Date of Stay: Sunday September 11 – Tuesday September 13, 2016 (2 nights)
Website: Linn County Park
23095 Valley Road (follow signs to Marina to check in)
LaCygne, KS 66040
Description: Located in east central Kansas on 2600 acre Lake LaCygne (cooling reservoir for KCPL coal-fired power plant). No swimming or skiing allowed, only fishing boats. We stayed on site 112 in View Point Loop next to some permanent residents. There’s no stay limit here so some sites are very messy. Paved roads with gravel sites having W/E, mostly 30A but a few 50A like ours. Check in at the Marina to see which ones are available at this all first come first serve cg. They even have a few FHU sites but I imagine they are all taken by the residents. Nice dump station located in the back of the park along with a few rustic cabins. We enjoyed a waterfront site but there were many 30A sites available in a more wooded setting in several different loops. There are about 113 sites here.
Trash and Recycle: Trash cans located throughout the park for every 3 – 4 campsites. No recycle.
Activities: Not much to do here but it is a nice place to walk and see deer and wild turkey in the wooded area. There is a fish feeder in our cove that goes off automatically. We noticed it at 1:00 and 4:00, and some huge catfish love it. Nearby small town had a decent grocery store and Dollar General but not much else. They say that cygnet swans show up here occasionally. That would have been awesome to see.
