Very clean park. Even in heavy rain, there were few puddles and mud. Large sites with nice grass in between. The staff was helpful and friendly. FAST WiFi. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We thought this place was a great CG to stop. Restrooms are very clean. The parking spots, while close together, were plenty long for our big 5-wheel and the truck. The young man who checked us in was very nice and hospitable. The wifi is very strong, unlike many parks we have stayed in. Even though we only stayed one night it will definitely be a place we will come back to. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean level sites. Full hookups very nice young man checked us in. I will always use this park when coming home to decorate graves at Memorial day. Nothing better anywhere in the area. This is better than Chapman or Salina. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here as an overnight while eastbound on I 70. Wanted to visit the Eisenhower Presidential Library and this was located approx. 2 blocks away. The young man that met us was very polite and cordial. No paperwork to register, just provide cash and you were in. He escorted us to our site. Had a very long, level,gravel pull thru with 50 amp plug and the ability to pick up a good satellite signal. The park is very dusty, has a fair amount of permanent residents, but it seems tidy enough. Sites are a bit close. It's a fair stop for an overnight. No security issues. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Motorhome.

Be sure to take advantage of the delicious chicken dinner at the Brookville Hotel on the north side of I 70. It is served in the manner of an old fashioned Sunday Dinner and it is DELICIOUS! Well worth the effort to disconnect the toad for the 2 mile trip up there!

Manager (owner) met us at the motorhome in the driveway to check in. The office is closed on Saturday and Sunday, but it didn't take him long to meet us. Escorted us to our site. As others have said, the sites in the upper level are very long (and level in the back and middle of the site. Wifi worked great ( but there weren't many of us here). Gravel roads and sites, fhu and the utilities worked well. Closest park to Eisenhower Library. Very happy with this park. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Motorhome.

A good place to stay while visiting the Eisenhower museum. The pull through sites in the upper area are very long. The roads are easy to navigate. The wifi worked well. The train horns seranaded us throughout the night but were not too bad. The upper sites are open and the satellite worked well. The lower sites, where mostly long term campers stayed, are wooded and the satellite probably would not work. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Motorhome.

Visit the Eisenhower Museum. Notice the old very large homes along the road from the freeway to the park. An old town with some character.

Great location to visit Eisenhower Museum. The back of the campground opens up into wide, long spacious pull through sites. Plenty of space for our big rig with tow car hooked up. Open sky for satelite. Verizon was strong. We were led to our space. All gravel roads and sites. We had full hookups. Oh .........and the train horns weren't loud at all, way off. But where in the plains can you camp without trains?? We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed Eisenhower Museum. We were told it's getting a major update next year and it needs modernization. Had dinner at Brookville Hotel which is not a hotel at all. Fried chicken dinner and all the fixes for one price, good home cooking.

At first glance I was a little apprehensive but the service was quick and friendly. He guided us to our site. We have full 50 amp service for our 43' Winnebago Tour. It's on dirt but it's clean. There's grass in front of us for the dog. We have satellite tv. We're very happy with our pick. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Motorhome.

We called the day before to make a reservation but just received a response to leave a message, but the answering service was full. We did receive a return call and were told to just come in to the campground on arrival. There was no one in the office, we filled out an envelope and deposited our fee and went to a campsite. Place was very quiet, no one around. Site had water and electric, no sewer. One 30 amp receptacle in box, no breaker. Had to plug in hot. We watched other campers come in, same as us and some found a site and some left. We stayed for one night, never saw the owners and left the next morning. No frills, no service but had a quiet night, can't ask for anything more. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice, quiet, clean campground, conveniently located to the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. Most sites are level and treed. Water pressure and electricity were good. Excellent WiFi and dozens of cable channels. Host was helpful and lead us to our site. We would stay there again. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We came for the Eisenhower Museum and Library ... it was wonderful. The Museum parking lot is large enough for several RV's so we went to the Museum on the way into town and then onto the Covered Wagon Campground; we didn't even disconnect for the night. There is a Chinese restaurant about 1 1/2 blocks across the street from the campground.

We arrived in the afternoon and the office was closed. I called the number posted on the office door and the manager was at the office in about 10 minutes. He assisted in locating a site. I only used water and power. I dumped as we left. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I pulled into the campground and found that the office was closed. They do have a sign about doing a self-registration. All one needs to do is select a site, complete a self-registration envelope, enclose a check or cash and drop into a locked mailbox. The owners must be very "trusting souls". Most of the shaded sites are occupied by long-term people. The rest either has no shade or no water. At least it is posted which sites have no water available. It is a few blocks away from the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library & Museum. For what it is, the campground is handy and serves its purpose. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Motorhome.

As others have stated, you never see anyone, but everything works, quite well. The sites in the back are very spacious and much more comfortable than the ones up front. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an old park with lots of people who seem to be staying long term. Only problem with them was one person had a very "yappy" dog. We were never able to make reservations or even find out if the park was open this late in the year. When we were there never saw any management, just put our check in an envelope. Our site was pull-thru and level. Restrooms were old, but clean. WiFi was great and Cable TV was superior - thus my 5 rating for service. We camped at Covered Wagon Campground in a Motorhome.
