Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 3 nights in a site for big rigs. If you plan to visit Kansas City there really is not any place closer than Walnut Grove RV Park. If you look at the convenience of staying close to the city then you can overlook the sites that are close together, and the fact that everything is gravel. The office gal was supper nice and friendly. Price is a little high but being that close to Kansas City you need to except. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a no frills RV Park in a residential neighborhood, not far from the big box stores on the freeway. We were in a pull through site right next to the entrance. It was a very basic 30amp gravel site, but it was the only site so far on a monthlong road trip where we didn't need a single leveling block. The sewer hookup had a small leak, so dumping wasn't fun, but we got it done without much mess. The manager was really helpful. She made sure she was out there when we drove up to help us into our site. We wouldn't stay there just to stay there, but we have relatives in Overland Park, and we will probably stay here again. For visiting that area, it's a convenient place to sleep. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

As previous reviews stated, this is a no frills campground. All utilities including the Wi-Fi functioned very well. Some of the gravel sites are very close but most seemed level. The personnel is exceptional providing friendly service and a good knowledge of Kansas City. The park, located in a residential area, is very quite. Reservations are recommended as this park was usually full during our 4 day stay. We will stay here again. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a no frills park with paved roads & gravel pads. We stayed here because it was close to our kids. This is the one park in the area. If planning on being in the area, make reservations because this park is always full. Would stay here again. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

Walnut Grove is a small no frills campgrounds nestled in a residential neighborhood 8 miles southwest of downtown KC (as the crow flies). There are approximately 53 sites just wide enough for RV/Fifth Wheel and vehicle. All are back-in except five pull through. There appears to be approximately one dozen full time residents and the co-owners live on, and next to, the property. All the back-in sites have shade in the morning or evening but pull through sites are full sun all day. No grass except for the dog walk which is at the north end of the property among several trees. This park is the only RV campgrounds within the Kansas City metro-plex and is a short 12 minute drive to KU Medical Center downtown or KU Med West. At the time of this writing, we are on our third stay here (extended this time) for medical procedures. The owner was extremely accommodating in finding us a long term spot for our medical needs. There is no pool but laundry and showers are available (photos provided). One female shower and two male showers. Water pressure high and water quality good. Entrance to park will sneak up on you if you are coming from the east off I-35. Looks like you are turning into a residential driveway at first. If you have a pull through site, you have to turn one drive way east of the main entrance. Call them as you come off I-35 and they will direct you in. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

KC area is renowned for their BBQ which is on nearly every corner. The WWI museum is downtown as is KU Medical Center. The KC Royals stadium is quite a drive from this facility and the KOA may be closer for the baseball game.

The location was great for my 50 year high school reunion activities. All of the staff were great to deal with. Laundry facility was very reasonably priced and machines worked well. I would recommend this park to anyone. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Small park in established neighborhood. Located with easy access to I-35. Close to Overland Park and Olathe. Stayed in 40' motor home with GMC Acadia tow. We had a back in site, very difficult to unhook tow as quite an incline downhill coming in. Site not level, but jacks leveled. Not a lot of rv parks in area, would stay again if a pull through was available. Quiet and peaceful at night. Hosts were friendly and helpful. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

The check-in person was very friendly and accommodating!! Good: Well laid out, and they had recycling which I always appreciate so it doesn't have to be hauled it back home! The site was not level, which was a bit frustrating. Wifi was pretty spotty. Bath area only had one shower, nice and tiled, but bath not really kept very clean. (Trash in barrel was there for a couple of days) However, location and nice folks made it worthwhile! If you have a pet, the dog walk area was a good size!!

Whoa $52.oo!!! $58.00 before Good Sam discount! Extremely pricey! Just a one night stay and it was fine. You can tell they are trying to make this "parking lot" a bit nicer than it was (according to previous reviews). Paved entrance and road with gravel sites. We had plenty of room with our 57' total truck and fiver. We parked next to our fifthwheel. New picnic table and fire ring. No grass. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Big rig friendly with level sites. Laundry and showers were good. Wi-fi required signing on several times a day but worked okay. No problem using our satellite. No dog park but grass field to walk dog. Site was wide and parked the truck beside camper. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very quiet! Nice dog run. Easy access in suburban setting. Just the basic amenities but those are fine. Many spaces occupied by long term campers so the number of spaces available is limited so you might want to reserve in advance. The owners and staff are so friendly and helpful. We will stay here in our future visits to the Kansas City area. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Urban area campground with lots of trees. Really nice treed pet area in the back of the park. Very few pull-throughs, but the back-in space was plenty wide enough to park our dolly and toad beside our coach. We were able to disconnect and reconnect right in front of our space without problems. Very nice owner and on-site staff. Store on-site and very easy access to and from the interstate. Very quiet, friendly folks, many of whom are permanent residents there. Park is clean! We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

It's been just over two years since we've stayed here, but the improvements since then are impressive. The previous messy permanents are gone. Remaining long term residents have cleaned up most of their unsightly belongings. Work to clean up fencing, stray tree branches, etc., is obvious. Most sites now have picnic tables! Rules are much more specific and logical, and seemingly well enforced. Mostly level gravel campsites, convenient and reliable utilities. We stay here because a family member lives close by, but now we are happier to be here because of the changes. We'll be back. We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.
