5 GLEN ELDER STATE PARK, KANSAS
Bring a wide-brimmed hat and sunscreen, because you won't find a shade tree at Glen Elder. What you will discover is the vast Kansas prairie, 12,500-acre Waconda Lake, and a long list of opportunities. Walleyes, white bass, stripers, smallmouths, crappies, and catfish are on the list. In the fall, you can add pheasants, doves, whitetails, and water-fowl to the mix.
