We used this for an overnight stop and it was great for that purpose. For short stays they assign you to a separate non-shaded gravel section with easy, level pull throughs and full hook ups. For longer stays they have a large really nice area of campsites that are beautifully shaded and landscaped. Friendly staff. Great Verizon signal and wi-fi. Nice area to walk dogs. Adjacent to RV dealership, which is next to the highway and blocks any noise to the campground. Totally quiet night for us. We'd stay there again for sure. It's between Carthage and Joplin, not sure how far away it would be from supermarkets or Walmart. No swimming pool and I don't recall seeing a playground.

Beautiful campground on the shore of Table Rock Lake. Lots of trees for great shade. Lake nearby but not visible from most campsites. Verizon signal poor. Very spacious sites in some loops. Sites near marina can be quite close together. Some sites are hopelessly difficult to achieve level. Roads could be wider. Driveways into the sites are pretty narrow with culvert and deep ditches to deal with. Another reviewer mentioned the best site numbers. Heed that advice. We were in 50 and though it is a very long pull thru it's impossible to level without backing from the paved drive onto part of the gravel/grass area of the yard. Nice and shady spot, just awful to get into. Beach is nice, marina with slips is nice. Area is gorgeous. Lake is very nice. We would camp here again, but be more site selective.

This is a lovely state park in a mile long canyon with paved roads throughout. Campsites are either paved or have cement pad, and very level. Verizon signal spotty. Able to get a few TV stations with antenna positioned just right. Nice playground equipment for the kids, and a seasonal swimming pool that looks nice. Park is perfect for riding bicycles. Lots of shade throughout the park. There is a stream that runs next to all campsites. We stayed in a pull thru space that was perfect. Very spacious and private from next campsite. Three camping areas and many tent areas available, too. The canyon is beautiful with hiking trails and rappelling allowed. And since it's in a canyon, the trademark Oklahoma wind isn't really an issue. Small fishing pond that is quite mossy, but we caught fish. Lots of picnic pavilions for larger groups. The turn off into the park from the highway is easy to miss, and once you turn in there is a very steep road down into the canyon. It's a short twisting road, but we had absolutely no issues with our 36' fifth wheel and truck. It's a great place to camp, and if you're driving I-40 through western Oklahoma, it's only 5 miles south of the highway right in the town of Hinton. And the $20.00 fee is total, there is no car fee, just campsite fee.

     

Salina KOA

Salina, Kansas

Date of Stay:

Very well maintained KOA. Large shade trees throughout the park. Level sites, most are gravel but some are concrete. Full service cabins available as well as the typical camping cabins. Fishing pond, pool, playground. Good location off of I-70 and not far at all from I-135. Traffic noise wasn't a bother to us at all, but I think it could be if you had your windows open or were tent camping. This is a nice campground and the staff seems helpful and friendly. There is a Yesteryears Museum across the street. Eisenhower presidential museum is in Abilene 20 miles east. Rock City park is about 20 miles north.

Date of Stay:

Very large campground. Large, well spaced sites. Most sites will accommodate any length RV. New area has full hookups. We were in 101, pull thru site right on the lake, full hookups. Lake view from every site. Covered picnic tables. Campground has a lot of shade. The new area has less trees, but with time it will be very shady too. Shower house in our loop is brand new. Tile floors, private stalls, looks nice. The entire campground has been very well maintained. We are impressed. Very friendly staff. Reason for 9 instead of 10 is because after 1" of rain some of the sites are a bit muddy and could use more gravel. But really for camping it's just about perfect. Fishing looks to be good here. Beaches available as well as courtesy fishing piers.

We stayed here after finding campsite water is turned off for the season at Lake Shawnee where we intended to go. This park is surrounded by lovely trees and a creek area. Half mile from lake. Very new park and really excellent place to stay. Large well spaced sites with well manicured grounds. Paved roads and campsites. Pool looks very nice though off season so closed now. Great playground. Enormous fenced dog area. Very secure. Staff very friendly and helpful. If you leave RV windows open you'll hear highway traffic noise some. Which means it's convenient to I-70. Very secluded though. We were very impressed and highly recommend this RV park. Perfect for short or long stays in Topeka. New and meticulously maintained.

Wonderful KOA in western Kansas. Super quiet location, super clean accommodations, and super friendly hosts who truly care about their customers and also their campground facilities. Great place to walk your dog. The breakfast in the morning is excellent, also. Makes an overnight stop really relaxing and pleasant.

