Simple but satisfactory

This was a perfectly fine campground. Very clean, well maintained. It is Kansas, so it’s very open, you wouldn’t have a lot of privacy if it was busier, although there are lots of short trees around the little lake. There is a bathroom, there’s water, a fire ring, and a picnic table. Easy to find, stop, and set up here. Not sure if there are more spots to camp around the lake, nothing seems to be marked. Someone else mentioned the grain silo not too far away…it is a bit loud but it almost felt like white noise or something, didn’t bother me.

Smarsh Creek Campground

Very nice shaded sites with water and electric hookup. It can be hot in the summer. Campground is clean and well run. Nice, level gravel pads.

At south loop #147

It's a nice site but the people that departed, after our check-in time, left a mudhole and dog poop everywhere. Don't think we will stay at this site again. The water hookups just make a mess

Noisy

As with many campgrounds in Kansas, this state fishing lake boasts camping without charge. There are five designated primitive tent spots with fire rings and tables. No RV spots, no electric, and no water. Two spots are at the entrance near the vault toilet and three spots are caddy corner on the back of the lake. You are responsible for removing your trash, the fields are well maintained, and of course you can fish. There are two docks and you can drop a boat in the small lake. There is a lot of noise from the working silos, railroad, and highways.

Nice and clean park next to the lake

There’s fire ring and picnic table. Next to the lake where you can go fishing. It’s a nice and quiet place. Except there’s a train railroad nearby which you can hear the train sometimes. There’re two places you can stay, one next to the park entrance and another is the opposite side of the lake.

Best place close to Wichita

Best place close to west Wichita. Several areas to choose From. Most with large camping spots. All with fire rings. Water and electric available with several dump stations.

Great!

Have stayed at this lake many times over the last 35 years, both in a tent and a camper. There are sites for everything. I've even seen people sleep in the bed of their pickup trucks. Full service, no service, whatever you need. Bath houses are cared for daily.

Nice chill environment

Great place to hang out with the family. Awesome for fishing in the boat if, you can find the right spot!!

Easy-peasy Indian Creek

fastest/easiest to navigate campsite within the red. large open plain, big enough to play various sports, let your dogs run around, sun bathe, etc. no set tent sites, which i like because there are plenty of places to set up a tent and be away from your neighbors although privacy is limited since it's essentially a large field near a creek. plenty of found wood for kindling. lots of trails along the creek for easy waking/hiking. not too far from the suspension bridge. this campsite has clear view of the sky's and no campground lights/ no light pollution. great for moon/star gazing. this is a great campsite for families, young and old, and perfect for an easy camping experience. probably not suited for those wanting a more primitive and forest heavy camping experience. i've camped here 4 times in the last five years and it has been nice to see the way the creek has shaped the land.

Summer fun

The campsite has friendly staff, the facilities and campsites are clean, great swimming area. They are pet friendly and have a leash law. The boat ramp and dock are good sized and kept maintained. I have a great time everytime I go. I recommend it as a stop while you are in Kansas.
