8 RV Parks near Wilson, Kansas

We stayed in Big Bluestem #12. Site was right on the water with electric and water. Site was adequately level. Park has a good hiking trail up into the hills and we were able to take a nice bike ride across the dam to the other Campground. It was mid week, and everything was pretty quiet. Online Reservations worked fine and we were able to pick out our site ahead of time with no problems. The park works well for a 1-2 day stay - we will stay here again when we are passing through. - Davishouse2

We spent four nights at this park which is located in central Kansas, not far from I-70. This portion of the state park has a cluster of campgrounds scattered in the hills along the pretty lake. The steep hills don't match the traditional view of flat land Kansas! In our case, though, the wind very much did fit the Kansas stereotype. We had lots of hot, dry wind with gusts rocking the camper. Obviously, this isn't an everyday occurrence, but we dealt with the wind (at times over 40 mph!) our entire stay.
We were in one of the four full hookup sites (the Foxtail loop). There were very few campers present during the week, but things got busier over the weekend when every spot, including camping cabins were booked.
One thing you might want to know is that above the camping fee there's a $5 a day entry fee (I included it in our paid per night). There's a nearby Corps of Engineers campgrounds with, I think, electric only that might be a better short stay.
I had no problem getting a satellite signal. Keeping it was a different thing, as the strong winds tended to move the dish just enough to disrupt the signal. During one especially strong blast associated with a passing thunderstorm, one of the guy wires I had put on it snapped. My Verizon had a weak but usable signal.
We enjoyed the star-lit nights and beautiful sunsets over the lake. The near record temperatures and constant winds rocking the camper, though, kept us inside through much of the day. Had the weather been more enjoyable, I think we would have been quite satisfied with this stop. The weather, though, caused us to look forward to calmer, cooler days elsewhere. - nazpaz

Great park for an extended stay or overnight stop as it's only 8 miles from I-70. This is a very beautiful park with great spaces. Rate does not include the $5 entrance fee. We stayed in the Big Bluestream area. All sites are very spacious. The back-in sites in this area have concrete pads and appear to be fairly level. Sites 26 thru 35 are considered pull-thru sites, but are really pull-over sites. Essentially, you just pull over to the side of the very wide road. Because these are not on actual pads, the side-to-side and front-to-back levelness is not great depending on the site you are in. Because of the pull-over nature of these sites, the electrical and water connections are also on the curb side of the space. Water pressure is very good and requires a pressure reducer. There was a brand new bath house installed at the entrance to this area and has extremely hot showers. There are 3 individual shower rooms on one side of the building, plus the separate restrooms on the other side of the building. The sidewalks and landscaping for the bath house were not installed when we visited, but appeared to be only a few weeks away from being completed. - GA Bob

We stayed at this COE park for two nights. They had just turned off the water for the season, but we knew that would be the case coming in so we were prepared. We had 50-amp electric, and pretty much any site we wanted. The pit toilets were closed in our loop, but open in the other loop(s) down the road. It's about seven miles from I-70, so there's no noise at all. Peaceful and quiet. We hope to return to enjoy another stay when the weather is more cooperative. - Denise and Glenn

The shower area had hair in the drain. There were hair ties, shampoo bottles, Qtips in the changing area. The fire rings had not been cleaned. Ours was filled with cigarettes and Qtips. - GwenfromMA

This is a nice COE park. We were here over a weekend and it was really crowded. The sites in Loop A and B were very large, C-E loops were a lot closer together. They are water/electric sites and the utilities worked fine. No shade. Sites were pretty level. There really isn't any sites that have good access to the water. Also, the rules are definitely not enforced. They say 2 vehicles per site and 1 RV and 1 tent or 2 tents, but everyone around us had many more than that. At one time there were 6 vehicles, 2 boats, an RV and tent at one site. Made for a very noisy bunch. Every site around us had many more than the rules allow. That would probably only happen in the A-B loop as the sites are really long. Don't know that we would stay here again not due to the campsites, but not having much lake access sites. - jacknpeg

