Nice for a quick stopover

Nice and clean. Full hookups. Lacking some amenities but it’s definitely a nice stay when passing through.

Great place

Our first trip there was great! You are not able to make reservations BUT we set up a day early and had some great campsites! We were parked right on the water. They have concrete slabs with a great picnic table for each site. There is no sewer and 50 amp service is only on one side. We will definitely be spending more time here in the future!!!

Quiet fishing river with campground

Quite, picnic area, handicap accessible, boat ramp, playground, shaded, can fish both sides by standing on the bank, grassy areas, plenty of parking.

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.

Post flooding, still a decent place to hammock camp

We stayed in the “Basic Camping” area #50 Beautiful views of the lake and plenty of trees to setup a hammock or two. We had some noisy neighbors, and for some reason the hogs (noisy motorcycles) were popular late into the night whilst trying to fall asleep.

Nice quiet campground

We have stayed there about 6 times. Very quiet. Needs some renovations. Sites are not level and need either more gravel or concrete. Most of the sites are 30 amp and no dump station. Water and electric only.

Big rigs at some of the sites will have a problem. Renember this is a old campground. Fishing from the shore is great no boats. Adult children ( seniors) lol are there every day looking to catch dinner.

Fort Scott lake

Fort Scott Lake lake is tent camping only no animenities. ( no water, electric or bathrooms)

A good waypoint stay in Southeast Kansas

Kamp Siesta is an establish campground in shade trees located adjacent to the fairgrounds and city park. The park is very nice and suitable for walking or biking and is on a bluff that overlooks the  Neosho River. The park includes a swimming pool, tennis courts, pavilions, and playgrounds. Amenities such as gas stations, hardware store, restaurants and groceries are all with a mile or two of the campground and well separated from them by quite neighborhoods.  While there is not a lot to do in Oswego itself, it is close to strip pits east of town  left over from coal mining that are good for fishing and there is a nice 9 hole golf course just west of town. There is also fishing down on the river. This river is known for it's large catfish.   The park is easy to access from the highway and plenty of room to maneuver larger rigs. I grew up in this area and know it well. The campground is quiet and well patrolled and at $10 a night it a cheap but relaxing place to stop and unwind. 

I believe it is open year round.

Very Nice Campground by the Neosho River

We have stayed here 3 times now as it is close to family. This is a very nice well maintained city park with campsites. It sits along the Neosho River but us elevated enough that it doesn’t flood. The electrical is recently updated with 50 and 30 amp service and last year the city installed a new bath house. There is a playground, pavilion and a ball field all within the park and the sites are generously spaced apart. Free WiFi is also provided. It’s a great deal at $15 a night.
