If you are looking for a nice free campground, this is another great place. Another gem I should really keep to myself. But, for those who are looking for peace and quiet and back to nature, again, this is it. This site wouldn't let me put in free, so I put in $1, but it costs nothing, nada, zip, zero dollars, just a little respect for nature. It offers nothing in the way of amenities. No water hookups, no electricity, no showers and only vault toilets. Though these are the cleanest vault toilets I've ever seen (I actually used them). There is potable water at the ranger station and store at the lake which you can use to fill your tanks. They also have a dump station at the same place, so you don't have to take that home or find a place to dump. The ranger station is also where you can rent boats for a couple bucks a day. You can't bring you own boat because they have a zebra muscle problem. They also give free tours of the fish hatchery, all you have to do is ask. Pretty darn cool stuff for a free campground from the Missouri Conservation Department. There are a ton of really nice sites and two years ago they closed down an entire section from non-use of the sites. The roads are paved on the north side of the lake, but gravel on the south side, but the roads and the sites are level and easy access for campers large and small. Many of the sites are shaded and water access is only a very short walk from the campsites. The only drawback is you have to bring your own fire ring, which has to have a bottom. Some people cut out the bottom of a barrel. We, went to Wal-Mart and bought a fire pit, which we also use at home, so it works perfectly. It is a conservation area, not a state park. But, it is again just fabulous for peace and quiet. We actually meet people who understand nature and just want a peaceful time fishing. - hello all

Great campground, clean and well maintained with grass between each site. We had Water, Electrical and Sewer. Some sites only have elect and water. - Cmorgan

Great campground, large paved sites, but with a slope on most sites. Fire ring and picnic table. The area has a beach, boat dock and marina. Great for hiking and biking. My only complaint is they could do a lot better with the bathrooms and showers. We plan to stay again. - mrweaw54

The sites are huge with lots of space around them. Unfortunately many of them are pretty unlevel which will be an issue for longer RVs. Our 50amp connection didn't work; but, after calling the office, they came out the next day to fix it. As others have mentioned, watch out for the ticks. Beautiful place overall! - Wandering With Us

Very busy campground - sites close together but level. QWe had an end site which was nice. Wifi was slow. Off the beaten path - down some country roads! Very nice staff. Kitchen. Store. Lots of things going on! Very family oriented! - CSM Carolyn

Very large park. Good amenities for kids. Very quiet and good shade. No WiFi at our site. Had to use our hotspot. Good cable 25 miles to Hannibal - DSK Texas

Very large park but mostly occupied by full time seasonal folks. We stayed in a pull thru at the back of the park. Internet was intermittent most of the time. The pool was decent but needed cleaned. Pad was concrete and level however the rest of the site that was gravel was not level. They had put down fresh gravel so we sunk in trying to get to the pad. - KSTraveler

Our family stays at this park at least once a year. Overall, it is a quiet park with many good sized sites that are wooded and shady. During holiday weekends, the campsites do fill up rapidly. A lot of boaters and fisherman use this park, as there is a boat launch onto the lake. The marina is a not located at this section of the park, but is about 20 min away. Note that on the holiday weekends there is quite a bit of traffic in the loop since many people do have boats with them. Mark Twain Lake has many trails to hike on of varying lengths.
The restrooms in the Badger Loop are older, but kept clean. However, some people do go use the newer facilities in one of the other loops. These newer facilities have individual showers that are roomier. - skeeter417

Mark Twain is pretty nice, has fairly large, private sites. They had recently had alot of rain, due to all the beautiful shade trees, it made for alot of mud. Our 20A service wasn't working, maintenance fixed the problem. We had a good time overall. - jstrom

I only rated this one a 7 because of what's not really in the State's control. Other than they have rangers come around who should enforce quiet hours and such, including stupidity. This park is a really, really nice park. I have been camping there since before the river was flooded into Mark Twain Lake and the old part of the campground is now under water. I spent my summers growing up in this area. Through the years, I have noticed how the crowd of people who camp here have changed. From respectful decent folks to a whole lot of rowdy and sometimes unruly people who do not watch their kids. The roads at any state park in Missouri are not big enough for 6 kids riding bicycles and campers as there are many hidden corners. The last time we camped at Mark Twain State Park, we not only had to deal with those bicycling kids screaming throughout the park the entire time, but an ongoing weekend party on one side of us and on the other some jerk who thought it was a wise idea to have four super bright halogen lights pointed at the sky all night long. Yeah, what a bright freaking idea, that shined in OUR camper for five straight days. And the bugs those light drew to our sites were awful. Not to mention, since the lights were left on both day and night and were on a stand about four foot off the ground, I kept fearing the wind would knock them over and catch the entire campground on fire. Halogens are not very practical OR smart to be using like this camping as they get very hot and are not stable on a four foot stand! Duh! Luckily, that did not happen. The worst part was we felt like we really couldn't say anything because the woman in the site was one of my son's teachers. They would have know who complained and he would have been punished in his grades. - hello all

