We stayed here one night while passing through the area. We did not use the restrooms, WI-FI, laundry or TV services. This park is a good place to spend the night while passing through. It is far enough off of the interstate that traffic noise is less of an issue than at other parks we've visited. Our gravel site was almost perfectly level and connections were easy. There is no "camp store" as such so you should bring whatever you need. The lady who owns the camp is extremely nice and helpful... Read More

The price is right and the location is good. Would stay here again.

Great little campground. Sites are easy to get into and its super quiet out there. The owner is a very nice lady, goes out of her way to help customers when needed. She loaned us a ladder and drill so I could install a few airmax covers. Has a great laundry and restroom setup. We camped here many times since May 2015 will continue to camp there when we visit our family there in Joplin.
