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

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. - User3146

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

I called for reservations for Passport America, and the lady asked if I had a player's card. When I said I didn't, she said that with a player's card for the casino, there would be no fee. I got one, and when I went to the RV area, it was all concrete with water and electric at each site. The only thing that all the sites were not level front to back. It wasn't much, but you could see it. We had to go to the c-store to register. Everyone there was very friendly. The casino is one of the best I've ever been to. We will definitely stay there again when we're in the area. - 1dinky

The Downstream RV Park at the Downstream Casino is amazing, it is located an easy on and off of I-44. There are 2 parks one by the Q Shop next to the roundabout which is the furthest away or the one next to the casino in the RV parking lot. The area is a concrete parking lot which is very nice and level. The spots look out across a nice green field. Electric is available year round and water is only available during the warmer months and the water is next to the utilities and only one for each 2 sites so it is basically every other site has water. There is a van that comes around to pick you up about every 15 minutes to take you to the casino, but it is a easy short walk. There are no attendants on duty so you have to go to the casino to register your spot. Go to the Q Club Desk in the casino and get a Q Club card and the attendant will explain the benefits and then go on to the gift shop to register your RV spot. The wifi was excellent and we had about 16 TV channels and very quiet, the only thing I heard was the birds. And of course I have left the best for last, it is all free, unbelievable but true. We would definitely stay here again when passing through. - DallasRVers

We loved this little gem. It's true some of the sites were a bit uneven but we managed to level our bus just fine. We chose to stay at the area in front of the Q store and while it was closer to the road the noise did not bother us at all and the area was pretty with trees around the parking lot. It was clean and there was a dump site available but it can get busy if everyone leaves at the same time. The shuttle picked us up quickly and the driver gave us a tour around to look at the buffalo and we got to see a few babies in the field with their mamas. One even ran around his mother kicking up his heels and having fun. The casino is pretty and a smaller one and the staff were all very nice. We stayed at this park on the return trip too and ate at the nice restaurant but might try the buffet next time. The food was delicious but it is more expensive than most. However, the savings on the nightly rate certainly makes up for it. We actually didn't pay anything either time but would gladly pay the PA rate if needed. On the return trip we pulled into the lot closer to the casino. It was quite full and this is where the truckers park. It was MUCH noisier so we headed back to the other lot across from the Q store. We chose to stay here again instead of another park we had a reservation at because it was storming and flooding where we were going and we knew this park would be safer and it was. This will be a regular stop whenever we head in this direction. - tb919

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

We stayed just overnight to visit a friend. It is a well kept small park area. There are water and electric hook ups only. There is a dump station on site. The city does a good job of keeping it clean and mowed. - Honalee

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

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

Typical KOA, expensive and needs updates. Roads and sites are gravel, making things pretty dusty. Overall okay for a night or two. - mfcros

Nice KOA right off I-44 in Joplin. We stopped here at the last minute. Called about 5 minutes before arrival, and they were very accommodating. The owner and his wife are very helpful and the park is very nice and well-kept. I thought it would be loud since it's quite close to the highway, but they put us on the back row in the heavily trees area and it was relatively quiet. It wasn't very crowded as it was on a Sunday evening. We'd stay here again on our way through. - Safetylady01
Jul 2017 - $27.00
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

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
