Very nice owners and staff. Have stayed at this park in the past and have noticed drastic improvements, especially regarding the grounds. Nicely kept and clean with 2 fishing ponds which can also be used with kayak, small boat, etc...(no motors). Clean restrooms and shower and laundry. There is a nice selection of books an games for use from the laundry room. The pool is open and refreshing salt water. Most sites are pull through with 50 Amp service, water and sewer. Free WiFi is available throughout the park. The upper sites have nice shade with tree coverage. There are 2 club houses for rent. The upper is large for big groups and events. The lower deck is good for RV Clubs, Group, etc... The park can accommodate large RV's as well as smaller back in sites for smaller travel trailers, popups, tents, etc. The sites are close to each other but the staff does well spacing RV's for added space unless they are full. Each site has picnic table and fire pit. Firewood can be purchased from the office at a very reasonable price. Ice is available at the office and soft drink machines are located at each level. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is right off I-70 and easy access. There is a truck stop across I-70 as well as a McDonalds and Casey's. There is a small Wal-Mart in Higginsville (about 5 Miles from the Park). Mainly fast food type of restaurants. Large shopping and eating is only about 20 minutes West on I-70. Enjoyed this stay and plan to come back.

We arrived the day after a tornado had passed by the park and they were cleaning up/cutting down damaged trees. According to the staff this was a highly unusual event, though they seemed to perform well by ensuring their visitors evacuated their RV's for the safety of the on site shelter. The sites are gravel, fairly level, wide and long enough for most RV's and tows. The area is in a very pretty, park like setting. A bit of road noise on sites closer to the freeway, not noticeable as you get further away or down in the lower area. All utilities work well, wifi was decent. Nice size very clean pool. Great fenced dog area and acres to walk dogs on leashes. Restrooms/showers clean but a bit spartan. Will stay here again. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Park has an upper & lower lot. Most sites have no shade and are very close to neighboring site. Site is loose gravel & dirt with F/H and small strip of dry grass. Has community room, pool & laundry room. The restroom/showers are dated but basically clean. Convenient for overnight stay when traveling i70. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was level, but our traveling companions had trouble getting level. The dog park had not been mowed but the adjoining field was mowed and nice for the dogs to run. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice little park. They had just opened up for the season so things were not as neat and tidy as they could be. Mostly mowing needed but the owner was out there taking care of it. The dog park area was very much in need of mowing but once that's done is will be nice. Two pretty ponds and nice area to walk the dogs. Like I said, they had just opened and are getting things up and running again. The pool looked good and they were expanding the deck area. Meeting room/shower/laundry building looked in very good condition so I feel it will be a very nice, relaxing spot. At first glance it didn't seem so but it really grew on us and was peaceful and pretty. Site was level hookups worked well. The only thing that gave us trouble was our GPS in locating this park. It had us turn left instead of right which took us down a dead end road next to the Interstate. We knew we were in the wrong spot when it said our destination was on the left. Don't think so, that's the Interstate! We were able to turn around though and find it in the opposite direction. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very clean and well kept. Easy access into and out of the park. This was a great place we found on the spur of the moment for our Labor Day getaway. I highly recommend this campground! The kids and grandkids loved the pool and pond. We will definitely be back next year several times. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Easy to find and easy access off the interstate. Very clean, laundry area was well organized, club house clean and tidy. Good size fishing ponds (catch & return only), small pool, dog area, easy pull thru sites. Not far from SpaceCraft Custom RV campers. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.
