Easy access from highway with Flying J .2 mile away. Wide streets making it easy for larger rigs. If full, sites are very close. Pull-through sites alternate entry, so you step out on the same side your neighbor does, offering very little privacy if you are both sitting out at the same time. Very, very close to highway, making it very noisy even with all windows closed. Sites were gravel at one time but mostly dirt now, and mud if any rain. Grass hasn't been cut for awhile and trash laying around. Office only opened 3 hours a day in the evening, although they do leave a map and site assignment taped to the door if they know you are coming. No cable and Wi-Fi very, very weak...pretty much non-existent. Didn't use laundry but dryers look vintage. If in this area again, will research other campgrounds. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Motorhome.

This RV park is basically the only choice in the area. It is very close to the interstate which is great for a quick stop but also has some noise from traffic (really wasn't bad). Only a block from Flying J and close to town. Grocery store about 1 mile away and many restaurants. We recommend Gambinos pizza. We camped here two nights to attend the local county fair. This campground is basically a gravel parking lot. They have cable TV if you can get the cable box to work. The Wi-Fi might work if you are in the first space or two next to the office but too weak to reach into the park. They have a nice park-like play area, self service laundry. Spaces are close together but it wasn't crowded so it didn't seem to be a problem. No campfires or fire rings. Management seemed OK but not overly friendly. We would stay here again if needed. We paid $28 a night with Good Sam discount. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice, convenient campground. Great place for a break. Clean, nice pull-throughs. Only drawback is it's next to Kansas turnpike so there is some traffic noise, but overall a decent place. Staff very helpful. We recommend this as a good convenient place for a break. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Motorhome.

Check in was speedy and easy. Staff was pleasant, friendly, and informative. The park was small in size but was well maintained. Laundry facilities were great with sufficient equipment, a laundry tub basin, and most importantly adequate chairs. Access to the grounds was easy as well as exiting. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I try to be fair when reviewing campgrounds, but this was a tough one. First of all, the office was closed when we arrived, but there was a note in the door directing us to our site. The manager came by later to collect and was a rude person. The site was long enough for our RV & car with W/S/50AMP/WIFI, but no cable although it was advertised as included. This campground is in between 1-35 on one side and Hwy. 50 on the other, and also a railroad crossing out back. Very, very noisy. All the sites are side by side. The site next to us set up a dog fence with 2 big dogs, and it was almost at our door step. That's what I call really close and rude. The whole place is dirty and scruffy, even the dirt is dirty. Trailer Life rates this 7.5/8.5/6.5. I think they need to take a closer look. Worse place we have ever stayed; glad to leave early next morning. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived about 3:30 on a Friday, and never saw the manager, so we finally did a night check-in. Park is bounded by state highway and turnpike with a railroad nearby; Very noisy and narrow sites . Some sites only had about 4 feet of crab-grass between them. Seemed to be a nice play area on one side, but it had a neglected look along with the rest of the park. Several rigs appeared as if they rented by the year. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fine for an overnight. Lots of road noise. Find your site and settle in. Office staff shows up at 4 pm. Sites fairly close together. Would stay again, but only for an overnight. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Motorhome.

We are Good Sam members so we got $3.00 off the quoted rate. Park is nothing to shout about but was clean and easy to get in and park. Wi-Fi work well and was a 9 on a scale of 1 to 10. We stay here on occasion, when we do not want to drive all the way to KCMO in one day. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Motorhome.

OK for a quick overnight stay but too overpriced for what you get. Park needs some TLC to charge $33 a night. Very noisy from the interstate and trains sounding all night. Wi-Fi signal in space 14 was so poor we couldn't use it. Extra charge for 50 amp service. Old RV's were stored across from our site and had grass growing around them. Parks website makes it look much nicer than it really is. Wouldn't recommend for anything other than a quick overnight stop. Best thing about it was the friendly lady that took our information over the phone for our late arrival. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is extremely noisy next to interstate. Lot of full time trailers. Level and clean, but in a decline. Might stay there overnight only. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I wouldn't want to stay here very long the traffic noise from the turnpike and trains were a nuisance. The staff was very friendly, the park was clean and neat. The cable was fuzzy but the WI-FI worked great. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you have no where else to stay, this campground will work. It's fine for a place to sleep and get off the road. The site is for permament type campers and has a lot of government issued trailers. I think they got a good deal on them and rent them out. The road noise and train noise was unreal. The best thing about this site was that the sites were level. I would not stay here again.

I agree with the other post, but for a place to stop it was alright. We had site 20 and were not affected by road noise. The staff was friendly on check in. We would use the park again for this price. If the price goes up we would move on to find a different park. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The entrance to this park is extremely uninviting and looks like a run-down trailer park. There are many long-term units in the park in poor condition. Sites are crowded although level and of adequate length. There is a lot of highway noise both day and night. We stayed here two nights, out of necessity, but would not recommend this campground to anyone. We camped at Emporia RV Park in a Motorhome.
