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)
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.
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.
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.

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
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
