We stayed here in 2011 and loved it. Our campsite was right next to the sand dune #H7. Friendly folks all thru the park. Spring breakers were coming in on March 8th so we left. It was gonna be getting busy. Loved this place and will recommend it to others. We would definitely stay here again. (The rate reflects a 30 night stay of $580.00)

The only reason this received an 8 was because it did not have pull thru's. All cement, extra parking for your automobile, street lights, down right friendly Seniors running the place. Would recommend this place. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. (We never give a 10, so a 9 would be our top for any campground.)

You have to be traveling South to enter this park. All grass site and when it rains, well, good luck. I sank 8 inches and left ruts about 30 ft trying to get out of site #2. We finally stayed in #E4. This park is more or less an open acreage with some hook-ups. Not very professional at all; campground or manager. A one night shot and that's all it was worth. Would not recommend this park and we will not stay here again.

We made a reservation over the phone about a week before we arrived. When we arrived 12:30pm on a Monday, there was no one in the office. A sign on the door said to "Use the Nighttime Check-in" rules. I found an envelope and followed it's instructions and found a pretty decent site. Gravel, level, no trees, FHU. TV Cable good, WiFi good (although could never get my phone to connect but laptop was OK. The check in paper said their office hours were 1 - 7pm. At 1:30 I filled out the papers and returned to the office. Still no one. I left the papers in the drop box. Never saw any campground personnel. There were no instructions about check in/check out times, instructions for trash, etc. This campground has the potential to be a very good campground but needs better management and communications. Noise from I-30 was a little loud at times, and there was a faint odor of sewage in the air. I marked the veteran rate. I gave this Campground a 5 because of the lack of communications and lack of any one operating the park. Would probably recommend this place to others, and we would stay here again if in the area (knowing the lack of communications.)

In response to a previous review. Yes, highway 376 is very steep (19% grade), but it does not lead into this campground. Highway 376 comes out of Branson up the side of a mountain to highway 265 and from there it goes to other campgrounds and also many other places. I would avoid highway 376, if I were in an RV, pulling or otherwise. Branson View Campground is built on the top and the side of a mountain and has, in my opinion, the best view of Branson you can find. Their brochure tells you of the driving and walking conditions in the park. After all, you are in the hills and mountains of the Ozarks, so different driving conditions will and do exist, you're not in Kansas, Toto. We have stayed at this campground many times and keep coming back and will continue to. The restrooms have recently been upgraded, water supply has a new filtration system, and the managers are very nice as well as informative and helpful. I only gave this park a "9" rating as I don't give 10's out very often.

GPS would not accept the campgrounds address, but we knew it was in the area so we watched for the KOA signs on I-44. Found it easy enough. Managers were very nice and guided us right to our site which was very long and accommodated our 34ft Class A and toad with room to spare. There is no cable TV but with our antenna we found 17 local stations. WiFi is excellent. Six Flags is almost straight across the interstate and very accessible. Lots of authentic train sounds, almost too much. Level gravel sites. We would stay here again.

Easy to get to off I-70. We like KOA's because you can almost always count on them to have very clean restrooms and camping areas. This park was no exception. Nice store. When I checked in, they asked me if I had a pet and I said yes, a cat. They immediately gave me a small bag of "kitty treat" and then they gave me a sack with two chocolate chip cookies. They were warm and fresh - excellent. Setup was fast and easy. Cable TV was great, Wi-Fi was great. They have a cafe on site called "The Krossroads Cafe". Good food, good prices, and a very warm fireplace. Open for breakfast and late for supper. They also had propane available. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay here.

Easy to find off I-75. Rather tight turn into campground and when you come out of the park the view to your right is very compromised. The manager was very nice and friendly. Cable TV great, Wi-Fi great. Water was turned off for the season, but I was told this when I called a week earlier so was not surprised when I got there. We were visiting an Aquarium in Newport so we stayed for 2 nights. It is a 30 minute drive to Cincinnati. Great park and friendly folks. Rate reflects Good Sam. We will stay here again if in the area.

Overnighter is all it's worth. It's a place to sleep. Easy to find, but tight turns into and out of the park. Workamper manager was nice enough, even when she charged my credit card twice. The park was advertised as "Cable TV & Wi-Fi". There is no cable TV. It is either your satellite or antenna and the local TV channels come from Chattanooga, some 60 miles away. There are only 3 stations - all PBS. The Wi-Fi is from HughesNet and not usable because it is slower than dial up. Sites were gravel and not very level. Lots of full time locals. Water was turned off and no rate adjustment. I gave this place a 2 simply because it was a place to stay off the road, and the manager was nice. Rate reflects Good Sam.

