Great Camping

Awesome lake, fishing is decent, the food at the Marina is great

Best campground on the Elk

We love camping at Two Sons. The owners are great people and run a really nice place. The sites are all grass pads and fairly large, with several right on the water. Electric/water only, so the one drawback is no sewer connections. You’ll have to use the onsite dump station. Very large gravel bar for relaxing on, several nice floats that end right at the campground.

Great place

Our first trip there was great! You are not able to make reservations BUT we set up a day early and had some great campsites! We were parked right on the water. They have concrete slabs with a great picnic table for each site. There is no sewer and 50 amp service is only on one side. We will definitely be spending more time here in the future!!!

Love the Falls

wonderful and helpful staff, clean bath houses, best location, and a roaring waterfall right in the campground. best place to camp by far in southern Missouri. highly recommend.

Better for teen/college aged partiers

Website said site we reserved was shady and grassy. Shade was ok but barely tufts of grass. Mostly sharp rocks/gravel/dirt which ended up tearing a hole in the bottom of our tarp footprint and tent. Worker there said those sites hadn’t been grassy for years and their website lied. :(

We stayed on the island (NOT the party side) which was very far from bathrooms. Ended up driving to them when we really had to go. Bathrooms themselves would be not bad if it wasn’t for drunken idiots leaving them a mess every night. We had one good neighbor. The others were busy blasting their music for all to hear and smoking weed for all to smell.

Not really a swimming beach area. Rocks are rather large and definitely not pea gravel or easy to walk on without twisting an ankle.

Store was nice. Overpriced but that’s to be expected. Seemed to be lots of security but guessing it’s cause of the partiers. Often the police/sheriff would patrol which was weird to see multiple times a day.

Not the best place to camp if rain/storms possible.

Definitely won’t be coming again or recommend for those seeking nature or with children.

Quiet fishing river with campground

Quite, picnic area, handicap accessible, boat ramp, playground, shaded, can fish both sides by standing on the bank, grassy areas, plenty of parking.

Nice quiet campground

We have stayed there about 6 times. Very quiet. Needs some renovations. Sites are not level and need either more gravel or concrete. Most of the sites are 30 amp and no dump station. Water and electric only.

Big rigs at some of the sites will have a problem. Renember this is a old campground. Fishing from the shore is great no boats. Adult children ( seniors) lol are there every day looking to catch dinner.

Fort Scott lake

Fort Scott Lake lake is tent camping only no animenities. ( no water, electric or bathrooms)

Decent but a little run down

Not a bad place to go camp and float. Bathrooms are a little run down and small, the sand volleyball court was ruined by the recent flooding and still has yet to be repaired. The tent camping was decently set up and good sized. Fit 2 8 person and 1 4 person tent on one site, with tons of room to spare. There is a wash station to wash any dishes you use in the little store at the front. Overall a good option for floating and camping.

A good waypoint stay in Southeast Kansas

Kamp Siesta is an establish campground in shade trees located adjacent to the fairgrounds and city park. The park is very nice and suitable for walking or biking and is on a bluff that overlooks the  Neosho River. The park includes a swimming pool, tennis courts, pavilions, and playgrounds. Amenities such as gas stations, hardware store, restaurants and groceries are all with a mile or two of the campground and well separated from them by quite neighborhoods.  While there is not a lot to do in Oswego itself, it is close to strip pits east of town  left over from coal mining that are good for fishing and there is a nice 9 hole golf course just west of town. There is also fishing down on the river. This river is known for it's large catfish.   The park is easy to access from the highway and plenty of room to maneuver larger rigs. I grew up in this area and know it well. The campground is quiet and well patrolled and at $10 a night it a cheap but relaxing place to stop and unwind. 

I believe it is open year round.

Very Nice Campground by the Neosho River

We have stayed here 3 times now as it is close to family. This is a very nice well maintained city park with campsites. It sits along the Neosho River but us elevated enough that it doesn’t flood. The electrical is recently updated with 50 and 30 amp service and last year the city installed a new bath house. There is a playground, pavilion and a ball field all within the park and the sites are generously spaced apart. Free WiFi is also provided. It’s a great deal at $15 a night.

Love it!!!

We absolutely love going here!

Wonderful place to visit

We have stayed here twice now, both times it was amazing. The on-site restaurant is a nice perk when you simply don’t want to cook. Small lake, but everything is clean and well maintained. Highly recommend.

Not so great anymore

Use to tent camp there 10 years ago or so. Went back to camp and pretty much caters to RVs now. Pretty much campers and fisherman now. Be careful does not say anywhere about reservations. We had been set up and kicking back for over 3 hours before the RUDEST ranger came and told us our site was reserved she just hadnt put up sign yet. Plenty of nicer places in the area, oh well used to enjoy it.

Love the drive-over waterfall

I went here as a teenager and fell in love. I will be back!

Great for single family camping trips!

