Pomona State Park

22900 S. Highway 368
Vassar, KS 66543


Well-known by northeast Kansas residents for shady campsites and a great family atmosphere, the 490-acre Pomona State Park is located in Osage County, 30 miles south of Topeka. Recreation opportunities at the park include camping, picnicking, fishing, boating, hiking, and wildlife viewing.

The park has 140 water/electric campsites and more than 200 primitive campsites. Lighthouse Bay Marina provides full services to boaters, anglers, skiers and campers. Four boat ramps are available in the park, and the lake's generally calm waters are popular with skiers.

Southwind Shelter House is a group facility equipped with restrooms, a kitchenette, a large multi-purpose room, and restful porch areas. Call the park office for availability and reservations. A swim beach and bath house are located in the park, as well as picnic shelters, playgrounds, volleyball courts, horse shoe pits, and a nine-hole disc golf course.

Nearby wildlife areas offer upland bird and waterfowl hunting. Bald eagles visit the lake in the winter and are often seen perching in shoreline trees or soaring above the lake. A popular destination for fishermen, the 4,000-acre Pomona Reservoir offers some of the best crappie and catfish angling in Kansas, as well as good populations of walleye, white bass, and largemouth bass.
