PRATT – Summer is winding down and before we know it, school will start and another busy fall will be underway. However, there’s still time for some summer fun at Kansas state parks, and Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Park staff are working to ensure your last days of summer will be memorable.
Kansas state parks offer the best venue for outdoor fun: camping, hiking, biking, horseback riding, boating, fishing, or just relaxing. But add to that an impressive schedule of special events, and you know your end-of-summer state park stay will be a blast.
Just a few of the special events already scheduled include weekly live music and the Tiara Triathlon at El Dorado State Park, Campground Christmas at Lovewell State Park, Kids’ Fishing Derby at Clinton State Park, and a barbecue contest at Eisenhower State Park.
To learn more about these events and others at your favorite Kansas state park, check the State Parks “Event Calendar” here: ksoutdoors.com/State-Parks/Event-Calendar. Or call your local state park office because events are scheduled daily.
Don’t let summer get away without at least one last trip to a Kansas state park. It could be a long winter.
