The lake itself is large, and the campground was located towards the southern end. We kept following the signs and eventually found it. It was well kept and quiet. It bordered a marshy area of the lake. There were many unoccupied sites the night we were there, so we were able to find a long level pull through. Rate was $21 less a $2 senior discount, for an electric only site. A nice, quiet place to stay in the Kansas City area. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

We chose this campground for it's location and proximity to things we cared about -- and I think that might be the only reason to choose it. Oh, it's a nice enough place to sleep for the night, clean and quiet. A small playground for the kids, and fire grills for your meals. But there is just nothing actually to attract me to the place. Park your tent or camper and leave to go do fun things. That said, there are plenty of fun things to do, in that Longview Lake is not far away. Beach, marina, golfing, etc. But the campsite is NOT waterfront. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Tent.

First we had to find this campground! Directions were awful on their web site. When we finally found the little brown signs with a tent on them they directed us through a softball field area complete with lots of little kids. Asked someone who assured us we were on the right track and we eventually did find it. The campground host was not real pleasant but got us checked in. We had an electric only site and enjoyed being in that section of the park, trees and grass and widely spaced sites. Lots of deer and birds. Lovely setting. Site was not at all level but black topped. Restrooms were OK and it was very quiet. Phones worked great, no WI-FI. We did find a different entrance that was much easier to use. The attendant noted that they sometimes close that entrance, hence the round about way. We would probably stay here again. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Paid the electric only rate for a 50 amp paved pull-through site. The 50 amp service is on the backside of the electric pedestal and very low with no breaker. Potable water is available at the dump station and is easy to get in and out of from either direction. There are some widely spaced faucets in the campground loops as well. Tough place to rate, both loops are on a side hill and most of the sites are not very level. We asked for a level site or the best he could do. We had site 25 and used all of our blocks. Front to back was fairly level, but we had about 3" to 4" of drop to our curb side. But once setup we had a big beautiful site. The sites near the corners of the loop seemed the most level. So site wise, you need to know the layout here. TV, Verizon cell and broadband were all great. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our second stay at this park on our way to and from our summer jobs. It never ceases to amaze me that such such a lovely spot exists so close to the urban sprawl of Kansas City. The grounds are immaculate and well taken care of. Many of the sites are shaded. It took a bit of leveling as our site #63 was on a slight hill, but we managed. Once in place, the water and sewer worked well. The voltage on both the 30 and 50 amp circuits was a bit on the low side, but not destructively so. I did use my booster/transformer for peace of mind, however. Verizon 4G broadband was very strong and the selection of over the air broadcast TV was quite good. The camp hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. We will surely be back. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

As with most state and county parks we've stayed in, this one provides full services and spacious, crushed-stone sites ...and in this case, a gated entrance for extra security. Campground hosts are delightful and a wealth of local information. Close proximity to Kansas City and Independence. Would definitely plan on staying here again.

This is the newest and cleanest of the three campgrounds run by Jackson County. We stayed for two nights and the campground was only about half full so noise and traffic were not a factor. We initially set up at site 18 and I had to do some leveling due to a downhill slope but it wasn't a big issue. When we woke up the next morning, we had no power and the nice attendant determined something happened to our 30a feed at the post so he moved us to site 21 (a bit more room since it was on an outside curve). The rest of our stay was uneventful. The campground is clean and they have a newer playground inside the campground; there is another nicer playground about half a mile down the road too. We did hear some noise from boaters off the nearby lake but overall, we had a nice experience. The wife and I would take the family there again. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is fine park with about 20% shady spots. It is quiet and not cramped. Easy to get to if you follow the instructions exactly as given. If you get creative and come from the south, you have one opportunity to go west on SW 3rd Rd and then south on View High Rd. Follow the little sign that leads you to the "mansion." It is an obscure single lane road dedicated to the mansion (and the campground) but it doesn't say so. If in doubt, DO NOT USE my suggested short cut. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is not near the lake, it's quite a drive to the lake. The lake on the map looks much larger than it is, and the fee to "use" the lake is $24 per person per day, or $48 for the season. This is not included in the price of the campground. The hosts were nice, and the area is clean but shade is minimal and we were there in 100+ heat in July. We saw NO children or pets outside most likely due to the heat, although there were a lot of deer in the evenings. I would rate this as a 5 but the "surprise fee" to use the lake was not clearly stated anywhere on signs or in brochures. The Ranger however was there to send you to the marina store to purchase the permit/pass, and the pass only applies to this lake. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, sites are not really level for big rigs. Kid friendly and all that. It is rather hard to find. We will stay here again. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground, this county has several. If you are not local, when you make reservations the only address is the county office and NOT the campground address. Make sure you know what park you are staying in or you will not find the park. People were nice and sites were large. We would stay here again. It's only 20 minutes to Kansas City.

Long and winding road into the campground. Not much around, it took me 20 minutes to get to Lee's Summit. Our site was level and shaded. The lake is so far away you forget there is one. We had a lovely time here, but I think we will try Fleming Lake on our next visit. Bathrooms were ok, but showers needed cleaning. The Camphosts were very friendly.

This campground was usually quiet and never packed full, even on a holiday weekend. Many tent and w/e sites are available and usually one can just drive in to get one of those sites. However, if you need a 50amp and sewer, there are only about 15 sites available. They are reservable and not often available for a long tern stay. Knowing someone in the area to make a reservation for you is helpful. Lots to see and do in the Kansas City area and access to I-470/435 is quick and easy. Many restaurants, laundry, stores, etc., in Lee's Summit. This is a wonderful find for us and we will stay again. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Not sure about all of the trees that other reviewers are talking about. We stayed in the full hookup loop and there was no shade! It is a nice quiet park, but if you want shade this is not the park for you!! We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.
