Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Farrington Park (Windsor)


Where is Farrington Park in Windsor located? I am thinking about camping there and am wondering how far off the trail it is. Anyone have an idea?

Here are directions, which I also added to the Farrington Park page on this website. It's a little less than a mile from the trail.

For additional information or for camping reservations, contact Windsor's Park Board President, Ruth Taylor, at 660-647-5804

From the trailhead, go southeast on Florence St for 8/10 mile. When Florence ends at Jackson St, go left (east) on Jackson 1/10 mile. This puts you at the southwest corner of the park.

Any reviews of this campground?

The camping is good at Farrington Park in Windsor. No showers, but portable John and regular facilities for bathroom near the lake. It is a pretty scene. We saw a striped bass jump out of the water. Three herons flying about. Bats at night. There are large trees near the camping area. It was our first experience camping together.

Does Farrington Park have a municple swimming pool? Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the answer is "no," and the lake isn't really a swimming lake, either.

Uhm... No disrespect to Farrington Park. The park groundskeeper is a wonderful man. Windsor is a lovely town.

But this is "get what you pay for" camping. Your $7 gets you a grassy spot directly under a streetlight with only a pump handle for services. It's a big, pretty park, but the authorized camping section is a tiny little corner. No complaints. It served me well.
