Discover Joplin, MO

The city of Joplin, Missouri, is located west of Springfield and north of Fayetteville. The city of Joplin was named after Reverend Harris Joplin who settled the region during the 1870s - he also helped establish the first Methodist church in the area. The town prospered mainly due to mining as the town has a high number of zinc deposits.

Joplin is widely known for being a hotspot for tornadoes and for the category five storm which tore through the town in 2011. The city's location in "Tornado Alley" makes Joplin the perfect place to rent an RV if you're an avid storm chaser. The city is also dissected by Route 66, so there are many stories and legends told about Joplin due to the high number of travelers who've passed through the area.

The Great Outdoors

One of the best reasons to rent an RV in Joplin is its proximity to Grand Falls. Grand Falls is the largest waterfall in Missouri, drawing visitors from across the state. This continuously running waterfall is very wide and measures over 150 feet across. Grand Falls is the perfect place for a family photo and an ideal spot for a picnic, with plenty of benches scattered around the park. The waterfall features scenic overlooks of the creek below, and children are welcome to play in the small pools surrounding the falls.

If you're looking to discover the great outdoors without leaving the city when you rent a camper in Joplin, MO, consider a visit to Cunningham Park. This park has had a tragic history - known initially as Helicopter Park; this park was destroyed by the 2011 tornado which tore through Joplin. However, thanks in part to the crew members of the TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, this park was fixed and is now an essential part of the community once again. Featuring memorials, large open spaces, and a unique playground for kids, this park is worth a visit to have fun and learn about the city's history.

A great place to visit if you're big on water sports is the Stockton Reservoir near Stockton. This lake covers over 2,500 acres of water and offers something for everyone. The lake features a cove which is ideal for wakeboarding, waterskiing, and kayaking. The lake is also known for being a great fishing spot and is renowned for being one of the best spots to catch walleye in Missouri. Its gentle waves and low winds also make it an excellent spot for sailing, and it's considered to be one of the best lakes in America for sailing.

RV Parks

There are a few campgrounds around the city to consider when you have an RV rental in Joplin, and one of the closest is Joplin Shoal Creek RV Park. This park contains around 80 paved sites, each with full hookups and max amp electric. Roughly half of these sites are pull-through, and there's space for slide outs. Recreation activities include a pond for fishing, and within 10 miles, there is a marina for various water sports.

If you don't mind being farther from the city when you book an RV in Joplin, then consider stopping at the Big Red Barn RV Park in Carthage. This park offers just over 60 all-weather sites, with full hookups and max amp electric. This campground supports both big rigs and slide outs, making for a spacious camping experience. Amenities include showers, restrooms, and laundry facilities, and there are recreation activities such as a rec hall and a playground.

Exploring the City

Due to its size, you should be able to find everything you need in Joplin, and if not, the city of Springfield is about an hour's drive away. There are quite a few attractive places to visit when you have a motorhome rental from Joplin, and one of the best places to visit is the George Washington Carver National Monument. One of the most famous former inhabitants of Joplin, George Washington Carver was well-known for his association with peanuts as well as many inventions. Visitors to this park will learn about the famous inventor through guided tours and can even visit the remains of the log cabin where he was born. This park also contains nature trails, community activities including painting, and a re-creation of the Washington Carver log cabin.

Another way to learn about the city when you rent a camper in Joplin is by visiting the Joplin Museum Complex. This museum highlights many artifacts which were essential to the development of Joplin as well as the country on the whole. One of the main focuses of the museum is the city's mining history, with a fantastic collection of minerals which will astound visitors young and old. It also focuses on Bonnie and Clyde who were famously based in Joplin, as well as the history of Route 66.

If you're a big fan of Bonnie and Clyde and want to learn more about them, then you should stop at the Bonnie and Clyde Hideout. This unassuming building was once occupied by the notorious Barrow gang and now serves as a historic site. The building is now privately owned, and visitors are even able to rent and stay in this historic building. If you're considering an RV rental in Joplin, it makes for the perfect family picture.
