This is a very quiet and pleasant park. In June it changed ownership and, having been very happy with the previous owner, we were a bit apprehensive. However, the new owner is amazing! From the time we arrived until we left it felt like he was a friend and not a business owner. One side of the RV park backs up to a trailer park that has several older trailers but the people who live there are quiet, stay to themselves, and keep their areas clean. The other side of the park is a pasture with cattle and horses. While there is not a fenced dog run, there is adequate sticker-free area to walk dogs. Due to no other dogs around, the owner allowed us to run our dogs off-leash with their shock collars. The new owner is planning to have a fenced dog run in 2018. The WiFi is fast and reliable if you park close to the booster which is located at site 18. I absolutely cannot say enough good about this park. We will definitely stay here again. We've actually fallen in love with the little town of Oswego. If you stay here, be sure to eat at the little Mexican restaurant called "Mi Pueblo." It's authentic Mexican food and yummy. While there is not a laundromat in the park, there is one in town on the road headed east out of town. The park manager is hoping to eventually add a laundry facilities. - MT RVers

While we were there the park was very quiet. There are a few full-time residents and the park backs up to a mobile home park. However it was clean and neat. There is not a fenced dog walk but there is a large field that is bordered by trees that our dogs enjoyed. The owners are friendly without being intrusive. They have recently sold the park. I hope the new owners are as nice as the old owners. - MT RVers

This is a basic no frills campground. It is maintained very well and quiet. The owners also own the mobile home park next door and it is very clean and neat. The sites are good sized, gravel with a nice grassy area, and long enough for our 37-foot RV, tow-dolly and parking the car. Some sites have trees for shade and there are open ones as well. The owners were wonderful. We got all hooked up and discovered that the electric didn't work. We called them and they came right over and put in a new breaker so we didn't have to unhook everything and move to a new spot. There is a large field for dog walking. We had full hook-ups, the WiFi was slow a few times but most of the time it worked well. Our Verizon signal was moderate but our hotspot worked fine when we needed it. We stayed the last week in September 2016 and paid $18 a night with our Passport America discount. - BarrettsHappyTrails

Stayed one night passing through. Very basic park. Hard to locate-Street address given to us does not work with GPS and we ended up in a park by the swimming pool-called and they were nice enough to send a man to lead us to the campground. Sites are not level. Shower house door does not shut so luckily we were the only campers in the park. We would not stay here again. - ouachita princess

We camped here on our way home from Colorado. The park is owned by the City of Oswego. Rustic setting, trees galore. Cost was $10. Very nice quiet place to spend the night. Park was patrolled by the Oswego City Police. Definitely would stay here again. - We3Brvn

Terrific value in this little park! Nice and quiet. Beautiful sunsets over the lakes. Police patrol several times a day. Hookups are all newer and in good shape - they are locked until you pay. Call when you arrive and an officer will come out to take payment, or you can stop at City Hall during business hours. It was pretty empty in late October, but you'll probably want reservations in the summer months. The website has all the info. you'll need. Half the sites are extra long pull-throughs, including 2 that must be at least 150 feet. - a_elkins

Yes, you're reading that right, $10 a night for full hookups. There are two separate sections, the shower house is near one side of the lake and a smaller building with just a sink and toilet is near the other. The shower house was clean, but kind of an odd configuration with both showerheads in the same place, so no real privacy although it's such a small campground that might not be an issue. Cement floors, toilets in that building had shower curtains for doors. Only a handful of sites were occupied when we were there. Very peaceful and quiet. There's a fairly large frisbee golf course at the park so there's lots of room to walk, and the lakes have turtles that can be spotted if you sneak up on them. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, it's a viable option in the southeast corner of Kansas if you're passing through or just want some peace and quiet for a few days. - Denise and Glenn

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

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

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

Spending one night here, previous reviews are still accurate though it has been 5 years since the last one was posted. Price is still $10 per night, I am here on a Sunday night and most of the spaces were taken when I arrived at sunset. It looks like some have been here for a long time (tank totes and lawn furniture set up) even though the sign at the payment drop says max stay of 10 days out of every 30. Sites appear to all be back in, I found it somewhat challenging getting into the space I selected due to sharp turn and narrow gravel roadway. - Isaac-1

I know where the park's name comes from since it was a "Marvel" I found the place. My GPS brought me in the back way, but upon leaving I left what was the correct entrance off of Main St. Price has gone up since the other reviews but that is to be expected. It is quiet and maybe a third of the sites offer shade depending where the sun is. The restrooms/showers involved a bit of a hike but were OK. I'd rate it higher but some long-term residents detracted from the setting. - Traveler John

I've camped at a number of city parks, and this is one of the nicer ones. While the entrance to Marvel City Park is on main street, the campground is a good distance from the highway so it's quiet and secluded. The park is very clean and well maintained. It's well worth the $5 camping fee. For $1.50 you can use the city swimming pool complex (pool, slides and showers- open during the summer) located in the adjoining city park, within walking distance of the campground. Stay limit is now 7 days. - Traveling man

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
