All the Comforts

This is a tiny (5 pull-thru slots) RV park run by the county in Montezuma, Kansas. Perfect for an overnight stay, it has 30 and 50 amp hookups, sewer and water. All for only $20/night. Each slot is a gravel drive with a concrete pad on the side that has a concrete picnic table. It’s right off KS-56, but we didn’t find it too noisy. I would definitely stay here again if passing by this way. Even has the added bonus of a small adjacent field where we were able to kite our paramotor wing for a bit.

Cottonwood Campground

Lake Meade has several campgrounds around the lake. All are por and have full hookups. You also need a permit for your vehicle. Here in the Dyrt only apear a few without the correct name, I tried to add the one I been but if you don’t add it while your camping then it’s late because the location will be shown where you are at the moment of adding it.

Nice and Clean

Park ranger drives around during the day, not crowded

Nice, clean park and friendly staff

Nice, no frills, rv park with friendly staff. Great place for a stop over. We stayed 2 nights after a 500 mile driving day. Gravel sites with grass surrounding the park. Approximately 30 or so full hookup spaces. Community room with restrooms, showers and laundry.

Nice overnight state park even if you’re not driving the dunes

Stayed for one night and I only can say good things about this place. Small Rv campground with 6 spots. The sand dunes are right there and nice to go for a small hike if you don’t want to ORV with your 4 wheeler. Self pay 20$ and good for the night. Water and electricity but no dumping station. Away from the main road enough so it gets quiet after dark

Clean Campground

Clean nice campground. Not much to do as the swim area is across the lake. Hiking and biking around the lake is good. Biting flies were terrible but after I broke out the fly swatter they learned I meant business!

First to Review
Simple, small city park.

It's not clear, when you enter the park, where you can park. After driving around the loop a few times, and observing others doing the same, we finally found a small RV parking sign close to the ground about 1-2 feet up from the ground by the large tree, on the east side of the park. We parked under that big tree. Another RV came in and just parked next to the loop on the east side of the park. It was free camping. Highway nearby we occasionally would hear trucks but usually sleep well inside our van so it wasn't a problem after we fell asleep. The bathroom was locked up. There is a dump station and potable water there, free as well. No electric hook ups. Very simple, small park. I would guess there's space for no more than 5-6 RVs but it's off the road a bit and not busy when we were there.

RVs only!!

Dunefield has lots of interesting plants. The main attraction is exploring them by dune buggy or 4 wheeler, which you can rent on-site.

Yay: simple campground with hot showers. Note that there are two areas to camp, one for RVs and one for tents, separated. This is the RV ONLY campground option.

Nay: Since there are so many motorized vehicles on the dunes, walking around them is not very fun (you can rent on site) and they may wake you up early in the morning. When we went about 5 years ago you had to provide your own helmets (bike helmets are ok). Campground is small and the paved (RV) spaces are extremely close together. Make reservations in summer.

Surprise: The dunes aren’t very tall compared to ones we’ve been to elsewhere, but riding through them and making little jumps is a lot of fun. Nice stargazing.

Off-Road sand dunes

Surprise: Oklahoma has sand dunes. You can rent a buggy, go hiking along them, or go fishing in a small stocked pond. The campground has showers, electric at some sites, flush toilets, and shade pavilions. Sites are close together. It is close to the dunes so if you plan to sleep in you will likely be woken up by sunrise dune buggies. Extensive trail system for hiking and buggies. If you’re used to dunes in Oregon etc. you may be disappointed by the size of this park, but it’s a great change of pace in OK.

There are two camping areas that have the same facilities but slightly different locations. This one is closer to the off-road access to the dunes. It has both RV and tents campsites. If your plans involve the dunes but you can't get a site at Pioneer campground, the Hackberry one is just a tiny bit further away.
