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

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

We stayed one night en route from Independence, MO to Oklahoma City. We pulled in after closing and used the night registration they told us about by phone which was easy but I guess it's necessary to bring cash and in the right amount too. Unsure if checks accepted and no apparent way to leave a credit card. There is an abundance of pull-through sites, however most are not level (uphill going in). We found one or two in the first row that leveled out OK towards the end of the site. Our towed vehicle was on the downhill a little but OK for our size (25') motorhome. It might be easier to find a level site during the daylight! The bathrooms were satisfactory - not super clean or nice but not dirty either. Bathroom stalls have pull curtains which seems odd. It's easy on/off for US75. Some traffic noise but it quiets down during the night. Arrive before sunset so you can see and pick among the spaces. - MNroadie

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

Beautiful view of the lake. Difficult to find. Was on the opposite side of the lake from where our gps took us. Once there it was wonderful. Lantern hooks and fire rings were heavy duty. Toilets with plumbing throughout the grounds were basic but clean and well lit. Did not use showers. Paved roads, gravel sites and lots of grassy areas. Dump site nice and large, easy to use - Minniediver

This is a Corp of Engineer by-reservation-only group camp site. The facility will handle smaller TTs and pop-ups, but it was probably designed primarily for tent camping because the dirt pads aren't long and would not support heavy weight. All but three sites are dry camping. Those three co-located sites do have electric/water. It's family friendly. There is a playground, basketball net, grass ball field, volleyball court, and a picnic pavilion. Sites have fire rings and picnic tables. There is a bath/shower house and a boat ramp is nearby. The campground is isolated from the rest of the COE RV parks in the area so it provides nice privacy for groups. My rating is based on like Group Site facilities. Golden Age/Access cards are accepted for a discount. - RLM

There is a mixture of tents and RV sites with a mixture of 30 amp only or 30 amp with water or there is 30/50 amps with water and sewage. Most sites are fairly level. Sites are clean. - From the Kites

This is a decent COE campground that would probably fit well into a few days or weekend of camping. But there were some negatives that chipped away at my rating. It has good paved access roads, a fair amount of space between well maintained sites, partial shade thru out, picnic tables, fire rings, and grills. There is a nice playground for the kiddos. The sites will accommodate all rigs. Its half 30A electric and half dry camping sites. The dry sites are the same size and design as the RV sites and would please most tent campers who don’t want electricity. There are only four or five pull thru sites which in my opinion doesn’t rate as a place with pull thrus. 3G cell, satellite, and TV signals are good. There are also some 50A sites, but they are occupied by custodians or volunteers during the season. The negatives are that the majority of sites have some degree of fore and aft level issues. It is hard to understand, that in this mostly flat campground in a flat state like Kansas, they couldn’t get that right. The four restroom buildings don’t have shower capabilities. That is in a separate building in the campground which is some distance from the majority of camp sites. The lighting in all of the buildings are on day/night sensors. During the day the inside of the buildings are dark. The only water faucets where you can connect a hose to fill tanks is at the bathroom buildings and that takes a long hose. Handicap sites probably don’t meet ADA compliance since they are gravel and won’t accommodate a wheelchair. Not to mention that they aren’t even marked as handicap on the site posts. The voltage was on the low side, but it is a 30A campground. The fee/info booth is completely closed on Tuesday and Wednesday despite there being an abundance of paid attendants to man it 7 days a week. I have a hard time rating this CG. It has served my purpose for being here and I got my monies worth. As mentioned, it’s a decent CG, but if you are familiar with the higher quality of COE campgrounds then this one rates somewhat below that standard. Access and Golden Age discounts are honored here. - RLM

Cedar Ridge CG is part of the COE Bloomington East complex. Our site was C007 and was a wide/long pull through with 50A Electric and water. There are plenty of long back-in 50/30A sites as well. There are no sites right on the lake but some of the back-ins were within a couple of hundred feet. Our Sprint Service was really good in the park (was told Verizon was good also). Broadcast TV will get you about 25 channels. Some geocaches in the area. Good-sized lake with several boat ramps. $11 Rate is with the America the Beautiful Senior Pass. - Calibrateguy

Great Park, The facilities are clean. Quiet next to Lake but still not far from Lawrence and about 45 minutes to Kansas City. Only drawback is no sewer but dump is right outside Park and is free. - USAF1

