Wilson Lake Included in Saturday Promotion

Wilson LakeWilson Lake will once again be included in the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism "Spring into Summer" promotion this Saturday, March 29.

KDWPT invites outdoor enthusiasts to get out of the house and get ready for summer with a free entrance day and open houses at all Kansas state parks on Saturday.

Wilson Lake will have the cabins open from 8 AM to 4:30 PM and offer cabin tours from 9 AM to noon. Refreshments will also be served.

During "Spring into Summer," park goers can take advantage of low off-season camping permit prices. March 31 is the last day annual camping permits are priced at off-season discounts. On April 1, the prices increase to their regular prime-season levels. Visitors can purchase annual camping permits and make cabin or campsite reservations during the open houses as well. For pricing information and to purchase permits online, go to the KDWPT website, ksoutdoors.com. For online permit purchases, click License/Permits. For campsite and cabin reservations, click Reservations.

Kansas motor vehicle owners can now buy an annual park vehicle permit as part of their vehicle registration process. The permit - called a Kansas State Parks Passport - costs $15 plus a 50 cent service fee to the county treasurer. This lower-price, non-transferable permit is available only during the vehicle registration process at a motor vehicle registration office, through the online vehicle registration site (www.kswebtags.org), or when registering by mail. The Kansas State Parks Passport will expire when the vehicle registration expires a year later.
