away from our table and fire pit so it was not an issue when we were outside, however after bedtime it felt like we were right in the middle of their campsite since we were so close. For anyone wanting more primitive sites there are many large camp sites. Our restrooms and showers were clean and well kept, but one of the older facilities in the park. Sometimes we would use the newer facilities, but it was necessary to drive to there. This park has a couple of yurts in the camping area. Further away there are cabins. These take about an extra 10 to 15 minutes to get to. There is a camp store at this park where you can purchase some very basic supplies, fountain soda and ice cream but there hours are limited. Many trails are available. This year there were many deer to see. Be careful driving the curvy road into the park. Often we saw deer right on the edge of the road. The staff at this park were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of rangers and Missouri staff were around as well as many campground hosts. - skeeter417

Upon arrival, one thing I noticed right off was the parking was used for checking in, for the shower house and for the pool. Made for a bit of a log jam. Check in was smooth and efficient. The park was moderately full, mainly with a number of Class A Pushers. Our back in site was with a large grass area behind us where the firepit was located. This Park was a former KOA and like the other KOA we stayed at, the sewer hookup was toward the front of the site, so make sure you bring a long sewer hose. The bath house was sparkling clean, as was the pool. The park felt as though you were out of town, yet we were 3 minutes from Walgreens, HyVee, and McDonalds. Location cannot be beat. Good experience with this park. We will be back!!! - Prairie Bayou

This is a decent Park for being older. Streets and sites are all gravel. Small patio and picnic table (aged) at each location. Staff are helpful and ready for humor. If you have a stationary satellite dish on your rig, you should request sites in the middle pull-thru row, #43 to #54. Sites #61 to #73 are a little longer but satellite access is questionable. Wi-Fi (Tengo) worked fine but our stay was early season with only about a dozen campers visiting. - kurtk

We stayed here from M-Th in pull-thru number 67. The spacing is a little closer than we like but our site had mature tree on each side. The park has some long term visitors(for the lake season I assume) but it was a very clean park and well maintained. They have a few aminities like a pool and shuffleboard. They have a few supplies, but if you forgot or need anything there's a Target and Lowe's across the street. The park is close to all the attractions and restaurants and its easy on and off the highway. Our stay was memorable and pleasant. - 2G's

Mostly long pull-throughs with a few back-ins. Sites require a little leveling. Hooks-ups are new within the last two years. Shady sites with no trees blocking sites or access roads. Nice club house and laundry. Great couple own/operate this quiet park. Close to restaurants, gas stations, propane, banks and many other necessities. Enjoyed our stay. Sure to return. - Trikki Rikki

We have stayed here for a month the past couple years. This year the owners are the ones running the campground and they are a rip off. The monthly rate is $375 plus electric which our electric was $105 for two weeks. We paid for a month but only stayed 2 weeks due to the condition of the campground and the fact that when it rains it turns into a mudpit. We bought a brand new camper while we were there and had mud stains everywhere just from walking in our camper. Grass was knee high and service was unfriendly. Please go somewhere else if you care about service or your camper. Not to mention if it rains a lot like earlier this year they have to evacuate you with no refund due to the river flooding. - rgmowing

We had a pull through site. Easy enough to get our big rig in and out. All gravel roads. Nothing special about campground for us. We were visiting family and just needed a place to park and hook up. No issue with price, it's slow season. Won't be long before they need to trim trees and branches for big rig sites. Spaces were close together. - OnTheRoadLife

Older park but very close to the highway making very easy off/on access to get out & see the sights around Lake of the Ozarks. Sites are fairly level gravel with some pull thru. Swimming pool on site. Fishing pond and access to Osage River on site. Staff is very friendly & helpful. Propane refill available on site. We forgot to ask for Good Sam discount. 4th of July weekend and the park was full one night but still very well behaved kids & adults. Our only complaint would be with the wi-fi. They had a good signal but due to the large number of people it was hard to get a connection and if you did--it was very slow. Cable television is analog Dish Network signal which faded in & out at times mostly due to rain. Batwing antenna only picked up one local (PBS) channel due to the low area and surrounding hills. We will check out other area parks on our next trip but this one was worth a return and the easy in/out access is a definite bonus for a riverfront park. - Bob-n-Beverly

The road to the campground is rough in places. The office staff are friendly and helpful but, the only supplies available is ice. Entire area is gravel. Several fulltimers and year round campers as evidenced by the look of the unwashed trailers. Overall not to bad. We will be back. - jmd

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
