Great smaller park. This park is a resurrection of an old Highway 66 mobile home park. Only thing remaining are two buildings that have been completely renovated for use as office and shower/laundry. Sites are wide and long for pull through. As a note about site length. We were towing a four wheel car trailer behind our 31' MH. Still had plenty of room to park an additional car we had for local transportation. All utilities are new and working. Shower and laundry are absolutely spotless.
One of the best parks we have stayed at for a long time. Will definitely be back. The hosts were extremely pleasant and helpful. - WAM

We stayed at this park last year and decided to come back if we were in the area. It is pleasant looking, spacious and the management are very easy to deal with. From here you can drive down Old Route 66 past the 66 Drive-in Theater (still open) and into the business district of Carthage with it's old town section near the courthouse. Plenty of restaurants in Carthage. - Jake the plumber

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

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 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

First let me say we are"mid century" people. This is an older campground run by the owner. No fancy signs no glitz. What do you get? A serene properly maintained facility with level site and large trees, some probably 60 ft high. Even in October it was 80 degrees so shade was a must for us. Small gazebo and pond. Quiet. A terrific value. There are several newer more expensive campgrounds in town, right on the highway, we chose Ballards and are glad we did. Her store is filled w/an eclectic collection of stuff- some for sale- some not.
We decided to forgo the dinner already cooked to try a place in town. At owners recommendation chose Iggy's Diner- fantastic. Now there are many places to eat- chains- steak- etc. unless you specifically want that menu, try Iggy's. Its a classic burger and malt 1950's diner built in 1998. Food was excellent as was the service. Total cost for two dinners and a shake less than $20- but wait! There was so much food we took half back! The "side"portion of onion rings was enough for two. Just that added feature to our one night stay. - User2700

Stayed here one night while traveling through. We had a nice shady spot that was level. The host was very nice and guided me right to our site. This was my second visit here and I'll stop again on future trips. - Flyertx

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
