We had a pleasant enough experience. Nice big sites, quiet country setting. Bathrooms were a little disappointing, one shower was out of service so my daughters and I opted to shower in the camper instead. Would most likely stay here again if I pass through this area another time.

Very friendly when we got there. Discount with good Sam membership, and free cookies that were very good. I did three loads of laundry , used reg soap not pods. Clean and no one there at night. The only complaint I have is the bathroom and showers had 5 spiders. So I bathed in the trailer. It was very quiet...

Thank you for your review. I do wish you had called us or come to the office to tell us about the spiders. They are horrible this year due to the very mild winter last year. Ticks and flea's where out of control until we treated the property, yet I am sure we still have some. I will have the...

Pull through sites plenty long enough. Gravel level sites with concrete slab for table. Small campstore sells some speciality food items. Offers good Sam's discount on site and store items. Give you 2 welcome cookies. Quiet and spread out well. Not many amenities but was great for one night stay.

We stopped for three nights to visit family in Carl Junction. It was a short commute, and we had access to Walgreens, Lowes and Walmart in a short trip. Will stay here again! They also have a few cute gifts and specialty rubs, jellies and sauces for sale in their office.

This is a great little park just off I40 and I49. Sites are long and level. They are gravel with most having 50 amps and full hookups. The place is well taken care of and has quite a few flowers and antique farm implements as access. Directions seem a bit confusing but are really straight forward for tired travelers looking...
