2 RV Parks near Glen Elder, Kansas
Jun 2018 - $26.00
We stopped here for just one night and it was fine. They have about 5 or 6 gravel spots and a few were taken by what looked like long-term residents. The sites are located behind a bait and tackle store and it appears the owners live on site in a mobile home behind the parking spots. Power, water and cable TV was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. There is a "for sale" sign in front of the store, so not sure this place will be here much longer. There were no showers or restrooms that we saw, but we didn't need them. - Safetylady01

Small graveled RV park located right next to a convenience store (with fishing equipment), bar & grill and a fuel station. Easy access and very quiet. Cable TV very clear. Conveniently located within a few minutes of Waconda Lake (aka Glen Elder Reservoir). The 20 square mile lake boasts of great fishing with 100 miles of shoreline. There were no year round residents and managers live on-site and were very friendly and helpful. - travelingpeople

This is a nice state park with spacious sites and free wi-fi! We stayed in the Kanza loop which are "premium" sites. Nice shade trees but little privacy. The shower house is dated and in dire need of a cleaning. Lots of flying insects (non-biting), but I attibuted that to the proximity of the water and time of year. - MSSW

Glen Elder State Park looks upon one of the largest lakes in Kansas. The campgrounds were very clean. I had a pull through where the drive was gravel, but it had a concrete pad for the RV. It was very close to level. The views are great. Lots of birds. The fishing must be pretty good from what I saw. Dump stations only, no sewer at the sites. I want to go again. - rvrev2

The sites at the south end of the Kanza loop are mostly covered by trees and fairly spacious with flat concrete pads. Those at the north end are more utilitarian, crammed next to each other on a gravel lot.
We very much enjoyed our stay here, but be warned there can be a LOT of bugs here in August. We had a swarm of hundreds clinging to our slideouts and I had to have my wife continually swat them away while I pulled in the slideouts on our departure morning. And no matter how fast you come in and out at night, expect your ceiling to have several dozen tiny new visitors each time you open the door.
We had a good Verizon signal here and the campground's wifi worked well. It was very quiet during our midweek stay. Kanza site 34 has a great lake view if you have a passenger-side dinette. It looks like the ocean due to the flat terrain. - Brad & Angela
