This is nice COE campsite. Good paved interior roads. Paved full hookup campsites. However, the water and sewer were poorly located relative to the bad and the electrical was on the curb side. The staff is nice and helpful. There aren't many restaurants or other services in the area. We got satellite but had to be careful where we positioned the rig to be able to get through the trees. Verizone was 2 bar 4G. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Motorhome.

There is an ice cream shop with OK food a very short walk away. There is a nature trail with a nice vertical climb for those who want a little exercise.

Would have rated a 10 if it was on the lake. We love COE parks and this is a great one. Long asphalt site. Level. Plenty of room to park our tow vehicle. Well kept park. Got good Verizon cell and MIFI. As this site is partial sunny/shade, got good DirectTV reception too. Not a thing to complain about. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the best COE campgrounds I've stayed in. Remote, but within a reasonable distance of Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Beautiful well maintained park with friendly staff. Very good roads leading up to and within the park. Extra parking on your already spacious site. We stayed in the East Loop site 50. We would stay here again. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

Nearby there were several cafes, gas stations, and a small grocery store. The Wappapello Recreation Area has two parts. The Lake area and the Spillway area. There is a swimming beach, boat ramp, picnic area and visitors center on the lake. Lake Wappapello State Park is across the lake and well worth the drive. Poplar Bluff is about fifteen miles away and has numerous restaurants and plenty of shopping.

First time to the area, so we didn't make reservations. The campground is divided into 2 different areas West 1-40 sites and across the highway 42-100. VERY clean campground!! Bathrooms were very well maintained by the camp hosts. Showers were very nice and hot. We drove around the area and looked at the other campgrounds, and were glad we chose this one . We will definitely be coming back. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

Booked here because of the excellent reviews on previous posts. Park was just okay. Unfriendly guy at check-in couldn't even tell me where to buy firewood. I guess he's never been asked that question before. Park was quiet and clean. Spots not very level. Would not book here again. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Golden Age discount. We have stayed here before about 3 years ago, and found the area to be much the same as it was then. Nice quiet park, kept up well, does have some traffic noise from the highway but not that bothersome. Spaces on the west side are mostly level, full hook ups. 50 amp power was steady at 123V, water pressure was about 70 PSI. Sites are generally well spaced, fire ring, lantern holder and table. Numerous camp hosts and park attendants here, most have individual jobs. Did not use showers or restrooms. There is no water access here, boat dock is about 2 miles away. There is a very nice visitor center with information about the dam and history, things for kids to touch and do. Visitor center host was very nice, knowledgeable about the area and history of the lake and dam. There is a small grocery store in town that will suit most needs and a very nice little café and ice cream shop. The only thing we found annoying here was the constant traffic through the park, mostly "looky-lous" driving through from the main road, many people going too fast for safety. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Price reflects Senior Interagency Pass. What you'd expect from a COE campground: clean, well kept up, great volunteers. Full hook-ups throughout. Has special activities. We were here during their Halloween weekend. It was full, but still nice. We enjoyed the trick and treaters, and decorated sites. We'd stay here again.

Rate is with National Parks Senior Pass. Easy to find the park a few miles north of highway 60 and well worth the drive. All interior roads are paved, very clean, and huge. Park has buddy sites also available. We used satellite service, but large trees may be a challenge to satellite access at some of the sites. We did see several campers that had over the air antennas deployed, but we did not check for OTA TV. AT&T and Verizon service good. Excellent CG for an overnight or much longer stay.

Rate reflects our America The Beautiful senior pass rate. Very nice COE park, website map is a bit deceiving, because it’s a state highway that runs thru the park separating the 2 different camping areas. We thought we were getting a quiet secluded spot in area 1 and it turned out to be right near the main highway. However, the traffic noise did not deter our enjoyment. Park is kept clean; the visitor’s center for the dam is very nice and hosted by a wonderful volunteer who is very knowledgeable and helpful. Park was quiet during our visit, even over the weekend; however there is no speed limit and vehicles move very quickly thru the park, this could be a deterrent to those with young children. Most dogs on a leash, none running loose out of their own camps. Water pressure is high; a couple of power spikes late in the evening, but for the most part, electric stayed on; we got a strong Verizon signal for phone and Wi-Fi. Lots of wildlife and birds, saw deer, hummingbirds, and some free range chickens. Several camp volunteers in the park, all were helpful. Lots of areas for fishing/boating and picnicking When you visit, be sure to make a trip to the Eagle Nest Winery. It’s a quaint, charming home vineyard, with great food, wine and friendly service. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Probably one of the best COE parks that I have been in. Very clean, level sites, well maintained and quiet. Better reserve before you go because it can get filled up in a hurry. About 20 minutes north of Poplar Bluff and out in the woods. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here twice this summer and will return. Park has separate picnic area that overlooked the lake. There are several play areas for the kids if you have them, beach, and much more. We will return. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is divided in 2 sections, each across the street from the other. A several minute drive to the swimming beach which held hot, stagnant water. Typical shower/bath house for corps of engineers campground. Adequate playground. Shady, well spaced sites. Lots of standing water around water spigot. Quiet, but we were there during the week. We stayed there due to its location, not as a destination. Go if you must. We camped at Redman Creek Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.
