Far from the worst place I've stayed at. Older park but not full of junk like many. Concrete parking spots and small patios, not in the best shape but beats going through the mud. This is a suitable place for a night or two. Cable worked good. Reasonably good part of town. Easy to get in and out. Friendly staff. Several long term residents. Not a lot of choices in this area to stay at. This is probably the best one. We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We made reservations (for a pull-through) and we believe that host used this as an excuse to give us the worst site in park. Other much nicer sites were available. We stepped out of our door to mud and it rained so it was muddier. We faced an old old board fence about 8 feet from door. We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is just passable for an overnight stay. It is tight to get into and out of, and spaces are quite close together. Pictures on their web site must be of the one somewhat attractive site. There are a lot of permanents in the park. However, we would stay here again for an overnight. The park is conveniently located, and Wi-Fi and cable worked well. We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park was really close to a highway where there was lots of motor noise. Its a great over night stay but not for a relaxing vacation. We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park was clean, few permanents and easy in and out. Free internet and lots of cable channels. It is on a busy street, but being down from the street level, was very quiet. The site was uneven, but easy to find a level location. Don't know what park the previous reviewers were looking at, but they grossly misrepresented this park. Would definitely stay here again.

Place is awkward to get into for a larger unit. Lady who was in the office was nice. Place is older and in a neighborhood. No dedicated dog area, but plenty of room to walk dog. Quiet at night We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park entrance is on a busy highway with a very, very steep driveway to the office. Mostly residents in mobile homes, that have bags of trash, junk and broken down cars all over the place! Park is open to traffic from several entrances, and security is non existent. Concrete slabs are broken, with huge chunks missing. Dirty and dusty, with dead landscape made for a very poor appearance around the sites. The only positive thing we can say is that it was close to a business that we had to visit while passing through Missouri. Will NOT stay here again! We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is not an RV campground, just a trailer park. Very difficult to drive down the road due to cars and trucks parked halfway into the street. Concrete sites are cracked and broken and not level. Very unkempt grounds, way overpriced. Office reeked of cigarette smoke. Lots of permanent residents. Staff was friendly but this place needs some major improvement. I would not stay here again, ever!

Agree with another reviewer that I don't know how this park earned a Good Sam rating. It's very small, no place to walk or play with pets, and right off of a very busy road. When we arrived there had been a fender bender between a big rig and a truck. Rather than directing us around the mess to a comfortable site via the city streets that surround the park the on-duty manager squeezed us into a site where you could barely open the door without hitting a retaining wall. The restrooms smelled of cigarettes and were not particularly clean. We were only there for one night but I would not go back. We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Disappointing for a Good Sam Park. Set on Belt Highway and on a hill. First appearance is junkie. This was reinforced when we entered the office area. The park sells electronic cigarettes and candles and this dominates the office area: which is also cluttered. There are RVs at the top of the hill and on down. Some of the trailers are not in very good shape. Restrooms and laundry at the crest of the hill (most of the RVers are down the hill). Parking for one truck only and many park on the road rather than in their spot making travel (including backing out) through the park challenging. We found the staff to be less than friendly. There is an overall sense of not caring. Very few if any repairs have been made to sites including the concrete pads, gravel or grass. While the park does accept pets, there is little space for them to be walked: especially when the park is busy. There are no sidewalks outside the park. We are fulltime RVers and would not stay here again. We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Off a very busy street & very hard to find. Not much room to park while registering. Office is crowded & messy. Sites are end to end so we were glad it wasn't too busy so that we could leave our towed car hooked up as we stayed only 1 night. Office help was friendly & helpful as was the owner who did come into the office later. There is an oriental restaurant across the street but otherwise you would have to drive to find a restaurant as there are no sidewalks along this busy street. We will try a different park next time. We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed one night here while going home. Was ok for just a stopover, but I wouldn't stay more than that. It had that "trailer park" feel and look. Had a lot of permanent units. Attendant was friendly and helpful, he helped us back in to our site. Wi-Fi was great and cable TV must have had 60 channels. We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I would drive three hours to avoid this park. I would have left after checking in had I known it was going to be so bad and if I didn't mind driving at night. I tried three times to take a shower and each time there were people waiting to get in. When it was finally free, I took one look and couldn't bring myself to shower. Filthy. The owner was cordial and showed me to my site. I was fortunate that it didn't rain because right outside my door was deep mud--I would have sunk above my ankles. I had asked for a pull through when I called, but he said they reserved those for big rigs that pull in over night. I can understand his reasoning; however, I don't expect an inferior, dirty, unlevel site because I have a small trailer. The park (if you want to call it that) is on a busy street. The only good thing for me was that there is a KFC right across the 5 lane highway, and I was able to get something to eat without unhooking. We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Old campground, poorly laid out. To get to our site we had to leave the campground, go out on a 5 lane road to get back into the other side. There was no good place to park your tow vehicle. Everyone was parked half on the sidewalk, half on the street. Be forewarned, they charge extra for everything and don't tell you! They advertise 50 amp, cable TV and WiFi. They do have it all BUT you have to pay $1.25 each night for each of these, it does add up! We camped at Beacon RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a pull through which wasn't really a pull through, but was adequate. Needed gravel on the sites but was parked under a tree so had lots of shade. We stayed here due to our truck breaking down and the hostess was very friendly. Checked with us several times to make sure we were doing okay. Not a 5 star park but was a nice little park.
