I've reviewed this park before. There have been two significant changes since then. The backin sites on the west side of the park now have 20/30/50A power also. The old golf course is now a recreation area with a walking trail, frisbee golf course, playground and dog park. They also have something I've never heard of called "foot golf". - ljr

Visited Chanute for camper repairs at the NuWa factory. As per earlier reports, first 2 nights are free, $10 per night thereafter. Maximum 10 nights in any 30 day period. There are 2 sections. The larger is at the intersection. The smaller is at the location of the dump station and bathrooms about .1 mile up the road. The smaller can get very busy when games are being played in the adjacent softball/baseball field. Spectators are numerous and parking is at a premium. Nobody parked blocking any sites while we were there. 50/30/20 amp service plus water. Lot is fully paved. Great value. We were 9 nights in Chanute while camper was being repaired. Not a whole lot to do in Chanute. Ample restaurants, Walmart. Safari Museum was nice. Go see it. - dthurk

Campground itself is a parking lot. However, the adjacent municipal park is very nice with fishing, hiking, dog park, several baseball/softball diamonds and frisbee golf. The sites on the west side are 30A but much longer than the 50A sites on the east side. Most people are here for the nearby RV service facility.
First 2 nights are free. - ljr

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

We stay in the Cherryvale section of the COE park for 2 weeks a month from April to Dec. There are full hookups on this side. Very clean, picnic table and fire ring on each site. Have group camping areas. Hosts are great, patrol twice a day. Sheriff's office patrols too. Been very happy camping here. We have a 40' fifth wheel and have plenty of room in most sites. Need a reservation weekends during camping season. Beautiful and quiet park. - CrochetGirl

We have a satellite dish on the roof for internet and DirecTV. The only sites that would work for us are 89 and 90. All other site are lovely wooded sites but very tree-filled lake edges, so no big open views of the lake, except for the sites 1-8 loop for tents. Heavy use for boaters. The Cherryvale Campground has only wooded sites or clearer w/o electric. 89 and 90 are the only sites w/e/sewer. $10 is the Senior Pass fee. Normal fee is double or a little more. - pubtopoub

Nice COE Park. We were in a full hook-up site which was away from the lake but that was OK. We were told that even though we had reservations for this site, we could look around and move if we wanted to in order to get closer to the lake. Seen deer wondering around right after getting set up. Would definitely stay here again. - K. Flooyd

Very nice COE Park that is used heavily on weekends by locals with their families. It is near several local small communities. It has ballfield and park like facilities to serve these communities. It has many full hook up sites and an over flow area that is electric only. Both areas are very nice depending on what hook ups you need. Quite possibly this is the nicest COE park you will find. We stayed here one night while crossing Kansas and was definitely worth locating. - Randoni

One of the nicest Army Corp of Engineers campground we have been to, this park is lovely and has lots to do for families side from fishing. It is obvious the local community has adopted this park and made it much better. We were in Cherryvale which is the only one open year round. Like all Corp sites, the campsites are widely spaced and long. Unlike most corp sites, about half have sewer outlets. In addition, there is that frisbee golf game with the chain "holes" you shoot for, an Audubon bird lovers meeting spot, two really nice playgrounds, a basketball court, group sites for day visits and camping sites, horse trails, and multiple boat launches. There are several sections of campsites on both sides of the lake. Our campsite was treed by old oaks and was high up on a ridge overlooked the lake. On the down side, there was no grass and the ground was hard packed dirt. The drive was paved and there was a paved patio with cement picnic table. At the end of the drive and between the patio they used large white gravel full of white caked dust that got wet and then hardened into ruts but that was our only complaint. The folks at the office don't keep regular hours but when we told them our 30amp was not working they had the maintenance guy there within 20 minutes to fix it. - Judy Birchland

The first 20 sites are full hookup. Go over to the Mound Valley North side of the park across the lake, to find out what sites are open for longer stay. We were lucky and found site 10 was open for a week.
I know if you make reservations you don't have to do this, but we have traveled for 15 years and just don't make reservations. Have had only one time where this was a problem.
Lots are spacious and offer some shade. Site surface is asphalt featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - glbaker44

Beautiful park built by the CCC, we camped mid week and the campground was not full. No maps were available and it took time to locate where everything was located. There is a road that goes completely around the lake and campsites are spread out. Sites with electric only (no water) are on the side of the campground road closest to the lake, sites with electric and water on the opposite side.
We camped in Rocky Cove and there was no bathroom in the campground so you would have to walk or drive a short distance to Oak Point to get to them. Showers were OK, showing some wear and faucets were broken in some stalls. - Ocotillo

Nice state park. Well shaded spot. We were on a double concrete pad. - redavis

We were pleasantly surprised when we found this campground. This state park has ample tall shade trees for each site. Most sites also had concrete pads (newer sites in the park). Larger rigs will have problems here because of the site set up. We have a 32 foot travel trailer and had to move slowly. Overall, a very nice find in the middle of nowhere. - Mason Family
