We recently stayed 4 nights/5 days and enjoyed it. The lake is big with a sand beach (non alcoholic beverages allowed unfortunately for the adults) for the kiddos. We enjoyed all the covers on the lake so we could anchor out and swim! The shower houses and outhouses were probably some of the cleanest I’ve ever seen and fully restocked and cleaned daily. The grounds are close to town Incase you forgot anything. The rules are super strict when it comes to day passes, boat passes, and having your pass visible in a window. Also the rangers seemed persistent, almost stalker like. We were simply driving around checking out all the park has to offer and got stopped for no reason and asked what we were doing going loop to loop. Some other downfalls were our spot was 13” unlevel. Luckily we had several blocks of wood to help level our camp out. The grass wasn’t mowed. And it was only electrical hookup (which wasn’t a big deal since we were in hose length of the drinking water so we could refill our tanks). Despite the downfalls, we plan to be back!
We’ve been to Weston Bend once before, but not with our pop up. Sites are fairly close together. No water hook ups and spigot water was kind of funky.
Our site was just down the road from the showers, but could potentially be an up hill journey for some sites.
The town of Weston will keep us coming back. Great wineries and shops. Just outside KC makes it super convenient for us!
Didn’t take too many pics this time!
Camp ground is great. There are 2 shower houses, 1 new one torwards the front and one in the farthest loop. There is a small lake great for kayaking and fishing boats. The swim beach has been closed because of excesive vegetation growth. The trail wraps the lake and connects to the edge of the campground. There is a couple historic sites not far on the side of the lake, quick little drive.
Sooo many things to do!!! We love taking our horses to Crows creek, there is an amazing barn with stalls and it’s withing viewing distance of your camper/tent so you don’t have to worry. Trails start directly from your campsite, you can also take your bikes, paved and mountain bike trails. You also can’t forget the wonderful lake and the beautiful views.
Nice accommodations from camping spots, motel rooms, cabins and houses. Well ran. Golf carts, a pool, activities for the kids. Only drawback is the airplanes overhead going to and from the airport.
Stopped here for an overnight on our way home to Georgia from Yellowstone. It’s ok for a 1-night stop. I wouldn’t stay more. The sites are level, with long pull-throughs, with full hookups. But there is no shade. Also no store. There is a grill/bar that serves dinner, drinks and appetizers. Pool, playground, dog park, stocked fishing pond, laundry. Bathroom/shower facilities were ok. Several text sites did have shade.
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.
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.
The campground is on the final approach for the airport, so you get to see a lot planes flying overhead, which you don’t even notice cause they are quieter than they used to be be, and I think they shut down flights around 10pm. At least I didn’t hear them. The campground it’s self is clean and the staff was nice. We stay here when we visit our son and daughter-in-law.
I don’t fish but others says the fishing is good. The store has a few things you might need. The food is ok, but they do deliver your food to your campsite.
