We had one of four pull-through spots. The spots were tightly packed in and had a steep incline just beyond the pad itself. The car had to be unhooked and parked in front of the rv. The whole campground seemed an odd hodgepodge of sites, some more generous, some facing in weird directions, some clearly in long term storage. There was lots of grass which could use a good mowing. There are 2 sets of train tracks closeby, but the train whistles weren't as loud as some we've encountered. The location is close to downtown and an easy drive to KC. Be sure to follow the directions on the campground website(the truck route) instead of the GPS. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

The main downside to this campground is the trains that run every 20-30 minutes all day and all night. The tracks are right next to the campground. Each train blows its whistle 15-20 times as it crosses every street nearby. Wifi is spotty. Site #5 only gets it if you sit in the drivers seat and put your laptop on the dash. Other than that, it is just fine. Laundry only has 3 washers and 3 dryers but they are large and only cost $1. We would probably not stay here again, just because of the trains. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Many long termers here, but quiet and nice. We had a one of four pull-thru's. Air tv was very good, sign said they recently removed cable. Internet was spotty. Baths and showers clean, but dated. Good enough for my use and $29. Will stay here again, for sure! We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

A real hodge podge of slots. Restrooms and showers needed a good cleaning and to be updated. Space was adequate, but no more. Best part of the place was its location - walking distance to the Truman Library , home and other interesting historical sites. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Interior roads are asphalt. Sites have level concrete pads big enough to hold the RV and their plastic picnic table. Site spacing is good, with plenty of room for slideouts. Restrooms and laundry ($1/load) are clean. Owners are nice and friendly. They have a recycle container for metal paper and plastic (no glass). Very close to downtown Independence, the Frontier Trails Museum (just a short walk), and about 30 min from Kansas City. The only downside is the occasional train crossing the many grade-crossings nearby. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is a small park near the sights in Independence. Most all of the sights are back in and on concrete, they all look level as our was. There is great hook ups here. Even though you have to drive the city streets to get here it is easy by following the directions on their web site. We received several TV stations over the air as there is no cable available. Satellite also worked well as our site had a clear view but the low number sites on the south end will probably have tree interference. If you are coming for the historical sites this is a great park to work from. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Truck Camper.

This is a great little park, especially for an overnight stay. You have to navigate city streets to get to the park, but we had no difficulties with a 38' motorhome pulling a Jeep. Staying at this park also allows you to bypass a lot of Kansas City Interstate traffic. We had one of the 4 pull thru sites which are on concrete slabs. Our site (#2) was level and large enough for our rig. It was easy to get into and out of the park. There is no cable TV, but we could pick up lots of TV stations with our antenna. Wi-Fi was slow. We would stay here again. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

There is nothing special about this campground. What it does have going for it is location. I believe that this is only park within downtown Independence.

The interior roads are on asphalt and all sites are on cement. All sites are back-ins except for 4 sites. All sites have FHU with the utility boxes containing 15, 30 and 50 amps. The voltage was strong - hovering around 122 volts. The electrical box and water spigot are close to each other and are located in the appropriate location. The sewer is located closer to the back of the site. The sites appear to be fairly level and can accommodate large rigs.

All sites have a picnic table and there is a communal fire pit near the office. There is a laundry room with (3) washers costing $1 and (3) dryers costing $1per load. The laundry room was very clean. There is also a bathroom with (1) private shower and (2) shower heads in another area per gender. Both showers are separated by a curtain. The bathroom was fairly clean but not very appealing.

WiFi was spotty, some days it was strong other days it was weak. Verizon air card and cell phone reception was good. There is some railroad noise.

Follow the directions on the web site - not your GPS. The web site directs you to the campground via truck routes. Many of the local streets are narrow.

We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. We would come back to this campground. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Convenient location to Independence. Most sites are back-in, single wide road, easy entry and exit. No frills. Picnic table needs repair or replacing. There is a train nearby but it did not disturb us. Good base to visit the area.

Would stay there again. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Too many sights to see in just two days. We enjoyed walking in the Historic Independence Square, Courthouse, and having lunch at Clinton's soda fountain on the square.

We visited the Harry S. Truman home, presidential library & museum, the Vaile Mansion, Bingham-Waggoner Estate, the National Frontier Trails Museum, 1859 Jail and Marshal's home, and the 1827 Log Courthouse.

Be sure you follow their directions which is the truck route or you can be in serious trouble. Mostly long term stays. Have 4 pull thru but not for big rigs. Will not go through the hassle staying there again. better to drive from another park to see Independence. Go to the soda shop and buy the sundae it is wonderful.

Green, quiet except for an occasional train and makes access to Kansas City easy. Downside was the restrooms, fairly clean but showers left a lot to be desired, like privacy, clean drains, mold smell and the general deterioration of old age. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stop over for 2 nights. Older campground that needs some TLC. Restrooms and laundry was in need of a cleaning. No cable but plenty of local channels. Most sites had concrete slabs that are close together. Lot of permanent trailers that are an eyesore. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

The area is depressing! The pull thrus were not available and we had a site that had shared hookups. Not convenient and very close to next site! We were told the wifi worked but it never did! I would not stay here again. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is very convenient to visiting any of the President Truman area sights such as the museum-library and family home, plus a number of other interesting places in traditional Independence. The electric and water hookups were good. The back-in site we had was good concrete with a nice picnic table. Restrooms were older but clean, as was the laundry area (wash $1.00/dry $1.00). Free Wifi worked fairly well. The train noise was very noticeable but otherwise the campground was quiet. Follow the website directions as GPS will have you making impossible turns for any RV.
