Clinton State Park is a 1,400 acre island of unspoiled nature amid the suburban sprawl of northeast Kansas.
You can move as fast and as far as you like along a storied 30-mile hiking and biking trail. On the sprawling reservoir you can run a speed boat full-out, catch delicious crappie or teach a child to skip stones across a mirrored surface in a peaceful cove.
From your campsite at night you can listen to a choir of singing coyotes, cricket frogs and so many creatures unknown. When you look up, there are stars for as high as your eyes can see.
