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 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

Site 31. Millions spent on this paved RV park. Tremendous value with a simple casino card zero $. We have never used the casino to gamble but the buffett and the Q Store have been great. 50 amp electric and water when not freezing -no running water in the winter and dump station only But who could complain for the price. This would be an 8 park for 35$ But a 10 all things considered. Its a no brainer if you are traveling I 44. - P-rave-o

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

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

Nice, clean city park. However, it is near a major intersection so a bit noisy. Took a walk behind the park to the golf course and adjoining park. nice. water, elec, and wifi. About 5 other large RV's/motor homes when we arrived; two of those units used up 2 sites to park an extra vehicle, not sure if they paid for an extra site. Would not normally be a problem in a campground with vacant sites but the wifi signal could not reach our site (10) and the traffic noise was much more evident at our site, would have chosen another site if extra vehicles were not parked there. Did see city truck drive thru the next morning when we were leaving. Maybe the city needs to do a drive thru more often. An ok place for 1 night. - katinfoco

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

Stayed here overnight on migration north as we are snowbirds. This park is a typical KOA, with gravel, but level, pull thru sites with some grass and weeds between sites. Convenient on and off the freeway and would stay here again in the future. We did not unhook the 5er and FHU all worked as it should. - Mn snowbird
Mar 2018 - $47.00
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

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
