What could be more fun than a family campout?
Whether you are an experienced camper or just looking for an activity to share with your family and friends, this is your opportunity to sleep under the stars in the safety of one of the most beautiful and spacious parks in Johnson County.

The Shawnee Mission Park Great American Campout
In addition to spending a night under the stars in Shawnee Mission Park, our lucky campers will receive passes for admittance to the Shawnee Mission Park Beach, Pedal Boat Rental and tickets to the The Theatre in the Park's production of “Annie Warbucks”. And as a special bonus, you will receive early admittance to the show.
