Awesome Overnight Stay, Few People

Stopped here on my way through Kansas towards Colorado. The park was nearly empty on a Sunday night, so I got a nice lakefront site with no one else around for $14.

Only complaint is that the camp attendant wasn't there, so I had to pay for the campsite online. But cell coverage was decent.

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…

Good kid amenities

Convenient location along I-70 meant lots of highway noise. My kids loved the ping pong, basketball, inflatable jump pad, old metal playground and outdoor pool. Mosquitos were bad at dusk and dawn. Sites were tight and the standard site we had didn't include a fire ring. Restrooms were clean but…

Clean, friendly, quiet

Tent-camped at a walk-in site on S-loop (away from water). Gatehouse attendants were super friendly. Free shower house was clean and serviced regularly. Other loops a bit more busy but seemed nice enough.

Campground with Lots of Camping Opportunities

After having camped every night for the past several nights in cold weather, we decided to stay in a KOA Kamping Kabin this time. While we were in Colorado, it had gotten below freezing and it had snowed. It was time for a break. This campground should be rated on a scale of 1-10. I would give it a…

COE campgrounds are some of the best

I have come to really like COE campgrounds. Everyone I've visited has been clean, spacious and well maintained. This one is no exception. We stayed in mid week during May and just about had the place to ourselves.

There is plenty of room between sites with well maintained grounds. Most but not…

Smoky HillRV Park

I believe this is the new name for this park (same address). It is too nice of a park to not be reviewed! The park sits on 2 terraced levels and consists of nice, grassy, large sites. The area is very pretty and the park overlooks a river. Check in was very easy and convenient. You will see from…

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!…

Views of the sky and lake

This campground deserves 5 stars because the views are breathtaking. Electrical hook-up for RVs. Water. Dump station. Tent camps available. Our own experience is more like a 3 because while the campground was open, the bathrooms were not. Water was not available either. If this happens to you, jump…

This looks Fake

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

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.
