This is a campground on a large lake with lots of lush green grass and huge shade trees. The large shaded sites have electric only, but potable water is available at the free, easy access dump station near the entry/exit. Most sites have a picnic table with a fire pit and some have a wind shelter surrounding the table. The camp host was super nice and helpful. The restrooms/showers were very clean. There is a boat ramp, but it was closed for repairs. The lake side picnic areas are great for bird watching and fishing. This park is between St. Joseph and Kansas City and within four miles of many restaurants and a WalMart in Atchison, Kansas We camped here in a fifth wheel over the Labor Day weekend and will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only 19 miles to St Joesph. Nice level sites, some paved most are not. Very easy access. We take our bikes and this was a nice area to bike. Check out the overview of the lake. Missouri State Parks are always nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a state park campground so the amenities are few. The restrooms on the whole are kept clean. I haven't used the showers. We stay here about one weekend a month during the summer months. Our cell phone (Verizon) does not have coverage here so it is a nice break and get away. Sprint and a couple of others do have reception. There is a lake within the park, but the swimming area is always closed due to the Canadian geese and what they leave behind (:. People still use it regardless of the closed signs, but after talking with the ranger, I would not. There is not a whole lot close by, but it is a nice place to chill out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The MO State Park web site indicates they offer a discount to disabled veterans (Access Pass) but the campground host didn't know anything about any discounts. The bathrooms need attention ASAP. Paint is peeling off the walls and ceilings, shower stalls and curtains have mold on them and there are spider webs everywhere. A lot of litter in the park. I picked up a shopping bag full of stuff in the sites around us. We would go back but use our trailer's facilities exclusively. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed this campground. Very large sites. Quiet and well maintained. The park rangers were very nice. The host was a couple who were very old. He was super nice she acted like she hated being there. Close to water to swim at sand beach area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It was exactly what we were looking for. The interior roads of the park were flat and paved for our 4 kids to ride their bikes. We never had to worry about them. Lots of trees, very pretty setting. The only bad thing was there is not water at the sites, only electricity, so a weekend is about all we can do. Over all, a very nice weekend. The walk to the lake is nice too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