I've went to Mutton Creek Marina to Times now to tent camp with friends and family. Our first group had five people and the second time we had four.. they're camping spots were right off the water so we could night fish or day fish, the kids could play in the lake all while hanging out at our campsite. The sites were shaded and whenever we were tired of eating camping food we could eat at the floating restaurant. The people at the marina were especially nice and informative. I love taking my family here and because of the cheap price, accessibility and closeness to other beaches we love such as Bona on Stockton Lake. We will be back and we highly recommend this place to others close to us. We don't want to tell everybody about it so it's not too commercialized ;)

Good for RVs not tent campers

I stayed at twin bridges this past weekend with my wife and our two dogs. Despite nice weather it was less than half full. There aee three distinct areas to camp. One on the east side of HW 137, one on the west side of HW 137, and one south of HW 60. The area south of HW 60 is camper pads and very busy as it is right at the boat ramp. This area also charges a premium rate for its location ($27 with water and electric hook ups). The west side of HW 137 has lake huts ($50-$60ish per night) as well as tent and RV sites. The east side of HW 137 has tent and RV sites as well as the visitor center. Tent sites are $14, with electric $18, and electric and water for $22. You can reserve RV sites online but not tent sites. This area is mostly for RVs. The tent sides are all on a hill side so you cant find flat sites to tent camp and tent camping is poorly marked. We did find an "unimproved camping area" presumably for tent camping but everyone with an RV at the nearby RV sites used it as boat trailer parking. There are bathhouse on each side of HW 137 and we found them to be pretty good for a campground. There is a RV dump station behind the visitor center ($5 to dump, free to camping guests, payable at visitor center or envelope station). If you get in late there are signs instructing you to pay at visitor center the next morning. However these must be old signs as there is an envelope station in front of the visitor center door to register and pay (didnt seem like the visitor center is open much). Noticed a lot of trash around camping area into the wooded area around it. Not a lot to do in the park but plenty of fish and boating areas nearby. Also there are camp grills at each RV/camp spot but no fire pits, although we did notice people have just built camp fires as they see fit (not sure of park policy on this). Overall its a decent enough campground if you are going to be spending all your time on the lake but wouldnt recommend for tent camping or longer RV stays if you are looking for hiking trails and more secluded relaxation.

Not in Kansas

Twin Bridges is actually located in North East Oklahoma, not in Kansas. Quite near both Kansas and Missouri. Beautiful sites, busy campground. Great facilities including showers and a playground. Office staff was rather rude, which is unusual in the camping industry, so maybe it was a bad weekend for them. Some sites are too close to the very busy road.

Great Escape

Small campground with the essentials, no frills. For those who like roughing it. Sign says to pay at the local police station- but the police do sometimes swing by and will collect your fee at the campground. I went in Sept-Oct of 2016 & really enjoyed myself. Was a very quiet spot to camp without many campers at the time. Across the river is a small playground in addition to the one at the campground. I am not sure if swimming is safe here, only saw people fishing with waders on.

Black out drunk loud people everywhere

Loud very drunk people are everywhere in the summer if that is your think you will love it. If not maybe try a weekday.

It’s a place to park

It is a very small place to park close to 69 highway and a public golf course.

Buffalo without fences

Prairie state park isn’t very large but it is nice to see somewhere dedicated to preserving the native grassland that the Midwest used to be covered with. The main draw for me other than it being close to where I live is that you get to be around buffalo with out fences. It is a surreal experience and worth the time to locate the herd in the park.

Nice price but bare bones.

This 10 spot campground has water and electric for $12 per night. Although it is a no frills campground it is across the street from a lengthy park with walking trails and a couple playgrounds as well as an active creek which advertises trout fishing on signs along the walking path. There is an extensive disc golf course within this park also.

There is an active train track nearby which produces some noise every once in a while, as does the main road between the camp area and the park. RV and hardside campers may not be bothered by the noise at all.

There is a dump station with fresh water for cleanout as you leave the campground as well as trash barrels throughout.

One drawback of this park is registration to stay here has to be done at city hall so if you are planning to arrive in town after city hall closes or on the weekend you may be unable to stay here as there is no drop box for site payment.

Overall this is a nice park for the low price.

Quiet, country, friendly, pets welcome

This is a great, friendly campground, off the highway about a mile, so no highway noise. Very pet friendly. Long wide sites that have grass, patios and picnic tables. Open year round!

Bison are plenty, no showersor flush toilets

If you are interested in bison sightings, this is the park for you. If you need water, supplies, shower or a flush toilet, skip this one. The tent sites are VERY primitive, but you drive up to your camp. You really have to go out of the way to get to this camp, but we were rewarded with a scary but fun close encounter with a lone bull bison. We also got some ticks, so be careful!

Best spot on the Elk River

This is the best place to stay when floating the Elk River.  Lots to choose from, cabins, tents, campers, etc.  Have a late night loop (for the partiers), sand volleyball courts, shuttle to a nearby open air dance club, huge store and restaurant with good pizza and breakfast buffet.  The cabins are nice as well.  This is our go to spot for the Elk River year after year.  Canoes, rafts, kayaks, etc.  They have a 5 and 8 mile float option, depending on river conditions.

A wonderful campground to get away.

Easy walk to the lake. Best part: no cell service for the teens! Camped with other families and really enjoyed ourselves. Nice and quiet at night, too.

Great stop on Grand Lake, OK. Lots of trees in the park. Nice Pool.

Clean, multi-use campground with ricer access and scenic views

This is a great spot to camp if you’re looking for fishing access and some shade. I stayed in a primitive site, which just had a pit toilet and water. Each site was well impacted and flat, woth a picnic table. There are lots of trees for shade, but not very many places where they’re close enough together to string a hammock.

A former private lake

What a gem! Amazing swimming beach, modern bath house and great restaurant.

A handful of small campgrounds surround the lake. Almost every spot is on the water.

Only drawback is restrooms are sometimes a short walk away.
