Girl Scouts can camp free at Kansas State Parks

Girl Scouts now have access to basic camping sites at all 26 Kansas State Parks, thanks to a partnership between the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.

The Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland Council is paying for its members’ access to basic/primitive campsites at Kansas State Parks — a great option for camp-outs or other activities packed with fun enjoying the outdoors!

Reservation requests MUST be made through the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland Council to take advantage of these wonderful camping options across the state.

“We’re excited about this partnership with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, because this means Girl Scouts from 80 Kansas counties have many more options for camping across the state,” said Jerry Primm, director of property for the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland.

The cabins at state parks, or premium amenities, would still have a cost attached, but the primitive campsites at Kansas State Parks offer picnic tables, fire rings and grills, along with access to shower houses and public, potable water facilities.

By completing a park service project directed by a Kansas State Park Ranger, Girl Scout troops even have the option of waiving vehicle permit fees at Kansas State Parks! Click on the map for complete details, including the reservation form.
