That was me who wrote that and stayed there. It is indeed a horrendous place with very tight spots. I posted some photos here:

It looks like a used RV lot.

The internet censorship bothered me as much as the sardine feeling.

I think there must be a better place if this is what we are to be expecting. After the wide open spaces of a winter spent in AZ, not sure if I can take elbow to elbow and bumper to bumper (I don't have one)
After reading all these post it sounds like there won't even be enough room to park my big long F-250 crew cab and 8 foot box. Holy cow folks...
It would be super to meet all you guys and gals but if one person snores were all in trouble.
Those of us with 4 slides and 42 feet of living space could be setting in the road some where.
Tell me if I'm wrong, I can take it
Thank you and Pondlady for the update about the campground. This is not the wide open spaces like a state park with no services.

This is a quick 3 nighter and I'm not worried but I will talk with Michele on Monday about 5 ft apart sites. Hopefully they will have larger pull thrus. As others said about the others campgrounds in the area are all about the same. This is not a resort but I know I can live with it for a few days because I going to meet you a ll have have some great fellowship and Branson Mo. I can live with with any site as long as it has electric, water, sewer and maybe cable.

I feel it is to late to start over looking for another place. I'm still making my reservations tomorrow but will look at the sites and ask Michele to get us the widest pull-thrus.

I will update you tomorrow after talking with her.
I'm going to ask her to give us the Hilltop locations starting with A Site for that price they quoted. All they can say is not it will cost more. Anyway this way anyone who wants a larger site can ask for the Hilltop pull-thrus. I am.

Take a look at the campgrounds sitemap attached.

Understand Iggy, you are right as to the only 3 days and the fun of meeting others and having a good time and fellowship with friends.
I guess my only concern is getting in and setting up and not tearing anything off the CC or TT. The hill top lane looks good and maybe even some open space as so I can get my satellite dish mounted on the roof to find Direct TV for when I set my butt down and turn on FOX NEWS as to not miss any worldwide gossip.
Thanks Iggy for the answer and I'll be out most of the day but will check back here tonight and again tomorrow to see what Michele tells you.
Thanks again and have a good Sunday afternoon.
Watch NASCAR today..I do, hope Tony Stewart get it up front today and stays there!!

I found Branson Stagecoach RV Park on campgroundreviews.com.

Link: Branson Stagecoach - Branson Campground, Branson RV Park, Branson Camping

I emailed them for info. Here's a copy;

We would be happy to host your rally. The cost is $26 per night per rig
for 2 people. Additional people over the age of 11 is $3 extra per person
per night. The nightly rate includes the use of the clubhouse. We are
located across from the Table Rock Lake and State Park and Marina, about a
mile from the dam and about 5-6 miles from the 76 strip. We will handle
reservations on an individual basis. Each camper calls 30 days in advance
of arrival with a credit card to hold the site. We collect their
information at that time. We will have sites blocked off for them based on
your recommendation. Any sites not reserved 2 weeks prior to arrival will
be released to be reserved by campers other than your group. If you have
further questions please call Linda. I work Friday, Sat. or Sundays. I am
also in charge of rally's. Thank you for your inquiry.


What I liked best is you don't have to make reservations until 30 days prior.
I hope this doesn't cause confussion, just another option.

Before anyone makes any reservations at ABC what do you all think about this campground that Gary found?

Looks like all the sites are very large and roomy. Has a free shuttle to the strip which is nice as well as free Wifi. Nice. Price is about the same.

Keep this going so we can get a general concesus and try to make a final decision.

It looks like a nice campground. It is in the SW corner of Branson right across the road from the State Park. Maybe need to find out if their cable actually works, and if the WiFi is open to customer selection, compared to reports of other campground.

I'm ok with Branson Stagecoach RV Park if thatís what is decided on.
The web site is a little lacking in content. Would have liked to see more for the grounds.
Tried to look it up on Google Maps & found the address but when I clicked on satellite view I donít see a campground. Went to street view & again no campground.

Hey Iggy, any chance of you calling this one too tomorrow or some one making personal contact with these people? What do you think Gary? can you make a call?
I find just one fault with the stagecoach place is only 30 days ahead to make a reservation. Does that mean they don't do that much business? if so why not? Just wondering..Seems like if it was a real busy place they'd want reservations earlier so they could make sure we were all in the same neighborhood. What do ya think?

If I remember correctly, Branson Stagecoach RV Park is the old KOA before they moved closer to town, has a long hill to get to the bottom campground, and like all other campgrounds the campers are close together. But i'm in, it's closer to trout fishing. Anyone can look at a campgrounds on Google earth and get a good idea of what a campground looks like.

From what i read of their reply, they will take an estimate of the number of people attending, and reserve that amount. Then, we have to make reservations 30 days beforehand. Within two weeks of time, any empty sites, will be given to the general public.

I wish we could say yes now, but we'll have to wait. My wife works at a hospital and they like her to turn in her request for time off about month ahead of time. Depends on patient load and available staff. I work for the prison system and it depends on how the "natives" are acting around that time before I will know if I can make "parole" or not.

I can call the campground if need be. It will be late tomorrow afternoon before I can though.

From up here America's Best Campground looks to be in better shape.
