Although this campground has over 22 sites, only 4-5 sites are available for traveling RVer's. The rest of the sites are being used by long term residents. The park has the look and feel of a mobile park. Some sites have a lot of "stuff" around their area. The park still looks OK, but it can easily get out of hand.

All available sites have FHU, some are pull-thus. The utility box contains 50/30 electrical amperage and the location of the box varies from site to site. The voltage was hovering around 122 volts even with all of the air conditioners running. Our water connection was shared between two rigs, but other sites did not.

The interior roads and sites were on packed gravel and some sites had a small concrete patio area. The sites appear to be fairly level. There is a small work out room with a stair master and weights. There is one bathroom with shower for the entire park located within the laundry room. There are (2) washers at $1.50 and (2) dryers at $1.50.

The WiFi was very good but that may depend upon where your site is. Verizon air card and phone reception was good. The campground is very quiet.

The park is about 4 miles from St. Joseph making it a very good location. The Patee house is an excellent museum. We would come back to this park. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here because it is a Passport America park and based on previous reviews. A year ago, someone rated this park a ten. Really? A ten? This park is not a ten rating. I am surprised by the previous reviews. There is no staging area when you pull into the park. We were blocking the road while checking in at the office/private residence. We had a reservation and were already assigned a spot. The manager told me it was the only spot available. Sites are close together. There are numerous large, established shade trees, but those spots were taken by permanent residents. Previous review said only 2-3 spots available for overnighters. I believe that is accurate. We were given what must be the worst spot in the park. We parked parallel to the park road near the exit. We were barely out of the road and about 50 yards from Highway 59. Traffic noise was very bad. Worse was that our awning side was next to the interior road. We literally stepped out into the road when we opened our door. We got half price ($15.00) first night (Passport America) and a further discount ($20.00 second night). Great Internet. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay on 2 occasions. $14.00 for 1 night Passport America. $20/night for 7 nights. Most sites are permanents or semi permanent. We were not bothered by workers arriving or leaving early.
No road noise if you are not in the front row. Not many overnight sites. Owner, Rick Clark, and manager are very helpful. There is a shower/toilet room. Good laundry and small Gym room.
Most size motorhomes can be accommodated. We stayed in a 26' MH. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Motorhome.

Call to make sure they have a spot. Passport America people come in nearly every night.
The Walter Cronkite museum was interesting.

Small park, only two over night sites. Gravel not level, wifi worked. Some road noise, lots of noise from permanents leaving in the morning for work. Utilities were good. Some shade. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Motorhome.

We just overnighted but it is ideal for that. Can't beat full hookups, easy in and out, close proximity to gas, restaurants, and shopping, and Passport America rate of $14. We were in one of the 3-4 overnight sites which were very easy to get in and out of but were closest to US-169, which was noisier but tolerable. All were gravel and level. All hookups were convenient and worked fine. Wi-Fi was great. Could even stream my recorded Dish DVR stuff from home with very few pauses. There is no cable but antenna picked up about 30 KC stations. We'd not try out the bathrooms or laundry. Not even sure if they had one. Would definitely stay here again if passing through or even staying for a few days. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Small, clean and well maintained. Power was great on this 90 degree day! Everyone was very friendly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice attendant met me as I pulled in on short gravel entry. Quick explanation asking about RV associations lead to $20/night for a pull through with 50amp. He lead me with golf cart through short gravel road with tight turns to a single pull-through with overhead trees. Nice long term residents, older style park, clean but tight. Adequate for one night to get off road, good power, Direct-TV access after several moves. Adjacent to camp road. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Motorhome.

This TINY park is FULL of long term residents with only one or two open spots for travelers. The amount of yard clutter and crap being stored around or under the residences made me feel as though this was the SLUMS of campgrounds. We spent one night on our way to other destinations. The site given us was level enough(ish), but there was barely enough space to open the slides. No ability to sit outside because you were in jeopardy of being run over by vehicles (that's how close we were to the road edge). I would not recommend, unless your desperate! This place needs to clean up it's act and make the long term residents uphold some kind of aesthetic rules. What a DUMP! We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Far from the nicest place we ever stayed at. Decent neighborhood. We had a "pull through" site. Location was alongside a deep ditch and next to one of the roads in the campground. No room to put out the awning. Worried about one of our slides getting hit from passing traffic within park. Owner was friendly as were other residents. Mostly long term tenants. Lots of traffic noise. We wouldn't go back. Some of the other sites might be a lot better. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice park right off I-29 Business. This park has a lot of locals and limited spaces, suggest you call ahead. They have a nice pull through right at the entrance. We had a 33' with tow and it was fine. A 40' might have problems. Friendly staff was waiting to help us to site as soon as we pulled in. Loop road looks tight but is fine. Pull through site was level. Wi-Fi (Tango) works fine. Only 5 miles to downtown and lots of food and shopping. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Motorhome.

I agree with the positive comments from previous reviews. Getting phone reservation was easy with and individual was polite and helpful. Upon pulling in, the manager was walking up. We paid and drove to our site. There are a lot full time residents, but everything is kept neat, no junk. When walking our dog, I saw the manager sitting near the entrance and I joined him. Later, a couple of other residents arrived and we had a great visit. St. Joseph is nearby and has everything you need from WalMart to brand-name restaurants. Very convenient for overnight and a great place to spend several days to see St. Jo. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend it. We had a nice site with 50 amp service and our roof mount sat dish received strong signal. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Motorhome.

We used this pretty little park for a one night stopover on a trip west. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We were given a pull through that was right off the road. It wasn't very level but we managed to make it work. The hookups all worked just fine and it was very quiet at night. There are a lot of permanent folks here but they were friendly and the park is very clean and neat. They seem to have a great little community there! We would stay here again. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was very clean, friendly full timers, friendly managers. We stayed a week so that our daughter could finish her on line schooling. The WiFi worked great. It doesn't provide tables, grills or fire pits because it's more of a "stop and rest for a few days" type of place, not a campground. We would stay again.

Very friendly, helpful, call and we'll direct you in. Large pull-through sites. We didn't even disconnect our towed vehicle. Easy to connect to water, power and sewer. No frills, no internet, no cable. This is, as previously stated, a permanent residence park. It's so easy to get to from the highway. We appreciated being here for the night. There is highway noise, if that bothers you. It worked for us. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Motorhome.
