Sappa State Park


Oberlin, Kansas

I was tempted to stay at the rest area since it was so nice, but the state park I had in mind was only a couple miles away.  So we went to check it out.

From what I understood about it was it had several spots where electrical hookups were to be had at $10 a night on the honor system - drop a donation in a box thing.  Elsewhere were many spots to dry camp.

Claire was having us take a dirt road that had been gated off with a flimsy metal gate.  I can never really trust her directions so we continued on a little ways and came across a couple of these signs.

We must be on the right track Beans.

This camp area had only one electrical hookup.  Not several.
There were no restrooms anywhere within sight.

Looks good to me.

Yep, this must be the place.

There were no designated spots.  Just park anywhere on the grass.
There are lots of nice big shades trees to choose from too.
And...no one else around either.
This will do just fine.

I eventually came to the conclusion that the dirt road led to the State Park area and we are in a City Park area.  The state part has been closed off for some reason, so Claire wasn’t steering us wrong.
I’d rather be here anyway.
