Boomland RV Park, Charleston MO

Headed to Branson MO in a couple of weeks. Planning an overnight in the Sikeston MO area. Found a campground called Boomland in Charleston MO. The Internet reviews are less than favorable. Anyone stayed here that can give some honest feedback on the place?

Hi,

I have overnighted there several times. It cost $12 and there are full hookups. For an overnight you can't beat it. I wouldn't recommend an extended stay.
As far as campfires I didn't see any. The restaurant inside has good food and the gas is cheap. You could probably just pull in and pick a spot, hookup, and leave in the morning and no one would know. I just go inside the store and pay there. I have never encountered anyone at the park checking to see if I paid or not. Pretty laid back.

PapaSmurf, 16 miles further west, right at Hwy 62 and I-55 at Sikeston, MO, there is an RV park called Hinton RV. Nice, clean little park. We stayed there last fall on our way back to St. Louis. Also at that exit, on the west side of I-55 (the park is on the east side of I-55) is Lambert's Café, "The Home of Throwed Rolls." Kind of a fun spot to eat, if you've never been there before. Lamberts offers free shuttle service from Hinton RV park to the restaurant and back. Just have the folks at the RV park call the restaurant and they'll send the shuttle for you, and take you back to your RV after you eat. Shuttle service if free, but a couple of $$ tip to the driver gets you a bonus. He'll take you in the side door to the restaurant and get you a table ahead of the (usually pretty sizeable) crowd waiting at the front door for a table.

Boomland is a very basic no frills park but they do have 50 amp service and the nightly rate is just $12. It’s good for an overnight stop.

If you want wifi and cable TV you might consider Hinton RV park in Sikeston just off I-55 at exit 67. It is just about two miles off your planned route. It too is a somewhat basic RV park and the nightly charge is $28 for Good Sam or AARP members. If you stay there do yourself a favor and go to dinner at Lambert’s Café, Home of the Throwed Rolls. The food is plentiful and be ready to catch your hot roll.

Mmmm......love me some throwed rolls

Like Cracker Barrel....well except for the atmosphere (roll throwing) and the extra family style serving of some yummy sides!

Where are you staying once you make it to Branson? We are camping at Indian Point C.O.E. by Silver Dollar City for World Fest.

Boomland...also has an extensive array of fireworks.

You can legally purchase up to 1.75" (commonly referred to as 2") mortars.
We used to go get out stuff there until we got our Federal license.

/now we can order from the maker up to 16" mortars....there really outta be a law

If you ask while you're having dinner, Lambert's will usually let you overnight on their lot. We did it on our way from St. Louis to Florida in December. Also, just across the highway (east side) at the same exit as Lamberts is Town & Country RV Park. Not as good a price as Boomtown, but it's a nice little FHU park, also with a Lambert's shuttle.

Don't drop your "throwed roll." People will laugh. Years ago a friend of ours, a first-timer who thought that "throwed" meant tossed into your hand from the end of the table, had one bounce off of his forehead and right into the giant mug of iced tea that they serve. He didn't know whether to laugh, cry, or spit, but everyone else from several tables around got a good laugh out of it.
