What is it...

I would not suggest this place. We looked at the site and decided not somewhere we wanted to camp. The "lake" looked sickly, with brown foam looking stuff floating on top. The fish were alive and maybe it's a Missouri thing I'm not familiar with. The sites were primitive and maintained.
