Absolutely beautiful campground. Many things to do..nice swimming pool, tubing for the river, nice driving range. Mini Golf could use some improvement. There are many very nice, large, shady sites here, however because we didn't book very far in advance so we ended up with a site which was full sun and at the far end of the campground. It was quite a hike up a hill to get to the office and other amenities. This campground had more of a "party" atmosphere than we enjoy. Otherwise we would have rated it higher.
We have been camping here for years and it is our favorite campground we've ever been to. Sights are large and flat. Grassy sights available. Shady and sunny sights available. Campground and showers are always extremely clean. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Campground is nicely laid out. Great for families. It is located on lake independence, although there aren't any lake front sights. Many things to do including wonderful bike paths and hiking paths, very nice and large playground, canoe and paddle boat rentals, separate picnicking area by lake and nice swimming beach. Very reasonably priced for all of the amenities. Make reservations early as the electric sights do book up fairly quickly. They do not have full hook ups.
Nice campground just off the interstate, yet we didn't hear any traffic noise. Very clean and well kept. Very friendly staff. We made the reservation last minute and online. Staff expected us and had everything ready. Nice store. Pool was nice and clean. The only reason I didn't rate this higher is the full hook up sights were extremely close together. It was fine for a one night stay but it would have been very difficult to stay here for any longer. They did have other sights that were larger and had shade.
Very nice State Park. We liked the layout of the park. We stayed in campground 2 and we were close to the bathrooms/showers and marina as well as fishing area. The lake was beautiful and the people were helpful and friendly. The sights were large and flat. We had a nice shady sight. The only reason I didn't give this a 10 is because when we got to our sight it was a mess. There were broken bottles in the fire pit. There was cardboard and pieces of paper all over our sight. We had to take about a half an hour to clean it up before we could even set up camp. Overall, we had a good experience here. It was located fairly close to the Branson activities as well. We rented a car.
Nice clean campground. Sights were large. Lots of shade. Beautiful State Park. It was tick season so we had lots of ticks on us but it didn't take away from the enjoyment of the park. We had a nice sight but I wish we would have been closer to the water. We were in campground 2. I think campground 3 or 4 is closer to the water.
