This location is the parking and drive areas for the nursery and garden center we use to run (too much work getting in the way of our travels, so we closed it). Our home sits on the property and we would love to visit if we are around. Access to the property is convenient to Highway 75 (N & S) and I-70 (E & W). Some shade depending on where you park. Spots are fairly level, gravel or grass growing through gravel, most locations not an issue when it rains.
We overlook a fair sized lake.
• Prefer non smokers, but will tolerate smokers as long as they dispose of butts properly.
• You must keep an eye on children and pets – water is close by, also woods with poison-ivy.
• No generators after 10 pm or before 7 am.
• No vicious dogs, or guests.
Paved county road to property, two 40' wide drives entering property. Gravel drives and parking.
Tow vehicle parking is available next to the RV, and we also have several other areas that are accessible.
Kansas State Capitol Building, Kansas Museum of History, Kansas Children's Discovery Center, Combat Air Museum, Evil Knievel Museum, Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site, Lake Shawnee, Gage Park, Ted Ensley Gardens, Historic Ward Meade Park, World Famous Topeka Zoo. 10 minute drive to a plethora of dinning and shopping choices.
Enjoyed our stay. Large level area with water and electric. Host was very accommodating. Great place to stay if you want to see the Wizard of Oz Museum or the Evil Knievel Museum. Looking forward to more great adventures.
We added a day to our stay so we had time for the Oz museum. Tom was very accommodating.
Nice location, nice people, nice site. We really enjoyed visiting with Tom and Bobbie. They have a very nice property and we appreciated having water and electric available. The Oz museum is about 40 minutes away and is a must see in my opinion. The Oz winery was fun too.
Thanks Kskodi, I hope you get on the road soon!
Tom and Bobbi were wonderful hosts! We spent most of our time at Blue Acres with Tom. This was our first Boondockers Welcome stay. We have a 5 and almost 3 year old and he was awesome with them. He went above and beyond and even got water toys out for them to play with. We appreciated being able to use his 50 amp hookups since it was in the 90s and he even offered us water, even though we didn't need it. Their property is absolutely beautiful! Our family enjoyed their backyard and lake view. It was a short 20 minute drive into downtown Topeka, so all in all, it was a perfect stop. We would definitely stay there again and wish the Garcias the best on their future adventures!
This is my second time staying here and Dagny (my Beagle) and I both love it!
KSkodi is very friendly and helpful and makes for a wonderful host!
I needed a place to stay while driving back east and this was a fantastic location and KSkodi was an excellent host! The place is spacious & quiet and KSkodi was very accommodating in making sure I was setup and had everything I need.
I would definitely recommend this as a good place to stay!
What a nice amiable and helpful host. He helped us to set up and also provided me with some wooden blocks to add to my small collection :-) ended up staying two nights instead of one, zero hassle. Thanks KSkodi
