Excellent small campground. Mostly friendly long term campers staying here. Clean facilities, full hook-ups at every site, paved roads and sites with cut grass between. Long back-ins and decent sized pull-throughs. Sites are close together, but no more then at other private campgrounds. Very friendly staff. Good Wi-Fi. Park office is only open until 4:30, but there is a camp host to take care of late arrivals. Rate reflects a Passport America discount, which is good for just one night and cannot be reserved. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Owl's Nest Campground is the standard ALL campgrounds should strive for. This was the nicest RV Park we ever stayed in. Perfectly neat, all paved roads and sites, nicely landscaped and grass mowed. Everything worked properly, great WiFi, TV, etc. Owner and staff were "top-notch!" Bathroom and shower were spic and span! We only stayed one night due to traveling through but will certainly stay at Owl's Nest Campground again. Cannot say enough about how nice this campground is. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a well-cared for small RV park with paved roadways and paved, reasonably level sites. A majority of the units are seasonal, but they seem to have a few daily sites available most of the time. I would recommend reservations to be sure. The park is centrally located for visits to Fort Riley (US Cavalry Museum), Manhattan, KS and the Eisenhower Library and Museum. Cable TV gets many stations and the Wi-Fi works well. There is also a hard line web connection in the laundry room. There is just one unisex full bath, but even with the park full there hasn't been a long wait to use the facilities. We would stop here again if in the area.

The $15 rate reflects the P/A rate. This park is far enough off of I 70 so there is no road noise. The park is "sparkling" with blacktop drives and sites and grass everywhere else. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for 3 weeks and found it to be a very nice park. There are full timers here and the short stay campers. Enjoyed the visit, made some new friends, visited the local attractions. Laundry facility is very clean. Fairly quiet park with freeway sounds being minimal. Would love to stay again if we go to the area. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here with PA in the only site that wasn't filled with long term campers. The free internet only worked for one computer, $5 if we both wanted on. The laundry is 2 & 2 and very clean. The people working here are very nice and helpful. There is a car wash next door that accommodates RV's. Short drive to town for an assortment of restaurants. Call ahead if you think you want to stop here. They need a pool! We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

We called Owl’ Nest RV Park a week prior to our arrival and were told that Passport America rates would be available if they were not full (no reservations for Passport members). When we arrived, we had to drive into the park on a very narrow entrance and once at the office we saw the “Sorry we’re full” sign. No thought to putting it our front. Getting back out of this place was a real challenge. All the campers were pretty much backed into very tight spots and appear to be homesteaders. I seriously doubt that had they had a vacancy our 40’ MH would not have fit anywhere. We have seen more spacious burger joint turn a rounds. They are close to the interstate (noise) and offer nothing for kids or pets. We went 13 miles west (towards Abilene) down I-70 and got a park with a pull through, wireless, free cable, swimming pool, good pet walk area and further away from interstate noise with our discounts (they offer several) we paid 25.20; $3.00 less than at the Owl’s Nest. We would not even consider this place for the future. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

Small park just off I-70 with associated noise. Also train tracks nearby; however, only heard 4 trains in 16 hours. Office opened intermittently, but camp host available and very friendly. Water pressure very high with a strong chlorine taste. Paved roads, narrow with some overhanging branches. Paved sites require some leveling. Wi-fi was slow but usable. Many sites taken up by long termers, but very nicely kept up. Strongly suggest calling for a reservation. Would stop here again for an overnight. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

Small park, 13 sites at the West end of JC right off I-70. Clean and well cared for. Some trees and tables at each site. Much more convenient than where we camped at Milford Lake in July. Camp host is nice girl, friendly and helpful. Sites are asphalt with small grass area at each site. Some highway noise but not bad. Both pull through and back in sites. A bit tight getting through but I did it in my 40 ft fiver. Elect., sewer, water good. Not much shopping in JC. There is a WalMart Supercenter, and auto parts stores and Ace Hardware, but any other major shopping is in Manhatton (20 miles). Good fishing at Milford Lake 10 miles away, and there is a great indoor gun range in JC for you shooters. We stayed a week. Would stay here again.

This CG is very close to I-80 so road noise can be a problem. It is clean and appears to be very neat. The bathroom/shower, which is just off the laundry room and is uni-sex, is super nice. The one road is rather narrow. Most of the sites appear to be seasonal so there are very few sites available for overnighters. I'd suggest you call ahead to reserve a site.

Paved interior roads and sites. We got the last site. #11. A couple guys came out and told us where to park. Have screwy u shape pull thrus. A little tight for a HDT and 35 ft 5th wheel. (60 ft combo) Won't want to be an longer to try to get around. Got about 80 TV channels and did pick up some "free" Wi-Fi". Did hear a train horn a couple of times. But for sleeping, ear plugs worked fine. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Newer Park with good paved roads and easy access. Close to I-70 so there is some noise but other than that, it is great overnight Park. Owners are making improvements and seem to care about their customers. Shopping and restaurants are one exit to the east. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It's crowded here, but the place is neat, clean and well taken care of. The owner is personable, friendly and helpful. It's pretty close to the highway and there is a train track nearby, so adjust accordingly. The access road is well-paved and the sites are level. Electricity was fine and the water was good. I gave it a 10 because of the helpfulness of the owner. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

They have very few overnight spots, but they are level, paved, and pull-through. The trees are small so we could manage with a 37' fifth wheel. There were many cable channels, but they charge extra for Wi-Fi. It is easy off and on from the freeway, and they even provide boards for your jacks if you don't have any. It is an excellent overnight stop, and we will return if in the area. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
