This was a stop we chose simply because we are traveling through Kansas and needed to schedule a break in our trip. But what a pleasant surprise we were in for when we arrived. The campground is quite spacious, with nice shade trees at each...More

You might forget you are in Kansas, and western Kansas at that. It's not a large lake so I imagine it might get crowded on a weekend. But it's a very nice place to spend some time at. The shore fishing was meh, but scenery...More

We have been camping at Lake Scott for years. It is a wonderful place that defies all that is around it. Judging by the farm and pasture land as you approach, you wouldn't think Scott State Park is possible. You can use the full hook-up...More

We stopped here overnight in a 32ft. 5th wheel. It was a little out of the way, but well worth the side trip. It seems to be a well kept secret of the folks in Scott City, so getting a reservation in advance would help....More

Beautiful lake surrounded by bluffs and hundreds of cottonwood trees just beginning to turn golden. What a perfect time to visit. Hike, camp, fish, enjoy the outdoors. Some southwestern Puebloan history here, too. There are ruins within the park called El Quartolejo; the most northeastern...More

Beautiful, small spring fed lake just north of Scott City. The camping areas are set down in a canyon you would never guess are here if you stay up on highway 83. Stayed two nights in the park. You can drive all the way around...More

The area is beautiful! It's very clean and well maintained. My future mother in law has been to parks all of Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas and this one is her favorite. There is something for everyone, especially if you like to hunt, fish, swim, hike,...More

This is the one spot in Southwest Kansas that always has water in it, feed by a natural spring. The park service keeps it clean, lots of camping spots as well as fishing spots. There is hiking also all around the park. Great for a...More

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.
