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!

Avalon acres is a beautiful little hidden escape from the city. If you're looking for a place close to the city but still want to experience nature this place is perfect.

I have mixed feelings about this site.
Pros: cool site, really cool property, and great location…I mean GREAT location. Very safe! Essentially you are in a very big and private backyard. Great reception. The free fire wood was very considerate. The toilet was really clean and well maintained.
Cons: This is not my first time camping with hip-camp so believe me when I say communication was lacking. Responses were delayed from the start. I was never shown around the camp site and had to figure my way around.
And the review about the water temperature is accurate, I could not figure out how to change the temperature. Granted, I took a very much needed cold shower.
Here is how I can put it, good enough for the value that I stayed the night… bot so good for me to stay a second night as much as that was the original plan (I only booked for 1 night at a time).

Hope this helps.

Also: please clean up after yourself…. Why people leave trash and empty cans at a campsite I will never understand.

It was a beautiful location! We had issues with both apple gps and google gps taking us to the neighborhood over, you have to zoom in and really pay attention to the layout of the area for us to find it. But once we did it was fine. Would camp here again.

It’s a great secluded spot in the suburbs. You will feel at home in the woods.

This was a sweet place to stay the owners and land manager have put a lot of work into the place. Frogs were abundant in the pond and campsites were tucked neatly away from each other. I was settled into an easy access site which was helpful for unloading the car. I’d stay here again.

We were on our way back home after traveling to Grand Canyon and White River NF, and needed to find a place to sleep for the night. Avalon Acres met all of our needs. Firewood was provided as well, which was a nice treat after being in areas with fire bans.

This is such a great place to stay. So close to I-70, restaurants, grocery, whatever you want. Super nice hosts, good camp sites, there's a hint of magic on the property!
