This is an older park that is in need of some serious infrastructure TLC. The roads are gravel, but the edges and turns in the road are rutted and when it rains, it's like driving in a mud bath. I spent an hour scraping the stone-encrusted mud off of my tires. There are 3 types of sites: seasonal residents located in a shaded area at the front of the park; long gravel transient sites in front of the Self Storage building that have grass in between the sites and are fairly level; at the south end of the park, sites on a large mound of gravel, raised up several feet, where your wheels and front legs sit on opposite sides of the hill and leveling can be a challenge. There is no grass between the sites, and sites are opposing so you are facing the doorway of your next door neighbor. Almost all of these sites are occupied by working families, so work trucks abound, sometimes making navigation tricky. There are lots of children running about so you need to drive carefully and slowly during the day. Weekends are like ‘party central’. On the plus side, the water pressure, cable TV, and Verizon signals were great. The park is very close to several of the main attractions in Abilene; the Eisenhower Museum, Greyhound Hall of Fame, Old Abilene Town. There is a small swimming pool, the water is bright and clear, but there were some leaves sitting on the bottom. On the negative side, the ‘big rig’ access should be taken with a grain of salt, as the roads are narrow and winding. The exit route is like following a snake trail (or you can cheat and exit via site #15 and the main entrance). A double tracked main rail line runs through town. At the road crossings the train horns are loud, long, and at all hours of the day and night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It was our misfortune to arrive at the campground during an unusual monsoon type rain. After paying our fee ( no discounts offered and only check or cash accepted ) we headed toward our site. We attempted to pull into the site per the directions at the office and we could see that the hook-ups for our rig would ALL be on the wrong side. We then looped around to come in from the other direction and while attempting to avoid one of the park homesteaders trucks ( 50% or better are homesteaders ) that stuck out into the driveway, we became stuck in the grass. Fortunately the park owner has a towing company and at no charge, we were pulled out. I think that the check in guy/ tow truck driver learned something about the park layout ( ie. that rigs need to park in alternating directions ). The sites are almost level, gravel but VERY soft when wet. There are lots of trains/train whistles to be heard throughout the nite and day. Based on the many kids bikes laying around the various sites, I’d guess that the park caters to a high number of local workers. They weren’t obvious during our stay because it rained both days and nights but the sites are so close together we could hear doors slamming and conversations. I think that I calculated that the park is 4/10ths of a mile from the Eisenhower home and museum and the Greyhound Museum. The museum offers adequate parking and charges $10.00 per person to see everything. My Garmin had the park on the left side of South Buckeye after leaving the interstate but fortunately my wife’s Google phone map listed it on the right ( correct ) side. They offer Tengo net but it’s so weak/limited that it’s not worth fooling with. The sites are too close to each other at our site. Our Verizon cell and mi-fi connected with 4 bars. The water pressure is listed at 75 lbs. and a pressure reducer is highly recommended. The park is just fine for us for a two nite visit to the museum and to visit the Russell Stover Factory down the road but this one visit/experience is more than enough. We did have a great meal at Joe Snuffy’s on first street and would recommend this eatery. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While definitely lacking in ambiance, it is within easy walking distance (just 4 blocks) from the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum It was our main reason for stopping in Abilene. Owner could not be more charming and helpful. Recommend people request pull-thru sites in rear of the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stone lot in town, shaded, close to road. Next lots are close. Wi-Fi is Tengo - so blah. Pool looked okay, good cable, close to museums. Would consider someplace else next time. Lot next door had one kid, two teenagers, two dogs, and four adults in a 1978 class C just purchased for $300 - so experience was rather marginal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good overnight in well kept park. Sites are level and easy to get in and out. Cable and Wi-Fi are excellent. Enjoyed being within walking distance of the Eisenhower Museum and Library. Do be aware there are trains and they do serve as alarm clocks! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park for the rate. Note: pull ALL the way through the park as the nicer pull-through sites are toward the rear of the park. Long term residents and rough toward the front of park. Some train noise but no road noise. Good overnight accommodations away from the highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I thought this was a nice little park. It was quiet; most of the people were just passing through for one night or staying over the weekend. We stayed two weeks and found that during the day we were the only ones there; of course it could be because we were there off season. There was a small park area which consisted of a swingset, horseshoe pit, and grass. Overall it seemed to be well kept and clean. I only have two small complaints. The first is that the water pressure was low at times, nothing too horrible but enough to be inconvenient. The second is that our particular site was overrun with weeds, every time I went out to walk the dogs I came in with itchy feet and legs because of the weeds. I saw someone mowing the grass on a couple of occasions and I'm not sure why they never came over to mow down the tall weeds near us. When it comes down to it neither of those things would deter us from staying here again. For $26 a night we got full hookups with 50 amp, strong Wi-Fi, and cable, I think it was a great deal. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Abilene. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is mix of shaded and open sites. We were offered a shaded site and took it, since the temps were in the 100's when we were here. The site was level and long. The Wi-Fi and cable TV worked well. