We were there in July 2009 with a caravan of 14 units and we stayed at the KOA and were very happy with it, They treated us very well, and we were very close to all the attractions. They also had a shuttle for those who did not have transportation other than their RV. Their price was comparable with other resorts in the area.
We would recommend it any time and we would go back if the opportunity presents itself.

We stayed at Musicland Kampground when we visited Branson last July.

The campground like others in the area is somewhat hilly but we had a nice site toward the rear of the park that was large and flat. There is a helicopter tour that takes off from near the front of the campground making that part of the campground noisy during the day. But the sites in the back were not bothered by the copter and were quiet.

Hi s.j.sharks,
This is another vote for the KOA. After trying several of the other CGs this is where we stay whenever in Branson. Close to the "strip", easy in and out. Decent size sites (trees or no trees mention this when you reserve). If you are over 40', several CGs need to be avoided. Let us know if this is the case.

Once there, get a map of the ares at the CG office. Learn the two back roads the lead the to shows. You'll enter/exit the show parking lots from the rear of their property. Experiencing driving the strip once is enough for any person.

We stayed at "America's Best Campground" and were very happy. The folks there were very friendly and heplful to the sights in the area. Lots of space, sights were not crowded. We definately will stay there again when were are in Branson.

We were there in Nov. and stayed at Ozark Country Campground. Liked it very much. They only have 3 or 4 pull through sites but the back in sites were easy. Smaller park but nice. Owners are very friendly and helpful, including a escort to your site. It's next to the Lawrence Welk entertainment facility on Quebec St. NOTE: my Streets and Trips wanted to take me to the wrong side of town even though it had the correct address. Garman took us right there.

We stayed at the city park on the river. It's adequate, but I would stay elsewhere if you can get in. Bridge construction going on at the entrance area and the sites were dirt/small gravel. While you are on the river, and can easily walk to the riverfront tourist area, it's noisy with constant street traffic over the river.

We stayed at Branson View Campground. Just a little out of town so very quiet but convenient to everything.

We have been to branson 3 times in 2 years and all 3 times we stayed at Stagecoach RV Park. It is a Passport America park and if you are a PA member it will cost you about $20 a night. That saves money for downtown spending. All sites are back-in, double wide. There is an on-site resturant, mexican, but we did not really like it. It is about an 8 mile ride into town but it is scenic. They have a free shuttle if you are so inclined.

If you are not a PA member and decide to join, send me a PM and I'll give you my PA number for credit. PA is $44 a year and in 4 nights time at Stagecoach you have 100% return for your money.

Also the rest room facilites/showers are remodeled and well maintained.

Happy trails.

Sholes Bend Campground, which is east of Branson. You are away from the crowds.

We stayed at the Tall Pines CG in Aug '09 and enjoyed it very much. Pretty decent location and also a Passport America park.
