Convenient and Quiet

We spent 7 days here in our Travel Trailer primarily for the easy beach access. This place has a wonderful wooden well-kept private boardwalk to the beach, it's about a 5 minute walk from most spaces in the park. It's a pretty quiet RV park, just be sure to get a space away from the main highway out front.

Spaces are pretty narrow but well maintained; we had no trouble getting into/out of our space. With almost no trees here our satellite television reception worked very well, but I couldn't get any network television channels with the roof-top antenna guess they are too far away in Corpus Christi. There is a charge to use the cable tv service. Also electricity is billed separately; we spent $16 on electricity over 7 days so just over $2 per day for 30 amp service. There is daily trash service right at your parking spot. Wifi is slow most of the time because there are so many other guests using it; the smartphone was pretty slow but the laptop computer much faster. There is a small RV store in the office area, mainly just the basic essentials. Really nice laundry service with lots of machines although we thought the cost was a bit higher than most. There is a huge rec hall with daily/weekly social events, and a really nice game room. Propane is also sold on-site. There are numerous RV maintenance companies in the local area that will perform service (or cleaning) right at your rig on-site.

This place has just about everything you could ask for in an rv beach resort, yes I would stay here again but there are also a few other choices in the area that seem excellent as well.

Disappointing

Stayed here only one night passing thru Waco on my way to S. Texas. Could not get the cable tv to work at all, good thing I had satellite reception to fall back on. Wi-Fi did not work at all, good thing I had a data plan on the smartphone to fall back on. Gravel sites are ok, but standing water and water puddles are not. The office seemed very unorganized; I don't think they get many visitors but primarily are setup to handle their permanent residents.

On the plus side it was off the main highways so very very quiet at night. There are other choices in the area, I'd suggest checking those out before stopping here especially for an extended amount of time. I would not stay here again.

Everything you need

Convenient to all Branson attractions yet still a very quiet and comfortable place to spend one night or a few days. No more than 5 minutes to the main road thru the city of Branson, this place has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Easy access off the state highway 165, it's about one half mile back so there isn't any highway noise at night.

Level sites, plenty of shade, relatively large spaces for your rig compared to many. Excellent cable television lineup (48 channels), and pretty good wifi. Propane is available on-site at a very competitive price.

Most of the sites are gravel, there was one very rainy day while we spent 5 days here; it was pretty noticeable that more gravel was needed at our site. It wasn't muddy but a little wet with some puddling in a few spots.

We stayed here in our travel trailer and yes would stay here again. Beware of falling acorns during the Fall season!

Great view of Beaver Lake

The campground is pretty basic, with electric only on-site. Quite a bit of shade, every site has a picnic table. There are several fresh water faucets thru the loop if you need to fill your fresh tank, but know where they are located before you pull into your site to avoid having to loop around again. The dump station is just outside the campground if needed. The campground itself is quite hilly however the RV sites are mostly level or nearly level. Most of the sites are back-in, a few are pull-thru.

There is no cable tv, no wi-fi but a nice place to get away from things and have a wonderful view of the lake, waterfowl, fishing boats, marina, etc. There is a short hiking trail near the campground that circles around back to the campground, it's about 5 miles in length, somewhat hilly in spots but not strenuous. It offers some beautiful views if you enjoy hiking.

Wonderful state park

If you're looking to get away from the rat race this is a great park to visit for a few days. Extremely quiet park with a small stream running adjacent the campground, a few waterfalls, and some great hiking trails. Sites are very level, most are paved. Full hookups on-site, somewhat rare with most state parks. No cellular service in the park (enjoy the solitude), no wi-fi service in the park, only 2 tv channels on my antenna. It was great to get away for 4 nights here, a bit pricey for a state park but we would stay here again.

Best park in the area

An excellent park with everything needed for a great stay. Great wi-fi, very good cable tv, spacious level sites, very convenient to the Badlands NP. A bit pricey compared to others in the area but also offers more. Lots of shade, that's important because it gets very hot in this area of SD. Easily in/out, most all of the sites are pull-thru. Yes we would stay here again.

Not Great

Good for an overnight stay but a pretty run down campground. Sites need some attention and general clean up. Convenient location, wi-fi works fine, no cable tv service but a few channels with antenna. Would not stay here again, keep driving for something better if spending more than one night.

Excellent

There are numerous campgrounds in the Custer area, you cannot go wrong with this one. Very quiet, quite spacious sites, excellent wi-fi service, excellent cable tv service, swimming pool and water slide on-site Most sites offer some shade, although not fully shaded either. There is some dust in the park, the roads are gravel and the sites also gravel with plenty of grass...or in our case not very much gravel, mostly dust. It wasn't a big problem but it could be if there was rain, that site could have been muddy. The dust itself wasn't a big problem, we were there in summer so the AC was running and the windows on the travel trailer closed the entire time.

The park is located about 3 miles outside of Custer making it very quiet yet very accessible to the city of Custer, only about 5 minutes drive. There are plenty of sites for big rigs, many of which are pull-thru. We enjoyed watching the rabbits that live on-site wander around nibbling at the grass; don't worry they're not pests and make absolutely no noise or cause any problems.

Yes we would stay here again, it's a very good campground with plenty of on-site amenities and conveniently located.

Good for overnight stop

Easily accessible, fairly level sites, very quiet. Wi-fi service very good, no cable tv service but a few channels are available with antenna. This is a good stop for one night stay onwards to your final destination.

Good for overnight stop

We stayed here en route to our final destination. There aren't many options in the St Louis area. This park is a bit off the highway (maybe 4 miles) but easily accessible and quite large sites. We had no problem in our pull-thru site and it was very level. Most of the sites seem to be occupied by semi-permanent or long-term residents. No cable tv but the St Louis stations are easily accessible by antenna, wi-fi service was very good. I would highly recommend the on-site Sawmill BBQ restaurant, especially the beef brisket. Yes we would stay here again.
