All the previous reviewers are pretty well spot on. Our site had electric only, and was half off the regular rate due to the federal senior discount pass. We had a great view, and the loop to ourselves. We saw deer in the campground. We were pleasantly surprise when we heard a bugle play "taps" over the loudspeaker at dusk! We camped at Venango Park COE in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects national senior discount pass. Beautiful well kept park on the banks of Lake Kanopolis. Quiet and peaceful even over a holiday weekend. Roads are a little narrow, but it does keep speeding and cruising down. All the loops have a view of the lake. Not all sites have utilities here, some are 50A/W; some 30A/W, some have either water or no electric; some have electric and no water. Some sites with no utilities at all. No sewer sites, but there is a dump centrally located in the park. Bathrooms were clean. A couple of very momentary power “clicks” due to high winds, but nothing serious, water pressure is good. No Wi-Fi here, but our Verizon card and cell worked fine. There is a very nice, easy to walk two mile nature trail. A written guide at the start of the walk will point out areas of interest. There is a swim beach area and an ATV park on the grounds, but just outside the campground so no noise. They have a boat launch, but it was closed when we were here due to low water. There are other entrance points around the lake. Camp hosts were friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Rangers were visible and friendly. They do lock the gates here at night. Don’t miss a quick drive to Mushroom Rock State Park, right up the road. Tiny little state park, (no camping), around some unique rock formations. We would recommend a visit to Venango Park. We camped at Venango Park COE in a Motorhome.

Paid $9.00 per night with a NP Senior Pass (full price is $18.00 per night.) This is another example of a well run COE park. We opted for the "E" loop which has a little more shade than the other loops. All loops have lake views. Park is about 10 miles from the closest town of Marquette, which has a couple of restaurants and a grocery store. Other than that, it is fairly isolated which makes for very peaceful nights. The restroom/shower facility was fairly new, private and clean. I had very limited service on T-Mobile and had several tv stations to chose from with an antennae. We camped at Venango Park COE in a Motorhome.

We intended to stay at the nearby state park, but left after we saw the poorly maintained place. A drive across the Kanopolis Lake dam brought us to this Corps of Engineers (COE) park. What a difference! This is a large and well maintained COE facility. As it was off season the daily fee was $4, but with our senior pass we paid $2. We had the D section with no neighbors and a view of the lake. We were able to get Dish reception, although there are trees. Watch for unlevel sites. This is probably the one problem at the campground. While staying at the park we drove to Abilene to visit the Eisenhower museum. Each site is gravel with a picnic table, grill and fire ring. The roads are paved. For a big rig the dump station exit is a bit tight. Our site was an easy back-in, although there are pull-thrus. We camped at Venango Park COE in a Motorhome.
