Milo Farm Sacred Land

Milo Farm was established organically just a few years ago. The energy here so amazing we wanted to share! There's a story behind the sacredness of this land, Loni can share that with you if you ask! The lodge was built then the camping sites, then the Hippie Trailer, which is located near the west woods near the Fairy Forest. Then the Bunkhouse was established, it's just past the barn on the north end of the property. The lodge, where the Airbnb and pool are is centrally located on the land. We rent out the lower level guest quarters for non-campers. It has two saunas. There are 2 stocked ponds, miles of trails, pool, Zen garden, farm animals and more. Feel the energy of the sacred land. Find the vortexes here! Bless Mother Earth and spend some time in nature at this magical place Great for the spiritually minded with several meditation spots and portals. Ask about availability of the art golf cart rental if interested. Loni can take you on a guided history, nature and meditation hike if you sign up for that. There are events happening some weekends you can participate in. Loni is a spiritual intuitive and can do a reading using the Milo Farm Oracle cards she created! Ask for availability of these things. Milo has a lot to offer! Located in Eastern Jackson County MO, just 30 minutes from downtown Kansas City & 20 min from the sports stadiums.

Inner City Oasis

1 site · Tent1 acre · Independence, MO
1.4 acres, heavily treed, located minutes from downtown highway access, and the Royals/Chiefs stadium. This property was neglected and abandoned for 20 years. It is clear it was loved at one point, but the owners were too old to maintain it. We are still uncovering mysteries, finding statues, benches, and unexpected niches. Feel free to explore the abandoned path (if you can find it), the slanted orchard, and an open area we call "The Secret Garden." You can even enjoy a short scavenger hunt to help you engage with the various objects we have found along the way!

The best camping near Harry S Truman National Historic Site guide

Overview

About

Learn a little about our 33rd president when you visit his home. The rangers and volunteer tour guides here have an obvious love for Truman and his family.

The living room, parlor, and kitchen in the home are just the way Truman left them. They paint a clear picture of life in the mid-20th century. Unfortunately, the second story of the home (the bedrooms) is not open to the public.

You need tickets to take the tour of the house, and the tours are intimate, so they fill up early. In fact, the 8-person tours sometimes book several days in advance, so you may want to make a reservation ahead of time. Tickets are available at the Visitor Center, which is about six blocks away (parking is tight around the home, so you may want to walk). The short movie at the Visitor Center is a good warm-up for the tour itself. The tours are timed, so don't miss your reservation!

Campsites and RV hookups are available through the area around the Missouri-Kansas border. Hook up your RV at an urban campground featuring fire pits and a giant treehouse, or pitch your tent by a lake where you can get some fishing in.
