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.
Tips for other Campers:
Fisherman's paradise. Close to Marina and restaurant.

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.
