100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Scenic, unique, and plenty of things to do. In the heart of the Flint Hills surrounded by the Council Grove Lake. Experience fun, respite, adventure and peace. By staying with us, you're supporting our Summer Camp programs for youth organizations and adults with Intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are a 501c3 non profit.

The space
Welcome to Big Red. 4 sleeping rooms connected to a large open lobby overlooking the woods and firepit. Centrally located between the swimming pool, sports areas and dining hall - and you still feel secluded in the scenic outdoors. 4 bathrooms (2 handicapped accessible showers and restrooms) and full kitchen. Central air and heating along with Wifi and hot showers make this a luxury camping experience.

Many come for the serene, spiritual atmosphere and others come to take part in our outdoor adventures.

Linens, cooking and eating utensils, coffee and coffee pot, grilling utensils and charcoal grill (bring your own charcoal), indoor fireplace, outdoor fire pit with firewood (bring your own matches), extra stacking chairs, and more!

This is a non-profit summer camp location.

There are four small cabins that each house up to 16 guests. Another building houses four rooms of 8 sharing a lobby and an apartment that houses 2-6 people. You’ll fall in love with all of the natural beauty of the lake and flint hills landscape. It's a wonderful place to hike, relax, play and unwind.

Your contributions aid in continuing our camp operations and programming for summer youth camps, and retreats for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Where you’ll be

Council Grove, Kansas, United States

The neighborhood consists of deer, birds, fish and other critters. How can we complain about that?! This is a beautiful country setting right in the middle of Council Grove Reservoir in the heart of the Kansas Flint Hills. Our cabins are spaced so that, even if there are other guests, you’ll have plenty of space and a feeling of seclusion. You can barely hear the highway.

23 minutes down the gravel road you’ll find the historical town of Council Grove – which has numerous historic landmarks to explore, tasty local cuisine, 2 disc golf courses, public pool, Rec Center, Life Exercise center, shopping and plenty of trails and the River Walk – just to name a few. They have a few fast food places and local diners, as well as a local bar. Gas stations, grocery store, hardware store, and mechanic are all just as you pull into town.

For more to do, Emporia and Manhattan are only 45 minutes away.

I'm a full time Camp Director at a nonprofit called WMC (White Memorial Camp and Retreat Center) where we host camps for everyone ages K-12, school groups, church camps, sports camps, retreats for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and of course Airbnb. I get to help others to explore and create their own adventures! When I'm not hosting a camp or Airbnb guests, I am performing in improv troupes, stand-up comedy shows and dinner theatre in northeast Kansas. Most nights, I take in the sunset over the lake and try new board games. I've had the pleasure of traveling to Peru, England, Spain, and Ireland. I highly recommend Airbnb while abroad as well - if hostels aren't your style. As an Airbnb host, I'm very easy going and adaptable. I like to provide a very laid back and relaxed visit. I will be on call for any requests you might have and I'm happy to facilitate the various activities that our cabin site offers if there's interest, otherwise I will stay out of your way so you can enjoy the wonderful natural surroundings in peace! Myself and the camp staff aim to give you a rustic retreat-style experience with a summer camp twist, sprinkled with nostalgia for good measure.

During your stay

As host and director of the camp, I live in a house on the grounds. During your stay, either I or one of our staff (who live only a few miles away) will be on call to assist you with anything you might need. I’m very easy going and enjoy getting to know the interesting people that pass through here. Though I generally keep to myself so you can enjoy taking in the sights, don’t hesitate to say “hello!” or ask about our camp. I’d be happy to facilitate any activity for your group with enough prior notice.

I tend to respond to Text much quicker when you’re on site.
