Toby, Indian Point is on the road to Silver Dollar City, just a little further out. Makes getting in and out of the "city" a lot easier because you are opposite the traffic flow.

Yes, Indian Point COE is an excellent place to stay for a few days if you plan to visit Silver Dollar City. Only downside is that some of the sites are too short for fifth wheels and the sites are electric only. It’s a real bonus though to avoid the unbelievable traffic mess that comes in from the other side.

I think what I'll do is check it out when I'm down there in May. We aren't taking the camper in May, only in July. We will be on two wheels in May and so that's just another place to ride to.

I'll check it out. Someone said it was lakeside right?

Yes, it is lakeside. Just take Indian Point road and follow the signs to Indian Point campground. You'll go right past Silver Dollar City on the way. You'll also pass by Lakeview RV park which has an entrance road that is incredibly steep. A lot of trailers have scraped going into that park.

If you're checking out Indian Point C.O.E. campground, once you pass the check in office, go to the right going towards' the sites 61-78. We stayed at #76, which was huge & had water/50 amp electric. I think all those in that loop are water/electric & alot are good size for a big 5th wheel. You will have no view of the water, but the sites are spaced generously between your neighbors. If you go to the left after the check in office, you'll see how cramped the sites are.

Hey thanks for all the tips. I'm going to check it out. We normally stay at the Wilderness which is the SDC campground. I like the staff there. The showers are really nice too. One thing I don't like is some of the camp sites are about 6 feet from the highway. We only fell for that the first year though when we had our pop up there. We also stayed across the street at the Compton a few times and that one is down and away from the highway.

BUT

If we had a lakeside campground we can twist some arms and get some friends to come with us with their barge. Wouldn't that be fun?

If you want right on the water & not very far away from Silver Dollar City, check out Mill Creek on recreation.gov on the peninsula arm to the left. New water/50 amp electric sites just steps from the water. Many pull thru sites very good size. It can be windy right on the point but the sites toward the cove or swimming area are really nice. Kimberling City is real close to Branson West, just minutes from S.D.C. Once at Kimberling City, go across the bridge(south) on Hwy. 13 about 2 or 3 miles,then right(there is a very good barbeque place at the Mill Creek turn-off) . They have a nice boat ramp and pretty good fishing there too!
