Very quiet, lots of shade and nice graveled sites. Close to town and with the cave and winery on the grounds, it is a great location. Staff is nice and campers seem to be a good crowd. Some of the sites are pretty narrow but not prohibitively tight.

We enjoyed our stay here. The campgrounds are shaded with a small stream running along the edge. They have bathrooms, a shower and laundry facility. The Mark Twain Cave tour is also right there next to the campgrounds and has guided tours. The site is just a few miles south of Hannibal. Lots to do in this little town.

We loved this park. It is located a couple miles south of the town and freeway. The park is roomy, shaded by mature trees and it is very quiet. You are within a short walk of being able to see the Mississippi River and, although we didn't have time to visit, the Mark Twain Caverns are open for guided tours. The town of Hannibal is just a short drive away with a variety of offerings of food, spirits, tours, shops, etc. We were assigned a spacious gravel-based pull-thru site for our 24' trailer....

Hook-ups were well placed and convenient. The space wasn't as level as some others we've stayed at but I noticed the ones next to ours were better. Staff was pleasant and helpful and the store appeared to be fairly well stocked. We didn't use the TV, WiFi or showers/restrooms. We enjoyed the local wines offered at the winery tasting room on site. The server was quite knowledgeable and friendly. We were simply passing through but made a promise to ourselves to return when we could spend a few days exploring and enjoying this area with this park as our home base.

We spent a 3 day weekend with our travel trailer here, and it was what I would call "acceptable" and I would stay again. Friendly staff, they run a quiet and respectable place. There were some notable issues, though: 1. The road through the place is *very* rough, it is a failed concrete road that has been partially graveled over from the looks. Driving very slowly, it actually managed to shake up sodas in my trailer fridge. 2. There are two speed bumps on the way in. Watch them closely,... Read More

We spent a 3 day weekend with our travel trailer here, and it was what I would call "acceptable" and I would stay again. Friendly staff, they run a quiet and respectable place. There were some notable issues, though: 1. The road through the place is *very* rough, it is a failed concrete road that has been partially graveled over from the looks. Driving very slowly, it actually managed to shake up sodas in my trailer fridge. 2. There are two speed bumps on the way in. Watch them closely, if you have low clearance on your tank drain you had better go slow. 3. The sites vary from pretty nice to way too tight...with most being too tight. My neighbor had a travel trailer with fold-down soft-side beds on it (Jayco Feather). He had to pull forward quite a bit after starting to set up and realize my fire pit was basically under his side bed once folded down. Our picnic table was about 3 feet from their slide out window. Our site was one of the more generous ones on the back line of full-hookups. The pull-through sites in the middle seemed much better. 4. The spread between hookups on your site may stress your equipment. I came out OK, but had a fully extended sewer hose towards the front of my camper and a fully extended power cable back to the pedestal. My neighbor had to go to the store and buy a new, longer water hose because his spread was even worse. I didn't take any measurements, but I'd guess 20+ feet between power/water and sewer. If you stay here, make sure you have a long sewer hose...the water is next to the power and the sewer is an unusually long way from those. WIFI was about like most places. Weak signal and slow service due to others taking more than their share. Next time we go up there, we'll stay here again. It really is a good spot, seems to be the best in the area. I did pick a few sites that I'll see if we can reserve for our next trip, as they have a little more breathing room. That said, the pull-through sites seemed pretty decent. There is a restaurant that smelled really good (we cooked every night), a little shop with ice/firewood, and they really had everything else you expect or need. The park itself should not be your destination, the cave might entertain for part of a day but you will be off to town looking for something to do. We went for a festival and were gone most of the day, and that worked just great.

Beautiful, tree filled campground. Large sites and relaxing environment. Really easy access, even for long rigs towing trailers!
