5 Parks near Higginsville, Missouri
Aug 2016 - $30.00
Park had long, level sites. Seems to need some more gravel or grooming in sites and some roads - looks a little worn. Nice ponds you can fish in. Nice lady checking us in. Easy to get off and on I-70. - padre

An overnight trip outside of Kansas City, MO was fine with us! The campground is nice, fairly clean with some amenities that our camping crew found useful! For starters, the showers were nice! I especially liked how it was nice to have your own little room, making it feel like you weren't actually in a public shower room. The pool and volleyball seemed nice, but we pulled in rather late, so really didn't use either one of them.
Wish we could have had more time to explore the campground, especially with the two ponds on site and the clubhouse. But again, fairly nice park and one that is great for an overnight trip - right off the highway and little to no traffic has been heard! Overall, I probably wouldn't stay here for an entire week, but nice enough for overnight. - crosscountrycollegian

Easy access from I-70. Level pull-throughs. Good power. Good water pressure. Wi-Fi has a good signal. Friendly and helpful staff, even when we arrived late. - Treborw

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

What a great little park. The road noise is not too bad because the site is behind a building. The concrete pads are level. The owner is extremely nice. The cleanest shower & bath I think I've ever seen and a nice laundry. Country store in front with 200 plus cheeses, Amish foods, snacks, etc. Excellent hook up "house" by each site. I would definitely stay again. Class A, 35', towing a car. - DBKings

This is a park nestled in the trees with two lakes within the boundaries. The sites are close to primitive in design with electrical only. You will not get satellite service due to the tree coverage. This is a good park especially for rv's under 40' in length. Watch the tree branches driving in as they do not trim them on a regular basis. Most of the folks that use this park are campers and build a fire everyday. Be prepared for smoke throughout the day and night. - ranchoddellago

I stayed one night camping in a tent. My biggest complaint was the noise from the highway and the train line. If you camp with a trailer or RV you probably won't hear the noise as much as camping in a tent. The park ranger was very friendly and helpful.
Lots of green, lush Oak and Elm trees lined the meandering paths and roads. The small cottages were quaint and inviting.
The road was very easy to navigate since it was just a simple loop through the campground. The sites looked like grass, a small gravel pad surrounded by trees. - Tcaphou

We enjoyed our stay here and really have no complaints. They only have electrical hookups, but there is a dump station on your way out and water faucets located here and there throughout the park to fill your tanks. Each site has a picnic table, a post to hang a lantern, and a fire pit. Restroom and shower areas were well maintained and park itself was kept up. There are 5 or 6 designated "family campsites" if you need more space. A lot of lake access within the park for fishing and walking trails. Nice quiet park. We would definitely camp there again. - Dena2013

Upon arriving we noted that this was a "Holiday" level KOA and they had been awarded the 'Founders Achievement Award' for 2016. We thought this was going to be a good experience: how wrong we were!
We requested a site with no trees. When we checked in, we were escorted to our site which was a small forest. We requested another site but were told that's all there is and they would be glad to refund our money. It was late in the afternoon, I was ill and it was about to start raining. Where were we supposed to go?
The site was so out of level that it took us 90 minutes and lots of blocking to get our coach level. The utilities were so far apart that we couldn't hook up the sewer - even with an extension hose. Since there was a utility pole with a very large electrical panel next to us we couldn't extend out canopy. The guy wire for the power pole was only inches from our steps so we had to side step around it.
The wi-fi was useless. Most times we couldn't find it, if found we had a difficult time connecting, if connected it was painfully slow and we we're often knocked off.
Finally, the highway noise is very loud: even when inside the closed coach with the A/C running. - Rd yacht

Definitely a "have/have not" campground. We were in the have not section with no trees at all, but the pull-thrus closer to the bathrooms and pool had beautiful huge trees to shade them.
They do have two wonderful pet runs and a huge grassy area for group tent camping (but no trees).
Insist on being near the bathrooms so you get a shaded spot. - Scldg

This is a very clean, well organized park. We arrived without a reservation after leaving an unacceptable campground 40 miles away. We were treated nicely here and escorted to a lovely tent site. The pool was clean and delightful and the restrooms impeccable. - llamalady

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

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
