  • Beautiful landscape, well maintained, most visitors are really good about picking up after themselves. Great place for a family outing. Just check the local updates about alge & other outdoor concerns.
  • I have lived in Topeka for 10 years. Lake Shawnee is always a pleasant place to go and get away from the feel of City Life. The flower garden is gorgeous everyone should experience it at least once, I go there frequently. There is a 7 Mile plus walking, jogging, exercise trail all the way around the lake. It's a beautiful way to enjoy being fit. Sometimes it's nice just to take a short stroll back and forth cross the dam around sunrise or sunset. Campgrounds are always well organized. I believe they have bathrooms and showers at theirs. I'm not a fisherman personally but I always see people down at the fishing areas when I cruise my trike around.
