About Geom

We have always enjoyed camping and have done so in a variety of different equipment, anywhere from tent camping to now camping in a motorhome. The most important aspects of a camp site to us are the peace and quiet of an area and the abundance of access to natural features, such as trails. We also enjoy a certain amount of "urban" camping, with good access to in-city amenities and attractions.

Wallace State Park, Cameron, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Wallace State Park is a wonderful gem, just outside of Kansas City. It is a very well maintained state park, with great amenities throughout (fishing lake, wading beach, hiking trails). The park staff host several presentations daily during the on-season, on weekends. We camped at Wallace State Park in a Tent.

Pomona State Park, Vassar, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Pomona State Park is a wonderful state park with a lot of good amenities (lake, beaches, hiking trails, boat ramps). Our nightly rate reflects buying the KS annual camping pass, plus the KS annual vehicle permits (one per vehicle RV+Car), plus 3 utilities (50 amp elec, water, sewer) for a month.

We stayed here in February and really appreciated the ability to stay in a state park setting, with full hookups, in winter.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Even though we were one of the few campers here, this time of year, the park was regularly patrolled and it felt very safe. Staff was onsite during the week and readily available to answer questions or to help as needed.

The park is generally in good repair and well maintained. Some of the picnic tables, at a few sites, are in desperate need of replacement; but otherwise the park facilities were in good working order.

The park is pretty, quiet, and serene. Although we could hear (several) barking dogs from the surrounding private residences outside the park, there was otherwise no road noise, railroad tracks, etc to detract from the park's serenity.

There are quite a few campsites/camp-loops, ranging from water-front primitive camping to full-hookup RV sites available. We stayed in the Burning Heart camp-loop, which has full-hookups and is available for long(er) term stays.

The roads are paved, leading to gravel sites. Most sites were generally level and wide enough for an awning or slide-outs. There is not a lot of visual separation between the sites but they are well separated and about average for a state park (vs a tightly packed RV park).

Laundry facilities are available all year and the machines were in good working order, inside of a clean and usable laundry room.

The site had 50 amp service, a frost free (non-heated) hydrant, and sewer hookup. All utilities worked well. Other sites offer 30amp and water only, and there are several primitive campsites throughout. All sites have a fire-ring and a picnic table.

We had reasonable Verizon wireless internet access and had good ATT cellular access. Both were within 2-4 bars of LTE service (unboosted).

The park is located between two small towns, Pomona to the east and Lyndon to the west and offered very basic shopping and a few restaurants. Ottawa is the closest town of any size, offering traditional shopping and dining options. Kansas City is about an hour north.

Overall we really enjoyed our time here at Pomona State Park and will definitely be returning. We camped at Pomona State Park in a Motorhome.
