16 Parks near Kansas City, Missouri

This park is amazing! When you first see it, you feel like you're pulling into a very well kept, friendly, beautifully landscaped neighborhood. If the cabins are as nice inside as they are outside, it would be tempting to just stay here. We had a pull-through with plenty of room for 35' Class C + tow dolly and car. This is more like a gated community than your average RV Park. Well worth the stay and a full amusement park right next door for the kids (or the kid in you). Immaculate! - EllynG

There's a great pool, a laundry and game room. The staff was most helpful, the noise from the road and the rides wasn't bad (previous reviews warned about that) and the landscaping really helped screen one site from another. - Jlcamper

I can understand why this park gets high reviews but we would probably never stay here again. The pros are that the park is well laid out and although you are VERY close to your neighbor, the way the lots are laid out it feels like you have a lot more room with trees for privacy. Check in was easy. The cons are plenty. Signage is terrible. The entrance is dangerous for RVs (although thanks to reviews here, we knew what to expect and planned very well for this). There were fireworks every night that made it sound like WWIII in our very well-equipped Class A where we rarely hear sounds (I wish they had told us about this - from 10 pm - 10:20 it was hellacious). It is right near a busy road with trucks that have their engine breaks on that made tons of noise. The worst part about this park is the residents, who were by far the worst we've come across in all our travels. There were at least 6 loose dogs and the park did nothing to curb it (we almost saw a dog get hit by an unexpecting RV). The neighbors two lots down from us lit off fireworks that exploded over our rig (park officials did something about it, thankfully). A ton of people parked in the street which seemed odd to us considering this was an RV park - made it difficult to navigate around. I think the holiday weekend had a lot to do with our experience but it was enough to never want to come back. The layout does not make up for all the negatives of this park. - Kamnel

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. - SusanRon

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! - Sir_Charles395

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. - Tonymesaaz

This place is a dump! We could hardly get in the very small sites. We have a small MH with a toad, and didn't think we were going to be able to get out. Units here looked to be temporary, long term and were not pleasant to look at. Believe them to be transient workers or something worse. The price is outrageous for the quality, and all descriptions were certainly misleading and very much in error. If we hadn't been so tired, we would've left! - stonybirch

This park is accessible to I-35, but access to sites is poor for larger RVs. It is an older RV park and is pretty run down. Immediate neighbors are a construction yard and Lowe's store. Streets are narrow and in poor condition. We felt that the rates were misleading in the campground guide as last year was listed as $24. We would not return in the future. - RV Camper1

Nice park. Very convenient for staying on the north side of Kansas City, MO. Friendly and courteous office staff. Only drawback is noise from I-35. - cooksonqt

After staying here for two nights, I would have to say that Autumn Falls is more a mobile home park than a campground or RV park. There are about 40 sites, most of which are used by mobile homes, but a few vacant spaces spread through out the park are used to park RV's. There are no amenities at all; you get a concrete pad between two mobile homes with utilities to park your rig. So if that's all you need, this isn't a bad place to stay. Our TT is 30 AMP but the power box was only 50 AMP so we needed an adaptor. It's only 7 blocks from the KC Royals and Saints stadiums, so it's perfect for sports enthusiasts. But, it's also right along Highway 40, which is very busy from 7AM until dark, then it quiets down a bit. However, I must say that the owner keeps the park in amazing condition. It was very clean, the grass was cut, and there was no junk lying around. He definitely went to the head of the customer service class; I wish more in his position would be just like him. - Love To Travel 2

The manager is the nicest ever of any park in the world! When I pulled in he guided me to the RV site. OK, not unusual, however, he then proceed to do all the hookups--water, electric, and sewer! I can't begin to state the many things that he did to make sure that our stay was pleasurable. He even drove me to a local car rental agency in his own vehicle. The site was level, paved, and all the hookups worked great. Also, the location is perfect, near Royals Stadium, I-70, and close to local restaurants and shopping. - chiro

Stayed for 10 nights at Passport America rate. Mobile home park with RV spaces. Basic park with no amenities. 50amp service, water, and sewer all worked well. What made this park excellent was the great service by the owner/manager and the cleanliness of the park. Will stay here again if in the area. Parked second space from the highway and was not bothered by the road noise. - Pastor Bob

Laundry, bathrooms, and located next to a very large lake. No WiFi; cell phone service is available. Lots are pretty level for a state park. Each one has a curb in the back, which works excellent for your back jacks. Great for a overnight stop, 10 minutes off highway 70. Take second exit off 470 if coming from 70, its much more manageable. - SprintingAcrossAmerica

This is a good overnight stop. There are no amenities although they do have one washer and one dryer. It is being well maintained.
This park is easy to get to if you know where you are going. It is actually on Campground Road in Lee's Summit and the sign is so tiny you could easily miss the turn. - Esse

We recommend this campground to either visit the Kansas City area or as a good place for a one night stop as you drive through the area. There is a good assortment of sites with various hook up options. Sites are well spaced, gravel, but many required leveling. Camp hosts very friendly and offered suggestions on places to visit. Grounds kept clean and well maintained. Campground has security gate to reduce non-campers from driving through the area. - linnemj

Nice park. Full hook-ups and price was great! Was safe and relaxing. Hosts where very nice and helpful. Was not hard to find. Many restaurants were within a few miles. Will stay again. - bradensouthcarolina

What a gem! You are almost in the city, but feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Beautiful campground with level gravel sites that are specious and lots of grass. Full hookups. My wife keeps saying it looks like it is in the middle of a golf course! Camp host is readily available and helpful. We were going to just spend one night, but after setting up in our site we decided to stay an extra day and relax. Before pressing on. - Spizzer

