  • Kill Creek Park in De Soto, KS is a lovely park with a variety of recreational opportunities. The main feature is the lake which has a fishing pier, a marina and a beach! A bike trail runs through.....  more »
  • Great park with space, Pavillions, fishing ponds and playgrounds. We like to kill some time hiking at kill creek.  more »
  • Really nice place. Always enjoy bringing the family out. Bathrooms are normally in order and well taken care of. Parks for children, pay to swim beach, and plenty of fishing space. You will need a state park license in order to legally fish here. Marina where you can launch canoes and kayaks. Trails worth walking and biking. Places to grill(charcoal) and spots to reserve for party occasions or quick little picnics.
  • Tons of trails! We were mostly on the unpaved trails, but there seemed to be a good sized paved trail too. Good elevation change in certain parts, with a lot of interesting fungi. Wear long pants and long sleeves to protect from plants and insects, and be ready to get a little muddy if it has rained recently.
