Joplin KOA

Joplin, Missouri

Date of Stay:

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.

Owner came out to check me in at 8 PM. Price was for 50 Amp full hookups. Location is very convenient to Buc-ee's and I-45. You can see and hear the traffic on the Interstate. 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. We had a very heavy rain and the drainage was pretty good with some puddles in the road. There is no cable TV, but OTA (over the air) eleven channels worked fine. ATT phone service is 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 2 out of 5 bars. There is no trash pickup at the sites. There are some chickens and mocking birds. There are some mature shade trees. The RV park offers home made bread pudding for $15 for a pan at the office. The free Wi-Fi strength and response is good. No flies or mosquitoes are noticeable. Beggar's Lice (plant seeds) are in the grass and wedge between the toes of our dog. He didn't like it until we picked them out. There are no picnic tables or fire rings. This is good for an overnight stay.

Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups. Location is very convenient to TA Truck Stop and I-80. Noise was not a problem with the air conditioner on. The well maintained park is decorated in cheerful yellow signs, picnic tables, fences and site markers. They have crushed asphalt gravel driveways and pads and some grassy tent pads. We had a very heavy rain and the drainage was excellent. There is no cable TV. We picked up one PBS channel over the air. There was no trash pickup at the sites. The free WiFi strength was excellent and response time was great. There were some gnats at night. Verizon wireless showed 5 out of 5 bars signal strength and ATT showed no network coverage.

Price was for Good Sam 50 Amp electric and water only. Staff is friendly and we received free huckleberry ice cream bars upon check in. No cable TV, but one OTA channel without raising the antenna. They have gravel driveways and pads, and a short drive on a gravel road to get to the park. This gives you a great view of I-90, I-90 frontage road, Reno Creek, and the railroad track. All are far enough away to enjoy without a lot of noise. There was no trash pickup at the sites, but they do have picnic tables, BBQ grills, and lighted pedestals at night. The free WiFi strength was excellent, but response time was slow on the iPad and not useable on my HP laptop. There were some mosquitoes at night, but no flies. Lots of crows. Verizon wireless showed 3 out of 5 bars signal strength and ATT showed 5 out of 5. The park is well maintained and has hiking trails you can use.

Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups. They have gravel driveways and pads. There is no cable TV, but over-the-air channels are available. Signal strength is good but the signal drops out to zero periodically which is very irritating. We were on the lower level. The landscaping is attractive and very well manicured with flowers, shrubs, trees, and mowed grass and clover. Road noise from highway 2 was not noticeable inside the RV. The free WiFi strength and response is excellent. No flies or mosquitoes.

Price was for 50 Amp full hook ups not on the river side which was a higher price. They have gravel driveways and pads. Screw in sewer connection. There is cable TV. The infrastructure and buildings look new. The landscaping is attractive and very well manicured with mature shade trees and mowed grass. With the high trees and birds, it was like camping in a very pleasant aviary. There was no trash pickup at the sites; dumpsters were available. Cottonwood was in full bloom creating an artificial snow storm. The free WiFi strength was OK and response was slow and barely usable even with the park less than 25% full. There were no flies or mosquitoes. Lots of ground squirrels and some rabbits and Canadian geese. Continental breakfast is available in the office to the campers for $3.50. If you have prepay cell phone accounts, you may not be able to make any calls from the Dubois Telephone company. ATT and Verizon are roaming here. We had no signal on ATT wireless and 3 out of 5 bars roaming for Verizon, but still couldn't make a Verizon phone call using our prepay account.
