Basswood Resort, Platte City, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Our family stays here several times every summer, and we love the place. It is by far the best RV campground in the Kansas City area, and for quite some distance in every direction. The facilities and amenities are excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful. I have seen a few complaints about the bathrooms and showers, but we have never noticed any problem, and in fact, we think they are very clean and well maintained for an RV park. This is not the Ritz Carlton, people, it's a campground. Two things that make Basswood stand out are the store and the activities. First, the store is incredible (during the RV season). It is fully stocked with groceries, RV and camping supplies, alcohol, toys, and everything else. Whoever selects the inventory does a great job! They have Hunt Brothers pizza, which they deliver to your campsite. There is also other hot food available. They can fill your propane tanks. As for activities, the options are excellent. The pool is great and well maintained. There is a large playground next to the pool. There is a volleyball area, another area for horseshoes and shuffleboard. There are fishing ponds and trails through the woods. They have an outdoor movie theater that plays family movies on Saturday night, which our kids love, with outdoor seating, and a table set up behind the seating area for the sale of fresh popcorn, candy, etc. I'm sure there are other activities that I have failed to mention. As for the park in general, the roads are paved. The RV sites are level, with maybe a few minor exceptions. The types of RV spots vary for every type of set-up. We have had no problems with the cable. The WiFi is not great, but it works. Our only complaint is the airplane traffic, but some days are better than others. There are excellent cabins, which also vary in location, including several isolated cabins in the trees. The tent spots look incredible. We love this place, and will be back next season for as many weekends as possible. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Clinton State Park, Lawrence, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Very clean, nice RV spots, paved roads, and lots of activities. The park is right on the lake, and some spots have lake views. It seems that the State of Kansas is neglecting its State Parks over the last few years due to lack of funding, but we still enjoy camping here and in other Kansas State Parks. The towns of Lawrence and Topeka are both about 20 minutes away. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Travel Trailer.
