Clinton State Park

Clinton State Park is a state park of Kansas. The park is located four miles west of Lawrence in Douglas County. It is the home of the Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival.


The 1,500 acre park lies on the north shore of Clinton Lake, known for its clear water and good fishing of channel catfish, walleye, and crappie fishing.

Visitors to the park can enjoy viewing white-tailed deer, wild turkey, waterfowl, bald eagles in spring and fall, and numerous species of songbirds in the carefully managed habitats that make Clinton a distinctive outdoor destination.

An extensive hiking/biking trail system make this park and adjacent 9,200-acre wildlife area an attractive destination for outdoors enthusiasts including hikers, nature photographers, mountain bicyclists, wildflower enthusiasts, wildlife observers, and even cross-country skiers. Park staff work closely with Lawrence and University of Kansas individuals and organizations to present several concerts and other special events each year such as the Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival.
