We stayed here a night. A bit run down, probably due to state budget issues. No staff while we were here, self-pay a bit difficult to suss out. Overall a good experience, especially with the flock of wild turkeys in the early morning. We camped at Meade State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very beautiful park on a lake. However, we were so frustrated by the time we got here, we couldn't enjoy it. First we pulled into the entrance but it wasn't staffed, no instructions and no visible camping. We drove further and found some campers but there was a locked gate into the sites. So we drove all around the lake and this time we saw a tiny sign which was a picture of a man by a building. This was the right entrance. At the self pay station the map didn't have a "you are here" indication so we couldn't understand it so we drove around. Very confusing signs indicated different grades of sites yet no where at the sites did it indicate anything. We drove back to the station to see the map. Then we chose a site and then had to walk a long ways back to the station to pay. Our site was $24.00 plus entry fee of $5.00. The rest rooms & showers had a partial roof so was open air and no curtains on the showers. All sites appear to be reserved for the weekend. No sign indicating a camp host and no one around to get some help. No TV reception with antenna. We camped at Meade State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Price is for water & electric camping plus the required day-use fee. Tight roads and turns with back-in only camping spots. Lots of big, old cottonwood trees. The night we decided NOT to stay here there was a huge thunderstorm with 50 mph winds, so we were very glad not to be parked under those trees.

Push-button showers that ran for 30-60 seconds between pushes. Very weak water stream in showers. We camped at Meade State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hidden gem in the middle of southwestern Kansas. State Park rather small, but well-kept and scenic. Lots of trees, small lake, lots of birds and squirrels. This late in the year meant few campers, so there were just 3 others during the 3 nights we stayed. Peace and quiet everywhere. Only complaint not enough signs and markers to navigate the various camping areas successfully, had to go back through several times until we found the spot we reserved. And, when we finally found it, there was another camper already on the site. Because there were so many vacancies, we just let them keep it and found another. Other than that, really good value for the money. Could get crowded during the summer, but late fall is really nice. We camped at Meade State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Very small town of Meade within 15 miles, very little in the way of shopping. Best bet is to go to Liberal, 30 miles west by county roads then US 54. They have just about everything you could need.

We stayed here one night as we were passing thru. No shade and the Mosquitos were terrible. Probably wouldn't stay here if there was was somewhere else to stay. Not terrible but not great. We camped at Meade State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice spot, far off the beaten path. You wouldn't expect this little oasis in the middle of the sorghum fields. Loooong drive to anything, so don't plan on running to the grocery store for milk after you arrive. The lake is nice and has picnic tables near the water, as well as a few play areas for kids. Sandy beach and fishing. Verizon signal reaches weakly (OK with booster). Shady sites and plenty of open space. We camped at Meade State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This State Park is quiet and most sites have a view of the lake. Swimming in on the opposite side of the lake. The dump station is positioned such that only the last campground can use it upon entry or exit. Campers heading for a different campground have to do a circle of the last campground to get turned around. It is a long way off of US 54. We camped at Meade State Park in a Motorhome.

12 miles south of Meade and US 54 on Kansas 23 is Meade State Park. Beautiful State Park surrounding the lake, that is open year round. Main roads are paved while camp roads are gravel. We used one of the pull through sites and had easy entry and exit. Large level site with fire ring, grill and picnic table. Staff was friendly and helpful. They are in process of switching from their own reservation system to using Reserve America, therefore it might be a good idea to call ahead. We camped at Meade State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park. Many sites are lakeside or have good view of lake. Lake was closed to swimming, boating and fishing due to algae bloom, but camping was good. There are 4 loops, many with elect. There are 3 long pull-throughs in one loop (which we did not see until we we were leaving). No TV or WiFi. Sites are large, fairly level and shady. Looks great for tent camping. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Meade State Park in a Motorhome.

What a nice little park! You're driving through some pretty boring flat farmland, and all of a sudden here's a lake! The sites are very nice. There are 4 separate loops with electric and water, and our site (A loop) had 50 amps. Not sure about the others. Plenty of tent sites as well. It's a little oasis in the middle of nowhere! We camped at Meade State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Large tree shaded spaces on the shores of an 80 acre lake. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very quiet, no traffic noise, no water skiing or jet skis (boats have to be operated at a no wake speed). Was told there is very good fishing for bluegill, cat and large mouth bass. Nature trails around the lake. Definitely would go back. We camped at Meade State Park in a Travel Trailer.
