Thompson's RV Park

Located in the central inland of southern Missouri, Thompson's RV Park has several different types of units available for visitors to occupy, which are as follows: 28 RV sites, 4 cabins, and 1 apartment-style home. Nancy, the current manager of the establishment, strives to create a community-oriented atmosphere at the park by making an effort to treat her guests like family. In addition to this, Nancy tries to offer assistance with anything from setting up RVs to providing advice and guidance on local attractions. One of the most prominent attractions that can be found in fairly close proximity to Thompson's RV Park is Bennett Springs State Park, where people can go fishing for trout. Generally speaking, the property's vicinity is relatively rural and wooded.


Thompson's RV Park is a campground located three miles away from Bennett Springs State Park—a popular trout fishing destination. The park sits on roughly 10 acres of land and has 28 RV sites, 4 cabins, and 1 apartment house for guests to reserve. It should also be noted that tent camping is available to visitors as well. With regard to the amenities supplied in the cabins, each one is fully furnished with one bedroom, a TV, fireplace, mini-fridge, microwave, fire pit, and picnic table. As for the two-bedroom apartment house, this unit is fully furnished and includes a kitchen, dining room, and living room. Though the park does not offer WiFi or laundry facilities, those who stay at the park are given access to a shower house over the course of their stay. 

A grassy area with trees and a white picket fence can be found on the premises, where visitors can walk their dogs and play with their pets. In addition to the grassy area, the park also has a gazebo that guests can use to relax and enjoy the scenery. Wooded areas and trees surround the park, which can provide shade and privacy. Moreover, across the street from the park, a store and a laundry mat can be found.

Thompson's RV Park is situated in an area that offers guests a variety of recreational activities to enjoy. One of the most popular nearby attractions is Bennett Springs State Park, located three miles from the park. Bennett Springs State Park is known primarily for its trout fishing, according to Nancy, the manager of Thompson's RV Park. For those who enjoy golfing, the park is also located near a golf course that offers 18 holes and a driving range. Nancy also suggests that her patrons visit the Civic Center, which offers various events and activities throughout the year. Guests can visit the nearby town of Bennett and enjoy its many restaurants as well, including Mexican, barbecue, and Chinese cuisine. One specific dining option that Nancy recommends is Bandana's Bar-B-Q in Lebanon.


The manager of Thompson's RV Park, Nancy, takes pride in her work, and she enjoys meeting people. "We want to make sure everybody's very comfortable and very happy here," Nancy remarks. In an effort to provide this experience for their guests, the property offers RV storage for patrons to leave their vehicles, either during the off-season or just for a weekend. The establishment's security service monitors this RV storage area in an effort to prevent theft or damage to anyone's RV. 

Although there are no organized activities at the park, campers can enjoy getting together for campfires and cookouts, which are held periodically to provide opportunities for people to socialize and get to know each other. Nancy intends to help visitors at Thompson's RV Park "feel like family." One former patron who had a positive experience at the establishment commented in a review, saying, "The manager, Nancy, is very accommodating, on the go, and always keeping the campground clean. She made us feel at home."

In terms of guidelines, Nancy says that she has a "zero-tolerance policy for drugs." The park also has a policy against smoking in the cabins, and guests are requested to use designated smoking areas. As a further effort to create a peaceful atmosphere, quiet hours are designated from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. every night. Nancy believes that the property's location in a natural setting may also contribute to creating a peaceful atmosphere. Furthermore, for the safety of visitors, there is a speed limit of five miles per hour within the park to prevent any accidents or injuries. Thompson's RV Park is pet-friendly, but pets are required to be on a leash at all times, and owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets. There is also a pet deposit fee charged for pets staying in the cabins. Thompson's RV Parks guidelines pertaining to grounds cleanliness require guests to leave their sites clean and tidy upon departure and to dispose of their garbage in the designated trash cans. Campers should also be aware that the property has a trash pickup service available.

Open year-round, Thompson's RV Park most commonly experiences its busiest season of operation during the summer. The park's primary demographic is middle-aged to older individuals as well as many repeat visitors and long-term guests. 


Nancy, the manager of Thompson's RV Park, has been working in the RV park industry for five years and managing Thompson's RV Park for three years. She retired from her former job in the hotel industry and was drawn to RV park management because she loves being active and helping people.

Thompson's RV Park has undergone several changes over the years to improve the experience for guests. One significant change that the owners have made is the addition of water houses for each site, which are equipped with insulated pipes to prevent the water from freezing during the winter months. This improvement has allowed Thompson's RV Park to remain open year-round, whereas many other RV parks in the area close down during the winter season. Another change that was made to the property was the repainting of all the buildings and cabins. Additionally, the owners have added fire pits to each cabin, providing a new amenity for people to enjoy during their stay. Overall, the changes that have been made to Thompson's RV Park have been aimed at improving the guest experience and making the park more comfortable for those who stay there, as explained by Nancy.

Concerning future plans, the owners would like to add a washer and dryer facility, which Nancy believes would be a convenient addition for those who are staying for an extended period of time. In addition to this, Nancy hopes to keep up with the standard maintenance of the park.
