Milo Farm Sacred Land

21 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents50 acres · Buckner, MO
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.

The best camping near Weston Bend State Park guide

Overview

About

Looking for a serene campsite not far from Kansas City? Look no further than Weston Bend State Park. Located just 30 minutes outside of the city, this park feels like a rural retreat, with a pastoral setting and scattered woodlands. Take in panoramic views of the Missouri River from the park’s scenic overlook, or explore the historic tobacco barn. Several hiking and biking trails take adventurers through the park’s varied terrains. The park’s large, private campsites are a big hit with visitors.

Notable Camping Spots

  • Best for camping with friends or family: Weston Bend Campground’s two family sites offer paired campsites with shared spaces and amenities.
  • Best for newbie RVers: Weston Bend Campground has two pull-thru sites that make it easy to park your rig.
  • Best for big rigs: Weston Bend Campground offers 50-amp electricity at select sites.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Campsites are reservable April 15 through October 31, with walk-up availability during the off season.
  2. Weekend reservations require a two night stay, either Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday.
  3. Water and showers are offered April 15 through October 31, with a single potable water spigot accessible during the winter months.
  4. Reservations may be made 12 months in advance and are recommended for holidays and weekends during the peak camping seasons.

When to go

When the weather is warm, this park is at its busiest, both for visitors enjoying the park and the access to KC. Summers can be hot and humid, when not relaxing in the shade. In spring, grab a jacket before you hit the trails since the weather can vary. In October, fall colors reach their peaks, promising epic views from the scenic overlook. The winter season is especially quiet. Watch for bald eagles visiting and nesting along the river. You may encounter freezing temps and precipitation, so go prepared.

Know before you go

  • This is a gated park. The gate locks at 9pm during the peak season and at 6pm during the off season. Campers must arrive before posted times to enter.
  • Eight hiking and biking trails take visitors through bottomland forests, along the river, and past historic sites. Bring your gear, and hit a trail—or several.
  • If you’ll be camping in the winter, bring binoculars to watch for bald eagles and other wildlife.
  • Head into Kansas City to explore the history, sports, restaurants, and museums of this vibrant city.
