This is the site of a decommissioned Atlas F Missile Silo which was abandoned by the Air Force in the 60's.

You will receive a historical tour of the Missile Base property and the underground Launch Control Center with a tunnel that leads to the 186 ft deep Missile Silo. (This is a construction zone, as the bunker is being renovated into an underground home. Be prepared to sign liability waivers.)

Located in the Smokey Hills of Kansas, you will be camping in beautiful fields with great views of a 250 MW windfarm.

Hike over a mile of trails on the property and pick out your own camp spot.

Join other guests at the top of the Missile Silo for a campfire at night and enjoy stargazing.

Just mins away from the local tavern and restaurants in Wilson.

Nearby is Lake Wilson, one of the largest and cleanest lakes in the State, there are water sports and Epic rated mountain biking trails.

I was expecting the missile silo in the middle of my camping adventure to be a nice stopover and instead it turned out to be a highlight of my trip. The beautiful landscape complete with a gorgeous sunset and the wind turbines not only gave the ultimate Kansas camping experience, but there was so much more! The missile silo tour took about an hour and not only was a great insight into American history but also a look forward into the possibilities for survival and sustainability. Matthew the host lit a fire for everyone and we had a great visit as the sun set. There is also a lake nearby with great swimming and views. I highly recommend this campsite! Would love to come back and stay longer.

Matthew was awesome and his dog Buddy! He enthusiastically walked us around the property describing the history, then we entered the underground silo and command center which he explained in detail the Differences in an S and E Silo and Next version was the Titan. Very interesting!! Views on the property were great. He even had a fire for us and two other couples, we enjoyed good conversation and a restful night. Google and Maps directions are misleading. Contact Matthew for best directions, but very easy access and short distance off I-70 on paved roads.

Matt’s property was so incredibly cool. In addition to the awesome silo tour, the grounds were set up for a real fun time with a communal camp fire and cornhole-type activities. Will be staying here again in the future!
