Arkalon park is located 10 miles NE of Liberal KS on HWY 54. The park offers concrete pads, water, 30/50 amp power for campers, and well maintained grassy areas for tents. Most sites have covered picnic tables. All sites have fire rings and BBQ grills. There are hiking trails, a sandy volleyball area, fishing ponds on the property, and an amazing playground for kids.  There is also plenty of room to set up outdoor games. A fully equipped bath house is available for your convenience.  For your safety, there is a gate that will be locked every night from 10 p.m. - 7 a.m. and several tornado shelters (which hopefully, we never have to use).

Arkalon park is named after the town of Arkalon that was founded in 1888 at the Cimarron river crossing of the Chicago, Kansas and Nebraska railway, a part of the Rock Island. Town lots were cheap, and people flocked in by the hundreds. However, the deep sand of the area was a serious handicap to the movement of horse-drawn freight, and the town never succeeded in establishing itself as a profitable marketing point. It was sustained for years by the large stockyards but by the 1920's most of the population had gone.

There is a wonderful view of the Mighty Sampson of the Cimarron Railroad Bridge that is still in use today.  The bridge was a new design, built in 1939, out of necessity after three different bridges at this location colapsed during a span of two decades.  The bridge is 113 feet above the river bed (which is now dry), 1269 feet long, and is a floating bridge.  It sits on pylons but is not actually attached to them.  It was a contender for the 8 wonders of Kansas Architecture award.

Its always a great stay. We go at least twice a year there and is clean, quiet and the amenities are wonderful.

Rhonda Eisel

It was great stay except for a cross country meet that was taking place in the park on Saturday morning.

James Farley

Another fantastic stay at the park. This was our 3rd stay this year and we hoped to get another one in before the park is closed for the season. Unfortunately, that will not happen so we will look forward to next year. Park hosts are fantastic, friendly and we really enjoy visiting with them. The park is very well maintained and the two workers that are always there, I believe their names are Gerald and Daniel, could be wrong on that, are to be commended on their work. They are very friendly and always respect our space. Thanks again and we will look forward to next year! Spot and Sue Farley

Brian Veara

Really great value. Sites are level, 50amp, water and cement slab. The road is is gravel. Camp hosts were friendly and helpful

Daniel Schmidt

Secluded campground. Don't let the entrance road scare you. Not real far off the highway but a long ride on a service road to get there. Have all you need when you go in because any services are a ride to get to.

Kent Holcomb

Love this campground. The road going in is a bit rough but camping is great with nearly level sites for our small rig. Bathroom showers are a little rough. Ice on site. Kind hosts. An inexpensive place to truly rest after a day of traveling.

Sue Wilson

Nice park. Great cement parking pads. It was very quiet. It made a great overnight stopping point. If I had known that it wasn't in town, I would have booked 2 nights. Would stay again if we are traveling through the area.

Steve DeLaTorre

We easily made reservations and paid online. This was a stop along the way and we didn't know what to expect. Finding it was a bit confusing because we were over thinking it. Just trust the signs. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised! Clean and well maintained park. Children's playground looked new and safe. Water and electric worked. The price was fantastic at $10 a night! If you didn't use them it was $5. We will definitely put this in our travel journal as a place to return.

Debra DeBartolo

Nice people, groundskeepers! Quiet, peaceful but Verizon doesn't work very well here :( wish they stayed open past October 15th! We'll return for sure, highly recommend.

Debra DeBartolo

Ground caretakers Very nice! Area plush + pretty. Price is reasonable + appreciated. Restrooms/showers far 4handicapped. Not a complaint, just warning. Sprinklers run forever

Gary Lynn

Park is great. Quiet, private, green grass, trails and things to do for smaller kids. Giving 4 stars instead of 5 because of flies and mosquitos; might be due to the weird weather this year.

Campground Response

The weather has been a little weird this year, but thankfully, we have actually had some rain. On a bad note, that always brings out the mosquitoes. The flies are ruthless as well. Mosquitoes are pretty much gone now and the flies aren’t so mean any more…thank you for your great review.

Ruth Ann Splan

This is a very accommodating RV Park. The park host are friendly, the grounds are kept in a very good manner. Clean bath house. My only down fall is the amount of grass burs and stickers. Its hard to walk your pets with out getting their paws full. I love this place and the peace and quite I enjoy here. Come every year!!!

Campground Response

We’ve been fighting those stickers and are having a hard time staying on top of it. They are ruthless little burgers! We are glad you love our park so much that you keep coming back. It’s always good to see you!

Jeanne Kraus

Very pretty little park. The camp host was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay at Arkalon when I am back in the area. It was beautiful

Campground Response

Thank you for your review. We love our park and glad you had a good stay with us. We look forward to seeing you again.

Mary Murphy

When you turn right off the freeway, go down about a mile to the railroad track. You will see a sign for the campground. Then it’s another mile. GPS tells you that you have arrived right at the turn. Warning—-those mosquitoes are vicious. Otherwise, it’s a nice camp ground. I heard trains but it was not bad. No road noise either.

Campground Response

Thank you for reviewing our campground and thank you for making the directions plain. It can get a little confusing sometimes. The mosquitoes are much better now (thank goodness!) I hope they didn’t spoil your trip!

Was a pleasant surprise! Well kept campground. The host was very nice and helpful. We will be back, for a longer stay!

Campground Response

Thank you for the kind words. We work hard to keep things looking good for your enjoyment. Hopefully we will see you again when you are passing through our neck of the woods.

Thomas Garrisi

Beautiful, grassy park, with widely spaced concrete pads. All the utilities work. Barb, the host, was welcoming and helpful. Good wi-fi but no cell service. Historic train bridge at edge of park. Look up Samson Bridge – Liberal Kansas. Train noise was minor. Short dirt road was smooth and well maintained. Make your reservations on Rover Pass and be sure to follow the directions there. They were explicit and accurate. We will definitely be back!

Campground Response

James Farley

This is hidden gem in sw Kansas. It’s quiet and peaceful and close to home and very convenient for us. Barbara always goes above and beyond as the camp host and she and her husband are always great to talk to and check on us to see if we need anything. We have never had a bad experience out here except for the weather. We will definitely be back over and over again.
