State governors across the country have declared June as “Great Outdoors Month”! While we don’t need a declaration from the governor to celebrate the best of outdoor Kansas, it’s a good excuse to get out and enjoy the best of what the state has to offer. To celebrate, El Dorado State Park will host the “Governor’s Campout” on June 18th. There are some awesome events lined out for the day, including kayaking and canoeing, archery, natural history programs, horse rides, and even a fishing clinic! If that’s not enough, don’t forget the Boulder Bluff Trail, which crosses open expanses of prairie as it winds around the coves and inlets of the reservoir.
The party will continue into Saturday evening with more events, door prizes, Dutch Oven cooking and of course camping. If you’re interested in camping out as part of the event, make sure to contact Kati Westerhaus at 620-672-0740 or emailing Kati.firstname.lastname@example.org to pre-register.
