Hope you like airplanes!!! Not too far from KCI and planes making their final decent fly right over top. Campground itself was clean with very friendly staff. RV lots were cramped however. It seems as if in its prime this place was the place to be but has since kind of run down a bit. Need to start investing in it before it’s too far gone. Ordered pizza from the shack for lunch one day…it was meh. Had great camping neighbors tho and with it being the weekend before Halloween several folks brought candy to hand out to kids. Won’t return.

Great place to camp.

During the camping season this campground has nice large shower houses and clean bathrooms. They sell ice and firewood at gates. Pleasant campground, very nice lake. I camp with kids from infant through 18 and hot showers and decent bathrooms are a must for us. Close to Smithville Missouri.

Primitive camping only-great fishing

Pony Creek Lake is mainly a fishing area but does offer primitive camping on the South West area of the lake. This area is a mowed flat section.

Nice fishing lake-beautiful view

Sebetha lake is located a few minutes from the town of Sebetha and is a nice area for camping. The camp sites are Electric and Water on gravel. For Rvers There is a group of campsites when you first come in which are not shaded very well, but there are some scattered sites around the lake that are nicely shaded. We were in site 14 with our door facing the lake. What a beautiful view! We had a fire ring, a raised grill, picnic table, and trash barrel. The grounds are well maintained. For primitive camping there are sites scattered around lake which woul make good single or group sites. There is a cement bathroom by the permit station which has vault toilets and was not something I would feel comfortable using. It looks as if they would be the Emergency shelter. It would take a really big emergency for me to go in them. Outside the bathrooms were 2 nice picnic tables under a shelter.

The lake offers boating, canoeing, jet skiing, nice nature trails, bird-wildlife viewing, scenic drive,and beautiful lake views. There was hardly any traffic going by our area so it was mostly quiet with an exceptional train in the distance. All and all a nice experience.

Beautiful lake with walking path

This campground is mainly for Rvs. The campsites are full hook ups which are $20. The sites each have a picnic table, and fire pit. They are on pavement, level, and are kind of close together. There is a nice playground away from the sites along with a fenced in sand volleyball court. The park also has a frisbee golf course. The lake/pond has a paved sidewalk surrounding it with plenty of benches scattered to just rest or enjoy the lake and it's wildlife. You can hear the bull frogs, geese, and coyotes when the sun goes down. There is a train track behind the lake, and it seems to have a train every few hours that you can hear from your site. A couple of things that I noticed was the large number of vehicles coming through the campgrounds that were not staying hear. It was very busy and noisy. They also have 2 large fenced in dog runs for the pups.

Everyone should experience Halloween here

A few years back we were told to come experience Halloween at Indian Cave State Park. I was skeptical, but once we went we were hooked and keep coming year after year. We even won the decorating contest last year-The prize is free camping, can't beat that. People come from all over to partake in this fun time. There is the decorating of the camp sites, pumpkin rolling, haunted hay rack rides, trick or treating for the young and old, and it's really an experience.

We stay in a site that is your basic State Park sites-Electric. In the campground there are vault toilets(not the cleanest, but by far not the worst). The bath house is a ways walk. There are lots of trails to wander through and lots of fun to be had.

Small campground, free, on the lake.

It's in the Conservation Area of Missouri on Pony Express Lake. Easy to get to. Gravel road to the camp areas. Very small. Only 7 or 8 sites. We had a van. There was an RV there and a tenter. Picnic table and fire ring. There is a boat landing further down the gravel road past the campground, different finger of the lake. Fishing. Pit toilet, no water or hook ups for RVs. Very quiet place and of course, you can't beat free!

nice, basic campground

The state park is well maintained but doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles! Sites are flat, mostly pull through. Bathrooms and showers are nice and clean. Pool was closed for construction when we stayed, but looked nice. They have really nice little cabins for rent is camping isn’t your strong suit! Not much in the area to visit if fishing isn’t your thing though! There is a drive through nature preserve fairly close but we didn’t go do it. Kayak rental is available but if fishing isn’t your thing this might not be the park for you. Lots of flat roads for biking though!

Small quiet park

Small park.sites are right next to each other. Picnic tables and fire pits are on site gravel. All roads are narrow one way with the dumpstation at the back end of park with trash dumpsters there. So on a sunday you will get stuck in the dumpstation line to drop off your trash even if you don't need to dump. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Sites are pretty level. Great playground area for the kids.

A lovely place to get away

We needed a place to stop over and stumbled upon Basswood Resorts on our way back from the Ozarks. What a find! It's located 20 miles north of Kansas City and had full hookups, and even wifi and cable. It was beautiful and well kept. We were lucky enough to get a site across from one of its 5 small lakes. You could fish in the lakes and didn't even need a license. We watched kids get excited as they caught fish after fish.

There was a store which had a pizza place inside, playgrounds, swimming pool, outdoor games, a game room, volleyball, trails, and even golf carts for rent. Very family friendly place. It also had a fenced dog run which was great for the pups. Wish I would have known about this place when my children were young; they would have loved it.

It was scenic and relaxing and we will definitely stop again.

Very clean, easy access, helpful hosts

Easy access off of highway, well maintained grounds and facilities. Very, very clean bathrooms and laundry. Hosts present and helpful. Would stay again without hesitation.

Perfect quite campground

Always have great fun and enjoy relaxing here. There is a trail to walk or bike ride. Small lake to canoe or kayak or fishing crom the shore line. Whole campground is nice and level. If you have kids you can see them anywhere in the campground especially when they are playing with other kids in the playground located on the middle.

9/7/18

Even though it rained, it was a nice place and we will be back.

Nice Campground

There is plenty of trails for walking, hiking, and bike riding. This is a nice campground that offers basic, and electric hookups. The sites don't have water at each spot but they have filling stations spread out. Each loop offers something different with the view. The shower houses are nice. The dump station offers 4 campers at a time.

Quite and relaxing

Some campsites are a long walk to any facilities.

a great place!

This place is very nice. Very clean bathhouses and property, friendly staff, nice pool, great fishing, fun family activities, nice camp store/pizza kitchen. The only two things I wasn’t expecting were: 1. it’s pretty close to the airport, but you don’t notice the planes except when you’re outside; 2. the sites (except premium ones) are pretty close together. We loved it and will definitely be back!

Great campground

Great camping. Large sites. Wonderful lake access. Bathrooms need some work. Automatic motion sensor lights, that you actually have to step into the dark to activate.

It's AOK

We came in after the office was closed and the owners were very nice and accommodating. He showed us to our campsite and directed us in like an airplane- what a sense of humor. The campgrounds were very well taken care of, you could tell they took pride in them. We had full hook-ups. The sites were a little close together and you could hear some highway noise, but in all the campground was pretty. There was a small lake where you could fish(catch and release only) and even a kayak you could take out. There was a pool, a playground, a sand volleyball area, and a basketball area. The shower house was very clean. The tent area was nice with lots of room between them. We would have stayed longer than one night, but we were on our way to the Ozarks.

great family and kid friendly place

was great kids playing with each other going from group to group getting more kids to play. You can see them from anywhere in the camp ground. small lake for fishing and kayaking. Bike trail and playgrounds.

very nice

very beautiful campground with views of the lake. nice beach just a short 5 min drive away. also horse trails and facilities to accommodate if you’re into that. $5 bundle of firewood was weak at best but got the job done. will be back!!

Perfect for fishing

Camped here many times. Even before had camper and was still tent camping. Great fishing not far. Boat ramp close. Have left boat in water on bank.
