We enjoyed our 3 nights at Binder Lake Park, our second visit to this quiet, wooded park. Our site (16) was very private, so our close neighbors on either side were barely visible through the leaves. The host was helpful, loaning us an extra length of hose & a splitter (as the water is shared between two sites, and was about 80 feet from our site). You might bring your own though, as he may not have enough to go around. The park has a limited number of sites, so a reservation in the summer is recommended. Also, as you come in on Business 50 to turn onto Binder Lake Road to the park, there is a very low electrical wire across the road. At 12'8", we fit under just fine, but it did cause a bit of a concern when we first encountered it. - RockyMountainMama

Binder City Park is a small campground with 17 sites all within one loop. As you enter the campground the camp host site is on your left side. There is a steep short hill (one way) to climb before you see the first camp site. The interior road is on asphalt and all sites are on concrete. Most of the sites are fairly level. At the time of our stay, 2 of the sites were being used by long term residents.
All sites have a covered picnic area and fire ring. There is a bathhouse with 2 showers per gender. There was (2) washers costing $1.00 and (2) dryers costing $0.50 per load. All of the sites except the first 3 were under a canopy of trees. For the most part they were well trimmed.
All sites have 50/30/15 amp electrical service. The voltage was good - hovering around 120 volts. The electrical box is situated at the back of the site. The sewer is located behind the electrical box. None of the water spigots are located within or near a site. I needed 70 feet of hose to connect to my fresh water outlet. I used 25 feet of sewer hose to reach the sewer. Some sites need even more hoses.
The park does not have WiFi. Our Verizon cell phone was roaming instead of broadband. Verizon air card had good reception. There was some train noise but it was not bad.
Reservations are recommended during the summer months.
We would come back to this campground. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

This is a nice quiet city park, though it is actually located just west of urban Jefferson City. All roads and sites are fully paved. The campground host resides in the first site as you enter the park. The sites are all back-in, and are nicely angled for easy parking. Shopping is nearby within a mile, and the Capital building is a short drive from the park.
If you need satellite access, any of the sites on the north side of the park loop (your right hand side as you drive through the loop) will work nicely.
The park is really easy to get to via good roads, but you'll need to use something like Google maps before you get there. This will allow you to confirm the route to the park off Route 50 business before you end up passing the park. This park will certainly be our first choice if visiting this area again. - Johnson's

Great small campground!! They even have a cafe with excellent food & drink, with terrific conversations!! Very clean. Our camp site had a full view of the Osage River. The campground is directly located by river!! - Annu

Paid $23 plus $1.25 tax per night for a nice long, level 50 amp full hook-up pull thru site. The site was gravel, but the grass had grown over so it seemed like more of a grass site, but with a very solid base. So there would be no problem with a lot of rain. This campground is also a working marina. There were lots of small boats and outboard engines around the main building. That is probably the main complaint from the July 2010 review. However, this is not that bad of a campground and deserves a much better review. TV via batwing was very good with 10 very clear stations. Our Verizon cell did not have a lot of bars, but we had service and our broadband was actually very good at 4G. If your looking for a resort, look elsewhere. But, for a nice quiet place for a few nights this is a good place. Just east across the Osage River is a Sport's Bar attached to a bowling alley that has very good food and burgers. After crossing the river take two quick lefts onto the old road to get there. There is also another campground over there. - Bob and Inga

This RV Park is attached to a boat repair facility and within walking distance of a boat ramp access point for fishing the Missouri River. Fishermen in totally self contained RV's must be its main clientele. The sites are level grass and mostly shaded. There is a small playground, but it is located almost in the main driveway. The shower had plenty of hot water and the mud dauber nests had been cleaned off the walls. There are only 2 bathrooms for the whole park. We were able to move to a more open site in order to get satellite TV. The road noise made my husband leave the fan on all night, but I did not find it objectionable. The park is easy to find and close to Hwy 50, but about 10 miles from downtown Jefferson City. - WNC Traveler

We stayed here 3 days only because we couldn't find anything closer to Jefferson City. It is a joke for an RV park, more of a junk yard with a few permanents. They ran my credit card twice and still didn't get the amount right, I went down the next morning to tell the owner and he took my extra money with no more than a half-hearten thanks. If I am heading to Jefferson City again, it will be Wal-Mart for me. We will NOT stay here again. - cbor

This campground must be a work in progress. It is a little further off the highway than expected and down a winding lane that has not been graded recently. Full hookup sites are back in. Pull thru sites have "available" water, Our site had full facilities. Utilities worked fine. Showers were clean, individual bathrooms. Big rigs would find it challenging to negotiate and chose a site. I would not return here. - Yeager

We just stayed at this beautiful, wooded, campground. We stayed at campsite 11, but there are many good sites to choose from. The showers and bathrooms are clean and spacious. The hosts are great and we can't wait to come back for our next visit which we already have reserved. - ArtPainter

This was not our first choice for a campground in the Columbia area but the one where we usually stay was full so this was the next best we could find. The lack of Internet was very inconvenient. This is a very rustic campground. By that I mean lots of trees and natural landscaping. It has more of a woodsy feel. The sites were gravel but well maintained. We were able to use our satellite dish. The owners were very nice and were helpful in answering questions and giving information. The campground was quiet at night which is important to us. There were a few barking dogs but not for extended periods of time as we have experienced at other campgrounds. It is located a bit off the main road and there is a fairly steep gravel hill into the campground but we negotiated it with no trouble. If a resort-like atmosphere, pool, and Internet is important to you then this is not the campground for you. We would stay here again. - cgrubbs

This is primarily a mobile home park with no shower/bathroom facilities. They have 24 RV sites and we use them every time we are in the area. Gravel sites that are level. $100 per week. The hosts are pleasant and helpful!!! Good access to area attractions. - DesertRat

This definitely was not a family friendly atmosphere. It is a place to go and party, if that is what you're looking for. There is not easy access for full size motorhomes because of narrow roads and low trees. - Harlee79

This is a good place to drink and party, I wouldn't take kids. It's hard to park in most sites. Weekends have many tent campers very close and walking through your area, there's very little privacy. There's one very small restroom in the store with one pay shower available during store hours and a few really nasty portable potties. I won't stop there again. - David's path

Call in advance, the campground is pretty far out in the country and small. I'm not sure too many big rigs could be accommodated. Amenities are way down on the 1-10 scale but the location and atmosphere more than compensate. A great view of the historic Missouri River, live entertainment and friendly locals added to the ambiance. It truly feels that you've stepped way back in time. The Thai food concession added to the wonder. If your thing is bicycle riding, you're situated on 30 miles of improved RR bed - fantastic riding. Coopers Landings is out of the way but unique and we would return in a heart beat. - richb
