Located on the Flint Hills Trail State Park in Allen Kansas, Basecamp Flint Hills offers camping in the scenic Flint Hills of Kansas. BFH is 20 miles north of the world capital of gravel cycling, Emporia KS, and 20 miles east of historical Council Grove. Ideally suited for tent camping, BFH has hammock trees and shaded acreage. Two back-in camper sites with power and water are also available for those who prefer a bit more luxury. This is a community style campground where picnic tables and campfires might be shared with your neighbors. We encourage you to expand your circle and enjoy the experience! Seasonal facilities include an open air, cold water shower and port-a-potty available April through October.

Great campground in KS
This is a great little campground out in the middle of nowhere Kansas. It is right next to the Flint Hills Nature Trail bike trail. I stayed in RV site 2 which has an electric hookup. There was also a pit toilet which is seasonal (through October I believe). Also outdoor showers for warmer weather.

This campground is a step below a full service campground, but it is not primitive for tent camping. Shower facilities are probably best used seasonally in warmer weather from what I could tell both bring exposed and having cold temperature only. It is a great hookup for the nearby bike trail and a quiet, clean and well kept campground, save wildlife at night. No lake waterside camping here within easy day trip distance to council grove environs and tall grass prairie preserve.

Flint Hills bike ride
We had a great stay at Base Camp. ! Amy was so helpful and the camp sites were mowed and clean. There was water and a lot of firewood. We spent the night and had a great stay. We would definitely stay here again
