  • Great mini-vacation 2 hrs from home. Campground is well run, attended to and clean (bathrooms and grounds). Stayed at a Family Puma campground site with 2 other families, all staff is family-oriented and friendly. Kayaking, a wonderful first-time experience, offered FREE two weekends per month in summer on Tom Sawyer Lake. Naturalist outings planned at amphitheater weekly. Nice (and air conditioned) M.Twain museum on grounds to visit; HUGE sandy beach, plenty of places to fish and picnic! Few cons: no soap in bathrooms all weekend, one electric outlet dysfunctional even after electrician came out, and the campsite seemed small for being advertised as "family" for 12 people. Even with these details, no major complaints! We will be back!
  • Lovely park, but bring your own tent or RV! We brought bedbugs back from one of the cabins. Yuch.
  • Enjoyed my visit and stay. Stayed in a sleeper cabin on the puma camping loop. The cabin exceeded my expectations, it has air conditioning and plenty of space to sleep up to five or six people. It was within walking distance to the water, and I enjoyed some fishing and hiking. They have firewood purchasable on site as well as 7 and 20 pound bags of ice. Overall the trip was pretty great.
  • It was quiet, decently clean and kept up, and decently roomy. The lake is amazing.
  • A long ways away from anywhere... Worth a detour only if you have time and patience to get there. Even though the house is technically the original birth house, its current setting underneath a curved dome is out of place and odd, like you're looking at a recreated museum piece. But the video about Mark Twain's life is interesting and the original "Tom Sawyer" manuscript on display is cool.
