BFH - Boondock Sites
Great little campground!
We've camped at BFH - Boondocks twice in the past couple week. First weekend in the tent area, this past weekend in camper spot #1. When we arrived, we noticed right away how well maintained the property was. The camping areas were mowed as well as paths to the $hit shack and the Shower Shack. The porta-potty was clean and smelled fresh (you could view the maintenance record on the door). Amy quickly answered any questions we had via messaging. It was relaxing sitting out by the fire looking up at the stars. We live in Olathe but its definitely worth the drive down. Emporia is just 15 minutes from the grounds in the event you need to get something (which we did both times down). We are hoping to get one more overnight in before the season ends.

Quiet, calm, and pretty flat so setting up a tent is no problem. Porta potty was clean. Nice place to just enjoy some peace.

The camping was great! Clean grounds and facilities. Great views of sun rise and sunset. Amy was a great host keeping me update on new updates. I will definitely be camping there again.

Great stop for Flint Hills Trail!
We had a great experience, having the campsite all to ourselves. We did rustic camping on the tent side. There was one picnic table, and one fire ring with one grill in that area. Since we were alone, it was perfect! We would definitely visit again under the same circumstances, but I might avoid at a busier time. We cooked all of our meals over a fire on the grill, which had enough space for one pan and one percolator. If we were sharing the fire with others, odds are good we'd be waiting or making other wait for access to the fire pit at meal times. If you're car camping, bring your own folding table and propane stove, and that wouldn't be an issue at all. The camper pad sites 1 & 2 had their own fire pit, and they had the closest proximity to the port-a-potty and the shower. The area with those sites was prime! We loved the proximity to the trail, the site was pretty quiet (far away highway sounds occasionally, but mostly calm) and the fall colors were absolutely lovely in Mid-October.

Starry Night
Beautiful, well-maintained, off the beaten path. The night I was there there was a new moon and the stars were amazing. You could even clearly make out the Milky Way. Just park/pitch your tent under a shade tree and enjoy.

Fantastic site. Two electrical and tons for space for boondocking. Great outside shower and porta pottie. Right on the Flint Hills Nature Trail. If you love to bike, especially gravel riding...this is the campsite for you!!

An Awesome Getaway!
Great options for tenting or camping with a small trailer -either on your own or with a group. Very quiet and dark skies for star gazers. Plus everything to need to boondock in style - water, porta-potty and showers. There's even a covered picnic area on the well maintained campground. And the site is located right on the Flint Hills Nature Trail. Plenty of cycling or hiking to be had. A great place to get away from it all!

Special for a stopr or destination
Darius and Amy are good people to meet. They're accommodating and in love with the area. I think they're naturalists at heart. I think you'll find them to be warm and organized if you have the pleasure of a meet. The space is very relaxing and with immediate access to a well-loved gravel trail for cycling and hiking.

Great property! Great price!
Very nice property. It matches its description very well. I would definitely stay again if I were in the Emporia area and would even consider coming back to Emporia from Idaho just stay there again.

Camping with my Dog
My dog and I loved camping at Base Camp Flint Hills. It was a quiet, beautiful setting, right off of the Flint Hills Nature Trail, on which we did some hiking. Campgrounds were nice, with cold shower and clean port-a-potty available. I’m definitely going back to camp there again!

Had a decent time staying here. There will be trucks/golf carts going by looking at you. A lot of barking dogs in the area. Howling coyotes were pretty neat. Once it gets dark, it's peaceful.

The campsite was clean and ready for us. We arrived on a Monday and had the place to ourselves. The fire pit doesn’t have a grate for cooking (so bring your camp stove). It was quiet, and sunrises and sunsets were lovely. There’s a shelter with a picnic table which helped us spend outside time in spite of the rain. Hiked the Flint Hills trails and loved them. We’d be happy to stay here again and will bring our mountain bikes for trail riding next time.

It was a perfect place to camp! Not too many bugs flying around and the sounds of the bugs weren't so bad compared to my other camping experiences. I'd definitely would like to go again and have already made some plans for a second trip. There's water to wash up, portable bathroom, logs, tables, other stuff. The place we camped at was near the highway. I believe you can go further into the land but we like the idea of not having to go too far so it was perfect for us. Highly recommend for everybody!

We enjoyed our night here, it’s spacious and quiet. The facilities are clean. The cold shower was just great after a 90° bike ride, it’s just a few feet from the Flint Hills Trail which is very impressive

Bikepacking Oasis
Awesome little spot! Basically a mowed down field for all your camping needs, in the beautiful green flint hills region of Kansas. Has clean water via pump, a shower shack, and portajohn. Clean facilities. Some shade but not much. I even had cell reception.

Shower, water, rest room facilities and quiet. Conveniently located right on the Flint Hills Nature Trail. Plenty of trail and gravel biking to be had. Plus dark skies a night. A great place to stay and bring your bike and your telescope!

Nice spot, I was the only camper there and found it quiet and private. It was close to 100F during my stay and the shower was so great I used it three times. The only light on the property is shielded well so it does not flood the area with light, so the stars were visible. Study the Google maps image and it will be easy to find. I enjoyed it and hope to come back someday.

Well maintained and clean.
This place was nice and cleaned and well maintained! We got in at night and set up our truck camper. The grass was cut in areas to Walt and the gravel parking areas were nice and level. The port-o-potty was very clean. We looked at the clear sky and went to sleep. A+

I absolutely loved car camping at Basecamp Flint Hills! I was the only one there, so could park in some shade under a tree (it’s hot in July!). Had a gorgeous view of the prairie (new to this CA woman!). Loved watching the sunset, the fire flies/lightning bugs, the moonrise and the sunrise! Everything was extremely clean and organized - very well planned and thought out campground. Very quiet as well. Amy was very responsive as well.
