Average moderate price CG. Pull thru site was sorta short. Wi-Fi generally good but did occasionally drop out for a few minutes. Strong winds (I think) knocked out electricity for about half an hour. TV must be set on "air" , not "cable" even though hooked up to park system. As a base point to visit Dodge City and surrounds, Water Sports is good enough. I would stay here again. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Boot Hill Museum only a few blocks from CG but pricy to go thru. All but 3 buildings are recreations. Some interesting, free statues in town. Convenient to Old Fort Dodge.

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.

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.

We stopped there for one night on our way to Colorado. I reserved online In the morning of the same day we were coming in. They didn't get my reservation. I guess we were lucky there were still some sites available. Some sites are very long pull-thrus,they are in a field so no shade. Some shorter pull-thrus have some trees. Not a great place but It is fine for a one night stay to visit Dodge city. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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!

This was the friendliest campground we have been to in awhile! Very well maintained and helpful! With the Kansas drought it has affected their water but that did not bother us. This campground has been in business for many years and they know how to take care of their guests! They had very nice lots with plenty of room for our 5th wheel and it's slide outs! We will be back to stay again! We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are grass, dirt and gravel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Sites are level. Not a bad place for spending one night. Seems to be a lot of construction workers. For the price it is a great value. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't be fooled by name water has been gone a long time. Short narrow sites, 45ft. Good electric and water. Most sites are pull throughs. Close to tourist sights, restaurants, and groceries. Quiet park lots of grass and few bugs. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

We spent one night in a pull thru space with our 36' 5th wheel and long bed truck connected. Sites had some grass but mostly dirt. The lake is completely dry, most likely due to drought. Employee in the office was very helpful regarding things to see and do. No annoyances at all. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There is some RV parking by the train next to the visitor center. Since it is early in the season, we were able to leave our rig there while we stopped there and visited Boot Hill and the Wyatt Earp statue. A trolley is available.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. This is not a park you would stay in for more than a few days. There is so much to see in Dodge City that you would want to be here at least 2 nights. You drive through a very seedy area, but the park is nice enough that it really doesn't matter. The owners are very nice. The Wi-Fi was excellent, also satellite reception perfect. They have some grass/gravel sites, a few trees and lots of room to walk the dog. We would stay again should we be in the area. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

The best thing about this park is it's proximity to downtown Dodge. Just blocks to downtown. The park is reasonably clean and well maintained. The operators are friendly and helpful. You do have to drive through a older lower class part of town with mobile homes to get to the park, but once you arrive the WiFi works great and the rates are reasonable. The on site laundry has plenty of newer washing machines to take care of your laundry needs. The adjoining lake that inspired the park's name has succumbed to the drought that has been affecting the great plains and has completely dried up. Not much the park owners can do about that. So leave your swimsuit and fishing pole at home. Picnic tables are provided at most sites, and although there are several poorer condition long-termers, I was quite comfortable here. This is not a resort park but unless you are a appearance snob this park will meet your needs for a place to stay in Dodge. I would stay again without any qualms.
