6 Parks near Turney, Missouri

Do NOT stay here. Hard to see entrance. You will pass it and have to drive to town to u-turn. The park "resort" is a scene out of Deliverance. The one-way steep rutty "road" has low hanging branches hitting our new rig. There are piles of rusted out metal, dumped cars, trailers, everywhere. Sites are no where near level. No WiFi. You can get TV here. Loud music after 10:00. No welcome package. Cash ONLY. Almost nonexistent water pressure. We would have left this horrible place but it was getting too late. Out of the 45+ RV parks we've stayed at, this was by far the worst. The name needs to change to GONE UNDER. - cmiller

We had a site on a hill, but was not able to level my trailer. Very old and dated park. Looked great on internet but doesn't live up to the hype. Very poorly maintained. Stayed here one night and would not return. - SammyToo

This park is much further off the highway than we thought from the directions: " three right turns". There is a very steep hill to enter the park, and we were brushing against untrimmed bushes beside a lake. Park was unmowed and was full of ruts and wash-outs. Some seasonal or year around, but no one else around. Was stuck in the site until I unhooked the car. Not a good experience. Still cannot believe I climbed that hill full of ruts after the rain last night. A serious, never again. - imperial

Wallace State Park is a lovely, tranquil place, a really sweet discovery. There is a small lake with swimming. Two of the campgrounds have electric, mostly 30 amp, with 50amp available in two sites (by reservation); the basic sites seem more suitable for tents, but OK for smaller rigs. If you have never stayed here before & especially if you have a big rig, I would recommend calling the park before making a reservation online. Some of the sites are easy pull-thru & very level. Some are gravel, some paved. The back-ins tended to be very private & attractive (nestled in the trees), but also many were not level. One electric site had a pretty steep drop-off with a lot of overhanging trees that we would not have attempted. (Ok if you're small, but no way with a behemoth motorhome!) - RockyMountainMama

The nicest state park campground I have ever stayed in. Beautiful, fairly level, spacious sites, some with tree cover, others in the open. Good electric, but no water at site, and no sewer, though a very nice dump station was available. Even had good wifi at site.
Modern, clean bath house. Everything was well kept, nice hiking trails and a swimming lake. Nice new playground. Camp hosts were very friendly.
Being that it was just a few miles off the interstate, I used this as an overnight stop, but wish I could have stayed for more. If in the area, I will return. - Cyclonic

We loved this park! There are no full hook-ups, but two nice dump stations are located near the bathhouse. There are only a few hose bibs, so plan on coming with water. We were lucky in that our site was close enough to a hose bib to run our hose over to our rig to top off the tank. We were the only folks in Campground 4 for a day and a half - that was awesome. However, the paved pads and grass sites are spacious, so even when the park filled up on the weekend it was still very peaceful. Some of the sites have sheltered picnic tables with a convenient shelf above the table. There was one outhouse with two separate toilets. The inside walls of the woman's toilet were a real mess, but the dugout area is vented by fans and there was no odor. The room has a skylight and shuttered, screened windows that allow lots of light to enter - but take a flashlight at night! A full-service bath with flush toilets, sinks and showers is available near the entrance to the camping area of the park. The entrance road has a few twists and turns, but negotiating them at the posted speed limit in a 40' motorhome with a tow was not a problem. It appears that most all sites are located in grassy areas with large trees throughout. Even so, we were able to acquire satellite reception. There is no Wi-Fi. There are a number of trails and plenty of space for walking dogs. There is a small lake and day use area. - Dreaming

This is a very nice, quiet park and very well maintained, owner is very friendly. There are 2 nice big ponds on the property, I assume they have fish in them since we saw people fishing, not sure if they allow swimming in them. The restrooms and office/store are very clean, there are laundry facilities but we didn't go in there. Gravel roads and pads are well maintained, most sites appear fairly level, however some are not, so you need plenty of leveling blocks. That being said everything else we have seen of this whole state is either up hill or down hill. No cable, but antenna will get a few stations, satellite will work at some sites but some have lots of trees so it might not work. ATT cell service is fair. Don't know for sure but I don't think they have wifi. We camped here in a 45' 5th wheel. If ever in this area we would stay here again. - Myrtle the Turtle

Gravel sites with picnic tables and fire rings. Not fancy but clean. No Verizon or satellite reception. - rolling homeless

Nothing fancy park. Skinny entrance road between two fishing ponds. One having a swimming area. Gravel/dirt/mud roads and sites. Lots of grass, fire pits. Do have major BIG pull thru sites. Although the sewer connection is up hill. Able to get 10 channels on the antenna. Hiking trails. Easy in and out with a HDT & trailer. 60 foot long. - Tallboy

Beautiful campground. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. I had trouble backing into #83 at night so the host put me in a more accessible site. Very nice shaded sites with beautiful trees. Some road and train noise but not bad for being close to KC. Clean shower rooms with hot, hot water with no timer. Some things to keep in mind: 1) Site no. 80 -93 are challenging for longer units - all back in with a drop off along the road. The sites on the downhill side looked to be easier (see campground map). 2) Beware of the 10:00p gate closing. MSP will not give you the gate code over the phone; we found that out en-route and were pushing it to make in time. - Zabanya

This is a beautiful park with large sites. Many sites have electric, only a few have 50A. There is water available at spigots in the park but there is no water at sites. The roads are paved and wide. Most sites are gravel, but the 50A sites are paved. The gate house is often unattended but the hosts will either be at their well marked site or at the Check Office which is just past it. Campground gate is locked after 10pm but there is a gate code for getting in. We were able to get satellite at our site but it would be difficult from many others especially when the trees fully leaf out. The park even has has free public wifi. We were there during the week and there were virtually no other people in the park. The campground should be accessed from the park's southern entrance off of Highway 92. Access from the north is winding and there is a low overpass that could cause problems. - docj

Lovely spot. Wish we had more time to stay longer and explore the area. We arrived late, on a weekend, but there was a space open. The back end of the space slanted downwards so we had to gun it to pull out early the next morning. Hopefully we didn't disturb our neighbors too much. I'd love to stay a couple of nights at least next time to check out the mill. - desertrat74

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

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
