We were all set to spend 3 nights here. After reading previous reviews at least 2 yrs old I thought we'd give it a try. I thought there had been a change in ownership because the rate for a 50 amp site was $25/night. What the small print said was an additional $12.50/person so $50/night for 2 of us. Definitely not worth it. We talked to a host who was nice as can be but he said he didn't make the rates. I offered $35/night and he just smiled and shrugged, said "I can't do that, I ain't the boss". I pointed out that we were the only ones there and that they'd be$35 richer per night than if we went some where else. He just gave me a nice smile. We had a very cordial conversation but I decided to go to another park about a mile away. Roads and sites were gravel and the whole park was under at least 10' of water in May 2017. Site was more or less level and had nice shade. The roads were easy to get around on and no tight turns. It's literally right on the river and is a great location. However that's about all that it's got going for it. I talked to a few people in the area about it and they just rolled their eyes and said if I liked to party that was the place. We never got to look a the showers or bathrooms. We camped at Current River Campground in a Motorhome.

I booked this campground at the last minute on Labor Day Weekend. The woman at the front desk was nice and helpful. However the older man who took us to our site was kinda of rude. At first sight we were disappointed with our camp site. It was very rock and had a few tree roots in the way. After moving the picnic table around and a bit of creativity it turned out to be a nice last minute camp site. The shower house was exceptionally clean. Probably the cleanest I have ever seen camping. Especially with the amount of people this weekend. There was several groups partying but they were all quite by midnight. We didn't care for having to wear the arm bands. I would camp here again. We camped at Current River Campground in a Tent.

Tips for other Campers:

Stop by Jolly Cone and River Stream Restaurant. If you bring your own Kayaks go to the Landing Hotel Office to pay for your float trip it is cheaper.

Do not go to this place ever. Don’t waste your money. Awful place, awful people, rude owners, incompetent staff, unsafe environment. Never ever take children here! If I could give a negative rating on this campground I would. We stayed at this campground over July 4th weekend 2014. Our experience is best described at absurdly horrific. The campsite next to us had an outdoor orgy. Drunkenness and lewdness all over. Loud obscenities shouted from other sites all night long. There were people having sex and vomiting in the bathroom/shower area. We were lied to about the condition of our campsite as it was underwater when they confirmed reservations. Our credit card number was stolen via the use of smartphone text. No security driving the property as promised. No cell service to call authorities. Portable toilets pushed over by drunk patrons. Rude unapologetic owners that wouldn't give us a less than $100 refund. This was the worst experience we ever had camping and we won't be back to the state of Missouri. As we were leaving a lady in an RV said they had a similar experience. Do not take your RV or go tent camping at this place. It is unsafe, unclean, and poorly managed. This is a hedonistic establishment and not family friendly! We camped at Current River Campground in a Tent.

Very poor management, drinking and partying is encouraged. Management was rude to campers and it is the most expensive campground in the area. We camped at Current River Campground in a Motorhome.
