Since I often do reviews when I go camping, I thought I’d do an article about some of our experiences at John S. Swift Explorer Base. Swift is located at S -F Scout Ranch near Farmington, Missouri.
A review of our troop’s week of Boy Scout summer camp at Camp Drake in eastern Illinois, near Champaign-Urbana.
A few weeks ago our troop camped at Johnson Shut-Ins State Park in southern Missouri. The campground was completely rebuilt following the Taum Sauk hydroelectric power station disaster in 2005.
Our Boy Scout troop recently had a family campout at Washington State Park. I recommend this campground. There was definitely plenty to do and see there and we had a great time. I’m sure we’ll be going back.
I would definitely recommend this campground. The neighborhood felt very safe and it was definitely a more economical way for the six of us to visit New Orleans than staying in a hotel.
Overall, this was a good campground because of the location and all of the attractions in the area, but the bugs were a real annoyance.
Overall, I’d recommend this park for camping, but you might want to bring some earplugs and bug spray.
