The park is easy to access and maneuver through. Interior roads are paved, sites are gravel and level. Most of the park has mature trees and is heavily shaded but there is a section in the sunshine with good satellite reception. No restrooms, but the laundry was clean with a nice book exchange. Electric, water (softened!), sewer and wifi worked well. Over the air TV stations were available. Verizon phone and data were available in the area. Staff was friendly and the park was attractive with whimsical decorations, bird feeders and squirrel feeders. The park was quiet with only minimal traffic noises. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very clean, well managed park. Conveniently located right off 49 near the 44 junction. Even though it was close to the highway, you couldn't really hear the road noise. Sites are gravel but level, full hook-ups plus cable. Clean laundromat (in the same building as the office). 4 sets of washer/dryers, $1.75/$1.25 per load. Excellent T-Mobile and AT&T cell reception. No fire pits or picnic tables. Located directly across from their RV sales/service center. Convenient to shopping in Carthage (about 3 miles), and easy access to Joplin. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Visit Colaw RV Salvage (the biggest RV salvage in the U.S.) We replaced our dinette with a Thomas Payne leather loveseat recliner while staying at Coachlight. They receive a lot of overstock furniture directly from factories.

Fast and courteous check-in and escort to site. Paved roads to a gravel site. Narrow but long enough for us not to have to unhook for one night on the way home. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Just a convenient stop for a night on the way home but if you need to spend a few days, Joplin is a few miles down the road and lots of stores and restaurants around.

Nice park, plenty of trees, fairly quiet despite closeness to highway. This park has the best set of rules I have ever read, a good mix of whimsy along with the serious. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Adjacent RV service/supply center is convenient. Mile or so into town for shopping, food, etc. Carthage Family Restaurant on N Garrison is worth the trip. Giant RV salvage yard (Colaw) is about 5 miles away.

Very easy to access and manipulate. Most roads are one way but the gentleman who took us to our sites did explain that with large rigs /coaches it was okay to go the wrong way on the circle road. It was very clean and definitely pet friendly. It was a great idea to have the RV sales/repair basically next door (you came into the park via the parking lot). We only stayed one night but it was quiet, probably because it is in a bit of a valley. Very enjoyable, would definitely stay again. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This cg is just a good basic all around place to stay, whether it be for a couple of days or maybe a week or so. We have stayed here at least 1-2 times every year for8-10 years. The rv Newmar dealership next door is the owner and has a good selection of parts and service also. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park but close to the shooting range so lots of shooting until they closed. Nice park but no rest rooms or showers that I could fine. Staff very friendly and helpful. Sites were pull thru, easy access to water, electric and sewer. Level sites with gravel, no table or fire ring. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

First Impression: From the road, extremely attractive - inside the CG, about the same. Safety: no concerns. Access: Exit 47 off I-49, west side to the frontage road. Gigantic signs - can't be missed. Municipal roads in good condition. Garmin GPS has the CG. Office: Friendly staff. Very token store (candy bars, few RV necessities, ice cream). Next to their RV dealership so RV parts are no problem. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations not available. No price discounts. Facilities: No pool, spa, or fitness room. Large meeting room. Clean laundry room. No restrooms or showers. Propane at the dealership. No playground. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. Storm shelter available. Heavily wooded. Interior roads are wide, asphalt with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. No tent area, yurts, or cabins. Sites are all spacious, gravel, pull-through and back-in, level, manicured grass landscaping. Utilities at mid-rig with FHU-20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" unthreaded, at ground level. No patios; no picnic tables. Open fires not permitted but grills are okay. Poor satellite views (tall trees). Free cable TV (46 channels). Free Wi-Fi with excellent coverage and bandwidth. Verizon phone and 4G at 4 bars. No recycle bins. RV and vehicle washing IS PERMITTED. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, traffic, or interstate noise. Bug Report (mid July): small red ants, all over, everywhere. Runners: CG roads good for running. Yoga: place your mat on the grass if so inclined. Conclusion: Score 7-Good despite having no amenities. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Let me start by saying what others have noted, THERE ARE NO RESTROOMS OR SHOWERS AVAILABLE. As long as you know that, and understand that you will need to use your in-RV facilities for EVERYTHING, you will love this RV campground. Heavily shaded, spacious spots, quiet and clean. Good WiFi (several towers within campground). Nice pet area. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Quaint is the word that comes to mind for this park. The staff at check in was really nice, and we were given an escort to our site. Lush, green grass everywhere, lots of critters to watch (squirrels, deer, etc) on one of the many swings set up around the park. Good water pressure, roads were wide enough, pull through site long enough for a big rig. It was right off the interstate, but in a little valley so the road noise wasn't heard. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
