For no frills stop this is really great. Right on the water. We only saw one campsite and it was occupied.


This is a COE campground. Check in with the gate house if you don’t have a reservation. They will have you drive around to pick your site. Many sites are on the banks of the reservoir. Once you pick your site and drop your trailer or gear go back gate house to give them site number and pay. Toilets are flush and clean. Nothing fancy. You may stay up to 14 days and depending on your park pass site could be as low as $9.00. Sunsets are amazing and site is very quiet. Very good Verizon signal some data and tv reception. Stayed for three days. Warning on the shower. Just shower curtains. No locks. Push button turns the water on and it will run for a number of seconds then shut off. Starts off cold and becomes VERY hot. Can’t regulate. Plenty of hooks to hang clothes etc.

Wooded campground by the river!

Nice park along the river. Lots of big trees. I've not camped there, but thought it would be worth coming back to. Quaint small Swedish town. Worth visiting.

Hillsboro KS city campground

4 sites electric (20/30/50A) and water only back in only located in Memorial Park. To reserve or if you are arriving weekends or after M-F business hours call the city at  620 947 3162.  If you arrive and the electric boxes are locked you can call the city police to unlock it at 620 947 3440.  Self contained campers only, no sewage dump station.  Has bathrooms, flushable toilets but no showers.  Cost was $12.50  Nice quiet spot located in  a city park.  No drop box for payment,, just gave our money to the police officer as he patrolled the area.   If at all possible give the city a call to let them know your coming!

Clean, Level, All Paved, Easy Setup

Stopped here early in February 2021 for one night, on the way home to Missouri from Arizona. Needed a quiet place to get a nights sleep and drain the tanks before putting the RV back in storage for the rest of the winter. This campground met all our needs. Telephone reservations were a little confusing, otherwise a 5-Star.

This is a nice place!

We arrived after dark and the layout of the park is confusing in the dark. The next morning as we left we found the layout wasn't confusing at all! Lots of different camping spots, some concrete pads, some gravel. We had a gravel spot, almost perfect level, didn't have to do additional leveling. The showers and restrooms we're clean and well lit. Would definitely stay here again. We travel in a 26 foot class C

First to Review
Decent campground

Very few 50 amp site to choose from and no 50 amp sites with shade. Decent beach area with playground equipment for kids. The general store carries camping essentials, beer, and ice.

Great campground

Great campground really enjoy the large and shady sites. I also like how they put boat docks behind all of the lake side sites. The swim area is nice but often crowded on the weekends. This campground has both 50 and 30 amp sites. All of the 50 amp sites are on the inner loop and all of the lake side sites are 30 amp. The biggest con for this campground is that you have to share a water source with the campsites next to you.

Quick and easy

Quick, easy, and inexpensive stay right off the interstate. Water and electric on site and easy pull through parking spots. Clean bathroom and shower. Not very quiet considering the interstate is right next to it.

Right of interstate

Huge place with lots of permanent campers. Felt safe and comfortable. Site facilities were in good shape. Late arrival instructions very thorough.
