Quote: This is a great place to camp if you live on the Southwest corner of Kansas City or live near Lawrence. Check it out too if you're passing through.

Camping on the Cheap


Clinton Lake has some of the best fishing spots around, but hikers will love the primitive camping area as well. If you don't have much money, you'll love the idea that it's free.

Quick Tips:

Be sure to bring all your food and gear. It's at least 20 minutes away from a gas station and even farther to get to Wal-Mart.

Best Way To Get Around:

You'll have to drive to get here, but hiking is the best way to get to your campsite.
