Good no-frills park, a bit on the expensive side. Campground host lady was fantastic! She was always available via phone. We decided to stay an extra night and she accommodated us no sweat. There were many residents: their sites were very well kept. Site was easy in-easy out, level, good power & water. All, including sewer, were conveniently located. Length of site was a bit tight, but RV and car did barely fit. Right next to the airport but not a lot of noise. - Julie and Ray

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

This KOA is rather typical in that the sites are close and the and space just long enough for our travel trailer and tow vehicle. A special nice touch is that this KOA is exceptionally well landscaped with two big ponds, lots of walking space and hey have done some upgrades and improvement since out last visit. This is a place we will stop again. Since it is Kansas, it is important to note this campground has a spacious storm shelter under the big distinctive red barn. - Judy Birchland

Big rig friendly with concrete sites. Easy access to I70. Dog park was large and provided dog bags. Cable, laundry, and wifi worked well. Easy to ride bicycle. Very clean and well maintained campground. - Fulltimersrv

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

We stayed one night en route from Independence, MO to Oklahoma City. We pulled in after closing and used the night registration they told us about by phone which was easy but I guess it's necessary to bring cash and in the right amount too. Unsure if checks accepted and no apparent way to leave a credit card. There is an abundance of pull-through sites, however most are not level (uphill going in). We found one or two in the first row that leveled out OK towards the end of the site. Our towed vehicle was on the downhill a little but OK for our size (25') motorhome. It might be easier to find a level site during the daylight! The bathrooms were satisfactory - not super clean or nice but not dirty either. Bathroom stalls have pull curtains which seems odd. It's easy on/off for US75. Some traffic noise but it quiets down during the night. Arrive before sunset so you can see and pick among the spaces. - MNroadie

It was on So. US Hwy 75, it was a little off the beaten path but on the Santa Fe Trail. It was clean and everyone was friendly. - Jim and Me

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

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

This is a sel-pay park with over 100 sites many of which have lake views and 50 amp. We did have a tough time finding a site large enough for our 40 foot fifth wheel but eventually managed to squeeze into 17 although we were facing the wrong way. Views of the lake were amazing and they had hiking trails and beaches. Really enjoyed our overnight here and would highly recommend it. Oh and the dumpstation was one of the cleanest we have ever seen. - Lee and Trace

The staff that registered us was outstanding in welcoming us and making it easy. That set the tone for a great stay! We loved the wonderful walking path!! - junmy3

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
Mar 2018 - $19.00
The one word that differentiates this campground above others is professional. Other than a handful of back-ins, all sites are the same: 70 foot long - level - concrete pads with a picnic table. W/E/S outlets are all bunched together in the middle of the pad in heated towers. I saw Class A Motorhomes with a small trailer in the back & a TOAD in the front of sites with room to spare. Very easy to navigate. Gates lock at night for security (they give you a code to get in). Brought propane to our site every day as needed. This may seem like a "parking lot with hook-ups", but they've turned it into a nice park with a dog-park area, a climbing tower for the kids, and nice laundry room. Bathrooms are hands-free and clean. Easy check-in and check-out after staying a month. Didn't like paying 16c/KwH for electric or paying to heat my water outlet when electric is that high. That was the only negative. Finally, if you've never been to Topeka, get ready for WIND. (not faulting the campground for something they can't control, but just be prepared). - RLT1

This is a small, but fairly new camp ground in Topeka. It is close to the highway, so there is some road noise. All streets and sites are concrete, and the sites are level with full hookups. Most are drive thru. Lawn was well maintained. Service was very good. I called to ask where I could purchase propane. They told me to put my propane tank at the front of my site, and they would come back, collect it, fill it, and return it. What a tremendous service! - rvrev2

The park has nice concrete pads with plenty of space. The only negative for us was staying when winds where 20 and gusting to 35. There are no trees or other things in the park to slow down those rock your trailer winds. Other than total open space the park is nice and we'll kept. Probably would not go again but only because of the open space. - snowbirdstoday

Nice campground. Not an easy access off of I-80, but easy off of I-335 & US 50. Has beach. Nice & quite. - be rob

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
Sep 2010 - $16.00
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
May 2013 - $9.00
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
