There’s certainly no shortage of remote places in Kansas. We’re well-known for our peaceful middle-of-nowhere towns, trails, and obscure attractions. Scott City is just one of these off-the-beaten path towns. This small community has a teeny population of just under 4,000; you’d have to drive nearly four hours to reach the closest city with more than 75,000 people in it! Scott City is best known as the home of Lake Scott State Park, which is certainly one of the most beautiful state parks in the Sunflower State. But the park also shares its name with an absolutely stunning lake. In fact, this incredibly peaceful body of water is also one of the most remote lakes in Kansas, but fortunately for us, is a spectacular spot for a day out near the water.

Lake Scott is definitely one of the quietest lakes in Kansas, which makes this secluded beauty even more worth checking out this season! For more information about additional amenities and seasonal hours at Lake Scott State Park, check out the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks.
