Country Setting

This is an older park but it was very clean. Bathrooms and shower facilities again were older but clean. They have a nice pond and some short but relaxing hiking trails. We stayed at this KOA in the off-season but there were still several full timers in this park. Sites were gravel but mostly level. Close to Topeka, but outside the city giving it a country feel. Good place to stop for an overnight visit but I wouldn't stay longer.

Right In Town

This is a nice camp ground at a lake, right in Topeka. Close to downtown and the capital. Sections of the park are open year round. It is a busy park with lots of people around. Sites are mostly gravel and pretty close together. But the park, restrooms and shower houses are clean. Great place to stay if you need something in town. As a bonus starting the weekend of Thanksgiving through Christmas they have a holiday light display. Thousands of cars drive through each year, and you can walk through on foot. You can camp right in the middle of the display. Even though we only live about an hour away we have been up to this event and camped twice.

Very Nice State Park with great water views

This is a great State Park. Sites are paved with water and electric hook ups. Most are pretty level. Very clean park with nice restrooms and shower facilities. Great water views. The best hiking trails in the State of Kansas are in and around this lake and state park. From this camp ground you can hop on an awesome trail that leads up to the dam over look area. The trail has the lake on one side and rock wall formations on the other. Simply a great hiking area.

Small Camp Ground but great views

This is a small camp ground with electric hook ups only. Great views of the lake. What really makes this park is all the hiking, biking and horse riding trails. Literally miles and miles of trails with some of the best rock formations you will find in Kansas. There is also a larger camp ground set back from the lake, that is larger and has pins for horses.

Nice State Park

The is a nice clean Kansas State Park. Lots of shady spots. Easy access to walking trails and water activities. Fire pits and picnic tables at every site. Most sites are only water and electric. There are only a half dozen or so full hook up sites and they are generally always full during camping season. There are two dump stations on site. This park is close to home for us and we camp here often.
