Knob Noster State Park
Knob Noster State Park is a tranquil idyllic oasis mixture of prairie, open woodland and forest along both sides of a meandering creek. It’s a place for fishermen to wet a line, for mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders to get some trail time, and for families to spend quality time together.
Great State park. Well kept and campsites are well separated and lots of shade. A small lake is nearby with great hikes. There are great groups sites as well. I thought the nearby base would be a draw back, but while we were there we never heard the planes. Were there on a Friday night through Saturday. The campsite only has a store in the check in station, but still had ice, wood and treats as well as other necessities. So excited to find a great park nearby for overnight or long stays. The shower and bathrooms are brand new!
This place has tons of fishing locations, biking/hiking trails, camping locations, lakes, and a lot of wild life to see! hiking trails range from 1.5 to 5.5 miles from what i saw there. This place is great to bring your family for fishing or the playgrounds. Dog owners can also have their dogs however they must be leashed. I would also recommend bug spray and a bag of supplies if you are hiking the longer trails around the park.
Some of the richest colors I’ve seen! Insanely beautiful forest, water, and buildings. I didn’t have much time to check it out (passing by to the State Fair), but I was very impressed with what I DID experience! I definitely will return!
This state park has been the site of a fall tradition for my Scout Troop and I for many years. Comfortable. Secluded. Accessible.
We love this place!! It is so peaceful. We love to go there and walk the trails. We also walk to the lake and have family BBQs there. Also sometimes just a picnic for just the two of us..Great place to go!!
