I gave it a mediocre because of the tight fits between trees as well as the corners. Many of the trees are very low and too close to the roads, especially on corners. They need trimming very badly. Also the roads are in dire need of maintenance. My opinions are indicative of a large motorhome (ours is a 40-ft) but in watching some larger 5th wheels they were also having problems.
We loved it. I'd have given it a 10 except getting into the RV sites can be a little tight because the streets are narrow and the only place to park your tow vehicles is on the street. Makes it rather tough, especially with the longer RV's. They offer free breakfast and lunch every day while your here. Plenty of things to do and see in the area. Definitely will stay here again.
I agree with the other earlier posters. Definitely a seasonal park that happens to have a few RV sites available for a night or two stop over. We stayed here because it was close to some friends we were visiting in New Port Richey. I'd probably return.
For a quick overnight or so stop this place is great. If you are a Passport America member you get 50% off the $22 nitely rate. As mentioned the sites are level with good gravel, large concrete patios, concrete patio table/stools. Easy in and out. We stopped here to purchase and get a Ready Brake installed on our tow vehicle. Ready Brake's manufacturing facility is just down the road from the campground.
The access road is now resurfaced so that's not an issue anymore. Although it's still a little tight turning in with big rigs, especially pulling vehicles. It's not too bad of a site with the exception of the noisy and busy railroad line. My pet peeve is the price KOA charges for their sites. $43 is way over the top for what you get. Especially when the sites are dirt/gravel, uneven and extremely muddy when raining. I don't understand why campground owners don't upgrade their facilities when it's so obvious it's needed. I won't stay here again.
This park is in a good location for Orlando, Disney World, etc. It's not a pretty decent campground with a couple of exceptions. (1) You park on grass, dirt, mud (if it rains) and (2) the sewer connection is in the wrong location. In most cases it takes two or even three hoses to reach. (However, the park manager said they are going to upgrade this and relocate the sewer hoses to where they should be.)
We stayed for 5 nights only because it was our first time to Branson and didn't know where else to stay. This campground needs to be upgraded big time. Most of the sites are too close together, and they need to be re-graveled or paved so they will be built up and you don't need to step in mud when you enter/exit your RV. Some of the more expensive sites (add $5) have plenty of room, but the mud issue still exists. Be careful going here in the rainy season, we had too leave early because of flooding. The lake rose overnight by two feet, and the next morning the water was 10 feet from our door.
I have to agree with one of the other posters on this campground, which is really a mobile home park with some RV sites available. The electricity is solid, water tested good. There's only 5 or 6 50amp sites, the rest are 30amp. It's quiet and all paved. Although some of the paving can be a bit rough. Although it's a little on the rough side, meaning old and very worn out, if you need somewhere to stay near Covington, (which we did) then it's not that bad.
Although this park is in a nice area backed up against the front range mountains the sites them selves have not been kept up well at all. Many are overgrown with weeds and when it rains water runs everywhere including right under the RV. The electric outlets, sewer and water connections are located in the wrong place. Without extra 30 or 50 amp extension cords you won't be able to reach the electric power plug. The campsites themselves need major upgrades to accommodate newer larger RV's.
This State Park is an excellent location and although out in the middle of nowhere it has spectacular views. If they had at least a dump station then I would have rated it as a 10 instead of a 5. As it is, we had to wait until we got back to Deming and dumped, and one of the local campgrounds charged us a full nights stay just to dump.
This place is a joke, being called an RV Campground. It's more or less a small, junky and dirty mobile home park that at one time was probably a nice campground. It's been invaded by temporary workers that follow construction projects and the sort. It's extremely messy and I wouldn't recommend this be listed at all as a campground.
