10 Parks near Hannibal, Missouri
Sep 2016 - $30.00
We stayed for an overnight while passing through. We were able to get a pull thru site with power and electric. Site was fairly level, staff was friendly. The park was quite and only had a few RVs. We had no neighbors so I am not sure what the spacing between was like. Hose bib is on the opposite side of site. All in all no real issues with this park at all. - Justice12t

This is an older park in a good location for sightseeing... and the park is a good dollar value but merely average to below average in facilities and upkeep. We were in a pull though that was level...but some of the others looked to be more of a challenge. Water and electric were fine and the site was gravel in the open surrounded by grass...and turf that I nearly turned my ankle on several times due to holes that were not visible through the grass. Bathrooms were clean, but old, but plenty of hot water. 1 mile from town but VERY hilly if you are thinking of walking or cycling. Tourist trolley runs though October and will pick you up at the office and costs $10 for the tour and you can get off in town and explore more and them hop back on. Be sure to CALL the trolley company as they don't run every trolley scheduled if they don't have passengers. In season...they run about 40 minutes apart.
No cable and wifi is slow in a nearly empty park. Phone signals for Verizon data are non existent though voice calls go through fine.
Big rigs will find the pull thoughs a bit short I think...you will need to unhitch.
We would stay again for a short visit. - Camaraderie

CG is in park where Mark Twain cave is located. It is very large. Nice and flat, easy to maneuver. Some shade some sun spots. Spots are somewhat level. There are some potholes in the roads that could be fixed but we didn't have trouble with our 34 ft coach and tow vehicle. Utilities fine. We were here in August, so not many people here. - slj

In a nutshell, stay away. If we could give this place a zero we would do so. The bathrooms are beyond filthy, mold appears to be growing on the shower stall benches, trash everywhere. The ground around our campsite was littered with cigarette butts. The buildings and all infrastructure look like they have had no maintenance in years. The "locals" or weekenders were very unfriendly; in fact scary.
It's very unfortunate as the place looks like it may have been decent at one point many years ago. We found the place in an older Good Sam book but the campground was no longer affiliated with Good Sam so there was no discount available.
If visiting the Hannibal area for the Mark Twain historical features find another campground for your stay. We booked two nights but left after staying only one night. - RalphB3

The lady checking us in was helpful, efficient and knowledgeable about the area.
The campground is old and dirty. Sites were not level, muddy and sewer connection broken.
Appears to be mostly full time residence that do not seem to take any pride in their site. Junk laying all around. Will not come back. - Stockmk

Worst campground ever! First of all, the campground is not marked, coming from Hannibal. We drove right past it. When we arrived, there is a window/ac unit boarded up with plywood. Not even new plywood, that looks like an accident or breakage recently happened, rotted on the bottom plywood. We arrived at 3pm the afternoon on a FRIDAY , and had to call a phone number listed on the door for help. When we finally arrived at our site and set up, the were so many dogs barking it sounded like we were at the humane society. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel, and had to park the truck on the gravel street, as there wasn't enough room to actually park at the site. We could not find the restaurant/lounge that was listed on the website. The was ice and firewood only at the "general store". The camper across from us, was a permanent site and the camper was finished off with plywood. Batting cages actually worked, but was really old. The kids tried to go to the store several times to get quarters, there wasn't anyone there. Pool is very small , kids didn't stay in it long, they said it smelled funny. My husband used the restroom once, said it smelled like urine and there was nothing in there to wash his hands with. We couldn't get out of there fast enough! - Hilgirl

Rate is without sewer ( not available other than pumpout ) and not using Air. ( $3.00 more ) This is a seasonal park with mostly local trailers set up for the summer. Train is very loud and this is not on the river as it looks on the web site. Place needs a lot of work. We would never stay here again. - imperial

Rate is based on a monthly rate. This is a nice family park with mostly seasonal sites. The sites are level gravel sites. Management is very friendly. The drawback is the train tracks that pass near the park. There are no sewer hookups, but the owner provides a tank emptying service. - John P

Interior roads were packed gravel and in good condition. Sites had level concrete pads with very good spacing and utilities placed at the rear. Sites had a beautiful concrete patio with new picnic table. Owners are very helpful and take you to your site. No recycling. Noise is non-existent. WiFi coverage could be weak but owner gave us a site that was in direct sight of the router so we got by OK. We had 2/5 bars on Verizon Cell. The CG is very close to city parks and the Mississippi River. This was an overnight stay for us. - FreeWheeler

