Enchanted Oaks: Camp is like a small park. I live on 7 acres in the country, just 25 min. from downtown Kansas City on the Kansas side and 25 miles from Lawrence, and the University of Kansas. The property has forest, trails, a 1.5 acre fishing pond, paddle boat, picnic table and shelter. Very peaceful. We have 4 tent sites and one RV site.

Darrel's property is beautiful and well suited to campers and travelers of all kinds. He is a gracious host and he provided amenities such as a covered cook-space and fire pit (with free firewood!). A paddle boat is available for use on his pond, which is also full of bass and bluegill for fishing. If you would prefer to just sit around the fire and relax, Darrel is a joy to talk to. The property offers several comfortable places to camp and is a short drive from the fun and action of Kansas city. We loved our tay at Enchanted Oaks and will be back in the future!

Truly enchanted. Darrel and Barb are so caring to their land and those who share in it. We felt so comfortable and right at home during our stay and didn’t want to leave. Would encourage anyone to share in the enchantment and bring friends. Be ready to fall in love with Enchanted Oaks and feel all the splendor.

Darrel went above and beyond as a host! Excellent upkeep to the campsites and a beautiful piece of land to explore - with a shared fire pit and picnic table area.

There was unlimited fire wood for the fire pit, and a grill that we could use as well.

My favorite part was being able to keep the dogs OFF leash.

Essential to my stay was the access to WiFi and electricity since I’m passing through on a work trip.

Felt like my own little piece of paradise... and it even came with a welcome snack!

Thanks so much Darrel - we will definitely be back!

The large fire pit at night in front of the lake.And our dogs enjoyed exploring the rest of the property, including this bridge and a beautiful pond.Our dogs enjoyed playing in the field here!Tucked away in our hidden Oasis in one of the many campsites at Enchanted Oaks.

The entire experience was great. The campsites were dispersed all over and the property was incredible. Darrel was an excellent host and basically provided you with everything you could need for a great time camping. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Darrel and Barbara were EXCELLENT hosts! Sadly, we were only able to stay for one quick night on a roadtrip from St. Louis to Denver - we would have loved to explore the property even further! The camping spots were very secluded and quiet, the pond on the property is lovely, and there's an awesome fire pit set up so you can enjoy the views all through the night :) Barbara was so accommodating and sweet and set us up nicely with trash cans and some awesome welcome gifts! Thanks again - and Darrel, hopefully we catch you next time!

Darrel’s property is lovely little bungalow tucked away miles outside of Kansas City. We loved our stay here. Although we came in too late for fishing in the pond, we enjoyed a walk around the property and even saw a couple of deers running through! Darrel was a gracious host and extremely helpful. We will be back!
