Outstanding RV park. Being new to RV parks and having camped only at a few places last year, we thought places like this was the norm - excellent camp store, basic restaurant, arcade/game room, mini golf, swimming, nice lake to walk around or fish on, and nice big shade trees. Then we camped other places in Wisconsin and Missouri this year, and found out just how special this place is! It's like the Hilton of RV parks! And don't even get me going on the fresh-cooked donuts on the weekend! You can go to camp here for several nights, and never need to leave to "find something to do". Details: good site, hookups (except no sewer where we were this year and last year) and level. Did have to back in. WiFi at clubhouse actually reaches out to the campers near it as well, so I could get work done, too. Excellent store and staff. Very nice walking or biking around the lake, takes at least 60 minutes, depending on how often your kids stop to play at the several playgrounds! (probably a 30 minute stroll, otherwise) Very nice mini golf. Little car racetrack. Swimming pond and fishing lake (rowboats only). Indoor HEATED swimming pool, which is really nice in Wisconsin's fickle weather. VERY kid-friendly. Clean and well-kept without being at all oppressive, as some parks are. Downside - no sewer hookup at the sites close to the clubhouse. Not a lot of pull throughs. Overall, we plan to go there at least once a year for the foreseeable future. Hoping to camp with some friends side-by-side, too.

We camped here just one night on way through. Didn't even unhitch. Easy in, easy out, level, and big beautiful shade trees, nice fire-ring in ground. Good playground and swimming pool and store. Good WiFi and hookups. Spotless campground and nice long sites, if a bit close together. Downside - too many rules! We are a pretty quiet family with 2 small children. I didn't like feeling like if they did practically anything that we might be told to leave. This is definitely a campground for planning a quiet stay with no intention of kids riding or playing on their own. However, it is certainly easy to find, right by the freeway, and rates were reasonable, although the number above is just a guess.

We camped just 1 night here on our way home from Oklahoma. Really nice folks - we got lost on the way (don't trust your Garmin GPS to find this place - the campground is right by the highway but Garmin took us out into farm roads!) and despite it being after 9 pm the park attendant was still waiting for us and gave us good directions there, and guided us right to our spot. Nice and long, we didn't even unhitch. Site width was fine, though not spacious. Full hookups fine. Good WiFi. Not very scenic locale, as very close to the highway and nestled between other things, but OK. Great staff/owners. Got our LP refilled quickly and fairly. 1 was mostly empty, 1 barely used. Owner topped off the one for free, and just charged us for the other. Small but nice pool. No mini golf as I recall, and I don't think much playground. The store has nice mementos and some useful RV stuff. Little or no food in the camp store as I recall, but, the new owner plans to update the store, so hopefully that will change. (A cooler with milk and orange juice in it is always nice, and some good ice cream makes it perfect!) Overall, it was a nice little RV park. We plan to stop there again on our way to/from Oklahoma.

This was a nice Branson RV park. What that means is that, like all the parks we saw there (which certainly isn't all), it was on a ridgetop, so not a lot of spare room to walk/ride around once parked. The middle of the park where we were has little shade, but the sites on the edges are real pretty, looking into the Ozark hills on either side of the park. In 20 years the middle of the park will be well-shaded too, with the trees that are growing now. The camp store was very sparse, not much RV stuff or food. The attendants were really nice though, and very helpful, gave good local visiting tips. (We were there on the way somewhere else, and not to tour Branson). The pool was adequate, and the kids had a great time in it (as did we the parents, because it was so hot that week!). WiFi was OK. Hookups fine. Water good. Pull-through was a bit narrow to get my 27' travel trailer in. Nice bushes and trees between sites, though. Barbeques only as I recall, but didn't really look to see if fire rings because it was too hot! No garbage pickup, but it is a small park, so easy to hoof it to the clubhouse dumpster. It was a nice little park, and we would be happy to camp there again. (In fact our son played with a kiddo there with grandparents who camp there every summer.) Just wish they had more food and RV stuff in the small camp store. Very nice atmosphere though.

We spent 3 nights here in June, as a base to tour around St. Louis. Very nice, clean, quiet campground, except that trains go by often. But we like trains, so didn't bother us a bit! The campsite was pretty level, had shade, and not too close to the neighbors. Best camp store of the RV parks we visited in Missouri. Good pool. I don't recall the playground or mini-golf. The WiFi was a little spotty. Lost connection occasionally. It is on a pretty creek. The final morning we went there and explored, which was great with my kids. Minnows, tadpoles, and an old Osage flint hide-scraper were all found. GPS found it easily (Garmin). All-in-all, I would definitely camp here again if in the area.

Very quiet and peaceful old county orphanage grounds turned into RV park. However, there was no store or Wi-Fi or clubhouse to speak of. Only S'mores and firewood sold at the registration office. If you are entirely self-sufficient and don't need anything but peace and quiet, then this is a great, if somewhat high-priced, place to camp. The grounds are very well kept, and the spaces are nicely wide so you don't hear your neighbors. Plenty of level spaces. All but 3 have full hookups. (3 are electric/water only). Not very high water pressure, but adequate. Good fire holes, though we didn't get to try ours out because it was unusually windy. An especially nice miniature golf course with very nicely planted flowers that they really work on for a miniature golf tournament in the summer. I had thought there would be Wi-Fi. If there was, the nice but uninformed girl at the Reg desk didn't know how to tell campers to access it. My laptop read "no wireless network signals" and I usually can pick up very well. The staff are not intrusive at all. In fact, they were hardly there at all! (But we were late getting in, and there was a Norwegian festival in town this weekend.) Overall, a nice place to camp but a little pricy for lack of Wi-Fi and store. (I had to go all the way to Madison to get a potable water hose).
