Established in 2016 the rv sites do not have shade, but are all concrete with great amenities. There is a beautiful lodge on the property and cabins/townhomes/hotel rooms are availble, too. A past governor had this built basically as a family rememberance and is not your typical state park.
The area is know for floating and there is live water in the park for playing. Our lab loved it!
Wild horses are in the area and three stay in this camping area. You will likely see them(or maybe almost bump in to them) when you open your door.
Fantastic wifi. No cable.
We really enjoy this park.
This is a new (‘17) campground. Trees have been planted but currently no shade. Concrete pads. Nice store with pizza ovens.
It is right on the Niangua River and they provide put in and take out along with canoe and kayak rental. Fees were very reasonable.
They are building a winery and drive in theater to be open in ‘19.
A wonderful addition to the area.
Would be a 5 with cable, WiFi and paved lane.
We love staying here! Right next to the Niangua River for floating and trout fishing.
Sites are pretty level, require little work and full hook ups are available.
We stayed just one night and will do so again if near Effingham.
The location is great off the interstate and is close to Walmart, restaurants, etc if you need anything.
Gravel sites and level. Big shade trees.
The road to our site had a tight turn and required a little maneuvering but not terrible.
This is a small, maybe 35 sites, clean well maintained campground. The owners have rules and they DO enforce ‘em. (They will guide you to your spot and likely oversee your parking and check set up.) as a result it is quiet, grass all in good shape, etc.
Sites are close but we had plenty of room for what we needed. We could have put out awnings if we had wanted to. A storm was expected and they do have basement shelter available.
When traveling through we would definitely stay again.
We were in the area for medical visits in Cleveland. This spot was convenient and a great location to do a little sightseeing. Sites were gravel and level. We enjoyed full hookups. Cable was better than most but WiFi could be a little weak. Curb trash pickup is always a little plus. Staff was friendly. Great amenities for families. Pool. Playground. Dog park. Fishing ponds. Planned activities.
Bottom line. We will stay here again when back toward Cleveland.
