The fact that it is near Knoxville is about the only thing going for it. The campground is mostly long or full timers; not very neat; sites are uneven gravel; tight; poor amenities; steep areas; not pretty and not inexpensive.
The bad news: pads are nicely paved but narrow, and perpendicular to the road (rather than angled) making entry unnecessarily difficult. The placement of wooden poles at each site aggravates the problem (at least for longer travel trailers). No good place for parking cars mashing the roadway look like a parking lot. The good news: lots of large trees, good spacing between pads, extensive grass for kids to play, good amenities for families, great location and easy to get to and easy access to Lexington and attractions.
Although we normally prefer a State or National campgrounds, this relatively small campground served us very well. We enjoyed both Minneapolis and Saint Paul so much that we stayed 8 days rather than the planned 3. The campground was quiet, very clean and pleasant. Also good access to both cities. Close to great shopping and restaurants.
Have to give a five star rating - our stay was incredibly beautiful. I think we had the best site in the park - lakeside # 110. Quite private for a campsite and it backed onto a small but very pretty lake. Lots to do in the Park, and accessible to both Omaha and Lincoln along Route 80. The Park is very well maintained. Also loved Omaha - great city to explore.
The bad news: it is right on Highway 55 and there is a fair amount of highway noise; also it is a bit tight. The good news: it is pristine with trees, grass, very nice small picnic tables and a picnic area. It is about 25 miles into Saint Louis but a very easy trip down - highway 55. Overall a good value and nice place to stay.
