December 19, 2013
Online reservation system allows reservations up to a year in advance
PRATT – If you’re dreaming of warmer weather and making plans for next year’s state park fun, you can reserve your favorite campsite, beginning noon on Dec. 20. In addition, many Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) 2014 permits and licenses went on sale Monday, Dec. 16, 2013, and they are valid through the rest of 2013 and all of 2014.
Camping and cabin reservations guarantee the holder their spot will be open and ready when they arrive at the park. All of KDWPT’s 121 cabins can be reserved year-round, up to 364 days in advance. About half of each individual park’s sites are reservable for the camping season, which is April 1-Sept. 30, 2014.
Payment in full is required at the time a reservation is made. Reserving a cabin requires a non-refundable $14 reservation fee. Reserving a campsite requires a non-refundable $3 reservation fee per stay.
Remember that when you renew your vehicle tags and registration, you can purchase Kansas State Parks Passports for $15. State Parks Passports will get you into any state park for a year and represent significant savings over traditional annual vehicle permits, which are still available at KDWPT offices for $25. Daily vehicle entrance permits are $5. Annual vehicle permits for seniors and persons with disabilities are available through department offices for $13.75.
