Overall it is a good campground. Easy in and out. We have stayed here spring and fall as we travel through. This is about our 5th time. The price seems to be rather high. $36 something. That was after Good Sam discount. Cable tv is minimal. This trip we also have a car with us and was charged $2.00 even though it is parked on our site with the trailer and truck. 27 yrs. of being a full timer and this is only the second time we have been charged for a second vehicle. I told the very nice polite young man behind the counter to tell the boss that this is not a $40.00 per site campground. And our car is not taking up any extra space and that next fall we will go on down the road to a different place. BTW the park is almost totally empty, next fall there will be at least one less than otherwise could be.
Lady at check-in was nice enough. However, I had asked her if there were any tree limbs to be concerned with, she replied, oh no!! We were told to go to the rear of the park and park on either site 323 or 325. On the way there we had to pull way over to the left on the edge of the dirt road to miss a very large limb. We parked on a very large level pull-through site. The other one was blocked off by several concrete blocks. Hookups all worked well. The site we parked on and the next one to us was littered with several dozen cigarette butts, two beer cans and numerous pull tabs and beer bottle caps. Also, someone had dumped a charcoal cooker in the middle of the site leaving a large mess. Makes us wonder if employees ever walk through the park to look things over. Also, at check-in the nice lady asked if we were Good Sam members and I answered yes and started to dig out the card, but she said, "I do not need to see the card." Which makes us think everyone gets the discount which makes it a meaningless joke. Directions to get to the park were somewhat difficult to follow. Good level sites with good hookups but no excuse for the large tree limb and all the litter.
Rough gravel unkept road. Many pretty trees with limbs hanging out and down that scratch the roof and sides of MH's and 5th wheels. PPA book says $12.50 per night. We checked in after driving up a bad gravel road to a house to "see the lady". Only to find out that 50 amp sites are $13.00 PPA is only honored for 2 nights. Fee is $26.00 per night after that. Also there is a flat $1.00 per day tax. Bad road, bad trees, bad listing in the PPA book. Bad check in system. Use at your own risk. Might be OK for tents and very small campers. We will be in there area again but will stay somewhere down the road.
Last Oct. we paid the $20.00 Passport America (PA) price and thought it was a rip off. But it is a convenient location near Hwy 35, with mostly level pull through sites. Today we arrived because it fit into our travel plans. We arrived to learn that now the price is $50.00; $25.00 with PA. This is a gravel / dust bowl with Wi-Fi. I did not see or use their little old restrooms, so cannot commit. We have been full timers for only 16 yrs. and have traveled more than a few places. We sat in a variety of campgrounds. This is NOT a campground worthy of a $50.00 price tag. At most it is a $20.00 park, with a PA. price of $10.00. We will NOT stay here again. The easy location is all they have to offer. When we are in the area again we will roll on by looking for a better value.
I agree with many of the comments found in several of the older reviews. The speed bumps (curbs) are way too harsh. The sites are very close together. The landscaping of bushes, short bushy trees and large rocks are a hindrance to getting onto and off of many (most) of the sites unless you have a rather small rig. The lady in the office is very friendly and helpful. The man (I think the owner) is sort of OK until someone suggest that they have a concern of some kind. Then he becomes defensive and of NO help. I saw a rig trying to exit their site. The woman was watching the rear corner of the trailer as the guy was turning left to exit. One of the many bushy trees was a concern. The woman signaled for the driver to stop. He got out of the truck to look. Yes, the trailer was in fact in contact with one of the pesky trees. The owner guy was on his cart watching. He saw the whole incident and proceeded to drive away in the direction of the office offering no help or showing no concern. The couple bent and pushed the limbs out and past the trailer as best they could. The electric power is none too strong. With a little attention to the place and a little better attitude this could be a much better park. This place has no real competition and the owner knows it. Too bad. Yes, we would reluctantly stay here again.
Self registration. Interior roads are fair, not good. Our site and others seemed to be level and large enough for big rigs. Utilities very good. Office and club house were locked up. Never saw anyone that appeared to be in charge. For train and road noise to be a problem you would need to be listening for it. A little high priced for what you get. Yes, we would stay here again.
Stayed here 9-17 and 9-18. Office lady VERY friendly and helpful. Gave us a choice of 4 sites. All were pull through sites. Very quiet peaceful park. Do not know why any one would not be happy to stay here. It is not meant to be a 5 star resort. It is clean well cared for and friendly. One half mile north of I-44 About 5 miles west of Cuba. We will for sure always stay at Lady Bug Park on our return visits to this area.
We have used this park 2 - 3 times per year since the mid seventies. In the past several years we have seen it gradually deteriorate. The interior roads are very bad. The sites are in need of repair. It has many, many trees which are nice except most of them are in need of trimming. The park in general is just run down. We had made reservations through coast to coast. And was given a confirmation letter and number. Upon our arrival the two girls had no knowledge of a reservation. Assigned me to a site number that I knew that our 5th wheel would not fit on. We was given another site. The gravel road was washed out and difficult to drive on up a hill to get to the site. I had to climb up on my roof to trim two limbs so I could pull the rest of the way onto the site. The last two times we stayed here I declared that we would never return. This time I am making good on my announcement. It is a shame because it was and could be a very nice park in a very pretty setting. The trees and the lake are very nice. We will travel west of Cuba about 4 or 5 miles and stay at The Lady Bug Park. We have many very fond memories of Meramec Vally CG. but it is time to move on.
Very friendly owners and it was easy in and out of this park. Has flat, level pull-through as well as back-in sites. There are fuel stations and cafes near by. It's close to I-80 however road noise was not very noticable. Would sure stay here again.
Owners were very friendly and helpful, and the park well cared for. Great location if you are touring the area including the Grand Coulee Dam. Sites on the hill are easy in and out and roomy enough. Rather dusty, but it is a desert area. They do water down the main road. Would stay here again for sure.
This campground is listed in the Passport America directory and lists a fee of $16.00 per night. The nice lady told me it would be $18.00. I asked why. Her reply was the boss told her to charge PPA $18.00, which included $2.00 for a/c and/or electric heat. I explained I was not going to use either. Her reply was that the boss says that all campers say they will not use it, but they always do. I told her that the boss has never seen me, and yet he is calling me a dishonest liar. I paid the $18.00. It seems to me the boss is the dishonest one. He clearly advertises one price but charges another. The campground has folks staying there long term, including 2 tenters. In one word it is a dump. No, we will never stay there again. The campground has small crowded sites. Trash is everywhere.
Well maintained park. Friendly people in the office. Some sites have trees hanging into the sites. Can be difficult to miss tree limbs. It seems that most trees in parks do not get trimmed. Would stay here again.
If you get the right site you will have a good view. Many sites have trees that will be up against your rig. One full day before we departed, we asked the gal behind the desk if someone could maybe cut 3-4 limbs. She acted like I had slapped her. No one came by to do that. Only because no one was parked on the site behind us was we able to back out. Cafe on site was very good food with large potions. Rather price as is everything in St. Mary, Mt. There is a KOA across the road. If we visit the area again we would stay at the KOA which has far fewer trees and more level sites. Of course, when you check into a KOA we know KOA stands for keep on adding.
