A great stay, lots of things to do!
The host of this hipcamp is fantastic!!! The stay is great we enjoyed a relaxing break during our long road trip. Everything you need is there, I wish we could have stayed longer!
Great camp site! Close to KC, but definitely away from it all. Shaded camp site, clean, and close to the crick for exploring and wading. Steven is a gracious host and a wonderful man. The kids loved the fishing, ax throwing, and archery. We will be back! Thank you Steven!
Perfect weekend getaway campsite
We spent a weekend at The Hitching Post & have a GREAT time. The campsite was plenty big for two families & had amenities like chairs, bbq grill, swing & firering.
Steve was a great host & helped arrange a visit to the farm next door to meet the animals & a Bigfoot photo-op.
Absolutely stay here
Awesome stay. Large camping area with good tree canopy covering. Mr Steven was very friendly and took us fishing our first day. We were able to visit the neighbor farm the next morning too. Would recommend for any family and we will try to stay again for longer.
This place is a gem!!!! I was a little apprehensive about camping on someone’s land that I had never met before especially with our kids but I’m really happy that we booked at the hitching post because it was such a great experience, especially for our two boys who had not been camping before. The camp itself was really wonderful and had everything you could want when you’re camping with the family. There was a fire pit, a grill top for the fire pit (as well as a charcoal grill), a table, chairs and run leads for the furry kids. There was also a nice little creek close by as well as mowed paths for the kids to roam and explore. Steve, the host, was absolutely wonderful. He made sure that the camp was set up and ready for us he met us at the gate and guided us to our camp. Steve really went above and beyond and had all kinds of fun activities that really made this camping trip for our family. He took us to a farm down the road where the boys got to see, pet, hold all kinds of animals and collect chicken eggs, he took us to an amazing pond where he helped the boys catch some fish, they got to throw knives, tomahawks and shoot bows and arrows (Steve gave VERY thorough safety instructions beforehand). And to top it off, Steve took so many pictures for us! This place is awesome and I highly recommend it to anyone :)
Great secluded camp ground!
I highly recommend this spot! The camp ground was awesome, lots of level ground and a secluded forest feel. We spent lots of time playing in the shallow creek, perfect for our 4/6 year olds. Our camp ground also had a swing, which my girls loved. The host, Steve, couldn't have been more friendly.
The highlight of our trip though, was visiting their farm neighbors. The teenagers that showed us around the farm were extremely nice and patient. They let my kids hold their baby chicks and caught lots of their big chickens for them to hold!
It was very close to the KC metro, so a perfect weekend trip.
The only thing is we wish there had been a port-a-poty or something. We would happily have paid a much higher rate for the camp site if it had some kind of bathtroom!
Delightful stay, unique experience
Steven is a very gracious and knowledgeable host who knows how to have fun! He set up tomahawk, hunting knife, and atlatls with targets, and gave us great instruction on how to throw these safely. Afterwards, we camped at a very well-appointed site with a beautiful canopy of fall leaves overhead and a creek nearby. During the night we heard many sounds of nocturnal animals, which were so interesting to hear--owls, coyotes, deer, and raccoons. We enjoyed our stay immensely and enjoyed the time we spent with Steven. We all definitely want to go back again!
