City park. Heavy trees and grass (freshly mowed), level concrete pads. Pads close together, but not likely to be a concern as only three sites out of an estimated 20 were in use. Donation box (c'mon, be generous). Large dog park, children's play area. Close by highway and train track, but little traffic. No OTA TV! ATT signal 1-2 bars. Excellent for overnight stop. - Sadiesmom

This city park is excellent for a short stay or for a long stay. The park has a fenced in dog area so that your furry family members can run and play. There is no charge for camping, but you can leave a donation if you want. Lots of trees in the park provide cool shade on a hot day. Dump station is a little tricky to find. It is on Paw Print Drive next to the baseball diamond and across from the elementary school. Our Verizon internet, ATT cell phones and Dish Satellite all worked well in this park. There is a set of train tracks across the road from the park, but the trains don't run that often, so we hardly noticed them. - Bobbi1948

The fee is based on "donation" and an iron ranger. (We always leave a good amount when they are allowing you the honor system). The campground had a few minor problems, just to be aware of. 30 amp only. Almost impossible to turn around if you go past the camping area; we had to unhook the toad. The sites (back-in) are pretty well laid out. The local police patrolled a few times, and overall a nice little park in a nice little town. Had a huge Nebraska storm blow through that night and the weather warnings on our phone were tested. No damage, though. This park has some very huge, very old trees standing there. Would definitely stay there if in the area again. - 7 on the road

We read the reviews and decided to try this out ... then saw the sign for free RV parking on our way in. When we got here there was only one other RV. The location is great, right next to shaded picnic tables with a playground across the street. The parking is a little confusing, if you parallel park you take up more than one spot. Backing in would require unhooking tow vehicle in order not to stick too far out, but no biggy. I’d say there are maybe 10 sites, some with water. All have electric. I’ve read that there is a dump onsite but haven’t looked for it yet. All in all, very pleased and hoping for a nice restful sleep. - Spiderelly

This park is available at a donation rate. We gave $15/night for the 3 nights we were there. We stay here to be close to family. However, this park is also on the Oregon Trail. There is a tremendous amount of history in the area regarding the Oregon Trail. There is water and 30 amp electric. For an additional fee, you can utilize the city pool which is across the street. There is also a large playground for children. - GenFam

Rate paid was for W/E site and KS daily use pass. This campground in located north about 10 miles off US 36, then 4 miles east. Lovely location on Lovewell Lake. Multiple campground loops. We stayed in South Willow, which had a great view of the lake. The water level of the lake itself was very high due to flooding, and parts of some of the loops were closed/under water. Had site #3 which was fairly level. Lots of big trees for shade in all 3 of the Willow loops (Willow, North Willow, and South Willow). We had no problem getting a spot without reservations, as we were coming in on a Sunday afternoon. I was actually surprised at the number of folks still in these 3 loops, more than I anticipated. The campsites are all pull through. The showers/restroom was just a short walk from the site. They were adequate, provided good hot water. 3 separate shower rooms on one side of the building, restrooms around on the other side. Staff at the office/check in were very friendly and helpful. This is a very good place to consider, for an overnight stop or longer, if you like lake activities. The South Willow loop has great views of the lake, as well as the Willow loop. The North Willow loop was more in the trees and the views of the lake were not as good. The Willow loop had sites under water, and looked like they had been that way for a while. There are other loops (Cottonwood is near by), but didn't check them out, other than roadway view. They all looked to be nice, and all sites are pull thru. - ThomInColorado

First Impression: Huge reservoir. Multiple CGs in the park. Very quiet, almost empty (early May). Prices vary based on site type chosen; no discounts. Pretty. Safety: no concerns - peaceful. Access: We came in on Kansas route 14 (good condition), south from Nebraska route 8 (marginal condition) as access to US-36 was closed in Belleville due to construction. Then, east on North Shore Road to 250 Road then south into the park. North Shore Road needs resurfacing. Okay signage, GPS got us in. Office: Open sporadically. Stop at the "self pay" kiosk, first on the left as you turn onto 250 Road to see a map of the CGs. Facilities: No CG amenities. No laundry room. Very aged, dirty restrooms/showers (score "D"). No propane sales. Nice, large playground. No designated dog run. Nine hole, disc golf course. Campground: Not in a flood plain. Park roads are rough, bumpy asphalt with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Individual CG roads (i.e. Walleye Loop) are dirt but watch for low hanging branches and tight turns around trees. Big rigs use caution in the Walleye Point loop. Sites are all spacious, pull-through. Numerous tent areas but no yurts. Some cabins and park models. Most sites are dirt/gravel (a few are concrete), no landscaping, level. Electric and water are at mid-rig with either 30A or 30A/50A; no meters. No sewer; use dump stations. Good water pressure and taste. A few sites have nice concrete patios with very aged picnic tables. Ground fires not permitted but most sites have a BBQ/fire ring. Marginal satellite views (mature trees). No cable or OTA TV. Free Wi-Fi advertised at office but none found. Verizon phone had no coverage; No 4G but "1X" basic access was available but sketchy. No railroad, aircraft, or traffic noise. No recycle bins. Bug Report: No insect issues. Runners: Roads ok for running. Yoga: good space and ground surface for your mat. Conclusion: not a bad place for a getaway - recommended. - StephenK

What a find! Though the lake was 10 feet below level, it was beautiful. Great Blue Herons and Pelicans were all over the lake. The sites to get are in Willow South Utility Campground. These are pull through with full hookups and 50A electric. We camped in site #3, but sites 4, 5, and 6 have superb lake views. Verizon phone and data were marginal, but we could get 4G LTE in the morning and night. - zulu
