O.K. park not to far from freeway, not much noise. Roads and sites are gravel with shade trees. Sites are large enough for 37 foot RV and toad. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) good. We would stay here again. We camped at Ballards RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was an overnight stop for us on a westward swing. After reviewing other campgrounds in the area, we would choose this campsite again. The sites were level and large. The campground manager took me to look at several sites first and then led us to the place. Yes, the sites are gravel, but so what; it drains well in the rain. There are lots of trees, so it may be difficult if you rely on satellite for TV, but we found enough over the air stations from nearby Joplin. WiFi was free, though a bit slow. We used the restrooms and showers and found them clean and comfortable. They had the water on a softener, so it was very soft. It was also a bit on the salty side for taste, but had no bad smell or flavor. Downsides are: some sites are a bit tight to get into, but that is not bad as there are plenty of trees for shade. Interstate road noise is there in the background, though a small hill between the campground and interstate help blunt some of the sound. Finally, be warned, the approach from the north comes at you quickly. There is no Large sign by the road. We went south and turned around in a large lot (warning sign--no turns, but we did anyway) and got back fine. The park looks a bit run down, but I think is a work still in progress. As stated earlier, given other options, we would stay here again. We camped at Ballards RV Park in a Motorhome.

We pulled in after the office was closed and found a great site close to the restroom/showers. I was really surprised how much room each shower cubicle was. Everything was clean. There weren't many units there. The next morning when we were paying, I found out that wifi was available so I asked the lady if I could stay long enough to try and look up some relatives we were wanting to see in our travels. I had some difficulty trying to connect, so she went and looked them up for me. She was a big help. We will definitely go back when we are in the area. We camped at Ballards RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice and quiet private shaded campground. They have full hookups. They also have a nice laundry room. Located near the Precious Moments Chapel. Would recommend. We camped at Ballards RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is not big rig friendly, the roads are gravel and the sites have very little gravel. The couple that runs the park is very helpful but are unable keep up with the needed repairs. Mostly workers stay here. It is very hard to get satellite dishes to work because of trees. I would not recommend this park to anyone. They only have 4 - 50 amp sites and a few sewer sites.

This is a family operation. They are very nice and helpful. The sites were clean and everything worked as advertised. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Ballards RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
