Weekly rate was for 50 amp with full hookups. Driveways and the pads were gravel. We were put in a back-in site even though pull throughs were available. I think they were shutting down the pull throughs because the park closes November 1. Utilities are at the back of the site so you need long connections. Water pressure was 50 psi so you need a pressure regulator. There were 64 channels of cable TV including a guide channel, 10 sports channels, 7 black screen with no sound channels and one Spanish channel. We had free, pass worded WiFi service with good strength and good response times. There was a picnic table. Sewer connections were screw in. ATT phone service was 3 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 4 out of 5 bars. Look carefully after dark; the front sign is not lit.

Rate includes 14% tax and was for 50 amp with full hookups. Driveways are gravel and the pads are gravel. When traveling south on Highway 321, make a U-turn at the BP station and follow the small sign to Misty River. There were no Whispering River signs. They are located two miles down Safari road. Driveways and the pads were gravel. Hookups are all at the rear of the pads. Our pad was long enough to accommodate a 37 foot motorhome with a small Honda attached. Water pressure was 40 psi. There were 106 channels of cable TV, but it required a small box available from the office. We found the free WiFi service up by the office to be mostly 'internet unavailable' with infrequent short periods of good response time. We tried an iPhone, an iPad and a Windows PC. Better luck was had walking down and using the 'Bath House WiFi" which was on a different router network. No password required. There was a picnic table and a fire ring. Sewer connections were screw in. ATT phone service was 4 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 2 out of 5 bars.

Rate was for 50 amp with full hookups. Driveways were gravel and our pad was concrete, passenger side facing the river. Pad had gravel and standing water all over it. We had free, passworded Wi-Fi service. WiFi was not responsive at all, irritating and useless. We tried iPad, iPhone and a PC. There was no cable TV. 19 OTA channels were available. Sewer connections were screw in. Water pressure was 40 psi. Our picnic table was missing, but the help retrieved it from another site. ATT phone service was 4 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 4 out of 5 bars. View of the barges on the Mississippi river was wonderful.

Rate was for 50 amp with full hookups. Driveways are gravel, the pads are gravel, and patios are concrete. There was a shade tree on almost every site. Our pad was long enough to accommodate a 37 foot motorhome and a small Honda. Water pressure was 40 PSI. There were 59 channels of cable TV. There was essentially no Internet access. We had free Wi-Fi service with infrequent short episodes of a one page response. No password required. We tried an iPhone, an iPad, and a Windows PC. There was a picnic table and a fire ring. Sewer connections were screw in. AT&T phone service was 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 2 out of 5 bars, frequently dropping back to 1X.

Rate was for 50 amp with full hookups. Driveways are gravel and the pads are gravel and well spaced. There is a huge newly mowed, picturesque draw beside the park. They are located two miles down Safari road. Park is on a hill, but the sites are terraced. We had no problem leveling with jacks. Our pad was long enough to accommodate a 37 foot motorhome with a small Honda attached. All the RVs in our area were newer and apparently travelers. The breaker serviced both the 30 and 50 amp hook ups. Water pressure was 40 PSI. There is no cable TV. We found 33 over-the-air TV channels. AT&T phone service is 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 3 out of 5 bars. There is no trash pickup at the sites, but at dumpsters. We found the free Wi-Fi service to be strong and the response time was good. There was a picnic table and a fire ring. Water connection was above ground and at several other sites the water connection had been raised above ground with plastic pipe extensions. Sewer connections were screw in; however, only ours was two feet above ground which made dumping impossible without 'walking the hose.' No flies or mosquitoes are noticeable.

Rate was for 30 amp with full hookups. Driveways are gravel and the pads are gravel and grass. They are located right next door to a Petro and a Pilot truckstop. The steady roar of the diesel trucks is not noticeable when you're running your air conditioner. We found 30 Cable channels. CNN and the weather channel and lots of interference. ATT phone service is 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 5 out of 5 bars. There is no trash pickup at the sites. There are some newly planted trees. The free Wi-Fi is limited to one device. Extra devices require extra payment. Wi-Fi strength was good and response is response is 2 to 3 seconds. There was a picnic table, but no patio or fire rings. No flies or mosquitoes are noticeable. Grass seeds are all over in the grass and get caught in our dog's long hair and wedge between his toes. For the money I think we'll find another place to stay in Joplin. We camped in a Motorhome.

Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups. Water pressure was 50 psi; use a regulator. The sewer connector is threaded There was a well maintained, landscaped park with gravel driveways and pads. There were grassy areas between each of the pads. The sites had picnic tables and fire rings. The sites surrounded a large mowed, grassy area where the bathhouse and pool were. The campground was moderately hilly, but the camp sites were level. The long term residents were in a separate part of the park. There were 48 cable TV channels with many having interference, but they were still watchable. ATT phone service was 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 4 out of 5 bars. There was no trash pickup at the sites. There were mature shade trees at some of the sites. The free WiFi strength and response were OK. Four sites had concrete pads and patios with picnic tables. Our neighbors took the Branson Shuttle Service in to town from the campground. On several occasions we saw Domino's Pizza cars come into the Campground. We'll stay here again.

This is a small jewel hidden in the prairies of Kansas. It is a great place for an overnight stay. Price was for 30 Amp, water and sewer. Water pressure was 40 psi. The sewer connector is threaded. The circuit breakers are at the house next to the office, not at the pedestals. The park was a well maintained, landscaped park with gravel driveways and pads. There are no pull through sites. There were grassy areas between each of the pads. There are no picnic tables and fire rings. The park was mowed and there were mature shade trees at most of the sites. There was no cable TV and we couldn't get any over-the-air channels out of Wichita (58 miles away) or Emporia (41 miles away). ATT phone service was 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 2 out of 5 bars. There was no trash pickup at the sites. There was no WiFi. We'll stay here again.

