I wish I could give this place negative stars. 😑 First and foremost you cannot arrive after hours without a reservation and by creating an account. Then upon paying for your site, which only has electric by the way, you also have to purchase a $9 parking pass. We had to purchase one for our RV AND one for our car. Camp hosts are nonexistent. The facilities were FILTHY ! One shower open that YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR. $1 in quarters got me 2 mins and upon shooting out freezing water without warning , it took over a minute to get warm so then I had under 60 seconds to do a quick wash. Mind you- I typically boon-dock and off grid camp but figured I would splurge and hook up for the night ( traveling across country) and use a facilities shower. The floor was filthy and there were excrements left not only in the toilet but also on the seat. I’m just really bummed out.. would not recommend. On the plus side, I had a gorgeous balled Eagle fly right over head that left me in awe. And the sunrise was very beautiful.
Initially made reservations at the point campground. There is NO shade. Cancelled and remade for Lake Hasty campground. Had a good time. Visited in spring, but it was HOT!! Very glad to have had the shade. Lots of owls. Lots of birds to watch. Bathrooms were a bit of a walk, but we were right next to the playground. Did some fishing, had a muskrat steal our fish. Lots of rattlesnakes. Also learned that rattlesnakes can swim. Easy drive to Bent's Old Fort which was great. Overall, nice but factor in weather when making reservations.
Great small campground / rec area. It was clearly very popular among hunters/fishermen during season as we were the only campers there that were not hunting or fishing. It’s a day use area, too. There’s only vault toilets but there is drinking water available. No power or dump stations, but generators were welcome for the RV folks. Fires are allowed when there are no active fire restrictions and they have great fire pit rings. Pay attention to fire restrictions on the USDA campground site. No fire wood for sale, so bring your own. The sites are first come first serve since they’re non-reservable according to the USDA website. I had heard there were great trails on the grasslands but it was hunting season when we were there so I recommend researching that first before coming here and expecting to hike safely. The grounds are kept decently well. There’s no camp host but when we were there all the other campers were very quiet / chill. In fact we were alone on the whole grounds until the hunters rolled in for the evening. The sunset & sunrise were gorgeous here. It’s buggy of course because you’re in the grasslands and near ponds, so be prepared for insects as well. We heard a pack of animals loudly roll through in the night, pretty sure they were coyotes. Trash cans available, and great picnic tables available.
All in all, this was a wonderful site and we’re glad we made the drive. It’s a lovely campground with the grasslands’ nature surrounding you on all sides. We camped in a Roof Top Tent (RTT) and the lot was level, decently private. We camped in #6. People clearly like to spread out here when it’s not crowded, that was nice.
Word to the wise: if you’re traveling here on Stevens County roads with gravel and 65mph speeds, sloooooow down and get off to the side as people approach you from the opposite direction. Those “Stevens Co not responsible for broken windshields” signs are there for a reason.

We come to this reservoir all the time! They do a have a boat ramp and a few “beaches” to set up at if you want. But it’s covered in bugs. I know I know, that’s what camping is about BUT they are just annoying! Takes me a good hour after each trip to vacuum they all up out of the camper after each trip!
Very large open gravel and prairie area. Long drive from there entrance to sites on gravel roads. Sites near water are still about 100-200 yards from the water. Lots of wind, no trees. The basic sites have a table, grill, parking pad, and tent pad, all on gravel. The area is very large so getting to the bathroom is a hike. Requires reservation plus a park pass you can buy at an automated kiosk. Access to site is via the visitor center boat inspection area which has the self serve kiosk. Overall the site is fine, and when I went on a weekday in July there was only one other camper in the whole area - right next to me. The water is pretty but that's probably where others will camp just FYI.
We stayed here twice last Summer on our cross country adventure. Nice shady spots and great bike riding opportunities.
Cimarron National Grasslands,$7.00 per sites 10 sites(some are double sites so they call it 14 sites) all pads ar gravel, a couple are pretty level, all sites have fire ring, vaulted toilets, several water spigots according to Kansas worker they check the spigot monthly. Several Ponds some are stocked with trout in the winter a stamp is needed for the rainbow trout. During the summer they are stocked with catfish. 23 miles Santa Fe Trail are within the Parks boundaries. Bobwhite, and coyote, dear and other birds spotted through the Park. CAUTION: Before you get to site 1, there are 2 trees the one on the left has the scars to show the damage it has done to taller vehicles(we are 13.11 and just received a slight raspberry a couple layers of self leveling caullk and all is good for now!).
