4 Parks near Wamego, Kansas

My opinion of this campground, and I use the word loosely, will be completely different than the others. We got there in the driving rain and wind. The entire park was a mud hole. Our 50amp site was attached to the storage building next door, no water, no sewer and in about 2-3 inches of water. No way we were going to plug in standing in water without having a circuit breaker to turn off. The owner was very unaccommodating. During our conversation with the owner in the office, we noticed there were no restrooms, no showers and only 1 washer and 1 dryer. We didn't stay and we won't ever go back. The rating of 1 is a little bit high. - kathiecarlson

Very clean park with good potential. Plantings indicate desire to improve appearance. Setting is not attractive (next to owner's storage units and a manufacturing plant) in an industrial park. Very clean & large grassy area for walking our dog. Our pull-through space, while not concrete, was level without having to extend our jacks. Very quiet; the few trains we heard became rather pleasant. On arrival, manager suggested we not drink water because it wasn't safe. WiFi not reliable. No cable TV, although we knew that. Managers changed; new manager had no record of our reservation, but they did have an open spot. This is primarily an extended stay park. - Dobiedaddy

A fine place for an overnight stay. The back-in sites are gravel, and some of the pull-through sites are paved. Most of the sites are shaded. There is a single bathroom in the storm shelter, and there are no showers. The manager was very helpful in getting us backed in to our site and hooked up. - barrettjl

After crossing the railroad track, the atmosphere is like a little frontier town. The greeting was neutral and my receipt doesn't detail fees. Our site was level and near the showers with good shade. Utilities are adequate, and air TV was fine. Directions were clear and although between railroad tracks and highway, the campground is relatively quiet. It is such a good overnight that park was well occupied by nightfall. It is comforting to have a storm shelter. - Yeager

Campground is about a mile of I-70 just west of Topeka. Staff was friendly. Mention that you saw their web site and you will get a 15% discount. There is a railroad track next to the campground. The train traffic didn't annoy us because our air conditioner drowned it out. The campground had lots of area to walk our two Maltese and there was a narrow creek that backed up to the campground. Laundry services were available as well as fire rings at each campsite, with pull-throughs available. There was also a playground for children. - urlookingood

A significant number of sites appeared to be occupied by permanent residents. They seemed oblivious to campground etiquette and management was not responsive to issues. The trains were a nightmare. We happen to like trains, but the crossing is just down the road a bit and east bound trains start blasting their horns just as they pull alongside the first row of RVs. No air conditioning could cover the sounds jolting us awake. In one 24 hour period, 30 trains were counted. We would not stay here again. - NoPlaceLikeRoam

Two nights in state park in off season, only approved sites had water and electric turned on though RV'S could boondock as able. Very quiet and clean. Good distance between sites. Good water pressure. Two dump stations for quick and easy usage. Most, if not all, sites pull through. Nice new playground. $19 per night, $5 per day vehicle fee, $3 processing fee (out-of-state fees). Wood $3. Facilities not open before April opening date. Camped in a travel trailer. - Next Mission

The state park is quite large and has a few different campgrounds spread out below Tuttle Creek dam. Our pull-thru was a crescent shaped driveway off of a one-lane road. 30 amps plus water at site with dump stations in the area. Roads and pads are asphalt. Site included a gravel patio, new picnic table, and fire ring. The campground is laid out so there are wide green spaces with trees between rows. Costs $18 plus $5 per day for the tow car. There is a small camp store with firewood and free little library. Boat launches, canoe rentals, disc golf in walking distance. 15 minutes to K State or to shopping. - 42lena

This is a very nice campground with level pads. Most of the pads are pea gravel/clay and where the full hook-ups are, they are black-top. I spend every winter there to trout fish and bird hunt. The water is mostly turned off that time of year, but they do have a few frost free hydrants that can be used to fill your holding tank. The staff at the state park office are very friendly and extremely helpful. The park has a disc golf course, playgrounds, and very small store that is open most days and a 10 acre pond where trout are stocked from November to March. The state park is located a few miles from Manhattan, KS. - Frank H.

Great views overlooking the lake but sites are almost all back in and are tight to maneuver. Stayed here as park is very close to Manhattan and KState (and no other decent parks within 15 miles). No sewer hookups but there is a dump station close to the entrance. No wifi or cable either but satellite reception is fine. Make your reservation online (Recreation.gov) as while the staff is friendly they're not very efficient and service is "slow". Select your site carefully as some of the backin sites are very tight for a long rig (preferred sites would be 1-9 and 12-17; site 11 is the only pull through and it gets booked up early on most weekends ). - Mountain RV User

Wow, what a deal. If you have an America the Beautiful Golden Age Pass: you get half-off of an already low rate of $18/night. Tuttle Creek Cove COE is a well kept campground with 50 amp power and water. The sites are roomy and well spaced with fire ring, stand-up grill and lantern pole. Excellent power, no voltage dips even on 100+ degree days.
Many sites are well shaded but the branches were too low for our tall 5th wheel. We chose instead a site on top of the ridge where there were no trees. This had us backed in with our rear picture window facing out over the lake. One of the best views we have had out that back window in the four years we have been full-timing. The sunrises were stunning.
Verizon was excellent, LTE for our jetpack with data rates at 6mbs or better. Satellite setup was a breeze. - jperry29

Some of the camp loops are on a bluff while other loops are close the water's edge. All of the interior roads are on asphalt and are hilly. The sites are on crushed asphalt and rocks. Due to the terrain, some sites sloop more than others. The electrical box consists of 50/30/15 amp electrical service. The voltage was strong - hovering around 122 volts. This was surprising since it was very hot and all of the rigs were using AC.
Both the utility box and water spigot was located at the back of the site. All sites were back-in except for one site. All of the sites can accommodate a large rig and there was an area within the site to park a boat. All sites have a fire ring, BBQ stand and a picnic table. The one dump station is located at the entrance of the park. Fresh water is also available there.
The bathroom and showers were clean but not very appealing. The park also has a boat launch, swim, and a number of playground areas.
Verizon air card and cell phone reception was good. The gates to the park are closed from 10 PM until 6 AM. It was very quiet at night.
We would come back to this park if we were in the area. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs
