Stayed 2 nights in early March. Lake View site #22, beautiful view from the lake's edge. Most sought after site. Was nearly all alone. Power and Electric hook-ups. Many hook-up options but no sewer. Did have a dump station. Roughly $20/night for premium site. Some spots are a little close together, but the lake views and otherwise open areas make up for it.
They have a great nature walking trail that is well mowed. Good for young kids. Go here to get away. There is no cell service unless. You drive up to the top of the dam. We camp behind the dam. It is quiet and has good patches of grass on most sites for tents. The showers and bathrooms are well maintained and always clean. I wanted to deduct a star for lack of swimming area at the lake but this isn’t really their fault; the drought has been rough. Bring baseball equip if you are staying a while, or frisbees. They have a frisbee golf course and lots of room for baseball or other sports.
You wouldn’t believe it when you’re approaching it, since it seems near a road and behind the train tracks, and it seems to be near a refinery. But this 16-site, city-run park and campground is the kind of place I had been hoping to run across on my long drive. It has shady spots in an area where shade is a rarity. It’s a little protected by its location near the river, which is great.
It has hot showers and flush toilets, and did I mention hot water? There are park facilities like a play structure and lots of green grass. And it’s clean! At this writing, the fee ranges from $5 to $15 per night.
The site manager was extremely helpful and pleasant. It was worth calling ahead to let him know I was coming. (620) 626-0531
Well maintained sites. Amazing swimming area. Helpful staff
Small store for snacks and bait. The even have an ice cream truck that makes the rounds! Huge catfish have been caught here. They have many dates for family friendly activities that include trick or treating in Oct.
Boat access but it's a no wake lake
Nearest major town about 25 miles away
Some spots cannot be reserved
Game wardens patrol regularly so make sure you have the correct permits
Dunefield has lots of interesting plants. The main attraction is exploring them by dune buggy or 4 wheeler, which you can rent on-site.
Yay: simple campground with hot showers. Note that there are two areas to camp, one for RVs and one for tents, separated. This is the one for tents!
Nay: Since there are so many motorized vehicles on the dunes, walking around them is not very fun (you can rent on site) and they may wake you up early in the morning. When we went about 5 years ago you had to provide your own helmets (bike helmets are ok). Campground is small and the paved (RV) spaces are extremely close together. Make reservations in summer.
Surprise: The dunes aren’t very tall compared to ones we’ve been to elsewhere, but riding through them and making little jumps is a lot of fun. Nice stargazing.
