Very clean, nice RV spots, paved roads, and lots of activities. The park is right on the lake, and some spots have lake views. It seems that the State of Kansas is neglecting its State Parks over the last few years due to lack of funding, but we still enjoy camping here and in other Kansas State Parks. The towns of Lawrence and Topeka are both about 20 minutes away. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Grounds were beautiful. Spacious sites. Gravel with fire pit and picnic table. Bathrooms were extremely clean and large. We had plenty of service with our phones and television. The only down fall we had was we had to pay extra for our vehicles $5 per upon arrival. Even the one pulling our trailer although our receipt online stated 2 vehicles. Also, their swimming beach is about a 75 stair walk straight down and was not impressed. If not going for water, the campground was very nice and clean. Kid and dog friendly as well. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clean huge and level sites, very quiet, easy access to highway. Clean facilities, however one bath house was under construction so we had to drive to the other one. The camp hosts were available as requested. Stayed here one night, would love to go back and explore it more. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites were long, level, and a decent width. A lot of weekenders even at this time of year. A lot of campground smoke at night. Don't know that we'd stay here again but we would recommend it to others. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large state park with several campgrounds. Sites vary in size, but most can accommodate any rig. Roads were paved. Sites were gravel. Water and electricity are available at most sites, but water was not yet turned on at individual sites. I had to fill up at the dump station. Some sites are out in the open; some have varying amounts of shade and nearby trees. The camp host was friendly and helpful. There was a playground for the kids. Showers were hot and clean, but spartan and in need of maintenance. It was unbelievably quiet at night with a chorus of bird songs to roust you out of bed at dawn. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for a total of 6 nights: 3 in the Cedar Ridge campground and 3 nights in the Walnut campground. This is a beautiful park with some great camping facilities and it's close to Lawrence for shopping and sightseeing. We had 50 amp pull-through in Cedar Ridge, but moved to Walnut and had 30 amp but a much prettier back-in campsite. It's especially peaceful here late in the season. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Motorhome.

Pretty park but too much partying going on for me. People drinking beer and cussing. They want you to come join them. You loose privacy with that going on right next to you. And the park people seem to look the other way. Also it seems a bit expensive but I don't know what other state parks charge. Stayed 7 days and had to buy a yearly park pass on top of the nightly charge, so I haven't figured exactly what that all comes to. It's kind of confusing. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice State Park. For the most part it is clean and well maintained. Naturally since it is a state park, there is some "partyers" on the weekends. No sewer hook ups but there is a dump station at the park entrance of both campgrounds. Camp hosts are friendly and accommodating. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Motorhome.

This place was disgusting. Constant drinking went on around us. Not a place for kids. The bathrooms smelled of urine. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful place, but no Wi-Fi or cable TV is available. We have camped here in tents as well and really enjoy the shaded sites - shade in the RV sites is a little harder to come by. We love Lawrence, especially the commercial area on Mass St. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a really nice state park campground. It borders a large lake, but the lake is hidden by the trees from the campground. It is a bit of a walk from parking area to swimming beach. Wonderful location just west of Lawrence. No cable tv but good reception from Topeka and Kansas City. We camped at Clinton State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
