Sites Aren't Level
The senior price for full hookups, $15, is great. Nice park and friendly, helpful hosts. We reserved a site based on the description on Recreation.gov. The description said the site was virtually level along its length. Sounded good. But the site was very unlevel side to side. We don't carry enough blocks to level our motorhome. Misleading description apparently on most sites. Luckily it was for only one night. We would have a better chance if being level at Cracker Barrell or Walmart.

We've stayed here many times
This last time our phones were 0 bars. I quickly found out that the Wi-Fi was not free. And isn't that fast. It dropped me from the internet several times, each time I had to go-to the sign on page to get back on the internet. I'm not internet dependant but I didn't feel like I got my money's worth.

Half Price For Seniors!
This Campground is very well maintained, grass is mowed, everything is pristine. My camper has a full bath so I can't comment on the bathrooms. But the park is beautiful, clean, quiet, with little animals running all over the place! Very long paved back in parking, no drive thru's. I also discovered they had free high speed wifi. All sites have electric. We stayed in the Deer Run sites, several sites are full hookups, water, electric, and sewer. They do have a very clean dump station at the exit/entrance. With Senior pass all sites are half price. Can't beat $12 a night for full hook ups!

The campsite themselves are well spaced out, were paved, and appear to all be fairly level. Lots of shade!
Every bathroom facility i went into is in need of major renovation though. They were all run down, smelly, and dirty. They need to take a lesson from the MO state parks system, their bathroom facilities, even if they are old, are clean and maintained in my experience.
This isn't a slight against just this park but all the COE and state park at the lake, none of them had an onsite beach or one within realistic walking distance to the campground.

Several loops, one was still closed.
Sites are very spacious, blacktop driveway for your RV or vehicle, grassy, With gravel around the picnic table and fire pit. There are trees and bushes behind the sites and some between sites, so you do not feel too close to neighbors. Most sites are within walking distance of a path down to the lake. There are lots of fishermen with their boats at this campground.
All sites appear to have electric, although full hook ups are closer to the main road. Full hook up sites filled by Thursday afternoon. Sewer connection at our site was about a foot above ground.
With a federal senior pass, we paid $12 per night for full hook up.
A few miles away, around an arm of the reservoir, The corps of engineers has a wonderful visitor center, where Wi-Fi is available.

Looks like you are in the Ozarks. Many sites are within walking distance from the lake. Very busy on weekends. Might make a reservation. Many shaded sites. Friendly staff. Generally quiet campers.
