Meade State Lake and Park

Meade Lake West  

The Meade State lake and park is located twelve miles southwest of Meade on Highway K23.

The first state lake in Kansas, Meade Lake is an oasis in the agricultural lands of Southwest Kansas. The Lake Park is 443 acres and provides visitors with fishing, camping and swimming. Boating is restricted to fishing boats, and campers can enjoy electrical hookups, a dumping station, bathhouses and a beach.

Wildlife enthusiasts will find the lake area a wonderful observation ground. The wildlife preserve west of the lake provides great hiking and exploring as well as a nature trail.

Considered by many the top spot in the central United States for bird watching, the lake area is inhabited by over 300 species.

From April 15 to October 15, Meade State park is open to accommodate campers, fishermen and park users. Vehicle and camping permits are available at the park office along with fishing licenses, hunting licenses, and 30-day boating permits.
