We found decent utilities, but narrow gravel sites. Also our site was somewhat level.The office staff was very courteous at check in. There was some highway noise but not enough to disturb our sleep. There isn't shopping near and again didn't bother us. Access roads are asphalt and wasn't too bad for our TT. A decent place to stay and would return. Be aware, no cable and OTA is not very use full. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I've reviewed this park before. We stay here yearly to visit grandkids. I've never been as impressed with it as I am today. The new owners have taken it from an acceptable place that had some maintenance problems to a showplace. Pool is very good, playground is excellent, electricity during a very hot A/C kind of stay, was flawless and the newly opened

Rec room is a good addition. I'm pleasantly recommending this park to all. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

About 3 miles off of I-70 but MO63 was pretty busy. Narrow roads getting to our site and had to watch trees very carefully turning into site. Electricity was marginal and we could not run 2nd AC without voltage dropping under 110V. Water pressure was also marginal at 35 psi and wifi was impossible to use even though it said I was connected. Sites were very narrow - barely had enough room to put out slides and awning. thankfully, we only stayed here 1 night and will not return. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is a far distance from the major highway so I would not recommend it as an overnight stay. It's not close to stores if you wish to pick up supplies. There is highway noise. We pulled in late in the afternoon, was disappointed that the activity center closed at 6:00 pm. Staff was friendly and campground was clean. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

In the past years I have stayed there many time, but this will be the last time. Spaces are extremely tight and our awning out was on the next sites patio. Park looks more lake a long term park and if you stay nightly you pay with bad sites. Could not pull out the awning since it overlapped the road......................

Pros: Nice landscaping and large area for dog to run free, although must be well trained dog as it is not fenced. Cons: Overpriced and they nickel and dime you to death. $2 to use cc, $1 for parking extra car. However, we are a 5th wheel with truck plus small car. Were charged $1 for extra car and told we had to park in lot and not on site even though there was more than enough room as these are double back/back sites that they use as one. MHs all around us allowed to park car on site. We stayed hooked for the night so how were we any different? MH next to us had 2 cars on site all night. Sites very close together. Just not worth the price. We will skip this place next time we are in the area. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is located a short distance from Columbia and was far enough from freeways to be quiet at night. The roads are a little narrow, but fine to make the turn with a 40ft fifth wheel into our pull thru space. Utilities were all good and open enough sky for dish. There are many activities available, pool, etc. Internet was pretty slow. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park, grass & flowers in summer but sites are really close. We expected to stay 1 month & was required to pay in advance. We unexpectedly had to leave after 2 weeks--but owners would not give us a refund!! Kept full 4 week payments-we asked to give us weekly rate but they refused and instead gave us a piece of paper saying we have 2 weeks free camping which we will never use. Very disappointed in service. They did say no refund was in agreement but we did not see it. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park adjacent to fairgrounds and easy on off from 63. Some very long pull thrus and then the rest of the sites are pull thru but shorter. Nice grass in between, but not as much space between sites as I like. We had an empty site in front of is so it was OK. No campfires allowed. Our price was for 50 amp which was extra $. Trees are nice for shade - but you need to be careful when turning in/out of site. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We hiked part of the nearby Katy trail and also appreciated a great foodie grocery store...Lucky's Market. If your hungry you can get a pizza slice & a pint for $5 and sit on their nice covered patio. They have a liquor store adjacent with a great beer / wine selection and we bought some awesome fresh trout for dinner.

The above nightly rate reflects the prorated weekly rate.

This RV park is spotless, well kept with clean bathrooms. There are large garbage pails throughout the campground. Most sites have a mature tree for some shade (depending on the time of day) with a concrete pad and picnic table. There are 4 rows of sites, the back row, back-ins, seem to be mostly long term. The other 3 rows are all pull-thru. The middle two rows are for mid-range trailers/motor homes while the front pull through row is extra long for large trailers/motor homes. What others have written, regarding the sites being close together are true, though it would not be a deal breaker for us. If the sites were another 4 feet wider I would give this campground solid 10's. We have been in this campground for two weeks now, staying in Columbia surrounding our grandchild's birth. The campground is quiet and everyone seems friendly and respectful of one another. The manager and his staff are very nice and helpful. My husband and I have noticed them riding (on golf cart) around the campground multiple times per day.

The next time we come out here to Columbia, we would not hesitate staying here again.

BTW....this place is booked solid if you are staying here during an event, ie...Mizzou football game or event at the park, next door. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for 2 nights to visit friends in the area. Nice easy pull through sites up front with patios, tables and some shade. Office staff helpful and pleasant. Sites are level and park is clean. Easy access to nearby restaurants and shopping. We stayed here in a motorhome and would definitely stay again if in the area. Would suggest making a reservation as park fills up! We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.
