9 RV Parks near Osage City, Kansas
Oct 2016 - $23.00
We stayed in the Doud campground. Rate was for full hook ups, which was a bargain. There were several residents in the campground, which was surprising for a state park, but no one caused any problems. Few trees and not a lot of privacy between sites, but it wasnt crowded on a Sunday in October. The park is about 12 miles from I-35 and we would stay again as a one night stopover. - wulfleton

We stayed in the West Point area of this campground. Full hookups and a separate section of this area has adjoining horse pens for those camping with their horses. There are also cabins and yurts to rent. The campsites are all full hookup/50 amp and well spaced for privacy. Our site was perfectly level and easy to back in to. Grass is well maintained and the proximity to the lake is very close with walking paths down for swimming and fishing. Boat slip rentals, beach area, kayak/canoe rentals, small store with necessities. Supremely friendly camp staff, from rangers to camp hosts to gate keepers. Many of the sites have quite a bit of shade. The site we chose was listed as "partial shade" and that turned out to be one medium sized tree situated such that it didn't shade our camper at all except a small area of shade early in the mornings. But there are many quite lovely sites with shade. In this state park, the best shade is in the BlackJack section. Kansas can be brutally hot and humid in summer. Verizon signal good. A couple of OTA TV stations with antenna. We'd stay here again and be more selective about our site in regard to shade. - Camping fools

An OK park. Restrooms are a bit different, open air with toilet stalls under canopy. Located on lake. - abqnm

It was on So. US Hwy 75, it was a little off the beaten path but on the Santa Fe Trail. It was clean and everyone was friendly. - Jim and Me

Great park easy to get to and very quiet. Lots of rabbits for my dog to salivate over. We were going to stay one week and decided after being there to stay six weeks. Great place. Lyndon was a great town. - Frank Farquhar

Very nice, clean RX park. Plenty of space between sites to put out awning. Friendly owner. Great wifi for anywhere let alone a RV park. Has a tornado shelter, small fishing pond and horse shoe pits. Hope to be able to stay here again. - Jweb98

We really enjoy camping here. There is a lot of shade and easy access to the water. They have recently eliminated the vault toilets and made them into flush toilet, and shower, which was a huge improvement to the area we camped in The campground hosts are great. They do their jobs without being "rule nazis". This is just a beautiful quiet campground with lots of space between the individual campsites. - benidew

This campground is on beautiful Melvern Reservoir, about 20 miles east of Emporia. There are many lakeside campsites with hookups and all are very shaded. The shower house is a bit small but clean and adequate. The campsites are spacious and grassy, with paved pads and adequate parking areas. It is very quiet and well patrolled by the local sheriff. The lake is clean and large enough for all water activities. - benidew

This was a very nice park. The site we had did not have sewer hook up, however some of the loops does have sewer hook up. Lots were spacious and offered some shade. Gravel surface featuring a picnic table. We would come here again if in the region. - dbl4de3

This was our first stay in B loop as we typically try for C loop. I give very high marks for this camp ground. Great online reservation system, great online check in system, reasonable price, and absolutely beautiful! Also feels very secure with regular sightings of park police cruising the camp grounds. This particular stay we were in B 107 and it was large enough for a 44' motorhome and car. Pretty nice for FHU and about $20 a night! I have noticed some of the sites are more level than others. Ours seem to pitch to the front so level would have left one of the steer wheels off the ground. I settled for slightly less than level. - Two Jayhawks

The park is a lovely one with nice trees but yet open enough to get DirecTV. The park roads in our part of the huge campground were very narrow and could be rather confusing. Our site had full hookups, something COE parks rarely have. All of the utilities performed well. This part of the campground could get crowded and close with sites positioned in an odd sort of way. We would stay here again in the future. - Kent and Margaret

Pomona State Park is a wonderful state park with a lot of good amenities (lake, beaches, hiking trails, boat ramps). Our nightly rate reflects buying the KS annual camping pass, plus the KS annual vehicle permits (one per vehicle RV+Car), plus 3 utilities (50 amp elec, water, sewer) for a month.
We stayed here in February and really appreciated the ability to stay in a state park setting, with full hookups, in winter.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Even though we were one of the few campers here, this time of year, the park was regularly patrolled and it felt very safe. Staff was onsite during the week and readily available to answer questions or to help as needed.
The park is generally in good repair and well maintained. Some of the picnic tables, at a few sites, are in desperate need of replacement; but otherwise the park facilities were in good working order.
The park is pretty, quiet, and serene. Although we could hear (several) barking dogs from the surrounding private residences outside the park, there was otherwise no road noise, railroad tracks, etc to detract from the park's serenity.
There are quite a few campsites/camp-loops, ranging from water-front primitive camping to full-hookup RV sites available. We stayed in the Burning Heart camp-loop, which has full-hookups and is available for long(er) term stays.
The roads are paved, leading to gravel sites. Most sites were generally level and wide enough for an awning or slide-outs. There is not a lot of visual separation between the sites but they are well separated and about average for a state park (vs a tightly packed RV park).
Laundry facilities are available all year and the machines were in good working order, inside of a clean and usable laundry room.
The site had 50 amp service, a frost free (non-heated) hydrant, and sewer hookup. All utilities worked well. Other sites offer 30amp and water only, and there are several primitive campsites throughout. All sites have a fire-ring and a picnic table.
We had reasonable Verizon wireless internet access and had good ATT cellular access. Both were within 2-4 bars of LTE service (unboosted).
The park is located between two small towns, Pomona to the east and Lyndon to the west and offered very basic shopping and a few restaurants. Ottawa is the closest town of any size, offering traditional shopping and dining options. Kansas City is about an hour north.
Overall we really enjoyed our time here at Pomona State Park and will definitely be returning. - Geom

