Compton Ridge Campground – Branson, MO
Passing thru Branson on the way to Texas and points south we had the opportunity to spend a couple of days at Compton Ridge Campground.
This campground is located about five miles from the Branson strip, it’s just far enough away to give you the feel of leaving the all the traffic, noise and bright lights far behind you.
The campground consists of two areas… the main park and “north park” (2 block north of the main park). Main park is a little more “lively” while north park is on the quite side. The property has over 200 sites, some gravel and others with concrete pads. Most of the property and the sites are in wooded areas, so there’s always plenty of shade. Some sites even have covered picnic tables. There’s a good selection of full hook-up sites (30/50 amps) including cable TV. If you’ve got a big rig you may have a little difficulty manuvering thru a few tight spots around the park.
The general atmosphere is friendly and the sites are relatively clean and cozy. The staff was accommodating and check-in was painless. There’s a respectable list of amenities that include 2 outdoor pools and a heated indoor pool, a 500 seat meeting room, tennis courts, laundry and campstore. Rental trailers are also available. Facilities were clean, but could use a bit of touch-up here and there.
This is Branson so there are tons of things to see and do within a short distance of the campground. You can purchase tickets for many of the attractions right at the campground.
Compton Ridge is one of the better Branson area campgrounds, reasonably priced and a good value. I would recommend it as a great home base if you plan to explore Branson and the surrounding area.
