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. We camped at Pomona State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Pomona State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Pomona State Park in a Travel Trailer.
