Water Sports Campground is good for what it is. It is a reasonably priced parking place with full hook-ups. We stay there one night going south and returning north each year. Sites are long and wide. We don't have to unhook. It is dependable, but not pretty. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for two weeks and would return again. Although I read several poor reviews I found this park to be much better than expected. Even though they advertise cable they do not have it and no discount. Wifi was not dependable. The sites were extremely large pull throughs with gravel. Right in the middle of town very convenient to stores and points of interest. The office staff are very friendly and helpful. Nice laundry facilities. We were there during dodge days and had no trouble with noise. There is no fenced area for pets but lots of room to walk them. There are hardly any trees for relief from the sun. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Just swung in here to spend the short evening with power hook-up only.

Not easy park to find and thought about turning away couple times.. dirt road and neighborhood is not appealing. Parked on grass surface between gravel paths in and out. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Worked for quick overnight stop, but would certainly try to arrange space elsewhere... but not sure there is better campground in the Dodge City area... will certainly try to find / reserve one next time.

No frills park, no problems with full hook ups. Good, level pull through site. We were in the field section. Wide open and good satellite reception. Friendly and helpful employees in the store, which is stocked with basic needs. Clean and reasonable laundry room. Only issue is with people flying down the road that divides the section. A lot of long term rigs, but well maintained. Wifi good during the day, but slows once people come home from work. Priced right. Close enough to Dodge City. Would stay here again without hesitation!

The best thing about this park is the wifi. The second best thing I can say is the staff is friendly. Other than that it is the worst rv park I have ever stayed at. I made the reservation on-line based on what the web site said. I did not feel safe here. Cars travel through or should I say speed through the park even though it says private street. People let their dogs and cats run loose and there are dog piles all over. This is an old park with mobile homes that are run down. Nothing has been maintained in years - it needs a of TLC. The pull through sites are extremely short - a 38 foot motorhome barely fits. The sites are also narrow that it is difficult to park a car next to your unit. There is no cable TV. Do not stay here - you have been warned! We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

There are permanent residents, but never felt unsafe, this is the working section of town, but every one friendly and working for a living. You drive through a Mexican portion of the town to get to the park. Not a big deal for us, it felt like any other town with lots of business and bakeries and restaurants. This park is very close to the Historic section of Dodge City. The lake is dried up, so don't count on seeing a lake. I liked the RV park because of its very close proximity to downtown Dodge City. Our motor home was not towing a car, and when I asked the lady at the office for recommendations to nearby restaurants she offered us the camp ground van for us to drive to the restaurants'. Now, that is a great service. Office staff was very friendly, and would remind us every time I went into the office about the free coffee was available for me. Office lady also told us to feel free to get change at the office for the laundry facilities. Laundry room had an iron to use. Wife said laundry room had three washers and two dryers. I would stay there again, when visiting the Dodge City Historic area. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very disappointed in this camp ground. It is in a very bad neighborhood. The whole camp ground just looks trashy. When I had a problem with the internet, the staff basically threw up their hands and said not our problem, maybe we will get it fixed tomorrow. Be careful how long you say you are going to stay. If you are not happy with things, there are no refunds! A lot of the occupants here are 'living' here. If you are looking for a friendly campground, I suggest you move on.

In 1974, this must have been a primo vacation spot! That's the impression we get from all the old mobile homes - once upon a time. This park had good utilities. The facilities were so nice and clean. The road in is not so great. Sites are pretty small but level. Sadly the lake is a victim of the terrible Kansas drought. The owners tried to pump water in, but the drought won. It's close enough to bike or walk to the attractions. The camp hosts are so friendly and are just glad to meet you. We didn't see the aforementioned negative signs. The trains are close. The laundry room is very clean and had 6 high efficiency washing machines. They appear to be expanding the RV park, so perhaps in time, the mobile homes will be cleaned up or phased out. We did not feel unsafe at all. Everyone we met was friendly and kind. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Some 'lake views' with grass, more with dusty gravel. For $22 this park is great value. Staff pleasant, bathrooms clean. Unfortunately lake is almost empty due to drought. Slight odor from feed lots in the area, but was not a problem for us. Very quiet and close to town. After reading previous reviews we almost didn't check it out. Would stay again. Also has tent sites. Currently works in progress adding extra sites. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Run down and trashy. Power was inadequate and would continually fall below 100 volts. Would never stay here again. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Scary looking place. Lots of junky trailers and other permanent stuff. Bathrooms and showers are clean but outdated. Great WI-FI and cable. If they would clean up or kick out all the riff Raff this place would be nice. Don't know where the horrible smell is coming from, the lake? We would not stay again.

A gorgeous spot, and the staff was super nice. I didn't even know it was Good Sam so I missed the 10% discount, but hey, $18 for a lake front site! What's not to like. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This park had a number of eyesores and the lake next to it is so trashy and smelly that I would not set a foot in it. The water pressure is low and the park has that junkyard look to it. Staff were more than friendly and helpful but the grounds need a major overhaul. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Appears to be an older park with some trashy trailers. Close to Dodge City activities. Our site (#12) was barely enough for our big rig. During our visit, an offensive odor drifted from the processing plants. Friendly staff. Ask for AAA or Good Sam discount. We camped for one night.

A rather plain park; hosts were friendly and helpful. For the $19 rate, this is a suitable park. The biggest drawback was that the first row of sites is on a street that actually is used as a through street--traffic was obtrusive at times, and even school buses ran through in the a.m. and stirred up a lot of dust on the dirt road. We would have rated it higher had it not been for the traffic noise and dust. Sites are a bit short for longer rigs (ours is 42'); utilities were reliable and there are convenience items in the on-site store. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
