This is a sad little park surrounded by ag/industrial activities and is overpriced for what you get. The sites are fairly level and long enough but only a few are graveled and the rest are grass. Only 4 or 5 have 50A service with the rest being 30A. The fence surrounding 2 sides of the park is in desperate need of repair. Adding a fence along the north side of the park would help to separate it from the noise and sight of a farm implement repair and welding business. The exit road has a large mud puddle the could and should be filled with gravel. There is a new hospital being built in town and my understanding is that large number of the persons involved in the building of it are travelers and so I think that explains the relatively high price charged to stay here. The park seems to have a wifi connection but that connection has no internet access. I rated the service as bad due to that and that there was no owner/manager on sight to voice concerns to. The park is on an honor system, you choose your site and then go the kiosk to deposit cash or check as payment. Would I stay here again? Unfortunately, yes, as it is the only park near the family we come here to visit. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a community owned theater here that runs current movies for an amazing low entry fee of $5 per person. One block from the theater is a pizza place called Center Fire Pizza. Very good pizzas cooked in a wood fired pizza oven.

As previously described this is a basic park good for overnight stops. Easy access from US 36 on the West side of town. All sites are full hookups with some 50Amp. Excellent free WIFI. Good Verizon signal 4G+. Park is level and grass covered. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Not a bad place for a short stay. Other than hookups, there are NO amenities. The sites are fairly level. No idea often it is mowed, but it could have used it when we were there. There are no restroom or shower facilities. Campground uses a self check-in process and reservations are informal when you call, no card info taken. I cannot imagine this campground ever being full enough to worry. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here just for one night because we need to be at the Excel factory, just a few blocks away. Nothing fancy but OK for one or two nights. Wi-Fi was excellent. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Motorhome.

OK for overnight or short stay. Great internet. Full hook-up only. No TV reception, but town has a great little movie house. No restroom. No picnic table, well, there was a table, but no benches to sit on. Basically full hook-ups in a field. Couple small trees, but not really any shade. Owner really nice guy and we will go back if we are in the area again. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Only 2 sites have 50 amp service ($20), the rest of the park is 30 amp ($15). The sites on the end of the rows do not have sewer hookups. For check-in, you fill out a form and drop a check in a locked mailbox. I had reserved a 50 amp site, but the previous occupant decided to stay over an extra night, so I had to park in another spot, which was not a problem. The owner then told me I would need to move mid-week since somebody had reserved my alternate site. It didn't make much sense to me, but was no issue since I got into the Excel service center (great service!) earlier than expected. The park is well maintained, and was fairly quiet except for some barking dogs across the street. It's OK for an over nighter. Verizon service was good. The park's Wi-Fi was also good. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Motorhome.

A good overnight stop. Good power and water on level gravel sites. There are no restrooms or showers and most disturbing while I was here: tornado warnings were sounding all evenings and there is no provision for any type of shelter. I would stay here again, but only in fair weather. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a basic little park that provides a peaceful place to stay. The park consists of a grassy field with trees and fencing around the perimeter. Interior roads and sites are moderately gravel but were adequately solid in spite of spring rains. Only two sites have 50 amp service, and the water pressure was a little low but the wireless access was good. We would be happy to return. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice little campground where campgrounds are scarce. It is listed in the Kansas Directory as having TV service but that has been deleted. They have great Wi-Fi. For the price, you won't find a better bargain. No restrooms or showers, so your unit must be self contained. Grassy spots that had just been mowed. It's a serve-yourself honor system. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Motorhome.

An acceptable park with all basic hookups. Self check in--but all worked fine for an evening off the road. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Self-contained only, all pull-throughs, 30amp EWS. Easy access; on White Rock Rd. one block south of US 36, west side of Smith Center. Long gravel pull-through, table, cable TV, no Wi-Fi. Units must be self-contained. Road noise is minimal but there are many barking dogs in the surrounding homes and businesses. We stopped here to take the tour of Peterson Industries (Excel fifth wheels), see the monument to the “geographic center of the 48 states” in Lebanon, and drive to the “largest ball of twine” in Kyle. Nice, quiet spot to spend a few days. We camped at Sunset Park Campground in a Motorhome.
