Arrow Best Small Town Airports

I am seeking information on the best, all around small town airport in the state of Kansas. A few things that this airport must have would be a place to pitch a tent and a close by place to eat and of course get some gas. I hope to make this information available before the big Oshkosh air show this summer.

I've heard good things about the Hutchinson Municipal Airport (http://hutchgov.com/department/index.asp?fDD=20-0 - broken link) and its awesome steakhouse. Not sure about camping, though.

Sounds like Wichita to me! You can pitch your tent right there on Kellogg Ave! Seriously here is what you want:

In Beloit you can camp about anywhere and Lake Waconda is not far away.

Garden City has a nice but small Italian restaurant out at the airport which gets a lot of business considering how far it is out of town. But I wouldn't bet on the camping unless theres somewhere in the area I'm forgetting about.

Goodland has one of the best airports around. Capable of landing jets, in fact there are two kept there right now. An excellent cafe right there by the runway. Goodland has just decided to extend their runway and they are looking at beginning an aviation mechanics school there. All good things, you should contact the airport - Renner Field.
