I had a poor and frustrating experience. There were weeds 3 and 4 feet tall, with stickers that attached to me and my dog. Diving in, the weeds rubbed on the underside of my truck and my high clearance boondock teardrop camper. The weeds also scratched the sides. Cell service was poor, but I finally got thru to the host. He did come and mow the weeds. However, they had gotten so big that the stubble remained long, course and scratchy. Putting down my astroturf rugs did not solve the problem. In the morning I discovered that the water hydrant would not work. The host came out to TRY to fix it and left a little bottled water. Not sufficient for a shower or washing dishes. As the mowed weeds dried, so did the stickers they had, which made them even more clingy to clothes, flesh and my poor dog. She could not even find a place to lay down where she would not get stickers or poke by the weed stubble. Many stuck in her paws and were so painful for her that I could not touch her to remove them. We were both miserable and left ain the morning - day early.
I requested that the host give me a refund only for the day I left early. I have had no response. BTW: this is the most expensive place I have stayed in nearly 7 weeks of travel and was by far the least enjoyable.
so cool! one of our favorite hipcamp experiences yet. very remote, rustic site, cool hills to explore. this one will stick with me...highly recommend if you're also a fan of wide open, lonely, beautiful places
Getting away from it all
This site is definitely allows you to get away from it all. It is in rural area on the Kansas / Nebraska border, with nothing but cornfield and pasture for miles around. The stars are amazing at night. Bullseye is very communicative and the directions to the RV site are very good. The RV site is level and the power source easily accessible. If you are looking for a change of pace from standard RV campgrounds, this place will provide that.
We had a wonderful night at this beautiful, extremely secluded, and rural campsite. Despite some issues getting there, we really enjoyed our stay, and the land felt truly special.
The campsite is a decently-sized patch of grass and field located next to some grain silos at the edge of a large cornfield. It is completely silent at night. It is a great place to see stars, and we were able to witness the entire Milky Way in great clarity. Our host was exceptionally kind and informative, and personally drove out to escort us to the site after the GPS coordinates took us the wrong way.
The campsite is on Road W-6, and is precisely 10.4 miles due north of the intersection of 383 and Rt. 36, which in turn is about 6.7 miles west of the town of Norton, KS. (The town of Lenora is further away.) After driving north on W-6, past Road F (stop sign) and Road D, the campsite is at the end of a grassy, somewhat obscured driveway that has some ruts in it - our little sedan made it ok, but it was an adventure. Bring bug spray as there were some gnats and mosquitos around dusk, but the rest of the time it was super minimal.
All said - this was totally worth it, and I'd highly recommend this special and very private piece of land to camp on. We would return in a heartbeat. The seclusion and stars are worth the trek!
We loved our stay at creek bins fortress camp! Our host Tim was amazing and showed us around really cool parts of his ranch! It was a beautiful area with lots and lots of open space! Our host Tim showed us the way to get there and as we were driving called us and told us about Kansas and the crops in the area! definitely, go check this place out!
