Fort Leonard Wood camp Ground

The camp ground at Fort Leonard Wood Missouri is disgraceful. It has no facilities and it is not keep up at all. Just a big circle like dirt road with a few dirt spots to camp. The command does not care about the retired veterans or the troops on the facility as far as camping goes.

AHH GEEE! The last time I camped there (45 years ago), all I had was a shelter half and a back pack.

One of the reasons seasoned vets pronounce Ft Leonard Word, MO...


Ft Leonard Wood, MISERY

Then again US Military Campgrounds posts this review:

This is a very rustic and primitive area to park an RV along the Big Piney River about 5 miles from the main post. This camping area is located on post. Campers may use this area without reservations, fees, or check-in. There is room for tents and RV's to dry-camp.

(Best bet in the area is Lake of the Ozarks - or if you must FamCamp, McConnell, KS or Scott AFB, IL)

Concur, however, FLW does sponsor a really nice facility 55 miles northwest (off post) of Ft Lost-In-The-Woods called Lake of the Ozarks Recreation Area. It's a 360 acre reserve open all year with 29 concrete sites (FHU) and nice facilities, if you don't mind a short drive.

Only did an overnighter here but checked out the facility before hitting the road. Very nice, defiantly would like to return for a few days

It sounds like a good idea for a place to stop on my trip back home. I spend winter of 70-71 there and would be fantastic to show the wife where did my basic & combat engineering training.
