The park was well maintained with lots of mature trees. They had asphalt driveways and asphalt pads. We had a back-in site. There was plenty of space between the sites. They had drop-in sewer connections. Water pressure was good. We had a 50 amp electrical connection. There was cable TV. WiFi was worthless - "This site can't be reached." "There is no Internet connection." "Unable to join network 'VillageNet.'", pages that start but never finish displaying. WiFi was provided by TengoInternet. Verizon Wireless was 4 out of 5 bars; AT&T wireless 5 out of 5 bars.

Very well maintained except someone broke off the screw top to the sewer connection, so we just used it as a drop in. Price was for 50/30 amp, water, and sewer. Cable TV had 41 channels. Water pressure was 40 PSI. 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. There is a grassy area at one end for walking the dog. The wind was out of the south so we didn't have the cattle feed lot 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 was excellent, but the response was slow (5 to 20 seconds) and we were disconnected several times. Lots and lots of flies; maybe from the feedlots.

This is a large park with all the amenities. Playground, swimming hole. Nice store in the office. We had a long pull through and didn't have to disconnect the toad. There were some long term campers. They had gravel driveways and gravel pads and mowed grass between each site. They had screw in sewer connections. Water pressure was good. They had 50 amps. There was cable TV. Rubbermaid trash cans were placed around the park. The WiFi was outstanding with excellent response time. Verizon Wireless was 4 out of 5 bars; ATT wireless 5 out of 5 bars. There were some flies, but no mosquitoes. We would camp here again.

The host should get a 10 for personality alone. The park is well maintained with gravel driveways. There was a lot of mature trees. We had a level pull through site and did not have to unhook the toad in the driveway; however, it required a 25 foot reach to the screw in sewer connection. Our motor home connection is in the middle, not at the back. Water had good pressure and we had a 50 amp electrical connection.There were over 105 cable TV channels. The free WiFi strength was good. The response was excellent. Verizon Wireless was nonexistent; ATT wireless was 5 out of 5 bars.

The park is well maintained with gravel driveways and gravel pads. We had a level back-in site and had to unhook the toad in the driveway up by the office. There was a lot of tent camping. There is also a playground, pool, basketball goal, and lots of kids. There was a lot of "Texas size" trees, meaning they were about 25 feet tall. There are plastic trash cans placed around the park for garbage. We had to share water connection and the power utility pole which put both of the on the "wrong" side. The 50 foot water hose and the 50 foot power cord came in handy. We also had to adapt our 50 amp cord to 30 amps to fit the power pole. The sewer connection had a wooden box cover and a screw-in connector which was nice after getting rid of the earwig nest and the spiders under the box. We had a good 12 inches clearance between our awning and the RV next door. Water pressure was great until 8pm when the pressure went to zero. We found out this was due to a temporary power outage which apparently affected the water pump. Twenty minutes later we had water. There was no cable TV, but we got eleven stations with our over-the-air antenna pointed north. The TengoInternet WiFi strength was good and required no additional payment; however, we were disconnected several times and had to reconnect. The response was good. Verizon Wireless was 5 out of 5 bars; ATT wireless 4 out of 5 bars.

This park was a pleasant surprise. There was a fenced playground with a covered area and a gazebo, and a separate dog area. The store in the office had a little of everything. We had a long pull-through and did not have to unhook the toad. There was plenty of space between the pull-through sites. There were some long term campers, but the park is well maintained. They had asphalt driveways and gravel pads. They had screw in sewer connections. Water pressure was great even with a regulator. The utility pole at our site was like new with 50 amps. Cable TV connection did not work. The free WiFi strength was good. The response was excellent. Verizon Wireless was 4 out of 5 bars; AT&T wireless 5 out of 5 bars. The landscaping had mowed grass between each site with lots of evergreen trees and flowers. Road noise from I-90 was not noticeable. Noise from the train tracks across I-90 was limited to a low rumble with no horns. We would camp here again.

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.

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.

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.

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.
