Flat open prairie. Wind never stopped while we were there but could be nice otherwise. Trees were not mature so wouldn't count as shady. Well spaced large sites. Lake level way down due to drought. An OK park. If you are traveling on I-70 check out a city park with hookups in Ellis. If we were to return to this area we would choose this one over Cedar Bluffs. Sheltered with mature trees, looked nice but we learned of it after. We camped at Cedar Bluff State Park - Bluffton Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park. We arrived after the park office had closed. The campground host was very helpful. A beautiful lake and area. We chose a "Prime" site which provided water, electric and lake front view. Large sites with little shade. Bathrooms were very clean. The only downside to the bathrooms was the lack of some type of ventilation to move the air within. Even a giant exhaust fan would have helped. We would definitely stay here again. We used this as an overnight stay. It's about 20 miles from the interstate. We camped at Cedar Bluff State Park - Bluffton Area in a Tent Trailer.
Very nice park, huge lots with plenty of room for the family. Very clean and friendly staff. We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend, they even had a nice small fireworks show over the reservoir one night. Enjoyed seeing the small towns surrounding the park; we especially enjoyed the town of Ellis. We will stay here again. I would suggest reservations; I heard the park is crowded on the weekends.

Rate above is based on W&E only. There is an extra charge for sewer. The sewer sites are reservable and often filled on weekends. The W&E sites in Wagon Rut Campground, the section we stayed in, were huge, gravel, pull through and excellent for family play. This is a fishing lake so lots of campers with boats. Nearest towns are about 15 miles so bring food and entertainment. Quiet during the week but busy park on weekends. It is always windy in western Kansas so bring a kite. Friendly park staff willing to answer questions and offer ideas for scenic views. We camped at Cedar Bluff State Park - Bluffton Area in a Motorhome.
We found this to be a very nice well kept campground. Everyone was very helpful and nice. My only complaint was that the showers seemed to only have cold water. Other than that a very nice stay. We camped at Cedar Bluff State Park - Bluffton Area in a Tent Trailer.
This is a really nice campground. The sites are huge, well-maintained, and level. Park personnel are very nice. There are several campgrounds on each side of the lake - we stayed in the Broken Spur area. Nice tent camping areas. The one problem we encountered there was that there was no hot water in the showers. The staff told us the next morning that they would look into it. We would stay here again, assuming the hot water is fixed! We camped at Cedar Bluff State Park - Bluffton Area in a Travel Trailer.
