Sunflower Summer 2024 Kansas State Parks


From May 25th through August 11th the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks will be partnering with the Kansas Department of Commerce to offer Kansas students (K - 12) with free outdoor recreational opportunities through the Sunflower Summer Program. Kansas students and their families can enter each Kansas State Park one time with a free vehicle permit provided by this program (vehicle permits must be picked up at Park Office or Gate House same day as visit). For more information about each of our state parks click "Find a State Park" under the STATE PARKS tab.
