I stayed here 3 nights in site 34 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. I stayed here because it was close to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve which I wanted to visit. Another lovely COE campground on a lake with lots of grass and shade trees and quite quiet. It is one of several around Council Grove Lake. This campground has water and electric sites some with 50 amp power (along with a few scattered electric only sites) and takes reservations for some but not all the sites. The sites are paved and have a paved covered patio with concrete table and benches, a covered grill, a grill table, and also a fire pit. Very swanky! There is a day use swimming beach and a boat ramp. The sites themselves are huge and many back right up to the lake -- some even back up to a beach area separate from the swimming beach but those sites are walk in only. There is a tent area that is an island connected by a causeway. Everything was quite well maintained except the hiking trail. The lake was quite clean. I was there on a weekend and the campground was full with lots of family groups but never felt crowded. My site was the only one that didn't get lots of shade during the day. The sites that aren't on the water are a little closer together but still very nice. My only complaint is that my site wasn't particularly level and it looked like many of the others weren't either. But nothing terrible. Water and electric worked well and the dump station was convenient to use. Interior roads were very easy to navigate. Verizon was excellent. Council Grove is just down the road and is a very interesting historic town. No flying bugs but there are lots of tiny ticks so if you go on a walk go prepared. We camped at Richey Cove Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, clean campground with a swimming beach. Some sites have 50 amp, most have 30 amp. Friendly gate attendant called us before our arrival to let us know she had to leave at a certain time due to an emergency. We had a good Verizon signal here. The campground layout was fairly confusing to us at first - it could use some signage for directing you to sites. Most sites are right on the lake. We were surprised by the absence of bugs during our August stay. We camped at Richey Cove Park in a Travel Trailer.
