Monument Rocks has been recognized for years as a scenic attraction. These monolithic chalk formations rise out of the prairie like sentinels. Visitors have compared them to Stonehenge and geologically their age is similar to the White Cliffs of Dover, England. This section gives visitors a brief view of what they can expect and helpful hints for visiting this area.
Lake Scott State Park is a dazzling “oasis” hidden on the plains and the first state park designated in the state of Kansas. Within its confines resides El Cuartelejo, the remains of the northeasternmost Indian pueblo in the United States. We have a cabin at the lake available for rent. It has a spectacular canyon view from the back porch and is easy walking distance to the lake.
