Chaplin Nature Center reviews
We've been coming here for 20 years and keep coming back. Not just for the well maintained trails and clean, modern building, but to reconnect with Shawn the naturalist. We often hike to the river..... more »
Always a great time going out to Chaplin Nature Center and hiking on a few of the trails and sitting on the beach (aka. sandbar). more »
Who knew there was a beach in Kansas! This fairly secluded nature center offers a great setting to enjoy a few different ecosystems in as natural a condition as possible. The work done to reclaim what was once a working farm is amazing, if you didnt know it was one you would never believe it. There are about 6.5 miles of trails in the center and if you plan right you can walk all of them with very little overlap. A great deal of wildlife can be seen as well if you look hard enough. Not really a place for young children to roam freely but should be enjoyable nonetheless.
We had a great time here. The trails are in good shape and easy to see! Beautiful scenery, and great sand bar right on the river! Will definitely be back!
