This was a very comfortable overnight stop for us. The lady at check in was friendly and welcoming. She escorted us to our site, which was conveniently located next to the dogpark. Our pull-thru site was long and level. The hookups were convenient. Water pressure was nice. Sites are gravel with grass in between. It rained overnight but there were only a few places around our site that puddled. We didn't use any of the amenities except the dog park. It was nice and big but the grass and weeds inside needed to be trimmed. We would stop here again if in the area. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

Stayed at this campground because of the kid amenities offered (we had two grandkids staying with us for the week). All activities are hosted by a camp advisor. Such activities as slip and slide, pool, water games (balloons and sponges) with a large sling shot launcher, visit by a fire truck, art activities to make tie dye shirts and colorful spinning art pictures, panning for gems and artifacts at a mining water trough and movie night! Some of the activities are fee-based but most are free.

Our campsite was a longpull-through with full hookups, 30/50 amp service, gravel and grass patio with a fire pit and picnic table. Easy registration, friendly office staff, escorted to our camp site. Sites were long enough to keep my 40' Class A connected to my 18' trailer with room to park my vehicle at the end of the camp site. Plenty of room between camp sites with hookup's centered in the site.

Mote expensive than I would prefer, but the kid amenities were the attraction for me. That way, I didn't have to entertain my grandies 24/7!! The park is secure and staff are kid friendly. My grandies made friends easy as they participated in activities.

I would stay only if I had my grandkids staying with me. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Easy access to Lawrence, home of the University of Kansas. As in any college/university town, there are lots of shopping and restaurants available. Don't forget to take a day trip to Fort Leavenworth. It is worth the trip! Non-military can access the fort to visit the museum and other historical sites. When checking into security, you need a valid driver's license, proof of insurance on your vehicle and the registration for that vehicle.

Loved the family setting and location was very nice. They had a lot of activities for her family. Would definitely go there again if I'm visiting. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Travel Trailer.

We went to the Steamboat Museum in downtown Kansas City. It was an awesome place to visit and I highly recommend if you're in the area. Also there is a big flea market place where the museum is located.

There were not many good choices for campgrounds in this area. Thanks to RV Park Reviews to help us decide. We have stayed at Jellystone Parks in other places so we expected a certain standard.

The campground is somewhat difficult to find because of the Toll gates from the Interstate, but we found it.

It's a little worn and not polished,is the best way to describe it. Roads are gravel as well as camp sites. We had a Premium Pull Thru located on a corner and was very nice.

About half of the park are long term residents and we met a few and enjoyed them.

There are quite a few locals that come in and camp on the weekends so the camp does become full.

We don't use the showers or cable so I have no comment there. The WiFi was good most of the time. In spite of all, we would stay here again. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Fifth Wheel.

Gravel pull through site just long enough to accomodate 35' coach and toad. They offer 5 or 6 different site options, 30/50/water/ electric/ sewer each with different rates. Main road was a little muddy with the rain. Grass separation between sites, two picnic tables and two fire pits. Park was arranged so that each rv alternated directions so that doors face each other. Good wifi and electric. There was a pool of water around the water spigot. Big dog park with unique concrete pad at entrance. So many dog parks have a muddy entrance and this concrete pad idea was great. Big leafy trees but we had a site that was not under a tree. Some train noise. Clean bathrooms. Roomy shower stall but dressing area at end was tiny. Used end of shower stall for dressing. Rate was for a water/electric site only with Good Sam discount. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park. The staff was friendly and helpful and we were escorted to our site. The roads are a combination of blacktop and gravel but well maintained. The sites are gravel but level. We had plenty of room for our slides and it was long enough that we didn't have to unhook for our overnight stay. The dog park was convenient and clean. We camped at Jellystone Park at Kansas City in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
