Stayed 2 nights in early March. Lake View site #22, beautiful view from the lake's edge. Most sought after site. Was nearly all alone. Power and Electric hook-ups. Many hook-up options but no sewer. Did have a dump station. Roughly $20/night for premium site. Some spots are a little close together, but the lake views and otherwise open areas make up for it.
Cimarron National Grasslands,$7.00 per sites 10 sites(some are double sites so they call it 14 sites) all pads ar gravel, a couple are pretty level, all sites have fire ring, vaulted toilets, several water spigots according to Kansas worker they check the spigot monthly. Several Ponds some are stocked with trout in the winter a stamp is needed for the rainbow trout. During the summer they are stocked with catfish. 23 miles Santa Fe Trail are within the Parks boundaries. Bobwhite, and coyote, dear and other birds spotted through the Park. CAUTION: Before you get to site 1, there are 2 trees the one on the left has the scars to show the damage it has done to taller vehicles(we are 13.11 and just received a slight raspberry a couple layers of self leveling caullk and all is good for now!).
They have a great nature walking trail that is well mowed. Good for young kids. Go here to get away. There is no cell service unless. You drive up to the top of the dam. We camp behind the dam. It is quiet and has good patches of grass on most sites for tents. The showers and bathrooms are well maintained and always clean. I wanted to deduct a star for lack of swimming area at the lake but this isn’t really their fault; the drought has been rough. Bring baseball equip if you are staying a while, or frisbees. They have a frisbee golf course and lots of room for baseball or other sports.
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
