Branson KOA- Campground Review

four starsOverall Rating: Nearly Perfect

 

We stayed for several days at the Branson, MO, KOA – Mar 2015, while we attended the KOA Boot Camp.  This was the first time we had ever been to Missouri, and were very excited to not only learn more about KOA, but experience the city of Branson.

We were welcomed at the front entranceway by a miniature Elvis himself!  Cute!

Branson was going to be lots of fun!

three starsSetting:  I have to say right off that I might have had a different impression at a different time of the year.  We were put in a Premium Full Hook up Site near the campground’s Convention Center.

A large part of this particular campground is placed along the side of a steep hill, with each campsite terraced above the one below.  The premium sites were separated by white picket fences and included picnic tables.

Those that do not get around well might have issues exploring this campground due to the terrain.

It worked well for us as we were only there for a few days, and didn’t spend a ton of time outside, however, for those that are there to enjoy the camping experience, the lots were pretty small.

I do have to say that there was a large variety of spots, many of which were plenty big enough for larger rigs, and plenty of room for maneuvering.

And along with the variety of spots, there were several Deluxe spots that included grills and patios.  These were particularly nice.

In season, they also offer free breakfast, and food service including pizza, hot wings, fudge and ice cream brought to your campsite.

This is one of the fun perks of KOA!

five starsStaff was friendly and available to help out if needed.  They made a great first impression by meeting us at the front gate and directing us inside.  They were quite knowledgable about the area.  The office can even get you discount tickets at some of the shows and attractions in Branson!

four starsDog Friendly– This campground had a very nice fenced in area for the dogs.  Walking the dogs was enjoyable and there were plenty of areas in the campground to take them to.

The positives?  Great park!  Very near downtown Branson and all it has to offer.  In my opinion, it is a great place to stay if you are in town to enjoy Branson.  In season, there is plenty to offer in the park to keep the kids entertained.

Any negatives?  Well, I really hesitate to say this because it truly isn’t the fault of the campground, but this area of the country can be quite volatile in the spring and summer.  While we were there, we were holed up in the RV each evening while thunderstorms, hail and potential tornados made their way through.

We ate dinner the first night looking out the window as hail the size of marbles came down on our VW bug and motorhome. (No damage- unless you want to count the indigestion…)

For the record, Branson KOA does not offer a tornado shelter.

  1. We had no difficulty connecting to the WiFi either but found the speed to diminish with every new arrival. In the end, it was almost unusable. Just one of my pet peeves 🙂
