America's Best Campground, Branson

Here we are crammed in like New Orleans drag queens at a Mardi Gras Ball. There is probably 6' between rigs and a little spot for your TV to squeeze in.

With our military discount we got 10% off the 35 bucks a day and another couple of percent for paying cash. So it cost us 27 bucks a night. Every site has a sewer. That's nice. Trash is picked up every morning. There are laundry facilities nearby in the campground. There might be a tree around here somewhere, but we have yet to find it.

It's 35 bucks in advance, non refundable. If you pay for a week and leave after 5 days, you do not get your money back. All money is payable in advance. Pay by check or cash. It's cheaper.

The people here seem hungry for company and conversation. And one thing.....they are all at least as old as we are.

Are you wanting us to come and camp there or come and rescue you?

We need rescue! Help <G>. I think we are state park kinds of campers, not commercial park kinds. Obviously this is a great place for lots of people - especially people who love to drive their cars in and out a lot. With their lights on. I'm surprised the drivers do not blow their horns just because it's dark out.
We will not return here.

Wish I could help. I hear you on the state parks. We stayed at a Corp of Engineers park on Canyon Lake just 2 weeks ago and it was beautiful with deer and 100+ year old oak trees. I hear there are also some nice parks in the Piney Woods north of Houston if you make it this way.

We stayed at Branson's Ozark Country Campground, and it was great. It is a Passport America park, and they honored it every day we were there, even on the Memorial Day weekend! Most spots had trees, but they only had 6 pull-thru's with trees. They had 5 brand new concrete slab pull-thru's, but they were in the open. Overall we were very impressed with it. A little tough getting to (lots of turns and hills), but not bad. Dad pulled a 34' 5th wheel, and I had my 30'. I would have no problem recommending them.

Have to agree with Pondlady regarding "America's Best Campground." We stayed here September 29 and couldn't figure out why Good Sam members would vote it Number 1. Yes it has full hookups and office was nice, but the sites were not level...back of travel trailer six inches off the ground and the front was 30 inches off the ground. We wouldn't go back there again. On our way home we did stay at a campground at Linnville, IN that had very low Trailer Life ratings (just about didn't stop here because of the ratings) and it turned out to be a very nice park and our site was level side to side. So it is hard to know what a campground is going to be like until after it has been camped in.

pondlady, I feel your pain............
once upon a time we stayed in a park similar to this one, maybe the same one, with our pop up. the roads were narrow, campers were stack on top of others, fire rings well not there, gravel everywhere. Loacalized trash bins only at front, but the shower house was nice.........

Never to return there and definately never with our new TT

Try staying at Indian Point Corp engineers, or Table Rock State Park both awesome places.
