The rate reflects the $15 camping fee plus $5 facilities fee for a site with 30 amp electric. The prior reviewers are correct; the state must have decided to save money on signs because there are very few of them. If you come in from Interstate 80, you will turn onto North Lake Road. If you continue on this paved road you will pass an area on the left that has the dump station and non-hookup camping. If you continue on the main road, you will cross the Reservoir inlet bridge just as you curve back to the left. The entrance to the Kansas Point campground will be on your left just after that bridge. This is the campground that has electric hookups. The campground is about seven miles from Interstate. The short dirt road into the campground was very rough and wash boarded, but that just means you have to go a little slower. The sites are attractive enough, not spectacular, but nice. Some are along the inlet canal or reservoir, but when we stayed the water in the lake was very low, so not really waterfront. The sites are well separated, but there is no vegetation for privacy. This campground seems to be open year round. There are water fill taps in the campground. The 30 amp service seemed to be OK, but it did go down in voltage one time that our management system cut it off. We had no problem getting satellite and we had good Verizon coverage for both voice and 4G data. We stayed on a Sunday night and there was only one other camper. On Sunday, we had many driving by folks out sightseeing. We enjoyed our stay. It was very quiet and dark at night. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at Lake Maloney SRA in a Motorhome.
Signage is a bit confusing. Entered area marked Maloney SRA but there were only primitive sites. Got back on main road, found "Lake Maloney Inlet Rec Area", "Kansas Point" and found the electric only sites. $15 per night (+ NE $5 fee) (We purchased a NE state parks pass for $25 so we don't have to pay the $5 daily fee.) Lots of water fill stations near campsites. Pit toilets. The dump station is near the primitive sites. Lots of folks fishing. A good campground if you are looking to fish. We camped at Lake Maloney SRA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is nice looking small to medium size reservoir lake located in the country, far from busy roads. The campground host was very friendly and we enjoyed the "free format" camping. He told us to feel free to drive on the grass and camp anywhere that was not otherwise signposted. There were only a couple of other people camping here that night, so we had a lovely view of the lake and enjoyed a night of boondocking. Despite the 2009 reviewer, we did not see any evidence of a separate campground with hookups, nor was this mentioned by the host. Detractors were: not much of a swimming area (better boating lake). A moderate amount of trash was scattered around the campground and some had evidently even been mulched by their mower. The bathhouse met only minimal standards for cleanliness. There was dirt around the edges everywhere, paint was not well maintained, big spiderwebs all over, no soap provided. Hot showers were available but you had to pay for them with quarters. The dirt (not gravel) road is heavily rutted. It looked like a heavy rig could easily get stuck in wet weather. Another camper told us that the whole place is full during the high season. We would have found that to be pretty miserable given the status of the park and facilities. For an overnight visit in the off season, however, this was a pleasant place to break up a long drive. We camped at Lake Maloney SRA in a Tent Trailer.
Very unkempt, not mowed, not cleaned up from previous campers; toilets are pit type but light bulbs are removed and no toilet paper. One had excrement on the floor. Pretty site but would probably not stay here again under these conditions. Signage to campsites very poor: we drive totally around the basin before asking twice for help on locating Kansas Point. We camped at Lake Maloney SRA in a Fifth Wheel.

There are 56 sites with water and electrical. Other sites without electrical other side of reservoir. Interior roads gravel as are parking pads for rigs. Several miles out of town and several miles beyond primitive sites where campground host is located. He was very helpful in directing me to electrical sites. Reservoir low and campground empty other than us. Trees provide shade for some sites. Nice place to stay. Dump station at entry to primitive sites. We camped at Lake Maloney SRA in a Motorhome.
