We spent several days camping at Bernice State Park. Spacious, open sites and beautiful views of the lake. They have a hiking trail, but it was closed while we were there as they were getting it ready for Halloween. Didn't use the restrooms. We enjoyed our stay and would go back.
Pulling up, we were dubious at best. Boy, were we surprised. Other casinos we've stayed up were just a parking lot with service. Oh no. These was individual graveled pull thru sites done better than some paid campgrounds we've stayed at. Registering for a players card, we each got $10 free play and $10 free food. Our total breakfast was $1 after applying $. Good selection of 🍺 and liquor. Pool in the bar. Bathrooms super clean. As a former smoker, I didn't like that is was a smoking facility, but the smell was not very strong. We played a whole, had some fun, had some food and drinks and a good night's sleep. The trains coming through several times throughout the night were not too bad. Just wore ear plugs and had our white noise machine going. Would definitely go back if passing this way again.
We go here every year with family, The little trails from the campsites to the lake are amazing! There are little sand bars along the way to get into the water. There are trees at every campsite. Most campsites are nestled into the trees from the road making a beautiful Escape! The showers are very nice and they are free. Bathrooms are kept very nice as well!
This campground offers a quiet out of the way experience. There are only 15 sites, about half of which are electric and water. There are no modern restrooms or showers but there are several vaulted toilets that are cleaned quite frequently. Nestled below the dam this is a hidden gem. I camped here on Labor Day and the park was full. Prior recons of this park were only half full or less. This park sits on the Elk City Lake. It has modern (brand new) playgrounds, basketball courts, and even a sand volleyball court. The sites are spaced well apart from each other and I never heard much of my neighbors. You can only book this campground through recreation.gov. you wont be disappointed!
Wonderful park. Great overall experience. I loved it. Plenty to do with a great playground for the kids, kids fishing pond, basketball and volleyball courts, and even an archery range. Fantastic hiking along the lake bluff will be sure to wear out your legs! All RV sites are water and electric and most are pull through. It's the most level site I have ever had. The only thing that was weird is that when you check in you have to pay an additional $5.00 per day for your vehicle. It was probably in the fine print when I booked the reservation. I went ahead and paid the extra $10 or $15 to just get the year state parks pass, as we plan to camp in KS more this fall. You may have out done yourself KS.
October 1-5, 2019. Love this park. Site 8 had electric, water and sewer. Park had dump station, OK showers and flush toilets, Verizon 4G 2 bars. Elevation 906 ft. Most sewer sites were to high to use. Paid $11 with Sr. Lifetime pass. See RV Camping Journal for details.
