Trail running and romantic sunsets

The main trail is composed of a gravel camping road that encircles the man made lake. The road is bike and vehicle friendly, though it seems only park vehicles are allowed. Several trails offshoot from this main road, each is marked for either hiking (trail running), mountain biking, or camping. Theres several large camping sites, and both the bike and hike routes seem to be loops that end back at the starting offshoot on the main road. None of the hikes are very difficult, most are easy/moderate and support running. They are very easy for hiking. Some bike routes are more difficult. Half are in woods with trees as low as 5ft over the trail, the other half go through open fields. Since there are many different routes to take, its easy to increase or decrease the distance. I had no trouble clearing four miles by running out, doing a trail (full loop) and running back. The loops aren't always possible to cut, so keep in mind that its sometimes hard to tell how far along a loop you are. Note that few of these trails have views of the lake; only the campgrounds, bench sites, and main trail/road are unobstructed to the water. There are several beautiful views of the small damn and the broken sections that create a little waterfall. The sunset in particular was really peaceful and easy to watch from the benches (perfect for a romantic picnic).

Ok for Stopover

Very small campground. No frills here but shower house was clean. We were arriving around 7 pm and no other campground would answer their phones. The owner met us and helped us get into our spots after dark. Close to the highway but it was very quiet.

Leave no trace

Let’s keep this lake and all other lakes and parks clean. Pick up after yourselves. Practice “leave no trace” leave the area Better than you found it, for the next person can enjoy.

Small, but nice campground.

Nice KOA campground. A little further than we wanted to be from Wichita, but not their fault. Clean, friendly employees. Would stay here again.

Nice place

Nice place to camp or spend the day. Just wish people would practice leave no trace, pick up after yourself.

Good fishing

It has a waterfall feature.

Family friendly. Easy water access. Close to 400 Hwy. Good hiking trails.

After being closed for over two months the campsites are back open for use.  There is still a lot of clean up being done, but should not stop anyone from camping.  Shower houses are clean and have hot water.  There are several hiking trails.  Fall will be a great time to camp at Fall River State Park.

Chase county fishing lake

Nice little lake with free camp sites

Camping and reunion spot

It’s a nice quiet little park to camp at and have reunions right in the little town of Oxford with electric and water only. Nice bathroom/ shower house. Two pavilions, playground, freebie golf and basketball ball court.

Nice little lake

It’s a small lake but big enough to go fishing and do your boating fun on like skiing , tubing and etc. There is camping around the lake with RV hookups in spots around the lake. A few full hookups, water & electric hookups and many just electric spots.
