Arrived on a Sunday, office was closed however there was a notice clipped to the office that let us know which site was reserved for us. When we arrived at that site, it was already occupied. We parked in the next site. The smaller pull-thru sites are extremely close to each other. Hookups worked well. Very good WIFI. Management arrived on Monday. Little store had a nice variety of items. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great value in central Missouri with a first class office staff. Plenty of room to navigate the park and each site was spacious. We had heavy rain while visiting the area and only a few sites had standing water. Plenty of public grassy areas for dogs, nice laundry, camp store and indoor and outdoor meeting areas. The park was celebrating Halloween with some awesome decorations. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good place for an overnight. This was a backin site, with a tail to tail arrangement. As there was no one behind us we could drive-through as we were advised by manager. This was a nice clean, well managed park. It is a little bit out of town, but that makes for a quiet stay. We would stay here again. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very clean well managed park with good utility hook ups. No cable but local channels very good. Sites are very narrow and the quality of your stay depends on your neighbors. We have used this park three times and this was the only time we had noisy kids to contend with. One neighbor grilled with charcoal and the smoke invaded our camper...again...very narrow sites. Staff is very good and helpful. Area very secure and safe, no houses in sight of the park. Paved interior roads and trees well trimmed to allow access to sites. we will stay there again because it has reasonable access to Interstate 70. Big Bass Pro shop right before you get to the park. Good shopping for the out of doors minded folks. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice RV park, pads are narrow, our site was on the far end so WiFi was not very good. Staff very friendly. Fairly level site. Road noise from nearby hwy. Trees provided shade without being in the way. Would stay again. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are not level and very narrow. Permanent residents leave pickups crowding the roads making for a tight situation when you leave. They said the site was level but it sloped. WiFi kept dropping connections so didn't get all my news read. This is the only habitable park in the area. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Arrived after hours, with a reservation. We were greeted by an employee who quickly showed us to our site. Nice long site, a little narrow. Hook ups were well situated. All sites in our section had a concrete pad, with table and a chiminea. There was a little noise from highway, and was only a few miles off I-70. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park was convenient to US-63 and minutes from Columbia. $31 nightly rate is based on weekly rate of $215. The staff was friendly and made some good recommendations for things to see and do in the area. The park has one row of more long-term residents, but were neat in appearance. The park is nice looking and well maintained. Most sites have some shade. The laundry was nice and clean with 6 washers and 6 dryers. I was greeted with coffee and doughnuts on Wednesday morning, and chatted with some of the very friendly regulars. Wifi was spotty most times I used it. Verizon reception was good. The biggest downside was the length and width of the space I was assigned. Very close to neighbors with awnings almost touching, and not long enough to park the truck in front of the 5th wheel when unhitched (had to back in, squeezing between my hitch and a tree). The spaces were not all that level, most motor homes in the row had front wheels off the ground. I would stay again when travelling through the area. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Capitol Building and Old Missouri State Penitentiary tours in Jefferson City were very interesting (30 minute drive). Budweiser Clydesdale breeding facility (Warm Springs Ranch) 30 minutes west of Columbia was also worth it.

Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to leave us this review. We appreciate your stay and your feedback. We are so happy to hear that you found our park well maintained and friendly as well as convenient to Highway 63 and Columbia. We are happy that you were able enjoy our Free Wednesday Morning Doughnuts during your stay! We apologize for the spotty wifi, we've been scrambling to install a new system after the wifi company we used to install and monitor our park system suddenly and unexpectedly closed up shop leaving us without a wifi system. We were able to install a new system quickly, but we are still trying to work out the kinks in the network.

The back row of our park is for monthly term residents, most of who are staying for only a couple months during work contracts at the local hospital and while building in the area. Site releveling is planned for this fall after busy season. Thank you again for your feedback! We hope to see you again soon!

The campground is easy to find. The staff seemed distracted. It's easy to navigate a big rig on the roads. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. The campground makes an attractive appearance. There was no traffic noise. The utilities are well placed and worked well. The wifi was slow. There is no cable and we received only a few OTA channels. We would stay overnight again. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate your feedback. We are glad that you were able to easily find our campground and we are delighted that you found our campground appearance attractive and quiet. We apologize for the slow wifi service. The company who installed our wifi upgrade in 2016 suddenly and quietly went out of business in July and did not let us know and in the mean time our network went down. We've been scrambling to get a new system in place and while we got wifi back up and running for our guest within 24 hours with a new system, its a learning curve which we are continuing to work on. We are currently waiting for additional tech support to work our the additional kinks in the system and I apologize that you experience a sluggish wifi during your stay. We appreciate your feedback and we look forward to your return visit!

Cottonwoods RV Park, manager at Cottonwoods RV Park responded to this review

Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to leave us this review. We are grateful for your stay and your feedback! We are delighted that you found our sites to be easy pull through sites. We agree that sites are pretty cozy together (that's the one thing that we wish could easily change about the park when we bought it 3 years ago.) RVs were a little smaller when the park was built 24 years ago making it one of our challenges, but we hope if we get the change to expand and purchase some additional land that we can put in some larger and more spacious spots.

We are also delighted that you guys were able to enjoy the BBQ when you arrived and that you found our staff friendly and helpful. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future!

Stayed here twice this summer. Clean park, nice office people. Hook ups worked well and they are near rear of trailer. New laundry machines. Camp store with a little of everything. Next to college ball fields. Park is easy to find from Highway I-70. Reservations recommended, it gets full in spring and summer. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean park, with a well stocked store. Most sites are extremely close together, with a row in the back of what looks to be regular customers in higher end trailers. We like to set up a tent with our 21 foot Travato Class B but that could not be done without purchasing a site in the tent area, some ways away. Since we were not able to do this, it was not ideal. Nice staff, and prompt maintenance when repairs needed attention. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cottonwoods RV Park, manager at Cottonwoods RV Park responded to this review

Thank you so much for staying with us! We are delighted to hear that you found our park clean with a well-stocked store. We agree that our sites can be somewhat close together, when the park was built 23 years ago RVs were a bit smaller so we are working on ideas for reconfiguration to accommodate the growing size of RVs. Our park rules do separate RVs and tent sites, we apologize for the inconvenience of this during your stay. We do offer an RV Site next to the tent site when it is available in Site #24. If you stay with us again in the future (and we hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back again soon), please let the Front Desk Staff know that you would like site #24 if available so that you are able to put up a tent next to your RV. We truly appreciate your feedback and your stay and we hope to welcome you back again soon. We wish you safe and happy travels!

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to leave feedback on your stay. We appreciate your stay and your review. Our park was built 24 years ago and when we purchased the park 3 years ago, we found that we agree that the sites are a little bit closer together than we would like them to really be, but to make up for it, we put extra care into the guest experience with our friendly customer service, site navigation assistance, and amenities. We hope you were able to enjoy our amenities and social activities while you were here. We love the opportunity to meet the wonderful folks who stay in our park and we appreciate having a chance to hear their feedback and the wonderful tales from their travels. If you missed any of these things during your stay, we hope you're able to experience them on your next trip through. We wish you safe and happy travels!
