Campground was really nice, Full hook and spots were not spaced too close together, Staff was really friendly and nice. Restrooms were clean and they even had a little laundryroom. Cave tour was neat but pricy. Fortunately they do have a military discount so basically our grandson was free. Afterwards we went to the In The Hallow restaurant right across the street which was wonderful. Great food at a reasonable price. Lady at the counter was just so sweet and friendly! All the Mark Twain stuff is just down the road a few miles so it was a perfect place for us to camp.
Stayed one night. Not the nicest place [a little rough around the edges] but quiet. So tired of paying $30+ and being between railroad tracks and freeway. Bathrooms were clean but only two washers and dryers. Park was not even half full
One of our favorite camp grounds. The winery is within walking distance. Hannibal is an awesome town as well.
We stayed on a Tuesday night in a 24' Class C. The office was closing at 6pm, but we got there in time (not sure what procedure is used after hours). They were friendly and quite accommodating for helping us find a level spot, and even gave us the option to change spots once we drove in (and call them back with our final spot). It is a large facility with many spots. The playground was nice. There were quite a few mosquitoes, etc that evening, so have bug spray available. The showers were the nicest we've ever seen, nicely tiled and well kept. We would stay here again.
We stayed at Mark Twain Cave Campground for 4 nights. It is sad because you can tell that at one time this was a great campground. But due to years of no preventative maintenance it has gone downhill. The roads used to be paved but the pavement has deteriorated thru neglect then they put gravel on top of the old pavement, but the roads are ruff. The pads are also gravel but they need new gravel so the sites are mostly dirt. Needless to say it was very dusty. Thank goodness it didn't rain because then it would be mud. Our sewer hookup did not have a cap, just a rock over it. The bathrooms were clean but needed some work. The staff was very nice and helpful. The campground was very quiet and was in a very pretty area. This campsite was not worth the $32 a night for full hookups due to the rundown conditions. If this campground was properly maintained I would gladly pay their prices.
This park has both shaded and open sites. Since we did not need a sewer hookup, we were able to get a nice shaded site because it was unbearably hot (97-99 degrees) the two days we were there. The campground is in a low hollow and roads and sites are mostly dirt and a little gravel, so it can get muddy if much rain. The wi-fi is a joke and is so slow that you can not get anything on Internet. Also phone reception is good, but unable to get data on Verizon network anywhere in Hanibal. I called Verizon and they said my hot spots were malfunctioning and needed to be repaired. However, they both worked fine once we got out of Hanibal area. The park only has two washing machines and dryers for the entire park so we were lucky that the park was almost empty. Not a great stop, but it is convenient to Mark Twain museum etc.
Okay, but pretty difficult to find
Very good campground. A nice mix of campsites, big rigs, travel trailers, and tent sites. We chose a back in near the creek. The cave tour is alot of fun. The town has alot of history.
This park needs some maintenance. Interior roads are ruff and sites need to be leveled. Connections are ok and there is plenty of areas for walking pets. Staff was friendly and gave good information about the area. Short drive to shopping and restaurants. Even with the cons I would stay here again if on the area. I would suggest looking at your site before paying. We stayed in a motorhome.
We had a wonderful time. Nice wooded lot. Nice people.
Ok these workers all need customer service training. Rude people who don't know who the paying customers are and that service to us is what matters.
Overall, the campground was just blah. We will likely not be back because even though the campground was not full, they still assigned campers to sites directly adjoining other campers instead of leaving some room for privacy and enjoyment. This caused someone's sewer hookup to be right next to our picnic table. The bathrooms were clean. We didn't use the showers because we had full hookups. The laundry facility was acceptable, but two of the machines were out of order. The admission price for the Mark Twain Cave was $20 per adult and $10 per child. We didn't go see it. If you re coming through the area or if you are really interested in seeing Mark Twain s childhood hometown and museum, then this is an okay campground to park at. CoxFamilyTravels

Super close to downtown Hannibal. Has cave, deli, winery and hiking path all on site. Enjoyed our stay and exploring Hannibal. Some sites not really level/long enough for bigger rigs. Try to get pull through site.
Wonderful camp, great staff. Level lot, shared a water connection with our neighbor but no issues, except had to use two hoses. Really convenient to all the Hannibal events. We ll be back.
We stayed at the campground during our visit to Hannibal, which is about five minutes by car from the campground. The campground is well kept with good sized gravel pads and space between sites. Full hookup sites are $35 per night. Only issue we ha, which looks to be the case for most of the site around the outside, is the sewer hookup is about 25'. Other than that friendly staff, clean facilities and ok WIFI.
