This is a very well kept park. Our tent camp site had electricity but not water at the site it was about 5 sites down. We had a nice time the camp sites are not on top of each other so you do have some privacy. The shower house is not good just because the water is cold and just... More

Campsites clean and spacious, not on top of neighbors! Park personnel & host friendly, courteous and helpful. showers & restrooms clean & mostly conveniently located. Absolute only complaint (and minor) is water not convenient & serve multiple campsites.

Beautiful, quiet place to relax even if you aren't camping. Great place to ride your bike, as the main roads are blacktop with low speed limit.

Camping at Truman is always great. 4th of July is fun...the fireworks display makes it even more exciting. The fall camping during Heritage days is always great.

Wonderful camping trip with my family. The restroom/shower houses were super clean. Campground hosts are very friendly and willing to offer assistance whenever needed.

We rented a boat here for $60 /half day. It was fun for the kids to be out on the water fishing and swimming. You can rent fishing poles and minnows too.

The area was very nice. Well maintained, clean, friendly staff. The fireworks show over the dam was excellent. The local authorities did a great job managing the traffic after the event.
