Directions:
From I-70 take the Wamego exit #328 north on K-99 for approximately 9.5 miles. Cross the bridge into Wamego and turn left (west) on Valley Street, the first road before you enter Wamego’s business district. Go 1 block on Valley to the giant silo and turn left on Elm St. At the end of Elm is the entrance to the access park.

Wamego access is also easily accessible from U.S.24 by turning south on K-99 to Valley Street on the south edge of Wamego. Access is under the north end of the K-99 Bridge on the south end of town.

Access Info:
The ramp area has room for 4-5 vehicles to load and unload boats, 5 parking stalls and one longish pull-through for trailers (2 can crowd in if you’re friendly.) It is patrolled and visible to the nearby highway as part of a riverfront park area with picnic tables. There are restroom facilities here, but usually locked except for summer weekends. This is a wide concrete ramp that scours well. The K-99 bridge provides shade at the ramp. Restaurants and shopping are a short walk from ramp.

Float Info:
The next access is at Belvue 10.5 miles downstream at river mile 119. The float from Belvue to Wamego is a beautiful 10 mile day trip.

The first access upstream is St. George River Front Park at river mile 137. As you approach the Wamego Access from the west, it is often advisable to pass under the K-99 bridge and turn upstream to reach the ramp.
