Passport America discount rate of $15 plus $3 for 50 amp electric. The site was gravel, level, and pull-thru with FHU. The services worked well. We had good Verizon voice and data reception and good DishTV satellite reception. The park offers free WiFi, but we did not use it. The park was quiet at night. The owner is quite friendly and helpful. The park is very basic, but is convenient to Oswego and the surrounding area. This was our second stay here and we would stay again. - Dave51

We pulled in on a Saturday afternoon and noticed a slide storage compartment looking strange. This is a compartment that comes out with the slide. By late afternoon on Saturday, I figured I'd have to wait until Monday to find a shop that could weld the broken bolts. The manager spent some time looking at the problem and then said he has an uncle that could weld those parts. I was somewhat skeptical but Sunday morning the manager and his uncle took the parts and came back about an hour later with them welded together. The manager and I installed the bolts and we were under way by noon Sunday. Neither would take any money for the help. Such a great thing to know there are still people out there that will help you simply because they can. I know if I ever get back in that area that's where I'll stay and I suggest you do too. Sites were level, with good power & septic. - robertgil356

Owner is extremely friendly and very accommodating - we required service repair from a mobile RV service and ended up having to stay extra days due to problems getting the parts and the repairman then having his own vehicle problems! Owner told us not to worry about paying for the extra days, but we paid anyway since it was a very good value with Passport America and we were using electricity, water and sewer! All utilities worked well and site was fairly level. WIFI was generally good, even though we were not close to the booster, but it did have a couple of hiccups we had to wait out. Still, able to pay bills and other necessities, so no big problem. Over-the-air (antenna) television was fine (about 20 stations, but some have the same shows). The park is divided in half, with one side being older mobile homes. Very quiet and there is plenty of room to walk a dog or just yourself! Grocery store is also within easy walking distance. No laundry facilities in the park. Would definitely return here if in the area again. - 2Brdz_Trvl

Stayed one night passing through. Very basic park. Hard to locate-Street address given to us does not work with GPS and we ended up in a park by the swimming pool-called and they were nice enough to send a man to lead us to the campground. Sites are not level. Shower house door does not shut so luckily we were the only campers in the park. We would not stay here again. - ouachita princess

We camped here on our way home from Colorado. The park is owned by the City of Oswego. Rustic setting, trees galore. Cost was $10. Very nice quiet place to spend the night. Park was patrolled by the Oswego City Police. Definitely would stay here again. - We3Brvn

Stayed on the north side. Went into town to pay at the city office. Since we made reservations in advance, the power was unlocked when we got there. No camp host or check in on site. Nice views of the reservoirs. Good cell reception and even free WiFi. A short drive into town. Small swing set for kids. - BrewingAdventure

This RV park was just what we were looking for. Just a place to relax and do nothing for the weekend. 20 full hook-up sites. 10 are on the lake. All pull-thru and in the sun. 10 are on the dam side and are shaded to mostly shaded. 3 of these are pull through with 2 being very long. Each site includes full hook-ups, picnic table and fire ring. This is run by the city and a police officer will come by to pick up your payment. There is a bath house that we were told even has a laundry facility. We have stayed here twice in the last month. You can fish in the lake or there is a nice Frisbee golf course available as well. Otherwise, nothing to do around here except sit back and relax and enjoy a good book. - cwbassman

Terrific value in this little park! Nice and quiet. Beautiful sunsets over the lakes. Police patrol several times a day. Hookups are all newer and in good shape - they are locked until you pay. Call when you arrive and an officer will come out to take payment, or you can stop at City Hall during business hours. It was pretty empty in late October, but you'll probably want reservations in the summer months. The website has all the info. you'll need. Half the sites are extra long pull-throughs, including 2 that must be at least 150 feet. - a_elkins

Not bad! Not bad at all! In fact, for free, it was great. This is not a park but 8 RV sites on the back side of small casino. There is farm land surrounding the area - very quiet and peaceful. The first 3 days is FREE and $10 after that. There is 30/50 amp and water - no sewer. The sites are very long - room enough for any size RV. The casino is just a short way out of town, about 5 miles; and surprisingly, Miami OK is just large enough to have just about anything you might need. There is a train track very close by that has about 5 or 6 trains go by a day. We would come back here again as a stop over. - jomark

This is a great place to park for 3 nights free! There is a train close by but I did not find it annoying. There is a great restaurant a few miles up the road in town called the Buttered Buns. Great place to get home cooked style meals. - Sharonc

This was a complimentary very spacious pull through site. Good utilities with wifi but no cable TV. Perfect for a one night stay over. - Altoflyfisher
Oct 2012 - $12.00
Nice small city park downtown. All 6 sites are 30amp FHU long pull throughs. Easy access for large rigs. No trees so rooftop TV dish worked well, Sprint cell & data was slow on roaming. One site had open ground on power post and city responded first thing next morning to repair, fast! Paid at city hall/water department, no office at small park. Small pond adjacent to sites. Good location to stay for annual Columbus balloon festival. - big greg

