We called ahead to make a one night reservation. Courteous and helpful on the phone. Drove right to our site that evening after picking up simple paperwork. Looked like a nicely planned park and very well kept. Easy interstate access. Road noise was surprisingly minimal. Nice to know that an RV sales and service was very near by if needed. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A first- class big rig operation and always a pleasure to stay here. They will point out points of interest in the area, like Red Oak II, an incredible tourist attraction. Very spacious big rig pull throughs, easy access off the freeway. Spaces to the north are more open and easier for satellite reception. We were able to pull into the space with our tow, all the hookups lined up, then we left without having to disconnect. Can't go wrong with Mike and his staff! We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Historical points in Carthage, Red Oak II where an artist has brought in houses from many areas and placed them along a drive you take. Like going back in time. An astonishing, and little known tourist attraction that will leave you talking.

We were greeted warmly by the staff and felt very welcome, and were then escorted to our site. They arranged for our friends (Three RV's) who were arriving the next day, to all remain in Sites close together. This RV Resort is kept in immaculate condition with constant attention to details. A Nice, clean, laundry facility is in the same building as the registration office.
The sites were roomy, about 70' in length
It should be noted that the free cable TV, and Wi-Fi are both excellent. The Wi-Fi was fast and reliable.
There is an RV Sales and maintenance facility nest door.
It is hard to find any negative to mention about this RV Resort. I would return here any time we are in this area. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is shopping and a variety of restaurants nearby. Try the Red Onion in Joplin, or the Sirloin Stockade in Carthage.

We stayed 4 nights to visit some sites in the area.

The park is close to I-49/US-71 (W 52nd St/Cedar Lane) but there is very little noise from the Interstate.

The park was well cared for and landscaped.

The interior roads are paved. The site parking pads are a mixture of concrete or gravel. The roads were narrow considering some were for 2-way traffic. The pull through sites were long enough for coaches and their toads. The sites were generally level. There is not much privacy between the sites as the sites are close to each other. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer. The utility connections were towards the middle of the sites. Some sites have an outside table & grill.

There are basically two different types of camp areas. One has an extensive tree canopy which almost prevents any type of satellite reception depending on site assignment and your dish configuration. The other has some sites with open access to the sky for satellite reception. There was an extensive choice of cable channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels.

The park provided WiFi was good. Our NET10 phone reception was acceptable.

No designated fenced pet area but there was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. There were several pet waste collection stations consisting of bag dispensers and cans to dispose of waste around the park.

For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, didn't see an underground storm shelter or any structure identified as a severe weather shelter but the park had a plan to notify the residents and evacuate them to the park's storm shelter in case of severe weather.

Would stay here again if returning to visit the area. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We made several daytrips out to visit several National Park Sites (Fort Scott National Historic Site, KS; Pea Ridge National Military Park, AR; and George Washington Carver NM & Wilson's Creek NB, MO)

This has always been one of our favorite places to stop. Generally, it is still a great place to stop. However, this time the cable tv reception was poor, especially for the major networks. We got better reception on the antenna. Also, our site (#15) could use gravel as it was a bit muddy due to recent rains. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

There are nice level sites and most have shade. Most are pull through. There are a few sites with area workers. The only problem is one of them drove a honey wagon and the smell was not sweet. This is our third year at this park with our RV club. We will be back for the next 2 years. We had two nights of severe wind warnings. They were very good to get everyone up and provide a safer place to stay till the winds placed. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly staff. Escorted to our site. We did not need help but he seemed willing to help if needed. They seem particular, which is probably why the campground is in such good shape.

About ¾ of the campground is sloped and the sites are terraced. They are mostly long pull-through sites, but many of them are narrow so that you would not have enough room to set up chairs, etc. under your awning. Less than half of these sites had a concrete patio. In this area there were large, mature trees providing shade.

The remaining ¼ of the campground, was a lower, flat area with no trees and flat sites. All of these sites were large and had cement patios.

Great Wi-Fi . Several boosters in campground. No extra charge.

We could not hear hardly any at all despite proximity to freeway.

Laundry room has 2 washers and 4 dryers with a long folding table.

Rules of note: No dog pens at sites. No clotheslines. You are free to wash your rig.

Nice for overnight and would be good for longer term if there was a reason to be in this area.

There were several longer term residents as evidenced by wooden stairs/decks, extra large propane bottles, etc. All were well kept. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Next to Coachlight RV sales and service.

This is our 2nd time at Coachlight, we have family in Carthage and Joplin and the location is convenient, near I-44 & I-49, no road noise. Park is easy to enter & exit. Hook ups all work well, we ran 3 ACs on the 50 amp. Sites a re gravel, level, spacious enough for 4 slides and tow. We were in lower section, upper was full. Lower had no shade trees and Directv worked well. Upper section has beautiful shade trees and large area (not fenced) for pets. 3 wifi stations in park, so signal was great. Coachlight did repair work on our coach on last visit and we were very happy with work and how accommodating there were. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nothing right by the park, but almost anything you need for your coach or personal is within 10-15 mi of location.

Great park hidden behind a RV dealership in a shaded finely manicured campground. Long & wide gravel sites with paved interior roads. Good Wi-Fi. Part of the park is unshaded, if satellite access is needed. Very friendly staff that were helpful and escorted us to our site. The best dog walk area I've ever seen in a campground. Only a mile or so off I-44 for easy off and on. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

I like this park. The upper section gives you shade in the trees and the lower section is in the sun with good size pull throughs. Would give it a 10 if sites were paved. Roads are paved but sites are crushed stone. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Following restaurants are unique. Lucky J, a restaurant overlooking a riding arena with groups practicing most nights and Undercliff a middle class biker bar with great food built into/under a rock cliff.

Love this place, friendly people running the place and helping during the tornado warning. You wouldn't think that a park next to an RV dealer could be this lovely. Would love to come here again. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Well kept park with friendly staff. They do not offer any social activities even though they have a very nice community room. Laundry area clean but took two cycles in the dryer, which made it very expensive. Would stay again but just a day or two. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

A first-class RV park, especially for large rigs. Staff was very helpful in pointing out points of interests near Carthage. They even gave us their morning paper when we couldn't find one. Easy access into town, one exit away. Very clean and well maintained with level shaded sites. One of the managers pointed out where Red Oak II is, one of Missouri's most secret attractions, for some reason. It's not on a lot of maps but if you are in the area, you must see this incredible tourist attraction, with free admission. An artist has assembled historic homes from the area and lined them up on a street you drive through. It's like the Twilight Zone.... What a delight. Thanks for telling us, Coachlight RV! We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful place, but be aware that units must be self contained. There are no restrooms or showers. Roads are paved and wide. Sites are gravel and have plenty of room. Some have lots of shade, others have none. We had no trouble with any of the utilities including WiFi. Even though it is close to a highway, it was very quiet here. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. We recommend staying here. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived fairly late (just before 10:00PM) but were still met immediately by friendly staff. The lady who met us took our payment, took time to talk to us about our needs, and escorted us to our clean, wide, level space. We hooked up to the 50 amp service with no trouble, and in the area where we stayed for our overnight stay, we had great DirecTV service. The park was immaculate, interior roads wide and well paved, and the gravel sites were level and clean. The park is a mile north of I-44 so it is conveniently located. We will definitely put this on our list of places to stay while traveling in the area. No restrooms or showers so not a "10" but a great place to stay if your RV has an adequate shower and restroom. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.