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The only positive we can say about this campground is its proximity to the Eisenhower Library and Museum, which is only a block or two away. This is a bare-bones campground with most of the sites in an open field. We had a long, level, pull-through site fully exposed to the hot sun and Kansas winds. The campground is in poor condition overall, although all of our utilities worked fine. The owners are attempting to sell the campground and the storage facility which shares the property. If you need a place to stay for one night, it is bearable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Old and tired. Glad one of the pull throughs were empty or else would have been a royal pain to get to pull throughs in back. Stay as far left as you can before you enter as entry is narrow and has no room to swing. Pluses were that it was a level 50 amp site and owner explained what they do and where you go during bad weather. Would stay again but not my first choice if there were more options in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice little park and conveniently located next to the Eisenhower Library and Old Abilene. Restrooms are very clean and the grounds well kept. Very quiet at night. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Bathrooms have been updated and are nice. Sites are gravel and level. Choice of shaded or open space. Wi-Fi worked very well. Cable TV was very good. We were pleasantly surprised by this campground. Walkable distance (3 blks) to the Eisenhower Museum and Library. Large book exchange library at CG. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a no frills park that is very convenient if you are planning on visiting the Eisenhower Museum and Library. It isn't a fancy place, but the person who checked us in was efficient and pleasant. There is free wi-fi and cable. We were parked in the back portion of the park on an exceptionally long pull-through. All the roads and sites are gravel, but our site was quite flat. We had no problems getting satellite reception, but sites in the the front part are shaded by large trees and that could be an issue. When we were here there were only a couple of long term residents, and the entire park was was clean and neat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice small park close to the Eisenhower Library. Long pull through with 50 amp power, water, sewer. Good place for a day or two. Some of the other posts have the two places in Abilene confused. We camped here in a Motorhome.
$27 night is available for AAA only. No other discounts. We are not AAA members so do not know the discount rate. Previous comments said park was full of transient workers. This comment was made in 2010. There were about a total of ten RV's in park. No kids. No transients or permanents. We were pleasantly surprised. Good place to walk a dog and lots of nice grassy areas. Dust was not a problem. Roads were gravel. Only drawback was that I asked for a site with no trees so that we could obtain satellite service. Had a spot where we could not receive satellite signal due to tree in the way. Hooked up to cable so all was well. Would have given it a 10 but host should have known which sites could obtain cable and sites that could not. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Old, run down park, full of permanent residents. Lots of kids and barking dogs. Sites are very small and close together, roads are very dusty. Perhaps the worst park we have every stayed at. Planned to stay 2 nights, but left after one. We will never even consider this park again. "Resort"?? We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was almost full of transient workers. The people next to us tied up their dog outside and let it bark! The sites are rather narrow. Price seemed high for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Really not impressed with this campground. It needs a lot of TLC. In reading the rules they say to have your pet on a leash & pick up after them. The first time I walked around in the grass: you guessed it, I stepped in dog crap. The good thing about the park is they have excellent water pressure, 75 pounds so make sure you have a regulator. You must drive through town to reach this park and getting in is a little testy if someone else is coming out. Strictly a one-way very narrow road with lots of pot holes. Don't think we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just did an overnight stay at this park. It was a little off the beaten path. The facility was cleaned and well maintained, even had a swimming pool and cable. Didn't have any trouble maneuvering our rig around the park. When we come through this area we plan on staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here in a motor home while attending a greyhound event. It was very convenient to local attractions (Greyhound Hall of Fame is within walking distance) as well as downtown. The campground is a stop for the trolley that takes tours of the area. The campground was clean. It's not the prettiest place, but was perfect for our needs. The staff was very nice. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A little off the beaten path, but easy to find. Entrance a little tight for a large rig. Park has two sections, one in the shade and one in the open for satellite purposes. We chose the latter. Park appears well maintained. Staff very helpful. We were just there for a layover so our purposes were served. Would definitely return. They accept all discounts except Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Long, gravel pull-thru's at the back of the park. Entrance sign not clearly visible, OK for 1 night stay. Not much to choose from in Abilene. Only stayed because visiting family. Very foul water smell like sulfur, took 2-3 days to clear from RV faucets, tasted horrible. Grass had the same smell - had to bathe our dogs. Will probably not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is just down the street from the Eisenhower Library and a short drive to downtown. Portions of the park are treed, and a little tricky to get into. We had to disconnect our toad to get parked properly. We asked about any storm shelter on the grounds. They suggested going to the court house which was a few blocks down the road. Fortunately, we didn't have a storm that night. Dog walking is fine on the back half of the property. