Nice campground on Milford Lake. Our loop had only 30 amp and water, no sewer. There is a boat ramp nearby and some shady spots. Rate reflects Federal senior pass. Be advised that the campground is located 11 miles from the interstate. We were told that 50 amp sites are at another park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have a Federal Parks pass, so rate was 1/2 off. There are only 5 sites with 50 amp, and is on a first come basis, no reservations. Sites are shady and there is a view of the lake from all sites. Will stay here again. Great value. Swim, fish and boat in the lake. Has boat dock. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used our National Park discount for the 1/2 price ($18 a night regular price) - stayed 2 nights. It was a wonderful, peaceful campground near a beautiful lake. We enjoyed our 2 night stay. Visited Junction City WalMart (very nice) to stock up. No 10 since it didn't have sewer. We enjoyed the park and would visit there again if we were in the area. Park has 4 showers near the entrance of the park. The bathrooms are clean and placed around the park. The hosts are very helpful. Lots of boats and great fishing apparently in the area. Located near Junction City on one of the state's largest lakes. Campsites located right on the lake if wanted. One loop has no facilities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very lovely little campground right on Milford lake. The camp hosts are super friendly and helpful. Most of the sites have some shade, many of the sites have almost total shade. And the lake is visible from every site. When we were there the lake elevation was up 9 foot from conservation level, and many of the campsites along the lake edge are now very near the shore making them smaller sites than normal. The shower house and toilets are new and really nice. There is a nice new playground also. The one negative, and it could be a deal-breaker, is that many of the sites are just impossibly small. The pull-through sites are perfect, but there are only five of them. When reserving, be very very careful about campsite size. It is mentioned for every site on-line. That being said, if you get one of the many larger campsites you will absolutely love this campground. We'll be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Mostly level sites for smaller units. There are only five 50 amp sites. Sites are gravel. There is a new shower house. Some sites are 1st come, 1st served and some can be reserved on line. COE contract folks very nice and helpful. Office hours are strange at entrance station- 7-8 AM and 5-10 PM. New shower building in the last year. Loop A has electric and water hook-ups. 50 amp sites are $19, 30 amp are $18. Card holders (seniors and disabled) get 50% discount. Well cared for with big trees and grass on Milford Lake, the largest lake in Kansas. We would return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent small campground. Mostly friendly long term campers staying here. Clean facilities, full hook-ups at every site, paved roads and sites with cut grass between. Long back-ins and decent sized pull-throughs. Sites are close together, but no more then at other private campgrounds. Very friendly staff. Good Wi-Fi. Park office is only open until 4:30, but there is a camp host to take care of late arrivals. Rate reflects a Passport America discount, which is good for just one night and cannot be reserved. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Owl's Nest Campground is the standard ALL campgrounds should strive for. This was the nicest RV Park we ever stayed in. Perfectly neat, all paved roads and sites, nicely landscaped and grass mowed. Everything worked properly, great WiFi, TV, etc. Owner and staff were "top-notch!" Bathroom and shower were spic and span! We only stayed one night due to traveling through but will certainly stay at Owl's Nest Campground again. Cannot say enough about how nice this campground is. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a well-cared for small RV park with paved roadways and paved, reasonably level sites. A majority of the units are seasonal, but they seem to have a few daily sites available most of the time. I would recommend reservations to be sure. The park is centrally located for visits to Fort Riley (US Cavalry Museum), Manhattan, KS and the Eisenhower Library and Museum. Cable TV gets many stations and the Wi-Fi works well. There is also a hard line web connection in the laundry room. There is just one unisex full bath, but even with the park full there hasn't been a long wait to use the facilities. We would stop here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The $15 rate reflects the P/A rate. This park is far enough off of I 70 so there is no road noise. The park is "sparkling" with blacktop drives and sites and grass everywhere else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for 3 weeks and found it to be a very nice park. There are full timers here and the short stay campers. Enjoyed the visit, made some new friends, visited the local attractions. Laundry facility is very clean. Fairly quiet park with freeway sounds being minimal. Would love to stay again if we go to the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here with PA in the only site that wasn't filled with long term campers. The free internet only worked for one computer, $5 if we both wanted on. The laundry is 2 & 2 and very clean. The people working here are very nice and helpful. There is a car wash next door that accommodates RV's. Short drive to town for an assortment of restaurants. Call ahead if you think you want to stop here. They need a pool! