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!
We stayed one night while driving through on I-40. It is a small, quiet, and friendly staffed campground. We pulled in after dark and were swarmed by mosquitoes, so bring your can of off this time of year. Facilities were immaculate and the staff was wonderful; ensured we received our children camp for free discount and offered my kids 1/2 hour free use of banana bikes. The campground is small and close to I-55, there was some truck noise, but we slept fine with A/C on. Perfect short stay campground as activities are on the light side. The staff had a breakfast available $4.95 all you can eat. We stayed during the middle of the week. We would stay again if passing through Memphis area.
This is a nice campground and staff, perfect park for children and adults alike. We stayed two nights during mid-week, so it was not very crowded. Very few of the sites are level, so plan on leveling your rig. There are plenty of activities for children, Yogi characters available, putt-putt, pool and facilities clean. The Ranger station was very clean with helpful staff, plus stocked with many items you may have forgotten at home. There is a very cool water slide, the kids loved it; $8/day or $15 for entire stay. It is a nice place to visit and we plan to stay again if in the area.
