Quirky might be the best word to describe this park. It has a layout that is as diverse as its occupants appear to be. Some units parked off to the side as you enter, others in a long line across from a sports field, and others parked on the field. It's also a bit difficult to find. However, the park is clean, sites pretty level, utilities easily accessible, and it's quiet. The restrooms are dated, but large and clean with good water temp and pressure (adding to the park's quirkiness was one large shower stall with two shower heads facing each other...hmmm). The laundry room was conveniently located, clean, and machines decently priced. Host was friendly and welcoming. Not your typical RV park, and doesn't have the amenities or character of many, but well-maintained and definitely worth an overnight stay. Very conveniently located to the President Truman historical sites.
We stayed here one night. The first contact was pleasant when we called late. The second person in the office was very pleasant and informative despite being busy.
The camp site was large and in the city center. Convenient to lots of historic sites. The camp is diverse... Overnight stays, extended stays for tradesmen working projects, and vacationers. The place was well kept. Great water pressure.
Shower area was large and very functional, hot water was great. Off to our site was a pretty park scene. All the camp site were concrete and good sized. The only downer was the site had to be backed into.
The campsite is well maintained and staff is friendly. TV and WIFI was good. Even though there was a train heard at night, it was not bothersome. Only spent 1 night there. Would go again. Small but good for an overnight stay.
This was a very pleasant place to stay. The train engineer used a quiet whistle a couple of times but up was not offensive. Follow the directions on the website NOT the GPS to avoid sharp turns. Good location for touring Independence.
Cold and miserable Easter weekend. Overall the camp is nice. For being in the middle of Independence it's quiet and we felt quite safe. Neighboring campers were courteous but I believe about 90% of them were long term campers. We saw no kids and only one pet. Pads are concrete and all 30 are full service with plenty of room to maneuver your RV. Each pad has a picnic table but there are no grills at any of the sites. It was too cold to cook out but for summer camping the lack of a grill would be disappointing. There is laundry onsite and the staff is friendly and helpful. We had trouble getting the WiFi to connect but didn't pursue it with the staff since we were gone visiting family most of the day. Restrooms were the big disappointment. We have a small RV so wanted to take advantage of the room for showers. They are large with plenty of plug in's and mirrors. First night it got below freezing so we didn't hook up our water. At midnight I went to the restroom and it smelled like #2. Guests not flushing the toilet. This is guest courtesy much more than maintenance issues. However, Showers had Q-Tips, band aids, hair etc. on the floor on Friday AM and they were still there Sunday AM. By Sunday several stalls were close to being out of Paper. Weekends normally have increased usage and, I feel, also warrant a bit of increased service. There is no playground for children but there is a large grassy area for kids/dogs to run.
Stayed in the campground for one week. The park was clean and maintained. The concrete pads and hook-ups were excellent. Laundry facilities clean and inexpensive. Great place to stay while touring Independence and Kansas City areas. The train whistles are frequent, but after one day you don't really notice them and become accustom to the sound. Look forward to returning for another visit.
The resident manager is a plus. Nearly all sites are back-ins. There is a busy mainline RR track about 3 blocks away and a track adjacent to the park that may not be used at night. The area appears to be a public park but is actually owned and maintained by a local church. The designated entrance on W Pacific is a sharp turn up a steep incline if coming from the west. Entering from S Pleasant may be easier for some.
