State Parks

Twenty-six state parks, including the Prairie Spirit Rail Trail, invite you to explore Kansas outdoors. Whatever your interest — hiking, camping, wildlife watching, fishing, bike riding, horseback riding, hunting, or just plain relaxing, a Kansas state park has what you’re looking for. Most offer utility and primitive camping and access to lakes, trails and wildlife areas. A few are preserved natural areas, so you can enjoy unspoiled, wild Kansas. Many parks host events such as concerts, festivals, and competitions. If you’ve never stayed at a Kansas state park, use this guide to find the perfect getaway. If you haven’t visited recently, look again - there’s more than meets the eye!
