Date of Stay:

Very clean, large full service sites, however no privacy. Lots of huge oak trees and lawns. We had 2 bars on Verizon. The only negative was no electrical outlet in bath house. Staff all friendly and helpful. There is good wifi at the office. We enjoyed the Springs on the day it was sunny and 75F. The marina next door charged $5 to use the boat launch on the first day but we learned on day 3 that it is half price for Federal pass holders. We saw lots of manatee.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here mid-week and had our choice of several spots on the lake. We did not make a reservation. Very quiet. Lots of trees and huge shrubs. Pretty view.

Date of Stay:

No electricity. Water at pump. Some sites are reseravable at recreation.gov. we had no problem finding a non reseravable spot as we visited on a week night. Wonderful host allowed me to plug my phone into his camper to charge it. He also kindly gave me firewood as everything on the ground was wet. He was the best.

We have stayed here at least twice a year for the last 10 years. Always before we were able to pay $5 for a DAYTIME visitor car pass. This time they will only give a pass to the camping vehicle and one other car. No exceptions. This meant our son who was camping with us had to drive several miles out of the park to pick up his wife for a few hours visit. I realize they are limiting the number of cars to cut down on party plans but there has to be a better family-friendly way. The camp hosts say they are only following the Rangers wishes.The Ranger rides through once a day. This is a very old park and much of the shade and privacy is being lost due to tree removal. Don't think we will return.

Date of Stay:

A long drive from the Interstate but well-worth it. They are working on repaving the roads so we did have some stop and go. The destination is well-worth the aggravation as the scenery is spectacular. We got there in the early afternoon and we were able to get an electric site which are first come, first served. It is "on the road" parking with the electric box at the side. There is no water hookup. There is a trail to the Visitor Center, the Gift Shop in the main building, and a restaurant. We would definitely stay here for a longer time on our next trip.

Date of Stay:

This is a somewhat crowded park. The interior roads are very narrow. Be sure to watch out for the roof overhang on the office. All the interior roads are one-way. We had a neighbor come in at midnight in a big diesel hauler pulling a 5th wheel which was very noisy. They also left before 7 a.m. the next morning. No gate on the entrance or exit. Close to the Interstate so you hear the trucks, too. We would probably not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This is our third stay here. We camped for one night. It is at least 10 miles off the Interstate and the roads are narrow and winding. It is a lovely, shaded park with small campsites. There is a host to take your money. We would stay here again. Very quiet park.

Date of Stay:

This was our 3rd stay here and there have been many physical changes for the better. However, there used to be a park attendant to take the money and oversee the grounds. Now, there is an envelope payment system which is very confusing. There is a "host camper" during the evening to sell wood. People are allowed to come and pay for a site but don't have to occupy it. This is a nice park with lots of shade trees and grass. It is easy to find and close to the interstate.

We love this park. This was our second stay. We stayed on site 38 for a month. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. There's a gift shop and plenty of information on the local sights. the laundry room is open 24 hrs a day. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This campgroud is showing it's age. The roads in the campgroud are very narrow and the sites are small. Big dropoffs between the blacktop and the ground, even in the sites. It looks like all the soil has washed out. Unable to reach the water or electric hookups because they are between two sites close to the road. Stayed for 1 night. Would not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We spent a week here over the 4th of July. The fireworks were canceled due to heat, drought and high winds. The park is very clean and well-maintained. The word "Lakeside" is misleading as you are about a mile from the lake, however, many campers are there with their boats and jet skis. The sites are all double-wide in order to park your camper, vehicle and boat/trailer. The owners are on site and are friendly and helpful. There is a small bar, gift shop and store. You can also get a pizza cooked to order. We would definitely stay here again but during a cooler month.

Date of Stay:

This is a horse friendly campground adjacent to the Custer battlefield. The sites are on a hillside but they are terraced so ours was very level. Nice hiking trails. Free ice cream on arrival! This was our second visit. We would stay there again.

Date of Stay:

Nice park with lots of big trees. A little tight getting into our site due to the closeness of the trees. Lots of pretty summer flowers. The only negative was the amount of children in the small pool. The owners open the pool in the summer for local children to pay to swim. No room for the campers from noon to 6pm.

Date of Stay:

This is a very nice Federal Park that we continue to visit after many years. The sites are generous, the grounds are well kept and all the people who work here are friendly and helpful. This facility is very strict about quiet hour, and no alcohol consumption. The gate is locked from 10pm until 7am. There is a new playground for the kids. The only negative is that the low water in Lake Lanier makes the sandy beach useless. The campground usually clears out on Sunday and is fairly unpopulated until Friday. It is open only for the Summer months. A reservation is recommended for the weekends. Each site has water and electricity. There is a pull through dump and several clean shower houses. The washers and dryers are very reasonably priced. We camped here for 2 weeks.

Date of Stay:

According to the owner this is the oldest campground in Kansas and dates from 1886. There are many huge Sycamore trees which provide the sites with lots of shade. The sites on the West side where we stayed are not well marked but they are all grassy. There are more sites behind the roller rink which seem to be more popular. There are many things for children to do such as roller skating in the enclosed rink, and miniature golf. The buildings are all interesting as is the hotel and the Spring. We would definitely stay there again.
