Clinton Campground lies just south of Lawrence inside Clinton State Park and is a popular weekend getaway for those living in the city or nearby Topeka. Sites at Clinton Campground have electrical and water hookups, and there is a dump station nearby if you need to empty your rig's sewage tank. Besides those hookups, there are few amenities when you camp in an RV at Clinton Campground, but most visitors are coming here to enjoy the area’s spectacular natural surroundings and seek the rustic setup. An extensive trail system encircles Clinton Lake and is popular with hikers, cyclists, and those just needing a place to walk their dog.
Clinton Lake has its own marina too, perfect for launching a kayak or canoe, both of which can be rented there. If you’re an angler and have the proper state license, Clinton Lake also has an abundance of white and smallmouth bass along with channel and blue catfish. But don’t feel like you need a bunch of gear to enjoy the tranquil waters – just jump in to enjoy its coolness on a hot summer day.
Another advantage of camping at Clinton Campground is its proximity to so many of Kansas’s urban areas; Lawrence, Topeka (the capital), and Kansas City (its largest metropolitan area) are all within a half-hour drive of the RV campground. Interstate 70, which connects Topeka with KC, is just north of Clinton State Park and several truck stops dot the highway.
While Clinton Lake should be your first stop for outdoor adventure when you book an RV in Douglas County, there are plenty of other options worth checking out once you’ve had your fill of the state park. You could start by enjoying an easy paddling trip on the Kansas River (referred to as the Kaw). Shops in both Topeka and Lawrence not only rent boats but also run guided adventures for those who aren’t ready to go it alone. It’s a lazy and wide river though, so don’t worry, it’s suitable for all experience levels.
There’s nothing quite like a picnic when you’re camping with an RV, and one of the best spots to have one is right in the middle of Lawrence at South Park. The wonderfully landscaped green space is replete with colorful flowers, large grassy areas, and a jungle gym for the kids to play on. You couldn’t ask for a better place to crack open the potato salad.
Another option is to rent a bicycle in Lawrence and ride the Lawrence River Trails. The nine-mile loop on the north side of the Kansas River is one of the most pleasant ways to spend an afternoon when you get an RV rental near Clinton Campground. If you’re a birdwatcher, this is an excellent spot to see the herons and eagles that make their home in the adjoining wetlands.
As Lawrence is home to the University of Kansas, with its tens of thousands of students, you can bet it has a much more impressive dining and nightlife scene than would be expected for a medium-sized town in the middle of Kansas. Take a stroll down Massachusetts Street, on the northeastern edge of campus, and you’ll be treated to all manners of hip bars, brewpubs, and tasty eateries frequented by the college crowd.
One of the best ways to spend the day when you rent a camper near Clinton Campground is to wander the University of Kansas campus. It’s home to the Spencer Museum of Art, which features some world-class exhibits from both local and international artists, packed into a small and easy to explore space. There’s also the Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics, a museum dedicated to the life of alumni Senator Bob Dole and his contributions to the political process. The Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum has all sorts of displays detailing species, living and extinct, and the role they play in their respective ecosystems. Whatever your interest, you’ll find a museum to enjoy on the KU campus.
However, talk to any KU alumni, and you’ll probably get an earful about their team, the Jayhawks; Lawrence loves college sports. To get in on the fandom, check out the Booth Family Hall of Athletics on the university’s campus. The museum tells a fascinating story of Jayhawks basketball history, from the program’s inception up until now. Even if you’ve never watched a KU game, it’s sure to captivate your imagination and give you a greater appreciation for the game.
One of the more unexpected treats, though is the area vineyards. When you think of good wine, your first thought probably doesn’t involve Kansas. Have your eyes opened to the state’s amazing viticulture scene by visiting one of the wineries to the east of Lawrence where you can do some tastings and pick up a bottle to take home.
