Stayed here 2 nights over Labor Day, park was about half full. A quiet place and site 16 is very shaded, there are some sunny sites on top of the hill. Utilities worked well and OTA tv as well as 2 bars of Verizon 4G. Only 4 miles to grocery, yet feels like you are out in the country. Camphosts were friendly. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Binder Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great little park with nice wide and level concrete pads. Clean bathhouse and cheap laundry. Camphost was very nice and helpful, and provided a lot of good information about what to see and do in Jefferson City. $ 18 pr night for full hook up is cheap! Only 7 miles from state capitol and 3 miles from major shopping and restaurants. We camped at Binder Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Binder Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Binder Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Binder Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice city park, a little outside the city. It was very quiet, very wooded and very private. The sites are paved and easy to get into. Probably the only downside would be sharing the water with your neighbor. Ours was ok, but others had to run 2 hoses to get to the hydrant. Most sites would be hard to get satellite reception due to the trees, but it was very nice to have the shade. We stayed here 2 nights and would definitely return. We camped in a 32' Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice, small city park. Full hookups. You connect to the water with an elbow used with your neighbor. This is not a problem but requires a long water hose. The site a long and paved. Every site has a covered picnic table, grill & fire pit. Very quiet. We would stay here again. We camped at Binder Park in a Motorhome.

Best campground for the money. As others have noted, bring extra hose for water hookup. Our only disappointment was that we thought we'd called ahead for reservations; but no sites were reserved for us. Fortunately, we came on a Monday, so had no trouble finding a site. Sites were paved a level. Great overnight stop. We camped at Binder Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful little park. Had no problems getting our 38' RV into a site. We did unhook our towed Jeep when we got into the park. Even with our 3 slides our site was large enough. We do always check a site to make sure there is enough room and no branches are in the way. Our site 6 was level. The water hookup was further away and we had to use a 25' hose. Very tidy park, clean, bath house was heated, abd there is a laundry and washers are $1.00, dryers 50 cents. This place is nicer than many at twice the price. Quiet, peaceful, trees, and great to have full hookups. We camped at Binder Park in a Motorhome.

Small campground with a limited number of sites. Some of the sites were a bit tight, and you need to watch branches from overhead trees. Be sure to have a Y-valve for your water as two sites share one spigot. However water pressure was not a problem. Campground was clean and pleasantly wooded. We would stay there again. We camped at Binder Park in a Motorhome.

If you like "woodsy" campgrounds and have a smaller RV you will like this small park. There were as many tents as RVs at the park. Lots & lots of trees on the sites and by the road. Being full timers with a tall 37' 5W, this park is too tight and treed for us. The first site we tried (#10) was a blind back-in uphill on a curve with trees beside it. We moved to #7. OK but you need to be very aware of overhead trees and trees beside the road and your site. Our water hook-up was shared with another site so we had to use an extension hose to reach. 50a power was OK. There were far too many trees for our rooftop dish to work. Our site dropped 6" if you stepped off the narrow blacktop so be careful. The price was right but the park is just not for us. We camped at Binder Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was a pleasant surprise. We camped here in a 45ft. motorhome and found some sites to be very accommodating. Some sites are very shaded and in need of being trimmed. The host was very helpful and pleasant. Reservations should be made due to the limited sites. Reservations can be made through the campground host(recommended) or the park office. Would stay here again. FYI, GPS directions were a little confusing. We camped at Binder Park in a Motorhome.

Small, clean park. Helpful host. The water hydrants are very far away and are shared. Sites are paved but not level. Well shaded. Convenient location away from noise. Would definitely go back there. We camped at Binder Park in a Motorhome.

This is a small city owned campground. It is very quiet and secluded. The sites are level, paved and each has a covered table, grill and fire pit. No cable or Wi-Fi and only one or two sites have a clear view for satellite reception. It is only a few minutes back into civilization for shopping or entertainment in Jefferson City. We would stay here again. We camped at Binder Park in a Travel Trailer.

Water bibs are shared between two sites so bring a lot of hose and a "y" connector. Nice covered picnic table setup and shady sites. Park itself is busy and noisy with group happenings, but the campground is fairly quiet. Good value for the money. We camped at Binder Park in a Travel Trailer.