Easy to get to off I-75. Very nice well kept park. Checked in and the manager was one of the nicest guys I have met in a long time. Very knowledgeable and friendly. He showed us on the map where we could park and gave us our choice of 5 different sites next to a very pretty lake. Set up was quick and easy and enjoyed the evening very much. We will stay here again if in the area. Rate reflects Good Sam.

Had read a comment about this park being "New" so thought we would try it. Am I ever glad we did. The managers are the nicest folks you would ever want to meet. They will guide you to your site and, if you want, will help you hook up. FHU's. The park is about a year old and they are still upgrading it. HUGE campground, Lots of large trees, lots of space between sites, fire rings, Direct TV cable connection free, WIFI is free and it works. They will give you a code to enter on your computer. If you need more than one computer code, just ask, they'll gladly give you as many as you need, we needed 5. . They will even supply wood for that "campfire" that you might want. Very easy in and out. Our GPS would not allow us to enter the full address of the park but the manager had told me that the park was "North" of Old Town on Hwy 349 on the East side of the hwy. We will definitely return here again.

Excellent Park! Small, located right "on the beach" of the Gulf of Mexico. Our campsite was facing the Gulf with a sand dune between us and the water. The sound of the surf crashing ashore was very calming, We were pulling a toad so the car dolly spent its vacation on the other side of the park. Good TV, the WI-FI was there but sometimes not very good at our site (as far as you could get away from the office). When we were leaving, the manager asked if he could go out and check our air pressure in the tires. Down right friendly folks at "On the Beach" RV Campground. We were here for two months with the fee figuring out to about $15 per night.

Easy pull in off Hwy 98 for our Class A towing a car. Very friendly lady in the office and very helpful. Gave us a waterfront site which meant we had to unhook the car. Still can't believe we are camped nose in to the gulf with the water 15 feet from us, for a measly $33. Sand pads with FHU. TV works with more channels than you can shake a stick at, and the WiFi comes and goes. Planned to stay for one night and are still here after 3 nights. Great little campground. We'll be back.

We have actually stayed at Navarre several times before. Arrived at 5:30pm and it was dark and raining. Manager met me at our RV (a Class A, towing a car), gave me our checkin papers and said we were in #82. Wish she or someone had guided us in as we had a very hard time finding the space. FHU's but slow account hard rain. Packed sand pad pull through. TV had lots of channels but once again WiFi was almost non-existent. Sites are rather close together which made it harder to pull in when you are towing a vehicle. Exit was very slow because of very narrow roads and other campers parking their cars next to the road. We will stay again sometime as we like this area.

Our second Jellystone park in as many nights, in a Class A towing a car. Lady at the office was very nice and knowledgeable. Quick checkin. She said if we didn't like the site she gave us, just pick one out: we did. Lots of rain had flooded several sites, so we moved down a couple. Cement pads. Pull through. No TV where we were and WiFi was non-existent. Next morning when we left, the heavy rains had flooded a lot of the rest of the campground. We liked the campground and would definitely stay again.

The entrance to the park is great, makes you think you're entering a amusement park or the like. The folks in the office were great and very knowledgeable. And, WOW, if you like camping in the woods, this is the place for you. Our campsite was down near the lake, back up in the trees. Pad was gravel dirt mix and somewhat level. No TV, not even over the air. WiFi was non-existent. Good thing we had a DVD player. Rained like crazy that night and getting out was a little slippery. We would consider staying here again. We camped in a Class A rig towing a car.

Some folks think it is hard to find the entrance to this park. Turn in at the Heartbreak Hotel sign and it will lead you straight to the park entrance. Real friendly folks at the office and very helpful. TV was over the air with several stations. Wi-Fi was marginal. It was just a short walk (city block or so) to the entrance of Graceland. Spent the whole day there. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here because Camping World finished repairs to our rig really late and the park has very easy access to I-44. Wide open gravel pad. TV, over the air, maybe 6 channels. Wi-Fi, but not very good even with us being in the second space from the office. The manager was a pleasant fellow but the cigarette smoke about did me in. Checkout time was "whenever you decide to leave", he said. We would stay here again.

