We used to go to Mill Creek, State Park, and Port of Kimberling. If you are a Coast to Coast member, Treasure Lakes is nice. We now own a lot and keep or fifth wheel at Ozarks RV Resort. It is a lil drive from town but it is worth it to us.

DW and I prefer state park, USFS and NPS campgrounds over private trailer park-like campgrounds (KOA, etc), though we found a nice one in Shoshone, CA with a hot spring fed pool and a short 10-12 mile bike ride to Tecopa and Tecopa Hot Springs County Park - Tecopa Hot Springs - Camping in Inyo County: Bishop, Lone Pine, Big Pine Independence, California. If you go, don't miss the date farm down on the Armagosa River SE of town.

The Midwest does have some great local campgrounds, not so many on the East Coast. We stay in a wide variety of both private and public. If we like it we go back, if not we don't. Sometimes you have no choice. Also will depend on the seasons. We have a couple of state park campgrounds in NC/SC that I won't go to because they are in rough shape, there are others that we go to again and again. The private ones are getting expensive, we looked at one that we have stayed at before and it was $78 a night in peak season and is packed. Not our cup of tea.

NC/SC bad campsites; names please. We mostly go to NC/SC areas. Help us not make a mistake.

Corps of Engineer campgrounds on the lake are always good choices. Great locations with good sites and utilities. Good luck!
X2 on Cooper Creek. I believe it is the best RV choice in the Branson area. We have stayed there as long as two weeks at one time and have enjoyed every minute. Some people we have met there have been coming back for nearly 20 years. Right on Lake Taneycomo, great fishing docks and marina, rental boats, fishing guide, and an outstanding host. Also easy access to everything else in the area.

Lake Whitney State Park is wooded and has RV sites that are easy to get into. The town of Whitney, TX. is a bit off the beaten path, but has a good grocery market and a good hardware store. And is just a few miles from Hillsboro and I35. A good place to start.

We prefer the private parks. I feel much more secure in them as an owner our manager is always on site. Good luck getting anything fixed at an Ohio state park. After they get your money, you are on your own. Also, since we travel with two large dogs, private parks are usually more dog friendly. I spend a lot of time researching for space and facilities. Then I call for my reservations. If I don't like the staff's attitude on the call I don't make my reservation and look elsewhere. We have had all good sites in nice camp grounds but it takes time and making reservations early.

I'm sure there are bad ones out there, but we haven't found a "bad" NC/SC state campground yet! Some do offer more amenities and activities than others, but all are nice places.
Jordan Lake(all 3), Stone Mountain, Cedar Point, Lake Kerr (Satterwhite Point), Myrtle Beach, Huntington Beach are all nice campgrounds! Just do your research and you will be fine!

We stayed at the Indian Point Campground (INDIAN POINT, MO - Campground & Camping Details - ReserveAmerica - [NRSO]) when we visited Branson last year. It was pretty nice and certainly reasonably priced - and my Dad got 50% off with his Golden Age Pass.

ryand... DW and I were just in Branson for 3 nights two weeks ago. We stayed at Oak Grove Campground on the west side of the city, a full-hookup CG. We found it to be very clean, well maintained, and quiet. It's about 1/2 mile south of Hwy 76 on Gretna Road... which is also Hwy 165.

We spent one whole day driving around and looking at a lot of the other CGs, and found none of them to our liking; were either old and not well maintained, some were very hilly with narrow winding gravel roads to the sites, and a few were nice, but were several miles out of town.

If you want to be close to the shows and other activities, Oak Grove is perfect... and their rates are very reasonable. Google "Oak Grove Campground, Branson MO"!

paralegal I sent you a pm in regards.

We just got back from a 2k plus trip from the Midwest to the Appalachian mountain land. 2 of the best parks we stayed at were #1 a CG ran by Forsythe County in NC and #2 a National Park just outside of Asheville. Both were very clean, quiet, full service and had awesome CG hosts!

I am appalled that some of the places actually get away with calling themselves Campgrounds. We stayed at a couple of private CG's for 1 night during our haul out and back. Both were KOA's but in reality just full time trailer parks. In the future if it says KOA on it I'm not even looking at it.
