The campground consists of paved roads and gravel sites. Sites follow the contour of the land and can be very far from level side to side. Roads and sites are narrow making caution necessary on the long curvy entrance road and sharp turns into the sites. Our pull-through site had a picnic table, fire pit with adjustable cooking grate, and open view of the sky for good satellite reception. There is no AT&T data or phone service in the park or nearby communities. Bathrooms and showers were spacious and clean. - never settled

Great place to camp, we were there over a holiday weekend so it was a bit cramped but still a great time. The lake is really nice, we stayed in spot 05 and launched our kayaks from our spot and the fishing was great. Our camper was 12-15' off the waters edge. There is also a small dock behind spot 05 which is for public use; so be advised there will be foot traffic through your spot. Overall a great park; we will surely be back! - Campers4Life2016

Very nice park on the shores of Lake Darling. There are full hook-up sites ($14), electric sites($11), and no hook-up sites ($6). We stayed in an electric site; it had 50 amp service. The campground is on a hillside so most sites have a lake view. The campground is far enough from the highway so that highway noise is not heard. - MkvCjv

Love this little park! A few sites are big enough for big rigs and those are back-ins. Electrical and water. Well maintained by the Conservation Board. We could not get satellite due to the trees, but antenna worked. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. - The DnD Adventure

I stayed here to visit nearby Maharishi Vedic City. There are a lot of hiking and biking trails in and around the park. I have a 41' RV and easily backed into a level spot. I would stay here again. - Liz Carmel

Great little County park. We used the amenities; however, it was ideal for visiting Fairfield and the Maharishi University. Clean bathrooms and showers. We were blessed to get one of the first sites going into the park and on a curve so back-in with 38 ft RV was no problem. Multiple sites could have handled us. Be sure and check out the local stage theater. King Lear was "big city" quality for $20! - noelbob

We found this park when the one just off the freeway was full. Nice alternative. Very quiet small park. Owner lives on site and was always working around the place. There are some nice ponds on the property with expansive mowed lawns around them with places to walk dogs. Most of the back in sites have large shade trees. We used a more open pull through site. Didn't use the rest room/showers so can't comment on them. We did hear some train noise but not too bothersome. - Nautical Wheelers

Oakland Mills is a county park supervised by the local Conservation Department. The South Shore unit on on the banks of the Skunk River and does flood in some situations. Our campsite included electricity (30A) and a water hookup. Needed an extension cord to reach power outlet. We backed up to the river. Campsites were of a reasonable size, were clean from weeds and trash and at $15 per night for residents provide a good value. The campground was nearly full on the weekend and were quiet after dark. There were numerous people driving into the park to fish from an abandoned power dam and there is a nice walking path/bridge across the river with a very popular small restaurant just across the bridge. The park appeared to be safe and there were a number of young families spending the weekend at the park. We found the campground to be adequate for an overnight visit IF your unit is self-contained. The restrooms and shower house were some distance from the campsites, were open to the general public, and certainly weren't very well kept or well lit. We were in town for our Granddaughter's wedding for a 2-night stay and found the campground to be adequate for our purposes. The campground is just a few miles from intersection of US Route 34 and Route 218. Very convenient to get to. - MissouriBird

We stayed here in a tent on Labor day weekend. Park itself is just okay. They have a lot of level sites, but everything is grass. Our campsite was rutted from an RV that either got stuck in the mud, or just sank in. They only have electricity to each camp site, no dumps. The dump site looked like it would be a challenge to get into, if it was at all muddy.
There are a number of campfire rings around, but not one for each campsite. I saw a few picnic table spread around, but again, not one for each camp site.
The worst part of this camp ground is the bathrooms. They do have high iron in the water, but that is no excuse. It has been a long time since I stayed in a park with such terrible bathrooms. They were filthy dirty, and didn't look like they had any attention for quite some time. The bathrooms appeared to not have had any maintenance for a long time, and certainly no upgrades.
I also didn't see any staff around. That being said, I didn't spend much time at the park, so they could have been in later on.
We will not be staying here next year, if there are any other options available. - John316

Let me start out by saying this park does have WiFi, however you have to pay to use. There are 4 sites per electric pole but only room for 2 rigs. Parking is on grass, but fairly level. Dump station a different set-up, it's a pull in and back out. It's not user friendly. Stayed there with a club, as a single unit I would not return. - rving4fun

Clean and comfortable! Level pull-thru sites, good signage, friendly service. Very clean bath house. This campground was built for overnight stops, and we're glad we came here. A restful night! - Flying Mantis

We stayed at Crossroads overnight on our way to Branson. The park is just off the highway and very easy to get to. The office wasn't open on our arrival but they had our packet waiting for us and had no problems finding our site and getting set up. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only negative is that there is quite a bit of train traffic near by both day an night. - GordoKat

A nice overnight park, easy access. Close to Hyvee grocery store. Even though right off the highway, not too much noise. Occasional train. Sites were close. A good overnight stop. - rwthomasjrfamily

We enjoyed the campgrounds. A lot to do for the kids (and adults) including, basketball, tennis, volleyball, baseball and the city pool is right there! Shower house is clean. We also became aquainted with the local chicken, which we named Fred. Amish buggies are common. We got some "Squeaky Cheese" at the cheese factory which was fun. Would return to this campground. It is clean and well kept. Some campsites in the center were kind of close but others on the outer ring were quite spacious with lots of elbow room. - Pilot1769

This is a very clean park. Kalona has a great thing going for them. The city had a ball tournament Memorial weekend. We stayed there after it was finished and got a nice site. - 1dinky

We visited folks in the area. The sites are end-to-end sites with a back-in requirement if not the first to that lane. Very close to the other sites. Electric 30 amp service was good. A single dump station for the area, which is hard to find. It is located at the corner of the check-in podium. You check-in by filling out a form and putting money in a pole with a slot. Internet is available for a fee through the area provider. No cable. About a dozen air channels available. Good for kids, as it is right in a park. Playground near by. Casey's nearby with the best pizza from any gas station. Very narrow aisles and it will block your ground satellite dishes. Price is right for passing through town. Would stay again. - Redtime21
