Small older campground, mainly full hookup, pull-thru sites. Some long-term campers In back of park. Restrooms clean and well-maintained as is laundry. Roads gravel. Appears to be owned and maintained by older couple. Little contact with owner after checking-in. Soft-serve ice cream available in office (not open most of the time). Sits between two roads with heavy traffic about 24/7. Little shade. About 35 miles from Hannibal, MO with all Tom Sawyer/Huckleberry Finn attractions. Prices far more reasonable than in Hannibal. Walmart and fast food, restaurants in Bowling Green (about 5 miles away). Would return.
This little campground was my first ever stay with my new travel trailer. The owners have been wonderful and so friendly, answering questions and visiting. I'm in a pull through with full hookups and have had no problems.
The 'mountains' make cell reception iffy for some carriers but I have Verizon and I've had no problems. The bathrooms are nice and clean, but you must ask for a key so not just anyone can wonder in off the hwy. Hwy 54 runs right past so there is a bit of noise and if I'm outside I can hear a train go by but I've not had any problems sleeping. They have a put-put course, horse shoe area, a fire pit and a covered area with pic-nic tabes with a couple of bbq pits.
There is a designated area for dog walking and there are some long term spots as well. Check in was easy and there was a GoodSam discount for using cash. They do have some supplies on hand if you're in the market and the ice cream is yummy. I do wish they had a pool so I took a point off for that, but the price was right and the folks are friendly. I will definitely stay here again when I come back this direction.
We did not have a reservation - just decided to stop for the night. Office was locked - had a sign that said to chose an empty site. Small envelope was provided but I wanted to pay by credit card. This was a Good Sam campground. Restrooms were locked. No one was around. They did leave a phone number posted on door to call if you had any problems or questions - but there was no cell service. So we parked in a site (place was empty except for 3 other campers). At just after 9 pm a lady came by to collect. She was surprised we were able to hookup to the cable for TV. Also, said she knew there was no cell service - could of called from the phone in the office but since that was locked - she laughed!!! Next - you cannot get the Good Sam discount unless you pay by cash or check. Also, I asked about the restrooms - she said we had to get a key if we wanted to use them. Good thing we have a bathroom in our camper since she didn't open the office at all.
It was eye appealing but what a way to run a business. I felt she should have given us the discount because we did not have access to the bathrooms and she stated most people could not get the cable to work. We will never stay here again.
