Scott State Park

101 West Scott Lake Drive

Located along the Western Vistas Historic Byway about 11 miles north of Scott City, west of US-83 on K-95

Listed by National Geographic as one of the country's 50 must-see state parks and hidden in a canyon in the western Kansas prairie, Scott State Park is a stunning oasis of natural springs, deep wooded canyons, craggy bluffs and early American history. The 1,020-acre park surrounds the 100-acre, spring-fed Scott State Fishing Lake, and a 160-acre wildlife area lies west of the park.

This park is a gem!!! Just a mile away all you can see is the flat flat farmlands of KS and then the road dips down into the canyon and you're in another world with a spring fed lake and shady cottonwood trees, mesas and rock formations. We camped in the Circle Drive campground and had a wonderful time. The campground was full and so very quiet. Sites were well spaced and ours was fully shaded. An easy walk to the swim beach and little bait shop and store open on the weekends. The lake is small and quiet with fishers and kayakers. We swam a lot, fished a bit even though the fish weren't biting, explored the dam, hiked a on the bluffs trail and made the short drive to Monument Rocks. There is a great disk golf course and ADA fishing docks with paved walkway access for those who need it. The campsite bathrooms were open-air and nicely cleaned once a day. The shower house and bathrooms near the swim beach were clean and well kept. We'll be back for sure! Highly Recommend!

Oasis like setting in the western plains of KS. We rented a cabin which had everything we needed and very much enjoyed the patio, firepit, grill, and deck. Park was very clean and grass was mowed. We enjoyed fishing from the shore and from kayaks. While you're there a short drive to Monument Rocks is worth the time. Take time to check out the history in and around the park.

The Place was quite nice but, there were no fire pits at any camping places besides the tent area, and they only have 1 good bathroom by the beach house and the showers only sprayed HOT water. The Steele's house was very interesting and so was battle Cannon the beach/swin area is very nice.

The scenery was beautiful. The trash got out of hand. Could use more dumpsters throughout the camp. They harassed some of the campers about having a tent in there camp they paid for, and about other campers walking there dog on a leash by the beach house and when some of the campers didn't have there dog on a leash at all. The restrooms could of been cleaned a little more often.
