5 RV Parks near Alton, Missouri

We were camped in a free place in Mark Twain Forest and with no power the heat was brutal. I am on a small disability pension and was dead broke the day before I got paid. We counted up our change and was 2 bucks short. The owner kindly accepted that amount. The power for air conditioning was a huge relief as I was close to heat exhaustion. His kindness means a lot in my book. There is only 2 RV sites with full hookups. The other shaded area was for tents. Hookups were rough: one power box was taped together. For a rough place to stay close to the beautiful river and springs, it will do the trick. For looks I rate it a 3 but the people I'd rate a 10. - Goinmobile

We have used this camp for an overnight stop but will not use again. It is prone to flooding and a lack of maintenance of systems. This is not a good place to stay. - NE Travelers

This place was horrible! Not family friendly at all! First off, the road to the campground was two miles long and gravel; very difficult to drive on. There is a train that runs right by every hour, even at night! It was so difficult to sleep. The whole place had a "spring break" like feel to it. The bath houses were filthy and they don't turn on the water heaters until nightfall. We will not be returning! - tawanda

Was a long dusty road to get to the park (like more than a mile). The check in was fine, except the girl didn't know where the dump station was and put us in a site already occupied. A nice camper went up to the office for us so we didnt' have to drive round and round with the 5th wheel. Nice wide, long, level sites. Some are along the river, most all are in trees. Well kept park with a small store. Also have floats and canoes available for the river. Water pressure was good. 30 amp was weak. We could use the Verizon phone and aircard. Dish worked great. As mentioned before, the train goes through every few hours even at night. We had a strange problem with flies the first day. We had about 40 flies in the rig in the afternoon. For the fly fisherman this was a great spot to go 500 yards from the rig to the river. Fishing was good when kids are not in the water. We would certainly stay here again. - Awesome Navigator

We happened on to Riverside because it was the only RV campground open in the area in mid-March. There are a couple of important issues. First, they have a very strict rule of no pets, so if you have pets this CG is not for you. Second, it is two miles down a gravel road. It was not too rough when we went in, but it sure gets your rig dirty. If it were wet, it would not be so great. If those two issues are not obstacles for you, then the CG is pretty nice. The CG is right on the Spring River. It seems to cater mostly to fisher people and those floating the river. It is a large CG complete with a small store. In mid-March there were only about 10 other campers. The sites along the river are nicely spaced, but, if it were full, the spaces in the middle would be relatively close together. The spaces are long and fairly level with packed gravel. Some of the sites have shade but most are in the open. The sites have 30 amps and water but no sewer. This is a dump station. When we were there it was quiet, except for the train. If you love trains this CG is for you as they run right past and love to blow their whistle when going past. There were about three trains during the night. The staff was friendly and the CG is well kept. The bathhouse is rustic but clean and nice enough. The grass was well manicured. We would probably not stay here again as a quick overnight. - TheJim
