Overview

Overview

Longview Campground is situated on Perry Lake in the lush Kansas forest, offering peaceful, family-oriented camping.

Natural Features:

Perry Lake Dam was completed in 1966 to help with flood control for the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. Today, the lake boasts 160 miles of shoreline and 11,150 surface acres of water, creating countless recreational activities for visitors, and earning it the nickname "paradise on the plains."

The campground is surrounded by the lake on one side and a dense canopy of forest on the other, making it ideal for those wishing to enjoy the best of both environments.

Recreation:

Perry lake has a reputation for being one of the best sailing lakes in the region; however, boaters of all types will enjoy the many opportunities offered here, whether it's sailing, power boating or canoeing.

Perry Lake offers excellent fishing: white crappie, flathead catfish, walleye, white bass, channel catfish and sauger are in abundance throughout the lake.

In addition to the vast lake, the area has approximately 21,600 acres of public land dedicated to wildlife management: turkey, deer, quail, pheasant, rabbit, squirrel, duck and geese are all found on these federal lands.

For hikers, the 29-mile Perry Lake loop trail offers a range of terrain and difficulty from easy, gentle slopes in the south to rugged, varying elevation changes in the north.

Although Perry Lake trail is for hikers only, horse back riders will find plenty of dedicated equestrian trails available on the west side of the lake, near Perry State Park.

Facilities:

Longview Campground is known as a quiet, family-oriented destination. Non-electric campsites are located along the shoreline, offering excellent views of the lake and the sunset each night.

Additional electric sites are located in a heavily wooded area at the top of a bluff overlooking the lake. A large group campsite is also available, perfect for large parties or family functions.
