This is an older park with multiple loops around the lake area. We were in Cedar Ridge. Our site was a pull through with water and electric. Site was just barely long enough for rig and toad. Campground needed more maintenance than it was getting—grass needed mowing, museum was closed. High water closed some roads. Bathrooms were quite old and need repair. There was laundry available and it was clean and cheap. Lawrence is about 25 minutes and Topeka about 30. We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Motorhome.

Cedar Ridge CG is part of the COE Bloomington East complex. Our site was C007 and was a wide/long pull through with 50A Electric and water. There are plenty of long back-in 50/30A sites as well. There are no sites right on the lake but some of the back-ins were within a couple of hundred feet. Our Sprint Service was really good in the park (was told Verizon was good also). Broadcast TV will get you about 25 channels. Some geocaches in the area. Good-sized lake with several boat ramps. $11 Rate is with the America the Beautiful Senior Pass. We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Great Park, The facilities are clean. Quiet next to Lake but still not far from Lawrence and about 45 minutes to Kansas City. Only drawback is no sewer but dump is right outside Park and is free. We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Motorhome.

The Lake is next to Park. Lawrence is close by. Kansas City is about 45 Minutes away with lots to do from Pro Sports to Museums. Also Topeka is only 20 minutes away. Kansas University is in Lawrence.

This is our second time to visit this park and we will probably come back should we visit the area again. The only drawback is that it is 20 miles from Lawrence, but if you just want to relax and chill, this is the place. Dump station is well situated on the property for incoming and outgoing traffic. We camped here in a 45 ft. motorhome and the sites can handle us. We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Motorhome.

The park is excellent. We were there 2 weeks and loved the park. The sites are very large and easy to pull in. The reason for the #5 is that the showers weren't cleaned, not even once. Usually the Army Corps of Engineers parks are very clean and we were very surprised that this beautiful had showers that weren't cleaned once the whole time we were there. We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Motorhome.

All I can recommend is that you stock up on necessities before pulling in here because the nearest shopping of any mention is over 20 miles away! There is a very small store in Clinton but mostly carries mini mart type stuff. Large wide/long pull through lots plus long back-ins. We didn't see any lots right on the lake but some of the back-ins were about 150' from it. Quiet at night even though it was fairly busy the weekend we were there. Dark skies which are great for star gazing. Verizon hotspot and phone worked fine and, although they don't have cable, we got about 20 to 25 channels on the antenna. Some geocaches in the area. Good-sized lake with several boat ramps. Rate is the Senior rate. We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Fifth Wheel.

You expect things to be a little low-rent and utilitarian at a COE campground, and yeah--the shower/restrooms are nothing fancy, but they *work*, water pressure and temperature in the showers is nice, and they're kept nice and clean. The grounds themselves are attractive and pleasant, and staff very friendly and helpful, from the attendant to the custodian to the volunteers. We stayed here two full weeks, and would again in a heartbeat, once it warms back up in the spring! We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Tent.

This campground is in Clinton Lake State Park. Our site was a nice pull through with newly paved roads and pad. The sites were nice sized with grass and a picnic table. The bad thing about this campground was the bugs. You could not be outside of the camper without being swarmed. I have camped at state parks and national parks and never had this kind of bug problem. They were everywhere including the bathrooms and showers. There was a nice beach close the the campground but there had been so much rain when we camped here, that the beach was flooded. Also, the bugs were at the beach. If they dealt with the bugs and cleaned up the restrooms, this would be a fabulous place to camp. We would not stay here again. We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our one-night stay. Our campsite was pull-thru, level, shady, and pleasant with 50A service. The beach is a long hike away, so bring a bike or a car to get there. The playground equipment is new. The management is nice. We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Motorhome.

Site was gravel next to the woods. Many sites were in the open and I doubt that there is any shade in the summer. Very quiet and close to water recreation. Enjoyed my stay. We camped at Cedar Ridge COE in a Travel Trailer.
