Terrific value in this little park! Nice and quiet. Beautiful sunsets over the lakes. Police patrol several times a day. Hookups are all newer and in good shape - they are locked until you pay. Call when you arrive and an officer will come out to take payment, or you can stop at City Hall during business hours. It was pretty empty in late October, but you'll probably want reservations in the summer months. The website has all the info. you'll need. Half the sites are extra long pull-throughs, including 2 that must be at least 150 feet. We camped at Idle Hour Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

There is an (unmarked) laundry available - call the city hall for info. I was told that fishing was good in the lakes. Several green heron and 2 cormorants were hanging around, so it must be! Get a hamburger at MJ's in Altamonte - delicious!

Yes, you're reading that right, $10 a night for full hookups. There are two separate sections, the shower house is near one side of the lake and a smaller building with just a sink and toilet is near the other. The shower house was clean, but kind of an odd configuration with both showerheads in the same place, so no real privacy although it's such a small campground that might not be an issue. Cement floors, toilets in that building had shower curtains for doors. Only a handful of sites were occupied when we were there. Very peaceful and quiet. There's a fairly large frisbee golf course at the park so there's lots of room to walk, and the lakes have turtles that can be spotted if you sneak up on them. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, it's a viable option in the southeast corner of Kansas if you're passing through or just want some peace and quiet for a few days. We camped at Idle Hour Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Echo the other reviewer's comment about MJ's. The burgers are huge, and deliciously sloppy. There's a Walmart in Parsons about 12 miles north if you REALLY need one, but little things can be procured at small stores just a mile or two north of the campground.
