We stayed here 1 night, with a reservation. Beautiful park with good trails for walking after a long day of traveling. Park was well kept up. The showers were not useable, plumbing appeared to have been dismantled. Surprisingly there was a laundry room with working washers and dryers. We would stay here again. - cr180

The camp ground was amazing. Stayed at the west equestrian campground with full hookups at a lake side site. The gravel pads are well kept up and really long. Sites are angled so that the RV's aren't right next to each other. Some sights very open and some with shade. The campground had a couple yurts and cabins too. Water pressure is high so a pressure regulator is advised. Lots of birds- including pelicans and herons! Will definitely return! - NanciRV

We stayed in the Doud campground in campsite 120. Our campiset was full hook up, The full hook up sites in Doud campground was filled the surrounding campsite were electric only. There were a couple of campers the electric only sites. It was a really hot weekend. The other campers were friendly. We have a 22" RV and the other RV's dwarfed ours. On Saturday we rented two Kayaks We rented them for two hours so the camp volunteer hauled the Kayaks to the cove we kayaked in. The also have trails for hiking, biking, and horse back riding. The best part of the camp were the volunteers, they operated a small store and the Kayak canoe rentals. They gave our dog a treats every time he went into the store. Our dog really loved the volunteers. They also gave kids free pop cycles. On Saturday afternoon we also drove to Emporia and toured William Allen White's home Red Rocks State Historical Site. https://www.kshs.org/red_rocks - DuaneG

Management was very friendly and helpful when needed. All site long enough to pull through and no need to unhook. Very close to an excellent restaurant with buffet. Able to easily accomodiate large groups such as ours - aliner man

The entry is rutted but the interior lanes are acceptable. Nice person but needs help. Mowing was not getting done. Sewer cap at our site was "mudded in" and could not be removed and I had no time to dig it out. W/E were fine. CG has a large tornado shelter. Mix of seasonals and traveling workers, majority of the rigs in good shape although some sites were cluttered. It is fine for a day or two. - gumper

Very nice park, well maintained and clean. Spacious site with easy access in all ways. Quiet even though there was some kind of a car show going on nearby. Just passing through on a destination, would stay here again and longer. - The Border Collies

Previous reviews go back to 2007. It is now August, 2018 and my review echos the others. You have to want to get here, but once here you could spend a day or a few days and enjoy your stay. Because of costs we always try to find a COE campground. This is tied with my favorite. Well kept, wide roads, large sites and great camp host. Park typically full on Summer weekends, but we arrived on Sunday evening and were the only rv in the Park. Cell service was strong for Verizon and AT&T. Electric and water only. We spent one night. On a large lake. - Mike from Bama

We reserved #45 and found out when we arrived that it included #48 at the additional charge. Level paved sites with plenty of grassy area. Fire rings were not near enough to site to be useful. Quiet even on the weekend when it filled up. To access approach from Osage City since Turkey Point is on the opposite side of the lake from the Outlet Park and COE headquarters. Fishing access within walking distance of our site. There was a marina somewhere because many of the weekenders had boats. - Betsy_02

We really enjoy camping here. There is a lot of shade and easy access to the water. They have recently eliminated the vault toilets and made them into flush toilet, and shower, which was a huge improvement to the area we camped in The campground hosts are great. They do their jobs without being "rule nazis". This is just a beautiful quiet campground with lots of space between the individual campsites. - benidew

Our third stay here. Another very nice COE Park. I’d avoid the pull through spots, too close to traffic. Plenty of lake view sites. A little traffic noise from Highway 75 and train noise as well. Both tolerable. - rwthomasjrfamily

Beautiful park, great view from the laundry room! Full hookups for $11, can't beat that. - max7_3

Another excellent Corps park with a layout of two loops around a lake - interesting that it was signed with warnings about water contact and how to deal with fish due to algae. One thought for summer camping would be to find the shady spots since the rv sites are asphalt and would be hot after a long sunny day. However, being a "road", the sites were fairly level. Power was good and water was available at the sites. Some minor road noise, as we were at the end of the southern loop near the road. Nice walk around the lake for the dog with a good path. - cherib

