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! 😀

Party spot, kinda smelly.

We had the last spot at the end of the drive, which seemed to be a popular place for day users to park and walk the edge of the water. Several groups showed up looking to cool off and walked right by our spot. Also the area kind of smelled like dead fish. We ended up leaving because we found…

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.

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.

Nice clean place to find an oasis (Wilson Lake) on a highway desert!

Great location in Kansas, 9 miles off I70, at exit 206. US Army Corps of Engineers campground, with water, electric and a dump station available.

Restrooms are heated and showers are available as well.

Senior Passes are accepted. If you choose not to use the electric sites, there are primitive…