Our second time to stay in this park. Both times we had scheduled appointments at Camping World. It's a quaint little park. It also has some tight turns in the park, both entering and exiting. TV is over the air with about 6 channels. Rate reflects a Good Sam discount. We'll stay again.

Park was hard to find and way off the beaten path. Most residents in the park look like they are permanent. Sites were gravel and unlevel. Pretty shoddy at the best. Only nice thing about the park was the manager. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

The campground was easily found with our GPS. Brochures proclaimed this park as the #1 rated RV Park in Hemet. (I wonder who voted)? Roads in the campground are plenty wide, but the Staff wants you to park within a certain distance of the curb (which puts some of the rigs really close to the road, thus making for narrow driving). When you park your rig, you have to put your wheel well on the "patio" to be sure your slides have room. Sites were a little close together, especially at the back of each site (my sewer connection/water connection was right under the slide of an adjacent 5th wheel). We paid $450 for a month plus a $100 deposit for the electric. I read the meter when I parked, so I would know what the actual reading was. When I checked out on Feb. 14, the manager said I owed them an extra $40 for electrical overage. They showed me the reading and their numbers did not coincide with mine. Since I did not take my reading to the manager when I parked, I couldn't argue. They charge .18 cents per Kwh. There are lots and lots of rules that either are or are not enforced (think it depends on who you are maybe). Also be aware of unwritten rules and how they enforce them. We found it kind of aggravating. Washers and dryers cost way too much, so we used a laundry elsewhere in town. The women's showers were ok. In the men's showers, out of the 3 only 1 worked and it had a 5 minute time limit, by which time the water hadn't even warmed up yet. Cable TV good, Wi-Fi had a strong signal but for some reason did not work well. I used my ATT Air Card instead. We probably wouldn't stay here again.

Easily found off I-10 using my GPS. Upon arriving at the Benson KOA, we were half way down the narrow dirt road leading into the campground when a car, truck and a pickup pulling a very large trailer tried coming out the road as we were going in. I had to actually stop my Class A as close as I could to a barb wire fence and wait for the vehicles to pass me. The car and truck made it fine but the pickup with the trailer knocked down several posts lining the drive. I suggested to the manager that they needed a wider entry/exit road. There is not room for two campers to pass! The manager was nice enough and showed me to our site. Level site, all dirt with a little gravel mixed in. A pull through so did not have to unhook the toad. Wi-Fi was very weak, used my ATT Air Card. Cable TV signal was weak but viewable. Would probably stay here again.

Found the park pretty easy off I-10. Good Sam rate $25. Park guide took me to our site and helped me back the rig in, then showed me the utilities and explained the site (where to park car etc) very helpful. Roads are gravel/dirt mix and tend to blow dust some when the wind blows. Park is on Main St and accessible to a lot that Quartzsite has to offer. On Wednesday night there was a music "Jam" session. Really enjoyed this. Would definitely stay here again.

It is pretty easy to get to the campground, just off I-10. Actually felt as if I was driving through a Mexican shanty town to get into the KOA. Once into the campground all was secure. The guy at the desk was pleasant enough but acted a little strange. He gave me a pull through (which I needed because I was towing a car). The lot was just long enough. I barely had enough sewer hose to reach the sewer connection had to use an extra 10 ft of water hose as well. I can't understand why some campgrounds have their utilities so spread out from each other. The sites were dirt and gravel. The cable TV worked great as well as the WIFI. We would stay here again.

Right off of I-10, EZ off-on. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Sites are gravel/dirt but plenty big enough for my 34ft motorhome and toad. NO CABLE, there is WI-FI but we used our AT&T Air Card. Supper at the Roadrunner BBQ and Cafe (on site) was good and the prices were very reasonable. Restrooms were very good. Would stay here again if in the area.

We arrived after office hours, so found the yellow box with all the information we needed. We chose non-reserved site #25. Found the site and began setting up, nearly finished when another camper came by and told me that he had pre-registered and that #25 was the site they gave him. We both had ##25. I offered to move but they said they would simply find an empty space. Park seems nice, large spaces, utilities close together (I like that) quiet. Heard just a little road noise from nearby I-10 but not enough to worry about. Would definitely stay here again.

We camped here on our way home from Colorado. The park is owned by the City of Oswego. Rustic setting, trees galore. Cost was $10. Very nice quiet place to spend the night. Park was patrolled by the Oswego City Police. Definitely would stay here again.

