We absolutely loved it, so much that we ended up staying an extra night!! Robin was great and super hospitable our whole stay assuring we were set up and enjoying okay. It was a little more remote and primitive camping than anticipated but great campsite locations set up and fire pits with wood ready. Great quiet laid back atmosphere and get away!!
Loved my stay at The Light Center! Sunny was there when I arrived to give me directions to the campsite which I found easily. She also showed me the two baby goats - Castor and Pollux! The site was in a nice location - only took a few minutes to walk to from the car but was still secluded for privacy.
There was a wagon to use which was nice to haul my stuff to the site. The barn was closed due to COVID-19 but there was a compost toilet available. I did bring some firewood because I was worried the wood there would be too wet from the recent rain, but there was plenty of wood scattered to make a fire. Overall, I had a great night and I will definitely be back!
Nice spot in kansas
The Light Center is a beautiful property tucked amongst farmland between Kansas City and Wichita. I camped there for one night during a very humid spell and was relieved at how comfortable it got at night. The nighttime sounds were fantastic + fireflies mixed with the stars as I sacked out. There is only one camp spot close to parking + water, and the others you have to hike into. Because of our current Covid-19 era, I was asked to utilize a Home Depot bucket-based composting toilet, if needed. I would recommend this spot for a nice overnight stay.
