Huge Park with 300 tent and 121 RV, plus you can dry camp on the lake's edge in undeveloped areas. Flat and grassy. Not a lot of shade. Our concrete pad had chain hooks in the concrete so that you could chain your RV down in the event of high wind (tornado?) Oh my. Great recreation lake for boating, fishing, personal watercraft, skiing. Swim beach. Kansas has complicated rate structure: daily State Park entrance fee (or annual pass) plus camp fee, plus utility fees broken down by one, two or three utilities, plus "premium site" fee if pull through. Take your calculator. Cawker City is nearby...world's largest ball of twine.
Lovely, hilly and grassy park. Small capacity and worth getting into. Flat spot with no leveling. Picked fresh blackberries at the site (limit is 1 gallon per person per day, to be consumed on site). Watch the chiggers. Paved internal road, wide space and 50 AMP. Missouri is really upgrading their parks with 1/10-1% sales tax. Lewis and Clark history interpreted by Missouri Park Staff. Town of Weston is interesting and quaint.
Watkins Woolen Mill State Park. Missouri parks continue to be upgraded with 1/10-1% sales tax. Internal paved roads, some concrete pads (ours was gravel but level). 50 Amp service. Large 2 sided dump station with two fresh water spigots New restrooms and individual shower rooms. Well shaded, grassy and hilly. Deer, wild turkey, owls, racoons and other abundant wildlife. This is a beautiful park with large fishing lake with beach (10 HP motor limit), paved bike/hike trail, and the US only remaining 19th century woolen mill with all equipment remaining. Watkins Mill, family home, out-buildings, grounds are well interpreted by Missouri Park interpretive staff ($2.50 admission is worth it). Great place to stay and relax. Jesse James birthplace and farm is 3 miles, interpreted by Clay County Park staff. Good site to visit, too, but $7.00 admission is a little steep, although we happily paid it.
Wildwood, Missouri. Missouri Parks continue to be upgraded by 1/10 of 1% sales tax. We had a very wide concrete pad for our fifth wheel and long enough for the truck, too. 50 AMP service. Spacious, shaded, forested, totally a beautiful spot. We stayed the full 15 day allowable, and it was over a 100 degrees the whole time! Dump station and water fill are in the full sun, so very hot. Hard to imagine this is really a metropolitain area, just outside of St. Louis. Hiking and biking are available. Pool nearby
Several camping sites are available in this park. Sites near the lake were "active" with boaters. We stayed in a heavily wooded camp area with no hookups for three nights. Good walking area. Trees were in need of trimming. Many "widow makers" were just hanging from trees and dangerous. Trees were low and some unavoidable when driving on the roadways. Too bad, because otherwise a pleasant park.
Easy to find and to enter. Park personnel were not up to the minute on available spaces, and charged me for a premium site when none were available. Host refunded difference. Grassy and spacious. Not much separation between rigs, but not too bad. We would camp here again.
This is an older park dating from the 30's, formerly a mobile home park. We had partial shade in a back-in spot. It was tight for us. Larger motorhomes had to work hard to get in and out, but everyone seemed to do it okay. This is a city RV park not a country park, so don't expect a spacious grassy setting. If being in the city is important, this is the place. Parking is side by side, on gravel. Owners were friendly and accommodating. Wi-Fi was free. We had 50 Amp, water and sewer. Sewer pipe was at back of rig, so a long stretch with the hose. It was slightly up hill, and hard to dump. Not a fancy park but I would stay here again though I would look for a different site. Also, some rigs are very long term. One owner said they were slowly eliminating long terms so that the park could serve more recreational users. This will take time. Access is very easy off of I-35 and west on Johnson Drive. Good shopping nearby in many directions. Lots of restaurants. Look up Wood Yard BBQ on Merriam Lane. A hole in the wall with terrific food. Pick up and bring back to rig to eat.
