Welcome to AOK

Marc and Christine Siemers, AOK Campground and RV Park

May 27th, 2023

Wow! Can you believe that it has already been one year since we took over the AOK Campground & RV Park? When we say that this year was a crazy year with ups and downs, believe us.. It definitely was. Taking over the campground with no previous campground working experience was definitely a challenge, but we managed it. While taking over during camping peak season we decided to add some upgrades to the campground. First thing on our list was the renovation of the campground office. The shed house was just too small and definitely not made for tall people. So we decided to take the office, and move it up to the main house. The office is now way bigger and also is equipped with some souvenirs. During the winter we spent a lot of time making T-Shirts, Key Chains, Magnets, Koozies, Cutting Boards, etc. You ask for it, we have it! 

The second thing that was on our list was the addition of a dog park. Christine took care of this project. Marc was a little shocked when he realized that the dog park is 5 times bigger than the pool. Nevertheless, our campers love it! But even more than the campers love it are the dogs! 

In September we came across a company in Topeka that builds fully insulated and equipped Western Covered Wagons. Since we know that Saint Joseph is full of history, we wanted to bring a little history to the campground. As of September 2022 you can book your stay in the Western Covered Wagon Airbnb. The outside area including the fireplace, dining area, etc. was all built by us with the help of our lovely long term campers. If we have learned one thing here, we love our long term campers. We spent time together at the bonfire, had weekly cookouts and talked about our daily adventures. 

If you check in our office, you probably will have noticed that we also added another member to our family. While our little Emmie is still the campground dog that loves to ride Golf Cart, she now has to share the office and her seat with Dakota our Saint Bernard. Dakota loves spending time in the office and loves to greet our campers. 

Lastly, we also wanted to say thank you to our long-term campers and our short term campers. We look forward to making this summer a unique and wonderful experience again!

Hello everyone, Hallo ihr Lieben, Hola a todos, Bonjour a tous, and Hallo mijn lieverds!

After some busy stressful weeks at the AOK Campground and RV Park, we finally would like to introduce ourselves.

We, Marc and Christine, and our children Lena and Lukas, are a native German family, with international living and camping experience, who took the adventure to the next level and can proudly say that we are the new owners of the campground.

During the past 20 years we have lived in various countries including Germany, France, and the United States. After living 7 years in Mobile, Alabama we now reside at the AOK Campground in Saint Joseph, Missouri.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to the AOK Campground and RV Park. Our campground offers an incredible experience for everyone. From young to old and from a day pass to overnight stay to a long-term site.

We speak multiple languages including English, German, French, Spanish, and Dutch to simplify communication with everyone!

If you’re interested in reserving a campsite, tent site or if you’re trying to spend the day at the AOK Campground, you can give us a call at 816-324-4263 or send us an email to aokexit53@gmail.com

Another Happy Camper

My Grandson & I stayed the evening of 6-20 at your campground en route home from a somewhat long road trip. I began the trip June 4 and spent a total of 17 nights on the road. In that time, I stayed at a number of campgrounds, to include 4 “resorts” booked by membership in Coast to Coast and 2 KOA campgrounds. Other than C to C, all were Good Sam sites or KOA. Your Campground was the cleanest of all; had the most room of any; and, your staff was the most efficient and courteous. Had we the time, both I and my grandson would have liked to stayed several more days simply to relax and enjoy the area.

You have the best of all the facilities at which I (we) stayed. Keep up the good work.

Best Regards, DAVE WALKER
