5 Parks near Higginsville, Missouri
Jun 2016 - $30.00
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

This wonderful campground is Big Rig friendly with easy access on and off I-70. The sites are big, level and spacious with easy turn into and turn out of sites. Many sites would fit our motorhome 90 foot requirement with plenty of breathing room. After a long and tiring day on the road you are greeted upon arrival with a friendly smile. The staff is extremely helpful at check-in and very knowlegable of the area. The campground sits in a country setting with lots of area for kids to roam and play. They are loaded with many amenities: beautiful salt water pool, large playground, horseshoes, volleyball, basketball, nice book exchange, nice large fenced in dog park, propane refueling and two large ponds for fishing and they are loaded with lots of fish. They have a nice big laundromat with very clean coin machines. The bath house is the cleanest I have seen!
They also have two large meeting rooms with kitchens which would accommodate large or small groups, reunions or rally's.
Two miles from the campground is a large Pilot gas station it is also at exit 49 and within 7 miles is a grocery store, many restaurants and Walmart.
The WiFi is exceptional and is always working. They do not have cable but I was able to get great satellite and cell phone reception is also great.
Don't miss this campground it far exceeded my expectations. While out exploring the area and seeing the sites I did come across another campground 10 miles down the road and decided to drive through. It was a major disappointment. The cost was nearly double what the Great Escape charges and the staff was very rude. Plus they did not offer all the amenities this campground offers. I am so glad I chose the Great Escape it is well worth it. - Chellie

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

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

Minimal leveling required at site. Utility setup really close to neighbor making your own site smaller/disrupted by utilities. Nice group camping area. Nice dog runs. Low water pressure from shower heads. Our site is for a motorhome towing car. To leave our site in toad, you have to back up passed 4 sites due to layout of sites. - Ms Winnie

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

Rate reflects RPI membership. GPS directs you on a dirt road or tells you to turn wrong. Follow directions on website. Roads inside are gravel. Some are in need of repair. Our site was right on one of the lakes. There's a lot of sites in different sections. We didn't see them all. Our section was populated by permanent residents. But there were some passing through as we were. Also some seasonal trailers. The sites are close but I did feel as though we had privacy. The site was gravel with grass and trees. No cable, but had antenna and could set up the satellite. Wi-Fi good. Verizon off and on. Utilities good. Great water pressure (we have a built in water pressure regulator). Not far from Kansas City or Independence. About a 10 minutes to a small grocery. 20 minutes minimum to a large one. Since it wasn't season, no activities other than fishing. Not sure we'd be back. - jcpjane
