On our way there we discovered Kanopolis Dam, another state park that we stop at on the way home.
We turn down a dirt road, legit dirt road leading to a STATE park... it was clear the parks and rec department of Kansas is not as advanced as Minnesota State Parks.
We arrived! LOL It was pretty weak, but still a fun adventure.
There was one other car there when we arrived but they left shortly after we got there. It was pretty chilly so our plan to have a picnic was replaced with lunch in the van, haha. Kyle and I were on our LAST day of the reset so we packed our food and the kids sandwiches as well.
THIS is Mushroom rock:
There were lots of other cool rocks to look at, not many you're seeing them all in these photos.
We even captured a GREAT family photo :-D
Thankful they had a bathroom, it was a permanent port-a-potty but I'm so glad it was open!
We headed back home and stopped at Kanopolis State Park along the way. Did a little drive around first and spotted a dear, a bunch of turkey's, a bald eagle, and some real country living quarters.
They had a playground we stopped at, which the kids loved and desperately needed. Kyle and I sat in the van we were so cold, the kids ran and played. There were restrooms here but they were all closed due to COVID-19 according to the signs :-( We had to stop to get gas on the way home and hit the restroom before the hour drive.
It was a nice change in being stuck in the house, just wish the weather was a little better for us.
