Overview

Overview

Rock Creek Campground is situated on the south end of Perry Lake in the lush Kansas forest.

Natural Features:

Perry Lake Dam was completed in 1966 to help with flood control for the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. Today, the lake boasts 160 miles of shoreline and 11,150 surface acres of water, creating countless recreational activities for visitors, and earning it the nickname "paradise on the plains."

The campground is surrounded by the lake on one side and a dense canopy of forest on the other, making it ideal for those wishing to enjoy the best of both environments.

Recreation:

Perry lake has a reputation for being one of the best sailing lakes in the region; however, boaters of all types will enjoy the many opportunities offered here, whether it's sailing, power boating or canoeing.

Perry Lake offers excellent fishing: White crappie, flathead catfish, walleye, white bass, channel catfish and sauger are in abundance throughout the lake.

In addition to the vast lake, the area has approximately 21,600 acres of public land dedicated to wildlife management: turkey, deer, quail, pheasant, rabbit, squirrel, duck and geese are all found on these federal lands.

A scenic road follows the shoreline along the length of the campground, offering sweeping views of the lake.

Facilities:

Rock Creek Campground offers 141 spacious campsites. Primitive camping is offered at walk-up campsites along the peninsula.

A large group picnic shelter and playground make the area ideal for large parties or family functions.

Nearby Attractions:

For hikers, the nearby 29-mile Perry Lake loop trail offers a range of terrain and difficulty from easy, gentle slopes in the south to rugged, varying elevation changes in the north.
