Traveling full-time in a 42-foot coach we've stayed in over 400 RV Parks. We stayed here during August 2019 for one night and we also stayed here in 2018 for four nights. We really enjoy staying at this RV campground. The campground is located in a very quiet residential area. All sites are spacious and face the river. Be aware this is a first-come, first-served campground so no reservations are accepted. (1) Dust, some parks are so dusty that even after just a couple nights your unit needs a bath, this place has no dust. (3) Level pads, big coaches need paved or thick gravel pads that are level. We give this park a 3-star rating for having level gravel sites. This park had the most generous sites we'd ever encountered! The amount of space between sites was absolutely amazing. No crowded sites here! (3) We live in the age of WIFI technology and there is nothing to stop any RV Park across this country from investing in doing WIFI properly. This RV Park does offer WIFI, however we did not realize that until we were ready to leave. (4) Maneuverability, some parks have very narrow roads which make backing up and turning very difficult, we found this park to have plenty of room to maneuver. (5) Satellite, satellite reception can be hard to receive whenever there's large trees. If you stay away from the sites with the tall trees to the south you should receive reception here. (6) Phone Service, we have AT&T which worked great here. (7) Dog play and potty, plenty of room to walk your dog here, but no off-leash fenced dog area.

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 3 nights in a site for big rigs. This is a cute little campground and pretty quiet for the most part and is perfect stop for one or two nights. About 8-12 full hookups with 30 amp service. All sites are level and your view is along a river with many large old trees. $15 for off season and $20 for in season. As an aside unlike so many commercial campgrounds the free internet access has great bandwidth. It is first come basis (no reservations). The reason Ellis Lakeside Campground is not receiving five stars is because tree limbs hit our roof. That is bad maintenance! We did hear a couple trains during the nights so bring ear plugs if noises keep you awake. Also most important: Our GPS told us to turn right on Monroe which was not correct. Don't do that! At Monroe you will see the RV Park on the left, and the park on the right. TURN LEFT!

Lovely little campground by a lake. Only about dozen sites and first come, first served. The sites are gravel but pretty level. Wifi close to the bathhouse. Bathhouse is older but cleaned daily. We've stopped there twice driving through Kansas. You're only about 3 blocks from a small grocery store.

This small gem is my favorite when crossing Kansas. Not many slots, maybe 10, but full hookups, free wifi, and very quiet. The self registration is only $20. A real safe place in a small town about a mile from the freeway.

This is a wonderful little campground. Small, quiet and easily accessible,. Do not follow GPS it will take you to the wrong street. Go to 8th street and turn left. It is a city park that faces a small lake and its perfect for an overnight stop. The sites are all pull thrus and are long enough that you don't have to unhook. $20 with electricity and water. There is a bathroom with several free showers and a sewer dump. Get there early because there are only 12 sites and they fill up fast. No reservations, just first come-first serve.
