The best camping near Nicodemus National Historic Site guide

Overview

About

Once upon a time following the Civil War, freed African Americans settled within the rolling plains of Bogue, Kansas. They founded the settlement of Nicodemus. Although it's not the only Black town founded during this time, it's one of the only ones that remain.

Five buildings make up the historic site including the Township Hall, St. Francis Hotel, Old First Baptist Church, African Methodist Episcopal Church, and School District Number 1 house. After immersing yourself in the history, enjoy an impromptu picnic at the Roadside Park.

While you can't camp at the historic site, you can camp at Webster State Park, just 15 minutes down the road to the east. It includes 880 acres of prairie, over 8,000 acres in the wildlife area, and 3,700 acres of reservoir. After your visit to Nicodemus, relax with some swimming and fishing at the lake. Visit in the spring when you can enjoy newly blooming wildflowers and avoid the heat of a midwest summer.

Located in northwestern Kansas, the best way to get to Nicodemus is east on I-70 to Highway 24 at Colby or west on I-70 to Highway 24 at Topeka. The highway goes right through the settlement.
