Longview Campground


Longview Campground is situated on Perry Lake in the lush Kansas forest, offering peaceful, family-oriented camping. Longview offers families the chance to camp together in a private group camp setting overlooking the lake.


Facilities

Longview Campground is known as a quiet, family-oriented destination. The upper loop of the group camp has 26 individual 30 amp electric sites located in a heavily wooded area at the top of a bluff overlooking the lake, perfect for large parties or family functions. The lower loop of the group camp is entirely primitve offering a picnic shelter, fire-pit, and vault toilet. Many groups like to rent Longview Group Camp and only use this primitive area but how you use the area is up to you! A gated entrance affords undisturbed peace to the group area totalling over 300 acres. A private shower and restroom facility is located near the entrance gate right between the two loops. Renting the area allows you to use the park how you choose. Use just the electric sites, just the primitive area or a combination of the two, the choice is yours!

Nearby attractions

Come for the camping, stay for the disc golf! Directly adjacent to Longview Group Campground is one of the premier 18-hole disc golf courses in the state. With elevation changes on almost every hole, and plenty of trees to snag a disc, novice and pro alike can have a good time on this course. Perry Lake is also a short drive from Lawrence, Topeka, and Kansas--each offering their own array of unique shopping, dining, and attractions.

Natural feaures

Perry Lake Dam was completed in 1969 to help with flood control for the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. Today, the lake boasts 159 miles of shoreline and 12,000 surface acres of water, creating countless recreational activities for visitors, and earning it the nickname "paradise on the plains." The campground is situated on a high ridge overlooking the lake surrounded entirely by lush forests.

Recreation

Perry lake has a reputation for being one of the best sailing lakes in the region; however, boaters of all types will enjoy the many opportunities offered here, whether it's sailing, power boating or canoeing. Perry Lake offers excellent fishing: white crappie, flathead catfish, walleye, white bass, channel catfish and sauger are in abundance throughout the lake. In addition to the vast lake, the area has approximately 27,000 acres of public land dedicated to wildlife management: turkey, deer, quail, pheasant, rabbit, squirrel, duck and geese are all found on these federal lands. For hikers, the 29-mile Perry Lake loop trail offers a range of terrain and difficulty from easy, gentle slopes in the south to rugged, varying elevation changes in the north. Although Perry Lake trail is for hikers only, horse back riders will find plenty of dedicated equestrian trails available on the west side of the lake, near Perry State Park.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
