Tuttle Creek Lake, KS

US Army Corps of Engineers

Overview

Situated in the scenic Flint Hills, Tuttle Creek Lake provides 12,500 surface acres of water and 100 miles of shoreline, making it the second largest lake in Kansas.

Many sites around the lake have been developed to enhance your enjoyment of fishing, boating, camping, picnicking, and outdoor sports. Eleven parks (six managed by the Corps of Engineers, four by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, and one by Pottawatomie County) offer a wide range of facilities such as overnight camping pads, utility hookups, beaches, comfort stations, boat ramps, and picnic shelters. Also available for lake visitors are a full service marina, nature trails, hiking, equestrian, and off road vehicle trails, and a shooting range.

Additionally, over 16,000 acres of land surrounding the lake have been enhanced to benefit wildlife, providing excellent hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities. Konza Prairie, Kansas State University, Fort Riley, and the Prairie Parkway are among the nearby attractions.
