Recreational opportunities at Great Salt Plains State Park include boating, camping, picnicking, swimming, hiking, mountain biking and exploring. The Great Salt Plains Lake is located at the park and covers 8,690 surface acres with 41 miles of shoreline and is a shallow, salty lake with fishing opportunities for catfish, saugeye, sandbass and hybrid striper. Personal watercraft are not recommended. The park has RV and tent sites, comfort stations with showers, cabins, picnic sites, group shelters, swimming beach, playgrounds, boat ramps, fishing dock and equestrian trails. Horse rental is not available. The Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge sits adjacent to the park and offers great bird watching and fall foliage viewing opportunities. The refuge is the only spot in the world where crystal enthusiasts can dig for hourglass selenite crystals, a rare and fragile form of selenite, which is a form of gypsum. Digging times are available from April 1 through October 15. **Notice** Selenite crystal digging at the Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge resumed on April 25, 2009.

November 16 by j & n

April 26 Cabins are fun!
Very clean. Linens are provided which was nice. Well stocked, even had a flat screen TV w/ Dish Network for when it got rainy
March 13 Kids Favorite Park by jolynn
Our kids (and the adults) could dig for crystals all day long! It was so much fun!
December 24 Great Place by Eddie
Stayed here a couple of nights in the winter, cold and snowing, so having easy sites to set up in was nice. The staff was very friendly and the place overall was very clean and relaxing. Good water pressure, elect. hook up in good condition and the bathrooms very clean. Makes us want to return in the summer.
