Overnighting in the Kansas City area

This summer a group of us are heading out to see Yellowstone and the surrounding area. We are looking for a place (Wally World, FJ, etc) to overnight in the Kansas City area while in route, we will be coming in on I-70 heading toward I-29 north. We would like to stay on the eastside/northside of KC if possible. Anybody have any suggestions on a good place, or any warnings about bad places..

Go North on I-435 from I-70; after you cross the MO river; 3rd Exit, Parvin Road exit; Worlds of Fun has a very nice park, concrete pads.

A little further north on 435 between I-29 and I-35 is another more remote nice campground called Basswood Resort, Basswood Resort * Platte City, MO at Platte City, MO.

These are the two best in that part of town.

If you don't want a campground, I-435 and 210 Highway(2nd Exit north of MO River), just East about 2 miles is Ameristar casino ( I would call to verify they allow overnight RV parking). Watch your speed through Randolph, speed trap and only 45 mph. Barney Fife is alive and well. Nice Shell Truck stop with competitive priced Diesel fuel across the street of casino to the North.

I have stayed at that Ameristar Casino on my way to Custer, we parked with the big trucks. No problem at all (if the noise doesn't bother you). There is a rest areas east of KC around the 58 MM on I-70 (maybe too far east for you) and a rest area north of KC on I-29 just north of the 25 MM. Missouri does allow overnighting in rest areas.

Thanks for all of the replies...I should have mentioned that we will be leaving the casino in Charleston, WV that morning headed toward KC and we will be covering about 780 miles that day, so camp grounds are not really an option. I hate getting into camp grounds late at night. The rest area, and truck stop sounds promising, and of course any Wally World that we come across that will let us stay.

On the West side of town, KC, KS (so you won't have traffic in the AM), just off of I70 Via 435W is Cabela's with plenty of space. Just look up their addy and plug it in to your GPS. They have horse stalls and dog pens too...lots to do in the immediate area for restaurants, etc.

KC places

I used to live there. If you are arriving from I70 westbound at the intersection of I435 and I70 there are a few parking lots you might try. If you take the cloverleaf (rt exit) and go south 1/2 mi there is a huge Bass Pro, Costco and Home Depot. If you exit right before the cloverleaf (go north) there is Independence Mall. About 15 mi east of KC in Grain Valley are Flying J and TA truck stops. Just a little east of that is an "outlet mall" that fizzled and has a huge empty parking lot. If you go thru KC it's a long way west until you hit a suitable truck stop or big lot....probably to Topeka.

About 3 mi south of I70 & I435 is a county campground that is real nice called Blue Springs Lake CG if you decide to use a campground.

The exit Hogdriver is referencing I think is MO 291 and I-70, not 435 and I-70. That would be a good option if you don't want to get started before 8:30 am. If you do, I would head north on MO 291 to MO 210 West so you are going against the morning traffic. MO 210 you can take I-435 North and it will take you to I-29 North north of the city.

If you are coming from the east I would get North of I-70 if you want an early start (before 8:30 am) as I-70 Westbound will be a traffic nightmare.

Cabela's is a great option but about 30 miles west of were you need to go north.

I would not stop on I-435 North in MO until I was north of the MO River, which Ameristar is the first place for that, very Industrial area. There is a small Flying J 1 mile south of the MO River, very crowded, for me it would be easier to go to Ameristar 2 miles up the road. Good luck.

We definitely will be rolling long before 8:30 am...Plans are to be wheels rolling by 6 am. We are leaving Roanoke on Thursday at 6:00 pm and we need to be in Victor, ID by Sunday evening so we will be burning some diesel... We will be staying at the Teton Valley RV Park... Anybody know of any pro's/con's to this RV park?
