Less than a quarter of a mile west of Glen
Elder, and situated on the north shores of Waconda Lake, Glen Elder State Park
offers nearly unlimited recreational opportunities. With its rural setting,
this is a perfect place to relax. The Park Office is located about a quarter
mile south of the HWY 24 & 128 junction. (Approximately 15 miles west of
Beloit, KS or 5 miles east of Cawker City, KS.)
The office is OPEN throughout
the year, Monday through Friday, 8am to 4:30pm. Hours extend to seven days a
week, 8am to 4:30pm, beginning April 16th through Labor Day weekend. Between
Memorial weekend and July 4th, the office will be open from 8am to 8pm on
Friday and Saturdays.
