Boondocking is what we do best! This is our preferred way to camp and we have found some amazing, epic places we want to share with you! But we are also members of Boondockers Welcome, Escapees and Thousand Trails. So we’re here to share our tips on all the locations we stayed while traveling in Kansas. We live and travel full time in our RV, so we will be updating this blog often! Come back soon!
Boondocking / Free Camping
- Goodman State Fishing Lake – If you’re heading to Ellis to the Cedar Bluff State Park, this little hidden gem is perfect. It’s still a bit away, but a free, clean, little public park and fishing area. You’ll Mose likely be completely alone in this little park. Big enough for any size rig, but it is a small park, so if there are already a couple of people there, make sure you have a plan B. GPS: 38.387305, -99.853801
- Sheridan State Fishing Lake – Another beautiful lake view camping area. Provides fire rings, and clean bathrooms. GPS: 39.360462, -100.231534
- Davis Park – Greensburg, KS – GPS: 37.60716, -99.28304 This is a city park with free electricity, drinking water, and even a dump station on site. Great for just a night or two, but don’t stay longer. It’s not glamourous, but it’s free and easy to get in and out. Both Verizon and ATT were good!
- Kingman State Fishing Lake – GPS: 37.653446, -98.257457 – Kingman, KS. This is a county park, near a beautiful fishing lake. There is plenty of room for a bigger rig and beautiful views! For you remote working people, both Verizon and AT&T were good. Look this location up on Google maps and you’ll see several pull-off locations to choose from.
- Downs City Park – Downs, KS. Another park with free electric hookups. Kansas has so many of these places! GPS: 39.509127, -98.541135. Easy access off Hwy 24, and again, nothing glamourous but a great place to park for a day or two to rest.
- Rocky Pond Park – Belleville, KS. GPS: 39.829269, -97.621384. City park with RV hookups for a price. Or you can boondock for free around the lake. There are many places to camp here. If you wanted hookups it’s 50amp for $20 a night. Not a bad price! Dump station, electric, water, and hot showers. Clean and very well maintained area.
Once we head back to Kansas, we’ll update this with some more boondocking and paid campground information. I do not currently see any Thousand Trails locations in Kansas, though there are lots of Passport America locations.