Easy access from I-35. Really nice park (yea, the roads are a little rough, not much) we camped in site #47 (cement pad) the pads are really nice but too short. In order to get the motorhome close to hookups, the front of the coach was 10 feet in front of the pad. Coach leveled out just fine though. Nice store, lots of accessories, Really friendly and helpful Camp Host. Would definitely stay here again.

Park is really easy access from I-44. If we hadn't listened to our GPS, we wouldn't have missed it. Park host was really nice and informative, Bought our new yearly KOA Kard and also received our discount. Site was long (accommodated our motorhome and toad. Would definitely stay here again.

Park is located in a woodsy setting, 3.5 miles east of Camping World (Strafford, MO) on the North Frontage road of I-44 (between exits 88 & 96). The lady who checked us in was very friendly. Roads into the park are very narrow as well as the sites. Barely got our 34ft Class A into our spot & really had to maneuver to get it out. Sewer hookups are really strange, they are slanted into the ground and almost makes it impossible to hookup your sewer hose (I never did get mine hooked up). No cable TV but you can pickup 6 analog channels and 6 digital channels with just your onboard interior cable wiring. Don't know if there was WIFI or not, we used our ATT wireless aircard and had exceptonal recepton. It was snowing when we arrived so couldn't tell exactly what our site is (concrete, gravel??) but it is pretty level. As I said, sites are small and they are very close together. Your neighbor's sewer hookup is almost at your front door. I-44 is about 200 feet south so we got some road noise. We probably wouldn't stay there again.

On their web page, this campground is rated by a reference to Good Sam (and others) so I made a false assumption that they were Good Sam. They are not! The campground is very easy to find and enter. Right off US 50/400. Has a really neat old west theme with old time western store fronts. Staff is friendly but really stress the campground rules (I kind of felt like a little kid being scolded). Our site (as well as the others) was gravel and pretty level. There was no view (zero, zip, nada), looked right into the side of a grassy hill. There were plenty of trees (no leaves, it's February). Wi-Fi worked great and there were 68 cable TV stations to choose from. Lots of highway noise, trucks, etc. Railroad was right by the highway and the train noise was pretty loud. Even with the noise and lack of a view, we would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

Palo Duro RV Park is just off I-27 in Canyon, TX., 17.5 miles south of Amarillo. When you check in, make sure you ask for the $5 off Internet special (tell them you saw it on their web site), they also give a Good Sam Discount. It cost us $20 total with tax. Each site is a pull through with 2 campers each (end to end). There are wide roads, long spaces but close together, lots of trees, NO TV but it is very satellite friendly. WIFI worked very well and is free. It looks as if there are several folks that are here on a "permanent" basis but their sites appear to be well kept. The park attendant was very friendly. Our site was only about 100 yards from I-27 so could hear traffic. Not bad but could tell there were folks traveling up and down the road. Be sure to visit Palo Duro Canyon while you are in the area. We would probably stay here again if we were in the area.

It has easy access from I-40, Exit 143 (west of OKC). It is nice big open campground with lots of trees. We had to share cable TV with site next to us (We were glad we had a 100ft cable or we wouldn't have had TV). Sites were pull through and all gravel and pretty much level. The staff was very friendly. We received the Good Sam rate. There was free coffee, muffins and newspaper in the morning. We looked forward to a nice hot shower. The shower rooms were very clean but the men's did not have any hot water and very little pressure. The wife said her water got warm after about 10 minutes but still had little pressure. There was a second building with showers and they worked fine. The park says they have WIFI but I haven't found it yet. We used our wireless 881 air card instead. We would probably stay here again if we were in the area.

It was a little confusing as to how to enter the park as there is no clearly marked entry (we went in the exit). The park is in a country setting with lots of trees. No sites have concrete pads (or gravel for that matter), they are all grass/dirt. Park staff was a crusty friendly middle aged man. He showed us our site and explained the rules. The office reeked of cigarette smoke (he was smoking while checking us in). There were lots of permanent campers and a few really junk motor homes dotted the scenery. When I made the reservation over the phone (while in Duson, LA) I was assured they were full service. I specifically asked if there was cable TV and they assured me they were "full hookup". There was no cable! My wife needed to do some laundry and found there was only one washer and one dryer working. The other washer and dryer was broken. The WIFI had an excellent signal (at least in site #1). We probably wouldn't stay here again.

