We’re right in the middle of summer, and what better time to enjoy the great outdoors than now?! If you enjoy camping and the beautiful Kansas wilderness, you will definitely want to check out these 10 unforgettable camping spots.
1.) Milford Lake (Junction City)
Whether you prefer camping in a tent, RV, or an air-conditioned cabin, Milford Lake is the place for you! While you're there, plan to fish around the largest lake in Kansas.
2.) Cimarron National Grassland (Elkhart)
Silence is golden, and at Cimarron National Grassland, you will find plenty of gorgeous, secluded areas -- perfect for a relaxing camping trip!
3.) El Dorado State Park (El Dorado)
Located just 30 minutes from the big city (Wichita), El Dorado State Park offers ample camping in the stunning Flint Hills -- it wasn't named one of the top camping spots in the country for nothing!
4.) Clinton Lake (Lawrence)
Do you consider yourself to be more of a glamper than a camper? Then Clinton Lake (with its 7 spacious cabins) is the perfect spot for you! If you prefer roughing it, Clinton Lake also offers good, old fashioned campgrounds!
5.) Scott State Park (Scott City)
In addition to the beautiful campgrounds (for both humans and our equestrian friends), Scott State Park is a history buff's paradise with its Native American remains, historic Steele home, and much more.
6.) Tuttle Creek State Park (Manhattan)
Tuttle Creek is home to 159 water/electric campsites, 8 electric/water/sewer campsites, 24 electric-only campsites, 20 electric sites with community water at the Randolph Area horse campground, and 500 primitive campsites. Need I say more?
7.) Pomona State Park (Pomona)
Thirty miles south of our state capital lies Pomona with its family friendly campsites, abundance of wildlife, and historic ties to the Santa Fe Trail.
8.) Cedar Bluff State Park (Ellis)
Cedar Bluff is made up of two unique areas (the Bluffton and the Page Creek), both containing utility campsites, boat ramps, and community shelters. **Something to also keep in mind is that the Bluffton area is more developed than Page Creek**
9.) Eisenhower State Park (Osage City)
Eisenhower State Park is as great as our 34th president with its 186 utility campsites, non-utility sites, cabin, yurts, and recreational opportunities galore! We like Ike!
10.) Wilson State Park (Wilson)
Located in the heart of Kansas is Wilson Lake and its scenic views, excellent fishing, and hunting -- spend your day enjoying all that Wilson has to offer before calling it a night in your RV or tent!