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenient to the Eisenhower museum and library. Quiet and peaceful park right in the heart of town. Staff were very friendly. Abilene does not do anything on Mondays!. The trolley does not run. Attractions are and museums (not Eisenhower) are closed. The old west town is out of business and the buildings are falling down yet Abilene still advertises it. The campground is nice and we would stay here again but not on a Sunday-Monday. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A fairly clean RV park. Friendly management. Level and wide sites, gravel roads. This is a quiet park. Located 3 blocks from the Eisenhower Library/Museum. This is a easy in and out park. They have WiFi, however antennas are located on the office and the restroom/laundry building which means you had better be located in the front portion of the park. I was in the rear section and there was NO WiFi coverage here. Check to see where your site will be before paying to be sure you can get WiFi coverage if that is important to you. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Truth in advertising/deceptive advertising?? When a park offers a service, they should offer it completely. WIFI, that thing that has taken us from the shabby little room with a phone connection, to the comfort of our own RV. This park says they have WIFI, they really don't, they have 2 antennas, one at the bath house the other in the big rig site. By there own admission the only place you can get WIFI to work, is in the office. An office which seemed to be closed much more then it was open. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean park with plenty of room at the pull-through sites. Friendly staff. Located on the south edge of town and within walking distance to Eisenhower Center, but not a lot of traffic noise. Nothing fancy, but more than adequate for several days' stay. Heck, who would want to stay in Abilene longer than that anyway? We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed on the way back home. Very nice owner, we called ahead and when we asked about pizza places they took the time to look up some numbers so we could have pizza delivered to the site. Small pool, but good enough. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Gravel wide access roads. Friendly, efficient office. There are two parts to campground. Front part of campground near office is in trees and are the wider sites. Back part of campground has an open aspect with long gravel pull-thru sites with one row having grass between sites, the other row was all gravel. All sites were level and most had full hook-up. The campground lacked ambience and could have done with a little more maintenance but a good location to visit the Eisenhower Museum. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an OK park to stay overnight. The restrooms and laundry are dated and the grounds not real well maintained. Convenient to Eisenhower Museum and Library. There's a convenience store on the grounds and a nice lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects off-season weekly rate. This park is a good base for exploring attractions in Abilene, Salina, Junction City and Fort Riley, as it is very close to I-70. Park has both back-in and pull-through sites available. Our site (#30) was long enough to park the car behind the motorhome, but it was not level. Utilities worked well, as did cable. There was one interruption to Wi-Fi service, but it was handled promptly. Interior roads are in good condition. One of the best things about this park is there is a windbreak of trees to help block the wind, and the wind can blow really hard in the winter in Kansas. There are not many shade trees within the park, however. There are many long-term campers here, but most of the sites are neatly kept, and the park has been quiet during our nine-day stay. There is a small pond on the property with ducks in residence. We did not check bathroom facilities. Fuel is available on-site. We enjoyed our stay here and will choose it again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is old. Restrooms/showers need updating or replacing badly. They have that old, musty smell to them. However, the water was hot. The pool appears to be fairly new and was sparkling clean. It appeared that most of the campers were workers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff are friendly, the sites are well kept. The pool is clean & an attendant is usually on duty. We have stayed here multiple times and have no complaints and would recommend this campground as a safe and good place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
To shower, you must hold down the knob, that only produces hot hot water!! Dirty and very old. It was 105 degrees that day, and a hot dirty shower was not welcome. The pool was the only saving grace. No shade and an unkempt campground. Will not stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Four Seasons RV Acres on the eastern side of Abeline (Exit 281) was a great little find. The park offers pull-through sites, Wi-Fi, free cable, swimming pool, small fishing pond, good pet walk area, fuel ( a little more pricey than other gas stations), a pizza service in their office area/camp store and not much noise from I-70. With our discounts ( they offer several ) we paid 25.20. The sites were gravel and our levelers didn’t require supports under the pads, the water pressure was about 50 lbs and the electric was within specs. There appear to be quite a few full time residents in the park but they tended to just mind their own business. Our Verizon cell worked fine and we were just a few miles from the Russell Stover candy factory ( stop in if you like chocolate ). Would consider this campground for future overnight stops. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites are somewhat close together and the full hook-up sites are not very long. We ended up in a 30amp water/electric site and it was great. It was long and wider than the full hook up sites. The park is somewhat dated and has many run down trailers with junk on the site. The price is right if coming to the area. WiFi was advertised but I think they are sharing a satellite internet service with the park so the connection was extremely slow. We came to visit the Eisenhower library so only stayed for a couple of days, so the park was just perfect for a short visit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We do not have AAA and that is the only discount available. From the other reviews, we were a bit concerned about this park. We did not have reservations and just drove by to see what it look liked since the Eisenhower Presidential Library is only three blocks away. We were pleasantly surprised. No kids. No transient workers. Only about a total of ten nice RV's in the park. Sites were very level. Great places to walk our dog and MIFI signal is great. The swimming pool appeared to be very well maintained. The only draw-back was that we asked for a site with no trees so that we could get a satellite signal. We could not get a signal due to a tree right next to us. Could have moved, but we were already set up and leveled. My husband even cut some tree branches, but it did not help. They do have cable TV for free. He connected to the cable so that we could watch TV. Recommend that if you stay here, scout it out and make sure you have satellite signal before you rent a spot - if that is on your "must have" list. