Central Kansas: Mushroom Rock State Park


Last year when we were in Fredericksburg Keltin and I visited Old Tunnel State Park and I thought that state park was tiny, man, was I wrong. As it turns out Mushroom Rock State Park in Kansas is smaller.

This tiny state park is only 5 acres and free to visit. There is no really parking lot just a wide gravel shoulder. There are restrooms onsite. The mushroom rocks are sandstone and sedimentary rock.

On the sandstone bases on the mushrooms people have carved their names. It makes me sad to see these beautiful natural formations treated so poorly. If you do get the chance to visit, take only pictures and leave only footprints.

Thank you KW Photography for allowing me to use your wonderful photos!

  1. Do you know the smallest State Park in Texas? ….. Crocket State Park, here in Granbury. Actually Acton. 5 miles from us. 😃