We stayed after the main season closed, so it was self service and self select. Driving around, we found a site that had great afternoon shade and was level. Some will be very unlevel and full sun... can't tell if you have to make a reservation online, so we were fortunate. Very quiet, enjoyable stop with plenty of walking available for us and the dog. Our site had power but no water. We used the dump station on the way out. One small annoyance was the late night dog walk - opened the door to a swarm of moth-type bugs. Before re-entering, one of us will start a high speed scroll fan and aim it at the door so we can keep most of the critters out. Not sure about camping here in the summer but it was great for the fall - would stay again. - cherib

Typical COE park. A little off the beaten path: 11 miles from route 70. Had good dish and mi fi Verizon. Quiet. All types of sites from 50amp to 30amp. Some with, some without H2O. Mostly gravel. - Supdog11

Rate reflects America The Beautiful Senior pass, and off-season discount. This is one of three COE parks located on Wilson Lake. Lucas Park is located on the north side of the lake about 2 miles west of highway 232 and Sylvan Park COE campground. Lucas Park is quiet and secluded. The road from highway 232 into the Lucas Park campground is fully paved as well as the road through the park. The campground loops and site are good gravel based. Look carefully at each site when making a selection as each loop has some sites that include electric and water, as well as sites with electric only, and other sites with no services. There are many pull through sites as well as back-in sites in each of the three loops. Each of the loops have a small playground for the younger campers. Beach and boat access is also available within the park. - Johnson's

Pretty typical COE park. It's located below the dam that forms Wilson Lake. It's pretty quiet during the week, but does get crowded on the weekend. There is a fantastic nature trail just down the road. No wifi and T-Mobile wouldn't connect, but we did get a connection when we went up to the overlook area above the dam. The sites are well separated and utilities worked well. The dump station is located near the entrance on the exit road. No swimming at this park. - SteveCampsTx

I stayed in site 4 for two nights while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This COE park is located behind the dam creating Wilson Lake and is about 9 miles north of I-70. It is a beautiful area and beautiful lake but there is very little else around. It is a typical spread out COE park with very spacious, level, paved sites, all very well maintained, with lots of grass and big shade trees. There is a boat ramp down the road but there is no swimming beach at this park. To swim you would need to go to the state park down the road or COE's Lucas Park which has a beach but no shade. I was there on a weekend and most of the sites were taken. Most sites are very long pull-throughs located on two loops -- one is 30 amp and the other is 50. On the website all sites (14-25) on the 50 amp loop come up as handicap sites and you get a warning that you can be moved if necessary. A little strange. All these sites were taken and I'm sure they weren't all handicapped folk. There are a few back in sites. I really liked my site except that there is one light in the park near the fee station and it is VERY bright and it was very close. I'd pick a site further away from the fee station next time. Dump station well positioned. Roads were easy to navigate. There is a short hiking trail down the road. Verizon worked well. Water and electric were excellent. Price reflects Senior Pass discount. Very quiet and pleasant park well worth the extra nine miles off of I-70 for those passing through. - SoloRed

Our second time at this park. There are only a couple full hook-up sites of which we had reserved one. Sites are long and level; hookups all function properly. Park is very quiet during the week, less so on the weekend when families and boaters arrive. Nicely situated in a grove of cottonwood trees below the dam. Nice walking/nature trail nearby. - Katy29

Just posting that this is still an RV park and is open, since no reviews since 2009. $20 is for electric only as other utilities are questionable or non-existant depending on site. No facilities as far as I could see. Sewer connection in ground. Owner asks that you are careful not to drive over them. Just open hole in the grass. Mostly long-term I think. We are happy to be here since another park in Salina couldn't give us a site where our rooftop satellite would work. Here we are on a site right along the road and very open. Luckily we had water onboard. 50 amp outlets / need adapter for 30. OK for an overnight stay. Park is on frontage road just past John Deere. - pubtopoub

