Turkey Point is found in the rolling hills of eastern Kansas, providing guests with miles of gorgeous scenery to explore either on foot or in the water. Canines are generally quite welcome here, although Turkey Point insists that pets steer clear of indoor structures like the showers and restrooms. Make sure that if Fido does come along, you've got them on a leash throughout your stay.
If you're trying to spend the night at Turkey Point, there are 48 sites in all, with a few different options available. The base rate campsites are standard, non-electric sites that cater only to tents. If you're coming in an RV or pop-up camper, or would just prefer a powered site, you can choose from either a 30 amp site for $20 an evening, or a 50 amp site for $21 per evening. These two options both come standard with water hookups in addition to electricity. Public restrooms and showers are centrally located at both sections of the campground.
Due to the camp being split into two distinct areas, there are two different group camps available to reserve. The first of these is the Turkey Point group camp, which offers pit toilets, a group shelter, water and electrical connections, and the standard amenities like a picnic table and campfire ring. The second is the Lakeview group camp, which is much more developed than Turkey Point and offers flushing restrooms, camping pads, a children's playground, a group shelter, full electrical and plumbing connections, and a grilling station. Turkey Point will run groups $50 per evening, while Lakeview is much more expensive at $160 per evening.
The adjacent Melvern Lake is Turkey Point's biggest draw. The over 7,000-acre lake contains several fish species, making it a boon for avid anglers, and the camp's free-use boat ramp gives boaters an easy way to get into the water.
If you've got a water-loving woofer at the end of that leash, you're guaranteed to have a furrific camping experience at Turkey Point Campground!
