Overview

Overview

Slough Creek Campground is situated on Perry Lake in the lush Kansas forest. As the largest and most popular recreation area at the lake, Slough Creek is an ideal destination for family camping trips.

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.

For hikers, the 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. The Slough Creek trailhead for the Perry Lake Trail is located on-site.

Facilities:

Slough Creek Campground offers 265 reservable spacious campsites, ranging from walk-in tent sites to full electric and water hookup sites.

Two large reservable group campsites make the area ideal for large parties or family functions.
