7 Stunning Kansas State Parks Where You Can Camp All Year-Round
Barring a bad thunderstorm or ice-over, camping is something you can do in any weather, even if you have to opt for a cabin or yurt over a tent. If you’ve ever wanted a place to camp year-round, these beautiful Kansas state parks are the perfect places to start. Pick your favorite time of year or anytime you want to get away, and set up camp!
1. Kanopolis State Park
Though you can pitch a tent at this gorgeous park with red rock and caves to explore, the best way to enjoy it even when the weather isn't great is to use the year-round cabins they have on site. They even sleep multiple people, so you're not all crammed into a small space. Plus, trails with caves are hard to pass up.
2. Fall River State Park
Though we do love this park the most during the fall, it's still a great place to visit all year round, even for camping. They also have trails to explore and fish to be caught, if camping isn't your favorite part of the outdoors.
3. El Dorado State Park
El Dorado is an underrated location, mostly due to other, larger parks being more popular. However, their scenery is just as beautiful and their campsites and cabins are just as cozy as others.
4. Eisenhower State Park
Not only does this gorgeous park have excellent trails to explore, but their choice of camping, cabins, and yurts makes them another great spot for a nature trip no matter the season.
5. Cross Timbers State Park
Cross Timbers is absolutely beautiful in any season where their trees have leaves, but during the winter, the lake and sky are the sources of its beauty. Through the whole year, you can enjoy a woodland adventure near the relaxing Kansas forest.
6. Crawford State Park
Crawford is yet another beautiful state park in Kansas that sometimes doesn't get enough limelight. Their beautiful scenery is viewed best from in front of your campsite.
7. Clinton State Park
Clinton is our last (but not least) beautiful location for year-round camping, with their cabins, camping areas, heated showers, and year-round bathroom access. Plus, just look at the view!