Frog City RV Park!! What a name for an RV park. We have been looking forward to staying here for a couple of weeks. Right off the I-10. I knew the park was at exit 92 but as we exited the I-10 there was another sign for Frog City that caught my attention and made me think I had exited too soon. But it was for another Frog City attraction, kind of confusing. Stick with exit 92. The staff was very friendly and gave me the Good Sam discount even though I couldn't find my Good Sam card. Their guide lead me right to my reserved space and showed me the hookups. No trees. The site was plenty big enough for my 34 ft motorhome, no cement pads but compacted gravel and rock. We asked the lady in the office about someplace to buy some supplies within walking distance and she told us of a C-store a couple of blocks away then proceeded to take us there in her own vehicle (we do not have a toad). Very much appreciated. Heard a train once or twice but not much noise from the interstate. Easy in, easy out. Very nice park and we will stay here again when we're in the area.

Thought this to be a really nice park and looked forward to staying here for several weeks. Reserved in advance. Roads in the park are very narrow, cars and trucks parked at sites were partially blocking roads. Very very pricey. Paid $57 for a site 4 spaces from the waterfront, only to have 3 other MH's (which paid $65 and up) move in between us and the water. Blocked the entire view. The view was great when I had one. The white sandy man made beach was little but adequate. Heard noises each night (we stayed for two nights) sounded like someone trying to get into our basement compartments. Each time I went out there was no one there. Very annoying and aggravating as this kept going on for several hours. Finally decided to sit outside until I could figure out what it was. Did I mention the three airbases in the vicinity? War games, night maneuvers , etc etc. It seems as if jet fighters from one or maybe all of the airbases were in full combat mode. Canon fire and bombs were plentiful and noisy! No one mentioned this disturbance in their reviews. I asked the park staff about the night noises and they said it happens quite often. Because of the narrow roads, night noises and high prices I could only manage a 6 for this park. We might consider staying here again, maybe!

Nice Park!! Pronounced "O Clock Nee". The Park attendant, David, was very knowledgeable and nice. As in other reviews, the road in the campground is sand and very narrow. Our 34' Class A made it with no trouble, trees close on both sides. Our site, #24 was cement pad and very near the restrooms. Pad was plenty long and wide enough but negotiating the trees into the space took some time. My wife and I loved the trees and foliage. Restrooms were very clean (a little cool) and well maintained. We will return to this campground.

We love Branson View! It's close to Branson but away from all the traffic congestion. The sites are gravel and/or cement and level. The park is on top of a mountain and has an excellent view of Branson (hence its name). All sites have picnic tables, and most have grills. The restrooms/showers are very clean and well maintained. The staff is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Want to take in a show? The staff will have lots of suggestions. There are two excellent viewing decks that give you a spectacular view of Branson. Some of the sites could be a little hard to navigate due to the fact that the sites are tiered on the side of the mountain. All sites are pretty level. We are work campers at a nearby theme park and camp here year round. We checked out a lot of other parks and none came close to the Branson View.

The park is right beside the Interstate. When we pulled off the Interstate we drove right by the little Good Sam RV park sign and wound up on the north outskirts of the town. Finally got turned around and drove back into town and stopped at a gas station for directions to the park. The gas station employee pointed out the little (12" x 12") sign. Arriving finally at the park (in the dark) we setup at the site we were assigned (we thought) and were anxious to hookup and watch some TV. Only after everything was hooked up, did we realize we had setup on the wrong site, NO TV. Other than that the park employees were super friendly and very helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

Had no problem finding the park with help from my Garmin GPS. Road into the park was a little rough (but understandable due to the area being flooded earlier this year). Pulled into the campground around 6:00 pm and setup in the dark. The moonlight on the Mississippi River was beautiful and we could hear the water flowing down the river. (Campsite was only 20 or 30 feet from the river). Saw many many Barges going up and down the river. Pretty nice. We really enjoyed ourselves. The view of Memphis at night was pretty awesome also.

Had a blowout on the right front tire of our Motorhome while in route to Memphis. By the time it was changed (thanks to Good Sam ERS) we were forced to find the next available RV park. Whispering Pines was only a mile or two down the road and was a welcome sight. The lady that checked us in was very nice and guided us to our site. We hooked up the utilities and then found out that the water faucet had (at one time or another) frozen and split. We used our on board water supply that night. Left early the next morning and could not raise anyone at the office so left note concerning the water situation. Overall, we were pleased with the campground (except for the water).
