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 It's quiet, shady and the sites are level, but the bathrooms are extremely outdated and in major need of renovation.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

We stayed here for one night on a trip through on route 66. The site was clean - although the trash cans were full to overflowing. The wifi did not work at all well - we had to use our Verizon hotspot to be able to get onto the internet and review email.. Satellite TV worked well We were on... More

We stopped two nights at the Big Red Barn which is a nice RV park. It is undergoing further improvement but it is not the facilities that set it apart, the team there are by far the most welcoming and helpful we have met... if you are doing Route 66 this is just the place to stop.

Kevin, thank you for your review. Our Wi-Fi issues have been resolved. We strive to maintain a peaceful and orderly park for ALL of our guest. Occasionally, our family friendly park does not meet someone's needs. It is never a good feeling, when management is required to step in and ask someone to leave. I sincerely apologize if this was...

We stayed in a 38' Motorhome here for one night and were very satisfied with the accommodations. The sites are mostly level gravelled with a nice table on a cement pad. We were so glad to get back in away from the freeway and train noises. Although there are a lot of nice shade trees, we specifically requested a site... More

This park is very well maintained with level pull through sites. Most sites have concrete pads with very nice picnic tables on them. They have both cable TV as well as WiFi. Signs on the road leading to the campground are very well marked.
