Level gravel pull through spots. couldn't get on the wifi... Airstream wiht our computers but ipads did fine. We visited some friends who were staying in the park which contributed to the excellent rating. $36 with PA, $40 without. Park was full, we had the last space. Behind Super 8 motel, it was a clean park and the full timers were clean and picked up. The spots are close together. It was close to Topeka and hte cost reflected that. - Jim Lee

It advertised cable. There was cable but they brought to you in a plastic bag. The lady explained how to hook it up. If you're looking for cable, don't come here.
We had 50 amp electric in a site behind the office. - TT543

At first does not look like much, but it has a good layout and turned out to be very nice campground. There are 8 "Big Rig" sites (58-65). Pull throughs (sites 1-37) and some back in sites. Our site 33 was just long enough for my 36' motor home and toad without unhooking. (sat friendly). Many of these sites have a slight drop off at the end. There are also deluxe patio sites. Sites are gravel/dirt with grass in between. FHU's good. Sewer a bit to the rear, may need extension if your bay is mid rig. Good Verizon and T-Mobile signal. Wifi - (5 Ghz 30 Mps down.) 2.4 Ghz was hard to get on, 5 Ghz did drop often. Many satellite friendly sites also treed sites. Propane on site. Grass areas for rover and a K-9 park. I did need a board under one wheel to level, but did not see any other rigs with boards. Camp store open to 8pm. Laundry rooms are in two places ($1.50 wash). There are cabins and tent areas. Playground, fishing ponds, saltwater pool, exercise rooms. There is a storm basement in main building. You may not want to trust your GPS to get here, some roads may have changed. There is one way in on a loose gravel road, and another over paved roads. If you call they will give directions over the paved roads. Campground near interstate, but not noisy. We thought it was a fine KAO for our overnight stay. - wtravlr1

The road in is gravel and dusty but once you reach the campground entrance it looks park like. We had a deluxe pull through site that had plenty of room and was very nice. Site was situated so we got shade from out camper in the afternoon, very nice. Lots of full time residents but sites were well maintained. Lots for kids to do but still quiet at night. We would definitely stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

Stayed here one night on our trip home. Dirt road to get to the Campground, gravel site not level, close to one another, barely enough room for our vehicle. Dog park okay but fairly far away over a small bridge. Okay for one night but I wouldn't want to stay longer. There were storms that night and when we checked in we weren't told about what to do in case of a tornado and if there was a tornado shelter. Being in tornado alley they really should inform campers what the process is. Are there sirens, do they come and blow their horns, where the shelter is, are pets allowed etc etc. In addition there was a lot of flooding around the camp sites due to the storm. - Michelin

Great park easy to get to and very quiet. Lots of rabbits for my dog to salivate over. We were going to stay one week and decided after being there to stay six weeks. Great place. Lyndon was a great town. - Frank Farquhar

Very nice, clean RX park. Plenty of space between sites to put out awning. Friendly owner. Great wifi for anywhere let alone a RV park. Has a tornado shelter, small fishing pond and horse shoe pits. Hope to be able to stay here again. - Jweb98

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. - Geom

This is a roomy state park with lots of grass and shade trees. There are sites of all sizes for both large rigs and smaller equipment. This a good park for an overnight stay or longer term. Swimming, marina, basketball, disc golf course, volleyball, tetherball. Equipment for check out at park office. It is clean and staff is friendly. This is on our "top ten" list. Price listed includes full hookups. - ksgypsy

This campground is on Pomona Lake 24 miles south of Topeka. The campground is absolutely gorgeous with lots of trees and very spacious campsites. Every site is shaded. There are several different camping areas and some are primitive, but there are many full hookup sites and even more water/electric sites available. The sites in Burning Heart area are full hookup and there are several very long pull through sites that are quite nice. Most of the sites have only a view of the water, but there are a few water front sites near the marina. And several sites have no view of the water at all, but the wooded surroundings are very beautiful. We didn't use the shower facilities but the building looks very new and modern. We will definitely camp here again. The only reason I didn't give a 10 is that the cellphone service was marginal. Our wireless Internet card did work there however. - benidew

This is a very nice COE park. There are several COE campgrounds in this section of Pomona Lake and all looked very good. Rate reflects a Golden Age discount for .50 amp, water, and sewer. There are only twelve of these sites and quite a number of electric and water sites. Contractors seemed nice and informative. We would definitely stay here again. - PALPJL

Very nice County Park in Topeka. Mostly level gravel back-ins, 30/50 amp and water sites. No sewer. Friendly people and excellent park surrounding Lake Shawnee with hike/bike trails, fishing, boat rentals, kids playgrounds etc. Laundry and clean restrooms. Would stay here anytime! - teepee51

We were traveling through the area in a motorhome towing a popup so we had 2 sites right on the lake. Beautiful area with awesome bike trail around the lake and rental bikes available. Staff was super nice. Wish we had more time to enjoy the park. Lots of play areas for children while still being peaceful. Definitely on our top list when passing through again. Food at Boss Hawg's barbecue 5 miles away was good. - busyteach

This quiet campground is on a beautiful lake ten minutes from downtown Topeka and surrounded by residential! All big rig friendly level back-in gravel sites have table and two rvs share an electrical and water post with 50amp service, so when park is full rigs would be close to each other. Good local over air television, strong Verizon 4G, no Wi-Fi and dump location is easily accessible across road from office. Overall a great city park that is clean with beautiful views. Will definitely stop again when in Topeka! - RJourney

