Discover Lake Scott State Park

Recognized as one of the best state parks anywhere in the United States, Lake Scott State Park combines fascinating history with impressive natural beauty and a wide range of recreational activities. Located 15 miles north of Scott City in the western Kansas prairie, this 1,020-acre park and the nearby area are home to more than 25 archeological sites.

The park also boasts a 100-acre lake and a 160-acre wildlife area, so boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, and wildlife watching can all be enjoyed here. Best of all, Lake Scott State Park also features multiple campgrounds and sites to suit all types of campers, so it's a great spot to park your rig while you explore your spectacular surrounds.

Let's take a closer look at some of the main attractions and activities in Lake Scott State Park and how you can make the most of your stay.

Getting Outdoors

Before you start enjoying the many outdoor activities on offer in Lake Scott State Park, it's a good idea to begin your visit by taking in some of the area's fascinating history. The park is the site of El Cuartelejo, the northernmost Native American pueblo ever to be found and which is also recognized as a National Historic Landmark. It also boasts reminders of more recent history, with the Steele Homestead, the dwelling used by the original white settlers in the area, perfectly preserved and now operating as a museum.

Once you've had your fill of history, it's time to get out and explore the great outdoors. If you're a keen angler, you'll no doubt want to try your luck fishing in the spring-fed Scott State Fishing Lake. Trout, crappie, saugeye, walleye, channel catfish, and more can all be caught here, so don't forget to pack your rod in the camper rental.

If the summer heat gets too much, you can always head to the park's swimming beach to cool off. This is quite a popular spot at the height of summer, and there's a concession stand nearby where you can stock up on camping supplies and other essentials. Canoe and paddleboard rentals are also available during peak periods if you'd like to enjoy a relaxing paddle around the lake.

The other major activity in the park is hiking, which is a particular favorite with wildlife lovers. The loop trail that leads around the lake is well worth checking out, offering beautiful water views as well as a chance to catch a glimpse of a wide range of native wildlife. From beavers and bobcats to deer and turkeys, many different creatures that call this area home, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled.

Camping at Lake Scott State Park

If you want to camp with an RV in Lake Scott State Park, book a motorhome in Scott County and then reserve yourself a site in one of the park's several campgrounds. There are more than 120 reservable sites to choose from, including:

  • 7 full-hookup sites
  • 50 sites with water and electrical hookups
  • 80 primitive sites

However, the facilities available vary depending on the campground you choose to stay in, so it's worth studying a park map and campground descriptions before reserving your spot. That said, if you're looking for a utility campsite, check out either the Circle Drive Campground or the Lake View Campground.

Two cabins are also available for rent within the park. Pets aren't allowed in the cabins, but they are permitted on the campsites. You'll just need to make sure to dispose of your pet's waste and keep them on a leash at all times.

Exploring the Area

When you're ready to bring your Lake Scott State Park RV camping adventure to an end, there's no need to head straight home. With lots of other interesting attractions and destinations nearby, it's well worth extending your journey for a few days or more.

For example, if you'd like to spend some time exploring another of Kansas' state parks, you'll find Cedar Bluff State Park roughly an hour and a half to the east. With hundreds of campsites to suit all manner of motorhomes, this is an excellent place to extend your RV camping trip.

If you decide to head south to Garden City, you'll probably want to check out the Lee Richardson Zoo or take the kids to the local waterpark. History buffs might want to uncover some local history at the Finney County Historical Society, while the bison reserve will be a hit with nature lovers.

And if you decide to head north to Oakley, the Fick Fossil & History Museum will delight any history enthusiast keen to see dinosaur fossils unearthed right here in Kansas.

Whichever direction you head and whatever sort of vacation you want, you'll find plenty to enjoy in this corner of Kansas. Why not rent a camper near Lake Scott State Park and make the most of it?
