The Cross Timbers State Park is a state park and recreation area in Toronto, Kansas. It is located within the Verdigris River Valley. The park got its name from the region where it is located. Early pioneers used to refer to the site as such.

Composed of 1075 acres, the Cross Timbers State Park mainly provides access to the 2800-acre Toronto Reservoir. However, fishing is mostly done on the river, where anglers can catch white bass, channel fish, black bass, sunfish, flathead catfish, and white crappie among others.

The Cross Timbers State Park traces its roots back to the days when it was still used a hunting and camping site by the Osage Nation. The site is quite well preserved as it is still home to a very diverse flora and fauna.
