2 RV Parks near Norton, Kansas
Sep 2015 - $20.00
We had planned to stay at Prairie Dog State Park, but decided to stay in town after asking the librarian if Norton had an RV Park. She said that "there used to one south of town on State Street, but I don't know if it is still open. But, if it is open, it is right across the street from the best restaurant in town. And be sure to order their mashed potatoes--they can't be beat!" So, we drove south on State (US 283) and saw a faded sign for the Norton RV Park in front of a ramshackle house. A neighbor told us that "the owner lives in the house on the hill up the road." So, we paid the lady on the hill $20, spent a night in a level full hookup site, ate at "the best place in town" (and the mashed potatoes were good), and, while sitting on our sofa and gazing out the back window, watched the Norton High JV football team run all over the poor visiting Colby HS JV team. Now how can you beat a pull-through full hookup RV site, a good dinner, and entertainment for that price? Well, that price plus the cost of two dinners! - fanrgs

A really nice state park with lots of wildlife around. We never interacted with park personnel, but they had online reservations and a check-in process that made things easy. Not much civilization around, but that is a positive, not a negative! - SportDawgs

Arrived on a Monday evening & our campsite was still covered in the weekend's trash. We gathered it up and took it to the dumpster which was overflowing. The showers were clean but the ENTIRE room got wet, new shower nozzles needed badly. The park was beautiful and we enjoyed the cooler evening air, breeze and sunset. The sites are rather close together but it appears that many of the guests are locals who use their RVs as weekend lake houses. I would imagine that weekends might not be relaxing for those of us that are just using campgrounds as nightly stops on the way to a destination. - Hidden Barb

We had a "prime" site, which I guess is because it's a pull-through. Our site, and the others in the Prairie Dog campground section, have water and electricity. Our site was large and well shaded. This is a beautiful, well maintained campground on the north side of reservoir. The campground has easy access to the lake. This state park is large. We stayed in the Prairie Dog campground, but there are other campgrounds in the park with more secluded sites near the lake. These looked like great options if you're willing to forgo electricity and water hook ups. Even with the $5 per day entrance fee we had to pay, in addition to the campground fee, we thought this state park was an excellent value. There's only one trail in the park (an open, exposed 1.5 mile nature trail). The visitor center had a map for the Norton State Wildlife Area on the south side of the reservoir, so we headed over there to ride our mountain bikes on the gravel roads. We had scenic views of the surrounding countryside and good views of the dam and the state park on the other side of the lake. The nearest town to the campground is Norton, about 3 miles away. It has basic services, including a coin laundromat (the state park doesn't provide laundry facilities). For additional services, Oberlin, KS is about a half hour west of the campground. - tripster
