Once this was a very well designed and maintained park. Unfortunately the current owners are letting it decline. 7 of the 37 sited are out of service. The water fixture in our site leaked. Check in is at the customer service desk at the Chevron station on the highway, The park is situated well off the highway and the Interstate. There are railroad tracks nearby but with no crossings horn blowing is far off. One advantage of the new owner is that they have not changed the rate. $22.95 for a full hookup 30/50 amp site these days is very rare.

Date of Stay:

A unique campground in that it offers different levels of service. Rate is for electric only with GS discount. Ideal for a quite overnight stop. Easy access but still far enough away from the Interstate.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects GS discount. Park is in excellent condition. Attentive staff. Laundry room in good condition. Washer/dryers worked well. First time here. Would stay again if the opportunity presents it self.

Having stayed here in the past we knew what to expect. We were not disappointed. Except maybe that the restaurant has never opened. Nice staff, great facilities. Getting a bit expensive however.

Having traveled for way many more years than I want to admit this is the first campground that actually get's it. You want just electric, they've got that. There are 4 free air TV stations. You want full hookups without all the extra's, they've got that. Great for those with satellite service. If you want the full load, they've got that. Complete with a bunch of cable channels. Rate reflects electric only with GS discount. Grounds are gravel, no grassy patched between sites. This is Wyoming high desert after all. There are 3 pet corrals for letting Fido run around.

Hasn't changed much over the years. Just a basic overnight stop in an area with few options. The WiFi is marginal at best. The antenna is attached to the road side of the metal building/office/showers/laundry. It pretty well blanks out coverage past the first row or two. No discounts. Just 25 for 30A and 30 for 50A. Take it or leave. No one in the office or anyone to attempt to make contact after your arrival. Fair amount of road noise for those that like to sleep with the windows open.

The fairgrounds in updating their facilities. There is now a small private full hookup campground just inside Gate 6 enter from Lincoln. The new campground also has a new restroom. The remainder of the fairgrounds is a series of "campgrounds". Most with electric only. Electric is steady. Plenty of shade. The restrooms in the older areas are tired. Reasonably clean but tired. Rain will muddy some of the roads. Takes a day or two to dry out. Saturday is race day at the race track on the North end of the fairgrounds. If you are into dirt track racing it's cool. If not it will be noisy for a few hours. And there is a DQ just outside the fairgrounds.

Good Sam Park. Great hosts, well kept park. Some Interstate noise. This park is the closest to town and the Corn Palace. Good Wi-Fi. Good Verizon signal strength.

Another great Iowa county park. Located south of town on an old farm property, there is something there for everyone. First campground with an 18 hole golf course with club rentals. Canoe rentals, river trips, and hiking trails. The campground has an unusual layout. There are several circle group sites with back-ins around the outside. Some shade. Good free air TV and Verizon signal.

It is an older KOA. The host are keeping it in excellent condition. Showers were great with soft water which was a pleasant surprise. Lot's of shade.

As others have mentioned, a nice park conveniently located to SE Topeka. Looks like a popular local gathering place. Definitely a good value for the money. A nearby treasure is Lonnie's BBQ. Look it up. It's incredible.

We've been doing this for more years than we want to admit to, and in all that time we have never seen cleaner restrooms and laundry. We're talking Q tip clean, literally. Very friendly staff. Good location off I-90. Level sites. Facilities all as advertised. We will stay here again.

I may get in trouble with the regulars for posting this State Park. If you're into fishing this place is amazing. No motorized, lots of bank fishing with embarrassingly good results. Fish cleaning station. Park is busy on the weekends but not during the week. Sites are arranged so you aren't on top of each other. One loop of dry sites, two loops of water/electric. WiFi is free for 20 minutes, $3 per day. You can make reservations online but if you call direct they have a whole raft of discounts that ReserveAmerica will not tell you about. IE retired half price. No dump stations in the park, but the city of Winchester has one to use free of charge.

A resort in the making but not quite there yet. If your focus is on rafting a beautiful river in some spectacular country this may work for you. As an RV campground for overnight or as a base for touring, not so much. Rates get you a grassy spot near a power post. Available water is marked Non Potable. If there is 50 amp we missed it. The 30 amp we had could not keep up with our A/C. Popped the post breaker repeatedly. Buildings are remnants of a bygone day, tired and worn. Despite being 2 miles North of I-90 it's amazing how much traffic noise there is. Having said all that the folks working to make a go of it are good hearted and hard working.

Given its location, well away from an Interstate or a major tourist stop, it is quite nice. An older park (17 years) it is in excellent condition. Park owner (?) is quite nice. Sites are level with well located utilities. Well lit for late arrivals. Despite repeated efforts we could not connect with the WiFi. Be careful when approaching the park; it is on the right (east side) of the highway. The sign is quite faded and hard to read. On entry, stop in front of the house. Do not turn to the left side of the house.
