To experience the wild outdoors while experiencing the scenic natural beauty of the Kansas lakeside, you have to go to the Lake Scott State Park in Scott County, Kansas. This 1,280-acre state park was founded in 1928 from a land donation by Herbert Steele and family. The park includes the spring-fed Scott Lake and the surrounding forests and grasslands.

Lake Scott State Park is located at the former ruins of Taos Pueblo, a Native American settlement that was populated during the 1660s. The Taos Indians built their pueblo known as El Cuartelejo beside the lake.

The park attracts an average of 150,000 visitors yearly. It is open year round to visitors. Guests can enjoy the beautiful outdoors via recreational activities such as camping, biking, fishing, boating, hiking, picnicking, and nature watching. Hunting is allowed but restricted.
