Scott Lake received some nice publicity over the weekend in the form of a feature article in USA Today. Katie Eisenhour, Director of Scott City Tourism and Economic Development, says the article was a “win-win” for everyone.
The USA travel piece focused on 51 great beaches to visit this summer and Scott Lake was cited as a ‘surprise package amidst the vast plains and farmland of western Kansas.’
Located approximately 10-miles from Scott City, Scott Lake State Park is a little over 1-thousand acres big, with hiking and biking trails and a lakeside beach popular with swimmers. The area also has a campground and cabin rentals are available but fill up fast in the summer. Fishing and paddle boats are also available. Wild turkey, deer, bobcat and beaver are common in the area. A horse camp area provides amenities for equestrian visitors.
