Lakes & Rivers

Getting out and exploring aquatic activities across the state is fun for all ages. Kansas' lakes, reservoirs, and rivers can provide hours of fun and relief from hot, summer days. Some activities, such as canoeing and kayaking, can also be enjoyed during the off-season months. Find stocked fishing lakes—both urban and rural—alongside state lakes, state parks, and wetlands. See bird species you would never think to look for, find wildlife not thought of in Kansas, and explore landscapes such as chalk rocks, limestone, and prairie. Lakes in Kansas provide locations to boat, camp, fish, and enjoy water sports of all types.
