We were here for 3 days and had a decent experience overall. We were put in the newer section with asphalt pads, water and 30 amp power. The grounds were high with grass and it appeared to be quite a while since the campsites were policed, most of the grills were crooked or falling over and filthy. Bathroom was clean and well stocked with metal toilets and a push button in shower that would give you 3 minutes of water at a time. Base had good commissary and BX as well as a nice asphalt track/bike trail that went all around the base. The FamCamp book said go in the commercial gate, DO NOT GO IN THE COMMERCIAL GATE. They no longer allow RVs to go through that gate, you must use one of the main gates, they are not blocked in any way, so easy to get through. Day trips to St Louis are just a 30 Minute ride and worth the trip. I would recommend staying here but stay in the gravel area of the CG, lots of shade and close to bathroom. Overall we had a good experience at this CG, with a little more attention to detail this could be among one of the better FamCamps.
