Great landscaping, shaded, very inviting campground about 8 1/2 miles south east of Warsaw, MO. Mostly full time campers with some spaces for over nighters. Steep hill takes you down to Lake of the Ozarks, where you can launch a boat or fish off the docks. Can even tent camp down there. Odd electrical policy -- charges $3.00 per 12 hours if you use a/c, and you are on the honor system. Campground owners also have strict policy against swimming in the pool if you have been swimming in the lake. Out of the way -- make sure you bring what you need because there is no store on site or in the immediate area. Pet Friendly. - Dan64078

This is a great little park. The sites are all gravel and quite tight but everything is clean and neat. While it is not a vacation spot/resort, if you need to stay in Sedalia for a few nights this is a nice park to do that. It is convenient to everything. Plenty of lawn available to play games or relax. You can hear the road noise but it is not terrible because the park is back from the road at least 200'. There was enough room for our 41' motorhome but our toad had to be parked on the lawn across from the site which was no issue. The owner bought this park in Jan 2018. She is wonderful to deal with in person, although getting return calls is difficult. The wifi is excellent if you have a booster. If not it doesn't seem to work for most people because the originating signal is too far from most of the sites. We had fair T-Mobile cell signal. The owner was very accommodating, we needed packages delivered, no problem she said. We were taking the RV Driving School, the instructor asked her if we could use the park to practice parking maneuvers, again, no problem! She is so sweet and easy to deal with. The only problem you may have is trying to turn into the park if you're heading south on Rt65, also called S. Limit Ave. The turn in has curbs and is small. If you plan ahead and move somewhat into the left lane (four lane rd) it is completely doable. We are 60' long with our toad and did not hit either curb coming in. If you think it's going to be a challenge just go past it, turn around and enter while heading north, no problem from the middle turning lane. We'd definitely recommend this park. - Dave and Deb

This campground is a 55+ park and you should call to reserve a site. The owners are semi-retired and may not be at the campground. The correct phone number is 660-596-1174.
The campground has about 28 sites, most sites have 30 amps, and the rest have 50 amp electrical services. The voltage was good - hovering around 120 volts. That might change if the park was filled. Picnic tables are available.
The electrical box, water and sewer are all located in the middle of the site. The sewer was in between the electrical box and water spigot. There is a bathroom with 3 showers per gender. There is also a laundry room, but it was not open during our stay.
The campground was basically an open area with a few trees on crushed stones. The sites were very level. Most of the sites are back-ins but there are a few pull-thru's. All of the sites can accommodate a large rig.
The entry way to the park is very narrow; you will need to swing wide in order to clear the curbs.
WiFi was available and the reception was good. Verizon air card and cell phone reception was also good. Cable TV was not available
The campground is very quiet at night. We would definitely come back if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

It was a 10 night stay and was nice quiet camp site. We will go back again 1 or 2 times in 2018. - edsharon2017

We had 3 RV campers and stayed two nights over the weekend. The campground was very clean, as was the public restroom/shower house. We used one pull-through space and two back-up spaces. There was plenty of room. We have stayed here several times and have had a great time each time. The owners and employees are very friendly and helpful.
The only negative thing I find is they do not take reservations. We arrived early so we could get 3 sites and had to put our camper in one space, our boat in one space and our pickup in another. We will come here again. - Diana A

OLD park with new owners who are attempting to make some renovations. Very few sites for big rigs. We had electrical problem at our site. After six workers spent several hours attempting to fix it (unsuccessfully), we were moved to a different site. One of the owners was rather rude and unconcerned about the situation; the other was more willing to try to find a solution. Given the one owner's attitude, the electrical problems, and lack of big rig sites, I would not stay here again. - Heart

Beautiful setting right on Truman lake. Very quite and dark at night so the night sky can be enjoyed. There is a boat ramp, beach and some new sites that have water. The woods are beautiful and the morning sunrises breathtaking. - PhredFromIL