We went to Quincy to buy a 1964 Corvair for my girl. We pulled the car trailer with the coach and this is the only RV park in the area. Weather was horrible or we would have stayed longer. Nice little park with a gracious owner. It was a little noisy in the morning with the road traffic but it didn't ruin our stay. Well maintained park and the owner Denise works hard at keeping it that way. We will be back. - roadkingdh

This is a nice park. The owner was very friendly. They had a huge windstorm that had come through and were still in the cleanup process. Lots of huge trees with broken limbs. The park was nice but we were parked next to the road and although it did not appear to be on a busy road, it was, and there was quite a bit of traffic in the morning which made it noisy. We were hoping the pool would be open, but it must've closed Labor Day. It was pretty warm and would've been nice to use. There was no shade at our site, but others did have plenty. We were only here one night. Would stop again for an overnight. - jacknpeg

WiFi did not work for me and I tried 2 different devices I have. I need WiFi and because they didn't preform I marked them down. - Dick Schmidt

As previously said, most folks in here are seasonal, but well kept. We stayed only a couple nights on our way through and didn't use the store, showers, etc. Seems nice, well managed and very friendly staff were helpful upon check-in. We'd stay here again without hesitation. - TPDBOB8687

Vast majority of sites appear to be seasonal/permanent. All back-in sites are on the blind side. Some sites are easier to back into than others. Cable worked well. WiFi was o.k. for email and Facebook. No fenced dog area. Concrete pad was long enough for my 6-pt level up, and my long bed truck still fit within the driveway. - TH travelers

I have no idea why this campground has never been reviewed. We stayed here for two nights. Its pretty standard COE except there are so many trees it makes maneuvering a little difficult. The roads are newly paved but a little narrow, especially for a big rig. There are a lot of equestrians here and the campground is near Mark Twain Lake. Very peaceful and quiet. We'd stay here again. - Soos

Rate reflect Golden Age card (50% off). Very pretty park on the Mark Twain Lake. Good staff presence, gate attendants friendly and helpful. Electric was steady, water 85psi, steady. Park was clean enough, however our firepit was full of ash and trash, we had to clean it out to use it. Some sites are full hook up, others are electric only. Most sites are level enough, however there are a few that have an incline. The trails were closed when we were here due to high water in the lake, but the boat launch was open. There is a marina on the park with a café and little store. Park has dumpsters in the camping loops, convenient, not a long way off. We did not use the bathhouse or restrooms. Sites are asphalt, however the patio area is rock. Its small, but not as easy to walk on as gravel. Sites have a large picnic table, a lantern pole and fire ring with grate.Nearest Walmart is about 35 miles away, but there is a local store with bread/milk, etc. We would stay here again when in the area. - Fixn2gocamp

Very nice COE park on the Mark Twain Lake. The camping loops are about a mile or more from the gate. Gate attendants friendly and helpful. Park was clean. The roads were paved and the long pads were asphalt and a little narrow, but there is a lot of space between sites and each has a fire ring, picnic table, and lantern post. Most sites are back-in. Lots of mature trees. No sites are on or near the lake, so no view to speak of. We had a problem with our cell and internet service-NONE-even though there are cell towers in vicinity. However we discovered that area of MO is in a "Dead Zone" according to the helpful people at the Walmart in Hannibal. - bob and phyl

This is a beautiful area on the Mark Twain lake and, specifically, the US Corps of Engineers Recreation Area --- located about 30 minutes southwest of Hannibal, MO. There were really nice features about camping here, e.g the roads were paved and the pads were paved but, unfortunately, very narrow, which made it difficult to maneuver. Our site, # 129 was surrounded by trees making it scenic but impossible to open both our slideout and our awning. Not all the sites had that level of closeness. And not all sites are level, so pick with care. The toilet and shower house were separate and not very close together. These building and some of the other buildings in the area were in need of some paint and/or repair, but for that price, I look at it as a small issue. There are not many extras available there, but there is a marina onsite where one can rent boats, eat, fish, etc. - stocky

Easy to get in and out of. Long concrete back-in sites with full hookups. Widely spaced. We would stay here again. - ATCbelle

Nice state park with easy access off of highway 61. There are two sections for RVs. One with water and electric only (largest campground) and one with 8 sites with full hookups. Long gravel pads and huge concrete patios. Tons of room between sites. You can reserve through the MO state park system, and there are no state park fees. - Ron and Terri

