We chose Old Circle Campground because it is more secluded. What a great State Park. Lots of shade and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Access to pool for $3 as well as mini golf, paddle boats, swimming beach and horseback riding. The caves were neat to climb around on. Great place for kids. Very scenic and quiet. The whole park is well kept and clean. October would also be great during the changing of the seasons. Little Mexican restaurant in Wilburton is good too. 2 thumbs up.
Nice clean park with modern hook-ups, clean (pay) showers, restrooms and laundry. Recommend south end of Abilene loop if you want shade. Day fee for entry into park. Great bike trails, fishing and nice swimming area. No highway noise at this campground, but it is in the flight path of DIA! We would stay here again when in Denver area.
We appreciated this KOA. Even with lots of highway noise, the shade, fishing pond, pool, playground & game room with pool table overcame this inconvenience. It was clean and the staff was courteous and efficient with reservations as well as check-in. Salina has plenty of restaurants and stores. We thought it was a great place to stop and would definitely stop again when in the area.
Enjoying Mar Val will depend on the site you get. The reservation desk is not much help in this regard. Didn't like the executive sites which are stuck at the end with no trees. We felt best sites were #146-#151, pull thrus with shade and full hook up. #205 is on the river, nice & shady but no sewer. Our kids enjoyed the pool & river. Call well in advance if you want a specific site. Don't forget to look at Greenleaf State park while there. Nice place as well. We will definitely return.
We really enjoy Elephant Rock. Lots of trails for cycling/walking/jogging. Nice shady spots, most with decent privacy. Close to Lake Murray Lodge for typical lodge activities, swimming, mini-golf, paddle boats, pool, horseback riding, marina. Lots of restaurants in Ardmore as well. Only problem is that it fills up fast.
I wasn't crazy about this campground. As previously mentioned, it feels like a trailer park. Sites are close together. The place has lost that loving feeling. Showers/restrooms and grounds were very clean; office staff was rushed. When you are in Branson on vacation, you need more than this.
We stayed here on the way to our destination. The property sits next to a truck stop. The cigarette smoke in the office was overpowering. This should be addressed by management, however, staff was friendly and efficient. It's an "okay" place to spend the night on the way.
Nicely appointed campground in that all are close to water for fishing & views. Dock within walking distance if you prefer to fish off of it. Great place if you have a boat. No restrooms or showers however, we felt that a place in this price range really needs this as well as pool and gameroom. We enjoyed it and have placed it on our "will go back" list.
