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.
