The lake is secluded in the heart of the city yet there is no traffic noise. Fishing area was nonexistent. Easy to access the interstates to get around the metro area. I would stay there again. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed 14 days. paved roads but gravel sites. Stayed on #67, back in site with full hookups. Our site was not real level until we backed up some more. Water tasted funny so we purchased bottled water to drink. No wifi or cable, however we picked up 60 channels on antenna tv. Site had picnic table and a fire ring. Gated entrance with a code. Camp hosts were not on duty very often so you had to ring a bell to get any help. Ice and wood sold onsite. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park, family oriented and Ranger security on site. Nice interior roads, but some mud in heavy rain. Hiking, fishing and biking available. We would stay there again. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

To avoid confusion read my directions below.. When you come off the Interstate and come to the first stop lights look across the street and you will see a two lane road to the left and a single lane road in front of you . Take the single lane and in a 1/4 mile you will see "campground" sign.(If you take the two lane road you will go to a round about and that will bring you back to where you began)

We stayed for a weekend. It was one of our first times to take our trailer out so we learned not to park so close to the electric pole that the slides don't open completely. Be sure to back in past the point where the leveling jacks won't hit the curb stops. And we learned how to level our trailer using ALL of our blocks. Our site was not very level side to side, but we were able to eventually get it all set.

The park is close to the lake but no water views. The sites are fairly spacious and include a fire ring which we enjoyed each evening. Our friends had the site right next to us so it was nice to hang out in the evenings at the fire. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our campsite was not level but was easily corrected using blocks.

Our site had cigarette butts strewn about everywhere and there was a firepit full of partially burned trash.

The bathrooms and showers were not clean and there were webs with spiders and egg sacs everywhere.

The actual grounds of the campground were nice. There is so much potential if it were clean. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sites were very spacious, with no trees which made for good OTA (over the air) channels or satellite reception. Beach was on the other side of the lake which is about a 20 minute drive and it closes early! We arrived on a Sunday afternoon so the campground was not very busy. Check in staff was very friendly. Firewood and ice are available at check in. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed overnight because our first choice, a private park, was full up for a rally. SO glad we found this park instead. It is a county park, but you'd never know it. we had a pull through with full hook up, including sewer at our site. campsites arranged in loops around huge open fields. The lake is beautiful, but we were enroute to another destination, so did not get to explore local area. Over air TV good, clear line of site for satellite. did not use bath or laundry. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

you can make reservations online by registering with Jackson County (strange, but it works great) and that lets you pick a specific available site for your travel date and select your amenities.

but CALL the office to get directions to the park. As other reviewers have noted, GPS units, and Google maps do not correctly recognize some recent traffic calming devices. unless you enjoy endless roundabouts in a local residential neighborhood, of course.

Very nice quiet park not a long way from the Interstate. The campground itself is a ways from the lake facilities so you have to drive a ways to get there. It is a bit difficult to find and though I'd been here before it seemed like I must have gotten off the track before we got to the campground. There were only a few other sites occupied while we were there but lots of birds to watch and deer that came through in the evening. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
