Nice park

Great place, near Kansas City.

Better than I expected

Camped here over the weekend, when arrived the staff was very friendly with everything, the site we had didn't have shade and most sites had full hook-ups. The campground was nice and clean with friendly campers next to us

Nice Stay

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.

Loved the hike!

The only down side about going when we did was that the lake was up so no swimming. But we went for a awesome hike.

Hillsdale Stare Park

Hillsdale is a nice place to camp that isn’t too far out of the city. Decent accommodations and nice camp sites near the water front.

Very nice campground

Great place to camp! Clean facilities

Quiet and peaceful

Longview campground is not only peaceful and quiet but also in a very pretty area filled with wildlife.   There is an attendant and security arms when entering the campground and requires a key code to enter.   There are over 100 sites with tent, electric, and full hook ups. The campgrounds are open from April-end of September with prices from $21-33.  

There are fire grills and picnic benches at each site and the sites are level on gravel. There is a playground, volleyball net, restrooms and showers. There are 6 picnic shelters with bathrooms scattered on the way to the marina. The lake is beautiful but is not within walking distance from the campground.

We stayed from a Saturday night until Thursday. There weren’t a lot of campers so it was nice and quiet.  We saw deer running through the campgrounds and will stay again.

First to Review
Nice quiet campground

We have stayed there about 6 times. Very quiet. Needs some renovations. Sites are not level and need either more gravel or concrete. Most of the sites are 30 amp and no dump station. Water and electric only.

Big rigs at some of the sites will have a problem. Renember this is a old campground. Fishing from the shore is great no boats. Adult children ( seniors) lol are there every day looking to catch dinner.

Fort Scott lake

Fort Scott Lake lake is tent camping only no animenities. ( no water, electric or bathrooms)

One night stay

It was our first trip to test out our first camper. Had little trouble backing in the spot but having deluxe lot on a concrete slab was a big plus.

Nice with lots of shade

Lots of trees lots of wildlife Had deer walk right through the campground when we were there. shower house/ rest room we’re clean for the most part but a little rundown. Also if you have kids that go camping with you chances are your cell phones will not work so the kids probably will be very bored lol

Zero lake access

All of the campsites are designed for campers so there’s minimal grass areas for tents. Almost all are full sun and there’s zero lake access from the campground.

Hit or miss

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.

Great for scout groups

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.

Nice little privately owned campground

Nice little privately owned campground with a great value for your $. Definitely off the beaten path but full hookups for $15 per night. No T-Mobile service. Kinda backwoods and could definitely use some updating but pleasant all the same.

Quaint and quiet a little peace of heaven

We are a quite campground with a small stock pond and a shower house for men and women. We also have a laundry facility and a clubhouse, we have firewood, and Ice. So come by and see us and enjoy a quiet weekend. You may see deer, and birds, squirrels ,Chipmunks, sometimes turkey. So we would love to meet you.

Easy in and out

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!

Very nice and quiet

We stayed for 1 night on a nice gravel site. Had full hook up and nice shade. The campground offered some hiking and walking routes. Kids had a great time at the playground.

Does not exist

Out of business

Basic but good

This was a good overnight stop. It's not the prettiest spot but we got a spot under the trees. Laundry and bathrooms were clean. The road in camp was rough so drive slow. Staff was nice. Bought some good cheese at the camp store.

Spacious spaces

Spent 1 night at Longview Campground as we get used to our new-to-us pop up. We were in spot 43. Electric only 50/30. Our spot had good shade in the afternoon but most did not so check the website’s descriptions. Plenty of room to spread out, fire ring and picnic table. Long walk to the bathroom, even longer walk to the showers. We camp with our dogs and there were plenty of others also. One particularly rude neighbor, let theirs bark all night long.

It’s fine

Decent time. Not as nature-y as I would’ve like, but worth visiting.

Great little family Getaway!

The lake itself is small compared to most Kansas area lakes but sufficient for skiing. The lake offers hiking/biking trails around it, a campground, fishing, a swimming beach with a picnic area and volleyball courts. The lake and surrounding areas are well maintained and clean. The campground offers primitive camp sites and a few electric sites with a picnic table and fire pit. A lower campground offers pull in sites, a bathroom/shower house and a playground. Overall Lake Miola is a great location to getaway and enjoy the outdoors.

Hit or miss

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.

Quiet, clean campground

Nice camping area. We have stayed at this campground multiple times when visiting the KC area for sporting activities. Showers are clean. Sites are well taken care of. Never had any issues with noise, etc. It is a great spot to set up camp and then take advantage of all that KC has to offer.

Friendly staff

We made a last minute decision and decided to stay somewhere near KC after a long cross country trip. With it being Memorial Day weekend, we new it would be hard to find a place that would allow a same day reservation. Mark and Kyle at Walnut Grove could not have been more friendly and accommodating when we called to try to reserve a spot.

When we arrived, the staff flagged us in and showed us to our site. There was free WiFi, clean restrooms, and a nice little shop. Our site had a 50amp hookup for electric, and water/sewer. There is also a small area for dogs to run around in, while I wouldn’t consider it a true “dog park”, it still was nice to have a designated area to take your dog.

The most negative thing about this place is that the sites are right on top of each other. I would estimate about 6 feet separated our camper from the RV next to us. For the price to stay here, I would have liked a little more room/privacy, and a few more options for things to do within the campground.

If it weren’t for the super cool staff, I’d probably rate this location with fewer stars. It worked great as a short term stay, but in my opinion it’s not a place I’d want to stay for several days/nights.

Nice campground and beach!

We had a very nice time here. Everything was very clean. We camped on top of a hill from the lake in an RV site and with being completely surrounded by neighbors, we had enough space not to feel crowded. You could not easily hear your neighbors conversations. We almost stayed an extra night and had we not booked somewhere else ahead of time we would have! Nice spot.

Nice campground close to home

We were looking for something close to home to try out our new-to-us pop up. We were able to reserve a spot on short notice. Our spot- 24 - was perfect. Nice afternoon shade. Very level. Plenty of room to spread out. Close to bathroom but not too close. Fairly quiet - there was some road noise from overnight work being done but I’m sure this is not typical. We had water & electric hook ups

Great spot for an overnight.

A buddy and I hiked the Prairie Spirit Trail and used Lake Garnett for our overnighter. The area is quiet from road traffic and there were no other campers around us for this night. We stayed at the very north end of the Lake (aptly named North Lake Park). Plenty of trees around for hammock camping as this is what we did that night.

Cabins were great

Our friends stayed in the cabins which are awesome. The RV sites were right on top of each other so would not great. Very little green space but had a lot of amenities and the cleanest bathrooms!