It had rained in the days before arrival, so the parking was sketchy. Good full hookup service. - gorp

We were here for a rally which included cost of sites so do not know the rates. Sites are on grass with gravel roads. Roads are fairly narrow. Our site had full hookups and 50 amp service. Four sites hooked up to a central water, electric, and sewer service, so you will need a long sewer hose. Site was level but would be muddy with significant rain. We had a short shower and sites and roads were fine. If in Sedalia on our own, we would probably seek other places to stay. - starwind

This fairgrounds public campground is open year round 24 hrs on a first come basis. Make sure you check the calendar for any RV rallies or the state fair.

Sites are grass and can get muddy if it rains causing your RV to get stuck. Roads are gravel. Dump station, restrooms with showers are available. No WiFi or laundry. We were here for a rally otherwise there is not much to do. - mohocamper

This is a nice very quiet place right off the lake. There are full hookup spots, that appear to be taken by long term residents. There are about 8-10 pull through spots close together surround by trees as well as tent camp sites. You can bank fish the either LARGE Pond or small lake just feet away. There is a large very clean bathroom and shower house. Only thing missing is hand soap. There is Delightful Donut Shop, Dollar General, Country Mary, and a gas station just a short walk away. Wouldn't be able to tell it with how quiet the camp park is! The biggest letdown is lack of fire rings. Kids and wife were bummed out not being able to roast marshmellows for s'mores. A few sites had fire rings but most didn't. I would definitely stay again. Just need to bring something to build a small campfire in. - Kenny_Crystal

A quiet little campground. Outside loop had mostly long term but the sites were kept very clean. No accumulations of "stuff" like you see in so many long term spaces. Inside loop had short term and overnight. A little tight to put our 36 foot fifth wheel in, but we managed it with a few backup and adjustments. Space was shaded and fairly level. Only took one block to level. Site had 30 amp, water, but no sewer for the short timers. Did have an easy to reach dump station. Spaces were pretty close together but there were lots of trees, so we were shaded 80% of the time. No cable and trees blocked satellite, but got several local channels, but no ABC, NBC, etc. We were literally right on the lake. My husband had a great time fishing--caught several catfish (could have been keepers), and several carp. Threw them all back, but fun to catch. It had rained a lot the previous few days, so the grass needed mowing, but the last day we were there they were busy getting it groomed again. Bathrooms were older but clean. Good places to walk dog, but beware--out in treed area (next to campsite), there was some poison ivy growing. Owners were super nice and made us feel welcome. This is a cash only campground. All people we met (including campers) were friendly. Would definitely stay here again. This is not your resort style campground with pool, table games, entertainment, etc. But it is a nice place to kick back and relax. - DKA345

Six of us with motorhomes, 5th wheels and on travel trailer spent one night on the way to The Escapade at Sedalia, MO. Lots of trees but no problems other than lack of satellite service. Deer Rest Camp Park is a quiet secluded, urban lakeside campground which is conveniently located in the Warsaw, Truman Lake and Western Lake of the Ozark areas. Good paved access rd. From Jct of US-65 & Hwy 7 (N of town), S 0.75 mi on US-65 to Warsaw exit (E Main), W 0.3 mi to Hackberry Dr, 0.1 mi (R). Good gravel interior roads. This park disappeared from major guides around 2000. We would use it again for a one or two night stop. No evidence of long term people. Friendly staff. - johnwadams

