My husband and I dreamed of having land with nature but we work in the city. We found 6.8 acres that is solar powered and in the heart of Kansas City. You can have the feel of being in the woods while only less than a mile from several restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations. You can hear the sounds of the city while surrounded by trees. We have several deer that live on our property and the woods surrounding our property. If you are going to visit the Kansas City Chiefs or Royals we are 6.1 miles from the stadiums. We are only 3 blocks from a Kansas City metro stop. Learn more about this land: We offer tent spaces or parking places for people that want to sleep in their cars. My husband and I dreamed of having woods and nature. We found a way to make our dreams come true in May of 2017. Our jobs are in the city and so we compromised and bought 6.4 acres in the heart of Kansas City. We have dreamed of living off the grid. Our property is solar powered and we are only on the grid for water. We have some big plans for our camping area so check back in the future to see our progress! This campground is almost 4 acres and surrounded by trees...yet you are 3 minutes from a Hyvee, Sonic, Subway, Olive Garden, and many other restaurants and stores. We are located 6 miles from the Chiefs and Royals Stadiums. On our little campground you can hear the sounds of the city, but feel like you are also in the country. We occasionally see deer and other wild life. We are zoned agricultural and and so are the neighbors to the South. We wanted to save this area to help support the wild life that has been trapped inside of city limits. There is a public metro transit 3 blocks from the property. It is Kansas City Metro stop 251.  You will want to look at the photo that has the parking, camping, trash, and spigot posted. We just added a shower house with two showers!

Due to circumstances, we arrived after dark which sucked. It's a great spot once we sorted everything out w/marginal visability, signage, and dated map. Sounds of the city while being tucked away in such a beautiful spot.

Best Rest Ever
A night of quiet contemplations while gazing into a fragrant campfire followed by uninterrupted sleep. Easy in and out. Composting toilets are surprisingly comfortable. Neither my first nor last visit to this oasis just 20 mins from home!

Quick overnight!
Nice private feel but very accessible from the city. Facilities are clean and convenient. We were there for a very short stay but enjoyed it!

Beautiful property in a suburban setting. We enjoyed the separation from the city. There was the expected sounds of the city and the light pollution but it was very nice to feel like we were almost out away from a city completely.