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We called Owl’ Nest RV Park a week prior to our arrival and were told that Passport America rates would be available if they were not full (no reservations for Passport members). When we arrived, we had to drive into the park on a very narrow entrance and once at the office we saw the “Sorry we’re full” sign. No thought to putting it our front. Getting back out of this place was a real challenge. All the campers were pretty much backed into very tight spots and appear to be homesteaders. I seriously doubt that had they had a vacancy our 40’ MH would not have fit anywhere. We have seen more spacious burger joint turn a rounds. They are close to the interstate (noise) and offer nothing for kids or pets. We went 13 miles west (towards Abilene) down I-70 and got a park with a pull through, wireless, free cable, swimming pool, good pet walk area and further away from interstate noise with our discounts (they offer several) we paid 25.20; $3.00 less than at the Owl’s Nest. We would not even consider this place for the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small park just off I-70 with associated noise. Also train tracks nearby; however, only heard 4 trains in 16 hours. Office opened intermittently, but camp host available and very friendly. Water pressure very high with a strong chlorine taste. Paved roads, narrow with some overhanging branches. Paved sites require some leveling. Wi-fi was slow but usable. Many sites taken up by long termers, but very nicely kept up. Strongly suggest calling for a reservation. Would stop here again for an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small park, 13 sites at the West end of JC right off I-70. Clean and well cared for. Some trees and tables at each site. Much more convenient than where we camped at Milford Lake in July. Camp host is nice girl, friendly and helpful. Sites are asphalt with small grass area at each site. Some highway noise but not bad. Both pull through and back in sites. A bit tight getting through but I did it in my 40 ft fiver. Elect., sewer, water good. Not much shopping in JC. There is a WalMart Supercenter, and auto parts stores and Ace Hardware, but any other major shopping is in Manhatton (20 miles). Good fishing at Milford Lake 10 miles away, and there is a great indoor gun range in JC for you shooters. We stayed a week. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This CG is very close to I-80 so road noise can be a problem. It is clean and appears to be very neat. The bathroom/shower, which is just off the laundry room and is uni-sex, is super nice. The one road is rather narrow. Most of the sites appear to be seasonal so there are very few sites available for overnighters. I'd suggest you call ahead to reserve a site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly campground and staff. Site is constantly improving and adding in new amenities. Very clean laundry and shower house. Easy access and convenience to interstate. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Paved interior roads and sites. We got the last site. #11. A couple guys came out and told us where to park. Have screwy u shape pull thrus. A little tight for a HDT and 35 ft 5th wheel. (60 ft combo) Won't want to be an longer to try to get around. Got about 80 TV channels and did pick up some "free" Wi-Fi". Did hear a train horn a couple of times. But for sleeping, ear plugs worked fine. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Newer Park with good paved roads and easy access. Close to I-70 so there is some noise but other than that, it is great overnight Park. Owners are making improvements and seem to care about their customers. Shopping and restaurants are one exit to the east. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It's crowded here, but the place is neat, clean and well taken care of. The owner is personable, friendly and helpful. It's pretty close to the highway and there is a train track nearby, so adjust accordingly. The access road is well-paved and the sites are level. Electricity was fine and the water was good. I gave it a 10 because of the helpfulness of the owner. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. Mostly full of full-timers. We got the last spot available for a motorhome. We wanted to stay longer but no site was available for an extra couple of days. Very clean and well maintained. No shopping within walking distance. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
They have very few overnight spots, but they are level, paved, and pull-through. The trees are small so we could manage with a 37' fifth wheel. There were many cable channels, but they charge extra for Wi-Fi. It is easy off and on from the freeway, and they even provide boards for your jacks if you don't have any. It is an excellent overnight stop, and we will return if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great little campground for short stays. We were there for five nights. Sites clean and well maintained. Only one small bathhouse, but clean. Mostly permanents, not overly friendly. Visit Fort Riley and Eisenhower Museum, if time permits. Junction City is a great little town, but not too much to do. See the new veterans monument and law enforcement statues. We will be back, if we are ever in the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here overnight and would use it again. There are not very many overnight spots. Should call in advance before showing up. The office is in the building next door. Had trouble finding it. It is all blacktopped. As said, there is only one restroom shower. Would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Most of the sites are longer term, but there are some for short term. This is a GREAT overnighter. The sites and roads are all hard surfaced and very level. All sites are full hookup