Electric only sites in the area we were in. Place was more than half empty on a Thursday and we could reserve a place the night before. Typical COE backin site. Long and paved. One the lake but maybe 30 feet higher and no easy access. Lots of downed wood for a fire. - agesilaus

We overnighted here. Typical COE park, it was spacious, and from what little walking we did, it was clean. The COE volunteers were very friendly. We would definitely stay here again. - olcoon

Beautiful COE park about 20 minutes from Hannibal, MO. Stayed for about a week. We were in the "entrance" sites, on your way to the two major loops. Nicely screened from each other, easy to back in. Clean as a new penny. Almost level, needed one board. No water at space, but great electric. Water and dump about .1 mile. Rangers, as always at COE, were nice and friendly. Stopped in the "Project Office" (COE-speak for main office) and talked to several. Visitor's center very nice, lots of info, beautiful building. Several other COE campgrounds just on the other side of the dam. We'll be back for sure. - Dick Carlson

Horseflies are voracious! Otherwise it’s a nice quiet place. Clean and staff friendly. - Mark Arbogast

Another awesome COE campground. well maintained, clean and quiet. We were only here for two nights and it rained, thunder, lightning all night but got out and rode the bike anyway. Out of the way but that's why we like COE. - Cmorgan

We loved this campground although many of the sites on our loop were very unlevel sloping downhill. We were still able to manually level our auto-level 5th wheel, but all four tires were off the ground! We had a huge site with hardly any visibility to the next site because of the nice foliage screens and the huge spacing between almost every site. We could barely see the lake through the thick tree line behind our site, but could hear the boats out on the water. We had reserved a site in a section without sewer or water hookups, but we were able to stretch hoses over to the bath house to fill our water tank as we parked before realizing there was no water hookup. You are pretty far away from any stores, although we saw a couple of convenience type stores that sold beer, ice and bait. We didn't go in any of them though. We had great AT&T & Verizon service from our site, but not all sites in the park apparently do. We would definitely stay here again in the future and would even get our very unlevel site again because of the nice privacy. - LZee11

In a nutshell, stay away. If we could give this place a zero we would do so. The bathrooms are beyond filthy, mold appears to be growing on the shower stall benches, trash everywhere. The ground around our campsite was littered with cigarette butts. The buildings and all infrastructure look like they have had no maintenance in years. The "locals" or weekenders were very unfriendly; in fact scary.
It's very unfortunate as the place looks like it may have been decent at one point many years ago. We found the place in an older Good Sam book but the campground was no longer affiliated with Good Sam so there was no discount available.
If visiting the Hannibal area for the Mark Twain historical features find another campground for your stay. We booked two nights but left after staying only one night. - RalphB3

The lady checking us in was helpful, efficient and knowledgeable about the area.
The campground is old and dirty. Sites were not level, muddy and sewer connection broken.
Appears to be mostly full time residence that do not seem to take any pride in their site. Junk laying all around. Will not come back. - Stockmk

Worst campground ever! First of all, the campground is not marked, coming from Hannibal. We drove right past it. When we arrived, there is a window/ac unit boarded up with plywood. Not even new plywood, that looks like an accident or breakage recently happened, rotted on the bottom plywood. We arrived at 3pm the afternoon on a FRIDAY , and had to call a phone number listed on the door for help. When we finally arrived at our site and set up, the were so many dogs barking it sounded like we were at the humane society. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel, and had to park the truck on the gravel street, as there wasn't enough room to actually park at the site. We could not find the restaurant/lounge that was listed on the website. The was ice and firewood only at the "general store". The camper across from us, was a permanent site and the camper was finished off with plywood. Batting cages actually worked, but was really old. The kids tried to go to the store several times to get quarters, there wasn't anyone there. Pool is very small , kids didn't stay in it long, they said it smelled funny. My husband used the restroom once, said it smelled like urine and there was nothing in there to wash his hands with. We couldn't get out of there fast enough! - Hilgirl

This is a Park for permanent RV's for vacationers on lake near the Mississippi. water and electric only. No cable or wifi. There were only a few sites for Great River Road travelers. Good for visits to Hannibal, MO. - Alicenpete
Apr 2010 - $25.00
Rate is without sewer ( not available other than pumpout ) and not using Air. ( $3.00 more ) This is a seasonal park with mostly local trailers set up for the summer. Train is very loud and this is not on the river as it looks on the web site. Place needs a lot of work. We would never stay here again. - imperial

Rate is based on a monthly rate. This is a nice family park with mostly seasonal sites. The sites are level gravel sites. Management is very friendly. The drawback is the train tracks that pass near the park. There are no sewer hookups, but the owner provides a tank emptying service. - John P
