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

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

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

Passport America rate, no limit on number of days at the discounted rate. Small park with no amenities, but all sites were level and services worked well. We stayed for five nights while doing genealogy in the area. Hillside RV Park met our needs. We would stay here again. - Dave51

The Downstream RV park is located right beside the Downstream Casino in Quapaw OK, just a little ways from Joplin Missouri. The RV park is basically a concrete parking lot, which is easily accessible by any size rig. The only hook-ups are electric at this time of year (water is available when the temperatures are warmer); there are no amenities such as showers or bathrooms. There is probably a dump station there, but we have never used it. The area where you park your RV is very illuminated and easy to navigate at night. Right after we arrived, the casino shuttle gentleman came around and told us the closing time of the gift shop in the casino, 7 pm, which is where you have to register to spend the night. You first must go into the parking lot (campground) , pick a lot, and then go into the front doors of the casino; go to the Q Club Desk on your right and get a Q Club card. After receiving your card, you proceed to the gift shop and tell them your lot number, and then you're all set. Each adult in your party can get a card, and each card is good for one free night of camping. Pets are welcome. We have stayed at the Downstream RV Park three different times and have always been very pleased with our camping experience there. We would highly recommend it to others. It is an easy get off-get on to Interstate 44. Give it a try; can't be beat for free camping! - Krissy r

This park is a good park for a couple of nights. It is a all cement park divided into RV sites. It is owned by Downstream Casino Resort. - Joceil

The casino is just off HWY44. We camped overnight at the casino RV and semi-truck overnight area which was closest to the casino. We could walk to the casino (maybe the same distance as a couple of city blocks), but the shuttle came around every 15 min or so. It was a concrete parking lot with wifi and water and electricity hookups. There is another RV parking lot area at the entrance to the road into the casino.
It was fine for overnighting, but don't park near the semi-trucks as their engines go all night long. Otherwise, it was very quiet. There is a dump station available. Security patrols the area on a regular basis and it is very well lit. Very well!
To get your free overnight stay, park in an empty site, note its number, then go to the Q Club in the very nice but smoke-filled casino, register and get your player's card, then take it to the gift shop and tell them your site number and you are good to go. Gambling is optional. Very nice and helpful staff everywhere. - alm

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
Aug 2016 - $1.00
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

First three nights are FREE We stayed there three nights. Great people in casino. Food was very good and reasonable and available 24 hrs a day. Very level pull-through sites. Very long and spacious. Dump station was very convenient. 50 amp service and water. After third night it's $10.00 a night. We stayed three nights while riding our motorcycles on route 66. Easy on and off from highway. - New yorker

Spiffed up about 3 or 4 years ago. New showerhouse/restroom building with 2 generic stalls. It's starting to show it's age and use by folks that could care less about it. Was a bit dirty and buggy inside, but everything worked as it should.
Has 50/30/20 amp electrical pedestals in good shape. All sites are paved and fairly level. Water spigots are shared between 2 sites, 2 outlets per spigot.
Great dump station setup but might be a little tight turning for larger trailers, (as is the entrance to the park). Fairly quiet in the evening and overnight, but gets noisy about 6am from traffic. - bobojay

The June 2008 review is what I would say; we also have been coming here for many years and seen it progress. It now has 50-amp power, a picnic shelter, new picnic tables, and added a small bath house (two rooms, each with a toilet, lavatory, and a shower.) - carderh

Good spot if you need to be in Pittsburg. Only one other rig when we were there and then just one of the nights. Big paved lot and private with woods behind with a mobile home sales lot across the street. Some road noise to the north, else all quiet and peaceful. Totally open, no shade, but great for satellite dishes. No restrooms. You must be self-contained. Dump available and it is included in fee. - pubtopoub

A good over-night KOA near the interstate with long level gravel sites. The noise level is minimal. Utilities function well and the restrooms are clean. A duck 'fishing' pond adds some nice atmosphere. Also, this park has a ample sized fenced dog run. Pizza delivery to your site is a plus. - OldeJohn
Oct 2016 - $47.00
Gravel interior roads (dusty). Our site had gravel on parking area remainder is grass. No patio.
Dog park area. Could have been better if pet owners would all be responsible and pickup after their pets.
Staff was very nice and helpful. - Tom 573
Aug 2016 - $47.00
We stayed in the Tall Oaks rows, which had some shade. We stayed here in a 38ft coach with tow. The sites were very long and level, they have crushed stone patio area, so you are out of the mud if it rains.
Dog park, playground, pool. Fishing and duck pond. No activities.
The area has good shopping, mostly on Business 49/S.Ridgeline Rd. Not alot of local activities, so if just want to relax and camp, this could work for you. - nuttman

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

Stayed here on June 20 left on June 21. Very little shade trees, pretty much an open lot with full hookups that are at each side.
There is a laundry facility with washers and dryers, fairly new remodeled bathrooms and the management went above and beyond what customer service means. - Denise M Smith
Mar 2016 - $30.00
We planned to just overnight in this park on the way through the area and used the late drop box as the office was closed when we arrived. Due to very high winds we stayed an extra night. The staff was very friendly and gave us information on the area and recommendations on places to eat and things to do. The restrooms/showers were spacious and were very clean. The WIFI was a little spotty but was average compared to other parks. We would stay at this park again in the future. - scottw