We stayed in the Buck Ridge section (campsite 112) over Memorial weekend, and it was great. Sites are very spacious and private. Pad was good size, asphalt and pretty level. The campground has a beautiful canopy of trees, allowing for lots of shade over sites. You get a picnic table and fire pit with each site. Unfortunately, there isn't water available at each site, but there was a spigot a few sites down from us. Bathrooms were very clean, and our only complaint about them was lack of hot water. The hosts were gone all weekend which was frustrating, especially since there was no one there to enforce quiet hours. (We stay up pretty late, but I'm talking 1:00 AM and still lots of noise.) The trails are great - lots of animals and interesting plants/flowers to see. Swimming areas were closed, due to flooding, so can't review those. I would have liked to see a couple of fishing piers. Seems the only real fishing we could do was from a boat. On this holiday weekend, there were quite a few activities for the kids - lessons on mammals that live in the area, kite flying, bird feeder building, guided trail hikes, outdoor movie in the amphitheater, etc. they loved it! Overall, I would highly recommend this campground. We loved it and will definitely be back. - Letsgetitpoppin

This was a REALLY nice, clean state park--one of the best we've ever visited. The sites were well spaced and very private. The web site also gives good information on slideout restrictions based on trees and other vegetation. Pay attention to this, several of the sites would not have been able to accommodate our slideouts. We stayed in the Buck Ridge campground and it was well-suited to our 38 footer. The roads were also well maintained and made the sites easy to back into. The only negative about this state park is that it is quite a distance from the town of Warsaw and there is really not much to do in this park other than hike--there is a nice lake and beach, but no fishing pier (you must rent a boat to fish or go elsewhere.) If you are looking for peace, quiet and privacy, this is a terrific state park. If you are traveling with kids I'd go elsewhere or bring a boat. - MN Bound

Another great MO state park campground. The restrooms were dated but clean. Level blacktop sites with electric only were $21 per night. The area surrounding the campground is beautiful. We felt we were all alone as the sites are well spaced and there were not many campers there in September. - katinfoco

We came here because of the Passport America listing. As you drive in you see the monthly sites which don't look too bad but old. After having paid in cash we were directed to the overnight area which we would never have paid $18 for. It is an old mobile home park now rented to RVs. I am posting pictures because the rating sounds too bad to believe if you do not see for yourself. It does have enough power to operate your air conditioners and free Wifi. - RV Camper1

Stayed here for 3 days to visit family. Very tight spaces, could not put awning out as it would have been over the road. A few junky permanent RVs, one whose awning was over the road a little so I will have to back out of my pull through when I leave. Stayed here one night 11 years ago, looks the same now as it did then. - Jweb98

Older park in a industrial section of town. Many rigs look like they have been here a while. Automobile wheel manufacturer close by so noisy 24 hours a day. We used earplugs. The owners are friendly. All pull thru sites. Easy access to Walmart and State Fair. Dead end road so no through traffic. Passport American rate is $18 which to me seems rather high for this campground. - fander

We stayed 3 nights in a site by the lake. The park is in need of updating and it appears some work is being started on restrooms. Long Shoal is directly across from the Long Shoal Marina. Stormy weather prevented us from doing a scheduled day of fishing with a guide, but we enjoy staying here and would stay again. The park is nicely treed. Access roads are acceptable but needing some work. - gbburgess

Although our site was a little close to our neighbors, that is not the norm for the campground. But it was well worth it to be on the water. The water view from our site was amazing. Will stay again. - CariD67

We stayed here 2 nights while fishing on Truman Lake and have stayed here in previous years. The National Parks Pass makes the stay quite economical. Our site was roomy widthwise, but almost short for a full-size motorhome. Level sites are an issue. The park is a Core of Engineers campground and nicely located on Truman Lake - also at same turn off Hwy 7 for Long Shoal Marina, where we met our fishing guide for the day. It does need more updating of restroom/shower building and grooming of campsites for modern vehicles. - gbburgess

We reserved ahead, site unseen, for a holiday weekend, and were required to pay for 3 days. They claimed to have sites for RVs up to 50', but getting into the sites without damaging your rig is almost impossible. There are low branches, sharp turns in the campground, no cell phone coverage, no satellite (lots of trees). The owners seemed nice enough, and when we requested a refund, they complied right away. It would have been a long weekend without phones, internet, or TV, and only 30 amp electric. - Like 2 Bike
