16 RV Parks near Baxter Springs, Kansas
May 2014 - $10.00
This park was very nice to stay in while we worked to help the Red Cross using our motorhome as a base during the tornado restoration work that we did. Each pedestal at each site has a 30 amp as well as a 50 amp hookup, with good electricity and has good water pressure also available. In addition, there is a dump station in the park as well. Virtually every site is fully shaded, with parking on asphalt large enough to place all wheels of a 40' motor-home off the grass. As instructed we called the Police Department for permission to stay and the Lady there suggested that we might prefer to come to the Police station to avoid any potential hassle with regards to paying. We understood that the Police are busy, however we regularly saw them patrolling the road alongside the park, but we knew that we should pay the $10 nightly fee, and so we took her suggestion. Our stay there was uneventful, peaceful, and we would stay there again. - jmorgan54

No facilities at this park just porta potties. Took moving three times to find a plug-in that worked. Very kid friendly has a huge park with playground. You have to go by the police department to get the permit they wouldn't come out for us so best to stop on the way by. - G_Escape

We stayed here while driving Route 66. Campers need to contact the Baxter Springs Police Department for a permit to camp. Even though we called the police department, no one ever came to collect the fee. A dump station is available. There are both back-in and pull-thru sites. Grass was long but it had been rainy for a few weeks. We were able to wash our rig and tow car at our site. We would stay here again. - thetravelkids

Water was off for the winter. They wouldn't remove the lock for us to fill. Told us to use the dump station faucet. We had our slides out so we just filled jugs. A hot shower would have been nice. 2 free nights with player cards. - Iamthewalrus

Rated a 10 for the value. Its a concrete parking lot with W/E hookups. Dumpstation available. Water was off for the winter months. We stayed in both lots. One is in Kansas, the other is over the state line in Missouri. The one closer to the casino in KS is alongside where the trucks also park, so it is a bit louder. The one over on the MO side is nice and quiet. Both have good hookups and wifi available. We also had decent Verizon data signal. To get the 1 night free, go into the casino to the Q-club desk and sign up (free) as a Q-club member. Then go into either the gift shop (if on the KS side) or into the Q-store (gas station) for the MO side. All 21+ in your group can sign up as a member and check-in for 1 free night! - Living Our Dash

Previous posts are pretty much spot on. However there is a dump-station near the dumpster on the way out. I give it a 10 because of value and the casino treats everyone very well. Site surface was a concrete pad and lots have sunny/open exposures. - StevenH

Only stayed overnight. Level gravel site with FHU. Cable was good, but wifi did not work properly. I did not use the showers or laundry. I thought it was odd that is KOA did not have a recycling center. Plenty of shopping areas within a couple of miles. - G W

We meet some Montana friends here. Our friends called to make a reservation and was told plenty of sites, no worry. When asked about deposits, was told not a problem. They told the staff that we wanted two sites side by side. They gave them the two site numbers that we would be in. When the Montana couple checked in, they were told again that no problem for side by side sites. Before we arrived, they had parked another camper in "our site". When the Montana coupled inquired as to what the deal was. The owner(?) manager became angry and said they did not guarantee sites with out a deposit. This lead to a headed discussion about what had been said. When we arrived, I asked for my site base on the numbers that we had been given. I assume it was the same lady that had been involved in the previous discussion as the conversation went downhill in a hurry. She said we were parked directly across from our friends so it was not a problem. Not sure what directly across form our friends means to her but being two sites further down was not directly across. While this was my first stay at the Joplin KOA it is also my last stay. Staff was very rude. JMHO. - goldsp8

Laundry is not air conditioned. Washers are two dollars. Dryers are also two dollars Even though the clerk knew I was a cat owner, I was placed right behind a camper who had eight or nine Pomeranians and Chihuahuas. Clerk was rude from the moment I walked in the door. - Sharonc

This is a great place to park for 3 nights free! There is a train close by but I did not find it annoying. There is a great restaurant a few miles up the road in town called the Buttered Buns. Great place to get home cooked style meals. - Sharonc

This was a complimentary very spacious pull through site. Good utilities with wifi but no cable TV. Perfect for a one night stay over. - Altoflyfisher

There are 9 level paved pullthrough sites about 100' long with about 25' of mowed grass between each site. No reservations. Each has a 20/30/50A power and a water spigot and a trash barrel, no frills overnight stay. The voltage remained high even running the A/C. The area is clean and maintained. A dump station is nearby. The RV sites are at the backend of the parking lot which puts them out of the path of most of the traffic.
Occupy a vacant site and then walk to the far end of the casino building to the security office and register. You don't have to go through the casino to find the office. The first 3 nights are free. There is a dump station.
It is 4.5 miles from I-44 Exit 313. It is convenient for those with RVs who want to visit the casino or travelers looking for a secure overnight stop near Miami, Okla.
I would have rated this place higher except that to register they make a photocopy of your driver's license; and there is a mainline track with a crossing less than 1/4 mile across the field. The night we were here: 1 or 2 trains passed after we turned in, that I was aware of. We arrived around 7:30 on a Saturday night and found 3 available sites. The one next to us remained unoccupied overnight. We would definitely stop here again if passing this way. - Trailbuddy

This is a clean park with traffic noise and train noise.
Sites are wide, near-level grass and gravel, in various lengths. A few have shade or picnic tables. Voltage is good.
Roads are gravel in very good condition.
Verizon LTE works well.
There are strong terrestrial broadcast signals from ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and PBS.
No rest rooms, showers, WiFi, cable, laundry, or credit cards. - wjzcbn

