We spent several days camping at Bernice State Park. Spacious, open sites and beautiful views of the lake. They have a hiking trail, but it was closed while we were there as they were getting it ready for Halloween. Didn't use the restrooms. We enjoyed our stay and would go back.
Pulling up, we were dubious at best. Boy, were we surprised. Other casinos we've stayed up were just a parking lot with service. Oh no. These was individual graveled pull thru sites done better than some paid campgrounds we've stayed at. Registering for a players card, we each got $10 free play and $10 free food. Our total breakfast was $1 after applying $. Good selection of 🍺 and liquor. Pool in the bar. Bathrooms super clean. As a former smoker, I didn't like that is was a smoking facility, but the smell was not very strong. We played a whole, had some fun, had some food and drinks and a good night's sleep. The trains coming through several times throughout the night were not too bad. Just wore ear plugs and had our white noise machine going. Would definitely go back if passing this way again.
We stayed at one of the Premium Waterfront sites in early April and absolutely loved it! It looks like many of the people here have year-around rentals so I would imagine if you are booking throughout the summer, you'll want to get your reservation in as early as possible. Having a picnic and campfire area right next to the water was a unique experience for a campground and we would definitely stay again if we are ever in the area. One thing you will want to note is that you may need an electrical extension if you're bringing a towable as the electric is on the opposite side from the sewer and water. The campground does have a supply of these, if needed. Oh, and the wireless can be spotty depending on your site location in the park.
Great summer time RV and year around tent camping. Several miles of trails for hiking and smooth enough for decent mountain biking. Also a great spot do go down and see waterfalls and throw the kayaks in the water.
RV facilities are clean for black water dump. Also has cabins and small event center, swimming pool, several play grounds. Con- no water in RV spots during winter months and upper tent camping closes during winter.
We go here every year with family, The little trails from the campsites to the lake are amazing! There are little sand bars along the way to get into the water. There are trees at every campsite. Most campsites are nestled into the trees from the road making a beautiful Escape! The showers are very nice and they are free. Bathrooms are kept very nice as well!
Nice, no one camping in December. Mostly set up for RVs with some day use areas. Nice vistas of the Neosho River from the Echo Bluff sites with all the leaves down. Biggest detractor is the traffic noise. Didn't check out the boat launch area which was across the highway from the main park and office. NOTE JUST IN CASE (12/4/20): We found an adult black cat near our campsite who appeared pretty content to just sit in the leaves and watch everything! No collar or tags seen. Apparently no animal control for this county.
