“Great Park”
Review of Fleming Park

Fleming Park
Ranked #17 of 46 things to do in Independence
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 March 2017

There is so much to do at Fleming Park and Lake Jacomo. We enjoy hiking on the many trails but wished they were better marked. We also keep our pontoon boat onthe lake and it is a very relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Great place for walking, hiking, biking or just relaxing. Saw a bald eagle and mate flying in search of food.

We like full hook up and those sites are limited. Some sites not very level for longer rigs. The space between sites was good which allowed some privacy. The sewer connection was elevated so drainage was difficult. All in all we like it here and will return in the future.

We stayed at blue springs lake for two fourteen day periods. Most sites are great. A couple are not ideal due to close proximity to neighbor camp sites and not being level. Park has excellent playgrounds and my grandkids had lots of friends on the weekends. The park allowed us an extension for one 14 day period but the rule is stays are limited to 14 days. That's too bad because we would love to come back for the summer. Staff were nice. Park frequently rounded by Rangers and police. Felt very safe.

Fleming Park is one of Jackson County's premier parks. It has numerous activity areas, two lakes (Lake Jacomo and Blue Springs Lake), a couple of marinas, picnic areas (can be rented out for groups, too), a beach, boating, sail boating (on Lake Jacomo) fishing, and more. Blue Springs Lake allows higher horsepower boats and jet skis while Jacomo is primarily for pontoon boats, sailboats, and small horsepower fishing boats, kayaks, etc. The beach is at Blue Springs Lake. Swimming from shore is not permitted at Lake Jacomo.

There is a camping area for both tent and vehicle camping. I've not used it, so check out some of the other reviews for those details.

There is also a group camping area for scouts, youth groups, etc. It's available only by advance reservation.

There is a native hoofed animal enclosure where the buffalo roam and elks play. Bring along some carrots and let the kids feed the buffalo through the fence and don't forget your camera.

If history is your thing, make a stop at Missouri Town 1855 and check out the recreated 1850's village complete with a blacksmith and more. Check the schedule for some of the weekend activities that are planned throughout the year.

There are lots of hiking trails, running paths, and other areas to enjoy the fresh air without having to drive half way across the country. Sometimes it's nice to just drive through the park and enjoy the scenery and the wildlife.
