Nice little camp site right off the highway. Excellent fishing, good swimming. A short hike downstream takes you to an active sinkhole where the creek disappears into the ground.

Although you are close to the highway, there is virtually no traffic after dark, less than two cars per hour.

    Very beautiful grassland prairie with a spring feed pond. Easy to find just off a hard road with very little traffic.

    We did not stay there because we were able to get a site at the lake. Brian was very nice and accommodating.

    Great little spot in the Gypsum Hills of Kansas! We have a rooftop tent, so it was a little tricky to find level ground, but found a spot overlooking the pond. There was a rain storm that blew in overnight, but the camp spot does provide some protection from the wind. Great view to wake up to in the morning!

    Camp on gypsum hills scenic byway

    This site is on a beautiful ranch in a part of Kansas I had never seen before, the gypsum hills. The highway that it’s on is designated a scenic byway, with good reason. The spot where I camped was under some trees near a natural pond, peaceful and quiet and very pretty. As it happened, the monarch butterflies were migrating through and spent the night on the trees that I was camping under! Brian met with me after I arrived, and gave some suggestions to where I could park my teardrop camper, which was super helpful.
    I highly recommend Brian’s land as a place to stop over when traveling through Kansas. Who knew it was so beautiful?

    It was awesome! I had no idea the "gypsum hills" existed. Great space and we had a blast. The amount of fireflies was out of this world. We had a 4 wheel drive Subaru and a 17 foot camper... I wouldn't recommend staying here in anything longer than 21ft due to the limited amount of area to turn the camper around at the bottom. Brian checked on us several times and was a very gracious host. No one for miles to even hear our generator.
