Cedar Bluff State Park

United States


Brochure InfoConstruction of Cedar Bluff Reservoir began in April of 1949 with the intention of providing flood control, irrigation and recreational opportunities. The reservoir was completed in 1951 and filled that same year. This Bureau of Reclamation owned reservoir, which is managed by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, quickly became a popular destination. The reservoir and surrounding public lands provided many opportunities which previously had been non-existant to this region. In 1962, Cedar Bluff State Park was developed to accommodate the public by providing outdoor recreational facilities and improved opportunities. Cedar Bluff State Park continues to thrive today, annual visitation is consistently over the 250,000 mark. Cedar Bluff State Park is divided into two, unique areas along the shorelines of Cedar Bluff Reservoir. The Bluffton Area on the north shore provides nearly 350 acres for visitors and provides a variety of facilities to meet the outdoor enthusiasts needs. The Bluffton Area includes: two boat ramp facilities, fish cleaning station, 97 two utility campsites to include a reservable group campground, and 22 three utility campsites; two community shelters, three playgrounds including one electronic interactive game, three showerhouses, two trailer dumpstations, six rental cabins and numerous undesignated primitive campsites and picnic areas. Be sure to enjoy some of the additional amenities and opportunities which include sand volleyball, horseshoes, archery range, shore-side basketball, bicycling on our BMX track or relaxing at the designated beach area. Fishing can also be fantastic from the park's shores. The Bluffton Area includes a covered, handicap accessible fishing dock along with a youth and disabled fishing pond. The Page Creek Area, on the south shore of the reservoir, is nearly 500 acres in size. It is not quite as developed but provides some of the finest primitive camping in the state with it's large shade trees and sandy shorelines.
