At our campground near Springfield, we pride ourselves on our friendly spirit and welcoming atmosphere. Join us for outdoor adventures, cultural attractions, and a serene place in which to relax.

    The Big Red Barn RV Park is south of Carthage just 1 1/2 miles from the Wal-Mart Super Center.

    The park is 1/3 mile east of US 71 and from Wal-Mart just go south on Grand Ave. to S. Grand and follow the signs.

    From Interstate 44:
    Exit from I-44 at exit 18-B and go north on US 71. (for those of you traveling from Oklahoma DO NOT exit at 8-B); stay on US 71 for three miles then exit at the Garrison Ave. exit; slow down and turn right onto S. Grand following the signs to Elm Rd. ( it's one mile from this turn to Elm Rd.), then left on Elm Rd. for 1/3 mile to the park entrance.

    From from north of Carthage:
    Locate US 71 north of Carthage and travel south on US 71 driving past the city (which will be on your left) and exit at the "HH, Fir Rd." exit... at the top of the exit ramp turn left and cross over US 71 then travel one mile to the traffic signal at Grand Ave. Turn right at this signal and travel approximately 1/3 mile watching closely for S. Grand on the left. Turn left onto S. Grand following it for 1 mile to Elm Rd. Turn left on Elm Rd. for 1/3 mile to Big Red Barn RV Park.

    If you are traveling on US 96 or "old Route 66" continue either eastbound or westbound until you reach US 71 and turn south onto US 71 continuing until you see the "HH/Fir Rd. exit'. Take that exit and follow the directions from above.
