Easy access from I-49, however, only minimal road noise. Good gravel interior roads and sites; sites fairly roomy and level, with shade trees and grass between sites. Woman who checked us in was friendly and helpful, and escorted us to our site. Though minutes from Carthage, this park has a "country" feel; with plenty of room to walk my dogs. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Courthouse on the square in Carthage is impressive - worth the short drive into town to see it. About a block off the square is a small Civil War museum, which tells the story of the Battle of Carthage. Very interesting, and operates on donations.

We only stayed one night but this is a campground that we would have liked to have stayed longer. It is clean and well maintained. When we checked in, we got two yummy cookies, still warm! The office store was well stocked. I peeked in the bathroom and it appeared clean and well maintained also. The sites are level and the the interior roads were easy to navigate. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park with lots of grassy areas. Decent grass space between units. Wifi, cable TV. Verizon signal okay. No pool or spa. Very quiet with minimal highway noise. No planes or trains. No dog park but plenty of comfort stations. Trash bins throughout the park. Tight turns in and out at entrance but okay within the park itself. Lots of shade trees throughout the park. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
