Within the nine counties comprising Region 05 of the State of Kansas Outdoor Recreation Planning Program, there are 14 private campgrounds with 25 total improved campsites and the remainder primitive in nature.
Comparable historic sites are Fort Hays, 60 miles north, and Fort Scott Historic Area, over 250 miles to the southeast near the corner of the state.
