Knob Noster State Park is a tranquil idyllic oasis mixture of prairie, open woodland and forest along both sides of a meandering creek. It’s a place for fishermen to wet a line, for mountain bikers, hikers and horseback riders to get some trail time, and for families to spend quality time together. It’s also a place for aviation enthusiasts to stay in the campground and watch the B-2 Spirit bombers take off and land at nearby Whiteman Air Force Base.

The hiking is okay - its the history of this place that is really the attraction. The visitors center tells the story of how the area was used by soldiers during the Civil War. Worth the trip for history buffs.

Boy Scout campout. This is a great campground at a State Park. Very quiet and lots of trails and lakes to hike and visit. Views are nice and the staff is great.

This place is nice, Camp Host is great. We finally got to have a fire because he blew big radius around the firepits. Upper Midwest is dry and fire prone this year. Again super camp host!

We spent several nights here recently in our motorhome and had an excellent experience. Check-in was efficient, and the park was well-maintained and lovely. Sites didn't have quite as much privacy as we'd hoped due to lack of low vegetation, but were far enough apart...More
