Discover Cheney State Park

If you're a water sports enthusiast searching for the perfect RV camping destination in Kansas, look no further than Cheney State Park. Located five miles north of Cheney in central Kansas, this 1,913-acre park sits right on the shores of the 6,800-acre Cheney Reservoir.

Situated at the southern end of the lake, Cheney State Park is divided into two separate zones — the East Shore area and the West Shore area. Famous for its excellent sailing conditions, the park is also a popular destination for fishing, boating, and hiking. And with hundreds of campsites to choose from in various campgrounds around the lake, Cheney State Park has a whole lot to offer to anyone planning their next relaxing camping getaway.

Getting Outdoors

When you're camping within a stone's throw of a huge, 6,800-acre lake, it's no surprise that Cheney State Park is a water sports lover's paradise. Of course, how you choose to make the most of the lake is entirely up to you.

For some visitors, that means rigging up a boat and going sailing. Thanks to its huge surface area and central Kansas' notoriously windy conditions, Cheney State Park has a well-earned reputation as a great sailing destination.

The West Shore area of the park, which is home to the Ninnescah Sailing Center, is the ideal spot for sailors to set up camp at Cheney State Park. But you don't need to participate to enjoy this sport — simply watching all the colors and excitement of a National Regatta on the lake is well worth it.

If sailing isn't your cup of tea, you might prefer to try your luck at some fishing. With six boat ramps offering up 22 boat launching lanes, Cheney State Park ensures that anglers can always enjoy easy access to the water. There's also a full-service marina and rental docks on the East Shore, and the lake's waters are home to walleye, channel catfish, white bass, crappie, and several other species.

Another easy way to enjoy this world-class reservoir is simply to get your feet (or maybe your whole body) wet. There are four dedicated swimming areas throughout Cheney State Park, three of them in the West Shore area, so make sure you don't forget your swimming trunks.

Camping at Cheney State Park

If you want to go RV camping at Cheney State Park, you're spoiled for choice with more than 600 campsites spread across several campgrounds. Rent an RV in Kingman County and then find the perfect spot to park your rig for a few nights or more.

The park boasts a total of:

  • 223 sites with water and electrical hookups
  • 400+ primitive campsites

These sites are spread around several different campgrounds in both the East Shore and West Shore areas of the park, with the facilities on offer varying from one campground to the next. As a result, it's essential that you study a campground map and research the amenities available before booking a site. However, if you're looking for a site with electricity and water, you'll find one at any of the following campgrounds: Heimerman Point, Lakeview, Marina, North Loop, Smarsh Creek, and South Loop.

Other facilities found in the camping areas include four RV dump stations, seven pit toilets, and nine restroom buildings with showers. Pets are also welcome on the campsites, so it's quite easy to visit Cheney State Park with your furry friend. However, you'll need to clean up after your pet and ensure they're leashed and supervised at all times.

Finally, there are also 12 cabins available for rent if you're traveling with friends or family who don't plan on camping in an RV.

Exploring the Area

When your Cheney State Park camping getaway is over and you're ready to hit the road again, you'll be happy to hear that there are lots of other great attractions to check out in the surrounding area.

For example, if you head north to Hutchinson, the Strataca Salt Mine Museum offers a fascinating underground adventure. Hop aboard the Salt Mine Express and learn all about the history of this well-preserved mine from an experienced tour guide.

If you'd rather lose yourself in another excellent Kansas state park, Kanopolis State Park is roughly an hour and a half to the north and offers an excellent 30-mile multi-use trail system for hikers and horseback riders.

Of course, if you want to head for a major center, Wichita is just over half an hour to the east. When you get there, be sure to treat yourself to a day out at the Museum of World Treasures. You'll find an array of eclectic artifacts on display here, from prehistoric fossils to WWII memorabilia.

There's a little something to suit everyone in central Kansas, so rent an RV near Cheney State Park and start planning your next camping adventure.
