Great park, great location, great service. Pros - Easy in / out. Escort to site. Clean restrooms / showers. Campground hosted pancake breakfast with live entertainment for minimal cost. Quiet. Accommodating for site choice. Paved main roads. Show tickets available. Trash pickup at your site daily. Cons - Sites close together. Gravel sites. Very poor water quality, bring bottled water. No campfires. Overall, we would return to this campground. Although sites are a bit close together, you can still pull rigs in and out with no problem. Be prepared as many sites are not real level. The water coming out of the faucets at the sites is brown, even after letting it run for a period of time. The campground is close to town, but still very quiet. One of the best in Branson.
Great state park, a real gem. Clean park throughout. Sites all are paved and pretty close to perfect level. In full hookup area, each site has a side pad for screen tent or regular tent. nice lodge with programs for the kids. None of the sites are lake front, but it is designed that way to keep the lake front pristine. Nice pool, but there is a separate charge for it's use. Shhh, don't tell too many people as there are only 30 sites at this park.
We have choosen this campground because it is the perfect half way point for us when traveling. New owners are working very hard to make this a great campground. Pros - Convenient to interstate 35. Somewhat easy pull-through sites. Nicely maintained. Very friendly owners. Reasonably priced. Clean restrooms and showers. Nice countryside sunsets. Cons - Advertised Wi-Fi, and had the site closest to the office on two seperate occasions, but could not connect with laptop or iPad. To access the pull-through sites near the front of the campground, you need to either do some strategic backing and turning, or cut through some of the other pull through sites. Some of the pull throughs in the back of the campground are not very level and requires some major chocking of the wheels. Overall our stay was very pleasant and we would, and will stay here again. I know the new owners are working very hard to make improvements and I expect to see nothing but positive improvements at Eagle Ridge.
This was previously a KOA Campground and is now under new ownership. Campground has many "seasonal" campers. Our site was site #76, which you accessed down a narrow dirt path road. To our surprise our campsite was angled wrong for the one dirt road we entered on. we had to drive to the end of the campground where the owner told us there was a turn around. The road to the turn around area was VERY narrow and I barely got my normal sized RV trailer between the trees. Once we reached the "turn around" we discovered is was an over grown open spot in the field. If there had been any recent rain, we would have gotten stuck. Once we turned around and headed back down the road, we were able to back into our site. The site was cement pad nicely landscaped, but many sites were nothing more that a grassy opening in the woods. Wi-Fi was almost non exsistent. Pool was green, bathrooms were clean, but showers need some work. The space between our camper and the lake was very overgrown with no access to the lake behind our camper, which was suppose to be lake front. Road into campground is about 8/10 mile gravel. Overall, the owners are working hard to make this a good campground, but I fear when we return next year, it will be filled with seasonal campers, and no room for temps like us.
Cons: Interior roads are dirt, so in dry weather it can get a little dusty. Sites are close together, but in tourist areas like this they are all close together. Sewer hook up drained very slow, but when I reported it, they came immediatly to try to rectify. It helped a little but was still a challenge. Trash bins were consistently over flowing during the entire week we stayed. Pros: Family friendly. Thompson river runs adjacent to this campground. Located about a mile from entrance from RMNP. There is a walking bridge across the river to a small grocery store, liquor store, and restaurant. Friendly, helpful staff. We would stay here again.
Pros: Easy in / out, all pull through's, bathrooms (used at 9am Friday) were pretty clean. Con's: Wi-fi did not work, 30 amp hook ups worked as long as you only ran one thing at a time. When we would use air conditioning (100+ weather) along with water heater, breaker would trip. Campground is positioned on a slight incline and sewer connections are on the high side of each campsite, so even with a sewer hose support, hose will not drain properly. First night we stayed, we wanted to leave our bedroom window open due to the constant breaker issues, but the smell of sewer throughout the campground would not allow us to keep the window open. When we asked the guy at the counter for a recommendation of a pizza place in Salina, he just laughed and said "no one knows good pizza around here." This campground is advertised as an "Oasis in the Midwest". No thanks, I will continue to the next "Oasis", thank you.
