Not sure what the backstory of this campground was, but Josh took over in April and you can tell he has put a lot of work into fixing it up.
We stayed in a cabin. We don’t stay in many cabins - usually in an RTT - so I can’t compare what is typical. The weather was wet and windy and we were in the middle of travel days - so we needed a warm, dry, no fuss place to stay. So for us it was just fine. Plus, Josh was great getting us in last minute.
I think the cabins are well suited for a fish camp type stay, but if you are traveling with someone who will be bothered by beat up appliances and bare bones bathroom, this won’t be to their liking.
Next time I stay we will opt for the campsites, which look to be level and better spaced than a lot of campgrounds. Shade varies from spot to spot, with some lacking any.
I’ll also make sure I have a MO fishing license, because I’d love to cast a line here. For people bringing a boat, there is a boat ramp and marina docks and fuel.
Josh seems to take a lot of pride in the place and given more time, I am sure this campground will continue to get even better.
The Mark Twain Forest is a great setting, too, but our dawn departure pictures didn’t really turn out.
