Elk City State Park
Elk City State Park offers a quiet, family-oriented get-away. The compact park allows easy, quick access to features, including boat ramps, a swim beach, camping, playgrounds, and hiking trails. The lake area offers picturesque views ranging from open prairie to wooded hills and limestone bluffs. During the winter months (November-April), a paved path is accessible for pedestrians to enjoy the prairie's scenery (during other months it is open to vehicles and dangerous to pedestrians). The park connects with the Osage Low land Hiking Trail which has a tightly packed surface and is accessible to visitors all year long. The park also offers two ADA-compliant docks and is currently restoring an ADA fishing dock (stay tuned for this spring). A beautiful overlook of the scenic landscape can also be reached just outside of the state park.
Camping is also available with their paved campgrounds and ADA-compliant cabins that must be reserved in advance.
