Carthage, MO

We arrived in Missouri and decided to stay in Carthage for one night before making our way to Knob Noster State Park.  

When traveling in an RV you have several options for places to stay for a quick one night rest... 1) RV Parks or "Resorts", 2) Stay for free in a Wal Mart Parking lot... we've heard this applies for Home Depot and Lowe's too  3) State Park Campgrounds.   We decided to stop at Big Red Barn RV Resort. 

There wasn't a lot to the city of Carthage Missouri, but Big Red Barn RV Resort was a clean and friendly spot!  They give you chocolate chip cookies when checking in... SCORE!  We were shown our slot for the night and decided to turn in early to get plenty of rest for the last leg of the drive the following day.  


I woke up early for a run and to see if Missouri had a great sunrise... I was in for a treat!  Welcome to Missouri!
