Very low hanging tree branches on the county road to the park and within the park kept me from rating higher. Park managers seemed unconcerned about the trees on the county road saying it was not their problem. The park seemed to have quite a few permanent residents, but the place is very clean, with good sized level sites. Lots of family activities. One surprise was the lack of trash receptacles - you had to go to the far end of the park to find one. Aside from the tree branches and lack of trash bins, it was a nice park.

Rate reflects the Good Sam discount. This campground continues not to disappoint! We managed to call after hours to get a spot at the last minute and after a returned phone call (10 minutes tops)we had reservations. Lot's of amenities for kids. Staff had exceptional attitudes. Elec worked as supposed to with very stable power. Concrete level parking pad. Lot's of space between sites. This was a great camping experience! We camp here regularly (2x this year).

Awesome park! Lots of activities for the kids. There is a swimming pool with a splash park. They have recently added a water balloon station. Frisbee golf has been added as well. Trout fishing in the river is excellent. We like the central location of the campground so close to the many lakes and rivers in the area. Within minutes you can be at Lake Tenkiller, Greenleaf State Park, Arkansas River, and of course the Lower Illinois River which runs right through the campground. Can't say enough about this gem. We definitely will be back. We camped at MarVal Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

A friendly, well-run, and lovely place to camp. The folks were very helpful; we had an escort to our pull-through space. A neighbor lent us a socket wrench and helped us with a water connection. The restrooms and showers are immaculate, and the entire campground looks like a fun place to be in the high season. We would definitely consider making this a destination campground. We've had a very nice overnight stay. We camped at MarVal Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Park is beautiful. There are cottages and RV slots. Our space is a little small for a 39-ft rig but they did accommodate us at the last minute and the space they wanted to give us was unexpectedly occupied. The ground has more of a slope than I would like, it's hard to get our 5'er level without lifting the tires off the ground. If they have pull through sites, they don't have a river view that I can tell. That aside, the staff is very friendly and the river view is very nice to wake up to. There is a small store at the office and lots of activity centers. The town of Gore is somewhat small but there is a grocery store, a small cafe, pizza joint, and a hardware store. People are very nice here but it is somewhat remote. We camped at MarVal Family Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Outstanding family park! We got a free night because we stayed 5 nights. All reviews have pretty much covered everything. The pool was closed, but it looked very nice. So many activities for children! There were huge rains when we were there. It would help if a little more gravel could be spread; some of the cabins had loblollies around them, but the kids had a great time even though the Trail of Terror had to be cancelled because of the rain. That and the location of the trash were the only things that needed to be improved. We definitely want to come back. Everyone was extremely friendly. The Sunday morning breakfast was nice.

Good Sam rate for a pull-thru full hookup. This is a family destination Park, even though we only used it for a one-nighter. Six-miles off I-40, quiet at night. Our site was a level concrete pad, shade trees, fire pit and picnic table. Lots and lots of stuff for kids do do, and the Illinois River runs through the grounds. Individual locking rooms for the showers and bathrooms, very clean. Wifi and cable TV worked fine. Friendly staff. The biggest negative is no garbage cans anywhere, why?

This was our second time at this park. We had all our grandkids (5) and their mothers (2) join us on this trip so we rented a cabin as well as a campsite. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers we very clean as well as the campground in general. The cabin was clean and the kids enjoyed sleeping in the loft. There are plenty of activities for everyone or you can just sit back and relax. We will camp here again. We camped at MarVal Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

I would have given them a 10 as this campground has it all except decent trash pickup. You have to take your trash down a road 1/2 mile to put it in the dumpster. With all the work-campers here I can't imagine they can't have trash cans closer to the sites and pick them up daily. We camped at MarVal Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

Our first time at this campground. We took our two oldest grand kids, 7 and 8 years old, and they loved it. Lots to do for kids and adults. Playground, recreation hall, activity building, swimming pool, miniature golf, trout fishing and much more. The campworkers were very friendly and helpful. The restrooms/showers were clean as well as the campground in general. We are planning to camp here several times this summer. We camped at MarVal Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Nice place, but be careful getting to it. We used our GPS, but should have followed the campground's directions. The is a sign at a crossroads outside the campground, but it is very misleading on where to turn. We missed the correct turn and had to drive for miles before we could turn around. However, once we were there, the stay was nice. The park was clean and spacious with large and level pads. The interior roads were narrow in some parts, but we were able to get around them. The campground has a lot of amenities as indicated on their web site, but we were only there one night and didn't get to enjoy them. We camped at MarVal Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.Undo

We would have given this campground a ten, but you had to drive a half a mile or so to take your garbage to their trash compactor. There are no local trash cans and they don't pick up. We had a great view out our front window of the river, but had to plug into the outlets next to us because their sites are designed to back-in instead of drive in forward. The staff were very nice about letting us do this because it was only for one night and there were no other campers in our section (312-315).

Wow...what a great place. There are nice camp sites with room between campers; very level concrete pads for most. There is a mix of permanent campers and visitors. If you like trout fishing, this is the perfect location in OK. There are plenty of friendly staff on site. The facilities were sparkling clean; pool needed a little attention, but overall great for kids. The staff will direct you to each site and ensure you know how to hook up. The Residents were friendly and access to river was awesome. OK fish and game stocks the river each week with trout and everyone seemed very happy with their stay at MarVal. We stayed on a Friday evening and it was nice and peaceful when quiet hours hit. We plan to camp here again this fall when it's a little cooler and the fish are biting more!

Park is a great family park, a little hard to find but worth it. Great trout fishing. The trash is a vehicle drive away, which makes it difficult. We camped at MarVal Family Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.Undo
