The check-in process was easy. The staff was friendly. The sites have nice, concrete pads. We stayed in Site 210. It was very nice and spacious. There is no Verizon cell phone service whatsoever in this campground area, but I do not think that is any fault of the campground. The only Wi-Fi signal available is at the campground store. The campground store is closed during the week between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. This is very inconvenient considering this is the time of day when most campers are active and are in need of things, like ice for their coolers. The campground store had moldy sandwiches in their refrigerated area. The cashier (an older lady) was very slow, and the computer point-of-sale program appeared to be less than adequate, both of which resulted in our standing in a long line for a long period of time. My 17 year-old son took a shower in the shower house. He said the shower ran cold the entire time and never warmed up even though he had it all the way on hot. He even tried putting in all the way on cold just in case the faucet was installed incorrectly, but it still only ran cold. Overall, this is a nice basic campground, as long as you don't use the showers, don't need Wi-Fi or Verizon cell service and don't need anything from a campground store. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is an almost-new campground, rebuilt after the Ameren dam breach of 2005 washed away the old campground. As someone else told us, "this campground is so nice you almost wish Ameren would trash a few more parks." Campsites are spacious, with good shade in four of the five loops (the loop right as you enter the campground has no shade, but would be good for someone who finds satellite access critical). Electric sites are 50 amp, with posts that still look almost brand new. Restrooms and showers were adequate, with good water pressure--my only ding is that they need more staff to keep them clean on busy summer weekends. The pride and joy of the park is the natural water park of the Shut-Ins, but take time to hit the Visitor Center, which has excellent exhibits on the geology and ecology of the park, as well as the dam breach. Also try to take time to visit nearby Elephant Rocks State Park--kids love it. One warning. This part of Missouri is The Land That Telecommunications Forgot. Our Verizon phones had no signal (voice or data), and neither did my work Blackberry (on the AT&T network). We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful campground and would be particularly nice for families. There are miles of bike trails in the campground and you can rent bikes at the campground store. There's also a small playground. Wi-Fi and cell phone service is not available at most sites; however, the camp store has a Wi-Fi hot spot that is available 24/7. We were in Loop 2 and able to walk the short distance to the nice little camp store. All sites are paved, but not laterally level (probably for drainage). We were a little disappointed in the restrooms. There were only two showers; suspect that Loop 2 has mostly big rigs. We use campground showers though, and this one had no sink and was kind of dark. Did like the privacy of the shower. The Shut-Ins is a great park and well worth a few days' visit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
