This campground was quiet and sites were well spaced. Sites seemed to all be very level in the LBLS section. Utilities worked well. Several bathhouse are located in the campground. The one next to our site was older but in working order and clean. Various employees patrolled the area and the entire campground is gated. There are several hiking trails through the sections. There didn't seem to be any lake access sites. Some smaller stores are located on Route "J" but you'll have to go to Hannibal for bigger stores. See the visitor center near the dam, Florida and Hannibal, and Monroe City. - Michaeljess

We stayed at site 114. I slopes a little from front to back but nothing our leveling system couldn't handle. Lots of space between sites, numerous shower & restroom buildings. - 2G's

Great campground on Mark Twain Lake. Early in the season, so a new portion was closed, but we had electric and a view of the lake. Very quiet and clean. Would definitely return. - Marsha D

Perfect for an overnight stop, pull through was level and hookups convenient to use. The highway can get noisy at times but the close distance to highway 61 for our trip south was what we wanted, didn't need a resort with high prices for the night. - Richard907

Small older campground, mainly full hookup, pull-thru sites. Some long-term campers In back of park. Restrooms clean and well-maintained as is laundry. Roads gravel. Appears to be owned and maintained by older couple. Little contact with owner after checking-in. Soft-serve ice cream available in office (not open most of the time). Sits between two roads with heavy traffic about 24/7. Little shade. Campground prices far more reasonable than in Hannibal. Would return. - grandma0942

I just stayed here for one overnight - but called the night before and they were almost full ... only one slot left for a 45 ft. MH. Very nice people in the office. They have a soft serve ice cream machine! Put-put golf area and a firepit area. Did not use any of the facilities as it was a quick in and out, but would stay here again. I didn't bring a tow vehicle, but if I did, yes, you would need to unhook and then could probably park it in front of the motorhome. - Enterprise Adventurer

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

I have no idea why this campground has never been reviewed. We stayed here for two nights. Its pretty standard COE except there are so many trees it makes maneuvering a little difficult. The roads are newly paved but a little narrow, especially for a big rig. There are a lot of equestrians here and the campground is near Mark Twain Lake. Very peaceful and quiet. We'd stay here again. - Soos

We had a great time at Mark Twain Landing. It's very family oriented. There were many activities for my toddler to participate in. We didn't get a chance to go to the water park but we plan on coming back very soon and will check out the water park next time. There are lots of full-timers living here. They're all friendly and there's a real sense of community. Besides the RV spaces, there's tent camping, condos, cabins and more. We were given a schedule of weekend activities when we checked in. There were kids crafts, water wars trolley rides, kid and adult karaoke, outdoor kids movies and more. There's also a great play place for the kids. The staff was very helpful. The restaurant is nice but has a very basic menu. Some of the facilities are dated, but they're working on all of that. For instance, there's a mini-golf course on site that's a little neglected. The upside is they let you play for free, at least until they get it refurbished. There's also a defunct go-cart track on site. I don't know if there are plans to ever use it again. We really did have a great time and my SO mentioned it would be a great place to head "every weekend" if we started keeping the camper somewhere besides home. Golf carts are available for rental. We didn't need one. Our site (102) was fine but nothing special. Nice level concrete pad though. The only weirdness about the site was sharing the water connection with my neighbor. Bring lots of hose. The sewer is the screw in type, make sure you have an adapter. Besides the water, all hookups were at the very back of the site. My 25ft coax cable wasn't long enough. Lots of shade on most sites. Be careful driving through, there are tons of kids on bikes, people walking and golf-carts on the streets. - BigChris618

The price posted is a PA price per night. We stayed 2 nights. I would have given a 10 except that the site we were in had serious leveling issues. Most in the row did. Seems PA people are put in the very very last row. There are lots of sites and a large variety of cabins in variety of sizes. Nice park with allow you to stay Sunday-Thursday on Passport America 50% off. Nice park. Well kept, nice grass, tables, patios and firepits. If you have kiddies, you can buy them a combo pass to the big waterpark they also own. There theme is turtles. Cute turtle figures all around. We had no problem with Sat dish. We didn't use their wifi. Give you codes for 2 units only. Shared water line...so for one it is on drivers side and for other it is on passenger side. Makes inconvenient for the person with passenger side to run long line and it sets near front of RV. Would stay again if in area. - Victoria Grace

We got here later in the day and our directions were waiting for us. Had trouble with the wifi but they finally got it straightened out. - chucky2

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

We really liked this campground with it's many great, wooded, paved sites with nice separation. This corps facility is on Mark Twain Lake, but none of the sites are actually on the lake. A few overlook the water down below but most are in the woods. The roads are excellent and the individual sites are a mixture of electric only and full hookups. I think all the sites offer up to 50 amp service. The sites are long and pretty level side to side but most have a slope front to back. To get level our 5th wheel was "kneeling down" significantly. In the Eastern campground my Verizon 4G signal was very good. There are a few things you might want to know. First this campground is out in the boonies. Once you leave Morgan City you are still about 15 miles out into the country to the campground, much of that on smooth, but speed limited roads. It is around 45 minutes to the closest Walmart in Hannibal. Second, we battled both ticks and swarming gnats. Third, if you want satellite, pick your campsite carefully. Generally, you want one on the north side of a road. Those on the west side of a road would be especially blocked from having an eye to the sky. - nazpaz

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

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
