This campground was very nice with mostly shaded sites. Though there is not water on each site, connections were close enough to most sites to refill your tanks. It was pretty quiet during the week but completely filled up for the weekend. There are 13 miles of hiking trails within the park. There are also, surprisingly, sandstone cliffs that rise 100 feet above the streams on the west side of the park. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. This park is located just south of Boone which has, among other things, the Boone Scenic Railroad.
There are 1800 sites with 600 of them being full hookup. We camped on a hilltop overlooking the fairgrounds and the city of Des Moines. While there are a great number of level sites, some of the sites are on the side of the hills and look impossible to even camp on. This park is located on the east side of Des Moines and is convenient for shopping and restaurants.
Very nice campground located next to the city park. The city park contains picnic shelters, a hedge maze, a covered bridge and an observation tower that looks over a valley. There is also a stone bridge in the park that was in the movie "Bridges of Madison County".
Very nice park with a lot of the sites having at least a partial lake view. The roads were wide enough to accommodate larger RV's. The sites are somewhat terraced and seem to become more level farther from the shoreline. Although there was no water on site, the spigots appeared to be spaced good enough so that with a few sections of hose you could refill without moving your RV. The deer were pretty thick within the park and on the area roads in the late afternoon and early mornings so be cautious while driving.
Very nice state park about 5 miles west of Kirksville, MO. Very wooded with some sites on the lake. There were a lot of deer and other wildlife wondering the park. We stayed in a 50 amp electric site (I believe there are only two 50 amp and the others are 30). We did not have to go to the office to check in, a gentleman came up in a golf cart and checked us in right at our site.
We have been staying here for about a month, so far. The restrooms are clean and have individual lockable shower areas. The laundry room is large and contains two washers and two dryers, as well as vending machines. We were initially concerned about the safety of the area, but have had no problems at all. We are paying 11.00 a night based on a monthly rate of 330 with no separate charge for electric.
Alafia River State Park is a fairly new park and the camping area is open prairie. You can see most of the other RVs in the park from your site. The sites are about 1/2 pull through and 1/2 back-in. None of the sites are real close together. The great thing about this park was the hiking and mountain bike trails. We would stay here again in order to explore more of the trails. The nearest grocery store was about 7 miles from the park. There was a convenience store just a couple of miles down the road.
