no water ir sewer crowded on weekends
Camp ground is great. There are 2 shower houses, 1 new one torwards the front and one in the farthest loop. There is a small lake great for kayaking and fishing boats. The swim beach has been closed because of excesive vegetation growth. The trail wraps the lake and connects to the edge of the campground. There is a couple historic sites not far on the side of the lake, quick little drive.
Very clean and safe place. Lots of shaded campsites, a lot with electric hookups. Clean bathrooms and shower houses. Can bring your kayaks at no extra cost! We will definitely be back!
Great park, nice camp sites, will come again!
Watkins Mill offers easy access, level sites. The Mill is a great place to tour while getting some exercise. The small lake seems to not attract a lot of boaters, but has a fishing dock.
We stayed in primitive site #3 - fairly close to neighbors, but with some berms/hills between it still felt relatively private. Site didn’t have a ton of level tent sites, but was otherwise in good shape.
Fall foliage was gorgeous this past weekend, and we thoroughly enjoyed the woolen mill tour at the adjacent state historic site.
Shower and restroom facilities seemed adequate, though more dated than other similar state parks in the area. Serviceable but not immaculately clean.
This state park is super pretty! Has a paved path that goes all the way around the lake, path is bumpy even though it’s paved but the views are amazing! Nice picnic areas also!
I can't say enough good things about this campground. Nice stay!! We will be back.
Beautifully layed out with paved access, trees spots and a nice lake. Clean facilities include plenty of stalls and sinks, separate showers and laundry. Well lit and accessible.
Clean bathroom and shower facilities. The park and campsite are gorgeous. There's a lake but it's not anything to brag about, and the swimming beach is closed often due to bacteria in the lake.
It's a short drive from Kansas City and one of my favorite weekenders when the weather is nice. We've always had a great time on our stays.
