Site was not level at all--even for a 17' travel trailer. Grounds were immaculate. Huge variety of site sizes and amenities. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We often stay at the various Jackson County Parks. Longview and Blue Springs are our favorites. The County does an excellent job caring for parks, providing security services, and general upkeep and maintenance. Most sites will need some leveling (gravel/pea stone). Roads just paved again. Although close to city, very secluded and quiet... do reserve early through the Jackson Co. Parks web site. Tent sites don't always offer much for level, but my rating is for an RV experience. Access to water requires leaving the park. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful county park that is spotless and very well kept. All facilities are in great repair and sites are comfortably separated and well defined. All the roads have been paved. Large grass areas. My biggest complaint is that hardly any of the FHU sites are level. There were several MHs with wheels off of the ground. The W/E sites are better but not by much. There is no WiFi, but a lot of tv channels. Would only stay again, could get a more level site. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful county park that is spotless and very well kept. All facilities are in great repair and sites are comfortably separated and well defined. All the roads have been paved in the last couple months so there are no issues with potholes. I would expect this park to be very busy in the prime season so make your reservations well in advance. (Jackson Co Parks website) This will be our go to place when visiting the area. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

The campground is nice and quiet. Lots of birds and wild animals at night. Can hear them in the woods. The tennants are rude, but the rangers are friendly. They got a nature trail. Very pretty views of the sky. We camped at Longview Lake Campground in a Tent.

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.
