Scott State Park
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.
So much moss it's hard to fish. And alot of trash. Wish I could say that Kansans cared about our parks but we dont. If we all filled a grocery sack with trash we could keep our places cleaner. The views are beautiful tho. The bluffs and Steele house is always neat. Many deer and baby turkeys in the summer.
Always a neat place to hangout. Needs fire rings at trailer camp grounds.
Weekdays are quiet, I get a feeling the park gets really busy on the weekend. Beach area has some activities. There are also some sites in the area to see. Monument Rocks and Battle Canyon.
Such a nice lake. Our family loves coming here. A true oasis in Western Kansas.
AWESOME place very have always enjoyed it all of my life I was raised up in Colby ks
