Nice little campground below the dam at Smithville Lake

We tried Smith Fork and liked it. The only downside is that some of the campsites are close together/congested, but that’s not necessarily a big negative. We have Verizon and service was good. Camp hosts were great!

Great campground!

Campground is great! Camp hosts Janet and Chris went above and beyond making Halloween perfect for our family. Been here several times and they are more than accommodating. Always a clean, safe and organized campground. Can’t wait until next year to see all of the events!

Closed.....

After going around for almost 1.5 hrs from Smithville due to all the road closures, we finally got to the lake but all the campsites were out of commission to include the visitor's center and the roads were closed. We had to turn back unfortunately.

Quick getaway

Close to Kansas City so it makes a great quick getaway. Clean, friendly, and right next to Smithville Lake. Our pick for a short trip.

Great little spot north of KC

These RV spots have great shade, are spaced nicely apart, and are a quick walk to the lake! Amazing sunsets!

You can rent a boat for a half day or full day with advanced notice! There is a really nice walking/riding trail that goes all through the park! This is a family favorite!

It has it all

We don't stray very far from the KC Metro (50 mile radius).  Of everywhere Smith's Fork is the only one (so far) that offers Electric (30 & 50 amp), Water (2) and Sewer at every campsite.  At just $30 per day it is a steal!

Perfect for families

This is full hook up. They have both 30 and 50 amp. Close to 169 hwy. Perfect for families with young children. Smaller park, very friendly hosts. Love this park have stayed 3 times so far this summer and hoping to once more.
