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.

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.

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!

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.

This was my first stop in living in my camper and I was very pleased with the park. It was clean and quite. While the mobile home park adjacent to the park is older it was quiet. It may not be the most scenic place but I would highly recommend it to others. Staff was great and shower/bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. The washer and dryers worked great and inexpensive. The only negative is a burned out camper still sitting in the middle of the park. No watersports anymore also. I stayed 2 weeks.

We stayed here only one night. We came for the Boot Hill museum and the casino. This campground is located next to a lake and the area is designed as a seasonal water sports club that has a number of year round RV's on site that are only occupied during the warmer months. Plus there are a number of year round residents in Mobile Homes. They are in the process of expanding also. Staff was very friendly and gave us no squawk when we told them we wouldn't be leaving until late evening on check out day. Don't go here hoping to get wet in the lake as with many parts of Kansas we are entering our third year of drought and the lake is completely dry as is the Arkansas river that runs next to the lake. Overall it's not a bad area and we would stay here again. We camped at Water Sports RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
