Sites are level. Closer to water and shopping. Hosts are very friendly and this will be our go to spot when visiting Branson. The dog run was very clean and had agility bridge set up for exercise. Loved sitting in the docks and watching the water. Also, they have 2 trolley stops in park.
Stayed here as our last stop of the season to go see the Christmas lights at SDC. Have small kids so drove to SDC even tho they had shuttle because we didn’t want to have to wait if we were ready to leave as it only runs every several hours. The campgrounds proximity to the road was a big concern, for the kids and the traffic noise; and one of the grounds crew was very rude (must’ve been having a bad day). The number of trees was beautiful but made for a tight squeeze getting our rig (39’) in and out of the our spot. If the one across from us had been occupied I wouldn’t have been able to get in. The campground itself was nice tho and so was being close to SDC. Not sure if we’ll go back but enjoyed our time while there.
Honored access pass for National Parks, was able to drive in no reservations and get a site, blacktop, fire pit, very close together, shaded, near water but no swimming, the store had firewood but it was out on a pier for boat storage not easy access was wet and punky did not burn well. Not suppose to collect fire wood,, staff in store and office did there job but not very helpful. Not impressed will not go back.
I hesitate to do a great review on this campground as it is our favorite when we go to Branson. Now it's a little on the used side and it looks as old as it is. However the staff are very friendly and it's quiet at night for being as close to Branson. They have full hookups and we have never had a problem with anything. The park is part of Escapees Campground system. If you don't know what that is just look them up. Membership is very reasonable and if you camp a lot and use their campgrounds it will pay for itself after three or four days stay. If you stay there you are 5 minutes from College of The Ozarks. Take the self driving tour and get a reservation for the Sunday Brunch. WOW!!! If you have never heard of The College of the Ozarks look it up. It is a phenomenal story.
This is the best disconnect from the world campground. During peak Buffalo float season, arrive early as they are first come, first serve. The middle campsites aren’t my favorite but arent bad sites. River access. Showers are not available at the campground. There is a private outfitter at the top of the hill that offers pay showers. Speaking of the “hill”, its a steep road down i to the campground. Other reviewers will probably say you need a truck/suv to get into it. I got my compact car down just fine. Go slow in a lower gear. There are toilet facilities that are well kept. Water access available but no hookups. Very low cost too. Picnic tables, lantern post, and fire rings at each site. Absolutely no cell service. No one in our group with varying cell service providers had service.
