TOPEKA, Kan., April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With more than 90 cabins and hundreds of campsites in 24 major reservoirs, 19 state parks and 40 state lakes, visitors will find abundant opportunities for relaxing outdoor experiences in Kansas. The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWP) Kansas Wildlife, Parks & Tourism is announcing that campsite and cabin reservations are now available online http://kdwpt.state.ks.us/news/State-Parks/Reservations

From rustic accommodations to cabins boasting all the comforts of home, there's something for everyone.  Kansas state parks are open year-round for overnight camping, RVing or just catching a nap in a cabin.

The availability of state cabin rentals at various state parks, fishing lakes and wildlife areas is one of Kansas' best-kept secrets. They are equipped with many of the comforts of home – including heating and air-conditioning.  Modern cabins range in style and design. Basic sleeper cabins are more rustic with minimal amenities.  Deluxe cabins feature full kitchens with dishes, pots & pans, microwaves, stoves, refrigerators, table and chairs.  Deluxe cabins also have separate bedrooms with showers.  Besides food and beverage, the only thing visitors need to bring is bedding, pillows and toiletries. 

Cabins are designed to encourage reconnection with nature and family/friends – no internet, phones or TV's available. Cabins are ideal for family vacations offering space and affordability.  Most cabins sleep 4 – 10 adults. They offer a great option for enjoying outdoor Kansas anytime of the year.

Campsites range from "primitive" tent sites to utility sites for RVs, and everything in between. The number of campsites available for reservation will vary by park – in most parks about half of the sites can be reserved. The rest will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Shelter and group campground reservations can be made through the park office where the facilities are located. When camping is allowed at a state fishing lake or wildlife area , sites are available only on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved.

Regular state park access fees apply to all rentals.
