Great place to stay as we made our way west. Scenic lakeside spot. Bathhouse wasn’t open but we did not expect it to be in early Feb. Would stop again
This little RV park is a perfect no frills stop while driving through Kansas with easy access off I70. There are some sites on the small lake adjacent to the property that are surrounded by beautiful trees. We were able to grab one of these in November during the week. There are spots across the street as well, but that is more of a parking lot looking situation. Water and Electric hookups are available. However, we read they shut the water off in December so be sure to fill up your tank when that of year. We were able to ride our bikes into the little town to grab a tasty breakfast at a diner before we packed up. I would recommend this campground for a restful over night stay. *We travel in a 37 foot 5th wheel for reference
NIce location, the lake is great with a new pier. Get there early for a lakeside spot. Nice breakfast at Gigi's in town too that is walkable from campground.
We arrived at 10 pm Sunday and got a space on the lake. Very well maintained campground. It’s not truly a destination, but for a night during travel it’s great. The sites are pull-thru with 30 amp and water. There is a dump site there, too. We would definitely stop there again. Really cool little town, too. Beautiful architecture on the churches.
Great one or two night stop. This is a small campground that is first come first serve but there were plenty of spots open when we arrived on a Sunday. All sites are pull through. We took a lake front spot, with big trees for shade. We would stay here again!
I didn’t have high hopes for a city-run campground in the middle of Kansas. No reservations. Pay with cash in an envelope. 4th of July weekend. We decided to give it a try and we’re pleasantly surprised.
There are 15 or so sites along the lake (which seems more like a pond or a river) which had big shade trees covering them. Then another 10 or so sites behind that were in full sun. Many of the sites had power and water. Some sites shared the power with the neighboring site, and one of the two outlets for 30 amp was missing or broken.
But there were enough open spots we found one with shade and power and water. There is a dump station by the bathrooms. We checked out the bathrooms and they weren’t clean enough for us to want to use them, so it’s fortunate we have our own.
Some people fishing. Crazy fireworks being lit off in the park behind us. Someone doing donuts in their truck at 2 am. It probably would have been very quiet had it not been for the holiday weekend.
A good place to stop for the night as you trek across I-70.
Cute little creek with a dock. Has a bathroom / shower but wasn’t nice or very clean. We just stayed the night, but we enjoyed the creek and the huge trees. Wouldn’t stay for longer then a day.
We were on our way to Colorado and got to the point we couldnt drive anymore. We had our dog with us and had to stop. This was the closest campground around so we called. It was late and after their business hours they still got us in and helped us with getting set up quickly so we did not disturd other campers. This seems like mostly a RV camp ground but the family that owns it really went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Plus the bathrooms where clean and the water was hot. Absolutley no complaints. Would go again just to see these awsome owners.
Driving from east to west doesn't always support an exciting camping experience, but sometimes you just need a place to sleep. Ellis Lakeside was that for my journey. I am not a huge fan of sites right on top of each other, but if you are than you will enjoy Ellis Lakeside. It does sit right on the water edge, and has some pretty great water views. All in all if you are passing through KS and need a place to sleep, pull into Ellis Lakeside.
