The original "campground" on our property, this site is a lovely clearing among cedar trees with all the undergrowth and low branches removed.  Plenty of space, a picnic table, and a private fire ring make this a quiet, peaceful, and private camsite.

It's a nice, private place to relax and camp. The breeze off the water and trees kept temperatures down. The bathroom/showers are a great perk. It was quiet at night and mostly during the day except when atvs and bikes were at the offroad vehicle area nearby. It was just us during the week, for the most part. We explored the area and found all kinds of wildflowers and lizards and things and enjoyed the view of the water. Drawback was unusual number of broken/ melted glass bits on the ground at the campsite around firepit and trees, from previous irresponsible campers.

Pretty site but glass & noise

Overall our stay went well, the site was pretty and felt very secluded. However, as other reviewers have noted, there is a LOT of glass shards on the floor of the site - very hazardous for pets or children. For a crew of adults only it wouldn’t be a problem but I was worried for my pup. The amenities were great, the shower is probably nicer than the one at my house, and while it is a couple minute walk to the bathroom it’s not bad at all. The campsite is on the land of a wedding venue and there was a wedding on that we could hear all the noise of. It wasn’t an issue for us but if you’re looking for a quiet spot this might not be it.

Cute little camp! The property is a wedding/event site but they have the camping area tucked in the corner. The glamping site is really cool as well. Very private and shaded. 5 stars for the bathroom/shower, better than most hotels. Highly recommend for any going near Manhattan, KS!

Great camp site! My third time here because this is one of the best in Kansas if you tent camp. Private spot with a secluded feel. But a short walk to a stocked shower/bathroom. Other people and activities on the grounds sometimes but never bothers you here.

Conveniently close to the Tuttle Creek ORV park. Actually shares boundary with park. Site is well protected from the wind by trees. Amazing 5 star restrooms and showers. I was there in early spring, but it looked like the grounds of the are would be beautiful with native wild flowers and grasses.

One of my favorites.

2nd time staying at this site. Great site location with a secluded feel, while still having amenities like a shower/bathroom a short walk away. Site works great for roof top tents, hammocks or ground tents. Great communication with the host. I will stay here again. Nearby off-road park gets a little loud on the weekends sometimes but doesn't bother me (also a perfect location if you are planning on using the OHV park).

Great stay. Perfect location, very private with a great view of the stars. Nice large campground, perfect for a group of 5-8. Definitely will be returning.

This was a great private camp site! We had shade trees, a fire pit with wood, and plenty of space for our tents and two vehicles.
We had access (up a trail with a great view) to clean and well stocked bathrooms and showers.
This site felt safe, was private but accessible, and had a neat area for the kids to explore and play. We did not have access to the lake, but we visited a swimming beach on our way out of town.
The host was always available with help and instructions. Both families had a great time camping under the trees. We hope to visit again!

A really beautiful part of Kansas and the site is spacious and shady. Clean, well-stocked private bathrooms with hot showers were also a nice perk!
