We stayed in the Doud campground in campsite 120. Our campiset was full hook up, The full hook up sites in Doud campground was filled the surrounding campsite were electric only. There were a couple of campers the electric only sites. It was a really hot weekend. The other campers were friendly. We have a 22" RV and the other RV's dwarfed ours. On Saturday we rented two Kayaks We rented them for two hours so the camp volunteer hauled the Kayaks to the cove we kayaked in. The also have trails for hiking, biking, and horse back riding. The best part of the camp were the volunteers, they operated a small store and the Kayak canoe rentals. They gave our dog a treats every time he went into the store. Our dog really loved the volunteers. They also gave kids free pop cycles. On Saturday afternoon we also drove to Emporia and toured William Allen White's home Red Rocks State Historical Site. https://www.kshs.org/red_rocks We camped at Eisenhower State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here in a 28ft travel trailer and enjoyed our stay. The sites in the Blackjack camp ground were very close together but the neighbors were friendly and respectful. Would've like to have a map upon arrival as we went down the wrong loop and the turn was super tight. Finally found our site but we were headed the wrong way to back in. After we got all of this figured out no problems what so ever. New shower house and restrooms close to the Blackjack and Doud campgrounds. Also the 18 hole disc golf course on site is a very fun play and is kept up nicely for a state park. Would stay again if we were in the area. We had a nice 3 day weekend here.

Tips for other Campers:

Many activities to do here at Melvern lake. Canoe rentals, 18 hole disc golf course on site, several swim beaches, archery paths/course. There were multiple campgrounds and there were about 5 lanes for the dump station so waiting times were minimal. Also there is a little general store that sells ice and firewood on site. Kids fishing ponds as well. Very nice lake.

We stayed here for one night in our Motorhome in site 169. The view out over the lake was super, the site was level and spacious. We were able to walk down a path directly from our site to the water's edge. This is a great well maintained campground and we wished we had more time than we did. We will definitely return when in that area again. We camped at Eisenhower State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Eisenhower State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Eisenhower State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

An OK park. Restrooms are a bit different, open air with toilet stalls under canopy. Located on lake. We camped at Eisenhower State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Kansas State parks now have on-line reservations available through their website which makes them much more appealing to those traveling from a distance. We found this to be a very nice campground with large well-maintained campsites with an abundance of shade. There are several different camping areas within this state park with varying amenities in each area. But every area looks to be very nice. Many sites are right next to the water of Melvern Lake, which is a beautiful lake with nice clear water. The sites in our area (Black Jack) had a wonderful shoreline with small pebble gravel and not mud. There are nice showers within short driving distance to each area, and each area has modern flush restrooms available within walking distance. This was our first time camping at Eisenhower State Park and it will not be our last. Modern playground, large clean beach, cabins and yurts, large boat ramp with boat slip rental. We camped at Eisenhower State Park in a Travel Trailer.