Booked 4 nights on the way home to NC from a trip to the Dakotas. Very nice park. Paved roads and sites, spacious sites with grass between, level sites, good bathrooms, convenient to I-70, full hookups with wi-fi and cable TV. There is a gate at the entrance with a code for night time access. Not sure why, seemed to be an OK neighborhood. Only complaint - not a tree for shade anywhere. Weather was warmer than we expected for mid-Sep. Expected that Topeka would be a more upscale town, but sadly the downtown area was totally dead on a Sat afternoon. Maybe everyone was at a college football game. Certainly recommend staying here, but not for 4 nights - not enough to do. - NC Bill

What a great stop! Big rig friendly with large sites featuring perfectly manicured grass and picnic table. Gated entry, swimming pool and restaurant. Satellite, wifi and Verizon all fully operational. Easy pull though sites. - Russ60

We stopped at Deer Creek Valley RV Park for an overnight during travel from West to East. The staff is very friendly and helpful with recommendations and directions. As previous reviewers have stated, the park is clean, well-manicured and nice spacing on roads and between sites. This is a great stop for either an overnight or extended stay. They truly deserve the "top" review grades. - Golfgirl

Beautiful view of the lake. Difficult to find. Was on the opposite side of the lake from where our gps took us. Once there it was wonderful. Lantern hooks and fire rings were heavy duty. Toilets with plumbing throughout the grounds were basic but clean and well lit. Did not use showers. Paved roads, gravel sites and lots of grassy areas. Dump site nice and large, easy to use - Minniediver

This is a Corp of Engineer by-reservation-only group camp site. The facility will handle smaller TTs and pop-ups, but it was probably designed primarily for tent camping because the dirt pads aren't long and would not support heavy weight. All but three sites are dry camping. Those three co-located sites do have electric/water. It's family friendly. There is a playground, basketball net, grass ball field, volleyball court, and a picnic pavilion. Sites have fire rings and picnic tables. There is a bath/shower house and a boat ramp is nearby. The campground is isolated from the rest of the COE RV parks in the area so it provides nice privacy for groups. My rating is based on like Group Site facilities. Golden Age/Access cards are accepted for a discount. - RLM
Jun 2015 - $11.00
There is a mixture of tents and RV sites with a mixture of 30 amp only or 30 amp with water or there is 30/50 amps with water and sewage. Most sites are fairly level. Sites are clean. - From the Kites

This is a decent COE campground that would probably fit well into a few days or weekend of camping. But there were some negatives that chipped away at my rating. It has good paved access roads, a fair amount of space between well maintained sites, partial shade thru out, picnic tables, fire rings, and grills. There is a nice playground for the kiddos. The sites will accommodate all rigs. Its half 30A electric and half dry camping sites. The dry sites are the same size and design as the RV sites and would please most tent campers who don’t want electricity. There are only four or five pull thru sites which in my opinion doesn’t rate as a place with pull thrus. 3G cell, satellite, and TV signals are good. There are also some 50A sites, but they are occupied by custodians or volunteers during the season. The negatives are that the majority of sites have some degree of fore and aft level issues. It is hard to understand, that in this mostly flat campground in a flat state like Kansas, they couldn’t get that right. The four restroom buildings don’t have shower capabilities. That is in a separate building in the campground which is some distance from the majority of camp sites. The lighting in all of the buildings are on day/night sensors. During the day the inside of the buildings are dark. The only water faucets where you can connect a hose to fill tanks is at the bathroom buildings and that takes a long hose. Handicap sites probably don’t meet ADA compliance since they are gravel and won’t accommodate a wheelchair. Not to mention that they aren’t even marked as handicap on the site posts. The voltage was on the low side, but it is a 30A campground. The fee/info booth is completely closed on Tuesday and Wednesday despite there being an abundance of paid attendants to man it 7 days a week. I have a hard time rating this CG. It has served my purpose for being here and I got my monies worth. As mentioned, it’s a decent CG, but if you are familiar with the higher quality of COE campgrounds then this one rates somewhat below that standard. Access and Golden Age discounts are honored here. - RLM

Cedar Ridge CG is part of the COE Bloomington East complex. Our site was C007 and was a wide/long pull through with 50A Electric and water. There are plenty of long back-in 50/30A sites as well. There are no sites right on the lake but some of the back-ins were within a couple of hundred feet. Our Sprint Service was really good in the park (was told Verizon was good also). Broadcast TV will get you about 25 channels. Some geocaches in the area. Good-sized lake with several boat ramps. $11 Rate is with the America the Beautiful Senior Pass. - Calibrateguy

Great Park, The facilities are clean. Quiet next to Lake but still not far from Lawrence and about 45 minutes to Kansas City. Only drawback is no sewer but dump is right outside Park and is free. - USAF1

This is our second time to visit this park and we will probably come back should we visit the area again. The only drawback is that it is 20 miles from Lawrence, but if you just want to relax and chill, this is the place. Dump station is well situated on the property for incoming and outgoing traffic. We camped here in a 45 ft. motorhome and the sites can handle us. - travelingstar
