Sometimes when we look for an RV park near a large city the prices can be a bit scary. With any real estate it is all about "location...location...location." We planned a 5-day stop here in the Kansas City, Missouri area and chose the small town of Independence. We were pleasantly surprised to find a great location and a great price with the Campus RV Park. The "big city" of Kansas City is only 10 miles away.
There are only 30 spaces available and they are all back-ins. They are 45 feet long. The roads are all wide and paved. Each site has it's own grass lawn and a picnic table. Pets are allowed, but a limit of 2 per rig.
The park is right next to the Historic District of Independence. We walked to everything in the town except the Truman Library and Museum. You are well off the highway here, but I-70 or I-435 exits offer easy access. I will say that you can hear train whistles blowing in the daytime hours. The tracks are somewhere nearby but we could never actually see any trains.
The couple that checked us in on the day of our arrival were extremely friendly and got the paperwork done quickly. You can see them and more photos of the park on the park's website (linked above). We will stay here again when we return to the Kansas City area. The park and the town are wonderful.
Until next time.....so long for now!
