The tiny, two lane road that leads up to Chase state fishing lake is so picturesque and pastoral, you'll think you've transported inside a Thomas Hart Benton painting. The lake is nestled in the sweetest hills, and feels perfectly secluded. We just stopped for a...More

We camped here on a weekday. One other camper was there so it was without a lot of human noise. We did hear a lot of insects, tree frogs and birds. Swimming is allowed at the lake at your own risk. It's large enough for...More

We went to Cottonwood Falls to find the waterfall. Could not find it. Chase State Fishing Lake was quiet, serene, and beautiful. Will definitely go there againl

Nice large lake, with piers jutting out from the roadway that one can stand on and fish from. Lots of room, picnic areas and camping areas also. No charge. Dirt road. Seems like a very well liked fishing spot.

nice little fishing lake. My family likes to camp here, rustic camping. Fishing is usually good. Don't try to swim across, there are currents and people have drowned here. Chase County has many artists and good restaurants, as well as beautiful scenery with the Flint...More

It's a lake which is great, but it has nothing to make it stand out as being better than many other little lakes.
