Have not been to Ozark Country but did stay at America's Best Campground and I can assure you it wasn't! It was top rated by Good Sam but we did not like it at all. Sites were very small, not level and very bumpy with big dips or holes. The staff was not helpful at all. We were very disappointed.

Only really good campground in Branson is the state park on the lake. Everyone who has visited more than once knows it so good luck getting reservations. Don't recall the actual name of the park but it is the only one with ample room. All the private parks pack them in like sardines. Only exception might be the campground associated with sliver dollar city. But I suspect that park is going to have a lot of families with kids so it could be rather noisy. I don't recall having previewed that location but we have looked at nearly all the rest of them.

We stayed at Ozark Country in May and enjoyed it. Hosts where very friendly and helpful. Lots are arranged in circle around big field with pool, bath and laundry room in center. Plenty of room to walk dogs. Sites are all shaded except for 4 premium sites in center. We didn't spend a lot of time at camp as there is so much to do in Branson. Only bad thing I remember the road to camp is narrow with a few sharp curves. We stayed here in 36 ft Montana High Country

Agree completely with HiPalm. This is our choice to stay in Branson.

I remember Ozark Country now that you describe it. It is decidedly better than most of the private campgrounds where they sardine you in. However I still think the state park is far better. Granted a little ways out of town (maybe 2 miles) but there is a LOT more room between camp sites there.


We live only about 2-2 1/2 hours from Branson and visit it several times a year. If you like Christmas Lights the Shepard on the Hills will have a drive thru that is fairly nice during the holiday season. Certainly a lot to do there. You might want to look at a day trip to Springfield, MO as well. Bass Pro Shops headquarters and museum worth the trip alone.

We used to live in Springfield. We always stayed at either Mill Creek, just south of Kimberling City, COE park or out a bit further, Old 86 campground a COE. Probably need reservations at either.

Both water and 50A. dump on site. 1/2 price with the "old age card".

Sounds like Ozark is a nice park, but EXPENSIVE! rvparkreview says $65-84. Several other parks in the 45-60 range - even KOA was max $55 and it was pretty highly rated.

I have a 43' 5er and never stay in but 1 public park. Most do not have sites that fit, too many kids running around, narrow roads, and often not full hook ups. I'm very happy they are there for those that fit in all manner. We will be at the Ozark CG next month for 2 weeks, one week friends will park their 5er beside ours. In reality, we do not camp, we explore an area from a week to 2 months and move on. Just give me a site in a CG with enough room to maneuver and FU.

Don't bother with Table Rock State Park, we had reservations, unit would not even remotely fit in site, tree limbs were not trimmed. Unit going in before us shattered his A/C cover on a tree limb. As far as I am concerned it was dirty and unkempt. Lady in charge of campground was rude, hateful and would not refund our money even though the unit would not fit, the bathroom facilities were old and unclean. I am embarrassed my home state does not begin to offer the facilities you find out west. Only hoping our newly appointed State Parks Director will clean up and modernize our states facilities. We wound up at the Branson KOA and it was very nice, ample space and clean. We will definitely stay there again.

Good info on the KOA. Thanks.


We live about 2 1/2 hours from Branson and usually make it up there at least twice a year. In particular we like taking the grandkids to the indoor water park in the winter as a special treat.

WoW pretty harsh critique. We have stayed there many times. Was just there for five days in April. One of our favorite parks. Agree the old part of campground one is pretty tight and limited hook ups. Really have to review the site description before booking. All the improved sites in campground one will handle most any rig but the sites are pretty close together. New rest rooms and shower houses were just installed on the east end of campground one May, 2017. Campground two is much newer, full hook-ups with 50 amp service, and big sites. Nice showers, rest rooms, and laundry.

Branson, either Mill Creak or old 86. Both COE parks, first cabin.

I've stayed at Tall Pines several times. I have to park up the hill in the cul-de-sac and i have to back in which is no problem.I don't know about the showers and laundry facilities as we use our own. This is located close to Silver Dollar City and the facility has lots of Pine trees. The best spots are around 50-53. There rates are around 40 dollars and they take Good Sam and Passport America which is what we use. If you are looking for consistently level ground then you don't need to go to Branson as it is very hilly and Eureka Springs is worse. There is probably more to do in the Branson area than just about any other place in the country and the people are very friendly. If it wasn't for my grandson, this area is where i would live. I'll be there for about 3 weeks in October.
