“Nice, Quiet, and Convenient to I-70”

Reviewed Nov 24, 2017

Overall Rating

We discovered Sylvan Park campground while driving across Kansas, en-route to Colorado. There aren’t a ton of options in the late-fall/early-winter and this Army Corps of Engineers campground fit the bill nicely. It’s a bit of a hike (9-miles) off I-70, but completely worth it based on how nice the campsites were and how quiet the campground was. After dark, besides the occasional vehicle crossing the dam, the only sounds you could hear were the wind in the trees, a pack of Coyotes howling, and the hoots of a couple of owls. There were several LARGE and level pull-through sites that enabled us to stay hooked-up for our one night stay. In fact, our site was so big that we could have fit another 50+foot rig in it. We stayed in mid-November and the water and 50-amp site was $5 with our Access Pass ($10 normally during off-season). There were a few primitive sites (no water or electric) that were free (off-season). The bathhouse and showers were clean and well maintained. There is a very convenient dump station located near the entrance. We could only get 4G with AT&T. Verizon we had 2 bars of LTE. We will definitely stay here again next time we pass through the area.

“Great Campground 9 Miles from I-70 in Kansas”

We found this gem of a COE park on previous trips across the country and always plan to stay here when we're in the area. Wilson Lake is a large recreation area with 3 COE parks and a state park. We like the Sylvan Park COE campground that sits below the dam in a shady grove of trees. There are long, level pull-throughs with electric and water as well as back-in sites, some with full hookups. Site 13 is a back-in site with full hookups. The restrooms are clean with showers and the park is quiet. We paid $11 for the site with a senior park pass with no reservation fee through Recreation.gov. If you are there for more than one night, the eccentric town of Lucas to the north is a great place to visit. There you will find the "Garden of Eden" and "Bowl Plaza"!
