Nice shady campground on the Missouri River. Good hiking/bike trail. Too many trees for satellite reception. Good local TV reception to Sioux City. Verizon cell/data works fine. Dump station available.

This is a new addition of the Drifter's Resort and down the road about 1/4 mile. Nice level concrete sites. Lots of trees, but we were able to get satellite reception. Good Wi-Fi signal but poor/spotty Verizon cell signal. A little traffic noise and some residential neighbor dogs barking. We would stay again.

Very hard to find. Don't use any GPS info in SKP's book for a Garmin. You'll never get there. Also very noisy with some traffic noise, but the trains go through at all hours and regularly. Other than that not too bad a park.

Very nice Corps park. Rate is with "Geezer" card. Good hiking and biking. Verizon cell works good and satellite should be available in most sites. Some trees. Would rate higher if it had sewer. Good dump station. Sites paved and sort of level.

Nice small park. Vz cell and MiFi worked fine. A lot of trees, but a few sites access satellite. Noise from highway.

Very nice small Corps park in wooded setting. Our Verizon cell and MiFi worked fine, but we couldn't get satellite at our site. Looks like a few sites could. For some reason we couldn't get local stations either. Not too far from Branson (about 15 miles). We would definitely stay here again.

Older Park with lots of trees. We couldn't find a site where our satellite would work. Our Verizon cell and MiFi worked OK.

Nice COE park. Would be a 10 if it had sewer. Our Verizon cell and MiFi worked fine and we were able to get satellite TV in our site. There is lots of trees so some sites probably do not have reception. We would definitely stay again.

The Zoo Park Rd address on the rec.gov website is wrong. The correct address is 4600 Skeet Eason, Waco 76708 as listed on the campground map handed out at park check-in. This is a very nice COE park with full hookups. Verizon cell is great and satellite should be available in most sites through the trees. Occasional airplane noise during day, otherwise very quiet.

Our 2nd time here. Still a great park for an older COE facility. Sites are large and many have satellite access through the trees with a great view of the lake. Verizon cell was good. Lake is way down so all of that is closed to rec. We'll keep coming back.

You had better like road noise. Not a quiet site in the whole campground. Nice facility with good Verizon reception, good satellite reception. Large and very cold casino.

The previous review said that this park is 1 mile from the Interstate: WRONG. It is right at the Big Springs exit and close to a busy train track. If you don't mind noise and want a really cheap place to stay, this is it.

This is a very basic campground layout on grass. It was very wet and muddy when we were here. They only have a few full hook-ups, the rest are water/electric. Right in the city and Verizon and satellite work great. You better like noise -traffic, airport flyway, and train. I doubt if we will stay here again.

This is a pretty nice campground, but the swing room is tight. We had medium level, road noise and some train noise. Our Verizon cell worked great. Park has nice people at the check in.

This is a really old Corps park. Sites are not leveled, in fact the dump station is even on a hill. We had to move to 3 different sites to get our motorhome level without having the rear wheels off the ground. Sites were paved and spacious and the campground was very quiet. Lots of trees so satellite can be a problem. Our Verizon cell worked fine.

Second time we've been here. We really like this campground and area. They are still making improvements to activity buildings. Good Verizon cell reception. Most sites have good satellite reception.

Nice campground with open sites. Some trees, but good satellite access in most sites. Would get higher rating if it had sewer etc. Verizon cell reception good. You can see where storms have damaged things and repairs are ongoing.

Beautiful park with large sites. Very noisy with trains tooting at all hours. Verizon cell phones worked great. Some sites with satellite reception.

I don't know how the last reviewer stayed for $10/night. I'm a senior and got a $5 discount off the regular rate of $25. It is a beautiful park with a great golf course. No sewer which is why I didn't give it a 9 or 10. It's nice they have cable TV available because there are so many trees that satellite reception is nill. Verizon cell phone coverage is very limited. We had to drive to the golf course or into Rutledge to get reception.

SKP member park. Really convenient to Branson. Our site was not level either, but we could use our jacks just fine. Some sites have satellite access. Our Verizon cell phone worked great.

