Overview

Overview

Hillsboro Cove Campground is a spacious and shady campground located on the shores of Marion Reservoir. This Kansas getaway draws in thousands of visitors annually to enjoy the pristine lake shoreline and surrounding canopy of forest.

Natural Features:

Completed in 1968, Marion Reservoir encompasses 6,200 acres of water surrounded by 6,000 acres of public lands.

The surrounding expanse of forest provides visitors with endless recreational activities, set against the backdrop of the sparkling lake.

Recreation:

Popular activities include camping, boating, fishing and hunting.

Numerous hiking and biking trails snake through the forest around the lake, and the Willow Walk Nature Trail in nearby Cottonwood Point Campground is especially popular for wildlife enthusiasts. Campers are likely to spot white-tailed deer, pelicans, raccoons and various waterfowl.

Anglers will find an abundance of channel catfish, walleye, white bass and wipers, and a boat ramp is provided at the campground for convenient access to the lake.

Facilities:

The campground offers 94 individual sites, along with two group camping areas and two group day use picnic shelters. Campsites offer plenty of shade and include picnic areas with grills and tables. Electrical pedestals are either 50 or 30 amp. Every 50 amp pedestal has 50/30/20 outlets available. All 30 amp pedestals have 30/20 outlets available. The 20 amp outlets are typical residential 110 Volt wall outlets.

There are 51 individual campsites and one group camping area that can hold up to 80 people. The individual sites have tables, grills, sun shelters and electric hookups. The group area also has a large pavilion.

Nearby Attractions:

The nearby communities of Hillsboro and Marion offer additional tourist attractions. Both cities have a nationally recognized Art and Crafts show, as well as a variety of restaurants and shops.
