“Surprisingly nice campground”

Reviewed Apr 15, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here because we hadn't camped in Kansas and this was about the only thing I could find along our route. I really didn't expect much. Wow, was I surprised! We stayed in the Sunset Point section. The name describes one of its best features. The sunset over the lake was a highlight every day. There are also a number of great hiking trails of various difficulty levels.

When we arrived, no one was at the check station, so we we picked up a check-in card and drove straight to our reserved site. Note that there is a $5/day vehicle permit. This is reflected in my nightly rate ($21 site charge + $5 vehicle permit). Pay attention to site length. Some sites on the lake won't accommodate larger rigs or toads. The campground has clean electricity, good water and level sites. There is also a coin laundry in the campground ($1.50 wash, $1.00 dry). You can buy rolls of quarters at the camp office nearby. The campground has an 18 hole short game golf course and a Frisbee golf course. Fishing must be great, because there were fishermen everywhere. Verizon service was dependable.