Very quiet place to stay, also very easy access to highway 70 and 156 towards Great Bend, Kansas. It sits right off the hwy 156 and its middle way to Salina, Kansas and Great Bend, Kansas. I would recommend this place to everyone. - cwiggles

Just a one-night stopover on our travels. We are full-timers in a motorhome so we've see a lot of RV parks. This is a run-down trailer park. Our site was pretty much dirt with broken glass and cigarette butts. My husband even found a bullet casing! We were afraid to let our dog out due to the glass everywhere. The permanent residents who are there do not keep up their mobile homes at all! There is trash everywhere around them. I would never stay here again. - Honey-Poppy

VERY unkept. This place is a dump. Worst place I've ever stayed in. Only positive is that the site was level. Owner very rude. Office hours said 4-10 pm. At 4:30 went in to find her watching TV, and she was upset that I didn't see the sign that said she wasn't there and would be back later. Try anyplace else in the area if you have to stop near there. - DYK 640

Arrived and read the sign that said we could choose our own spot, so we did. The office is the owner's home so I went to pay and check to be sure our spot was OK with her. It was so we set up. The only negative is that there are also full timers in the park in single wides which would normally be OK. However, sitting out enjoying the cool weather that evening, we heard one of the residents shouting obscenities at someone! Also, there were barking dogs, again at the single wides. The owner was no where to be seen, and there were no printed rules given to us when we checked in. All in all, though, there are few sites and few campers so we had lots of room between us and others. The sites are actually very close but you can tell that people regularly choose every other site so that no one is too close as the owner let's you choose the site that suits you. There are back in sites and pull through sites so you can choose what you want. There are LOTS of trees and bushes in the park which we enjoyed. Even though you are only about 1/4 mile from the interstate, there is very little noise due to sell the trees and bushes. We enjoyed our stay due to the quiet and the relative privacy of the park and spacing of campers. - overogal

Arrived at 4pm on a Sunday. Came in behind a 5th wheel who had called and was waiting for a manager. Shortly thereafter another 5th wheel arrived. We all had reservations. You would think that if the office closed, there would be instructions posted to tell where to go. Once she showed up and led me to my site, I understood - non of the sites were numbered. They crammed two RVs on each pedestal. There was junk all over - around the office, in the office, and around many of semi-permanent sites. My advice: stay away unless there is absolutely no other choice. - Andy H

Very friendly park manager/owner. She led us to our site and made sure we knew where all the connections were. Park was crowded but mostly filled with pipeline workers who where working in area. Rigs looked nice and well kept up. Nice little area outside our door. Grassy area for the dog. We stayed a week while visiting our kids. - Pepperpati

We called 2 weeks in advance, identified as PASSPORT AMERICA. Made reservations for 3 nites. Arrived & office was closed. Called and was instructed to park any lot. Set up, later checked in. The attendant says "I was full all summer, I don't need Passport America"..If we weren't all set up we would have left. We paid FULL price for three nites. Should have been $18/nite. We paid $37.50/nite. Sites described as long. They were but two rigs were parked back to back in each site. Site was not level, we needed a board to level. There were a few picnic tables, no fire rings. Run down mini-golf. Nice museum but was closed the whole time we were there. Feral cats everywhere and loose dogs. Will never return. - Lori Schenone

City-run small park adjacent to city park. Check in during normal hours at City Hall. Very friendly staff, no staff on RV site itself. Wonderful old trees, seldom used City Park (Lincoln, unfortunately, has dwindled in population like many small Kansas farming towns). Charming old stone band stand adjacent to RV stalls. Enough room between stalls. Several longer-term RVers so if you want to use this as a stopping off place, as we did, you need to contact the city well ahead of time to make sure they have spaces. One of a kind small town place to stay in the middle of wheat country. - Cannondaler
