RV Nomad Life | Best Kept Secret Campground In Kansas!
They always say Kansas is flat and boring, but in reality, it has some of the best camping in America. Come check out Hillsdale State Park and why it is one of our favorite places to camp in the United States!
We stayed in the Sunflower Campground at Hillsdale State Park. This park is host to a wide variety of activities including camping, boating, fishing, archery, a shooting range, beach, primitive camping, and full hook up RV Campgrounds. They have an excellent cell signal which made it the perfect place to get some work done and relax on the beautiful prairies of Kansas. Each site has a fire pit and a picnic table. The sites are also oversized. Many of the RVers here have boats next to their RVs and still have space! We lived about 30 minutes away for years and never even knew this was here. If you are looking for a good spot to hang out near Kansas City, we highly recommend this location. We paid $160/week.

Manhattan is largest town in the Flint Hills, and is home to the Flint Hills Discovery Center.
Tuttle Creek Reservoir is 5 miles (8 km) north of Manhattan. The lake was formed when the Big Blue River was dammed for flood control in the 1960s, and it is now a state park that offers many recreational opportunities.
