We meet some Montana friends here. Our friends called to make a reservation and was told plenty of sites, no worry. When asked about deposits, was told not a problem. They told the staff that we wanted two sites side by side. They gave them the two site numbers that we would be in. When the Montana couple checked in, they were told again that no problem for side by side sites. Before we arrived, they had parked another camper in "our site". When the Montana coupled inquired as to what the deal was. The owner(?) manager became angry and said they did not guarantee sites with out a deposit. This lead to a headed discussion about what had been said. When we arrived, I asked for my site base on the numbers that we had been given. I assume it was the same lady that had been involved in the previous discussion as the conversation went downhill in a hurry. She said we were parked directly across from our friends so it was not a problem. Not sure what directly across form our friends means to her but being two sites further down was not directly across. While this was my first stay at the Joplin KOA it is also my last stay. Staff was very rude. JMHO. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Laundry is not air conditioned. Washers are two dollars. Dryers are also two dollars Even though the clerk knew I was a cat owner, I was placed right behind a camper who had eight or nine Pomeranians and Chihuahuas. Clerk was rude from the moment I walked in the door. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Motorhome.

Typical KOA, expensive and needs updates. Roads and sites are gravel, making things pretty dusty. Overall okay for a night or two. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice KOA right off I-44 in Joplin. We stopped here at the last minute. Called about 5 minutes before arrival, and they were very accommodating. The owner and his wife are very helpful and the park is very nice and well-kept. I thought it would be loud since it's quite close to the highway, but they put us on the back row in the heavily trees area and it was relatively quiet. It wasn't very crowded as it was on a Sunday evening. We'd stay here again on our way through. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful CG. Clean. Good hosts. Gravel, level sites. Our site was a premium end site with lots of space. Some sites looked to be somewhat close. Easy to get around even with our big rig and toad. Great patio with bench swing, table and chairs. BBQ grill. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for an overnight. Cable didn't work so pulled out satellite. Neighbor who pulled in said he's stayed here before and had trouble with cable in the past too. Didn't contact the office because we had no plans to move sites and satellite was easy to set up. Very nice pond/lake on site. Also has a fenced in dog play area that looked clean. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Motorhome.

Gravel interior roads (dusty). Our site had gravel on parking area remainder is grass. No patio.

Dog park area. Could have been better if pet owners would all be responsible and pickup after their pets.

Staff was very nice and helpful. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Motorhome.

A good over-night KOA near the interstate with long level gravel sites. The noise level is minimal. Utilities function well and the restrooms are clean. A duck 'fishing' pond adds some nice atmosphere. Also, this park has a ample sized fenced dog run. Pizza delivery to your site is a plus. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the Tall Oaks rows, which had some shade. We stayed here in a 38ft coach with tow. The sites were very long and level, they have crushed stone patio area, so you are out of the mud if it rains.

Dog park, playground, pool. Fishing and duck pond. No activities.

The area has good shopping, mostly on Business 49/S.Ridgeline Rd. Not alot of local activities, so if just want to relax and camp, this could work for you. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Motorhome.

Went down to Camping World in Lowel, Arkansas. Not a nice store, so will stick to the Springfield, Missouri store.

Stopped for an overnight stay. Amenities seemed a bit sub par for a KOA. The site was level and had full hookups. The location, immediately adjacent to the Interstate, was very convenient and quiet despite being so close to the highway. Would definitely stay again if needed while traveling. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

I stayed at the Joplin KOA for 2 nights. I would consider this park to be a decent but expensive stop over point, but I would not want to stay at this campground for a long period of time. The campground buildings are showing their age, very close to a truck stop and around 200 yard from the interstate. Not an ideal set up for camping but it did work out for the short time I needed to stay.

(Lot spacing was nearby with sunny/open exposure. Site surface was gravel featuring a picnic table.) We camped at Joplin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed one night on way back to Canada. Excellent pull-thru sites, long enough for 54' with toad and extremely level. Best hookup posts I have ever seen. No truck noise contrary to my expectation. Cable is very, very grainy and not HD...might be analog. Would definitely stop here again. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed overnight here on the way through town. The park was nice and the spaces were long, level, and well spaced. Our section had grass and nice trees. Despite the location near a truck stop and the interstate the noise was not an issue. While the park was nice, the price was a little high. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The rate reflects a 10% KOA discount. It was easy on-and-off access to I-44 behind a truck stop. We didn't really notice excessive noise from the truck stop or the expressway. Wi-Fi was decent. An access code was needed for each device, but we were not charged extra when we requested 3 codes. We had a pull-through site with hook-ups well located. Lots are shaded. Cable TV included. Bathrooms looked like they had newer paint and mirrors. Showers were nice. Just a one night stop for us--it fit the bill. But did seem a bit pricey. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Motorhome.

Our site was level and clean with an escort to the site. Easy in and out from the freeway and easy to maneuver in the park. The staff was friendly and made check in a breeze. We camped at Joplin KOA in a Motorhome.
