Pretty good spot

I was surprised at a review of this park that seemed to suggest there was no facilities. This is a full setup park. Very clean. The camp sites vary greatly. Two loops offer all services including sewer and 50 amp. The best spots on the lake are rarely available. Last year it had some algae bloom issues mid summer.

No camping - picnic shelter and pit toilet only

There are 36 campsites available in Outlet Park. This side of the park only has a reservable picnic shelter and a pit toilet.

Tent campsites at Adam's Grove

The name of this site is Adam's Grove.

  • 30 tent sites with no hookups
  • $6 fee per site
  • Boat ramp

Adam's Grove does provide the closet boat ramp if you plan on picking up passengers off the beach near the dam (at Michigan Valley Park).

Small, quiet COE on the lake

This is a small park - 43 reservable sites with electric and water hookups. Most sites face the water and are shaded. They have fire pits and a covered cerment picnic table. Sites are fairly level and good size with a gravel pad. It is a very nice campground

Campground is a 3 orv area is a 5

The bathrooms were located by the camper areas and not the primitive area. Lots of room near the shelters for multiple tents. There was no management and they have a self pay system. We didn’t see a single park manager anywhere.

The orv area was amazing to take the jeeps out to! There’s trails, mudding areas, and areas called ledges for climbing. We will definitely be returning again!

Great campsite with minimal amenities

Camped at the Oak Campsite with some friends. Great place for those looking for a site away from the crowds with minimal amenities. Fresh water supply and clean bathrooms as well as a fire pit w/grill, charcoal grill and lantern pole made for a comfortable night. Careful around this site though, as most of the trees are black locust. I had to spend half an hour making the bottom 6 feet of the trees child proof for my friends 3 year old.

Great area in the middle of nowhere

This campground is on the northwest side of Clinton Lake.  All the activities one would associate with a lake like boat ramps, beach, hiking/biking trails, full hook-up sites, tent camping, playgrounds, etc.  The small town of Clinton is nearby and has a small store for items you may forget.  It's our go to when we go to Clinton Lake.

Primitive camping along Clinton Lake

This is a neat area if you're into some light hiking.  It has a loop trail starting at a parking area.  You can also tent camp at the trailhead.  It has a pit toilet and water access.  The trail is maybe 4-5 miles long and takes you up and down some slight grades.  There are numerous primitive campsites along the trail that are marked, or you can venture off to your own site within the area.  Many are directly up against the lake.  The marked sites are relatively cleared and many people have improved them by building benches, fire pits, etc.  My son and I had a great time the 2x we've been out here.

Kansas Corps of Engineers Canning Creek Lake

Clean, well maintained and patrolled. This campground has a beach and has great views of the lake. There's group sites, primitive sites and sites with electric, water and sewer hook ups. There's a marina store that covers basics and the town of Council Grove is 10 minutes away.

Great campground

Great camping. Large sites. Wonderful lake access. Bathrooms need some work. Automatic motion sensor lights, that you actually have to step into the dark to activate.

Tent camper

Lots of space and good fishing. Secure camping and clean on site bathroom facilities. Close enough to town for convenience but far enough away you get to see a lot of stars.

Beautiful Flint Hills lake

clean campground. good facilities. open space.

Right in the water sites. Amazing.

Great spot to fish swim or boat. Set up tent in the dark and woke up to an amazing view.

Lots of primative and camper sites. Big Field for playing.

It's good for kids because it has a field and a playground. Some primitive sites do NOT have a fire pit. Bathrooms are bug filled. Even the showers that close all the way. Some campers look like they live there.

Epic

Spent three days here this week. even with rain, it was a great camp ground. Corp of Engineers lake. Very clean, large private showers, with enough hot water. Daily trash pick up. Shade on most sites. Very helpful camp ground hosts. Saw 15 turkeys at the wild like area. Would have stayed longer, but more storms promised all night rain. Will return soon.

Perfect for fishing

Camped here many times. Even before had camper and was still tent camping. Great fishing not far. Boat ramp close. Have left boat in water on bank.

Right on water

Great campground. Made reservations to get spot right on water which is awesome. Nice quiet campgrounds.

Smaller campground on Milford Lake

They keep it pretty clean considering how busy it stays. The staff is really friendly. Sometimes it gets a little noisy in the evening due to a few of the more partying type campers but that is not too often.

Perfect little county campground

Beautiful gated lakeside campground in SE Topeka that can accommodate almost any camper type. There are pull through and back in sites. All are gravel with a picnic table and fire ring. The sites are fairly level and easy to navigate. There is a playground, picnic pavilion, swim beach, laundry, fishing dock and 2 clean bathhouses. The sites are close together, but most will have a view of the lake. There are 50 and 30 amp hook ups and water hook ups. No sewer, but there is a dump station on-site. Rental bikes are near the office to ride around the trail that goes 7 miles around the lake. The whole lake area has a lot going on: softball and baseball fields, multiple playgrounds, disc golf, golf course, tennis courts, paddle boat/canoe rentals, amazing gardens, etc. Several restaurants including fast food, pizza, donut shop, Chinese, 2 bar and grills, and Mexican food are very nearby. There is also a Dollar General, urgent care clinic, liquor store and 2 gas stations. It’s a great location just a few miles south of 1-70. Normally sites are $20/night, $18/night for seniors. Highly recommend!

Custer Campground north of Richey Cove

Primitive sites. Vault toilets, bbq, covered picnic tables and fire rings. 3 tents allowed per site. You can shower at the north Richey campground. All are close to the lake and there is a boat ramp at the entrance. Small campground with maybe 12 sites.

Great place to camp!

Really nice campground. Big RV spots with great views. The beach area was small but nice. There is a medium sized playground near the swimming area. There are horse pens located at the Eagle Ridge site. Eagle Ridge has full hook-ups. The only negative is that there were very few bathrooms and showers.

An amazing RV park

Just a wonderful RV park. Very pretty and clean property. Located next to a creek and ample space around your site. Clean bathrooms and showers. Fun little pool and awesome play area for kids. They have the property gate guarded at night which is another nice feature. If you have the opportunity to stay here, don't hesitate, it's worth it!

Equestrian sites. Water and showers, but not much shade!

Nice campgrounds for horse people, although there are hiking trails, as well. Water is available. Showers and toilets are nice. This is on the north end of Tuttle.
