We only stayed one night. It is a small campground with lots of grass and a big playground. The back in-sites are very spacious. The lady running it is very nice and goes out of her way for her guests. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We got turned around trying to find the park. It is right off the freeway. You turn left at Casey's Gas Station which is across the from the VA Medical Center. It was a perfect place to spend the night.

This is a small park east of the interstate at exit 53 (not 54 where the GPS takes you). Traveling north or south, exit and turn left. Seventh Street is the first street east of the Interstate. The park has gravel roads and sites. Some sites are more spacious than others. Power in the park is average and the water pressure is good. Verizon phone service is good as is their free park Wi-Fi. They have a dog area, but it is not fenced. When we were here, only a few dogs used the area. Most of the park is shaded by large trees. Most of the open sites where a satellite would work, are occupied by full-timers. We would return to this location. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Just a one night stop on the way back north. Lady at the desk is fabulous, nicest customer service I've had in a while, very friendly. We got a pull through (of which there are many) and it was a bit muddy...must have rained recently. They have cable hookups so we could skip the satellite hookup. Very nice for a one night stay. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

A no frills RV park. Sites are level. This is a gravel and grass park with some pull throughs. Showers are well maintained and private. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is a small park and an area to walk your dogs. I would stay here again. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were here to visit family, so we didn't do any touring, the campground was clean & well taken care of. Sites are gravel & grass pull through & back ins, some sites are shaded some open, all with full hookups, all worked well including cable & WIFI.

Owner was very friendly & helpful, Laundry had 2 washers & 2 driers @ $1.00 each. The 4 bathrooms were a little unique in that each one were a separate room with a shower, with changing area, toilet & sink, and a lockable door, all very clean. There is a playground & specific dog walk area.

To some, being right next to the interstate may be a problem but we hardly even noticed.

If we were ever in the area again, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park has full hookup sites with cable TV and a Wi-Fi system that worked for us. There are many trees in the park, which means most sites are not satellite friendly. There are at least 3 individual bathrooms and laundry facilities are clean and functional. There is no pool but there is a small playground and a covered pavilion. There are no restaurants or stores within close walking distance. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived after the office was closed. Easy after hours check-in with available sites clearly marked, deposit envelopes supplied, pay by either cash or credit card. Previous posts fairly accurate, a little noise from highway and trains, but not too bad. Sites are level and a good size for an overnighter. Campground very neat and clean, nice grassy dog walk area with poop bags supplied. Some shady sites so if you have satellite by sure to ask for a clear site. Cable supplied, very basic but adequate. Verizon and sprint good signals. There is wifi available but we didn't try it. We would stay here again. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is very close to the highway. We had planned to stay 2 nights but due to the noise changed our mind. There are homes nearby with dogs that wouldn't stop barking. The faculty itself is okay. The WiFi didn't work well. Easy to get in and set up. I doubt I would stop here again-due to the noise. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an okay campground for an overnight. One row of pull-throughs is well spaced but the other row is more tightly packed. The interior road between the pull-throughs is a little narrow, which can make it a challenge to get into a site depending upon how RVs/autos are parked. Wi-Fi worked well for my external antenna and both AT&T and Verizon had good signals. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice overnighter park; easy friendly management, clean, quiet campsites. Gravel roads could use some pot hole filling, but it's better than speed bumps. Sites were long enough for a 36ft plus tow..easily. I'd stay here again. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Small RV park, easy on/off I-57. Freeway reconfigured eliminating south exit that GPS wants you to take but you can just take the next exit. Once on Main Street park turn sign gets to you quickly so be wary. We had a level pull-through site with good voltage and water pressure. Park Wi-Fi works good but shuts quickly with non-use. Sites are pretty close together. Fast food and dine in restaurants are close by as are fuel stations. We would stay here for an overnight stay again.

Nice clean just-off-the-Interstate park, the noise from the interstate is not bad. The only issue I had was, I paid for a pull thru and had to unhook because my sewerage hose would not reach the sewage hole with my jeep hooked up. The campground is a nice stop over. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice over-night park. It is kind of hard to get into tho as the roads are very narrow, and not marked very well. All the utilities worked as they should. I had called ahead and reserved a spot and the lady was waiting for me to arrive. These folks are very pleasant and accommodating. I would stay here again if in the area.

Lots of shade. Well kept (they mow all the time). Gravel and grass sites and mostly level. Most are pull thru's. Park manager very nice and runs a nice park. 4 or 5 private baths with shower. Lots of nearby restaurants, shopping, etc. Highly recommend. Pet area and pavilion. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park has full hookup sites with cable TV and Wi-Fi that worked for us. There are lots of trees that make many sites impossible for roof satellite. The main building includes a small laundry and individual bathrooms. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.
