“Out of nowhere. ”

Overall Rating

So you're driving towards colorado through middle Kansas and your mind is racked with boredom, the horizon stretches forever and the road doesn't curve. Your heart rhythm is nearly flatlined. Then, out of nowhere, you see a sign for this park. You drive 10ish miles north of Hwy 70 and a hidden oasis appears.
Wilson Reservoir glitters in the sunlight as you approach and you see folks paddling, boating, and water skiing. Hills (called the Smoky hills) abound. Rock formations jut from the earth.
You find your lovely non-level RV spot and then scout the area's trails. You find the Sweetgrass IMBA EPIC mountain biking trail is here! Truly shocking.
The bath and shower house will not be remembered. But you will remember the big hill you had to climb to get to it. No matter, you will happily sip Freestate Brewery IPA from the growler you filled in Lawrence KS on the way out while admiring the hidden beauty around you.
