Nice enough campground with mostly unpaved sites. We moved from site 94 because a corner was washed out and the gravel mound was too uneven or small for our motorhome. Moved to site 76 which was level and paved. Wonderful bathhouse. 50 or more channels OTA. No sewers or water in sites. - Michaeljess

This was a great value for a state park. Some of the sites in the park have 50 amp service and are paved, but we were only able to get a site with 30 amp gravel site. Good amount of space between sites, but many tall trees prevented any satellite connection. No sewer at our site but there is a dump station available. We met a group of RV's there for a mini rally. The campground host was very helpful and friendly. We could only spend 2 days here at this time, but we would come back here. - SargeW

In additional to the nightly fee there was an $8.50 reservation fee since we booked on line!
This is a beautiful park, lots of large hardwood trees fill the park. We didn't even try to get Direct TV reception! But could get some TV over the antenna.
Only problem we had was with the configuration of our site. It was raised up from the normal forest floor in order to be somewhat level to the roadway. But that buildup was rather narrow for our 5th wheel. So when making reservation beware of that since there is somewhat of a description of the sites on the website. Once we got the rig centered on the site it made for tricky navigation from the truck to the steps of the RV. Don't let that warning keep you from this park, just fore warned is fore armed!
Dump site at entrance to the campground. No threaded tap for hooking up hose to use our Saniflush.
The park is very close to the Watkins Woolen Mill and Home. Beautiful state historic site. The campground is on the land of the former farm. Very interesting and a must see. Only $4.00 admission per person! - Rick & Karen

Was a Yogi bear park it's a old park needs lots of work.
I don't know if I'd stop again. - JustDon

Do NOT stay here. Hard to see entrance. You will pass it and have to drive to town to u-turn. The park "resort" is a scene out of Deliverance. The one-way steep rutty "road" has low hanging branches hitting our new rig. There are piles of rusted out metal, dumped cars, trailers, everywhere. Sites are no where near level. No WiFi. You can get TV here. Loud music after 10:00. No welcome package. Cash ONLY. Almost nonexistent water pressure. We would have left this horrible place but it was getting too late. Out of the 45+ RV parks we've stayed at, this was by far the worst. The name needs to change to GONE UNDER. - cmiller

We had a site on a hill, but was not able to level my trailer. Very old and dated park. Looked great on internet but doesn't live up to the hype. Very poorly maintained. Stayed here one night and would not return. - SammyToo

Beautiful area in hardwood forest with a small lake nearby. Very quiet with spacious sites. The hosts were very helpful. No wifi of course but Verizon worked fine. Only electric at each site but you can't beat the price. Missouri is leading the way too with a good recycling station. Brand new shower/restroom facility which was very nice. There is a dump station and a water fill station available. We'll be back. - Old Geezer

This park has the best showers I have ever use. - Joceil

Second time at this park. Some sites near the playground in area 4 are too close together but others in park nicely spaced. Heavily wooded with lots of hiking trails. Showers were great- lots of hot water, pressure and really clean! - NanciRV

Nice campground with some views of the lake. Variable shade. Lots of open grassland for exercising pets. Electric and water at each site. In the heat while we were there, it would have been welcome to have a more shaded site! Clean dump station with two dumping sites. - NebraskaNancy

Excellent campground and facilities. Perfect spot with easy access to the lake for swimming, boating or fishing. Have stayed there before and definitely will again! - Pittcrew

Sites are fairly level with utilities placed in the right place. This is a very busy campground on the weekends. We stayed in loop b which was just fine. We stayed here over Memorial Day and the noise level was non-existent. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. - illini777

The location is great, but it took some effort to find it. Better signs would help. The camp is old and the clientele seemed, uh, rustic. But our neighbors were quite friendly and helpful. We had no reservation, just drove in, and there were sites available. There was no staff on duty in the late afternoon, so we did the self-register. The neighbor shared the password for the wifi. Our electric box did not supply 30 Amp, but it did work with the 15-amp adapter, and we were only staying the one night. I would be willing to stay again for the convenience. And they are in the process of building a new bathhouse. - TexPaul