Super friendly camp hosts! Many of the sites are pull through, and we had a lake view from ours (28, 30 also has a nice view). Huge sites, lots of room between them, a nice playground for the kids and tons of grassy area to run and play. - A_GF_Mom

Wonderful, very helpful and pleasant personnel. Easy access to site. Fairly level site.
The not so good:
Mediocre facilities. NOT a full hookup site for $31.00.
Directly next to I-70 with a decibel level somewhere in the MILLIONS!
(Okay, well the noise level felt like that!) - A Pseudonym

We were very disappointed with this park, called and asked for a pull thru with full hookups, the person on the phone confirmed they had one available. When we arrived we were told that full hookups were for their monthly customers. We were given a spot that was so tight, we had to drive back around the park and come in from a different way. Our RV was parked across from a subdivision on one side and highway on the back side, it was noisy all night. For pet owners there is a pet restriction listed on the front door of the office. No dog over 75lbs and there are several breeds not allowed. I am not sure how Good Sam can list this campground with the high scores they have for them and would suggest that someone from Good Sam visit this campground. - thejones357

Park is old, but clean. One side is full hookups, other side water/electric only. Restrooms clean/showers more than adequate. Almost didn't stay here due to bad reviews, but glad we did. Stayed 2 nights. - spdrlgs65

This is a Clay County park on Smithville Lake, a large lake north of KSC. To find the park on your GPS, if you put in NE 160th Street, Smithville, MO, it will take you into the park. The park information does not reflect a physical address. Reservations are made through the county website that is hard to navigate. The next or accept button is well below the screen, so it requires considerable scrolling. The price is economical without frills. It is popular for boating and fishing.
The easiest way into the park is from I-435, exit 26, then west on 92. Your next turn, about 9 miles away, is well marked. I would not recommend exit 17 because the road the GPS will bring you through has 3 narrow bridges, several sharp curves and multiple hills you can't see over until you meet oncoming traffic at 45 MPH. When you arrive, you are about 12 miles from stores.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were in Loop G where the lake is close. This is a 30amp, no water area; however, the electrician I spoke with says plans to up-grade the area to 50amp for next season are in discussion. We were here on a weekend and the power was around 104.
The lake is very large but quite shallow with a mud bottom that is easily stirred up by the boat traffic. The shoreline is sandy about 20' before you are into the mud bottom. None of this seemed to detour visitors.
There are 2 shower areas in the park. Each loop has a restroom building. Loop C has 50amp and water, but the area is not near the water and many large trees may block a roof mounted satellite signal. - Workamper04

Electric & Sewer good, Water @ 60psi. Wi-Fi none. AT&T Cell Phone Good. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card Good. No Cable. My Site was acceptable. Could back in far enough that the back of the trailer extended over the back concrete barrier giving me enough room to park truck on site. Site Size was wide enough and level. Sites are far apart from each other. Great grass area behind the site to walk the dog. Roads are asphalt and were being repaved as I was leaving. DirecTV Satellite was easy to access. Payment was with credit card. - TXBobcat

We only did a one night stop at this campground, but we could easily spend more time there. The campground is on Smithville Lake, just north of Kansas City. Its a big county run campground with over 400 campsites. Around half of the sites have 30 or 50 amp electric and a good number of the 30 amp sites have water hookups too. I think all but a couple of sites are back-in. There are no sites with sewer connections, but there is a large dump station near the entrance to the campground. We saw a nice playground and the grass was freshly mowed. The restrooms were clean. Many of the campsites are near the lake, although I think all the lakefront sites are electric only (no water hookups). The campground is less than 10 miles west of I-35, but County Road E, which you travel the last 3 or 4 miles is rather narrow and a bit rough in spots. Our Verizon signal was a good 4G and it should be pretty easy to get a satellite signal there. - nazpaz

The park is basically a parking lot. It is surrounded by trees, but units are jammed in very close together and many of them seemed permanent. It is about a mile off I-35. It wasn't pretty, but it served its purpose. All sites are back-in. We have a 24' class C and I wouldn't have wanted to drive anything bigger into this place. - suerover

We were in a "premium" pull thru, which was the only available spot when I called 2 weeks. We were in town for a wedding and this is the only close rv park. Really not a "rv park" as we know them but very nice people. Lots of long term folks here. There are many trains rumbling through during the night. Easy to get to from I-35. - ontheroadmama

The park is basic, with very few amenities. The park is very small, and the camping sites are close together. Although, we did navigate our site OK with a 34 foot fifth wheel. You have to walk a ways to find any grass for your pets. The office lady who checked us in and led us to our site was very friendly and helpful. Overall, we would probably not stay at this park again, although it was convenient to the Kansas City area attractions. - Krissy r

Campground clean, host friendly and helpful. Some pull through sites we torn up due to construction issues. Pull through sites were small especially if you had extra vehicles. $5. charge per night for extra vehicle. - oldelzydog

This park has so much potential but the city management has kept it on the back burner so long, it is loosing ground. They don't do maintenance until "things" are broken. Promises of additional 50A sites are never fulfilled. The 11 50A sites available all have a drainage ditch for a patio yard. The park will not allow converters to be used so 50A units are not allowed to park on 30A sites.
The sites are gravel and not well maintained although most are pretty level.
We camped at this park for 11 years so we have seen the lack of preventive maintenance and improvements first hand.
To reserve a specific site, you must drive to the CG and pay in advance in full. No refunds. No credit cards. No reservations on a website. They are still in the 90s........1890s. - D Curf
