Good

Rockwall has covered picnic area at each primitive site, which was great for us as it rained half our trip. The campground is more secluded and sites are further apart, which we loved. Easy access to fishing but the trails are further away.

Nice Little Place to Stop

A city maintained park in Lincoln Kansas with 30 and 50 amp plugs, dumping station, and a nice park next door. And $20! 😀

High hopes, not impressed 👎🏼

Being hikers at heart, we chose this campground since it is very close to the Horse Thief Trail trailhead. Unfortunately, the trails are very much built for horseback riding with sand terrain, a VERY narrow path and intense overgrowth. Not quite what we were expecting. It would probably be okay…

Stunning Hidden Find

This place is incredible! Right by a lake, this campground is extremely well maintained and spacious. You can sit at a picnic table, under luscious trees overlooking the lake and the houses beyond. There are RV spots and primitive campsites, and if you go Sunday-Thursday, those primitive sites are…

Quiet and secluded

I stayed in the very back one because it was one of the only ones open. I did t need it but if I did the big covered picnic area is very nice. The area is well taken care of but does have nice foresty area around it.

Truly A Hidden Gem

This was our second time camping here and we loved it just as much as the first! We stayed on Wheatgrass loop site #57. The sites are huge! This back-in site was easily 50-60ft long. Water and electric hookups were conveniently located and the site was mostly level side to side. And that view!…

This looks Fake

I'm almost positive this camp site is fake. I wouldn't call the number to make reservations.

Not good for camping

If you want a nice walk drive to kanapolis. If you want to calm and swim go somewhere else. The water is disgusting. Camping areas are full of sand spiders and May flys.

Good for 1-2 days

It's a nice little fishing lake. It's a bit small and don't have swimming areas. But it's nice looking.

Dirty bathrooms

  We came in the late afternoon on a Friday in October. Drove from the interstate. We saw the sign & turned. We became completely lost. I picked up a map at the office, which was closed, but it didn't help. We drove around then came back to the office. There was a conservation officer in the…

What a lovely campground and state park

What a lovely campground and state park.  It’s 16 minutes off I70 and feels so remote and peaceful- no highway traffic noise. We pulled in late at night on a Monday in October after many hours in the road and were thrilled at how peaceful and clean it was. We stayed at campsite 17 right on the lake…

Eh ...

Found a nice primitive spot, but up hammocks, then teenagers showed up and played loud music and partied all night. Not much peace
