5 RV Parks near Fort Scott, Kansas
Jul 2018 - $10.00
This is a public park in my home town and our first experience pulling our trailer. While trying to level the camper is a little difficult here, we had no problems getting our 29 foot bunkhouse through the roads or turns. However, while unhooking we did have the road blocked. Everyone waited or went around. It wasn't a big deal. It's nice and quiet here. Place where you can enjoy some time, fish, visit local sights, or in our case be "back home" for a couple days. Sit around the campsite and enjoy friends and family. No, if you have a huge rig you probably won't make it here. But again we pulled ours in with an over sized suv. Another issue is the closest dump site is the fair grounds, so you will have to hook up to dump tanks. - Newtocamper

I called and made reservations for 2 nights. The lady assured me we would fit. We are a 40 ft RV. We got there and found we would not fit. There were to many huge trees with branches hanging down. The space she reserved for us was not long enough and we would have been in the road. The street was very narrow and went down a steep slope. This place would be ok for a small 5th wheel or travel trailer 30'. The next day she told me there was camping about 14 blocks down Horton at the fair grounds. - M.Register

We tried to stay at Gunn Park but were not successful. The signage in the campground is poor and roads are very narrow. The campground is obviously for campers under 25 feet. The campsites are not well defined, most are not level. The electric hookups are primitive consisting of only a 3x5 box containing a single 30 amp socket with no breakers. We were totally out of place here with our 38 foot rig. - junkmanstan

The campgrounds are nice. Every spot has plenty of shade and have plenty of room between sites. If the site across from me wasn't empty, backing in would've been a bit more exciting. The park itself was nice. It was peaceful and had plenty to do. It was a quick poke into Fort Scott. We plan to return in the near future. The quoted rate includes a entry fee into the park. - Slapwacky

We called this Lake Farlington when Dad brought us here as kids. That's still the name of the lake, but for camping you have to look for Crawford State Park. My brother and I would start out fishing, but soon jumped in to swim, when the fish didn't jump onto our hooks. It's a beautiful place, and the campground is quite comfortable and convenient, except that the only sewer connection is for the campground host. (I'll have to think about applying for that position for the summer, when I'm finished with this tour.) The sites are back-in, and perpendicular to the lanes, so getting into them by myself requires a skill I'm yet lacking, but I got there, mainly because all the other sites were empty (no one goes camping in Kansas in December, and for good reason), and I could use them to advantage. Once there, though, this is the kind of park I'd like to stay in, assuming it had sewer. Well-treed, but not overgrown. Long walks around the lake. My kind of place. - Jim Fulton

Beautiful park built by the CCC, we camped mid week and the campground was not full. No maps were available and it took time to locate where everything was located. There is a road that goes completely around the lake and campsites are spread out. Sites with electric only (no water) are on the side of the campground road closest to the lake, sites with electric and water on the opposite side.
We camped in Rocky Cove and there was no bathroom in the campground so you would have to walk or drive a short distance to Oak Point to get to them. Showers were OK, showing some wear and faucets were broken in some stalls. - Ocotillo

Very nice people running the park. There is road noise the closer your site is to the highway. Sites are a little close to each other, but the interior roads are wide and turns are easy. 2 minute walk to the GM dealer in case your vehicle needs service, like my truck did. No fenced dog run. - TH travelers

The park is on the north end of town with easy access off the freeway. The Managers were very helpful and were escorted to the site. The sites are long and nice spacing. All the services are good. there are several longer term people but all were well kept. The only down side is the entrance in has some rough spots as you enter the park. the interior roads are gravel and ok other than entrance. We were visiting the college here and it worked well. - JDR

This is a fantastic park, and the couple running it are very friendly and helpful. We were in a Van Towing and they made sure we were as close to the bathrooms as possible. They have a pool, and miniature golf course, and a very nice playground. Love this park. - User2172

This State Park is remote. It had 4 camp sites 2 of which were in the making. There was nothing there except shade, a small stream and lots of hiking trails, a nature lover's delight, quiet and peaceful. Toilets were pit toilets a quarter mile walk away to the parking area at the trail head. If you have a motor home 24 feet or smaller you will be okay. Maybe a small trailer would also, but otherwise not good. A camper van fine. The ranger guy was weird and acted as if my being there was a bother to him. No personality, very dull and stand-offish. The woman in the office seemed intimidated by him and kept quiet. Very bad vibes. I would not go back there. - Traveler John
