Kansas Wildlife Areas Camping Info

KDWPT offers this general information about camping on Kansas Wildlife Areas:

Wildlife areas are managed specifically for wildlife and hunting opportunities, so camping is limited. Many wildlife areas are located near state parks, where excellent camping facilities are available. Some remote wildlife areas offer primitive camping in designated areas, but it's a good idea to check with the area Wildlife and Parks office for more specific camping information.

Also, if camping in a wildlife area (especially if dispersed camping), be particularly cognizant of Kansas Hunting Seasons (see KDWPT Calendar) – do not put yourself at risk by camping where people might be shooting guns!
