    Lee's Summit, Missouri

    Lake Jacomo - Fleming Park, nestled near Prairie, Missouri, is a solid spot for camping with a mix of tent, RV, and glamping accommodations. This place has a bit of everything for everyone. The campground is known for its scenic views overlooking the lake, making it a picturesque spot to set up camp.

    One of the standout features here is the upgraded bathrooms, which visitors have found to be quite nice. If you're planning to stay, make sure to bring some leveling blocks as some sites can be a bit uneven. Shade can be a bit hit or miss, so if you're keen on staying cool, try to snag one of the shaded spots early.

    For those who enjoy a bit of adventure, the campground offers easy access to water activities. The proximity to the lake is a big plus, especially if you enjoy fishing or just relaxing by the water. However, be prepared for some raccoon visitors—they're pretty bold around here, so keep your food secured.

    Families and groups will find the group camping areas convenient, though not all sites have covered shelters, so it's wise to book early. The campground also transforms into a winter wonderland with a drive-through light show during the colder months, which is a hit with the kids.

    Overall, Lake Jacomo - Fleming Park offers a blend of convenience and natural beauty, making it a great choice for a weekend getaway or a longer stay. Just keep an eye on the weather, as some sites can get a bit soggy with rain runoff. Happy camping!
