Daily rate was for a weekly stay. This park was previously Sunflower RV Park and was a disgrace to the city of Hays. It is now under new ownership and work is being done to make necessary changes. While it is far from a 10 rating, it did meet our needs for our stay. It's a bare bones park however the pad was level and the utilities (electricity, water and sewer) were conveniently located at the site. This park works fine to visit family, Fort Hays State University, the sports complex or Hays Medical Center. There are no amenities at the park. We camped at Shady Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hays is a very historic western town with great shopping and restaurants.

This RV Park is bad, but it is the best in Hays. The site had no pad of any kind, was very badly rutted. Worst of all, the water spout was right beside (less than 3 inches) and lower than the lip of the sewer. At $25/night it was overpriced. Would not stay here again. We camped at Shady Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

I have been in cow pastures that were smoother and had better grass. This park is located next to a busy intersection and is pretty noisy. Had I known I would have stayed in Wakeeney or Russell. We camped at Shady Grove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Drove by this park. It's right on the road with questionable people living here. According to one of the tenants, some of the sites have power that work and some don't. Some of the sewers work, and some don't. So, DON'T stop. If you are heading west stay in Ellis at the city park. It's about 17 miles away, well worth the stop and it's only $15.00 with power and water!! We did not stay at this park. We camped at Shady Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

No pads to park on, no patios, no tables. Just long grass, no management on site, nasty bathrooms, will never stop in Hays KS again. The only other park in town is El Charro which is just as bad if not worse! Keep on driving to the next town or park at Wal-Mart for the night. We camped at Shady Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I don't think we've ever stayed in a worse RV park. We were forced to stay here when we had car trouble. The place is right next to a highway bypass and close to train tracks. It is very poorly maintained and the restrooms are dirty. The women's restroom was locked, and you had to get a key from the manager (who is not on site, but at a nearby pizza place), and take it right back. The electricity did not work at first site we tried. The water hydrants are makeshift. There are absolutely no amenities that we could see. We only saw the manager twice; once when we went to the pizza place to pay, another time when he drove around to be sure everyone had paid. If you have a choice, do not stop here! Drive on to Wakeeney or Cedar Bluff Reservoir. We camped at Shady Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
