Kansas: Milford State Park

Located near Junction City on the shores of the state's largest lake, 16,000-acre Milford Reservoir, Milford State Park is a favorite getaway for outdoors loving visitors. Park facilities include modern campgrounds, shower buildings, toilets, swimming beaches, boat ramps, picnic shelters, a full-service marina, and a multi-purpose trails system. The park also houses a large yacht club.

Nearby Milford Nature Center and Milford Fish Hatchery offer a variety of interpretive exhibits and displays.

The park comprises five campgrounds with 120 electric/ water utility sites. Thirty of these sites also include sewer hookups. More than 100 improved primitive campsites are also available throughout the park.

The state park is a popular destination for anglers eager to experience the excellent fishing available in Milford Reservoir. Walleye concentrate along the face of the dam in early April to spawn, then move to the flats at Farnum Creek and mud points near School Creek. Nearly all of the brushy and rocky coves contain crappie and largemouth bass, but coves in the Rolling Hills and Curtis Creek areas are traditional hot spots for crappie. White bass and catfish are plentiful in a variety of locations, and smallmouth bass frequent the face of the dam, as well as rocky points in the lower half of the lake.

Many game species are present on the 18,800-acre Milford Wildlife Area, and a permanent 1,100-acre wildlife refuge has been established on the northern end of the reservoir for waterfowl management.

NEW EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES UNDER DEVELOPMENT AT MILFORD STATE PARK

Horse-friendly facilities join growing list of recreational opportunities

MILFORD STATE PARK – Last fall, Milford State Park staff began construction of a 21-site equestrian campground, using a National Recreational Trails grant. Ten of those sites have been completed; the remainder are under construction.

The campground sites are equipped with electricity, water, and sewer utilities, as well as a modern toilet, tables, grills, fire pits, hitching posts, roofed corrals, and a horse bay wash station. A shelter house is planned for the future.

The area has been a popular destination for horse enthusiasts and campers alike. When completed, the campground will provide riding access to a 20-mile-long trail system that traverses Milford State Park, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recreation area, and trails managed by the City of Junction City.
