Nice older park that is well maintained. Very close to Joplin. Even though just off I-49, noise was not a problem. The park has nice grassy dividers between rows. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Check in was quick and rather perfunctory but we did get an escort to our site. Our site is gravel and we didn't need leveling blocks at all.Good spacing between sites and plenty of room for the tow vehicle. Utility hookups were in a good central location for our trailer. Cable tv is good with plenty of channels to watch. Wifi signal is good but I could not connect to the Internet with my laptop. My smartphone connected just fine though. This park is well away from the highway. No trains or planes. Just birds chirping and roosters crowing and lots of trees. This is one of the nicest parks we've been in and one of the most affordable. I highly recommend it (unless trees interfere with your satellite reception). We'd come back in a heartbeat. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice grassy areas for our dog and a playground was accessible at a neighboring church for our 5 year old to play on. Laundry room and restrooms were clean. The office provided a variety of snacks and nick knacks. Very quiet, with lots of shady trees. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very good experience, great pull-through for big rigs. Nice green spaces with trees between sites. Clean, quiet, easy in and easy out. We were 36', plus a toad. Level site. Will definitely stay again. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Only overnighted here on our way to AZ. Had a nice pull thru site which was ok and was easy to get in and out of. Didn't use the rest rooms or showers. Had just rained big time and water was standing which was not an issue. My only issue was the dog droppings at the site. Guess the prior occupant had a small dog that they didn't like to pick up after. They have a dog park, but it apparently wasn't used. We were in site 29. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent quick check in, escort to choice of sites. We enjoyed making a campfire in their roomy community area by the creek. Do ask for the ladys cinnamon buns she makes every morning. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Older park layout so close to your neighbor. Sites are level gravel, roads paved. Showers/restroom clean and tidy, getting a bit dated. Good privacy. Huge cable selection. Really good wifi .

Park is a little ways out of Carthage but most important, no train racket or highway sizzle. This being early fall, the cicadas sing at dusk. Crickets lulled us to sleep.

Stop by for morning coffee and chat with the owner on the front porch. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Precious Moments is nearby and free. The County Courthouse is amazing

and a must see. There is a tour. Nearby Joplin has everything you'd expect in a large town.

We stopped for the night and found a broken leaf spring on the trailer. Ended up staying 6 nights waiting for parts and repair. CG accommodated our needs and folks were very helpful getting our repairs done. they suggest a mobile tech who did a good job at a reasonable price. We would stay here again if in the area.

Easy access to freeway and to Joplin and Carthage. Very clean campground and very clean showers and restroom. Site was level but the sites are very narrow so RVs are very close to each other so there is very little privacy. Sites are a combination of grass and rock and on the morning I was preparing the RV for departure a guy on a riding lawn mower began to mow the RV site immediately beside my site. That was very dangerous as the mower can launch rocks if they are hit just right . . I saw this happen to a family member years ago . . When the rock hit the human flesh at great speed it required an er visit and several stitches to close the wound. If this is a normal practice it should be stopped as it is a serious safety concern. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was our 8th stay at this park in the past 12-years. We keep coming back because we really like it and the wife feels very safe here. Most of the sites are pull-thru's and long enough for big rigs (we are 39' plus our toad). 30/50 amp, water, sewer and cable at each site and there is a clear view of the sky from virtually all sites for satellite.

The staff is extremely friendly and caring and will do just about anything it takes to make you comfortable. They offer free coffee and mini-muffins at the office in the morning.

The grounds are clean and quiet. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Actually this park is just off I-49 off the Fir Street exit. Rough paved roads with gravel sites. We had problem with a 50amp breaker at the pedestal and they replaced the breaker rather quickly and we had no furher problems.
Staff was super friendly and had great sense of humor which made check in nice. Weekends they will cook hot dogs and burgers for you for a reasonable price. Park was pretty empty with a lot of folks just spending the night. The park has a rustic feel. We were far enough away from I-49 not to hear the traffic noise. Walmart and restaurants are just 2 miles away. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for ten nights, some highway noise however no trains or planes. We don't use amenities so this was perfect for us. The staff are all friendly, the office has ice, ice cream and jarred condiments. The condiments we bought were really good. The sites are nice and level with a concrete patio and picnic table. There is grass for walking the dog. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.