with 50 AMPS. If the WIFI had a stronger signal, I would have rated it a 10 for overnighting. This is a newer campground and though small it is very clean and well maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good place for overnight, or a week like we're doing. Lots of long term residents, but very well kept rigs (professional skirting, tidy lawns, well kept sheds, etc.) and friendly folks. Only one family style bathroom that was very clean, but never had a problem getting into it. Our rig is small, so not sure how hard navigating with a bigger rig would be, but there are some larger fifth wheels here, so it must be possible. Close to highway and train tracks, but highway noise is negligible because the highway is elevated and trains didn't keep us awake. Wifi is supposed to be for monthlies only, but my husband explained he needs to work while on the road and they added us onto their secure network. Storm shelter right next door if that becomes necessary. Cute, well kept little park, very reasonable rates and near area historic attractions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at the West Rolling Hills section of the Milford Lake COE. This campground has two loops – A & B. Loop A has 15/50 amp electrical outlets, flush toilets and most of the non-reserved sites do not have a view of the lake. Loop B has 15/30 amp electrical outlets, vault toilets and a large number of non-reserved sites have a view of the lake. There was 1 non-reserved and 2 reserved sites that were pull-thrus. All of the interior roads were on asphalt and the sites were on packed gravel. The interior roads were very narrow considering that they were two way streets. Each loop had a narrow circle to turn around. The electrical voltage was good hovering around 120 volts. All sites had a fire ring and a picnic table. The electrical box and water was in the correct position. Check out time was 6 P.M. and the park attendances are duty at 5 P.M. There are two dump stations and the showers are near the entrance to the campground. The shower house contained 8 stalls per gender. The interior of the shower room was very dated and looked institutional. Not very appealing. The dumpsters were also located near the entrance to the campground. From any site it will be a long walk to the showers or to throw out your trash. Some of the sites were more level then others. There was a dip from the road in most of the sites. Depending upon the size of your rig and/or the length of the site, it could be tricky to get into. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. It was very quiet at night except when Fort Riley was on maneuvers. The price reflects the senior discount rate. We would come back here again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great campground. A little out of the way, but convenient to the Eisenhower Library in Abilene. Typical COE campground with nice large sites and great views of the lake. Fee reflects senior discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty typical COE campground, except that it has pretty low power. First time we've come across this in a COE campground. Sites are large, but not very level. For $9 with an access pass you can't beat it. Nice and quiet and a short 7 mile drive off the interstate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. 2/3 of the sites are reservable, and 1/3 are walk up only. The A loop has 50 amp electricity (in most sites), but it also has an extremely tight cul-de-sac turnaround with a tree in the middle--not recommended for fifth wheels longer than 32'. The B loop has 30 amp electricity (in most sites) and has three pull-throughs. Some of the B loop sites will accommodate big rigs. However, the B loop is lower ground and floods first when the water rises. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you stay here, do NOT stay in sites B-30, 31, 32, 33, 34...these are right next to each other and absolutely NO privacy. It's like your in a cul-de-sac, and you are right next to each other. The other sites have their own private areas though. This offered a nice lake to fish at, and they had a very small "beach" area and place to swim. I rated this lower because we were in site B-32 and at 12:45 in the morning I had to go to the people next to us who had 3 tents spread all over the place and ask them to please move from right behind our RV. There was no monitoring of how many tents/people were in our cul-de-sac. The people next to us ended up with 15 people in one site. Also, there is only 1 bath house that we could find and we had to drive to it--it was a LONG way away. Not sure what the campers used next to us for a bathroom! We would definitely NOT go back here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a Corps of Engineer campground and is our very favorite place to camp in Kansas. They have added more sites with hookups near the beach and added new restrooms in Loop B campground. Every campsite is spacious and grassy. And it's so quiet at night. All the campsites are right next to the lake, which is Milford Lake, the largest lake in Kansas. There is a marina right next to the campground. The showers are impeccably clean. Each individual shower has it's own dressing area with privacy doors. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the finest campground in Kansas. All sites are spacious grassy lakeshore sites. Most sites offer shade. Cove areas for swimming and watercraft anchoring. Showers are phenomenally clean and well maintained. There is a dump station, fish cleaning station, large beach area, free tent area, hiking trail. Nearby convenience store and marina. Junction City 5 miles away with shopping/fast food readily available. Reservations through "Reserveusa." We camped here in a camper.
