Directions: From Hwy 51 in town of Mannford, go north at stoplight for apprx 1 mile to New Mannford Ramp sign, turn east at sign and follow road into campground. This used to be a COE park but is now leased to the City of Mannford. It is a small campground that is beautifully maintained by folks who live on the premises year round. Big rig friendly. They accept the COE card so our cost for camping with electric was a reduced $10.00 per night (rather than $18.00). During the winter months, there is no limit on amount of days you can stay at the campground. They will even wrap the closest water faucet to you so you can use it to refill your tank. They have a dump station. The only reason I've given this park a "8" is that there is no playground for kids. If you are wanting a playground and marina, go down the road to the Lake Keystone State Park. But if you are looking for a quiet retreat, this is the place! Even with the trees, there are lots of open spaces where satellite TV will work just fine. AT&T Air Card worked great and AT&T cell coverage was excellent. Favorite sites are #9, 12, 13 and 16.
Beautiful COE campground on Canton Lake. Shady level sites, with most sites having lots of space. We stayed in A41 which is across the road from showers and playground. Check out site map as some sites have 50 amp electric and water however water not available at most sites. There is not a swimming beach within walking distance. Also lake is very open and subject to white caps when windy.
This is another beautiful Oklahoma State Park. To get to campgrounds, turn off U.S. Highway 60 onto State Highway 137. This road runs through the park with campgrounds on either side of the highway. We were worried about road noise during the night but traffic declined sharply after dark. We stayed at Echo Hollow campground on the east side of Highway 137 overlooking Spring River. We were in a shaded site with a good view of pelicans on the river. We will come back here when we have more time to spend so we can explore the area and fish from the enclosed fishing dock. I checked yes for big rigs as our motorhome is 38 feet and we fit in a site just fine. We had no trouble getting level.
Wallace State Park is located two miles east of I-35 at Exit 48. This is just south of Cameron, Missouri, and about 68 miles from the Missouri/Iowa state line. There is good signage giving directions to the park. There are 4 campgrounds, with C#2 and C#4 having electric hookups. We were met at the campground by very nice Park Hosts. We easily found a level pull-through site for rig. We will be back so we can explore the park's hiking trails and the surrounding area.
We discovered that Iowa has an awesome County Park system which has lots of campgrounds. Check out "mycountyparks" to find these various parks. Squaw Creek campground is a spacious campground with lots of trees. Sites have lots of space and were level. It was less than 15 minutes away from downtown Cedar Rapids. We will definitely stay here the next time we are visiting family in Cedar Rapids. We chose this park as family was on the east side of Cedar Rapids. If you need to be on the west side of Cedar Rapids, consider staying at Morgan Creek Park, another Linn County Park.
Campground is located on the shore of the Mississippi River. Most campsites have great views of the river. Campsites vary with amount of shade. Campsites can accommodate large rigs and are quite level. There is also a Corp of Engineer Park called Fisherman's Corner located just to the east of this park.
