Sites 1 & 2 in this section are full hook-up but gravel surface. Not all sites are concrete but all sites do have covered picnic shelters with new BBQ grill and concrete tables and benches. All sites are extra wide and deep so there is plenty of room for additional vehicles. Restrooms in lower Santa Fe Trail are clean and have clean showers, upper section is a pit toilet. Roads are paved. Camp hosts are okay. Be aware of COE regulations on the use of their facilities, especially the ones NOT published on their website. This is a quiet, pleasant campground with access to the lake. We enjoyed our stay in this campground and would return. We camped at Santa Fe Trail COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

One grocery in Council Grove, two fuel stations with diesel. The drive to historic sites is worth the effort. Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve (get lucky might see the Bison herd) and Eisenhower Museum, Library, Chapel and Childhood home are worth the time and effort. Council Grove is a key site on the Santa Fe Trail.

Great campground. Beautiful lake. Asphalt roads and paved campsites. Situated for easy back in. Long sites, covered picnic tables. New covered grills. Small marina with boat slips. No beach but beach available elsewhere around lake. Small playground. Lots of shade and very clean. Quiet, and campsites are spacious. View of lake from every site, most sites lakeside. Town of Council Grove is about 1.5 miles away and a delightful little historic town. Most sites level. Few are not. Many reservable. We loved this campground. Will go again for sure. We camped at Santa Fe Trail COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very clean campground through the Army Corps of Engineers. There are only two sewer hookups (sites 1 and 2). It was very peaceful and on the outskirts of town. The on-site managers were fantastic. The sites are spacious and level with lots of trees. We also liked that it was gated. We had no dislikes about this park. We would stay there again. We camped at Santa Fe Trail COE in a Travel Trailer.
