Wilson State Park is located on the south side of Wilson Reservoir. The park is divided into two areas: Hell Creek and Otoe. Primitive and utility camping sites are available, as well as several cabins with electricity and plumbing. There are also RV pads and dump stations in each area. Other activities that can be enjoyed at Wilson State Park are wildlife watching/photography, boating, fishing, horseshoes, biking, hiking, and swimming. Come to one of Kansas' premier recreation hot spots to fish, hike, water-ski, or just enjoy the outdoors. We also have one of the best mountain bike trails in the state.

This trail was worth the walk. There is not much shade but you are walking through a Kansas prairie so that is to be expected. There was lots of birds during the hike and lizards. The best part was the rock formation by the lake. We took some time and got in the lake and swam for a bit. Well worth the walk and the water was great. Totally worth the hike. Pretty easy hike. Took about 3 hours but we spend a good amount of time down at the water.

Very little shade, but overall good hike.

Fabulous Kansas trail. We didn't swim, but it does go by the clearest lake in the state, and I saw some folks fishing hip deep in the water. The sign at the top of the "Rocktown Trail" says it's almost 3 miles and takes two hours. Our mapping app said we went 2.6 miles at 2.2mph for 2 hours & 10minutes. That was a tough hike, or toughish, with the sun beating down in us in 87 degree heat.

Great trail for families with slightly older children. Not equipped for strollers or wagons. Not a lot of shade, but lots of wind. We hike this trail quite frequently. No issues with bugs or ticks if you stay on the trial. Well maintained, wide tail that is easy to follow. The rock formations near the lake are amazing and fun for everyone. Water is so high right now you can slip right in and enjoy the clean Wilson water.

An easy wide mower trail, that ends up at some cool sandstone formations.

This is an amazing trail, clean and well kept with beautiful lake views.

There's several mountain bike trails on the south side of the lake. Switchgrass, Hells Creek and Golden Belt. The trails have lots of switchbacks through the tall grass and next to the water. Not too technical, and few steep climbs. Beautiful oasis in the middle of Kansas, it's a perfect place to stop, stretch your legs and rest after driving along i70. You could spend a weekend here exploring the trails.

It was way too windy and the ground was charred from a fire, so my legs were black by the end of the walk. The limestone rock formations by the lake were beautiful.
