Beautiful and quiet

This campsite is beautiful. Loop B is much quieter with fewer guests. Loop A is a little more busy. Loop A: 2 smaller loops of campsites. A17,18,19 are very close to a little walkway that goes down to the lake. These spots are very hot and sunny in the morning, but shaded in the afternoon. Loop A has 1 set of nonflushable toilets that were surprisingly clean. Loop B: this is where the shower house and flushable toilets are. Showers were clean and water was hot. Showers had good water pressure. Loop B also has the playground which is right behind site B47. It’s a newer playground and all equipment was nicely maintained. There are no swings. Only complaint is that there are no benches or picnic tables at the playground so bring your camping chair if you plan to stay awhile. Further past Loop B the road turns to gravel and there is a parking lot with a walkway to the lake. This offers some small bluffs with deep water for jumping off. If you walk further around the corner to the right, it turns into a nicer “beach” style area with few rocks, although the mud can be a little thick after it rains. When we were here (July) the lake was pretty muddy but I’m not sure if it’s always that way or not. It was also pretty low, but still had plenty of fun and kayaked through all the little coves.

Awesome Corps park

Outstanding park! Huge sites, brand new poswer poles, shaded, amd well patrolled for am extra feeling of safety. We had a great weekend! In the A amd B loops, very minimal cell service and very little opportunity to stream on the TVs. I also couldn't get any over the air channels but we weren't there to watch TV!

Wonderful Camp Site

Just got back from 2 nights and could not be more pleased with the experience.  Very well layout grounds, well marked camp sites, excellence shower, flush toilets and washer/dryer available and all public areas were very clean.  I was at B lot Site 17 but would be better if water hookup was also at each site although public facet was close.  Besides that, it was a wonderful weekend.  Highly recommend this campground to anyone.

Nice updated campsites A Loop

Truman Lake was flooded three years ago, since then Sparrowfoot has been completely updated with new water and 110V/30A/50A hook-ups. It seems since the updates many of the sites would be considered Family Sites as many are adjoined. We are at A21 which is fine, but very close to the next site. However, A19 has a better lakeview. Our host Ron and Karen drove by to chat and said they'd move us to A-19 (which is already reserved). We may take them up on it if it doesn't effect the other campers. There is a "Cozy Corner" RV Park just outside the entrance to supposedly get supplies; although sign said OPEN no one was there. So the Host gave us firewood free and we gathered plenty of driftwood for our fires. Walmart and town is just a few minutes away. At 12:30am I can hear distance hiway traffic. But the site is dead quiet on a Wednesday night too. We checked the showers and toilet s, they were clean and had just been hosed down. Fishing from our site is abou 200'. A19 is about 100'. As I write this I can hear the coyotes coming in. Water pressure is great, electrical is fine. Dump station is about 3 minutes away. The coyotes are getting close so I'm wrapping up to go inside. We are SUPER stoked to go fishing in the morning and check out the Dam and area shoppes. We will definitely be back, only 90 min. drive from KC area.

Nice C.O.E. CG

Nice COE campground. Sites were spacious with 50 Amp hook ups. Some sites had been receantly redone, new grass, rock pads and elec pedestals. There was no CG host so the reason for a one star for service but park was quiet and had no problems. Clean rest rooms and showers. We were on our way to Branson so it was just a one night stop. We camped at Sparrowfoot in a Travel Trailer.12.00@ Night with America The Beautiful pass.
