Do NOT stay here. Hard to see entrance. You will pass it and have to drive to town to u-turn. The park "resort" is a scene out of Deliverance. The one-way steep rutty "road" has low hanging branches hitting our new rig. There are piles of rusted out metal, dumped cars, trailers, everywhere. Sites are no where near level. No WiFi. You can get TV here. Loud music after 10:00. No welcome package. Cash ONLY. Almost nonexistent water pressure. We would have left this horrible place but it was getting too late. Out of the 45+ RV parks we've stayed at, this was by far the worst. The name needs to change to GONE UNDER. - cmiller

We had a site on a hill, but was not able to level my trailer. Very old and dated park. Looked great on internet but doesn't live up to the hype. Very poorly maintained. Stayed here one night and would not return. - SammyToo

This park is much further off the highway than we thought from the directions: " three right turns". There is a very steep hill to enter the park, and we were brushing against untrimmed bushes beside a lake. Park was unmowed and was full of ruts and wash-outs. Some seasonal or year around, but no one else around. Was stuck in the site until I unhooked the car. Not a good experience. Still cannot believe I climbed that hill full of ruts after the rain last night. A serious, never again. - imperial

In additional to the nightly fee there was an $8.50 reservation fee since we booked on line!
This is a beautiful park, lots of large hardwood trees fill the park. We didn't even try to get Direct TV reception! But could get some TV over the antenna.
Only problem we had was with the configuration of our site. It was raised up from the normal forest floor in order to be somewhat level to the roadway. But that buildup was rather narrow for our 5th wheel. So when making reservation beware of that since there is somewhat of a description of the sites on the website. Once we got the rig centered on the site it made for tricky navigation from the truck to the steps of the RV. Don't let that warning keep you from this park, just fore warned is fore armed!
Dump site at entrance to the campground. No threaded tap for hooking up hose to use our Saniflush.
The park is very close to the Watkins Woolen Mill and Home. Beautiful state historic site. The campground is on the land of the former farm. Very interesting and a must see. Only $4.00 admission per person! - Rick & Karen

Beautiful campground. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. I had trouble backing into #83 at night so the host put me in a more accessible site. Very nice shaded sites with beautiful trees. Some road and train noise but not bad for being close to KC. Clean shower rooms with hot, hot water with no timer. Some things to keep in mind: 1) Site no. 80 -93 are challenging for longer units - all back in with a drop off along the road. The sites on the downhill side looked to be easier (see campground map). 2) Beware of the 10:00p gate closing. MSP will not give you the gate code over the phone; we found that out en-route and were pushing it to make in time. - Zabanya

This is a beautiful park with large sites. Many sites have electric, only a few have 50A. There is water available at spigots in the park but there is no water at sites. The roads are paved and wide. Most sites are gravel, but the 50A sites are paved. The gate house is often unattended but the hosts will either be at their well marked site or at the Check Office which is just past it. Campground gate is locked after 10pm but there is a gate code for getting in. We were able to get satellite at our site but it would be difficult from many others especially when the trees fully leaf out. The park even has has free public wifi. We were there during the week and there were virtually no other people in the park. The campground should be accessed from the park's southern entrance off of Highway 92. Access from the north is winding and there is a low overpass that could cause problems. - docj

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting friends. Park is easy to find and easy access. We checked in after hours. All info was left for us, easy to find. Park was open and clean, wifi worked and we got some tv channels just using a small antenna we carry. - SeeinUSA

We stayed for an overnight on the road. We didn't see any staff. We signed in at the late arrival desk, got our receipt by email and left early. I have no complaints. It was a typical to better KOA and there are not a lot of places open in December. - Judy Birchland

The manager and her helper were very nice. The place is immaculate. The shower in the men's restroom was spotless and the experience was great. We couldn't get antenna reception but did have wifi and telephone
reception. - vaw123889

