4 Parks near Wamego, Kansas
Mar 2016 - $27.00
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

We were at Calvin's for 4 nights 2 different times in May. We were there in our 35' trailer. Our site (14) was shady and paved. The pull-through sites were all paved. There is also a dump station next to the office. There is a storm shelter (which we had to use one night!) with a bathroom. Be prepared for local train activity 3-4 times a day but you get used to it. A GPS will not find Calvin's correctly. In Wamego you will travel on 4th street past the city park. Once you get to the industrial section and Caterpillar tractor company Calvin's is just past the row of trees. - SubSailor

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.

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

Other than no cable or WIFI, this park is just about perfect - only about 25 spaces all basically with a view of beautiful Tuttle Creek reservoir. All (except one) are back-in spaces but there's generally enough room to maneuver OK. Electric at 50 Amps and water supply is fine. Each space has a nice aluminum picnic table in the space and the spaces are generally fairly flat so leveling isn't too bad. There is only one dump station and it's at the top of the hill (whereas all the spaces are down the hill close to the water) - not a problem but you should be aware of it. The onsite staff are very friendly and try to be helpful. We got our 50% discount from using our federal parks "senior pass" - quite a bargain for a good park. - Mountain RV User
