Extremely Noisy!
We stayed here for a week and considered leaving after the first night. If you are a light sleeper, do not stay here. There is a construction company and some sort of factory directly across the street from the spot we were in (#13). Constant stream of trucks carrying shipping containers pulling in all day; very loud. Some sort of steam blow off from the factory that is so loud I’m not sure how it is legal? If you are outside when this happens it hurts your ears. If you are inside, you can’t hear the TV. This happens every 5 or so hours at all hours; even at 3 AM! The staff was very nice and the water pressure was excellent! The power never flickered even with a few heavy thunderstorms.

I found this place to be a good stop. Only one shower, but ok. Site was rough. Overall it was ok.

Pretty But Noisy
I would give this place 3.5 stars for the visual atmosphere, however, given the noise levels from the interstate and highway, I can't give it four. It has lots of trees but they don't seem to do much to block the constant noise. I did like the contactless check-in. I would stay here again for one night in a pinch but would not enjoy being here long-term.

Too Tight
This is a clean campground but it is too tight for longer campers. I would not recommend anything over 30ft stop here. We had to ask the neighbors to move their truck so we can get out and we have a 36ft 5th wheel. Also we had a 6am wake up call from the local military base from aircraft. We won't stay here again.

Ok
Different half round pull - throughs, lots of longer term or working residents. Nothing wrong with it, just not what we usually think of for traveling through. Friendly people. (5/13/2020)

Med sized park close to highway. Paved roads, everything you need. Reasonably priced and Wifi. Only down side is no local TV channels. Friendly, not far from ft riley. Stayed while getting vehicle serviced. Will return. Well kept.

Polite Staff
We pulled in without reservations and they didn’t have any available, but they recommended another park down the road and even called them to verify that they had sites available.

Great Camp!
Dry, solid roads, scenic & grassy, peaceful, very friendly and good price. Every section has a sewer hookup for the price they advertise. (Unlike others who give you the rate for the worst lot they have, then you find out why and pay much more for a decent one.)
