2022 CAMPING SEASON Reservations for 2022 are open.  Reservations can be made at, the Campit-KS app, or by calling the office.  A two-night minimum stay on weekends is required with advanced reservations.  A four-night minimum stay is required on Memorial Day weekend.  Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends require a three-night minimum stay with advanced reservations.    
Due to the inordinate number of reservations last camping season with our regular campgrounds, (the non-equestrian sites), many campers were looking and booking sites in the Wild Horse Equestrian Campground that do not have a horse.  Even though the reservation site informs you must have a horse to camp at the Equestrian Campground. All horse campers who want an advanced reservation will need to call the office to make those reservations.  The office phone number is 785-246-3449.  Please remember that to do an advanced reservation, the reservation must be done before NOON the day before arrival.  We cannot do a one-night reservation for Friday and or Saturday.  You must book both nights and you must call before NOON on Thursday. If we do not answer the phone, please leave a message and so we can call you back.  Since the sites are now closed to online reservations the only way to know if something is open is to call.  Again, we cannot make an advance reservation (not on the site) the day of arrival or after 12 o’clock the day before.   Just a note on cancellations, the policy is for all RESERVATIONS:

DUE to KDHE Lagoon Inspections the Fish cleaning station is still closed.  We can no longer dump the fish bones etc. into the Lagoon.  Accumulation of the bones, skins and other parts over the years have made the lagoon inoperable. We are waiting for permission to move the station and have the bones etc. discharge out into the lake.  Unfortunately, due to the flooding of 2019 has put a hold on this project at this point.  Plans are still in the works, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
