We picked a windy weekend to camp but found a good spot just steps from the lake shore. This was our second time to Council Grove lake but our first to this campground. Council Grove is a neat Midwest town. Nice shops, great coffee shop (Watts Coffee Co) and they just recently opened a brewery.
Cell coverage wasn’t great the first evening but during the day we consistently got 2 bars of LTE.

We were in a group of 4 spots but only two were filled so it was extremely quite (other than the wind). The check in was extremely smooth.

Canning creek campground is only one of six COE campgrounds around this lake quite near Council Grove, Kansas. In this campground all the campsites are on the lake shore. The sites are not squeezed and there is plenty of shade. Electricity and Water at the sites and a dump station at the campground.
There is an entrance booth. Our rate was $9.50 using our Golden Age card. We loved the campground.
