Small, quiet COE on the lake

This is a small park - 43 reservable sites with electric and water hookups. Most sites face the water and are shaded. They have fire pits and a covered cerment picnic table. Sites are fairly level and good size with a gravel pad. It is a very nice campground

Campground is a 3 orv area is a 5

The bathrooms were located by the camper areas and not the primitive area. Lots of room near the shelters for multiple tents. There was no management and they have a self pay system. We didn’t see a single park manager anywhere.

The orv area was amazing to take the jeeps out to! There’s trails, mudding areas, and areas called ledges for climbing. We will definitely be returning again!

Kansas Corps of Engineers Canning Creek Lake

Clean, well maintained and patrolled. This campground has a beach and has great views of the lake. There's group sites, primitive sites and sites with electric, water and sewer hook ups. There's a marina store that covers basics and the town of Council Grove is 10 minutes away.

Right in the water sites. Amazing.

Great spot to fish swim or boat. Set up tent in the dark and woke up to an amazing view.

Epic

Spent three days here this week. even with rain, it was a great camp ground. Corp of Engineers lake. Very clean, large private showers, with enough hot water. Daily trash pick up. Shade on most sites. Very helpful camp ground hosts. Saw 15 turkeys at the wild like area. Would have stayed longer, but more storms promised all night rain. Will return soon.

Smaller campground on Milford Lake

They keep it pretty clean considering how busy it stays. The staff is really friendly. Sometimes it gets a little noisy in the evening due to a few of the more partying type campers but that is not too often.

Sleepy Little Town

This might be the metropolis of this area but when the Walmart in town closes at midnight you know it is a sleepy little town. With that said it was nice to find this site to lay my head in the sleepy town.

The sites were level and pretty typical of a KOA. The staff was very nice and accommodating and walked me over to my tent site when I arrived. Very nice touch!

The bathrooms here were warm on a cold night and very clean. You could tell they take care of this facility very well. I had missed the pool season but with the cool air I didn't mind missing the cold water I was just wanting to stay warm.

For a basic site which included a fire ring and picnic table it was $24 that included access to wifi.

The only negative to getting a primitive site was that it was pretty windy and there wasn't really any wind block, I could have sprung for an upgraded site had I have realized there was going to be so much wind but that is my fault not theirs.

Custer Campground north of Richey Cove

Primitive sites. Vault toilets, bbq, covered picnic tables and fire rings. 3 tents allowed per site. You can shower at the north Richey campground. All are close to the lake and there is a boat ramp at the entrance. Small campground with maybe 12 sites.

Great place to camp!

Really nice campground. Big RV spots with great views. The beach area was small but nice. There is a medium sized playground near the swimming area. There are horse pens located at the Eagle Ridge site. Eagle Ridge has full hook-ups. The only negative is that there were very few bathrooms and showers.

Normal KOA Campground. Very friendly helpful staff. Clean bathrooms.

Clean facility. Spaces for all types from tents to motor homes. Level shaded spaces. All pull through. Food available on site or stores within minutes. Swimming pool in season.

Fantastic

We loved this place. Pool, playground, jumping pad, horse shoes, roomy tent sites, gem mining, friendly staff, great price. My sister did hurt herself on the slide… but we are adults so maybe it’s our fault. YOLO. She’ll be fine. We had a ton of fun. This was a nice stop on our way. They also had bikes and a train for the kids.

Nice campground with lots of family-friendly amenities

Nice location for a one-night stopover. Kids enjoyed the basketball court, playground, and swimming pool. Clean bathroom/showers.

Equestrian sites. Water and showers, but not much shade!

Nice campgrounds for horse people, although there are hiking trails, as well. Water is available. Showers and toilets are nice. This is on the north end of Tuttle.

Very small, some primitive sites, some with elec

Right on the Big Blue. Quaint. Vault toilets, no water. Trailhead to a nice trail. Some sites have shelters. It's kind of a spread out layout. Great place to get away from busy.

primitive camping only

It’s a nice place to camp kayak and fIsh during cooler weather.

kids love it

very nice, clean bathrooms, along with a clean pool, playground, basketball court, and jump pad. only drawback was interstate noise which was significant in a pop up. well stocked store on site.