This is a good place if you are self-contained. Price was the Passport America rate for 50/30 amp, water, sewer, and cable. Water pressure was 50 PSI and the sewer connector is threaded. The pedestals are all brand new. Don't expect any fancy park maps, channel listings, or park information printouts. The park was under development with gravel and grass driveways and grass pads. There are three levels. The rutted drive to the second level and the rutted entrance driveway made me feel like four-wheeling. There are no pull-through sites, but we were allowed to park sideways in 3 sites to simulate a pull-through. There are no picnic tables, pool, playground, or fire rings. The park was mowed and there were only a few small shade trees. Don't forget your insect repellent; we picked up our share of chiggers in the mowed grass. We only found 5 channels on cable TV and we got 19 over-the-air channels using an antenna. AT&T phone service was 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 5 out of 5 bars. There was no trash pickup at the sites. The one long term resident travel trailer was still there. The Wi-Fi was very weak in site 39; we had trouble staying connected, so it was unusable. Dodge City is a stock yard town and the flies and smell of the feed lots reminded you of that now and then.

Quiet, peaceful and well maintained. Price was for 50/30 amp, water, and sewer. There was no cable. Water pressure was 40 PSI and the sewer connector is not threaded; it's a drop in. There are a limited number of pull-through sites. There were picnic tables, but no pool, playground, or fire rings. The park was mowed and there were Chinese elm and cottonwood shade trees. Each site had a small patch of grass that was watered and mowed and a concrete patio. We only found 3 PBS channels on over-the-air using an antenna. Chaffee County's other six broadcast analog translator television channels went off the air on April 1, 2014 due to the Federal government-mandated 2015 deadline to go digital. The Chaffee County TV Translator Association didn't enjoy the Federal funding that the PBS stations have. AT&T phone service was 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 3 out of 5 bars. There was no trash pickup at the sites. We saw Fedex make deliveries to campers on 3 separate occasions. The Wi-Fi was upgraded to TengoInternet and was included in the camping rate. Wi-Fi strength and response were excellent, and we were even able to download 2 minute videos from Youtube with minimal buffering. Washers are one dollar and dryers are one dollar for an hour. The washers are Kenmore Heavy Duty and are a large size. Looks like there were long term residents in 9 park models.

Very well maintained. Price was for 50/30 amp, water, and sewer. Cable TV had 41 channels. Water pressure was 40 PSI and the sewer connector is threaded. Lots of pull-through sites. There were no picnic tables, no pool, playground, or fire rings. There were many small trees and bushes, but really none big enough for shade. Driveways were asphalt. Sites were all concrete slabs with patios and gravel in between the sites. The wind was out of the north so we didn't have the cattle feedlot smell we had in the past. AT&T phone service was 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 4 out of 5 bars. There was no trash pickup at the sites. The Wi-Fi strength and response were excellent. Their computers were down so I had to pay cash.

Fredericksburg RV Park is located in the middle of town. Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups. Water pressure is 40 psi. The is a well maintained, landscaped park with gravel driveways and pads. There are grassy areas between each of the pads. Time Warner was installing new services so there were only 3 cable TV channels (one of them in Spanish), but OTA (over the air) eleven channels worked with a lot of tuning. ATT phone service is 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 4 out of 5 bars. There is no trash pickup at the sites. There are mature shade trees, free ice, and a shaded sitting area by a coy pond with Mallard ducks. The free WiFi strength and response is good, but constricted bandwidth means pictures on websites will slowly "paint" down the computer screen. Video is out of the question. There are concrete patios and picnic tables. There are no fire rings. There were a lot of newer, large class A's and fifth wheel trailers. There were no flies or mosquitoes which made sitting out under the awning enjoyable. Beggar's Lice (plant seeds) are in the grass and get caught in our dog's long hair and wedge between his toes. We'll stay here again.

Boggy Creek RV park is located at 554 County Road 350, the road just north and adjacent to the Shiner Green-Dickson City Park. The CR250 sign is missing and there is a sign saying "No Rigs." You're in oil country so they mean no oil rigs. Price was for 50 amp full hook ups. Water pressure is 20 PSI (normal is 40 PSI). Location is near a large plant that sounds like a diesel locomotive continuously running in the background. Noise was not a problem with the air conditioner on. The is a well maintained park with gravel driveways and pads. Some grass is growing in the gravel pads. There is no cable TV, but OTA (over the air) twenty channels worked fine. ATT phone service is 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 3 out of 5 bars. There is no trash pickup at the sites. The park is in a "hundred year flood plain", but we had no problems. There are some newly planted trees. The free Wi-Fi strength and response is good. There are no picnic tables or fire rings. I think we were the only transients; the rest were long term oil field workers all in newer trailers. The cattle in the field behind the park makes for a pastoral setting. No flies or mosquitoes are noticeable. Beggar's Lice (plant seeds) are all over in the grass and get caught in our dog's long hair and wedge between his toes. He didn't like it until we picked them out. This is good for a short stay.

It has water, electric, sewer and a dump station. The sewer connections are covered with metal lids that say "water meter." Use a screwdriver and pry the lids open and you'll see the connection. The RV parking is on a hill in the park. There are no pull-throughs, trash pick-up, or fire rings. There are concrete picnic tables. There is no cable TV and there is no Wi-Fi. There is automobile and foot traffic going through the grounds because it is in a city park and near a high school. The city park has lighted tennis and volleyball courts and a baseball/softball complex. You must go into town to the City Hall before 4:00 PM to pay for the site.
