6 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents185 acres · Higginsville, MO
A quiet country retreat nestled in the picturesque rural outskirts of Higginsville, Missouri. Our yard consists of 3 acres of a 180-acre farm in which we have three RV sites with water and electric hookups, two camping sites and one on-site travel trailer for rent. Wifi is available at all sites, except for Site 3. Green Acres at Red Brick Farm is located just 50 miles east of Kansas City off of I-70 at Exit 49.

Site 2 is on gravel with 30 amp hookup and water, preferably best for RV’s and trailers 25’ and under. Site 1 and Site 3 are on gravel with a 20/30/50 amp hookup and water, best suited for larger RV’s and trailers. We would prefer your travel trailer or RV length to be 35’ or under. You may choose your site location, but due to the small amount of sites we have we may have to alter your choice. This is so we can accommodate our guests in the best way possible, depending on the size of each rig. If you are towing a vehicle or pulling a trailer your total length should be 55’ or under. We will not accept Triple Axels. Site 4 and site 5 are for tents, pop ups, very tiny trailers and are in flexible locations. A 20 amp standard outlet can be provided for site 4 and site 5. For your use is a shower, toilet, and bathroom sink in our farmhouse basement. Please arrive before dusk, so you don’t disturb other campers. Site 6 Is the on-site travel trailer, ‘Ain’t She Cute’. No Pets are allowed when reserving ‘Ain’t She Cute’. The vintage style travel trailer is completely renovated and decorated with collectibles and antiques and is available for booking. It is furnished with a queen size bed, tiny kitchen, TV, wifi, and full size, not trailer size, bathroom. The trailer is for 2 guests, but an additional guest may sleep on the daybed, preferably a child or small adult. We live onsite in our 1920’s Prairie Style home which is also Red Brick Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast with three Guest Rooms available for booking.

You may also want to take a drive or ride on the Old Trails Scenic Byway, Route 24 for a car or motorcycle tour that will reset your pace from city life. We truly hope you enjoy midwest living when visiting Green Acres at Red Brick Farmhouse. For the skilled driver of a RV or travel trailer, going around our circle driveway has not been a problem. We have witnessed a 55 foot truck and travel trailer combination do it with ease. When departing your stay please go slow, swing wide and stay on the gravel. Also have your companion help guide you around the circle drive. More about us: The proprietors of Red Brick Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast, ‘Ain't She Cute' and Green Acres at Red Brick Farmhouse RV and Campsites are Annette Meinershagen Dittmer and also on the broom closet staff is her husband, Kenton Dittmer. After working in several restaurants and becoming a Home Economics teacher, she came to the realization that she loved teaching Foods. Annette gained much inspiration from her mother and father in developing her gift for hospitality; preparing and serving meals for events and parties over the years. Along with her husband, Kenton, (a very talented building contractor) they have done much renovating of their 100 year old prairie style home and their original restaurant, Red Shanty BBQ and Roadside Cafe, located in Higginsville. Since opening the restaurant in 2008 Annette wanted to fulfill her dream of running a Bed and Breakfast, so in 2015 the venture began. In 2016 she added ‘Ain’t She Cute’ and the RV and camping sites. Annette and Kenton, natives of Higginsville, live on the property. More about the farm: Our quiet country retreat, in the picturesque rural outskirts of Higginsville, Missouri, has been in our family for four generations. Currently farming the land has been minimized just to row crops, but there was a time when there was a team consisting of a mule, named Jamie and horse, named Dan that tilled the soil for the crops. There were milk cows and the generations before me used a separator for the cream and milk. They had pigs, chickens, and another horse named Clipper that my mother road to school. They had several vegetable and fruit gardens and even planted peanuts. There are remnants of the old buildings that once stood on the farm. The old chicken house foundation is located near the current fire pit and a hand dug well is covered by an old tractor tire we use for our compost. The small shed in the back corner of the yard was once a pump house, a playhouse, then a chicken house and now a Junque house. There once was a barn, a silo, a feed lot, an outhouse, and a hog shed. There were old tires, iron wheels, brick piles, and a gas tank on stilts. There was a screened in porch, beautiful hydrangeas and still a wonderful front porch. There were lots and lots of large pecan and walnut trees. At one point there were over 60 wonderful shade trees in the yard. We have lost some, but still enjoy many of the trees my grandfather planted. My mother, her siblings and parents moved here in the early years of WWII. During that period of time her brother died flying over Germany fighting for us. Our children lived all their grade school and high school years in this Red Brick Farmhouse. Some winters were so terribly cold in this old house it was almost miserable. I love this old house and it is truly been a labor of love. Again, Thank you, Kenton and Annette

Camping near Kansas City guide

Overview

Explore art, history, entertainment, and even the great outdoors in Missouri’s largest city, Kansas City, which stretches into Kansas. Downtown, the eclectic Power & Light District is the hub for restaurants, bars, and live entertainment. Sample the famous barbeque while in town to decide whether it truly is the nation’s best. Numerous RV parks and camping spots can be located in the suburbs and surrounding towns, with state parks and public campgrounds among the mix. Campers can even stay at Worlds of Fun theme park, a unique option offering big-rig friendly RV sites and cabin rentals with roller coasters whizzing overhead.

Where to go

Kansas City

Downtown is dotted with mesmerizing museums, like the National World War I Museum & Memorial, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. To explore all KC offers, you may find camping and cabin accommodations sprinkled throughout the city and its suburbs, including the towns of Independence, Raytown, Lee’s Summit, and Liberty. Private RV parks and campsites offer free wifi, swimming pools, full hookups, and more.

Watkins Mill State Park

Northeast of downtown, the Watkins Woolen Mill State Historic Site showcases a sliver of Missouri history, with a well-preserved 19th-century textile mill to explore. Get a taste of the 1870s life and then hit the biking and hiking trail, which loops around a 100-acre lake. The onsite campground is well wooded, offering electric hookups at the majority of the park’s 96 campsites.

Weston Bend State Park

About 40 minutes northwest of downtown is another of the Kansas City region’s scenic state parks. Offering views of the Missouri River, hiking and biking trails, and a historic tobacco barn, Weston Bend is a retreat from the bustling city. Campers will find tent sites and RV campsites with electric-only hookups.

Lake Jacomo, Longview Lake, and Blue Springs Lake

If you want to hit the waters while in town, trek over to Lake Jacomo, Longview Lake, or Blue Springs Lake, hot spots for sailboating, boating, fishing, kayaking, and more. A number of hiking trails line the waters. Jackson County Parks & Rec operates three public campgrounds along the shores, including Blue Springs Campground, Jacomo Campground, and Longview Campground, all of which have tent camping and RV sites with full hookups, as well as primitive and electric-only sites.

When to go

Spring and fall are the best time for visiting Kansas City. Cooler temperatures prevail, making outdoor adventures more pleasant. Summer brings heat and humidity, but travelers can still enjoy all that the city offers. Winter is generally not a recommended time for camping, as freezing temperatures and winter precipitation blast the region, but decent weather can often be found amid the mix.