Jus passin thru

We stayed here on a passing thru option so didnt get the full flavor. The beach area seemed a bit un kept. We decided it may have been due to storms that had passed through a week before. Really need to give it a better look.

The showers were very clean and accomodating. The grounds were mowed and there was awesome shade throughout.

Best Business Trip Ever

obviously a vacation/destination town has to have decent people working in it, or it might not survive. perhaps the scenery and the relative geographic ease to get here make it such that the people wouldn't have to try that hard, but they do anyway. attributable to the hiring of h/s students, of a trip that was otherwise filled with delightful accommodating people. i cannot wait to return next year and to attend other events as well. it helped me share and promote my local guest posting business with people there. and it helped me promote my business and get fruitful results.

Clean with beautiful view of the lake.

Has equestrian amenities, but sites are not limited to horse enthusiasts. Any campers welcome.

Storm Brewing Over Lake

Was at this area for a fishing tournament happening on Milford Lake. It was storming far to the south, but looked so neat over the lake. This campground was clean and not busy at all as it was March. The state parks weather alerts could be followed online easily and there are tornado sirens in the park with shelters nearby.

Cool Day at Tuttle

Explored some of the trails/hunting areas with my puppy! The scenery was just beautiful and so serene. Enjoyed the seclusion from rest of the state park at this outlet of the lake.

Awesome cabins with lake access

A group of friends rented a cabin at Acorns Resort. the cabins are spacious and well maintained and we had one right down from the water! Went fishing off the docks. There is also a restaurant where you can eat dinner on a grand patio overlooking sunsets on the lake.

Gorgeous Dog Friendly Trails

very well kept trails wind through this park. I went with my two dogs and husband for a fall afternoon hike and thoroughly enjoyed the wooded scenery!

Secluded lake view

beautiful view watching sunsets over Milford lake as our camp site was right off the water. We were secluded from other campsite for some privacy but still near restrooms if we needed it and the camp host was friendly!

Amazing!

It's a quite little area with amazing views! You can go fishing one one side if the cove and catch big catfish, and on the other side there is a beach the kids and swim and play. At the boat marina which u can see from the campsite has a fishing station with a disposal and plug in for electric knifes to clean fish. It's a beautiful quite place!

Improving every time we go

We like to go to this location a few times each year especially for the 2 big holidays! The new owners are improving it each time we go! Very pleased!

So peaceful

We stay many weeks during the season at this park and it is the best. The camp hosts are so nice and helpful. The showers and bathrooms are very clean. They view of the lake from A loop is the best. Love opening the windows and listening to the water at night. Get a good breeze off the lake also which is a plus in a Kansas summer

Most secluded spot around Council Grove Lake

2 different loops with a several waterside campsites and picnic shelters alongside each. Campsites include tent pad, shelter, picnic table and either a fire pit or an elevated grill. There is also water access that you can drop your boat into thats just adjacent for main Richey Cove campground's beach. Tent only camping allows you to get some quiet time in the out doors as its one of the least frequented of the campsites around the lake and the farthest north.

Nice State Park

The is a nice clean Kansas State Park. Lots of shady spots. Easy access to walking trails and water activities. Fire pits and picnic tables at every site. Most sites are only water and electric. There are only a half dozen or so full hook up sites and they are generally always full during camping season. There are two dump stations on site. This park is close to home for us and we camp here often.

If you wanna camp... you could camp here!

Has a nice sandy beach! Part of it cordoned off for just swimmers to enjoy. Also a boat ramp and dock. A section of the campground is off on a small, narrow peninsula known as 'the island' and is a popular spot. Also has group camping sites, shower buildings and several bathrooms around the campground in addition to a playground. Nice, well maintained area right by the lake with lots of trees and easy access from the highway.
