5 RV Parks near Mindenmines, Missouri
Apr 2013 - $13.00
This State Park is remote. It had 4 camp sites 2 of which were in the making. There was nothing there except shade, a small stream and lots of hiking trails, a nature lover's delight, quiet and peaceful. Toilets were pit toilets a quarter mile walk away to the parking area at the trail head. If you have a motor home 24 feet or smaller you will be okay. Maybe a small trailer would also, but otherwise not good. A camper van fine. The ranger guy was weird and acted as if my being there was a bother to him. No personality, very dull and stand-offish. The woman in the office seemed intimidated by him and kept quiet. Very bad vibes. I would not go back there. - Traveler John

We stayed just overnight to visit a friend. It is a well kept small park area. There are water and electric hook ups only. There is a dump station on site. The city does a good job of keeping it clean and mowed. - Honalee

Spiffed up about 3 or 4 years ago. New showerhouse/restroom building with 2 generic stalls. It's starting to show it's age and use by folks that could care less about it. Was a bit dirty and buggy inside, but everything worked as it should.
Has 50/30/20 amp electrical pedestals in good shape. All sites are paved and fairly level. Water spigots are shared between 2 sites, 2 outlets per spigot.
Great dump station setup but might be a little tight turning for larger trailers, (as is the entrance to the park). Fairly quiet in the evening and overnight, but gets noisy about 6am from traffic. - bobojay

The June 2008 review is what I would say; we also have been coming here for many years and seen it progress. It now has 50-amp power, a picnic shelter, new picnic tables, and added a small bath house (two rooms, each with a toilet, lavatory, and a shower.) - carderh

Beautiful park built by the CCC, we camped mid week and the campground was not full. No maps were available and it took time to locate where everything was located. There is a road that goes completely around the lake and campsites are spread out. Sites with electric only (no water) are on the side of the campground road closest to the lake, sites with electric and water on the opposite side.
We camped in Rocky Cove and there was no bathroom in the campground so you would have to walk or drive a short distance to Oak Point to get to them. Showers were OK, showing some wear and faucets were broken in some stalls. - Ocotillo

Nice state park. Well shaded spot. We were on a double concrete pad. - redavis

We were pleasantly surprised when we found this campground. This state park has ample tall shade trees for each site. Most sites also had concrete pads (newer sites in the park). Larger rigs will have problems here because of the site set up. We have a 32 foot travel trailer and had to move slowly. Overall, a very nice find in the middle of nowhere. - Mason Family

We were there for an over night stay, it is right off the interstate but no noise noted. We had a very long pull through site which was great for not unhooking. The owner was very helpful. - PLedet

Our stay was enjoyable. Staff live very near, knew the area and directed us to the local entertainment. They have an easy registration process and really care about their campers. The park is on RT66 in a secluded, country setting, but minutes from Carthage and Joplin. Roads and sites were gravel and mostly level, wide and easily long enough for any camper, toad or other combination to park or maneuver. Some shade, but trees didn't impede the slides, awning or satellite reception. Utilities were as expected and up to spec. Wifi is reliable even during the heavy use times. It's a nice neighborhood of overnighters and extended stays. It's still being developed, so during our next stay, it'll be interesting to see what's changed added. The aerial map is misleading and not correct when you zoom in. Zooming too close uses an older aerial photo of the park which was a junked out mobile home park. As you zoom out, the correct development of the park will appear. - duster340

Great smaller park. This park is a resurrection of an old Highway 66 mobile home park. Only thing remaining are two buildings that have been completely renovated for use as office and shower/laundry. Sites are wide and long for pull through. As a note about site length. We were towing a four wheel car trailer behind our 31' MH. Still had plenty of room to park an additional car we had for local transportation. All utilities are new and working. Shower and laundry are absolutely spotless.
One of the best parks we have stayed at for a long time. Will definitely be back. The hosts were extremely pleasant and helpful. - WAM

This is a clean park with traffic noise and train noise.
Sites are wide, near-level grass and gravel, in various lengths. A few have shade or picnic tables. Voltage is good.
Roads are gravel in very good condition.
Verizon LTE works well.
There are strong terrestrial broadcast signals from ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and PBS.
No rest rooms, showers, WiFi, cable, laundry, or credit cards. - wjzcbn
