  • We've stayed here many times. Best stuff: Open spaces, peaceful quiet settings, very friendly and accommodating staff, easy access to interstates and a beautiful, paved trail of several miles all around the lake which is excellent for bicycling or walking/running. Pet friendly. The rent is extremely low. The only downside, if you are staying for more than 3 - 4, days is that there is no sewer connection on site. You need to disconnect and drive to the dump station just outside the RV entry point but still on the park grounds. Cannot recommend this place too highly.
  • Did not like the parking at the east side boat ramp people where fishing off the dock where people where trying to put there boats in the lake. This was opening day of Trout season. People where parking in parking spot for the trucks with boat trailers. The state spent slot of money to build the big baseball facility but did not put any money to improve the boat ramps and parking area. Other than that Lake Shawnee is a nice fishing Lake.
  • Signs posted No Sunflower Seeds, seen the shells from them on the Diamond weren't happy, Love the nesting in front of the bleachers, first time I've been out there nice place
  • Had a lot of fun there. Shelter house one is very nice. The lake was butieful. And there is some good fishin.
  • Beautiful Campground. Very reasonably priced, and the staff absolutely wonderful to get along with. Facilities are clean well-maintained. Great place to go geocaching
