MILFORD LAKE, KANSAS

15 minutes Northwest of Junction City, Kansas

Milford State Park is located on the southeast shore of the state's largest lake, 15,709 surface-acre Milford Reservoir, Milford State Park is a favorite getaway for outdoors loving visitors. It is a popular destination for anglers eager for walleye, crappie, large mouth bass, white bass, catfish, and small mouth bass.

There are many opportunities to observe or photograph wildlife on the 19,000-acre wildlife area located on the west side and upper end of the reservoir. The Steve Lloyd refuge contains an additional 1100 acres. The diverse habitats support many species of non game birds, mammals, reptiles and aquatic life. Nearby Milford Nature Center and Milford Fish Hatchery (both are located below the dam) offer a variety of interpretive exhibits and displays. The lake hosts a large influx of bald eagles in the winter.