Campground is full of permanent residents in small, old run down campers, however the two on either side of us were very pleasant people. When we first rolled in I thought OMG are we going to be stabbed? Sites are extremely small with uneven dirt and rock surface. We never did get our RV completely level. Husband had to use extension to reach sewer. $29.95 with no discount is an outrageous amount to pay for a dump like this! Sites were so small there wasn't room to put our satellite dish out and if we would have put our awning out it may have hit the camper next to us. I would not recommend this park. As for views....there is a junkyard across the street with trees growing up through broken down tractors and rusty road equipment. - MaryIrish

The rate was $24.95 plus $2 for a third person. We paid with a check. To get there, you have to head for the Lowe's store, then turn left and go around the store to the back, to a driveway leading past a building with a construction office in it. Behind the construction office is the entrance to the campground. We almost thought it was just a house driveway, but it led to the campground. The place was almost or entirely full when we got there, but we had called ahead to reserve a spot. RVs were parked pretty close together. We were in a area for smaller RVs, but next to us was a big fifth wheel with the truck parked next to it. The rest rooms were old, but adequate, and were in the office building at the entrance to the park. The site was a back-in or pull-in site, was level, and had full connections. - vroecker

A wind swept gravel knoll behind a motel and truck stop with the associated noise. Pieces of re-bar stick up from broken concrete-watch out. If a Wal-Mart is a 3 this is a 2 for even worse security. I won't give it a 1 because I'm sure there is someplace worse and the management is at least neutral, not nasty. - raven

Beautifully maintained park. Camp host was very professional and welcoming. They take great care of this park. Expansive lawns and great views while traveling across the dam. Our pull thru site was just big enough to keep our tow vehicle hooked up if we needed to. The only downside of this stay was working through Roverpass to book the site. Not responsive and disconnected feel. We needed to cancel and re-book due to rv breakdown a week earlier. No response. Found out the cancellation policy later on & were told we had to contact the park directly for any re-book/re-use of fee paid. No contact info for park other than Roverpass. I would not recommend using Roverpass if there is a way to contact the park directly. We had specified certain site preferences which were ignored/not addressed - would have been nice to know that they had passed this info on to the camp host, which appeared was not the case. Our dissatisfaction is with Roverpass Reservation Service, not the campground or camp host. - LizzyWA

Only overnighted here. No signage directing you to the campground from County Rd DD, so be careful or you'll have to turn around. Park seems to have been built for smaller coaches, despite their reservation system accepting big rigs. The drive thru sites are short and built with a bend in them. I think this place is overpriced and I would not return. - TH travelers

Summer 2018, if coming in from US-169 to DD, the town is a mess of road construction. You will loop around on F and cross the dam before getting to CG. We stayed 1 night and were assigned a partly shaded pull thru with 50 amps. Nice level site on the outside of loop. Not the best of values given the location. Sites vary a lot here, but the host is pretty good about site assignment. OTA TV and Verizon broadband were both good. - Bob and Inga

This is a new park. We have stayed 2 times. Very nice park and a very nice and helpful owner manager. It opened in 2018 and we like and plan to return. - Seemore

This is a small park but very nice park. it is in the city but very rural like setting. It is located near a creek and surrounded by grass. The owner is very nice and takes very good care of the park. All the services are good and well located. Most of the sites are back-in but a few pull throughs. When in the area we would stay here again. - JDR

Great little park! Spent 6 nights, met friends to have some laughing, conversation & eating! The owner goes above and beyond on making sure ever rig that parks was set up & satisfied. There had been several inches of rain a few days earlier. He provided pads for our jacks. Loved the area. My friend & I are quilters and so enjoyed all 12 quilt shops in Hamilton. Did day trips to Jamesport, Amish community & St. Joseph. Would go back! - Long01
