Beautiful place with low rates

Lakeside camping with a view

Spots are first come first serve. Arrived on a Friday morning mid-June and there was only one site taken. This is a wonderful campground if you’re into star gazing as there is zero light pollution. Pros: No light pollution No loud parties Ample wildlife Camp within feet of the water Gorgeous views

Cons: One restroom facility (not horribly bad as this is a very small lake)

fun lake

the camping is like most in the area.  bathrooms, hooks-up, everything you would expect.  The lake is fun and has some good fishing as well as some good coves for kayaking.

what you would expect

like most state lakes here in KS, it's kept well with good facilities and close enough to towns for any needs.  Good fishing and great times.

scouting trip

Spend three nights with the cub scouts on this lake.  We had lots of success with fishing and the kids really enjoyed some of the hiking trails.

Like trains?

Friendly and helpful owners with basic/average facilities. A freight line runs next to the property (about 100 yards from our site). Convenient location easy off/on I70, but almost no gas/food options at this exit (333). Firewood and food delivery to the site a plus.

Peaceful and Relaxing

This Campground is quiet and serene. The management are very friendly and accommodating. The campground has peaceful creekside sites as well as easy to use pull through sites for the larger RV's. There are plenty of areas for kids and animals to play. If you want the office cooks meals or pizza so you dont have to find a store or restaurant. The Campground is conveniently located just off the interstate and close to several wineries and antique shops.

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.

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

Shady lakeside camping

plenty of campsites of all kinds. Tent sites,electric only,water and electric and full hookups. Boat launches close to most sites. No marina on the lake but just 5 miles to 2 towns with services. Lots of shade. Restrooms/ showers are clean.

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.

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.

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 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.

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!

Jus passin thru

We stayed here on a passing thru option so didnt get the full flavor. The beach area seemed a bit un kept. We decided it may have been due to storms that had passed through a week before. Really need to give it a better look.

The showers were very clean and accomodating. The grounds were mowed and there was awesome shade throughout.

Little known secret

Turkey Point is on the North side of Melvern lake. We have been going to this campground for about 10 years. The camp hosts have always been very accomodating. WELL MAINTAINED and facilities are very clean. Most of the sites are not real close to one another and some are right on the water. Plenty of primitive spots are on the bank.

I highly recommend Turkey Point.

Best Business Trip Ever

obviously a vacation/destination town has to have decent people working in it, or it might not survive. perhaps the scenery and the relative geographic ease to get here make it such that the people wouldn't have to try that hard, but they do anyway. attributable to the hiring of h/s students, of a trip that was otherwise filled with delightful accommodating people. i cannot wait to return next year and to attend other events as well. it helped me share and promote my local guest posting business with people there. and it helped me promote my business and get fruitful results.

A place

We are here for a while. I wish they have monthly prices or lower weekly. Not bad for over night stop or a. Few days but not longer. Lol clean park and everyone is friendly just kinda pricey.

Improving every time we go

We like to go to this location a few times each year especially for the 2 big holidays! The new owners are improving it each time we go! Very pleased!
