    This was where we went on our first trip. It’s close to home, about 35 miles north west of Kansas City, MO. I’d advise making reservations, especially if you have a bigger rig. I think there was 36 sites, total. A couple are for tents only, some have 30 amp elec hookups, a few have 50 amp. Our 5er is 38 feet, we were in site #34. We barely fit. The cost for our site, with 50 amp service, was only $23 a night. I think that’s a bargain!

    None of the sites have water or sewer, but there is a dump station and water fill place at the camp loop entrance. We didn’t use the shower house, but did look in. It looked like it was well taken care of and clean. There was a washer and dryer, coin op.As you come into the park, there is a off leash dog park. It has an area for small dogs only, and another area for any size dog.

    There are 4 or 5 tobacco barns in the park. Historical and educational.

    There is a nice lookout on a bluff above the Missouri river, you can see Leavenworth, KS very well. 2 telescopes are provided to get a better look.

    We saw rabbits, deer, squirrels,  and wild turkeys. We saw an indigo blue bunting. It’s a smallish bird, very vibrant blue color.

    There are many trails, of varying lengths and difficulties, and well marked with different color blazes. One trail goes into the town of Weston, I think it was a little over 3 miles.

    Weston is a neat little town, especially if you’re into history. It was the second largest town in Missouri for a long time, only St. Louis was bigger. Then the river changed course, moving away from the town. It shrunk a lot after that.

    If you like a lot of activities, pool, club house, dances, etc. this is probably not the place for you. But if you’re looking for beauty in nature, quiet, relaxation then you’d most likely enjoy staying here.
