Odd policy of age of RV determines how long they will let you stay. They would only allow a week until they saw me and my rig. I suppose that is a legal way to discriminate. Stayed there once before; was a camp ground but also found it odd that electricity was metered was separate from overnight rate

Town Makes It Worth It

We’ve been to Weston Bend once before, but not with our pop up. Sites are fairly close together. No water hook ups and spigot water was kind of funky.

Our site was just down the road from the showers, but could potentially be an up hill journey for some sites.

The town of Weston will keep us coming back. Great wineries and shops. Just outside KC makes it super convenient for us!

Didn’t take too many pics this time!

A weekend away

Overall it’s a very nice park, close to the lake and lots of space.  The biggest drawback is some pretty poorly maintained showers & bathrooms.  The larger shower houses were fine but the satellite vaulted toilets looked like they hadn’t been swept in a few years.  If you’re an rv camper who showers in your rig it’s a great place, if your a tent camper be ready for some ick.

Peaceful weekend

Small campground, but clean and very peaceful. Waterfront site. Private lake so fishing was not a problem.

Nice campground, good breakfast nearby

This is a nicely maintained state park. All the amenities you'd expect. No complaints. Truck stop a few miles away that had a really good breakfast and giant cinnamon rolls!

Nice area, not too many around you

Smaller campground. Close to outlet. Trails in area (short). Clean, nice bathrooms and showers.

Nicely Ran and Clean Campground

Nice accommodations from camping spots, motel rooms, cabins and houses. Well ran. Golf carts, a pool, activities for the kids. Only drawback is the airplanes overhead going to and from the airport.

Hillsdale Stare Park

Hillsdale is a nice place to camp that isn’t too far out of the city. Decent accommodations and nice camp sites near the water front.

Good primitive camping

Good primitive campsite on the water. Good kayaking If you know where to put in. Pit pots at main entrance and campsites at parking lot if hiking to your site isn’t your thing. Decent hike.

Backpacking with Bison

Please note that this is NOT the designated Sage Creek campground but the wilderness area that allows for very primitive tent camping. You park off of Rim Road where there is a small lot and a place to register (whether you're day-hiking or staying over night). You hike down into the high prarie and keep wide eye out for bison ( there are over 600 in the badlands!). Make sure that when you do come across wildlife, especially bison, that you give them ample space, do not appear aggressive and definitely don't try to pet them. You must hike in with your food and plenty of water, because the water in Sage Creek is not able to be filtered. It is very easy to spend hours and days exploring the beautiful land and jagged rock, but you must be prepared. From what we saw and what we researched, rarely do people go out and backpack and camp in this wilderness area. I would recommend this to only those who have enough experience backpacking and who know how to prepare themselves, as you will not be near any people or amenities.

Campsite was clean but smell of sulfur was horrible.

Smell of rotten eggs, (sulfur). From decomposing organic material. Our dogs got sick from the high amounts of contaminents in the air. Spent hours at the Vets office for treatment. I'll never see Pomona Lake again.

Very nice campground

Great place to camp! Clean facilities

Nice view, but...

…essentially row housing for trailers. ZERO privacy or space from your neighbors. Nice looking lake and glad to have a cheap spot to park, but not a destination for us…just passing through. Would fit the bill if looking for a local place to stay in/near Topeka, but not planning to return. Site 97 is sloped towards the lake and am barely able to stabilize the trailer.

great primitive camping

Camping spots along trail are really spread out and even if every spot is full you still feel secluded.

More KOA Gravel

Another KOA that just loves gravel! The road in is paved, but there is gravel (and dust) everywhere else. There is also very little shade - so is was hot in July! There is a nice, but small, salt water swimming pool that was refreshing after driving 8 hours. And a small dog park. There is a small store/ gift shop with basics. The shower/bathroom was clean.

Not bad

Free dispersed camping at camp area 3. Showers have warm water. Very muggy in the summer.

Final approach!

The campground is on the final approach for the airport, so you get to see a lot planes flying overhead, which you don’t even notice cause they are quieter than they used to be be, and I think they shut down flights around 10pm. At least I didn’t hear them. The campground it’s self is clean and the staff was nice. We stay here when we visit our son and daughter-in-law.

I don’t fish but others says the fishing is good. The store has a few things you might need. The food is ok, but they do deliver your food to your campsite.

Nice place

Nice little campground with decent trails. The river was inaccessible when we went which was a bummer but my son and I enjoyed ourselves.

Lake view

Beautiful place with low rates

Would not recommend

Weird campsites, not enough trees, super loud at night due to traffic, the lake is disgusting and we ended up leaving after one night. Would never return.

fun lake

the camping is like most in the area.  bathrooms, hooks-up, everything you would expect.  The lake is fun and has some good fishing as well as some good coves for kayaking.

what you would expect

like most state lakes here in KS, it's kept well with good facilities and close enough to towns for any needs.  Good fishing and great times.

great Kansas lake

great campgrounds with great fishing.

great small lake

Great little lake.  Good fishing, great locations for kayaking and paddle boarding.  the camp can get crowded quick and it's a toss up who will be around and how well behaved.  there is a park for this kids and a great swim beach in the summer.

Great area lots of room. Very clean

South side of the lake has great view of the lake

Like trains?

Friendly and helpful owners with basic/average facilities. A freight line runs next to the property (about 100 yards from our site). Convenient location easy off/on I70, but almost no gas/food options at this exit (333). Firewood and food delivery to the site a plus.

Friendly staff

We made a last minute decision and decided to stay somewhere near KC after a long cross country trip. With it being Memorial Day weekend, we new it would be hard to find a place that would allow a same day reservation. Mark and Kyle at Walnut Grove could not have been more friendly and accommodating when we called to try to reserve a spot.

When we arrived, the staff flagged us in and showed us to our site. There was free WiFi, clean restrooms, and a nice little shop. Our site had a 50amp hookup for electric, and water/sewer. There is also a small area for dogs to run around in, while I wouldn’t consider it a true “dog park”, it still was nice to have a designated area to take your dog.

The most negative thing about this place is that the sites are right on top of each other. I would estimate about 6 feet separated our camper from the RV next to us. For the price to stay here, I would have liked a little more room/privacy, and a few more options for things to do within the campground.

If it weren’t for the super cool staff, I’d probably rate this location with fewer stars. It worked great as a short term stay, but in my opinion it’s not a place I’d want to stay for several days/nights.

Corp of Engineers Campground

This campground is on the south side of the lake and a little harder to get to than the State Parks. We do prefer it. It is right on the lake, offers tent and RV camping. Great access to boat ramps, fishing dock, and a large sandy beach. Restrooms are on par with most public campgrounds.There is a small country store nearby.

Clinton State Park Campground #3

We have tent camped here often. Most of the sites are spacious. It's not unusual to find a site with no neighbors. The campground is uphill from the lake but the are hiking trails to the lake as well as other trails around the park. Vault toilets and flush toilets with showers are available. They could be better maintained. Overall it is a nice quiet campground for a quick getaway. Also, very close to Lawrence.

Peaceful and Relaxing

This Campground is quiet and serene. The management are very friendly and accommodating. The campground has peaceful creekside sites as well as easy to use pull through sites for the larger RV's. There are plenty of areas for kids and animals to play. If you want the office cooks meals or pizza so you dont have to find a store or restaurant. The Campground is conveniently located just off the interstate and close to several wineries and antique shops.
