Camped in RV area nice lake and camp hrounds
This rating is for the Cottonwood section of Foss State Park. It was a very disappointing stay. We stayed in the full hookup section of this area. You can literally touch the camper next to you due to the cramped sites. The neighbors sewer hookup ran under our awning. The grass is almost knee high all around here even at the site. This section is not maintained at all. Lots of people partying late nearby as well. The tent camp section was bad as well. Grass so high it was almost 18 inches tall. This section is nowhere near the lake. I hope the other sections of the campground are better. AT&T cell service was unusable due to weak signal. Verizon was good.
This campground offers an area sectioned off for swimmers. A lot of room is available for boating fun wether it be fishing, skiing, tubing, etc. The park rangers are very friendly and accommodating. Also they do special events during the year like fireworks on the lake for the 4th of July, haunted trails and trick or treating for Halloween, some other events here and there year round.
Rv sites have great bath houses with toilets, a paved parking lot, and the showers are coin operated.
Tent campers have unpaved roads along with a permanent building for the toilet provided (basically a huge hole under the toilet like a porta potty and no showers). However, every tent site has a water spigot.
We camped in China Berry campground, but had China berries all over everything when we left.
The best swimming area is for day use only, while other areas have trees in the water. The day area also has a permanent porta potty. Interestingly enough, the theme of Sunset beach is tropical!? This is, of course, the photo shown online.
The marina has a restaurant that has decent food and is reasonably priced.
Heard of a great bike trail but did not have time to find
A good off the beaten path park worth the drive once
Plenty of places to just picnic for the day, camp for the night or stay a couple weeks:) showers at various campsites, you do have to pay but hey least their available:):)
This is a huge camping park, with lots of sites for RV’s with full hookups, partial hookups, and a seperate tent area. The bathhouse was really clean, with pay showers. There is a nice swim beach, great open fields for sport games, a nice playground, frisbee golf course, and supposedly a small herd of bison behind the visitor center that you can watch come in to feed daily (I missed that somehow). I didn’t feel like the RV sites were as on top of each other as they seem in other campgrounds I’ve been to. The tent sites were ok, with some on the lake with no shade, and others tucked in among a tight bunch of trees. All had the usual picnic tables and fire pits. This park is not too far off Hwy 40/Route 66, so it is a nice place to camp if you are travelling Old 66.
We stayed here during our Spring break. Sites are pull through and big enough to fit a 40’ fifth wheel. Electric/ water and sewer hook ups are available ad well as restrooms and showers.
