Whippoorwill Lake Campground was a nice, clean place to stay. It is a privately owned facility that have very nice owners. The 12 acre lake was nice to swim in. They also have a big beach area, with a hard maple on one end to sit under if you’re trying to dodge the sun while watching the kids swim. You can also fish in the lake.
Rustic cabins, tent sites, and RV sites are available at this campground. The RV sites are spacious but are a little uneven in spots. The owner advised no outside wood could be brought in for the firepits. They did supply free firewood but it wasn’t very good. It burned quick and you had to pay for more firewood if needed.
Each RV site had a picnic table that could be moved around to your liking. That was great, since some places weren’t very level. The bathrooms were small but looked like they were being upgraded. Showers with hot water and flushable toilets were available.
RV sites were along one side, instead of being “around” the lake. Also, some of the tent sites are on a slope. There is a play area for kids which isn’t very big. They also have a nice open pavillion with a jukebox that would be fun for a gathering.
We enjoyed ourselves and would go back again for another stay, but are eager to try other places around Missouri.
