Home to nine scenic byways, traveling to RV parks in Kansas is more beautiful than ever before. You may be surprised that there's a byway named the Wetlands and Wildlife Scenic Byway that zig-zags north and south and follows a busy migratory bird flyway.

With 24 major reservoirs and 40 state fishing lakes ranging from 50 to 300 acres, never be far away from your rod and reel when visiting RV parks in Kansas.

Or attend the annual festival in the "Spinach Capital of the World" in Lenexa, where the world's largest spinach salad is tossed with pitchforks in a plastic pool.
Fine arts can be found throughout the state and to help the visitor discover all the best, the State of Kansas has created the Artisan Trail Ready-Made Adventure consisting of a dozen cities known for popular galleries and cultural centers. Most of these are located near Interstate 70.
