We stayed here overnight on our way across country. All the reviews gave this place high marks. I am not impressed. The pull through sites are very tight and we almost couldn't extend our slides. There is no place to sit outside. We had one of the pull through sites. It is in a residential area. The owner asked that we call them so that they could meet us at the street and guide us to our site. We were so close to the other rig next to us that we could look in their window. I do not think I will stay here again. The only advantage is that it is in town and close to Kansas City. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is about our 4th time to stay here. I gave it an 8 because of the great location. Very close in, essentially in the middle of the Shawnee Mission area. A lot more convenient than some of the outlying parks which are 10 miles out of town. If you get a back-in site they are plenty wide for slides, awning, and parking of a vehicle. If you get one of the pull-through overnight sites they are barely wide enough to get your RV in. Essentially not wide enough to even set lawn chairs out. Thus, ask for one of the back-in sites. Sites are gravel and quite level. We just backed in and unhooked. WiFi worked well. We were even able to stream some of our Dish DVR recordings from our receiver at home with very few freezing or lockups. While we did not use the laundry or restrooms, I checked them out and they were quite adequate. No problems with electricity water, or sewer. We were only there for a couple of days and did not set the satellite up but there were plenty of local stations and since it was right in KC, the reception was great. The park is just a mile off of I-35 in the middle of a residential area. Thus, access to other parts of the KC area is quite easy but there is no noise given the residential surroundings. As previously, we will stay here again when in the KC area. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park is small, but adequate and close to our choice of eatery. The employee who served us was very accommodating, polite and cheerful. There are both shaded and and open sites. Although the park is older, we would gladly stay again as the facilities and park are just fine for a night or two. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Woodyard bbq, just a few miles down Merriam Ln has the best smoked/bbq meat we've EVER eaten. The St. Louis ribs, burnt end sandwich and smoked turkey can't be beat!

The lady at check in was very friendly and informative. The WiFi is free and worked well. Sites are a bit close together. The location is nice for exploring the Kansas City area. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We went to see the Library Parking Garage on 10th Street in Kansas City during our stay. The outside of the parking garage is painted to look like oversized literary classics - very nice.

We ate at Danny Edwards Boulevard BBQ and had a very good experience there.

Prices going up, but improvements are slow to get accomplished. Every site was occupied, so revenue is probably pretty good, but about all we saw improved from a year ago was the fence in the east parking lot was freshly painted, although a quite hideous color. The young lady employee who checked us in was very pleasant and helpful. Sites are small, gravel, many not level. Site numbers are easy to see. Loop road is paved, but has several poor sections because of some sort of utility work. Electrical is about 110 volts and reliable. Registration building has been repainted, but also a weird color. Water is from city of Merriam. Sewer connections are maintained properly. Laundry facility is adequate. Restrooms and showers are reasonably clean, but need work. Trash dumpster is conveniently located. No picnic tables or fire rings (although they sell fire wood!). Trees are big, but not nearly as many as there were because tornados and storms have knocked some down. Pricey for what you get, but not much competition. Please read other reviews for more information if I haven't addressed all you need. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

The people that run the park were very nice. The park is in a residential area; tight, extremely close together, long term residents, no grass or "yard" area. It was just OK. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

The new management group seems to be "getting it." New little store is a nice feature, big annoying speed bumps have been removed, discount for military/veteran or Good Sam is very welcomed. Previous dog issue seems to have been resolved (likely need to judge that better when it is warmer). Staff is more accommodating and friendlier than before. Good to see them walking about. Would like to see permanent sites better managed, too much stuff outside, looks trailer-trashy. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Our pull-through site was very narrow, we had only one slide out, not enough room for living room slide. The park was overpriced in our opinion. The sites were gravel. Might stay there again if the other parks in the area were full. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

The owner is very sweet. There are a lot of monthly campers but they are very restricted about personalizing their lot. There is NO grass in the camping spaces, only gravel. We lived there for 9 months. They promised to forward our mail but that never happened. We would not stay there again. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

While pull through sites were concrete they were not level and really leaned. Leveling blocks were needed. Spot 407 had no room on either side. Truthfully, there was 2 inches between my slide out and the one parked on my side below me. Thankfully on the other side was a Class C with no slide outs. Although we've been in some tights ones before, they were nothing like this. Wi-Fi worked sometimes and sometimes it didn't. No cable here. Only over the air channels and only 6 at that. You are very limited as to where to stay in Kansas City, but I would look hard to find somewhere else. The staff was friendly and they did forward a piece of mail to me so I am thankful to them for that. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Only discounts given are for military (which we don't qualify for). Good: owners were accommodating with us, the laundry was good and reasonably priced, we liked the location (close but not too close to all the city stuff - still had a small town feel nearby). Bad: very aggressive speed bump right near entrance, early morning noisy yard work some days, and some owners don't pick up after their dogs in the dog area in the back. Worst: a lot of loud trains at night. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

The new park management does not pay as much attention to tenant rules compliance as did the previous group. Dogs were often a nuisance, improper vehicle parking was not corrected, and the trash dumpster overflowed routinely. One tenant had about a dozen dogs out every day in make-shift cages and they barked constantly which got other dogs in the area riled up also! This place is too small to not manage these things better. Previously, it was common to see management walking about dealing with issues. This time there was nobody outside. All the staff stayed in the office. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was an OK park in that the people were friendly and it was easy to find. It just was not that close to Kansas City and there was little shade. Also there were no tables provided and the spaces were very close together. Some spaces are really unlevel, which can be challenging. About half the spaces were long term residences. The internet was not very good and my wireless card ended up being faster. I do not get these parks charging for more people like in hotels. My mother is in a wheelchair so she is not going to us any extra services. Otherwise it was not a bad place at all to spend a couple of nights. I probably would not be a long term residence.

Pros- close to Kansas City, good Wi-Fi, close to some shopping, friendly staff/owners, quiet. Cons- tight spaces for parking (5 feet away from the neighbor) and maneuvering for a 36 foot 5ver, kind of pricey for what you get. We would stay here again.

This is not an RV resort. It is a place to park your camper while you are visiting the Kansas City area. It has electric, water, and sewer connections, and the staff/owners guide you in to your site. They also have free internet that puts out a really strong signal and is fairly fast. They do not have cable access, but I have a $14 hi-definition antennae that pulls in over 25 channels quite clearly. That is inside an all aluminum camper, which tends to hamper reception. I suspect that if I put the antennae outside, or on the roof, that I would get even more channels. Everyone (owners/staff/guests) has been extremely nice to both me and my dog. Both of the owners have stopped us during a walk to give my dog a treat, which I thought was really nice of them. They also seem to like my pup, because they go out of their way to come over and pet and play with him. They have a very nice lounge/tornado shelter, that has TV, a book lending library, and more. It reminded me of a very cozy family room in an extremely nice house. The park is in the heart of the suburbs of Kansas City, in the small, charming city of Merriam. I do not know the history of Merriam, but I suspect that it is long and interesting. I highly recommend this place. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
