Very nice

Not much to add to the previous reviews. This is a very nice RV park with easy access to I70 but located well off the highway so there is no traffic noise. All gravel access roads and mostly level sites; the sites here are very close together but extremely well kept. There is no cable television, a few channels can be received using the rooftop antenna. Satellite reception would be excellent at most all sites. There is wifi available thru the entire park and reception was strong during our visit.

We stayed here 4 nights in our travel trailer and would visit again. The daily rate below reflects Good Sam discount for a full hookup site.

Beautiful and relaxing

One of the best state parks we've visited in Missouri, Johnson's Shut-Ins is surrounded by forests, hiking trails, water, and wildlife. Generous spacing exists between the individual mostly level and concrete paved full hook-up RV sites with fully paved access roads as well. There is no wifi available except at the campground store, and most cellular services are not availalbe; we were able to receive cellular service on the main entrance road and also in the parking lots near the Shut-ins trail. There are no rooftop antenna channels available but satellite service worked very well at our site as well as for other spots in the campground.

The main attraction here is swimming, and be prepared for a rocky experience if you're planning to swim in the river. Bring your water shoes and do be very careful entering and exiting the river. Take some time to hike the trails in the morning before the heat builds up. There are other state parks nearby; Elephant Rocks SP is a great day-trip visit with a short 1 mile hike thru the main quarry area that is very interesting. Taum Sauk Mountain SP is also nearby and includes the highest point in the state. The hiking here is excellent especially the waterfall trail if the falls are flowing.

We stayed here 4 nights in our travel trailer and would visit again.

Scenic and quiet

One of several COE sites scattered around Beaver Lake, the somewhat remote lake location of Hickory Creek Park makes for a fairly quiet yet still scenic campground. Sites are all back-in, some are lake front but all have very good views of the lake and associated wildlife. Generous space between most all sites, some full sun while others are partially or completely shaded. All sites have fire ring and picnic table. All sites have electricity, but no water nor sewer connections are available at campsites; fill your fresh tank on the way in. Paved access roads and sites.

Cellular service is spotty, several channels are available using the rooftop antenna, and satellite reception will be very good at many of the sites. There is no wifi anywhere in this park location.

We stayed 3 nights here in our travel trailer and would visit again.

Nice and clean

This is a well maintained and clean RV park with easy access to the interstate highway. Although near the highway the noise isn't bad, especially at night. There are many full-time residents but the sites seem to be well maintained compared to most parks you'd visit. Full hookup sites with average wifi; there is no cable tv but all major network channels are available using the rooftop antenna. Satellite will work well at most all sites. Paved access roads with gravel site pads and adjacent grassy areas. Most all sites are back-in but quite easily reached with generous space on the access road as well as between most sites. There are very few level sites so be prepared to level your RV amongst the gentle rolling hills of the park.

We stayed here one night in transit but this RV park has everything you'd need for an extended visit. There are also two storm shelters which is nice given the area and possibility of storms or tornados. We would stop here again if passing thru the area. The rate below reflects Good Sam discount for a back-in site.

Convenient location

Agree mostly with the first review posted below. There are many permanent residents in the older sections of this park however the overnight section where visitors are assigned spaces is very well kept, level, with full-hook up sites, excellent wifi service, and a robust cable television lineup. Satellite reception is excellent in the this section because there are no trees; the rest of the park has quite a few trees on many of the sites.

It's a good stop for a few days when visiting the area. We stayed here 3 nights in our travel trailer and would visit again. The rate below reflects Good Sam discount.

Clean and quiet

Located about 1/4 mile off the interstate and fairly quiet even during the evenings. One of the smaller RV parks in the Big Spring area. Many permanent residents but overall well kept and clean. Full-hook up sites with good wifi and cable tv access. Very few channels were available with the rooftop antenna but satellite reception is very good at most every site.

We spent one night here in our travel trailer passing thru the area and would visit again. It's fine for an overnight stop and has everything we needed.

Nothing like a resort

Agree with the first post below, there is nothing here resembling a resort. Simply a dusty, sandy parking lot with very basic overpriced full hook-up sites. There is no cable tv for the rv park although it's available in the adjacent hotel. There is wifi only in the main building if it is working; it will not reach to the rv park. There are a few other options in the immediate area; I would not stay here again but instead would research other possibilities if passing thru for 1-2 nights.

Quiet and remote

Not much to add to the previous reviews, we stayed 3 nights in the full hook-up RV Park which has 24 spaces that are all back-in. It's a paved parking lot, an improvement over man of the dirt/sand/gravel combo RV Parks in the local area. The water is high in sulfites, which can affect the taste and your digestion. It's ok for showering in your RV but you may want to bring along water for drinking, cooking, etc or use your fresh water tank.

We hiked the canyon trail early one morning as well as the hot springs trail, both are worthy hiking options. Do your hiking early mornings, take the afternoons for driving around when the heat is much more of a threat.

Ok for one or two nights

A bare bones no-frills RV Park that is ok for a quick overnight stay. Full hook-up sites with a few RVers that live there full-time. Gravel access road, with grassy unpaved sites that could be muddy if very wet conditions. Adjacent to Hwy 62, there is some highway noise so bring your ear plugs.

The wifi has a weak signal and was available only outside and near proximity to the wifi antenna, but not available inside of our RV. Data signal over cellular network was very strong. Satellite television should work fine at every site. Most of the major broadcast networks are available with over-the-air antenna.

We stayed here one night in our travel trailer and would stay again, although we felt the amenities were sparse for the price charged.

Excellent

A very quiet RV park in an excellent location that is convenient to everything that Pensacola has to offer but away from much of the congestion and noise. Beaches are about 30 minutes drive, the heart of the city just a few minutes as the park is located on the NW corner of Pensacola. Easy entry for any sized RV, long gravel pads although they do tend to be somewhat near each other. No highway noise day or night. Some sites with tree cover available, also full sun sites. Some leveling will be needed at most all sites.

All sites are full hookup with cable tv and a very good wifi system included in your stay. Very good laundry facilities, clean restrooms if you need them. Satellite television will work well at most sites, and if using the rooftop antenna all major networks are available.

We stayed here one full week exploring the area and would visit again.
