This is a very nice Federal Park that we continue to visit after many years. The sites are generous, the grounds are well kept and all the people who work here are friendly and helpful. This facility is very strict about quiet hour, and no alcohol consumption. The gate is locked from 10pm until 7am. There is a new playground for the kids. The only negative is that the low water in Lake Lanier makes the sandy beach useless. The campground usually clears out on Sunday and is fairly unpopulated until Friday. It is open only for the Summer months. A reservation is recommended for the weekends. Each site has water and electricity. There is a pull through dump and several clean shower houses. The washers and dryers are very reasonably priced. We camped here for 2 weeks.
According to the owner this is the oldest campground in Kansas and dates from 1886. There are many huge Sycamore trees which provide the sites with lots of shade. The sites on the West side where we stayed are not well marked but they are all grassy. There are more sites behind the roller rink which seem to be more popular. There are many things for children to do such as roller skating in the enclosed rink, and miniature golf. The buildings are all interesting as is the hotel and the Spring. We would definitely stay there again.
This is a beautiful park on a large lake. There are nice hiking and biking trails. It is a rather small and popular campground so it would be wise to make a reservation. There are some large speed bumps so travel slowly. The Yurts are very interesting and might be fun to rent. They are right on the lake with their own docks. We did not have a reservation and we were lucky to get a site on the water. We would stay here again. We camped for just one night.
This is very nicely maintained State Park. There are several different areas to camp in and the one we picked was on the top of a hill. All of the sites had electricity and water. Our site had a large cleared area with picnic table. The lake is a short drive down a winding road. You are not able to see the lake from any of the campsites. There is a good centrally located dump and a fresh water fill station. There is a small playground. Each of the areas has their own camp host who can help you with where to camp. There are many trees and plenty of shade. We were not able to use our satellite dish. We would stay here again and for a longer period of time.
A long drive from the Interstate but well-worth it. They are working on repaving the roads so we did have some stop and go. The destination is well-worth the aggravation as the scenery is spectacular. We got there in the early afternoon and we were able to get an electric site which are first come, first served. It is "on the road" parking with the electric box at the side. There is no water hookup. There is a trail to the Visitor Center, the Gift Shop in the main building, and a restaurant. We would definitely stay here for a longer time on our next trip.
This is a somewhat crowded park. The interior roads are very narrow. Be sure to watch out for the roof overhang on the office. All the interior roads are one-way. We had a neighbor come in at midnight in a big diesel hauler pulling a 5th wheel which was very noisy. They also left before 7 a.m. the next morning. No gate on the entrance or exit. Close to the Interstate so you hear the trucks, too. We would probably not stay here again.
This was our 3rd stay here and there have been many physical changes for the better. However, there used to be a park attendant to take the money and oversee the grounds. Now, there is an envelope payment system which is very confusing. There is a "host camper" during the evening to sell wood. People are allowed to come and pay for a site but don't have to occupy it. This is a nice park with lots of shade trees and grass. It is easy to find and close to the interstate.
This campgroud is showing it's age. The roads in the campgroud are very narrow and the sites are small. Big dropoffs between the blacktop and the ground, even in the sites. It looks like all the soil has washed out. Unable to reach the water or electric hookups because they are between two sites close to the road. Stayed for 1 night. Would not stay here again.
This is a very nice State Park. There are many trees which can make it a challenge to back into a site. Lots of good trails for biking and hiking.It is very convenient to Gainesville for shopping, dining and sightseeing. There is a lake in the park for fishing, kayaking and rowing. We stayed here twice and would stay again.
This is our third stay here. We camped for one night. It is at least 10 miles off the Interstate and the roads are narrow and winding. It is a lovely, shaded park with small campsites. There is a host to take your money. We would stay here again. Very quiet park.
We spent a week here over the 4th of July. The fireworks were canceled due to heat, drought and high winds. The park is very clean and well-maintained. The word "Lakeside" is misleading as you are about a mile from the lake, however, many campers are there with their boats and jet skis. The sites are all double-wide in order to park your camper, vehicle and boat/trailer. The owners are on site and are friendly and helpful. There is a small bar, gift shop and store. You can also get a pizza cooked to order. We would definitely stay here again but during a cooler month.
We camped her for 1 night. Very helpful host couple.They drove me up to the payment box which is a good distance from the campground. Nice campground. Level site. Lots of trees. There is just one TV channel on the airways. Good Verizon cell and wi-fi coverage. We would stay here again.
This is an old campground with small, narrow sites, Unable to run the A/C, TV and Toaster together.Using all three tripped the circuit breaker on the outside box. We stayed one night. Would not stay here again.
This is a horse friendly campground adjacent to the Custer battlefield. The sites are on a hillside but they are terraced so ours was very level. Nice hiking trails. Free ice cream on arrival! This was our second visit. We would stay there again.
We love this park. This was our second stay. We stayed on site 38 for a month. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. There's a gift shop and plenty of information on the local sights. the laundry room is open 24 hrs a day. We will stay here again.
Nice park with lots of big trees. A little tight getting into our site due to the closeness of the trees. Lots of pretty summer flowers. The only negative was the amount of children in the small pool. The owners open the pool in the summer for local children to pay to swim. No room for the campers from noon to 6pm.
