This recreation area is part of Pomona Lake
Quick drive from KC, Pamona State Park is an alright spot! Staff is super friendly, the marina is cool to show the kid, and if we had a boat it’d make it even better.
I recommend staying at a loop as far from the marina as possible, and get an interior spot. Vehicles were driving by all night!
We were in the Heart Stays loop. It was level and beautifully shaded. Thursday night we were the only ones in the loop, however it was near the boat ramps and there was a lot of vehicle traffic all the time. Friday night the campground filled up. There was even more traffic. One large group was very loud until 4:00 am. It is a primitive campground and, I imagine, one of the older ones in the park. The park brochure shows the campground as having a modern toilet, which was a pit toilet. I doubt we’ll go back because of all the noise.
Every time you come you're greeted at the gate by exceptionally friendly staff. Once in, all sites are clean and well taken care of. There are a large amount of sites right on the water but make sure to bring aftermarket stakes to get into the ground (mainly rock). We camp with our 3 dogs each time and never put them on a leash. Rangers informed us as long as they stay in your site, they're not strict about it. These Rangers are around for your safety, not to ruin anyone's fun. We've been about 8 times since April and it's our favorite spot hands down!
