We stayed in loop 2 site 219 which has full hookups. We stayed from June 28 - July 1. The concrete pads are fairly level, the hookups are in the concrete pad. The spacing on the sites range from nearby to spacious. The campground has basic, electric, equestrian, and FHU sites available. There are numerous trails including a connection to the Ozark Trail. This area is very remote, the campground store has everything you need if you forget something including the only WIFI hotspot in the campground. This campground is a cell phone dead area "NO SERVICE". You can get cell phone service at the Park Visitor Center which is a mile away. - 2G's

We arrived on a Friday for a 4-night stay in loop 3. The check-in process was easy and the staff was very nice and provided us with a campground map. Our first stop was at the fresh water fill, which was very slow. For some reason, they have a water pressure regulator on the potable water faucet which made a 90 gallon fill last about 25 minutes. Loop 3 is a premium electric site and the sites are well spaced and pretty level with a concrete pad. We had an ant problem at the site and I wished I had bought some insect spray as we kept finding them in our TT and climbing up the stabilizer legs. I used the shower and toilet in our trailer but my wife used the loop's flushing toilets and shower. She reported they were clean but the showers do not have vent fans and were very damp and humid. The campground store has a fair amount of items but a bit costly. The staff at the store and the park ranger I talked to on a few occasions was very friendly and offered us suggestions on places to swim since the Shut In's river was closed due to high water. One annoyance I had was with some of the grounds crew. They used gas powered leaf blowers to clean off the porch area at the store while my wife and I sat at the outdoor tables...very loud and annoying. The laundry room had 4 working washers and 4 dryers and was fairly clean. There was no Sprint or AT&T cell service in the CG and the store Wi-Fi is a bit slow. - Iraqvet05

The only downside to this campground is the route you have to drive to get there! Narrow, winding, curvy, hilly, no shoulders on many of the roads and that's just the roads to get to the state park! Once inside the campground, the roads are adequate and nicely laid out with ample room between sites and room to get backed into back-in sites. There are several loops with a variety of services from which to select.
You are very cut off from the outside world in this park! There's no internet, phone or TV to be had anywhere in the campground. Even at the store where we were told you could get service, we didn't find anything on either Verizon or AT&T. We didn't really find this to be a huge problem other than us personally adjusting and changing habits for a few days.
All the staff we talked to were very friendly and helpful. The surrounding scenery and the river are amazing! Well worth the visit. - PegL
