Great place to come to play and relax. Our first time here and my son and family second visit. great place to hide out from the rat race. cabin rental was next to the fishing pond and made our trip just beautiful and fun to stay. we will keep coming back!

We had a wonderful time! The jacuzzi suite was huge. We had plenty of supplies and the friendly staff were very helpful. The lake view from the deck area was beautiful, and it was a quiet and serene atmosphere.

Personally, I think that the people who wrote bad reviews were probable rowdy and/or drinking. They have quiet time from 10 PM until 6 AM. The rules are given to you before you go to your site or room. If you violate them, it is understandable that they would enforce them for the enjoyment of all guests. We were treated kindly and received excellent service.

I can't wait to go back again!

Held a family reunion here for a weekend and it would have been nice except for the terrible management. We had about 60 people here and rented over 12 cabins - it was an extremley hot weekend and some A/C's did not work. Reported that, but nothing was done as the "real mangers" apparently were not told. My 80 year old uncle requested a 1 night refund for the inconvience of not sleeping more than 4 hours for the weekend and was told that if he did not vacate the property immed. the sheriff would be called!!! These people def. need some training on how to deal with people! Every person in our party who went up to talk to the staff was treated rudely. If the corp. office ever see's this or bothers to read it, you need to make some changes. You now have 60 people that will tell 120 people who will tell more to NEVER GO THERE!

My family and I decided last minute to just get away for a couple of days. Saw Basswood on line and called Saturday am to see if i could get a tour of the park. Willow was very nice on the phone and said any time would be great except maybe Memorial day weekend. We went up that afternoon and ended up renting a 8 person cabin for Sat and Sun night. Pool was already open so we were able to swim which the kids loved. Kids loved the splash park and the play grounds. The cabin was great! Plenty of room for 8. Very very clean. The park is small enough so not to worry about the kids. The staff was great. The only complaint would be they need to replace some of the pool chairs as they are stained. Would definitely stay again in fact we will be there in June. Promised the grandkids we would go once a month. Great spot close to home to unwind!

This is a very nice getaway, close to shopping and civilization but far enough away to get a break. It is very clean and groomed grounds. It has the potential to be a great time but the poor management and rude employees could easily ruin a nice vacation. We stayed for 4 nights Sunday thru Thursday occupying 3 cabins and 2 rv spots with our extended family. The resort was full but not overpacked. The pool was a nice size and the kids liked the playground but the splash pad was not working the entire time and no one seemed to be working on it. It really did not look like it had been working in a long time. There were no activities or movies for the kids during the week and given the number of kids in the resort, a movie at the outdoor theatre would have been nice. Surprisingly the insects did not take over the resort at night or in the woods so hiking and sitting outside were possible.
The park is insistent on escorts to campsites and cabins which we only learned about when our 80+ year old grandmother drove her camper to her site without one she was yelled at by a very belligerent employee. Given there were no signs about the escort requirement, the dress down was way too harsh. She was very upset about it and it took her a while to calm down. I think rules are very important to running a resort but the enforcement needs to be a little more friendly. When the say the pool closes at 9:00 p.m. that means everyone needs to be out, the lights out. the door locked etc by 9:00 and it was not a friendly "pool is closing folks" it was a rude "Out, pool is closing." If you don't move fast enough you will get locked in. The fishing was fun, nothing spectacular but the kids liked catching and releasing. Several ponds are off limits so read the rules carefully. We did our best to obey the rules and avoid the red shirted employees and we managed to have a nice time. I just think that when you drive your golf car past an employee they should do more then scowl. I would have given them a 3 instead of a 2 but for one incident. We spent one day at Worlds of Fun and the older relatives stayed in camp. One came walking by our cabin to find 2 of the windows open without a screen and no one around. He investigated to find out that employees had decided to change out the air-conditioner and removed the old one and then went on break with the windows wide open and no one securing our possessions. We had secured everything in the cabin only to have it unsecured by the employees. We had no notice that they were entering our cabin and leaving it unsecured. Thankfully, he stayed around to make sure our things were safe and find out what happened. Had he not been there to secure our things our vacation could have been ruined.

Basswood is a great family RV destination. Bring all your own food and drinks and firewood and don't forget your poles and bait. I almost hate to write a great review of the place because I don't want it to be booked up all the time. There is a nice pool and spray ground, 2 play grounds, walking trails, several stocked fishing ponds. Clean bathrooms and showers. It is a great place to get reconnected with your family and unconnected from TV,video games etc. The biggest downfall to this place is the airport located very near by, planes fly low overhead every 5 minutes, but after a while we forgot to notice them.The people camping there are very friendly, alot of them live in the surrounding areas of Kansas CIty. My kids had a great time and we are going back soon. It was the most relaxing weekend I had all summer. Also all the kids ride there bikes so if you have kids don't forget to bring their bikes.

Very convenient property. My kids had a great time. The fishing was great, especially early in the mornings. Pool and Water Park were perfect for the kids (I could see how some cranky old timers might not appreciate). They have spent alot of time and money keeping the place nice. The staff was great. We rented golf carts ($45/day) and my kids went bonkers for all of the trails available, very fun. It would be tough to manage a place like that trying to keep it fun for kids, and at the same time trying to keep a bunch of old people comfortable!

Great Job Basswood!
