I am confounded how this park gets favorable reviews. The good is that the power and water worked and the sites were long. However, the utilities are all at the back. Even with our rig all the way to the rear edge we had a bit of difficulty hooking up. The photos on the site are completely misleading. The miniature golf is completely rundown; not weeded; not taken care of; clubs were literally strewn over their back patio. There are seemingly abandoned buildings next door. The grounds are run down. The owner was 'nice' in forced way, but rude when I needed help as if I were an inconvenience. I wish I had driven a bit further and stayed at a KOA. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy on & off I-70. This campground calls itself a resort on the brochure, and could have been a "9" some years ago, but is now rundown and lacks pride. Full hookups worked properly, showers were okay, two restaurants were within walking distance. There were few trees and very gusty winds. This is a convenient overnight stop with full hookups. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.

Wife and I stopped here for one night on our return to east Texas. The park is very clean with good level sites, all gravel. Great cable reception. Large clean showers and restrooms, hot tub, pool, mini golf. Great view for someone who's lived where you can only see sky by looking up all his life. You can see forever in all directions here. A clear starry night would be beautiful. I'll definitely stop here again if I'm ever close. Wouldn't want to live in this area but an overnight stay is fine. We arrived at 7:00 PM and it didn't get dark until 9:30. We arrived during a rare rain storm for Kansas and afterwards watched a fantastic lightning show in the distance for 360 degrees. Our night temperature was 65 with a strong breeze. I'm sure by Kansas standards it was a gentle one. The staff was very friendly and courteous and went out of the way to make sure we were satisfied. There's an onsite pub that serves a cold brew or good hot sandwiches or a meal while listening to some good tunes from the 70's and 80's, not a honky tonk. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Out front of this CG is the Colonial Steakhouse, not part of this but open for breakfast through dinner.

What a wonderful oasis in Kansas! The owners are so personable! They have made this a one stop location. They have a pool, hot tub, pizza delivery and pub. I would recommend them to any and all. Site level, 70 ft long very wide and pull-thru. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The only thing near them that is not theirs is a steak house in front of them. We ate at the pub and had a wonderful time. Have a drink at the pub, and eat dinner at the pub. If you like antique shopping there is a store next door.

If you have dogs, do yourselves and your dogs a huge favor and keep on driving. We removed over 40 stickers from our dogs, plus the ones we removed from our pants legs, shoes and now picking them out of our rugs/carpet. The grounds are a mess, grass needs to be cut, weeds are everywhere, the dog run is full of weeds and stickers, the roads are full of potholes. Basically this park is a mess. On a funny note, there are signs that say this is a nonsmoking park because they got tired of picking up cigarette butts. We wish that was the only problem here! There are trucks that park out front and the smell of manure from the stock trucks parked there is overwhelming. On an up side, the hot tub worked, seemed clean and was hot. We would not stay here again, not even for a quick overnight stop. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.

We will probably stop here again for an overnight stay. But not in late Summer and Fall. The grass had just been mowed and the owners were very nice. But the stickers were just horrible. I had them in my socks and our poor dog was in pain. The pull thrus were a good length with plenty of room for our slide-outs. The roads were gravel and bumpy. But this park is right off the highway and easy to get to. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Our experience with this campground was just fine for what we intended it for. Apparently a much better experience than the reviewer who gave it a "2" recently. Although this is not what I would call a "deluxe" or "resort" type campground, it does not in my opinion deserve such a low rating. Everything worked as advertised, and the staff was quite friendly, humorous and helpful. The restrooms and laundry areas are HUGE, and were clean. Our 30amp electric was good. The water was good. The wifi was generally good, but in just about every campground we visit the wifi takes "spells", as it did here. We had been warned about the weeds with burrs on them, but in walking our dogs I never noticed any. There are plenty of places to walk your dog, and they also have a nice, large, fenced in dog "play area". Don't forget, this IS Kansas, so large shade trees are not going to be there. All in all, we liked this place for our overnight stay. Oh, and by the way, the "Hunt Brother's" pizza is very good! We camped at High Plains Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good overnight stop. The owner was very nice and agreeable. We did not see a problem with the rules, it is their property and their right to make the rules. Our site was large enough for our 43 foot motorhome without having to unhook the tow vehicle and plenty of space between sites. Easy on and off of I-70 with a restaurant next door with a good breakfast. Will stay here again when in the area. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.

The campground is conveniently located right off of I-70 but that is about the only thing positive I have to say about this campground. It is very run down, with tall weeds, overgrown areas and grass that hadn't been mowed in a few weeks. A strip of grass had been mowed leading to the mini golf course, but the tall grass lay in piles (ready for bailing). Weeds and stickers are everywhere. We stayed here on two occasions (one night only) and found this to be true both times. Potholes everywhere, even in the approach to the office. Bathrooms had dead bugs and smelled of urine in both the men's and women's bathroom. No pride of ownership here. Don't be fooled by their pictures or their claims. We will not be back. On a positive note the Hunts Bros. pizza was good and the pool was clean. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Came in on a Sunday night without a reservation. Office was already closed, but had self-registration. Park was quiet, even though hwy. is very close by. Bathrooms/showers were clean, laundry room was clean. Grass needs to be better maintained. my multiple dogs had so many stickers in them, it took me over an hour to remove them. Also, rather bizarre that you cannot smoke in the park, but can smoke in your RV (?) Overall, except for the grass, a pleasant enough stay. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.

High Plains campground has easy access from the interstate and has long, level pull-thrus. Mostly gravel sites. I don't consider it a long-term place to stay, but one or two nights at most. A restaurant is just off-site and within easy walking distance. Our meals there were very tasty, but certainly not a fancy place. WiFi was very uncertain and connections unpredictable. Office staff stated that WiFi should be available at all sites. It was, but barely working. WiFi was the biggest drawback to this facility as well as rather low voltage at our site. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.

We stayed her for a quick overnight and found it to be better than we expected. The person who reviewed this park in July ahead of us must have been at a different park. The sites were well-kept for the most part. Bathrooms were huge and clean with more sinks and showers than we've ever seen. There is a nice hot tub, pool, and mini golf for a park that is not a destination park. The restaurant on-site has a nice menu with reasonable prices and a happy hour. The price we paid is with a Good Sam discount. The girl in the office was extremely helpful and pleasant. We would stay here again. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Travel Trailer.

A good park easily accessible to interstate. Very pleasant staff. WiFi weak, cable OK but much static. Restaurant on site after 4 pm and pizza delivered to sites. We would stay here again. This is our third visit with improvements from previous times. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.

This is a campground that I would consider as strictly for an overnight stop. Easy access from the highway and very easy pull through spots. This campground is on the plains in Kansas so it is very dusty and windy. There are a lot of native weeds and stickers. We constantly had to pull the stickers out of our dogs paws and fur. This park is a non-smoking park so if you smoke you have to do it inside your RV. This didn't bother us as we don't smoke. There is a small free mini-golf course and an above ground pool. The pizza and pub on site had very good pizza. They will even deliver pizza to your RV. We stayed here one night as we were driving through Kansas. We would probably look for another campground near the highway the next time we drive through Kansas. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Motorhome.