This is a clean park with traffic noise and train noise.
Sites are wide, near-level grass and gravel, in various lengths. A few have shade or picnic tables. Voltage is good.
Roads are gravel in very good condition.
Verizon LTE works well.
There are strong terrestrial broadcast signals from ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and PBS.
No rest rooms, showers, WiFi, cable, laundry, or credit cards. - wjzcbn

Very nice and quite private campground. They have full hookups. Would recommend. - timenazi

We stayed from November 5th through January 5th. The good: Good sized spots Excellent monthly rate Everything you need is within a 10 minute drive Friendly managers Free lunch on Wednesdays Good sized washers and dryers The bad: A few of the spots collect water around the services Sewer is at or below grade, making hookup a little difficult Free WiFi is limited to near the office (but they are improving) I'm from the area and this park has developed leaps and bounds in the past few years. - Just Wandering

Easy access off the turnpike. 16 pull through sites in front of mobile home park about 100 yards from the highway but there was little highway noise at night. Daily rate reflects $150 weekly rate. WiFi was functional but slow. We received several OTA channels including all the networks. Staff was exceptionally friendly. - Betsy_02
Oct 2017 - $27.00
This is a decent, clean campground with easy access to the I-44 Turnpike. A trailer park and long term campers in the back with the transient sites in front. Easy pull thrus with good utilities. It's corporately owned and managed by onsite residents. Staff was friendly and efficient. Good for an overnighter. Only negatives were the excessive road noise from E Steve Owens Rd, train nearby and the park is lit up like a mall parking lot. So bring your ear plugs and black-out shades. Sites require some leveling. - jl2000

This park was very nice to stay in while we worked to help the Red Cross using our motorhome as a base during the tornado restoration work that we did. Each pedestal at each site has a 30 amp as well as a 50 amp hookup, with good electricity and has good water pressure also available. In addition, there is a dump station in the park as well. Virtually every site is fully shaded, with parking on asphalt large enough to place all wheels of a 40' motor-home off the grass. As instructed we called the Police Department for permission to stay and the Lady there suggested that we might prefer to come to the Police station to avoid any potential hassle with regards to paying. We understood that the Police are busy, however we regularly saw them patrolling the road alongside the park, but we knew that we should pay the $10 nightly fee, and so we took her suggestion. Our stay there was uneventful, peaceful, and we would stay there again. - jmorgan54

No facilities at this park just porta potties. Took moving three times to find a plug-in that worked. Very kid friendly has a huge park with playground. You have to go by the police department to get the permit they wouldn't come out for us so best to stop on the way by. - G_Escape

We stayed here while driving Route 66. Campers need to contact the Baxter Springs Police Department for a permit to camp. Even though we called the police department, no one ever came to collect the fee. A dump station is available. There are both back-in and pull-thru sites. Grass was long but it had been rainy for a few weeks. We were able to wash our rig and tow car at our site. We would stay here again. - thetravelkids

Spending one night here, previous reviews are still accurate though it has been 5 years since the last one was posted. Price is still $10 per night, I am here on a Sunday night and most of the spaces were taken when I arrived at sunset. It looks like some have been here for a long time (tank totes and lawn furniture set up) even though the sign at the payment drop says max stay of 10 days out of every 30. Sites appear to all be back in, I found it somewhat challenging getting into the space I selected due to sharp turn and narrow gravel roadway. - Isaac-1

I know where the park's name comes from since it was a "Marvel" I found the place. My GPS brought me in the back way, but upon leaving I left what was the correct entrance off of Main St. Price has gone up since the other reviews but that is to be expected. It is quiet and maybe a third of the sites offer shade depending where the sun is. The restrooms/showers involved a bit of a hike but were OK. I'd rate it higher but some long-term residents detracted from the setting. - Traveler John

I've camped at a number of city parks, and this is one of the nicer ones. While the entrance to Marvel City Park is on main street, the campground is a good distance from the highway so it's quiet and secluded. The park is very clean and well maintained. It's well worth the $5 camping fee. For $1.50 you can use the city swimming pool complex (pool, slides and showers- open during the summer) located in the adjoining city park, within walking distance of the campground. Stay limit is now 7 days. - Traveling man

Nice site overlooking the grand lake of the cherokee's. The sites are close to a busy highway, but the road noise seemed to die down at night. - midnightpumpkin

Wonderful park, friendly troopers, peaceful, tranquil and lots of large open space. There is an upper and lower campground. The lower is lakefront and the upper is in the trees and wide open. Would go back in a minute if we were in the area. - Layne

State Park is rather spread out. We stayed here as an overnight on our way through. It's about 15 minutes south of the interstate. Though the bath rooms were pretty clean, some were starting to show their age. Good value. We would stay here again - pmbeaty
