Access Information:  The concrete ramp is wide enough for one vehicle.  This ramp was the first Kansas River access developed by Friends of the Kaw in conjunction with the City of St. George, Westar’s Green Team, and many community members and businesses. The ramp was completed in January of 2003.

Amenities:  Restrooms, trash can, barbeque, picnic table, informational kiosk, lighting, and ample parking.  Best amenities on the river with easy walking to restaurants less than .5 mile away.  There is a reason that St. George is known by locals as the river town! 

Paddle Information:  The next access is the Wamego Access Ramp 8.5 miles downriver at river mile 128.  As you approach the Wamego Access from the west, it is often advisable to pass under the K-99 bridge and turn upstream next to the bank to reach the ramp.
