One of the top state parks in America based on fishing, boating and family fun, El Dorado State Park is conveniently located at the edge of the Flint Hills near three state highways and an interstate (the Kansas Turnpike). With about 2,000 acres of park and 4,000 acres of wildlife area surrounding 8,000 acres of water with 98 miles of shoreline, there are plenty of opportunities to explore this premier lake destination.
A variety of trails are available in the State Park - hiking trails, biking trails and horse trails which include hitching posts on the shoreline and campsites with corrals and other equestrian amenities. Steep, rocky shorelines, old river channels, submerged railroad beds and dead standing timber beckon a variety of sportfish popular in Kansas along with the anglers that seek them. Wildlife enthusiasts can see a wide range of small mammals, white-tailed deer, songbirds, game birds and waterfowl.
El Dorado Reservoir is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
