This One Destination Has The Absolute Bluest Water In Kansas
When it comes to outdoor recreation, we as Kansans are truly lucky; from world-renowned state parks to unique grasslands to gorgeous hiking spots, the Sunflower State has it all. However, when it comes to pristine, clear, and blue waters, there is truly no topping Sylvan Grove’s beautiful Wilson Lake:
Located along the picturesque Post Rock Scenic Byway, Wilson Lake State Park features a 8,069-acre public hunting area; 5,000-acres of native grass prairie; and the popular 9,000-acre Wilson Reservoir, which is home to the aforementioned blue waters.
What makes Wilson Lake's waters more notable than, say, the clear waters of the lovely Lake Wabaunsee, Banner Creek, or Lake Quivira? In short, it's the dramatic cliffs...
...and abundant recreation opportunities in or around the water.
Fun fact: There are a whopping 100-miles of shore that surround Wilson!
How does the 9,000-acre reservoir stay so clean and blue? The answer is thanks in part to an all-natural grassland drainage system that works as a 1,000+ acre filter!
When you visit, make sure to check out not just the lake, but the surrounding area as well, which features amazing wildlife sightings, trails, limestone structures, and so much more.
