Where can I go camping around Lawrence?
East Kansas has lots of great places to go and enjoy the great outdoors. There are a number of state parks like Clinton Lake, and Perry Lake, and Douglas County parks like Lonestar that are only a few miles from Lawrence. To get more information about the hours and facilities of Kansas State Parks go to http://www.kdwpt.state.ks.us/news/State-Parks/Locations.
You can also contact Outdoor Pursuits through the office of Recreation Services at (785) 864-3546. They are a great source of information about camping, hiking, bike trails, and more. Plus they rent camping gear at very reasonable prices; check out their website at www.recreation.ku.edu.
