Stayed here for one night. It was pretty empty but perfectly fine for a day or two. There a very few amenities but the cable TV was very good. Wifi was spotty. It was quiet and clean so I have no complaints.

Thank you for your review, we take pride in the property and make every attempt to make your stay a memorable one. The Wifi was recently up graded to offer a better signal, what most people fail to realize is the RV itself is the biggest problem to getting wifi signal as the RV will block most and sometimes all...

We have come here for Marian days 3 years now. Shower and bathroom facilities are clean. Laundry room was very convenient. However, we feel like the staff was somewhat prejudice as they were not the most friendly OR helpful towards us. Will not be using this campground for future visits. These people dont seem to be welcoming to Asian culture.... More

Thank You so much for taking the time to write a review. We take great pride in keeping the facilities clean as well as the landscape and sites. The way RV parks operate is no different than ours when you check the site is based on two people for the going rate, children over 12 are considered as adults thus... More

We changed our travel plans and didn't check this RV park out like we had our previously planned stops. The site was OK, but do not let them put you in the back. Our lot was #39 and it was really close to their burning barrel. Don't know if they were burning garage or what, but it STUNK and made... More

Thank You for your review. We don't have a burn barrel and as explained to you when you asked if I was aware that there was a fire out back I explained that we where burning tree limbs. This fire was better than 200 feet from all the sites. You never said that it smelled or irritated your eyes not... More

We did enjoy our stay here but this park has no extras. No pool, no activities, no playgrounds, no camp store. Not even ice. If you forget anything you wlll have to run to the walmart and get it. On the up side the restrooms are clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The other downsides are the... More

Will not come here again no road noise but way too much gun shot noise. Gravel pads and our dish could not be put up due to trees. Not kid friendly either. It amazes me how these type of RV parks look so good on the internet. Pretty pricey to for the amenities. Construction going on too.

This campground is quiet and has super friendly people running it. After several previous campgrounds that were near railroad tracks or big trucking/industrial sites, the quiet was wonderful. Easy access to attractions in Carthage, including the Route 66 Drive-In. Most of the roads and sites are gravel, but fairly level. This is not the fanciest, most up-to-date campground, but the...

We stayed here one night early season. The park is quiet and away from the expressway, yet convenient (driving distance) to shopping and restaurants. Our site was level. Bath facilities were OK. WiFi was non-functional. While there were connections available, I tried them with multiple devices and could not get any of them to maintain connection for more than about... More

We went to this park with a rally group. We enjoyed the quiet park with a very friendly staff. We were able to find a decent satellite view to get TV channels on, even though the park has decent cable selections. The park wifi only worked early in the morning but at times, when the park was empty, was able... More

This place is way overrated. I don't know how some people have rated it so highly. We stayed here in our motorhome for one night. It's quiet, shady and the sites are level, but the bathrooms are extremely outdated and in major need of renovation. Some of the streets and all of the sites we saw were gravel. There was... More

Thank you Amelia, Your review is appreciated, all of the sites and most roads are gravel it helps with permeating the water which hard surface such as blacktop and concrete will not offer. The restrooms although outdated are extremely clean, there are plans for updating them this winter. As for the wasp nest, the very moment you mentioned it the... More