Very nice and quite private campground. They have full hookups. Would recommend. - timenazi
Oct 2017 - $27.00
This is a decent, clean campground with easy access to the I-44 Turnpike. A trailer park and long term campers in the back with the transient sites in front. Easy pull thrus with good utilities. It's corporately owned and managed by onsite residents. Staff was friendly and efficient. Good for an overnighter. Only negatives were the excessive road noise from E Steve Owens Rd, train nearby and the park is lit up like a mall parking lot. So bring your ear plugs and black-out shades. Sites require some leveling. - jl2000

Older park with seasonal lots in the back and transient pull thru lots in the front. Easy off and on the highway. Price was very reasonable for service provided. Managers were very helpful. Site was level and hookups convenient. Did not use showers or restrooms. We will stay here again when traveling this way. - Z06

This park is exactly what we are looking for when we are on the road. Easy in and out, long level sites and good utilities. I called ahead to say we were coming. The office was closed by the time we arrived, but there were clear late check-in directions. However someone saw us come in and came over and opened the office to check us in. Very friendly. Wifi was available, but we didn't use it. We had a good Verizon signal. This is a nice no-frills park. It has a road in front with some traffic, but not a bother at all. There are showers and a laundry, but we didn't need to use them. We would definitely stay here again. - cgsmom

RV parking is across the street from the Casino main parking lot. The area is constantly patrolled by security & the patrol will take you across to the Casino Gift Shop to register and return. Shuttles run back and forth to the Casino day and night. About half the sites are pull-through and utilities are at the back of the site. The sites are paved and level. There are no restrooms, showers or laundry on site. The Casino offers a 2 for 1 breakfast coupon at check in. The rate is $9 first night and free for the next two. The overflow parking lot is used by tour buses and semi's. BNSF RR is 200 feet away and there is rail traffic 24/7. We had no problem sleeping and didn't hear the trains during the night. The Casino & RV lot is within the Eastern Shawnee Nation in the NE corner of the state of Oklahoma, abutting Seneca, Missouri. We noticed no odor from the treatment facility just to the west of the Casino. This is a good place to stop for a day or a few and we would stop here again if in the area. - SilverBear

Others have addressed the cost and the train. Most of the time, there are plenty of open spots and it is possible to pull through rather than back in. Regarding the sewage treatment plant, when the wind comes from the west, you will get a very unpleasant whiff. Also, the cost goes to $9 on your 4th night, then $15 starting on the 8th night. This is a terrific stopover for a couple nights. Be sure to try out Country Cupboard restaurant for breakfast in Seneca. The casino also offers a good $3 breakfast. - thearys

Yep, there are trains and they only shook our motorhome slightly. Rate is $9 first night, next 2 nights free. All hookups are at rear of sites in campground, which is a fully paved parking lot. Your RV must be fully self-contained, since no facilities are on site. Buy one, get one dinner coupon with paid first night's rent. $10 casino cash for first time visitors when joining Player's Club. - Teacher's Pet

This is a very nice RV Park which adjoins the Indigo Sky Casino. The sites are all "back- in." Water and electric only with a dump station on the property. We spent three nights here and enjoyed the peace and quiet in the park. The casino has all the amenities you could ask for. Wonderful food and the office staff are very helpful. - Herb Richards

This park is often listed as Seneca. MO. It is West of there, a few hundred yards into Oklahoma and is part of the Eastern Shawnee Nation. The adjoining casino is the "Indigo Sky Casino".
This seems to be a very successful enterprise, it is jaw dropping beautiful with fountains and statuary and flower gardens. The grounds are neat and clean and always being maintained.
The hotel is very big and grand with Southwest themed decorations and much to see. There is a restaurant that features a different buffet every night. The food is good! Also a food court. There is an outdoor pool which you can use as an RV guest.
All that said the RV park has some shortcomings, but remember it is $15.00 a night. All sites are water and electric only and these utilities were conveniently placed and very good. Everything is back-in, even the dump station is back-in.
There is an office in the RV park but it is not always manned. Pick a spot and go up to the hotel to register. Very easy, very friendly.
There are 45 sites most, not all, are merely painted lines on an asphalt parking lot. All are numbered and well designed and each backs up to its utilities, but if you want grass on either side of your unit drive around and check for the few that have lawns designed around them. We did.
There are no fire rings or picnic tables at the sites, but there is a huge redwood picnic pavilion with tables and three stone fire places and grills.
The RV park is meticulously clean and groomed, a security vehicle with its green flashing light goes through about every 15mins. The flowers, other shrubbery and lawns are expertly done, but the trees are all young. Shade will be here in a few years. The bathrooms and showers were all clean and well monitored. There is no cable, but all major channels are available OTA.
Wi-Fi is at the Hotel but not in the park. This is a very good casino RV park. The restaurants were great; we never gambled. - Jack B

Stayed one night at the campground. Very new campground that is owned by the Indigo Sky Casino. Hook ups and water looked new. Would stay here again. - depguy

Wonderful park, friendly troopers, peaceful, tranquil and lots of large open space. There is an upper and lower campground. The lower is lakefront and the upper is in the trees and wide open. Would go back in a minute if we were in the area. - Layne

State Park is rather spread out. We stayed here as an overnight on our way through. It's about 15 minutes south of the interstate. Though the bath rooms were pretty clean, some were starting to show their age. Good value. We would stay here again - pmbeaty

This is another beautiful Oklahoma State Park. To get to campgrounds, turn off U.S. Highway 60 onto State Highway 137. This road runs through the park with campgrounds on either side of the highway. We were worried about road noise during the night but traffic declined sharply after dark. We stayed at Echo Hollow campground on the east side of Highway 137 overlooking Spring River. We were in a shaded site with a good view of pelicans on the river. We will come back here when we have more time to spend so we can explore the area and fish from the enclosed fishing dock. I checked yes for big rigs as our motorhome is 38 feet and we fit in a site just fine. We had no trouble getting level. - travelwithus
