The park manager is wonderful. Good knowledge and friendly. The park is excellent access for the historical exploration of Independence Mo. I love Truman and so does Independence. Call for instructions to access for big rigs. The park is very well kept but the pull through sites, though long and hookups accessible are in sunshine and not level. The trains start at 5am and go until the evening. We were OK with that. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

No fenced dog park but lake is 9 Miles away. Our Labrador swam!!! Don't miss A Little BBQ restaurant. Owner will give directions. Excellent bakery, deli, breakfast and sandwich shop Dave's Deli on Truman. Such wonderful history and highly recommend the Conestoga Wagon Ride, Pioneer Trails.

Very Basic Park but Clean and reasonably priced. Some others have mentioned the train tracks not too far away. The trains are far and few and are really not that bad but ,,,,, if you are a princess and the pea type, don’t stay here. You will here a train once in awhile. Flat concrete pads, Plenty of room to park Electric strong at 124V Water pressure steady at 65Lb Sewer, Water and Electric all well located with short runs Afternoon shade but not so much that it interfered with the Satellite Verizon LTE at 5 bars, was able to use as hot spot just fine Dish worked just fine Fairly tight quarters with a little grass between each spot. Large play fields on the property. I would stay here again in a heart beat. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Spent a week in Kansas City and could not possibly see it all. Suggest you start with a trolley tour that leaves from the Grand Central Station in downtown KC.

Trains trains trains!! ALL DAY ALL NIGHT! The only reason I rated this park as a 1 is because it is a quarter mile from a major rail line. The horns blow all day and all night. Stayed here five days and did not sleep. The park itself is nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. Juat a BAD location. Too bad. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed 3 nights visiting local attractions. Very convenient for that purpose. Older very basic park. Didn't use any of their facilities other than parking pad which was concrete and pretty level but a bit short for a 32 ft. trailer and tow vehicle. Near train track but not a real bother since didn't seem to be heavily traveled. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would stay again. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We visited the Bingham Waggoner Estate which was excellent. Very good representation of time period with most of the original furnishings in the house. Staff was very knowledgeable.

Overall Rating:

The rating 4 translates to Poor which is a bit harsh, but it is below Average (5) so take the 4 rating as "Below Average." The pull-through site we used was OK but no longer level due to settling. We had a choice between stay back and be a good bit off side-to-side or pull forward and be off front to back. We pulled forward and put one block under one rear wheel and it was OK. We couldn't adjust it much do to not being able to back up with the towed vehicle. The staff was friendly and helpful on the phone and in the office. The bathrooms and showers were dirty and unfortunately were probably beyond true cleaning at this point. The building is very old. In real estate terms, that building would be a tear-down. However, the location is very close to the Truman house and presidential museum - a short drive or 1/2 hour walk if so inclined, and a shorter walk to the Oregon Trail museum. Only three pull-through sites so check availability. Most sites are back-in. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Big rig friendly. We stayed 4 nights to enjoy Both KC and Independence sights. You can walk to Independence town square with restaurants, as well local museums and historic sights. No enclosed dog park or kid amenities but there is a huge grass area that's really more fun. There are a couple pull throughs but most sites are long level backing ins off a super wide road making for easy in and out. Do follow their website directions as some roads from the highway are tight, and they lead you the easiest way. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Train runs all night blowing wistle. Showers were cheap construction and dirty with no privacy. Some kind of state housing next door led to lots of homeless type visiters passing through and snooping around ( felt unsafe to a degree). 3 or 4 pull through spaces and the rest are back in. Rough area but if you want to stay close to downtown Independence this is close. Very hard to access from major hiways and hard to find entrance. Plus you have to travel down narrow streets with low branches and wires to get there. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Decent place to park overnight while visiting Truman museum. Nothing fancy, big rig friendly, 50 amp full hookups. Near the train tracks but with windows closed, we didn't even notice. Guess after traveling the plains states, we're getting used to it. Follow directions on website otherwise you'll be driving through the church parking lot like we had to do to get turned around. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is very convenient to Truman House, some museums, historical home, all in walking distance. Lots of sidewalks to walk our dog. They have a dog park, but it is tiny, and the grass was not cut. Easy to back in. There was standing water at our camp site, but we did have a big rain storm prior to us arriving. Be SURE to follow the website driving instructions. GPS will send you a more direct route, but the roads are very tiny and narrow. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Small park, mature trees, concrete, level sites, full hookups with good water pressure and electrical service. Our site was spacious and an easy back-in. Many long termers here, but quiet and nice. Train noise was not a problem for us. No cable. Wifi available at office and laundry room but not at Site 6 (no OTA television at site 6 either). Laundry had 3 washers and 3 dryers, most are large and only cost $1. We did not use the bathrooms/showers. Easy walk to the Truman home & downtown Independence; short drive to the Truman Library and the Morman Temple. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Kansas City is clean, walkable and affordable to tour. FREE, ultra-modern, ultra-clean, street railcar from FREE parking in River Market District (stops in the Power & Light and the Crossroads Arts Districts) down to Union Station (Science Museum, impressive WWI War Memorial). A skywalk connects Union Station to the Crown Center (Hallmark Museum, LegoLand, Crayola City and other kid-pleasers).

This place is what you need for an overnight stop. We got in late and left early. Not sure how great it would be for an extended stay. Friendly owners. They waited for us when we were delayed by a storm and didn't arrive until an hour after they were supposed to close. Sites are essentially along the side of a road.
