Although we're less than a 100ft from the river, there is no real view of it due to the trees between us. Other than that - an excellent campground. You can't pay for your site at the campground (even if you're coming as a "walk-in" you still need to pay for the site using recreation.gov). Lots of shade at most sites... no sewer at any of them. We camped at Riverside COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of trails to hike at Kanopolis State Park (North). Watch out for poison ivy and ticks. Nice biking/walking trail (Valkommen Trail) in Lindsborg. There's also a cool flour mill museum called "Old Mill Museum" in Lindsborg.

Very shady with grass in most sites. We never needed to put out the awning. The 4 restrooms each had handicap accessible showers with good water pressure. Our Verizon coverage was limited and Wifi was nonexistent. Rangers and the camp attendant were very nice. There is a little store reopening just south of the campground so there is gas, ice and minimal groceries nearby. Difficult to fish on the spillway side but quite successful from the Venango side. We camped at Riverside COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Spacious, shaded, quiet, immaculate .. as are all COE parks we've ever visited, hence we choose them when we can! We had 30 amp/water, table, grill, firepit, VZ signal (phone and net) was OK, good signal from Tailgater TV, and warm weather. There is a dumpstation. Riverside COE is SE of Kanapolis Dam, Venango (COE that allows walk-ins) is NW of Dam. We drove through the State Park SW of dam (Langely) and it appears nice though probably more costly.

Riverside is small campground with a pit toilet and one other flush/shower restroom near the playground. We normally prefer the outside of a loop (40' w/3 slides) but the inside loops here are shady and spacious as well. If we are ever in area we'll definitely stay again. We camped at Riverside COE in a Motorhome.

Nice grassy campground with level gravel sites. I went there under the impression there were no showers but did find they had them although they were under repair at the time. Only one other camper there and you cannot beat the price especially when able to use your Federal Golden Age Passport old person's discount. Would stay there again. We camped at Riverside COE in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Small, quiet, shaded, campground located on a small bluff overlooking the Smoky Hill River. We camped here on the recommendation of other reviews and used it for an overnight stop on a multi-day vacation. We had a reservation for this campground. To view the river up close requires a short scramble down a 20' bank. The park was peaceful and quiet, mix of family campers and RV/trailers. Restrooms were clean and in good repair. We missed the dump station on the way out and stopped at the other COE campground up the road and asked at the entrance station (our campground did not have an entrance station) if we could use theirs and they said OK. This campground had good views of the lake, which ours did not. The only negative was the restroom had speakers and played the weather report on an endless loop. If camping near the restroom it would get annoying. We camped at Riverside COE in a Travel Trailer.

Compact Corps of Engineers park on the banks of the Smoky Hill River, just downstream of the Kanapolis Lake dam. Asphalt interior roads in excellent condition, gravel pads, fire rings, grills, and picnic tables (not covered). Lots of trees. Rate shown is the winter rate, good until May 1st. Then $18. We camped at Riverside COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Price reflects ½ price using Golden Age pass. A clean, quiet, aesthetically pleasing campground with gravel sites and roads. Large expanses of grass between sites. Sites had fire rings and picnic tables. Some sites are heavily shaded, some open and roof-top internet satellite dish friendly. Some sites are double, making it nice for two rig camping with friends. Most sites will accommodate the longest of rigs, but slope so that motorhomes may need blocks under the front or rear tires/jacks. There shouldn’t be any problems for 5th wheels or travel trailers. There are no sewer hookups but there is a dump station. We are full-time RVers and lived here for only four days, so we will definitely return. We camped at Riverside COE in a Motorhome.

A beautiful campground managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers. The sites are large, well spaced and well maintained. It is open all year with electric always available. Water, showers and toilets are available as long as possible in the fall. Water is available at one standpipe all winter. A dump station is available. Winter rates are $4.00 per nite ($2 with a golden age pass). We camped at Riverside COE in a Travel Trailer.