We spent 5 weeks at this park in Sept-Oct 2016. We paid a monthly rate of $395 + electric. All the sites are pull-through and relatively level, but they are pretty close together. There is a picnic table at each site. Half of the park sites have full-hookups. The other half is just electric and water and they bring a honey-wagon around three days a week and empty your tanks for you. The bathrooms and showers were satisfactory, but not wonderful. They had 5-6 shower stalls with private dressing areas. The laundry room had 8 washers ($1.50) and dryers ($.25/8 min). They seemed to work fine. The pool was closed while we were here, but it looked nice. Pretty quiet although there is a background road noise from the highway that is right there. - mmhopper

We have been coming to this park since 1991. This park is in the run down mode. We are in the long-term section. Some of the sites need to be cleaned up. A lot of trash. I notice there is no enforcement of picking up dog poo. Their roads with in the park that are paved need a lot of repair. Our site was large. We could park our tow vehicle next to our motor home with room to spare. Electricity was strong. Didn't try their WiFi we have our own. - Joceil
Sep 2015 - $31.00
Wonderful, very helpful and pleasant personnel. Easy access to site. Fairly level site.
The not so good:
Mediocre facilities. NOT a full hookup site for $31.00.
Directly next to I-70 with a decibel level somewhere in the MILLIONS!
(Okay, well the noise level felt like that!) - A Pseudonym

Had a great experience. The Owner stopped by to be assured we were satisfied w/our spot and to assure us a picnic table would be forthcoming. She aimed to please. We had the largest spot in the park and while the park is older it was clean & neat. We Loved the country store which also serves as the park office. - Kristie Roberts
Jul 2016 - $34.00
Great owners and store up front with lots of goodies. Our site was very long but too narrow - no room to sit outside. Utilities fine but wifi was as usual, poor. Over the air TV. Some long-term sites with all the "stuff" that goes with them. - padre
May 2016 - $18.00
Stayed a month for work purposes. The rate is a monthly rate including electric @18.00 per day. Very nice staff and store. Didn't use the bathrooms but the laundry room was nice. Very quiet CG. Just right for me. I would have rated Country Gardens higher but the WiFi was very spotty which caused some frustration when trying to work. - rskrbina

This place is a dump! We could hardly get in the very small sites. We have a small MH with a toad, and didn't think we were going to be able to get out. Units here looked to be temporary, long term and were not pleasant to look at. Believe them to be transient workers or something worse. The price is outrageous for the quality, and all descriptions were certainly misleading and very much in error. If we hadn't been so tired, we would've left! - stonybirch

This park is accessible to I-35, but access to sites is poor for larger RVs. It is an older RV park and is pretty run down. Immediate neighbors are a construction yard and Lowe's store. Streets are narrow and in poor condition. We felt that the rates were misleading in the campground guide as last year was listed as $24. We would not return in the future. - RV Camper1

Nice park. Very convenient for staying on the north side of Kansas City, MO. Friendly and courteous office staff. Only drawback is noise from I-35. - cooksonqt
Nov 2016 - $26.00
Pro: walking distance to almost everything, strong wifi, friendly staff. Sites are close together but not on top of each other. Con: most sites are back ins surrounded by trees, nice enough but not satellite friendly and no cable tv. Train noise consistently. - lovinretirement

We stayed for one week in Nov 2016. Our site was easy to back into and quite level. The sewer hookups are all the way at the back of the site so our hoses from the second bathroom barely reached. The nearby trains were the only drawback, but we got used to the noise and during the night we kept the fans running so didn't hear them very much. The guy at the front office was extremely nice and helpful.
Follow the directions on their site to get here, not a GPS. The directions bring you through downtown, but they recommend the widest roads and easiest to maneuver. You can only turn into the park entrance easily if coming from the east. I would stay here again. - mmhopper

The pull through we stayed in was so level we did not have to unhitch. The pull through sites are close together, but the back-in sites have more room. The staff was very helpful. The park is near railroad tracks as others have mentioned, although we did not hear them inside with the rooftop fan running. The bathrooms and showers are clean but dated. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. - barrettjl

Picturesque campground with a nice country feel. Our site was not level but corrected with levelers. We would return. - sp123

