Hunters Gateway to the Sandhills

Enjoy this free, handsome campground year round. Enjoy the coyotes howling at night and the waterfowl on the still lake in the morning. Go fishing for slab crappie and hunt the sand hills for deer, and bobwhite quail! The restrooms and camp sites are very clean!

Surprisingly delightful

Plenty of primitive sites right along the lakeshore, well spaced and most shaded by cottonwood trees. No hookup, just a picnic table and a fire ring. Vault toilets. Stayed one night in our small rv on Columbus weekend in October. Not crowded, extremely quiet. Heard ducks and owls during the night. No fee!!

Simple but satisfactory

This was a perfectly fine campground. Very clean, well maintained. It is Kansas, so it’s very open, you wouldn’t have a lot of privacy if it was busier, although there are lots of short trees around the little lake. There is a bathroom, there’s water, a fire ring, and a picnic table. Easy to find, stop, and set up here. Not sure if there are more spots to camp around the lake, nothing seems to be marked. Someone else mentioned the grain silo not too far away…it is a bit loud but it almost felt like white noise or something, didn’t bother me.

A place to park

RV Park had your typical hookups. Its really just a parking lot behind a structure that has about a dozen spots available, adjacent to the highway. Privacy and quiet would not describe this RV park.

Noisy

As with many campgrounds in Kansas, this state fishing lake boasts camping without charge. There are five designated primitive tent spots with fire rings and tables. No RV spots, no electric, and no water. Two spots are at the entrance near the vault toilet and three spots are caddy corner on the back of the lake. You are responsible for removing your trash, the fields are well maintained, and of course you can fish. There are two docks and you can drop a boat in the small lake. There is a lot of noise from the working silos, railroad, and highways.

Not bad if you're a weary traveler

This really is a city park. One which boasts some really great park amenities- baseball diamonds, playgrounds, pool… There are four RV pads with electric hook up across from the baseball diamond, next to the restrooms. I really wouldn't recommend the campground for tents. There is no privacy and a housing community backs up the RV pads. The town seems pretty hip though, so if you are in town, explore the business district.

Nice and clean park next to the lake

There’s fire ring and picnic table. Next to the lake where you can go fishing. It’s a nice and quiet place. Except there’s a train railroad nearby which you can hear the train sometimes. There’re two places you can stay, one next to the park entrance and another is the opposite side of the lake.

I have camped here every year

The people are friendly and fishing is decent. Great scenery. Always clean. There is a rver near by. Awesome time at the kingman state fishing lake

Fine for a quick overnight

This is literally right off the road. And the sites are full hookups but little more than just a place to pull to sleep. There is WiFi and laundry area. The showers are clean and it was very reasonable.

Easy-peasy Indian Creek

fastest/easiest to navigate campsite within the red. large open plain, big enough to play various sports, let your dogs run around, sun bathe, etc. no set tent sites, which i like because there are plenty of places to set up a tent and be away from your neighbors although privacy is limited since it's essentially a large field near a creek. plenty of found wood for kindling. lots of trails along the creek for easy waking/hiking. not too far from the suspension bridge. this campsite has clear view of the sky's and no campground lights/ no light pollution. great for moon/star gazing. this is a great campsite for families, young and old, and perfect for an easy camping experience. probably not suited for those wanting a more primitive and forest heavy camping experience. i've camped here 4 times in the last five years and it has been nice to see the way the creek has shaped the land.
