...but the bathrooms were seriously gross and have a real prison-y vibe. The sign on the door proclaimed that “they’re only as clean as the last person who used them,” so clearly the last person to use them came in with a bucket or two of black mold that they felt like slinging on the walls.

If you arrive late in the season and want to camp in the Kaw area (the furthest of the campgrounds), the bathrooms here are closed and you’ll have to schlep over to Kanza or Cheyenne to experience the above. I turned tail and went back to shower in the van.

Primitive sites are only 10 bucks and if I’d been in one of those, I wouldn’t have minded so much. Pricing for the different sites feels unnecessarily convoluted and you do have to pay the $5 vehicle entry fee in addition; I was glad I took a photo of the entry board so I could reference it as I drove around.

The air smells sweet and it’s very quiet at night. The sites are pretty well spaced and have lots of mature trees. Sunset on the lake is beautiful!

Well maintained and clean, with lots of amenities!

Sites range from concrete pads, gravel, or grass! Sites offer electric and water, electric only, or dry camping! Electric includes 20, 30, and 50 Amp services! Also, sites have picnic tables and fire rings!

A bonus is that both Cheyenne and Kanza loops have WIFI that works well!

Campground is Big Rig friendly and has tent camping areas!

There are two dump stations with potable water available, within the Campground!

Activities including biking, hiking, boating, fishing, and wildlife watching! Park and lake appear to be on a migratory route for White Pelicans! Hundreds of these birds were here during our stay! Saw them arriving from the North and departing to the South!

Had 4 Bars Verizon LTE.

Unable to pickup any over the TV, but streamed TV and Videos with the excellent WIFI.

Nearby things to see include the World’s Largest Ball of Twine and the Geographic Center of the 48 States!

Will stay again!
