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. Suggested Local Attractions: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.

It’s a good place to juice up your vehicle, both electric and water. Had a nice chat with Tom, one of the hosts. It’s just a driveway in front of the house.

The communication was fantastic and the property is dreamy. Our dogs loved running in the back by the lake and creek! Electric for a small fee was perfect and we got a great recommendation for BBQ!

Blue Acres was the perfect location for our 2 day stay. 10 minutes from downtown Topeka. 1 hour from from Leavenworth. Tom, the host was very friendly and helpful. We hope to return when we do another cross country trip.
