Nice Oasis

Stopped at this nice out of the way campground en route to Minneapolis. Nice sites and price (only $5 for tent). Squeaky is really doing a good job keeping things clean and maintained!

A small oasis

You wouldn’t believe it when you’re approaching it, since it seems near a road and behind the train tracks, and it seems to be near a refinery. But this 16-site, city-run park and campground is the kind of place I had been hoping to run across on my long drive. It has shady spots in an area where shade is a rarity. It’s a little protected by its location near the river, which is great.

It has hot showers and flush toilets, and did I mention hot water? There are park facilities like a play structure and lots of green grass. And it’s clean! At this writing, the fee ranges from $5 to $15 per night.

The site manager was extremely helpful and pleasant. It was worth calling ahead to let him know I was coming. (620) 626-0531

Secluded, peaceful

Had a great time camping here in early spring. Although the night was chilly & windy, this grassland provided us a comfortable place to sleep and a very peaceful night.

Small park

Great place to stay. Right by Bentwood golf course

Concrete pads and picnic tables

No fishing or swimming

Walking path

In small town with access to gas and groceries

As you can see in the video not much to it

Just passing thru

Small rv park great for just passing thru

Not in outdoorsy location. Right next to highway. More of a place to stop over than a campground. Clean and well managed. Friendly staff and townspeople. Great Mexican food nearby.

Small but nice ponds

Not very many spots but nice fishing at small ponds. One pond has ADA access

Small playground nearby

Hiking on flat ground

Nice when nearby Cimarron River is running

Historical sites nearby.

No store at location but access to gas groceries etc. In nearby Elkhart

Unexpected Beauty

The Cimarron Grassland is an amazing part of the Great Plains ecosystem and definitely worth a look when driving through the southwest corner of Kansas. It will not be what you’re expecting! The sunrises alone are worth the price of admission, which was just $7 per night.

Just off the park driving tour road, this little campground sits between small ponds in a larger wetland area within the Cimarron River. Each site is spacious with the usual picnic table, fire ring, and tent pad. Vault toilets and potable drinking water are available all year round, we just had to wait for the faucet to thaw after freezing up overnight.

The area is fantastic for bird lovers, and we watched flocks of Starlings tuck themselves into the marsh grasses for the night. Raptors, warblers, and many other bird species use the area as a fly-over stop during migration. Hiking is close by on the Sante Fe Trail which follows the original path of the old wagon trail through the plains, biking and other motorized recreational vehicles are allowed in certain areas. While the terrain might not be challenging, the sandy soil makes any long walk or ride just a little bit more difficult.

The nearby town of Elkhart affords the usual amenities for groceries, gas, and a few restaurants. The National Grassland office is also in town if you want more information about the area. Check out our blog about our time traveling through southern Kansas…and unexpected treat!

Beauty if the plains
