4 Parks near Cameron, Missouri
Mar 2006 - $18.00
A wind swept gravel knoll behind a motel and truck stop with the associated noise. Pieces of re-bar stick up from broken concrete-watch out. If a Wal-Mart is a 3 this is a 2 for even worse security. I won't give it a 1 because I'm sure there is someplace worse and the management is at least neutral, not nasty. - raven

There are various site types, tent, to large pull through. Some sites are gravel, some are asphalt. Sites are shaded with few having satellite reception. OTA TV is limited. The camp hosts are very friendly. The shower house is near new and quite clean. The few miles of road from the Interstate are narrow, hilly, and curved. - Hhtjr

Wallace State Park is a lovely, tranquil place, a really sweet discovery. There is a small lake with swimming. Two of the campgrounds have electric, mostly 30 amp, with 50amp available in two sites (by reservation); the basic sites seem more suitable for tents, but OK for smaller rigs. If you have never stayed here before & especially if you have a big rig, I would recommend calling the park before making a reservation online. Some of the sites are easy pull-thru & very level. Some are gravel, some paved. The back-ins tended to be very private & attractive (nestled in the trees), but also many were not level. One electric site had a pretty steep drop-off with a lot of overhanging trees that we would not have attempted. (Ok if you're small, but no way with a behemoth motorhome!) - RockyMountainMama

The nicest state park campground I have ever stayed in. Beautiful, fairly level, spacious sites, some with tree cover, others in the open. Good electric, but no water at site, and no sewer, though a very nice dump station was available. Even had good wifi at site.
Modern, clean bath house. Everything was well kept, nice hiking trails and a swimming lake. Nice new playground. Camp hosts were very friendly.
Being that it was just a few miles off the interstate, I used this as an overnight stop, but wish I could have stayed for more. If in the area, I will return. - Cyclonic

Off the beaten path in a beautiful country setting. This is a family park with fishing, hiking, and golf cart trails (bring your own). Good utilities and long sites. Owner on site. - The Griffins

This is a very nice, quiet park and very well maintained, owner is very friendly. There are 2 nice big ponds on the property, I assume they have fish in them since we saw people fishing, not sure if they allow swimming in them. The restrooms and office/store are very clean, there are laundry facilities but we didn't go in there. Gravel roads and pads are well maintained, most sites appear fairly level, however some are not, so you need plenty of leveling blocks. That being said everything else we have seen of this whole state is either up hill or down hill. No cable, but antenna will get a few stations, satellite will work at some sites but some have lots of trees so it might not work. ATT cell service is fair. Don't know for sure but I don't think they have wifi. We camped here in a 45' 5th wheel. If ever in this area we would stay here again. - Myrtle the Turtle

In additional to the nightly fee there was an $8.50 reservation fee since we booked on line!
This is a beautiful park, lots of large hardwood trees fill the park. We didn't even try to get Direct TV reception! But could get some TV over the antenna.
Only problem we had was with the configuration of our site. It was raised up from the normal forest floor in order to be somewhat level to the roadway. But that buildup was rather narrow for our 5th wheel. So when making reservation beware of that since there is somewhat of a description of the sites on the website. Once we got the rig centered on the site it made for tricky navigation from the truck to the steps of the RV. Don't let that warning keep you from this park, just fore warned is fore armed!
Dump site at entrance to the campground. No threaded tap for hooking up hose to use our Saniflush.
The park is very close to the Watkins Woolen Mill and Home. Beautiful state historic site. The campground is on the land of the former farm. Very interesting and a must see. Only $4.00 admission per person! - Rick & Karen

Beautiful campground. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. I had trouble backing into #83 at night so the host put me in a more accessible site. Very nice shaded sites with beautiful trees. Some road and train noise but not bad for being close to KC. Clean shower rooms with hot, hot water with no timer. Some things to keep in mind: 1) Site no. 80 -93 are challenging for longer units - all back in with a drop off along the road. The sites on the downhill side looked to be easier (see campground map). 2) Beware of the 10:00p gate closing. MSP will not give you the gate code over the phone; we found that out en-route and were pushing it to make in time. - Zabanya

This is a beautiful park with large sites. Many sites have electric, only a few have 50A. There is water available at spigots in the park but there is no water at sites. The roads are paved and wide. Most sites are gravel, but the 50A sites are paved. The gate house is often unattended but the hosts will either be at their well marked site or at the Check Office which is just past it. Campground gate is locked after 10pm but there is a gate code for getting in. We were able to get satellite at our site but it would be difficult from many others especially when the trees fully leaf out. The park even has has free public wifi. We were there during the week and there were virtually no other people in the park. The campground should be accessed from the park's southern entrance off of Highway 92. Access from the north is winding and there is a low overpass that could cause problems. - docj