Lots of open spots for us that night. We had the entire park practically by ourselves on a Monday night. We stayed here instead of the Mark Twain Cave Camping, Injun Joe camping or other sites in Monroe City or Hannibal - it is less expensive and had available spots. Helpful staff. Downside: old shower and bathroom facilities. There was barf in one of the men's shower stalls and the other didn't latch closed. Gross. Thank goodness we have a small shower in the RV the boys used. Women's shower and restrooms were old but usable. Tree frogs on the shower wall! Awesome / kinda gross. Park was wet from a heavy rain that morning and the woods were still flooded - it is 1/4 mi from the Mississippi River. That meant tons of mosquitoes. It was decent for a quick overnight stay, but we won't use it again. - BeeDee

The price reflects a 50% Senior Pass discount on a full-hookup site, a ridiculously low amount to pay for a beautiful full-hookup site! This is another nice Corp of Engineer park. The only thing missing were views of the reservoir; only a few sites had distant views of the lake through the vegetation. Otherwise, you couldn't ask for anything nicer. The campground is a bit far from the major throughways to be a convenient overnight stop, but it is easy to find and the roads to the park are all good, paved roads. The campground is easy to navigate. There are two campground areas, the West Campground, that you come to first, and the East Campground. There is an entrance gate, but there was no attendant on duty when we arrived, so we found a non-reservable site, set up, and paid later. The West Campground sites (1 - 95) are all non-reservable, wonderful for those of us that like to travel more free-form. The East Campground (sites 96-175) is all reservable. Some sites are electric only, some also have water, and some are full hook-up sites. All have 50 amp service. Although there are water spigots located throughout the campground, if you have a dry camping site, the best place for filling a tank is at the dump station. They are all very well spaced; some have vegetation separating the sites. Our site was very level, but some are unlevel. We had weak Verizon signal at our site, but with a booster, could get voice and fast data. The signal varied considerably throughout the campgrounds. The gate attendant was very nice and extremely helpful. We would definitely come back and spend a week or so here. For $11 for full-hookup, it can't be beat. - TheJim

Rate reflects senior discount. Very pretty park, remote with lots of trees and grassy areas. Large campground, 2 different areas, east and west, with 2 loops in each one. Camp sites are generously spaced and allow for privacy. Some sites are terraced with step downs to patio area. Table, fire ring and lantern pole in most. Electric was steady at 124 per leg, water pressure was 70psi. Sites vary as to whether there is electric only, or full hook up. There are some community spigots placed around. Did not use the bathhouses here, but saw cleaning crew there each day and staff checking them throughout the day. Fairly level for walking and biking. Due to high water in the lake, the beach and walking trails were closed during our visit. Plenty of deer wandering around the campground and bird watching is good. Bring your supplies, a good 15 mile drive to nearest grocery store, nearest WM is in Hannibal. There is a small marina here with a little store and snack bar. Staff on the park was visible and friendly. Gate house hours are erratic, but saw camp hosts putting out reserved tags occasionally. Park stayed quiet even over a busy weekend. Drive to the Dam Visitors Center, worth the trip, nice displays and great views of the lake and spillway. Nice memorial to Vietnam Veterans. We would stay here again. - Fixn2gocamp

The rate reflects our senior discount. Very pretty campground that is better suited to smaller rigs. We had to select from only three available sites for our 35' rig and we could only fit in one due to our length and three slides. The site, #5, was very sloped and we had to unhook our truck for just overnight to get our rig even close to level. We saw very few level sites in the entire campground. It's a very popular place and was almost full even though it was well after Labor Day. Reservations would probably be very helpful. The campground is located about 14 miles off the main highway but as is typical of most COE campgrounds it was worth the drive. - PegL

This is a small lot of 8 spaces located about a city block from the casino. They are full hook ups. The spaces are concrete, most are broken up a bit, but they are quite level. It is on the bypass highway, across from some railroad tracks. However, there is a nice view of the Mississippi river, you can watch barges moving up and down. Water pressure was good, electric steady. This park is great for a night or two to play at the casino, not a destination in itself however. If you join their players club and play before you park, you can get comp'd, however we decided to just pay the $25. The electric and water boxes at the sites are kept locked, you must leave a $20 deposit for the key which is returned when you turn in the key. The customer service at this casino was excellent! Staff was friendly on all levels. The restaurant had good food, served well and is priced easy on the wallet. Play was generous enough and they have a lot of newer machines to chose from. We would stay here again when visiting the casino. - Fixn2gocamp
