Campground Review-Ozark Country Campground

campground sites with motorhome, jeep, airstream and truck
Ozark Country Campground
Branson, MO
Stayed: Nov. 2017

This was another Passport America find…and what a find! A marvelous quiet and beautiful campground.

Admittedly, a couple of turns to the campsite were a tad tight, but sites were level with decent spacing and the campground hosts very helpful. Someone leads you into your site and even though it was a pull-thru, we had to disconnect the Jeep at the office before going to the site.

Our original plan was for a couple nights with a quick trip into Branson, but Miss Emmy had other ideas. When her air system refused to work on our scheduled departure date, we had to stay an extra day and night. The folks at Ozark Country were very helpful and accommodating as we got Miss Emmy back up and running. (You can read more about that adventure in a couple earlier posts, “Brake Down” and “Two Weeks In”.)

There was a playground, pool, covered picnic/gathering area laundry room and showers. Everything seemed well cared for. (And yes. I'm writing this long after we stayed there, so minimal photos)

And when I say it was off the beaten track…be aware that one of the recommended routes to get there has many curves and no shoulder. (But it does help you avoid heavy Branson traffic!). Yes, it was very scenic...but  a little stressful to drive, especially for a couple of towing newbies! (Don't worry, we're more comfortable driving Miss Emmy with Sarge now 😉 )

paved covered picnic area and motorhome on a rainy dayOnce you’re there, you can easily get into Branson by a different route that's “kinder and gentler". That route made for a much easier departure for us too. We just waited for rush hour to pass and we were all set.

For the experience staying there, it was well worth the "scenic" drive to get to, and we would gladly stay there again.
