4 Parks near Farlington, Kansas

Beautiful park built by the CCC, we camped mid week and the campground was not full. No maps were available and it took time to locate where everything was located. There is a road that goes completely around the lake and campsites are spread out. Sites with electric only (no water) are on the side of the campground road closest to the lake, sites with electric and water on the opposite side.
We camped in Rocky Cove and there was no bathroom in the campground so you would have to walk or drive a short distance to Oak Point to get to them. Showers were OK, showing some wear and faucets were broken in some stalls. - Ocotillo

Nice state park. Well shaded spot. We were on a double concrete pad. - redavis

We were pleasantly surprised when we found this campground. This state park has ample tall shade trees for each site. Most sites also had concrete pads (newer sites in the park). Larger rigs will have problems here because of the site set up. We have a 32 foot travel trailer and had to move slowly. Overall, a very nice find in the middle of nowhere. - Mason Family

Spiffed up about 3 or 4 years ago. New showerhouse/restroom building with 2 generic stalls. It's starting to show it's age and use by folks that could care less about it. Was a bit dirty and buggy inside, but everything worked as it should.
Has 50/30/20 amp electrical pedestals in good shape. All sites are paved and fairly level. Water spigots are shared between 2 sites, 2 outlets per spigot.
Great dump station setup but might be a little tight turning for larger trailers, (as is the entrance to the park). Fairly quiet in the evening and overnight, but gets noisy about 6am from traffic. - bobojay

The June 2008 review is what I would say; we also have been coming here for many years and seen it progress. It now has 50-amp power, a picnic shelter, new picnic tables, and added a small bath house (two rooms, each with a toilet, lavatory, and a shower.) - carderh

Good spot if you need to be in Pittsburg. Only one other rig when we were there and then just one of the nights. Big paved lot and private with woods behind with a mobile home sales lot across the street. Some road noise to the north, else all quiet and peaceful. Totally open, no shade, but great for satellite dishes. No restrooms. You must be self-contained. Dump available and it is included in fee. - pubtopoub

I called and made reservations for 2 nights. The lady assured me we would fit. We are a 40 ft RV. We got there and found we would not fit. There were to many huge trees with branches hanging down. The space she reserved for us was not long enough and we would have been in the road. The street was very narrow and went down a steep slope. This place would be ok for a small 5th wheel or travel trailer 30'. The next day she told me there was camping about 14 blocks down Horton at the fair grounds. - M.Register

We tried to stay at Gunn Park but were not successful. The signage in the campground is poor and roads are very narrow. The campground is obviously for campers under 25 feet. The campsites are not well defined, most are not level. The electric hookups are primitive consisting of only a 3x5 box containing a single 30 amp socket with no breakers. We were totally out of place here with our 38 foot rig. - junkmanstan

This is a great City park for an overnight stay. It's quiet and fairly easy to find (just watch for the signs along the route). We were the only unit for the first evening and were then joined by another unit the second night we stayed. It's close to the Fort Scott NP and wonderful shops in downtown Fort Scott. The National Cemetery isn't too far. This is a great place to walk the dog. The locals use the park for walking, riding and playgrounds. It is patrolled by City police. We'd stay here again. - Arizona Traveler

This State Park is remote. It had 4 camp sites 2 of which were in the making. There was nothing there except shade, a small stream and lots of hiking trails, a nature lover's delight, quiet and peaceful. Toilets were pit toilets a quarter mile walk away to the parking area at the trail head. If you have a motor home 24 feet or smaller you will be okay. Maybe a small trailer would also, but otherwise not good. A camper van fine. The ranger guy was weird and acted as if my being there was a bother to him. No personality, very dull and stand-offish. The woman in the office seemed intimidated by him and kept quiet. Very bad vibes. I would not go back there. - Traveler John
