$9 price reflects Senior National Park Pass. We camped in Site 145 in Cedar Ridge Loop, 50-amp electric; as the full-hookup sites were already taken. 145 is a long (81') site with lots of room and privacy (trees) on both sides; also across from the restroom/showers. Sites are paved, with gravel for picnic table and fire ring. Many sites, ours included, have quite a slope from front to back! Be sure to bring blocks to back up on. This campground was clean, grass was mowed; restrooms just OK - hot water in the shower. It was quiet during the week. We would definitely stay there again if in the area. We camped at Ray Behrens COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice, big spots, some with full hookups. Many are fairly level and paved. Well run campground. Downside is poor cellular coverage, so no 3G that we could get. Several TV channels available. Many boaters say here as the boat ramps and marina are close. No swimming in nearby area and campground is not on lake. We will come back again. We camped at Ray Behrens COE in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of three COE campgrounds on Mark Twain Lake. The sites have great spacing between them and each has a fire ring, picnic table, and lantern post. The sites are paved and most are long. The first and second loop have a few full hookup sites. The third loop offers electric only sites. While the sites are fairly level side to side, there are a few that have quite a bit of slope front to back. The campground is clean and well maintained. I was in site 69 and able to get most of the major networks over the air by pointing my antenna to the northeast. The only thing I didn’t like about the campground was all of the sites require you to back in on the passenger side. A heads up for those using Blue Totes, the dump station is by the registration office and is a rather long distance from the camping loops. There is also a marina close to the campground. My nightly rate reflects a 50% seniors discount. We camped at Ray Behrens COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites with plenty of room and shade. Nice place to ride bike or walk. Some sites have water and electric but some only electric. This campground is consistent with all other COE parks we have visited. We have never been disapointed with a COE campground and this one is no exception.

This campground has three loops, each with a separate name. The warm weather meant the Corp of Engineers had to open the third loop. It was nearly filled. Other nearby COE sites had already closed for the season thus the reason for the crowds. When I say crowds I do not mean crowded. The sites are nicely spaced and quite private. Lots of mature oak trees so the acorn fall was in full swing. Fortunately they tend to fall during the day. We had planned an overnight stay but liked the location so much we ended up staying three days. A fair number of fishermen interspersed with other campers. The new visitor center at Canon Dam had opened days earlier and is worth the visit. We took a two mile hiking trail right off our campground loop. Sites are not perfectly level. These campgrounds are all on ridges, thereby there is a variety of sizes and slopes. It appears most are level side to side but not always front to back. There were sites accommodating motorhomes but not all sites would work. I did not see pull through sites. Water is only available at one or two locations in each loop and the only sewer is at the dumping station near the campground entrance. The dumping station does not have potable water and you will need a hose to fill at the water spigots. We camped at Ray Behrens COE in a Travel Trailer.

This is Corp of Engineer's park. This campground is large and spread out with plenty of room. Very well taken care of with clean everything. Most sites are plenty long, but many sites have too much slope for motorhome. Large playground for kids. On Holiday weekends you will need reservations. Big lake for fishing if you have a boat. We camped at Ray Behrens COE in a Motorhome.