This is by far our favorite campground/state park. The sites are large, level, private, scenic, quiet.... perfect. Though we've camped here often, this was only our second late fall camping trip to Mueller. The aspen colors were magnificent. Perfect temperatures in the daytime for hikes, although there were a couple days of snow/sleet and the nighttime temps were in the 20s and 30s. Shower house is kept pretty warm and the water temperature was perfectly warm. The rangers and visitor center staff are so friendly and helpful. And there are lots of opportunities for sightseeing within fairly close driving distance. Eleven Mile Canyon is 8 miles west in Lake George if you're into trout fishing and more beautiful scenery. Buena Vista is a little over an hour drive in the Collegiate Peaks area (lots of beautiful scenery). Cripple Creek/Victor is about a 20 minute drive south. Woodland Park has everything you might need to buy (AKA Walmart). Divide also offers a nicely supplied grocery store. I cannot think of any negatives to this park.

Date of Stay:

For an overnight stay you cannot beat this KOA. Easy entry from interstate, friendly service, well spaced sites, very well maintained. It's close to the highway but noise was minimal during the overnight/sleeping hours. Great level sites, didn't need to unhook for the night. We didn't use the shower or laundry facilities so can't comment on them.

     

USI RV Park

Wichita, Kansas

Date of Stay:

For an overnight stop, or for staying in the Wichita area this is a really nice campground. It's not a destination park, but if you're just needing a place to stay it is great! Quiet but convenient to the highway. Very secure. The grounds are clean and well maintained with grassy areas around the periphery of the camping area. Playground equipment is new and nice for the little ones. Large grassy area for pet walking. And quite a bit of shade. The owners/employees are super friendly and helpful. We were very impressed.

Date of Stay:

We stayed in Walnut River, in the Big Oak section in a water/electric only site. The positives: able to reserve for sites online through the KDWP site, with many sites to choose from. Wonderful large fully shaded sites in the Big Oak section with a walking bridge over to the very nice sandy clean-water beach. The walking trails are nice sidewalks along the pretty wooded stream area. Utilities worked well, and though it was crowded on the weekend we found it to be pretty quiet. The negatives: the campground had quite a bit of litter probably from endless strong Kansas winds and the fact that state funding for maintenance has been cut. Also, the restroom/shower was quite awful. Very very dirty and needing attention. Next time we will for sure stay in a campsite with full hookups and avoid the showerhouse altogether. The shower house at the beach was a little better, and the new one by the playground was closed due to vandalism and need of repair. But we will definitely happily return to this campground. It's a great place to camp with wonderful shade.

This is a beautiful little lake in western Kansas. We stayed here a couple years ago and again had the opportunity on our way to Colorado to stay here recently. I can't say enough about how peaceful and lovely this area is. Our kids rented canoes at the beach house, then swam at the beach area. The Beach House is a little market/rental building that stocks quite a bit of camping supplies. Lots of shade around the spring-fed lake, which sits down in a basin/canyon surrounded by limestone bluffs. The last time we were here I didn't use the shower house. This time we did use it and it is pretty typical of state park bath houses. Adequate, with private toilets and shower stalls. It took the water at least 5 full minutes, maybe longer, to get warm. Just when I was getting ready to give up, the water turned warm. There really isn't a good dry place to dress after showering. But, everything worked and we still thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here, wishing we could have stayed another night or two.

Date of Stay:

We really enjoyed this campground. Beautiful setting on the river. Ample space in most sites. The sites right on the river look small, but we saw very large rigs using them and they fit well. Bathhouse is small, but very clean. The owners and staff could not be any nicer or more helpful. Very friendly folks. We caught lots of fish in the river and watched river rafters. Great jeep trails close by. You just can't beat this area for scenery and stuff to do. Close to Salida, which is a cute little town. Just a wee bit of road noise. So a 9 not a 10,but we would stay here again.

     

Pueblo KOA

Pueblo, Colorado

Date of Stay:

This is a nice park for an overnight stay and the owners/staff are very helpful and friendly. The park is clean, the sites are nice with some shade available. We stayed here a couple years ago and found it to be a quiet nice place to stay. This time, however, we didn't use our AC because it was only about 50 degrees outside.... and subsequently we were bothered by train/traffic noise. So the next time we're looking for an overnight spot, we may or may not choose this park depending on our need to use the AC. Other than that, great park.

Kansas State parks now have on-line reservations available through their website which makes them much more appealing to those traveling from a distance. We found this to be a very nice campground with large well-maintained campsites with an abundance of shade. There are several different camping areas within this state park with varying amenities in each area. But every area looks to be very nice. Many sites are right next to the water of Melvern Lake, which is a beautiful lake with nice clear water. The sites in our area (Black Jack) had a wonderful shoreline with small pebble gravel and not mud. There are nice showers within short driving distance to each area, and each area has modern flush restrooms available within walking distance. This was our first time camping at Eisenhower State Park and it will not be our last. Modern playground, large clean beach, cabins and yurts, large boat ramp with boat slip rental.
