We camped here as an overnite stay passing thru on I-70. It was OK for that purpose other than being expensive. Access was a little challenge as its off the interstate a few miles and not well marked. Half of the park is dedicated to permanent residents. All gravel roads and sites, semi level. Staff was good and its a bit of a drive to a grocery store/restaurants located in the downtown area. Overall not bad for a quick stopover other than the cost. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

Stayed here one night. Easy access off the interstate. Very clean and staff helpful. Cable good, Wi-Fi - fine if you don't need to do a download such as upgrade I tunes. The site was level. Negatives were: Train and highway noise. The trains go about every 6 minutes and some are very loud! I am not a light sleeper, but was awakened several times by loud whistles. I will not stay here again because of the train noise and the price. This is geared to small children, but too expensive for late October when it is too cold for swimming, etc. and we have no children traveling with us. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Travel Trailer.

Had a wonderful stay, but it wasn't long enough. Was clean and well kept. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

This is definitely a park for smaller rigs and families with children. Sites were long enough for our 40' rig, but barely room for tow. Even with a pull-through site, we will need to back out; not enough turning radius due to trees, other campers, and narrow roadway. Ended our evening with the park's sewer system backing up out of our site's drains. The park responded quickly to fix it and clean up. Still, this park is very over-priced if you don't get involved in the activities. We won't stay here again. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

We were disappointed in this campground. Was not well maintained. Spots are narrow and neighbors very close. Must unhook toad to get in with a big rig. Limited space for the tow vehicle. Would not stay here again. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

Stayed here Saturday night of Memorial Weekend. Very crowded with lots of families with children. Lots of entertainment for the families. Lot was very long, lots of lush grass, and the fenced dog run was shaded and our dog loved it. Never used the restrooms, but grocery looked like it was well stocked. It was a bit expensive for one night, but we felt very safe and enjoyed our short time there. We would definitely stay here again on our way through. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Fifth Wheel.

Fine for overnight. Sites narrow, older facility. Able to accommodate our 43 ft coach. Has a fenced pet area. Could use a second dumpster. The one was overflowing by Sunday evening. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

OVERPRICED! Nice little setting, could use a smile or two from the staff. Never talked to owner, but looks like they might care. Will look into the off season to maybe come back. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Fifth Wheel.

This is not a KOA any longer. It changed over to a Jelly Stone Park in July 10. It is also a Good Sam. Nice location and this being our first stay in a camp cabin it was nice. Nice clean showers and rest rooms. Not a lot going on but it was still winter. They rent canoes and have other things to do for those with children. Easy to find off the interstate. Far enough away not to hear the noise. Would stay here again if I pass through. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Campground Cabin.

Staff pleasant and helpful. Restroom and showers have a musty/old smell to them and needs updated. They have three showers, but only one of the three was workable when we were there. I am sure they are fixed by now. The campground was full and had a lot of activity. Grounds were clean, no trash seen. Pool and play area great. Liked the pet area, but would have loved it if there would have been water avalible. Felt price was extremely high for what is offered. Cable is extra (which we did not have). Noticed May 2011 stay was $35 and our July stay was $55 without cable. Little bit of a price hike!! We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Fifth Wheel.

Does the phrase "Reach out and touch someone" bring back any memories? This park epitomizes that! While the park wasn't full, we wound up so close to an Airstream that we could have stuck our hands out the window and handed them a cup of coffee. This is an older park that is going through a transition from KOA to Jellystone. Very accommodating office staff when making reservations however getting directions while lost (make sure you turn North after you exit the toll road!) was a challenge. Not a bad place to stop if just for overnight but crowded none the less. Not sure we'll stay here again. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park. Owners are very friendly and helpful. It is located in Lawrence. Very clean, well kept grounds. We stayed an extra night because it was so pleasant. We would definitely stay again. Access for a big rig was easy and sites were more spacious than most. Recent tree trimming provided shade without any danger of damaging a rig.

This CG is now a Jellystone Park franchise, but other than a Yogi Bear statue it looks like a KOA. It is fine for an overnight stay as it is quite close to I-70 (the closest off ramp to the CG is temporarily closed, the toll booth at exit 204 can give you specific directions to the Jellystone/KOA). The staff are very friendly and they honored our KOA discount. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Travel Trailer.

The power was out on arrival after a huge rainstorm and we couldn't get a receipt, but otherwise the office was operational. Pleasant staff. We were escorted to our pull-through, FHU, 30/20 site. We were permitted to use our generator until the power was back on, which happened in 30-60 minutes. Rather impressive was the lots of staff working busily at removing downed branches and other effects of the storm despite our evening arrival. The bathroom and showers were nice and clean. Store stocked good items including ice cream. The WiFi didn’t come back up. We also didn’t try the pool or playground since another storm was incoming. We didn’t use the cable TV since it wasn’t free. There was some road noise from alongside interstate location. It was good for our overnight. We would return. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

While we were there, the campground was still a KOA. However, the owner mentioned that the campground was in the process of changing over to a Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park as part of its strategy to be a destination campground. We met our daughter and granddaughter for a long weekend and to attend an event in Bonner Springs, KS. They stayed in a cottage while we stayed close by in our trailer. Our reservations were in order; check-in went smoothly and we were escorted to our site. The campground had several activities for kids that our granddaughter enjoyed. The jumping pillow was a big hit along with the swimming pool, bird watching, and hay ride. The common grounds around the campground were pleasant, well kept and nicely landscaped. The owner, hosts, and staff were helpful and friendly. Our site was reasonably level. The width of the interior drives that led into the sites and the sites themselves were a bit tight. During our stay, there was a water outage that lasted a couple of hours. We did notice some low water pressure. We had to rely on our Smart Phone more than Wi-Fi for Internet connectivity. We heard trains often yet they were not a problem for us. Based on some previous reviews, we were prepared for much more invasive train noise than we experienced. The campground seemed to fill to capacity during our stay. As more campers arrived, the bathrooms could have used a little more attention and cleaning throughout the day. We would stay at this campground again. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Travel Trailer.