We camped here in a 45' motor home towing a Jeep. The interior roads are narrow, but there are no trees along the road, so doable. Because this is an older campground there are not a lot of sights for our size rig, thus I would suggest making a reservation as opposed to just showing up if you are long. The campground setting is beautiful rolling hills. There is tons to do in the campground park which is huge and is very convenient to all the Independence and KC attractions. - barbielab

Absolutely well kept. Unbelievable for a county park. Very delightful stay here. Proximity to KC is a plus. Staff very friendly. Wifi was a challenge but manageable. - Maltaman

We have stayed at this park many times. The sites are always clean and very well maintained. They improved the WiFi this year and it works great. Very easy to get in and out. We bought season passes for the kids so they keep busy while Mom Dad/Grandpa Grandma relax. The pool is always clean and the lifeguards are attentive. - John Bristow
Oct 2016 - $40.00
Very nice pull through and back in full service 50 amp concrete sites. Has a pool, laundry and store. Excellent wifi, but cable is pretty "fuzzy". Great cell service. Next to amusement park and they offer discounts. There is no noise problems from the park. Highly recommend and will stay here again. - teepee51

We stayed 4 nights to see some attractions in the area. The park is a short drive from I-435 (Exit 54: Parvin Rd) along a 4 lane paved road that was in good condition. In order to access the park, you have to go through the amusement park's toll booth and pay the parking fee. The fee is refunded at check in if you have the receipt. Sounds pretty complicated. During our stay the amusement park was only open on the weekend so we didn't have to pay the parking fee as we arrived during the week. The park was built on a slope. There was an effort to tier the sites so generally the parking pads were level but some of the entrances and exits from the parking pad could be steep. The interior roads and sites are paved with concrete parking pads. The roads were wide and the turns were easily negotiated by larger RV's. The sites were a mixture of pull through's (in the center) and back ins (along the outer edges). The P/T sites were long enough to stay connected to toads but angle of the entrances could pose a challenge. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30 AMP), & sewer. The connections were generally at the rear of the parking pad. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow. Sites had sufficient room for opening slides. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. There was a nice outside table but no fire pit. There were no obstructions to the sky so satellite reception was good. Cable channel lineup showed 28 channels. The park provided WiFi was adequate. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn't try the NET10 phone so don't know about cell phone reception. There was no designated fenced pet area but there was a sufficient distance along the park's roads (but they were up and down a hill) and the side walk along the main road to exercise a dog. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste throughout the park. - bsb814

A vast park with long term and overnight sites. Back in's and pull thru's. My site was long enough to fit my 40' Class A and my 18' trailer still attached. The site was not real level, but I was able to level my rig enough for my needs. Sites are shaded, FHU, 30/50A services. No cable. OTA signals from Kansas available though. My site was close to one of the lakes so that I could see the local geese wander from lake to grass each morning and evening. The pool is about the size of two large olympic-sized pools!!! It has a gradual slope into the pool mimicking a beach, but it is pool surface, not sand. The pool surround needs some upkeep performed, so you are not permitted on the sides to be able to dice into the 9 foot deep end of the pool. There is a fee of $2.00/person/day for use of the pool from 11AM to 7PM daily. There is a mini-golf course that is also fee-based for $5.00/pair of players. The mini-golf course needs some upkeep and maintenance also, but it was still fun to play! The condition of the park is a state of upkeep and in need of maintenance. The location is convenient to Kansas City amenities and the Royals stadium. I would stay here again if in the area.
Sayid is the name of the host. He is very friendly but is overwhelmed with campground management. He escorts you to your camp site. - kihei7

Don't attempt to access this park in a Class A motorhome or a big rig. It's quite a distance from the highway with low hanging branches. Campground is difficult to get into and to maneuver around. It's dusty. Sites are not level. I wouldn't classify this as a resort. - Sunshine Camper
May 2015 - $13.00
The lakeside spots are a bit tight but very nice and most have fresh gravel, level pads. Like may RPI Parks this has seen better days. But the owner is working hard to upgrade and spruce up for the season, but it has a ways to go. Biggest challenge is that it virtually no Verizon cell or Wi-Fi service. So, you are kind of out of touch. Not necessarily bad, depending on your needs. - MarkD
