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. We camped at Marvel City Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Marvel City Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Marvel City Park in a Travel Trailer.

Yes, $5!! This is a city park, but a very well kept facility. 12 large RV sites, all with 30 amp and water. It's right behind the football stadium, so the weekends could be possibly loud. We camped mid-week and all of the ball fields were dark by 9:30. This is located in the Marvel City Park, on Main street just about 7 blocks east of downtown. Dump station right on sight. Good power and water. Very RV friendly. 10 night maximum stay. Restaurants and stores are very close. Very quiet area, well maintained, and we'll definitely stop-over again as we travel through southeast Kansas. We camped at Marvel City Park in a Fifth Wheel.
