Nice clean park, friendly camp hosts

We stayed here from Oct 9-11th 2020, spot 2. It was a holiday weekend, so the park was pretty packed, but the other campers were friendly. The spots were not too terribly close together, and all the utilities worked well. The table, fire pit and bbq grill were standard park equipment and in good functioning order. The bath/shower house was modern, functional, and impressively clean. The river access from our spot was limited, with one treacherous trail behind our camp. However, the public access point in the park was a little steep but otherwise easily accessible.

Our only downsides : our spot was kind of small, I had to unhook my truck and park next to our 20’ trailer to not stick out into the road. The dump station in the park was out of service so we had to drive across the dam to the state park, which wasn’t really an issue. There was a very rowdy crowd in the campsite over who were somewhat obnoxiously loud Friday and Saturday, but we didn’t let it bother us.

All in all, a great little campground to access all the features at Kanapolis Reservoir.

Nice fall camping

We had a nice weekend stay at this lake. We booked site #210, and were happy with the amenities. Fire ring with built in grill worked well. Luckily the lake wasn’t crowded, so we had lots of space to ourselves. Lake staff were pleasant Nice views of the lake, but not very good shore access from where we were at. However at the end of the campsite was a nice fishing dock. The took a short hike and the trail was well maintained. All in all, we found it to be a nice stay and fairly close to home.

A treasure in Kansas!

We are new to RV’ing, so my experience is somewhat limited, but this was a very nice campground and I couldn’t imagine how it could get much better. Compared to the few other lakes we’ve stayed at, this campground it very nicely developed with electric and water hook ups in just the right spots, and a really nice area with a picnic table, bbq grill and nice ring with an additional cooking grate in each spot. The whole camp was very cleaned and maintained and the park ranger was very accessible. We had a great time. The only reason I don’t give it 5 stars is because there was fairly limited shore access in the campground we stayed in, which was Mound Valley North Loop. Otherwise it was perfect.

Edit 10.11.20:

I wanted to edit my prior review and add a star. We ended up going to Big Hill 3 times this year, and several other state parks and campgrounds, and Big Hill is our favorite. My original title was correct, a treasure in Kansas.
