This was an unexpected gem. We got in way after dark and had been told what spot to go to--one of 3; however, only 1 was vacant by the time we got in. Hilly but easy to get in and out of with their pull-thru. We were close to the laundry and bath and we would not hesitate to use this park again. Had a little trouble with the directions as we used an address for our GPS instead of lat/long which we should have used after dark. Friendly staff, too.
We got in late--almost 7 pm and they were still open. The Passport America rate is listed as $16 but the owner said that was for 30 amp and 50 amp was $18 plus tax. The sites are gravel and shaded but not too level. However, we've become used to that and got set up OK; we didn't unhook just connected up as we were eating in the RV, sleeping, and heading out the next day. The park is very close to I-10 about 70 miles west of Tallahassee and met our needs very well. We would stay here if we were in transit again.
We were here for a veterans get together and this was 1 of 2 parks recommended to get a veterans discount. It is just off the yellow route and on the west side of Branson. It is very quiet, very hilly and even steep in places. We dragged the bottom back of our 36 foot 5th wheel. This was the first time we'd camped in such a hilly area; we're fairly new campers. My husband said next time, he get out and walk the route to his site to avoid bending a rear stabilizer. The site was a pull through, but with a big truck and 36 foot unit, it took a little doing. All the sites are made of rock. Even though it rained a good bit, my dogs didn't track in any dirt because of the rocks and for that I was glad. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There's a small stream between the front sites and the ones in the rear. The park was not full and no one was in the rear area when we were here. Before we left on Sunday, there were campers on either side of us. If we return to Branson, we would consider staying here. It was neat, clean and well maintained. There appears to be a lot of RV parks around Branson as we discovered when we were riding around, but we'd only consider staying at one other than this one.
Just stopped in here overnight, There are 2 other parks really close but we chose this one because we requested and they had several concrete pads. There's no shade to speak of; the park has only been here 3 years but there's lots of space between the sites and it was clear weather. Don't know how the grassy sites would be in rainy weather. Plenty of open area to walk the dogs: just clean up after them. Even some goats in a nearby pasture that my dogs (who'd never seen goats) found quite interesting. We'd called in advance and we were taken promptly to our site: even before I checked in. They honor Passport America but because of the low rate charged, be prepared to use a debit card or pay cash: they don't want a credit card. An excellent place to stay just east of Mobile, AL and west of Pensacola and close to shopping in Robertsdale and Foley and not too far from the Gulf Coast beaches. Would stay here again.
It appears many parks in this area are not open on Sunday. Another park I called, I left my number with the answering machine; called the cell phone that was listed and never got a call. At this campground, I got a live person and one who said they'd be open until 8:30 pm, and on a Sunday. The park is within throwing distance of I-20 just on the east side of the Mississippi River. The sites had many trash receptacles close by and the sites were pull through. No problem getting in or out. No shade but we were here only overnight. Definitely will be on our list as a place to stay several nights when we come back to check out the historical sites. There was also a courtesy van to and from the local casino so if you didn't want to unhook your truck from your 5th wheel, you still had transportation to the casino for games and food.
We stayed here 2 nights. The sites are paved-this is obviously an older park but appears well cared for and office hours were until 7 pm. The pull-thru section is furthest from the office but we found that people had cleaned up after their pets and everything looked neat and clean. If there is a drawback, the pull-thru sites sit right next to Bear Creek Road which is a busy road but we would not hesitate to stay here again, the cable TV selection is great, we had our own Wi-Fi but we had no problems at all and that's what counts--getting in, getting set up and everything works. They also have detailed maps to area needs--grocery, stores, Biltmore Estate(this campground is only 3 miles from there).
This park suited our needs as we were in the area to see family. However, most of the RV's there are there either permanently or seasonally and there are few temporary sites for a few nights or a week. The office has short office hours--9-2:30 but everything was left on the door and we were at the front of the park. We were disappointed that cable was not available--the cables were there but they're there for people who plan to install and pay for cable. The temporary sites are gravel and not level but the park is well maintained and we would have no problems in staying here again. This is not a big tourist area and this park obviously serves the needs of those who are there.
Very friendly staff-our reservation was promptly handled. The sites are gravel and require some work to level our rig but after all, we're in hilly territory. The park is close to I-40 and I-85--some would say too close but the traffic doesn't bother us--our fan blower drowns all that out. On Monday and Thurs. there's an auto auction close enough to walk to which provides interesting, free entertainment unless one plans to buy something. We would stay here again.
