“Too Expensive for Quality of Site”

Basswood is quite a ways from the freeway, the sites are very close together, and it was fairly expensive so we would probably not camp here again.

If you are looking for a site for weekend with your family this might be perfect for you. It was close enough to Kansas City, about a half hour to city center, that we were able to take advantage of all the city has to offer but there isn't much to do near the campground.

Most of the sites are so close together, it looks more like a parking lot than a campground. We paid for a deluxe site which turned out to be two sites since the water outlet on ours was broken and they gave us an extension for our hose and we were able to set up our chairs etc in the adjoining site.

As the previous review commented, the campground is in the flight path of the KCI Airport and depending on the weather and/or time of day we had multiply planes overhead. Also, we agree with all of the other comments by previous reviewer.

Welcome to MO where the backroads are like rollercoasters and you'll be lucky to not come in contact with heavy farm equipment coming at you from the opposite direction with no shoulder to hug. So begins the drive to Basswood Resort. Fun in a sports car? Absolutely! In a widebody bus? Not so much. You climb up a long, meandering hill to get to the office. Note: the whole campground is very hilly - great for marathon training. Check-in was easy, polite. Large store inside with some necessary grocery items, a wine selection, beer and malt beverage selection. You can also order up a pizza here. If you would like, a golf cart chaperone will help you to your site. Another narrow (one way, but designated as a two way), steep climb up to our campsite. There is NO WAY that two RV units (or vehicles) could pass each other on that approach. Somebody would have to back up on that narrow, steep, drop-off-on-one-side road. We passed many seasonal units packed in like sardines once we reached the top of the hill. Seriously packed in. This is a predominantly full-timer park with loose rules for said residents as far as site cleanliness is concerned. Vehicles parked out in the road. It was very tight in some places. We were originally supposed to be in site 133, however, when we found it, it was one of the sardined sites. No room to put out the awning/no privacy. Also, site 132 had junk scattered all over between the two sites. Asked to be placed in 135 when we saw it empty. By far, in our estimation, the best site in the place - we walked the whole campground every morning. The 50amp pull-thru sites looked okay. Our site was kind of off by itself. A back-in site, very private, nobody to our starboard, and heavy vegetation for privacy from site 134 on our port. It overlooked a pond/swamp and the frogs singing at night were wonderful to listen to. This is a heavily wooded campground. It's actually quite pretty, almost State Park-like, except for site spacing. Our site was not level. It was soft gravel and because of recent rain, soft mud. It took many levelers and pads to get somewhat level. Good water pressure and 50 amp. Good stargazing here. This is a fishing paradise with several stocked fishing ponds. This campground is in the direct flight path of the Kansas City International Airport - specifically, Southwest Airline's flight path. As the crow flies, you are maybe 5 miles from the airport. There is a plane directly overhead, flying low for landing, every 15 - 30 minutes during the day and every hour at night. This messed with our phone calls quite a bit. Smithville to the east has an awesome little restaurant called Justus Drugstore - A Restaurant. Be sure to check it out! Downtown KC is about a 25 minute drive. Because of the flight traffic noise, and lack of good cell coverage due to said flight path, we couldn't stay here again. For people looking for a true camping experience with smores, fishing, family time, and partying, this is your place.
