We've stayed here several times. Two years ago they upgraded the bathrooms and they are very nice. Some sites are not very level so bring blocks. Shade is tough to find but available if you get the right site.
Some sites are fully sunexposed and some are shaded. Some camp sites are down hill and get soaked when it rains from all the water.
We camped in the group area for my daughter's American Heritage Girls- High Adventure (Wander Women). There are plenty of trees, the water access is very close. Not every group site has a covered shelter area, so make reservations early. The bathroom are just the portable ones, but they are kept very clean. Also, the raccoons are VERY acclimated to humans, and they are not afraid. So, make sure all your food is kept in the cars. I would recommend this spot for anyone. I plan to go back with just my family.
Kids really loved the area and close to a lake this fish. In the winter the campground closes but is transformed into a great drive through winter light show!
The campsites are located on a sloped layout. Some are at the top of a hill and the others lie around the base of the hill. We’ve camped here twice and if it rains the ones down hill get lots of water flowing to them which is not good for tents. Kids can’t have their own tent because they limit the number of tents and people per site. It is across from the lake but there is no lake view from any campsite.
Hard to give an accurate account for our stay due to it raining basically the entire time. When it wasn’t raining the sites were nice and spacious and relatively level. Made for easy set up and break down. Like the other Jackson county campgrounds the convenience of being close to home was nice and because of the rain made it easy to run and grab a pizza. Will go back!
One of the 3 Jackson County campgrounds, but the most in level sites in any of the parks. Sits on top a hill, the sites are cut into the hillside so vary from small tent sites, to RV sites. We camped in our 39’ diesel pusher, had to use lots of wood to level everything up, including extending one of our jacks to the maximum and causing it to throw an error message. Sites run from 20/30/50 amp, some with FHU’s. One site has a view of Lake Jacomo and is somewhat level (#31 I think?) and is hard to reserve on short notice. The bathrooms are decent and clean. Fire pits are allowed, but you have to burn the wood they sell, don’t bring in your own.
As with all three parks in the Jackson County district, this one closes October 31 and re-opens in March. Of all three parks: Blue Springs, Longview, and Jacomo, this one is our very least favorite.
We really enjoyed this campground. The staff were very friendly from start to finish. Our site was perfect for our 32 foot travel trailer. Our site was shaded. as were many others on the campground. There are a handful that do not have any shade. Though we did not have one, there are also a few sites with a Lakeview. Nice playground for the kids, and plenty of grass to take the dogs out. Site was large enough for our trailer and two vehicles and still room for fire pit and awning to come out. A little hwy noise, but nowhere near enough to interrupt our trip.
It’s a good camp ground if you are looking to get out of the city. The only draw back to this site is that you are close to your neighbors.
This is a very clean campground. The staff is very nice and helpful. I will definitely come back.
