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. We camped at Harry S Truman State Park Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Town (Walmart, dollar store, fast food and other restaurants) are within a 10-minute drive into Warsaw. We rented a pontoon from Sterett Creek Marina (about 20 mins away) and it was very nice. Staff at Sterett Creek was great. However next time we will likely check out a marina that is closer to the campground - there is one right in Truman and others nearby.

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. We camped at Harry S Truman State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Harry S Truman State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is very nicely maintained State Park. There are several different areas to camp in and the one we picked was on the top of a hill. All of the sites had electricity and water. Our site had a large cleared area with picnic table. The lake is a short drive down a winding road. You are not able to see the lake from any of the campsites. There is a good centrally located dump and a fresh water fill station. There is a small playground. Each of the areas has their own camp host who can help you with where to camp. There are many trees and plenty of shade. We were not able to use our satellite dish. We would stay here again and for a longer period of time. We camped at Harry S Truman State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects a senior discount. Beautiful campground! The sites are nicely spaced and angled so that you have a nice view of the woods in most areas. Be sure you have a water bandit if you need to take on water as not all spigots have hose screw on capabilities! The water pressure seemed to be very high so getting wet while using a water bandit is likely. (Yes, I did!) The campground is only about 10 miles off Hwy. 65 but is very quiet. We enjoyed our one night stay and would definitely return for a longer visit. We camped at Harry S Truman State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Large paved back in sites. 30 amp electric, no water or sewer hookups. Can make online reservation at their website or find an available site by tags on post. If it's not reserved, there will be a tag on post showing how many days available. Camp host comes around and will register you. Playground, boat launch, swim areas and dump station available. Water is available but not on sites. Clean, quiet, with beautiful views of the Truman reservoir. Town is within 7 miles and a visitor center that is worth the stop. Clean, free showers with plenty of hot water. Would stay here again. We camped at Harry S Truman State Park Campground in a Motorhome.