Pomona State Park is a wonderful state park with a lot of good amenities (lake, beaches, hiking trails, boat ramps). Our nightly rate reflects buying the KS annual camping pass, plus the KS annual vehicle permits (one per vehicle RV+Car), plus 3 utilities (50 amp elec, water, sewer) for a month.
We stayed here in February and really appreciated the ability to stay in a state park setting, with full hookups, in winter.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Even though we were one of the few campers here, this time of year, the park was regularly patrolled and it felt very safe. Staff was onsite during the week and readily available to answer questions or to help as needed.
The park is generally in good repair and well maintained. Some of the picnic tables, at a few sites, are in desperate need of replacement; but otherwise the park facilities were in good working order.
The park is pretty, quiet, and serene. Although we could hear (several) barking dogs from the surrounding private residences outside the park, there was otherwise no road noise, railroad tracks, etc to detract from the park's serenity.
There are quite a few campsites/camp-loops, ranging from water-front primitive camping to full-hookup RV sites available. We stayed in the Burning Heart camp-loop, which has full-hookups and is available for long(er) term stays.
The roads are paved, leading to gravel sites. Most sites were generally level and wide enough for an awning or slide-outs. There is not a lot of visual separation between the sites but they are well separated and about average for a state park (vs a tightly packed RV park).
Laundry facilities are available all year and the machines were in good working order, inside of a clean and usable laundry room.
The site had 50 amp service, a frost free (non-heated) hydrant, and sewer hookup. All utilities worked well. Other sites offer 30amp and water only, and there are several primitive campsites throughout. All sites have a fire-ring and a picnic table.
We had reasonable Verizon wireless internet access and had good ATT cellular access. Both were within 2-4 bars of LTE service (unboosted).
The park is located between two small towns, Pomona to the east and Lyndon to the west and offered very basic shopping and a few restaurants. Ottawa is the closest town of any size, offering traditional shopping and dining options. Kansas City is about an hour north.
Overall we really enjoyed our time here at Pomona State Park and will definitely be returning. - Geom

This is a roomy state park with lots of grass and shade trees. There are sites of all sizes for both large rigs and smaller equipment. This a good park for an overnight stay or longer term. Swimming, marina, basketball, disc golf course, volleyball, tetherball. Equipment for check out at park office. It is clean and staff is friendly. This is on our "top ten" list. Price listed includes full hookups. - ksgypsy

This campground is on Pomona Lake 24 miles south of Topeka. The campground is absolutely gorgeous with lots of trees and very spacious campsites. Every site is shaded. There are several different camping areas and some are primitive, but there are many full hookup sites and even more water/electric sites available. The sites in Burning Heart area are full hookup and there are several very long pull through sites that are quite nice. Most of the sites have only a view of the water, but there are a few water front sites near the marina. And several sites have no view of the water at all, but the wooded surroundings are very beautiful. We didn't use the shower facilities but the building looks very new and modern. We will definitely camp here again. The only reason I didn't give a 10 is that the cellphone service was marginal. Our wireless Internet card did work there however. - benidew

This is a very nice COE park. There are several COE campgrounds in this section of Pomona Lake and all looked very good. Rate reflects a Golden Age discount for .50 amp, water, and sewer. There are only twelve of these sites and quite a number of electric and water sites. Contractors seemed nice and informative. We would definitely stay here again. - PALPJL

A few gravel sites with 30 amp service. Not bad for a day or two. No other amenities but connected with RV/trailer sales and service. Some highway noise but not too bad. - Orlan
Nov 2011 - $8.00
This park is good for an overnight stay. It is at I-35 so there is a lot of highway noise, plus there is a train track close by which adds to the noise. There is water at the entrance. There is also a sign which state the rate is $6. But since the box was full I went to the office the next day and was told it was $8. The owner just didn't want to change the sign. - From the Kites

Located at Exit 135 on I-35 east of Emporia beside a trailer/RV dealer's lot. For a night, not bad, not a destination, but as way point, it's acceptable. 30AMP power only, back to back pull-throughs. Rough gravel access road, but easy to level on sites. Close to Interstate, but no worse than many other campgrounds noise-wise, for 3 to 4 times the price - Teacher's Pet

Great RV park for an overnight stay. Not close to the highway, but close to an airport, but it was really not that noisy at all. The lady that is the host of the park is exceptionally nice and helpful. Although the spots are very close together, the park is clean and nice. - TBOB

Good no-frills park, a bit on the expensive side. Campground host lady was fantastic! She was always available via phone. We decided to stay an extra night and she accommodated us no sweat. There were many residents: their sites were very well kept. Site was easy in-easy out, level, good power & water. All, including sewer, were conveniently located. Length of site was a bit tight, but RV and car did barely fit. Right next to the airport but not a lot of noise. - Julie and Ray

Level gravel pull through spots. couldn't get on the wifi... Airstream wiht our computers but ipads did fine. We visited some friends who were staying in the park which contributed to the excellent rating. $36 with PA, $40 without. Park was full, we had the last space. Behind Super 8 motel, it was a clean park and the full timers were clean and picked up. The spots are close together. It was close to Topeka and hte cost reflected that. - Jim Lee

Good Roads in and Big Rig Friendly. We arrived after booking online and were given a site that better fit our rig and toad. Very helpful and friendly. Easy on off for I-70 - rl1962

Just an overnight stay for us. It's a little more difficult to get in and out, not right off the highway but not too bad. We stayed in a pull through by the road but the noise did not bother me (I use a sound machine to block noises) The campground is clean and well kept, office staff was friendly, our site was level. Very close to the neighboring site right beside who parks in the opposite direction. With both parties' slides out, there was probably 18" between the slides. On the door side there was plenty of space. There is a pool, a dog park and a little lake with walking trails. Our site was good for satellite, good Verizon signal and park has some WiFi but office should give the WiFi name on check in. Three different Cap city WiFi names show up in the list - trial and error with the password until one worked. Would stay overnight again. - Rambleinthebramble
