Outdoor Recreation Camping

The smell of sizzling bacon and coffee perking after a restful night under stars ... can make an evening of camping a complete weekend retreat.

There are nine campgrounds in and around Wakefield with picnic tables, shelters, restrooms, grills, and running water. Some have showers and electric hookups for travel trailers. All campsites are near Wakefield city services; restaurants, a grocery, laundry, and service stations.

Can't stay all night? Dine in the restaurant overlooking the lake or take a picnic to the Clay County Park. Anytime can become a Sunday afternoon.

Boating

Bring yours ... or rent a lake-ready rig from a marina on Milford Reservoir. A 16,000 acre lake, the Kansas sun and a gentle summer breeze make a winning combination for skiers, sailors, or canoers. Swimmers: take the plunge along a sand beach in one of Milford's many quiet coves.

Fishing

You don't have to be a natural fisherman to catch fish at Milford. Relax on the bank. Enjoy the satisfied feeling of bringing back a stringer of white bass.

Here's some of Kansas' best fishing; crappie, walleye, white bass, channel catfish, smallmouth, and large mouth bass. Milford has the fish, the Wakefield merchants have all the equipment you'll need to catch 'em.

Hunting

At dawn, only your footsteps break the stillness. You pause, looking and listening. With another step, the scene can change ... a covey of quail, or a ring-neck pheasant busts at your feet. This is the kind of hunting Kansas is famous for, in the area that made Kansas famous for hunting.

11,000 acres of public, hunting ground surround Wakefield. Ducks, pheasants, quail, geese, rabbits, deer and squirrels abound on the clearly-marked land. Licenses and stamps, shells and equipment, are available downtown.

If you're not a hunter, we suggest you take a nature walk through the game refuge just minutes from Wakefield.