This is our second time to visit this park and we will probably come back should we visit the area again. The only drawback is that it is 20 miles from Lawrence, but if you just want to relax and chill, this is the place. Dump station is well situated on the property for incoming and outgoing traffic. We camped here in a 45 ft. motorhome and the sites can handle us. - travelingstar

Level gravel pull through spots. couldn't get on the wifi... Airstream wiht our computers but ipads did fine. We visited some friends who were staying in the park which contributed to the excellent rating. $36 with PA, $40 without. Park was full, we had the last space. Behind Super 8 motel, it was a clean park and the full timers were clean and picked up. The spots are close together. It was close to Topeka and hte cost reflected that. - Jim Lee

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

We were told CG #3 had more space between sites; we did all the loops and were not pleased with our options. A CG #1 premium struck our fancy. Not that I wanted to pay the extra $2/night for 50 amps, but we needed to stay for a 3 weeks and I was being picky. I assume premium is for the 50 amp service; it is certainly not for the view of the lake. We could see bit and pieces of water through the leaves, not worth extra $$. Lake is down a couple of steep sets of stairs and then there is no access due to vegetation. Lots of trails running along the lake between the campground and the lake. It rained and the trails were still very wet 3+ days later. We ended up walking on the road a lot; there were a lot of cars passing us. Most were courteous, except for the one that almost ran me over. Beach is a good 20+ minute walk on the trails or on the road. From the beach parking lot, it is 127 steps down to the beach! Bathrooms were fairly clean, mostly bugs and webs; one time I did encounter a mess like the previous reviewer mentioned. I felt it pretty pricey for no sewer hook ups. They say it is $23 for camping, but you also have to add the $5/night fee for your vehicles and another $3 per reservation fee. The touristy part of Lawrence is at least 20 min drive. We won't forget this place for an RV caught fire and burned to the ground across from us (well spaced sites! we didn't have to move) and the folks at the dump station that dumped without use of a hose despite my offer to use my hose. I certainly hope your stay isn't as eventful. - MichelleKry

For a State and Corp of Eng run state park, it needs some upgrades and better security. Stay clear of GC#3 if you are a long-term camper and have personal outdoor belongings. On several occasions the restroom toilets were clogged and rather disgusting. Part of that responsibility lays with campers not being respectful of state owned property or anyone's property for that matter. If I'm paying to camp somewhere I am at least respectful to not leave behind a disgusting mess for the next paying law abiding citizen and thinking that something setting outside next to another person's RV is free for the taking! Just be aware! CG#1 has always been clean and trouble free! Probably because it has a lot more to offer and is near the cabin area! - 1983_TexasGirl

At first does not look like much, but it has a good layout and turned out to be very nice campground. There are 8 "Big Rig" sites (58-65). Pull throughs (sites 1-37) and some back in sites. Our site 33 was just long enough for my 36' motor home and toad without unhooking. (sat friendly). Many of these sites have a slight drop off at the end. There are also deluxe patio sites. Sites are gravel/dirt with grass in between. FHU's good. Sewer a bit to the rear, may need extension if your bay is mid rig. Good Verizon and T-Mobile signal. Wifi - (5 Ghz 30 Mps down.) 2.4 Ghz was hard to get on, 5 Ghz did drop often. Many satellite friendly sites also treed sites. Propane on site. Grass areas for rover and a K-9 park. I did need a board under one wheel to level, but did not see any other rigs with boards. Camp store open to 8pm. Laundry rooms are in two places ($1.50 wash). There are cabins and tent areas. Playground, fishing ponds, saltwater pool, exercise rooms. There is a storm basement in main building. You may not want to trust your GPS to get here, some roads may have changed. There is one way in on a loose gravel road, and another over paved roads. If you call they will give directions over the paved roads. Campground near interstate, but not noisy. We thought it was a fine KAO for our overnight stay. - wtravlr1

The road in is gravel and dusty but once you reach the campground entrance it looks park like. We had a deluxe pull through site that had plenty of room and was very nice. Site was situated so we got shade from out camper in the afternoon, very nice. Lots of full time residents but sites were well maintained. Lots for kids to do but still quiet at night. We would definitely stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

This is a sel-pay park with over 100 sites many of which have lake views and 50 amp. We did have a tough time finding a site large enough for our 40 foot fifth wheel but eventually managed to squeeze into 17 although we were facing the wrong way. Views of the lake were amazing and they had hiking trails and beaches. Really enjoyed our overnight here and would highly recommend it. Oh and the dumpstation was one of the cleanest we have ever seen. - Lee and Trace
