PH is an awesome course, if you're wanting to camp it's probably your best bet.

I thought this would be a good place to camp as well - the course is right next to the sites.  The last few times I have been out to PH, there is a big 5th wheel parked up front - possibly the camp host?    Well, nobody has been home when I knocked to check it out so far.  I have never seen more than a couple of campers at one time out there.  Looks like electric hookups at a few of the sites.  Once it gets cooler, I may spend a couple of nights out there

it's perfect for camping and less than an hour from wyandott and waterworks.  just set up your stuff and camp.  even if he's not there at first the old guy in the 5th wheel will come around and get the fee.  probably 2 bucks


hot as a mofo for camping though

What ever happened to the course at Pamona Lake? I never got a chance to play there but heard good things about it and camping is available there. I just looked all over for references to the course and found nothing though. Did they pull it?

I was out there not long ago.  The 18 hole course is free.  Very good course and still well maintained.  Pine blight is going to ruin the cool anhyzer on hole 4.  On the camping (pay) side, there are 9 holes that arean't so good, but I didn't go over there to see if that is still in.

I'm surprised the KDGA doesn't have it on their course directory. The PDGA doesn't list it either. And when I went to the park's website they don't mention disc golf at all. I suspect the course would get used more if people knew it was there. Pomona Lake is a great place to camp and fish too. I learned to water ski on that lake.

Manhattan, KS has a decent setup for what you're looking for.  Not sure if you're interested in traveling that far....

http://www.pdga.com/course-details?id=336

The course is out at the Tuttle Creek Riverpond area.  There are numerous campsites within walking distance of the course.  The course actually winds through most of the camping sites.  RV hookups too.  They also have furnished cabins available.  There is a swimming area, decent fishing, etc. 

The course is nice.  Pretty long. 

I would avoid it like the plague for the next week or two though... as the Idiot Stampede is currently going on.  They setup everything very close to the course, and because of all the fences and crap they bring, most of the course isn't accessible for the duration of the festival.  But other than that terrible time of year, it's a very nice place to camp and throw disc.

I play here daily as they are within 8 mins of my place. 18 hole (free) on the north side of the lake, 9 hole (pay to park) on the south side.

Heres a challenging alternate layout for the pitch & putt pay side...
Tee                 Basket
1                     3
4                     9
3                     6
7                     7
5                     2
2                     4
8                     5
6                     8
9                     1

Okay, now that we have established that the course at Pomona Lake is still there why isn't it acknowledged anywhere? The maps you linked to show no disc golf course anywhere, the Corps of Engineers web site has no mention of disc golf there and it isn't listed with PDGA or KDGA. Do you think they wonder why they don't get many people out there to play it? Someone needs to get it listed so people can find out about it.

I looked in the PDGA online course directory but I wasn't looking for Vassar, KS. I've never even heard of Vassar. But it's nice to know it is actually in the directory. I stand corrected.
