This is a very large campground. There are many sites for average size campers and a few sites for the bigger ones that need pull-throughs. We stayed over Labor Day weekend so of course it was full and very busy. You can rent golf carts to get around the park if you choose but to guarantee you have one, reserve it when you make your reservations. The owners were very friendly and readily available even with the huge crowd. All employees were very helpful, also. The only things close to do are fishing and boating, or there is a water park adjacent to the campground. There is only one area to dump your trash and it is clear up by the main office. It would be nice if they had a few areas throughout the campground since it is quite large. Be advised, there is very little shade. Appears that the most shade is where the permanent campers stay. There seems to be quite a few of these. If you are in the area and like to fish, boat, or go to water parks, this is a good place to stay. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Do not count on your GPS to get you to the campground. Ours was about 4-5 miles off and in the dark, it is hard to find.

Very clean and nice park. Friendly and helpful staff. Every kind of amenity a person could want, including a restaurant. Wish we could have stayed longer than two days. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If staying here, be certain to visit Hannibal, MO, 24 miles away.

Very nice park next to large water park and lake complex. This stay was over the 4th of July and it was a very good experience. I highly recommend this park for everyone, especially those with kids. Everyone well behaved even over the 4th's celebration. The campground has a convenience store and snack bar. There is an arcade which would appeal to younger kids. The water park is a short walk from the campground entrance and appeared to be busy. The menu at it's snack bar was more extensive. A very nice place to spend a relaxing weekend or more. We definitely will stay here again. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our one night visit. Very peaceful and quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff. Satellite friendly. Their store is well stocked and nice and neat. Clean restrooms. Nice sit down restaurant; I wished the menu was a little larger. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Motorhome.

This park has new management and a new attitude! A lot of the problems mentioned on older reviews are gone. The Wi-Fiis great - and the only Internet in town. Our Verizon hot spot didn't work very well here. The cable TV is great! The pools and play areas are very nice and activities are away from the RVs. The back-in spaces are wide and roomy with a cement slab to park on and a wide cement patio for entertaining. My only complaint is that 2 spaces share a water spigot using a plastic Y joint-- some of which are stripped and hard to get to not leak. If you're the RV on the wrong side of the spigot, it means dragging a hose under your RV across your patio. This is the only reason I didn't give the park a 10. Water spigots seems like a strange thing to economize on. The staff is friendly and helpful. The pull-through spots in the back of the park are isolated. I'd recommend the cheaper back-ins which are more centrally located. There are many long term residents in the park but their campsites are neat. The feel of the park is that of a short term, amusement type of park with lots of water activities around it. There are only 2 showers in the bathroom - they could use more for this size of a park. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Motorhome.

We camped here four nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They did seem to be somewhat inexperienced and there was some confusion at the desk. I do not agree with the previous review which was unfair to the current staff. While the staff are welcoming, the check-in procedures are not. Upon registration you are presented with a list of twenty-four rules and regulations and the dire consequences of failing to follow them. The campground is visually cluttered with signs about "No's and Don'ts". The operation appears to be geared to a large population of seasonal campers and cabins. The transient sites are along the road by the pool. They can be very noisy. You will need to share a water hook-up with your neighbor and will need a very long hose. They did not tell us this upon making the reservation or checking in. While in a beautiful setting, this park has some significant flaws. There is no trash pickup. The only dumpster is at the entrance, which is very far from some of the sites. There are no receptacles for dog waste. The Cable is snowy and the Wi-Fi is not functional. If you travel with a Verizon hot spot, it will not work there. The county roads to the area are very adequate for a 44,000 lb. motorhome. Your GPS may try to tell you differently.

Decent park with adequately paved sites, some shade, swimming pool and a waterpark. The location is close to launch ramps for the lake, and park has some overnight storage area for our boat. However, the management that is currently operating this park appears to only be interested in revenue and not guest satisfaction, making up policy changes to serve their interests. I think the site we had along the main drag was nice; it was shady and decent size. There was a playground down the road but our kids (over 11) were told not to enter as they were too old to climb, swing, and slide down the 3 story monster play place. The bathrooms were functional and appeared clean, but lacked shelving, benches, fans, and only had one small mirror above the sink. Free Wi-Fi was sporadic and slow at best. No Sprint service on our cell phones. We tried the food in the restaurant, and we equally disappointed. They really don't have a menu, just Hunt Brothers pizza and wings, coupled with sodas and milk shakes. So much potential to be a great park, but they need to have more interest in guest satisfaction to deserve a higher rating. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Motorhome.

This is a very good park. The staff are nice and helpful. The sites are paved and well kept. The only bad thing is the rules are not for everyone. Some let their dogs out and do NOT put a leash on them.The speed limit is for cars only. If you have a golf cart you may speed. Will go here again just not on a weekend. They need to enforce the leash law on the dogs. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice enough park which would be good for families. The Park is mostly seasonals but all were clean and in good shape. The sites were level on a cement pad with good space in between. The cable TV was snowy so we went to the antenna and the reception was great, of course not as many channels. The WiFi was good most of the time, but during the weekend it slowed down. The people were friendly. There was a tremendous amount of golf carts, which made it noisy and busy during the weekend. You share the water hook up with the neighbor so bring a long hose. We would return. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

The dominant note at this park is cheerful competence. The staff is friendly and helpful. The grounds are well maintained and the facilities are clean and neat. Paved interior roads lead to spacious sites with concrete pads. A lot of amusements are available making this a good destination park for families. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park that is off of the beaten path. The sites have 20, 30, and 50 amp service. Free 24 channel cable TV and Wi-Fi at the sites. The roads are well cared for and no over hanging tree limbs. The staff was very friendly upon check in. Our rate is based on Passport America's price. We visited in the off season so park was very quiet, but with the water park in the summer months this park could be very busy. We would use this park again.

If you like being out of the way, it's a great place! We wanted to see most of Hannibal, so it was a bit of a drive. The people were friendly, had Wi-Fi, cable TV and nice bathrooms/showers. It was a quiet park, with well spaced sites and a view of what they call a lake! It appears they have 'seasonal rigs' but it didn't bother us. The time of year that it was for us visiting they also had shutdown a lot of their activities, that also didn't bother us as we probably wouldn't have used them and we didn't have children with us, but I can see it would be a fun park to stay at with children.

Nice campground. Just spent one night but would return if in the area. Staff was accommodating with directions and such. Showers were clean. A lot of semi-permanent RV'S, but all were well kept. Looked more like a RV timeshare park than a regular RV Park. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Travel Trailer.

Our family loves Mark Twain Landing. This was our third year of going to the park. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Staff member took the time to help us get backed into our site. The adjacent water park offered a pass for 2 days for a family of four for $49. The facilities are well maintained and clean. The playground is second to none. If you are looking for a great family park this is it. We camped at Mark Twain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.
