Blue Springs County Park is a well maintained campground. It is easy on and off I-470, about 3 miles south of I-70 just east of Kansas City, MO. There is no traffic noise, many trees and open grassy areas. Some of the sites have full hook-ups and are long enough for big rigs. We stayed in site #13 in the East Loop, but there are many good FHU sites in the West Loop suitable for big rigs. Our site was long and level, but we noticed that many sites nearby sloped down from the paved road to the back of the site which could be a problem leveling your RV. We stayed for 3 nights this trip and will definitely stay again.
Beautiful state park, very green and lush with wild turkey's roaming the park. Our site was not level but we noted many that were. Roads and sites are paved. They have some FHU w/50 amp and also electric and electric and water only. Many sites are big rig friendly. Roads are a bit narrow in the park, but we had no problem navigating them in our motorhome. Park was not crowded, even though it is a lovely setting. Close proximity to Louisville, KY (20 miles or so). Restrooms and showers were clean. Rates are a little high for a state park, but we felt it was worth it. We'd definitely come back.
This park is the only campground in Winchester…and that allows them to significantly overcharge for the services/amenities provided. You must pay to access Tango Internet Wi-Fi service and the campground cable TV is basically unusable, so snowy you can’t see the channels. Over-the-air TV only gets a couple of PBS stations. For the price Wi-Fi should not be an extra charge. Access to the campground is via a narrow city street. Once on the campground property, the road is paved asphalt, but very narrow (one-lane), winding and has pot holes. Turns are tight for motorhomes and long trailers. Only a few campsites are paved, the rest are grass or gravel. Many sites are not level and there is little elbow room between most sites. Not only are the rates high, but they will nickel and dime you with higher rates on numerous special event or holiday weekends, a $50 fee if you show up after the office is closed (8PM), $2/hour for early check-in (before 1PM) or late check-out (after 12 Noon), $4/day per extra person, a $4 charge for a visitor, and no refunds once you have checked-in. Bathrooms were clean, but need updating. There is an extensive RV storage area in the campground and there are also many long-termers. The park is simply overpriced and over managed. We stayed here only because we didn't know better, but will never return. The rate was with a Good Sam discount.
This campground was a perfect, no amenities, overnight stop. The campground host met us when we arrived and guided us into our pull-through site. The campground is big-rig friendly. All sites were crushed rock, surrounded by nice green grass. All sites have a great view of the surround mountains and valleys. There was some highway noise, but not loud enough to be an issue. We will stay here again.
Park is located approximately 28 miles from downtown St. Louis. The pads are concrete, level and a generous size. Neighbors are somewhat close, but no problem putting your awning out. Our rig is almost 44' and we had plenty of space to park it plus our tow. Check-in personnel were friendly and efficient. We didn't use the laundry or showers, but the building looked clean and well cared for. Only drawback was the price and lack of amenities. There is no pool and the restaurant on site was closed. Easy on and off from the highway. WiFi was included in the price and worked well.
