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!

Free!

GPS coordinates are for the entrance, drive down the dirt road and take first right or continue on for more sites. Lots of shade and fire pits bathroom however is at the second location further up the road. We were the only ones in the campground. There is a nearby shooting range which you can hear but closes in the evening and then all is quiet. There is a dumpster along the dirt road.

Dirt road passable in our 26 foot class C RV with some navigable ruts, may be worse in wet weather. There was quite a bit of bugs as well and an armadillo. 

AT&T and Verizon cell reception was adequate.

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.

Smarsh Creek Campground

Very nice shaded sites with water and electric hookup. It can be hot in the summer. Campground is clean and well run. Nice, level gravel pads.

At south loop #147

It's a nice site but the people that departed, after our check-in time, left a mudhole and dog poop everywhere. Don't think we will stay at this site again. The water hookups just make a mess

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.

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.

Nice surroundings beside the reservoir

We stayed on a Sunday night in early Summer on our road trip west. The lake was high due to flooding so we were moved the week before from our original booking at Hobie Beach. Really pleased with the primitive campsite we were at. Fire pit and picnic table was well maintained. On Sunday night the restrooms & showers were in need of a clean.

Nature trails are great for the kids. 

Bait shop just outside the park entrance was well stocked including ice.

Best place close to Wichita

Best place close to west Wichita. Several areas to choose From. Most with large camping spots. All with fire rings. Water and electric available with several dump stations.
