Campground is in a nice setting, trees, lake, and they are all decked out for Halloween. Laundry room was dirty and the campground needed some picking up. Wi-Fi didn't work great so we used our MiFi for Internet. Staff was just OK. Our site was somewhat level, gravel and a bit short for our 37' RV. They had larger sites, but we were put in a smaller one. We stayed one night. We camped at Perryville Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We used to stay here every year for the past five years on our trips between the Midwest and the southern states. In calling for reservations today (3/18/2015), we were informed that they are now a "Jellystone" park, and their rates have doubled, to $60.14 per night for an RV site. (Their website still shows the previous prices of $35.99 per night for a 50 amp site). It was overpriced then - the only saving grace was the convenience of being located right off the highway. Gravel sites are very uneven, sewer lines are uphill, roads are narrow, office is often closed, and many permanent residents live there in rundown trailers. At the increased price, there is absolutely no reason to stay here. We camped at Perryville Campground in a Motorhome.
There is a decent Chinese buffet nearby, and Walmart and several gas stations are close.

This campground used to be a KOA. A bit run down but a decent campground. Many permanent residents live in the campground. Owners were not that friendly or welcoming. WiFi available for 8 hours daily. Sites are not very level. Store opens late and closes early. Right on I55, so there is a lot of highway buzz. Good only if you are passing through for a night.

This is a hard park to rate. We made reservations and they checked us in quickly. We got a site in among tall trees so it was nice and shady, but our satellite TV did not work. Adding cable TV would be a huge plus. The electric, water, and sewer hookups all worked as they should. Our site was level and there is a concrete pad and picnic table to use. We were here mid week so it wasn't at all crowded. However, if the park was full we would have hated it as the sites are very close together. The layout of some sites has you back to back or front to front with your neighbor (probably so they only had to bring one line of utilities in for each pair of sites) so there would be no privacy. If you are a family with kids, they have a pool and at least five bounce house/playground/water slide type entertainments. We did go on the 4.4 mile hike around the lake, and it was very nice. You can hear the road noise constantly, but it wasn't so loud that it kept us awake at night. The WiFi worked, but it was very slow. The price is very reasonable though. For us, we would only use it as an overnight stop, not a destination. We camped at Perryville Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

I want to preface this with the fact that my wife and I have stayed here before and really liked it. That is why we wanted to go back. Be forwarned. I called to make a reservation in Jan. and got a phone message that stated that no reservations were necessary just come in. I checked again in March and got the same phone message as did my friend who was travelling with us. While on our trip my wife called again the day before we were to arrive and she got the same message. As we were pulling into the park we saw a young woman leave the office. There was an open sign on the door but, the door was locked. A salesman from their RV lot came over and opened the door for us. He then tried to locate someone to help us. Another young lady showed up and told us that there was only one 50 amp site available. There were two of us and we both needed 50 amp. The salesman again tried to help us by getting someone else. There was no doubt that this person was not happy to be helping us. And then to add insult to injury we saw her working off a reservation list. When asked about this she did not respond. I suggested that maybe they should have a real person answer their phone. We will not try to stay here again. Nothing like the last time we stayed.

The was a fantastic campground, very clean, very friendly. We stayed in a primitive cabin (they have other deluxe cabins available), it was right on a pond with great fishing. Stayed 5 days/4 nights. Cabin was very clean and had air/heat with comfortable beds. We will definitely be making a trip back to stay here. We camped at Perryville Campground in a Campground Cabin.Undo

Clean park well kept and friendly staff eager to help and register quickly and get you to your site. Offered wood and other misc items and made our family feel like we were at home for the weekend. Great place to stay and we will stay here again . We camped at Perryville Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Called ahead for reservation and given instruction to contact person on arrival. Also posted on door to office. Quick response. Site was predesignated for us. Individual took us to site and as there was snow/ice on the ground was given okay to pull out anyway I felt was best for our RV. I was also informed if we had trouble when puling out that the campground would assist us. As temperatures dropped during the night, roads were more icy when we went to leave. Observed a Fith wheel (2WD) have to retreat from one access point so went on road where more long term folks were staying. Nice place and looks like a good place for a summer stay. I'm sure winter causes problems for the campgrounds however I felt if we needed help we would have gotten it. Park rate was for Good Sam. We camped at Perryville Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

Nice campground albeit could use some maintenance regarding the sites. Most need a bit of leveling and all I saw needed gravel. Otherwise quite pleasant with clean restrooms, friendly staff. We stopped here after traveling in heavy rain coming from St Louis area and had no problem reaching someone who told us to do self checkin. Cabins looked nice, large grassy playare for kids, pavillion for parties, could be a weekend destination. Decent air tv reception and great wireless. We would stay here again if in the area.

After fighting the traffic going through St. Louis on our way South, we were ready for a stop. Next time, we'll head further West and avoid the metropolitan area. A sign on the highway alerted us to this camp, my GPS AAA directory provided a phone number, and the man answering was very helpful. There were a number of 5th wheelers and travel trailers on the site, possibly permanent, but the wooded camp looked neat and clean. No cable television, but we did pickup 3 networks using the antenna. The Wi-Fi signal at our location in the middle of the park was strong. A good overnight stop on the way to an RV park with more amenities, we'd recommend it. We camped at Perryville Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

The owner is nice and the name fits, it is a campground not an RV park. Fine for small units but we was driving a big rig and the site we was assigned was very unlevel. They were on a slight hill and the sites have not been graded or terraced so they tilt to the side. No cable and too many trees to get the satellite signals and the local stations are so far away they didn't come in very good. If you must - then one night and move on. But on your one night do not plan on TV and being level. We camped at Perryville Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

Right off the highway, older campground with good sites and shade trees, uneven gravel interior roads, mostly level sites. Good Wi-Fi, helpful staff, fishing pond. We camped at Perryville Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

Sites were very tight and small, and it was literally right next to the highway. It is a former KOA site. We did not use the pool, however it appeared clean. We will not stay here again simply because the sites were too small. We camped at Perryville Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

For those with GPS, the address is: 300 Lake Drive, Perryville, MO 63775. It was not listed on the info page and we had a devil of a time finding it in the dark. The address is the only thing we have to add to the other fine reviews as it is still dark out at 5:30 a.m. and we will be leaving in a few minutes. We stopped here on Thanksgiving night without a reservation. When we called there was a recording saying they were open with self-registration. It was dark when we got here and the sites were not lighted very well. We didn't realize that most of the sites were pull-through so we backed in. That was our own fault because we decided to park first and register after. The brochure at the registration booth clearly shows the pull-through sites.
