Can't help you there, but we are currently staying at the table rock lake state park & marina--pretty nice place. We are a little out of place in our 40' DP but the lots are huge and very nice. Wish they were more level though.

Being that we have 3 kids, we always stay at Silver Dollar City's Wilderness campground. Already been once in late May, will be back there in 2 weeks. They have a shuttle service to the park and back. Easier than unhooking and driving the coach there. Plus, we normally have our two labs with us so I'd have to run the generator all day. We don't tow a toad, as I still have 18 more years till I can retire. :-)

Check out Oak Grove RV Park. Very conveniently located without the hustle & bustle. We stayed there last Fall and were very satisfied. We would do so again.

I've stayed there several times in the past but always with a popup. Very few spots in Branson are level. Take your golf clubs... Lots of great golf courses there.

I hear you on leveling in Branson. We stayed at ABC in Branson and had a hard time getting our previous DP level. My current rig has air leveling only and does has limits. We have reserved a 'premier' site at Compton Ridge and they say they are concrete pads for big rigs. I would think if you pour a concrete pad for a motorhome, you would make it pretty level.

We just got back from 2 week stay in Branson. If you can stay in Table rock camp ground state park, i would advise that park 1st. They just redid area with the nicest full hookups I been at. We loved the space we got and the price was very nice. After the few days we bookdr ran out of our full hookup we choose to move to A SPOT WITHOUT sewer and filled out water tank but had electric. Sites are big spacious views in park were amazing as well as fishing for trout. we ended up staying 10 more days. Table rock is 10 min away from all the action and their are campgrounds closer but the campgrounds we rode in to check out you were packed like sardines and loose gravel. Tablerock had nice cement pads and long driveways. We loved it and rode from Pa to Branson to experience it all.

This is where we stayed 11 nights last year and 4 nights next month. Welcome to Branson Stagecoach Campground - WELCOME HOME If you are PA member the rate is good for all nights.

Sites are level and 1/2 of sites are concrete pad. Short drive to main drag and shows.

smlranger,

We stayed at Compton's Ridge last week. We received the card from them offering a 4 day/3 night stay if we would listen to their sales spill for 90 minutes. First they put us in the oldest part of the park... which was marked with several signs as reserved for members. Old... dirt/gravel sites... rotting timbers and tables.... trees needed to be trimmed as they were way too low..... only others in this area were a work camper and a couple of trailers that were not in use. To get into our assigned spot, we had to come in through a site across the street in order to get into the site. To get out, we were expected to make a hard left hand turn and go down a steep hill and make a hairpin turn to the right at the same time to head out of the area. I opted to cut through a site across the street and down a slightly less steep hill to get out. There was a sign leading to this part of the park that identified the area as the Dog Park and Poo Zoo. The other parts of the park were nice enough with concrete pads and some pull through sites, but most sites are back ins. The park has some nice amenities... an indoor pool and an outdoor pool... walking trails and a nice convenience store that is nicely stocked. If you go... make sure you get into the newer part of the park not in the Poo Zoo.
The sales staff was very nice, but $13K for a membership plus $459 a year was a bit much... and it is one of those "buy now or don't come back" kinda places, even the sales manager to put the pressure on...LOL All in all... I guess it was ok... but by being banished to the Poo Zoo right off the bat left a bad taste in my mouth. I guess you get what you pay for..... but if I was trying to sell something to someone, I would try to put my best foot forward...

Russ...
You are one one clever writer - you put Poo - taste in mouth - and foot in it - all in a burning brown paper bag on the sales managers door step. Well played sir. Well played...

We reserved a 'Premium' site in what they referred to as their Main Campground. Those sites are listed as 50 amp, concrete pads, big rig friendly. I have no interest in hearing any sales pitch and will tell them so if approached. We reserved online and got an email that we would get confirmation shortly. We did not get the confirmation email and called them, got an answering service so left a message. No one called back all day today. So I called again tonite and finally got a real person and she confirmed the reservation. I was not terribly impressed with their reservation process.

We are only going to be there two full days so I hope it is OK.

smlranger,

Since you are going to stay there, I wish you well and I am sure you will be ok.... if going in to Branson... use the 465 bypass and come in off 65 onto Main Street... this will save you many minutes of sitting in traffic along 76.... DW said to visit the Stone Hill Winery store... her favorite place in Branson...lol
