RV Rental in Western Kansas

Before embarking on your western Kansas RV rental vacation, it’s important to check the opening days and times for the following attractions, as well as the campground dates and availability. While some campgrounds are open year-round, some are only open during the summer months.


Nicknamed the "Christmas City of the High Plains", WaKeeney should be a must-visit place on any traveler’s list – especially if they’re a fan of Christmas lights, which the town displays year-round! One of the biggest events that occurs in this town is the Christmas Tree Lighting, which happens on the Saturday following Thanksgiving.

The Christmas tree being lit is one of the largest Christmas Trees between Kansas City and Denver, and it stands at around 35 feet in height. The tree remains lit until New Year's Day and is certainly something those traveling through western Kansas during this period won’t want to miss!

Other fun (but non-Christmas related) things to do in WaKeeney include a visit to Shiloh Vineyard for some wine-tasting, as well as the Trego County Historical Society Museum.

Where to Camp

There’s a WaKeeney KOA Journey Campground located within the town and it offers spacious RV sites with access to 30 – 50 amp electric, water, sewer, and cable TV hook-ups. There are also additional restroom, shower and laundry room facilities available.