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Suppose all the transient workers have moved on since it was very quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spots too close together. Many permanent residents with 2 cars. Lots of trucks, welding equip, construction vehicles around. Nice office people, good store. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Park was very full with lots of families with kids. Staff was sure to lead us to a very long pull-through in remote area with big shade trees. Rest of park was crowded and noisy with lots of seasonal/permanent residents. Has a nice, big pool. Would use again for an overnight while traveling I-70. Far enough away from road to be quiet. This was a AAA discounted rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Convenience store with gas station and restaurant. Bathrooms are clean but stuffy and need paint. The shower curtain is old and there was no place to put soap in the shower. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
An older park, a little run down: needs a little housekeeping. We scheduled a late arrival, they gave us our space number and were to have information on the door for us, which we hoped included a park map. Upon arrival, there was no information and we drove around hunting for our space, which was not marked well. A car was parked in our spot and we ended up one spot over, right under a street light, that glowed into our bedroom window all night. If you want to stay at a place overnight, this might be a good spot to stop, otherwise you might want to look farther down the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here based on other reviews. We were very disappointed, site they gave us was on the "street", in area of long term residents, no shade, yet there were numerous shady sites available (and continued to be available right through our departure). The picnic table is right on the street and after a big thunderstorm it became an island surrounded by water which didn't recede until late in the day. We had to avoid the dog waste to walk to the restrooms and showers. The Wi-Fi is spotty at best, there were several times I tried to connect only to find no signal. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good value for $. We were escorted to the site which was long and mostly level. Because we were only using 30 amps we were in a more remote spot. Access roads easy to negotiate. Friendly staff. Would stay here again although it is several miles from downtown Abilene. Wi-Fi was $6.95 per day. Did not use. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the second time we have stayed here for a week. The weekly rate is $125, which is $18 a night. It's nice and staff is very helpful. Really didn't notice any freeway noise. There's a Shell convenience store on site and an RV dealership there too. They have cable and you can get WiFi for a reasonable fee, good enough to game with. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
From the highway this appears to be a nice shady park. The sites are shady, but gravel and dusty with the Kansas wind. And the highway noise is really quite loud. The pool was nasty when we were there. The showers are okay, but nothing special. There is an RV dealer on site which could be handy, and the store is pretty well stocked. It's probably okay for an overnight stay if you are in a hard-side camper that blocks out the highway noise. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
First of all, site was very unlevel,needs gravel in the sites, and they are close together on the pull throughs! Water pressure was a problem. Called the store, they sent a young man to our site, water pressure was fine then. Next morning, no water at all. Called the store again, to find out there were several reports of low water pressure so they were working on the problem. Finally, in the late afternoon, water was on again with decent pressure. However, at 6:30 am the next morning, no water pressure! We informed the store, we were planning on leaving before 9 a.m. as they had someone coming in that day for that site. So, no morning shower! will not return to this campground! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate based on one week cost of $125. Very nice and competent staff. Nice long site and easy hook ups. About 15 stations to watch. Wi-Fi is AmeriSpot which is reasonable for a week and 11MB. They'll even arrange for the handyman to fill the propane and bring it back if you have to be gone. Right off the freeway but far enough back and down from the freeway that there is next to no noise at night. Also has the advantage of a Shell station right there with diesel and easy access for big rigs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park was nice sized and had many pull through sites. The grounds were well maintained as was the pool. We did not use the restrooms or showers. They had full hookups, cable and WiFi, although the latter was not free ($7 for 24 hrs.). The camp store was well-stocked and had fast food to go. Staff were friendly and helpful. The sites were generally narrow, but accessible to big rigs, however there were quite a few season/yearly residents, whose RVs were not necessarily in good repair. OK for an overnight stop - probably wouldn't stay there much longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is affiliated with a dealership as well, which makes it wonderful for getting
accessories or help. They also have a full service area. They are located right off of I-70, but the campground itself is far enough off the highway to elminiate most highway noise. Every time we've camped here, the people have all been friendly. It may not be the fanciest, but it has been a good experience every time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
