  • The campground is simply too crowded. The sites are literally check by jowl, even closer together than many commercial RV parks. You can on hot gravel without shade of any kind. Most sites are sloped....  more »
  • Japaneses area, the many seasonal flowers and oh the Waterfall is so beautiful when its running. Park is so clean, hooe that doesn't change.  more »
  • Beautiful landscape, well maintained, most visitors are really good about picking up after themselves. Great place for a family outing. Just check the local updates about alge & other outdoor concerns.
  • I have lived in Topeka for 10 years. Lake Shawnee is always a pleasant place to go and get away from the feel of City Life. The flower garden is gorgeous everyone should experience it at least once, I go there frequently. There is a 7 Mile plus walking, jogging, exercise trail all the way around the lake. It's a beautiful way to enjoy being fit. Sometimes it's nice just to take a short stroll back and forth cross the dam around sunrise or sunset. Campgrounds are always well organized. I believe they have bathrooms and showers at theirs. I'm not a fisherman personally but I always see people down at the fishing areas when I cruise my trike around.
