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. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Remember to rely on a GPS or another device when getting here! We missed the turn down the road coming off the highway and had to turn around down the road near a farm! Overall, not a terrible experience though.

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. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

When exiting I-70 exit 49, coming from the west turn right after you exit the highway and take an immediate right onto the outer belt road. If coming from the east turn left and go over the bridge. It is the first right onto the outer belt road.

Nice, clean park. Easy access off interstate. Be careful of the GPS directions. It will erroneously tell you to turn left (east) on to Old Hwy 40. The campground is west, therefore you must turn right. Our site was a level, pull-through, full hookup site. The Wi-Fi worked well. Nice, friendly person at check in.

Good price. We would stay here again. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is not a fancy park, but excellent due to Staff, clean restrooms/showers, excellent laundry. Level gravel site and was a long pull thru. We do plan to stay at this campground whenever in the area. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Truck Camper.

Cost based on 30 day stay. This is a nice park, wide lots, lots of grass areas, quiet, level gravel pull through. This park would rate much better but their Wifi is horribly slow. Today's RVers need a fast Wifi, My 3G Wifi is 50 times faster than their Wifi. Why some parks do not get high speed is beyond me. It is sad because this could be such a nice place, Staff is not super friendly, they do not seem to follow their Office Open hours as you never know if they will be in or not. There is a drainage problem when they get rain and the road washes out nearly every time. The sites retain water for days on end. We will stay elsewhere when we come back through.

Although the grass was in dire need of mowing, I think that the inordinate amount of rain could be the cause - lots of flooding all around this area of MO.

The boathouse/laundry was the best I have ever experienced - individual shower rooms - clean- each with sink, toilet, shower stall, and lots of hooks. I was impressed. Laundry area was well cared for also.

Sites were small.

I don't stay at private campgrounds much, so I don't know if this is normal, but the water spigot was about 5" from the sewer dump. I don't think I would put water in my fresh tank with the sewer that close - you know that there had to have been "squirt" accidents over time.

An okay place to stay for a quick overnight. There are some permanent residents here. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pleasantly surprised to find this park. Easy on and off location from I70, quiet, great Wi-Fi. Beautiful new pool, 2 large fishing lakes. Clean and very nice eye appeal. Large sites with fenced dog park. And nice managers. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We rely on these reviews when choosing where to stay and can't understand why anyone would have a problem with this park. I can only assume that you can't please everyone. We stayed at this park several years ago and the new owners have made a lot of improvements since then. We pulled in last night, set up, took a walk around the park and then went down to the new pool. Wow! Beautiful pool area with a nice deck. They also have 2 fishing ponds and a nice sized dog run. Wi-Fi was fast and consistent. We had no problems with electric at all, and the sites are relatively level. Restroom/shower rooms were some of the cleanest I've ever seen, as was the laundry in the same building. They have put in some new, spacious sites in the back of the park (which is pretty quiet considering the park is close to I-70) and we have been told they are going to upgrade the older sites in front making them a lot wider (they are a little snug if you have multiple slides). The owners are really nice people who make sure you are comfortable. We will definitely be back. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Location is right off I-70 and Highway 13. They have gravel driveways and pads. There is a top older section and a newer low section. We stayed in the top section. We had full hookups and WiFi was excellent. This park contains acres that are mowed grass and weeds and provides a pastoral feeling. There is a very large pond at the back of the lower section. There is no cable TV, but several over-the-air channels are available. Road noise from I-70 was not noticeable inside the RV. No flies or mosquitoes.

Be extremely careful when locating this RV Park, which is located right off the interstate. Our GPS told us to turn left, when we really should have turned to the right. That, of course, is no fault of the establishment. This campground has very little shade and most of the sites are not level. There is a swimming pool and a dog park. A small pond exists near the dog park, however, it is not clear as to whether or not it is part of the park. The electric is unstable and keeps tripping our breaker. The showers need the curtains replaced. There are four washers and four dryers, though one of the dryers is out of order. If you need a place to park for the night, this will do in a pinch.

This is the first stop on our trip. Easy on & off the highway location. Very friendly staff. We requested an open site for our satellite. They have a section with no trees for that reason. Our site was perfectly level, as were all the sites I saw on my walk through the park. My husband was happy to get out and fish. They have two good sized stocked ponds and we had a great fresh fish dinner that night. The new pool is awesome with a beautiful deck off of it. If you have a dog they have a new fenced dog park which was great for our pooch. The showers were so neat & clean and had great water pressure and abundant hot water. There are newer washers/dryers in the laundry room, which was also very clean. The WiFi was lightning fast, which is unusual at parks in my experience. We really enjoyed our stop at this park and plan to stop here on our way back home and stay a few days. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great campground close to the highway easy on and off with long and level sites great satellite reception and pet friendly (they even have a dogie park. The bathrooms are very clean and showers are spacious. The new addition from the last time we were here is the pool with a large deck. Oh, and I almost forgot about the ponds with great fishing. This is a great park to spend the weekend or longer. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

GPS had us make a wrong turn (campground is on west side of Highway 13 (Exit 49 off I-70) so don't make that left turn towards Super 8 Motel). Glad we stopped. Despite being close to I-70 it was surprisingly quiet. Our site was level and hook-ups were perfectly situated. WI-FI reception was excellent. Campground staff was very friendly and helpful. The park is well maintained and the view of the ponds in the back is beautiful. The pool area is large with a beautiful composite wood deck area with a pergola. They just put in a large fenced dog park too. Even though the park is a little farther away from Kansas City than some other parks, we will definitely stay here again. It was worth the drive. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