Large park just a few miles from I-35. The dump station and rest rooms were closed due to the time of year. Park has access to lake, but we didn't explore a lot because we were just here for a quick over night. Many sites open enough for satellite and our Verizon air card and phone worked great. Sites were not real level, but long pull throughs for easy access. We would definitely stay again.

Nice quiet area with spacious sites. Lots of hiking biking trails and roads. Pretty remote - Verizon cell phone signal weak, but it worked. Local TV stations available and satellite in some sites between trees. No water or sewer but good dump station.

Nice quiet large sites, but not very level. Good Verizon cell signal. Great park for being as close to Ft. Worth as it is. Lots of room to hike/bike. We'll definitely come back here.

Nice park. The other reviews are correct. Good Verizon cell reception. Very windy, most days, during our 2 week stay. Sewer hookup would have been nice, but they have 2 good dump stations.

Escapee member co-op. Nice spacious sites, but not all available to rent. Quite a few planned activities. Verizon cell service marginal. Close to train and highway so there is some noise, but not too bad. Overall we'd stay here again.

Wow, nobody else mentioned the road NOISE on the highway right behind the park. Especially between 5:00-8:00AM. Everybody is going to work in their noisy trucks. Also the sites are very tightly spaced. Other than that it's a nice little park. Full hook-ups, clean, good view of the bay, etc.

Beautiful country, terrible park. Two different 30 amp pedestals continually tripped their breakers. We never did get power into our rig. We finally left in frustration. When leaving we incurred some major body damage because of the narrow roads and large trees restricting turning room. I would not recommend this park to anyone driving a 40 ft motorhome. Nice people running it though.

Nice park, newly remodeled with large sites and 50 amp electric. Right on Colorado River. Great backup for Buckskin Mountain.

I disagree with the manager complaints. They are very friendly and cooperative. This trip we wound up staying here over a month. This is our 3rd stay and we'll come back. Nice, well laid out campground with good laundry and exercise facilities. Great location: quiet, away from the Vegas hustle-and-bustle, and close to Lake Mead. Whoever complained about a lack of trees and heat obviously has not been in the desert before!

Great facility near St. George. Beautiful pull-through sites. It was really windy the day we arrived and there is no shelter/trees anywhere. The next day the wind calmed and it was beautiful. We will definitely stay here again.

Great spot for a nice quiet overnight. It's a ways off the Interstate, and has a long gravel entry road. Other than that, I agree with the other reviews.

Nice park with 50 amp service. Would be great if it had water and sewer at the site. Large sites with lots of trees. Very good area to bike.

Nice campground. It would be fantastic if there was water and sewer available. It ties into the Lewis and Clark Recreation area which has miles of hike/bike trails, beaches, playgrounds, marinas, etc.

Nice campground. It would be fantastic if water and sewer hookups were available. It ties into the Lewis and Clark Recreation area which has miles of hike/bike trails, beaches, playgrounds, marinas, etc. Lots of shade trees.

I don't know why the previous reviews are so negative. This is the first time we have stayed here and it is a great park. Full hookups with 50amp service, huge paved lots, miles of biking, gulf beach access, and more. What more could you ask for! We would stay here again in a minute.

Really tight sites - jammed together. A lot of highway noise. Friendly staff. We probably would not stay again.

Secluded sites in heavy forest - sand, not too level, and no satellite. Good park roads until you get to campground - then gravel with lots of pot holes. Trees into campground exremely tight for our 40 ft motorhome. Really nice park with lots of great hiking/biking trails. We would stay here again for a short while.

Nice park - I agree with the other reviews. We got reprimanded for setting up our Starband satellite tripod because we had wires running across the ground. They have discontinued the WiFi system they used to have. Consequently I would rate them NOT internet friendly. Very poor cell phone service. We would stay here again for a short while.

We had BIG electrical problems. 50amp plug only had one leg and was putting out 140 volts. 30 amp plug was putting out 145 volts and both kept blowing our surge protector. We left. Beautiful park though.

Beautiful park in fall. Large sites with lots of trees. Many have satellite access. Hard to find - located on Hwy #76 between Anderson and Clemson. There is a small brown recreation sign on highway indicating turn to west.

This is our favorite park in the whole country. Great sites, miles of hiking/biking paved paths. Hard to get into on summer weekends. Great for kids.
