We stayed here for two nights. Our pull thru site #96 was huge! Long enough for our coach and tow car and extra parking for our visitors. They offer food delivery to the campsite but we did not use that feature. Very quiet Campground and dog friendly! We camped at Basswood Resort in a Motorhome.

There are several areas in this park. The ones close to the entrance seem to be hilly with lots of trees. The next are all back-ins that are very tight and look like full timers. The next is way in the back with pull-thrus. These are bigger and quite nice. The rest rooms were spotless. The site we had was great, fully paved and woods on our door side. This site is normally a road that they use as a site sometimes. We would stay again. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Basswood calls itself a resort, but that term is questionable. I think of a resort not only having activities, but also resort type sites. The sites here are so close you can barely put out an awning without touching your neighbor. Most are gravel, with little gravel. Some are concrete, but those are also very narrow. The site I was in #96, was just the end of a road. The water did not work, so I had to attach to site #97. The park did loan me a hose so I could attach the water. On a positive, the restrooms were very clean and large. The laundry was also very nice. There are 4 small ponds (called lakes), but the water does not move. You can fish, but I did not. All in all this is ok for one night, but I would find something nicer for a longer stay. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Motorhome.

We were a late arrival, but the staff were very understanding and had everything arranged ahead. We were a little surprised at the hill going into the campground. The campground was well organized, super clean and our site was a pull thru. There was a great pet area and lots of room to walk one's dog. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a busy park near Kansas City and all it has to offer. The staff are friendly and efficient. There is a pizza restaurant on site. The pool is small but clean and there is an adjoining playground if you have little ones. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Motorhome.

Great Park convenient to Kansas City and to a lot of national trails sites. We visited the National frontier Trails Museum and Harry S Truman NHS in Independence, Lewis and Clark Historic Park, WWI Museum and Kansas City Royals in Kansas City, the Pony Express Museum and Jesse James House in St Jospeh and Jesse James Bank Museum in Liberty.

We arrived just before 7 PM, were quickly checked in and escorted to our site. The site was level but VERY narrow. After setting up on the very hot June evening we thought we'd to go to the pool for a swim but the pool closes at 7 PM! Not good when it's still light and hot until 9 PM or later. We did make it to the pool midday Saturday and it was very crowded. It is a decent sized pool, but if the resort is full, and with the limited hours, the pool is not big enough to accommodate the crowds. Free Wi-Fi is advertised, but, IF you can get connected you cannot get on the Internet and there is very spotty cellular signal available. Fishing requires a permit from the office and $5 per pole per day "restocking fee". I think they are due to be restocked as I did not see many people catching anything. The staff was mostly friendly. There were a couple of the ladies in the office/store that were a little stoic, but most were friendly. We ordered pizza from the pizza parlor in the store, requested delivery and were told it would be 30 minutes. An hour later we had still not received our pizza so my son rode his bike down to check on it. He was told that I needed to come down to take care of a credit card issue. It turns out that I only needed to sign the slip. I asked why I couldn't have signed that when it was delivered and was told that it was for pickup. So, my pizza sat down there in a box on top of the oven for a half hour because of this error. The person that took my order apologized as she remembered speaking with me, but offered no discount for the mistake. The pizza was a little dried out. A phone call could have prevented the mishap since they had my number and were able to charge to my site. The final thing I will say is this resort is just north of the Kansas City Airport and planes flew low over the resort every few minutes breaking up the peace and quiet we desired. We made the most of it, but will not likely try this place again. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The great aspect of the resort was the fishing for my 5 year old grandson, he had a great time and caught several fish including a nice size catfish. The downside was the space between sites, the width of a picnic table (lengthwise) and not even close to being able to have any size of a canopy for shade. Resort was obviously built well before RV "slides" so even with our 16 ft teardrop trailer, was pretty cramped.... We camped at Basswood Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Folks rate this very high on Google. I guess folks have forgotten what it means to camp. This place is great if you don't mind not having any space and living with noisy neighbors. All other parks were reserved during memorial day. My wife and I reserved a tent site with water and electricity. On the first entry we got lost and ended up on a dead end road with side by side cabins. We had to back our SUV out since there's no place to turn. Our location was at the far back of the park on a dirt road that washed out during the rain. Due to the incline, we had to enter the site at full speed. We barely stopped in time to miss the neighbors car. These sites are small. We have a 10 x 20 tent and barely fit the site. The RV campsites have about the width of a picnic table between. There is not room for any other cars. My guess is that the folks that love this place have not been to any of the state parks. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Tent.

Chose to stay there in late October of 2016 because it was out in the country away from Kansas City. Little did we know it was directly under the KC international airport approach. There are literally planes every few minutes right over head at low altitudes. You can easily read the lettering on them. The spot we stayed on was barely long enough for our truck and fifth wheel. They had lots of extra spots next to ours but wouldn't let us park our truck in the unused places. It is a pretty park, no doubt but if you sleep with your windows open you may find it difficult with planes going over all the time. For the money, not the best choice. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Thank you for leaving us a review and for camping with us. We are glad that you enjoyed exploring the area and are truly sorry for the noise disturbance. It is unfortunate that we do have a minimal amount of air traffic that flies overhead but do hope that you understand that this is beyond our control. We hope that you will give us another opportunity to impress and wish you all the best.

First and foremost, the mgt. team. Super. Professional, fast and very helpful. We, upon packing up to leave today, had an issue with our electric and since I'm the farthest thing from an electrician, asked the office for a recommendation. They gave it, the fellas came and conquered. Perfect. Park is large and is well equipped and clean. We would stay again in a heartbeat. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A one night stay while traveling. This was a very nice park with great service by the office staff. The park is about five miles from the interstate but just a couple of back country roads with very little traffic. The peace and quiet were well worth the drive. The store is well stocked with supplies and food/drink. We had a nice, level pull thru site. Bathroom/showers were very nice and clean. We would definitely stay here again!!

Very nice park! Although it was just my wife and I and our 2 Maltipoos, it seems very family friendly based on the kids we encountered at the fenced in dog area. We'll likely stay here again when we're in the area. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Motorhome.

This is our yearly visit from California to Basswood to visit family stationed at Fort Leavenworth. I have reviewed this park the previous years that we visited and this time the visit was by far the best. This is the first time we were in the upper level (site 201) behind the pool and it was the best. The site is cement with a patio and some grass. The site was pretty level with full hookups. The wifi was spotty at best and the signal was determined if anyone was in site 100. On the pool side it was shaded in the morning but full sun in the afternoon. What made this site so good was the lack of traffic ( both vehicle and pedestrian) which made it very quiet (except overhead planes headed for KCI). The bathrooms and showers were spotless. We will definitely request this upper area if we are staying again. We camped at Basswood Resort in a Motorhome.