This is a roomy state park with lots of grass and shade trees. There are sites of all sizes for both large rigs and smaller equipment. This a good park for an overnight stay or longer term. Swimming, marina, basketball, disc golf course, volleyball, tetherball. Equipment for check out at park office. It is clean and staff is friendly. This is on our "top ten" list. Price listed includes full hookups. - ksgypsy

This campground is on Pomona Lake 24 miles south of Topeka. The campground is absolutely gorgeous with lots of trees and very spacious campsites. Every site is shaded. There are several different camping areas and some are primitive, but there are many full hookup sites and even more water/electric sites available. The sites in Burning Heart area are full hookup and there are several very long pull through sites that are quite nice. Most of the sites have only a view of the water, but there are a few water front sites near the marina. And several sites have no view of the water at all, but the wooded surroundings are very beautiful. We didn't use the shower facilities but the building looks very new and modern. We will definitely camp here again. The only reason I didn't give a 10 is that the cellphone service was marginal. Our wireless Internet card did work there however. - benidew

This is a very nice COE park. There are several COE campgrounds in this section of Pomona Lake and all looked very good. Rate reflects a Golden Age discount for .50 amp, water, and sewer. There are only twelve of these sites and quite a number of electric and water sites. Contractors seemed nice and informative. We would definitely stay here again. - PALPJL

A few gravel sites with 30 amp service. Not bad for a day or two. No other amenities but connected with RV/trailer sales and service. Some highway noise but not too bad. - Orlan
Nov 2011 - $8.00
This park is good for an overnight stay. It is at I-35 so there is a lot of highway noise, plus there is a train track close by which adds to the noise. There is water at the entrance. There is also a sign which state the rate is $6. But since the box was full I went to the office the next day and was told it was $8. The owner just didn't want to change the sign. - From the Kites
Oct 2009 - $8.00
Located at Exit 135 on I-35 east of Emporia beside a trailer/RV dealer's lot. For a night, not bad, not a destination, but as way point, it's acceptable. 30AMP power only, back to back pull-throughs. Rough gravel access road, but easy to level on sites. Close to Interstate, but no worse than many other campgrounds noise-wise, for 3 to 4 times the price - Teacher's Pet

It advertised cable. There was cable but they brought to you in a plastic bag. The lady explained how to hook it up. If you're looking for cable, don't come here.
We had 50 amp electric in a site behind the office. - TT543

Stayed a month $300.00 plus electric. Has very friendly staff. It is well kept up. An excellent value for the money. - DRF

This park is close to Forbes Field Air National Guard Base. We expected it would be noisy, however we found it very quiet at night and we were not disturbed. You don't have to worry about over sleeping. A neighbor has chickens that will crow at dawn.
There were several construction workers staying in the park while we were there. They mainly stayed to themselves and were always quiet. - Plainjane

Adequate but not great. Our long pull-through was plenty big but very close to the busy interstate highway, lots of noise. The man who checked us in was nice and very helpful. Ask about the best way to get back to the interstate, he gave us directions for a route much better than the one our GPS brought us in on. OK for overnight but I have been in better KOAs lately. - JA1800

We stayed here two days during a period of foul weather, severe storms nearby, high winds and rain all day. This KOA has a big red barn with a basement severe storm shelter which is why we picked it. There is a row of permanent residents but those campers are well kept and seemed to consist of young families with school age children. It felt very park like and safe. The office is only open 3:00 to 8:00 pm but the fellow was there was nice and helpful. WIFI was excellent although it would stop and restart every couple of hours. Campground layout was pleasing and well thought out. There was no mud in spite of all the rain we had due to nice grass and gravel/sand on our sites. There is a very nice children's park and fishing ponds. Our site was fine but a bit short. It is set in a place between two interstates so there was some traffic noise but not too bad. A nicer than average KOA. We will stop again, especially if we need a place to sit out storms. - Judy Birchland

This was a nice KOA. We rolled in late but were treated warmly in the office. Got a nice pull through sight. Gravel but level. Park has wide drive lanes and easy in and out. Nice old barn as an office. Ponds and a great walking trail. We would stay here again. - JHooper
