This is an excellent Corps of Engineers campground on Truman Lake. There is a nice beach area for those who like to swim. Boat launching is also nearby. Campground host was friendly and helpful. The park ranger was awesome. I was walking my dog when another dog, which wasn't leashed, started pestering us. His owners were outside, but failed to come and get him. The ranger was on the next loop over, saw that I was having problems getting the dog to go back to its site and came over right away to help me out. By this time, the dog owners finally came and got their dog, but it was the ranger who apologized for the problem, not the owners of the unleashed dog. Sites were large and well-spaced. Grass needed to be cut, but it wasn't so terribly long that it was a problem. Will definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Bucksaw Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Check in was great. The camp host's at the gate were most helpful in getting us checked in and situated. We used to camp a lot at Long Shoal, but we now have a bigger coach, hence staying at Bucksaw. Was not aware there were a few full hookups available here, so would definitely try to get one of them the next time there. Had great location at site 39. Great satellite reception. Power and water pressure good. Showers close and very clean for COE campground. We camped at Bucksaw Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Gravel pads but well paved roads, well maintained. Quiet and peaceful. We were here early week so very few people here which helped as we booked "Standard Electric" which did not include water. Luckily we were able to transfer to a sight with water and sewer! Would definitely stay here again! We camped at Bucksaw Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

Another example of a nice COE campground. Only a small section had full hookups, but there were plenty of sites with water and electric. It was a quiet, pleasant 4 night stay. We had a partially shaded site and plenty of areas for walking. We watched a doe and her young twins grazing in the field behind our site. Dumpsters available only at the entrance/exit was inconvenient. We camped at Bucksaw Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Bucksaw is a Corps of Engineers Park on Truman Lake. It is fairly remote but there is a marina/boat launch and a restaurant nearby. The sites are nicely spaced and most have trees for shade. The sites are gravel with a firepit and picnic table. After walking around the park, most of the sites look to be fairly level. There is no Wi-fi and cell service was almost non-existent. Bathrooms are abundant and the bath houses appeared to be very large. Deer are everywhere as are Canadian Geese. Plenty of places to walk the dog. We camped at Bucksaw Campground COE in a Motorhome.
