Nice, neat small state park.

Very clean, camping and RV facilities. Pretty little fishing, swimming lake. Surrounded by hills. A few hiking trails. This made a nice break in our trip from Oklahoma to Colorado.

A hidden treasure amongst the bluffs that enclose this beautiful, natural haven! Its like stepping into a foreign land after driving past miles of flat fields, to this hidden oasis. If you havent seen it, make the time! P.S.The season change has made the tree's colors very vibrant as a perfect autumn backdrop to any photo!

We were looking for a half-way point to spend the night between Ouray, CO and Kansas City, MO. We found it in this remote state park near Scott City. Then we saw on-line that it was rated by Natonal Geo as one of the best state parks in the country. Had to check it out. You're driving through typical Kansas... More

This is a beautiful valley with a small fishing lake. We love to take our bikes over and ride one lap around the lake. About two thirds of the way around the lake is paved and the rest is gravel. It's great scenery and exercise. There's also some paddle boats or canoes for rent. Do be careful not to get... More

The lake there stands out for its bluffs and canyons when all around you in Western KS is seeming nothingness. Scott City is due North of Garden City and this area just north of them, but be warned that it's primitive and have a tent if not staying in a town. It's close-ish to Monument Rocks (20 minutes) and Castle... More

Really the only thing worth visiting in the western half of the state, but it's worth it. Beautiful spring-fed lake and picturesque camp sites.

Had a great day. Worth every penny of the $5 admission. Ancient pueblo, historic battle field, nice shady picnic and a swimming beach.

We had a little time to kill before heading to our next destination...husband looked at the map and found Lake Scott State Park so we took a little detour and are glad we did. The park has a lot of neat features that are typical of a state park: camping, picnic areas, and some trails but also some unique features:... More
