Clark County

Attractions and Recreation

There are many outdoor opportunities for those moving to Clark county. Located 15 miles south of Minneola, the Big Basin is a natural sinkhole thought to have been created by dissolving salts a few thousand years ago, which dropped the surface 100 feet. The entrance to the Big Basin Prairie Preserve lies in the bottom of the basin, which is home to a free roaming buffalo herd. If you’re a golfer, don’t miss the Ashland Golf Course, a nine-hole golf course open to the public.

For the hunter or fisherman, check out some of these great locations. Clark State Fishing Lake is nestled in the deep Bluff Creek Canyon. The area provides several short scenic drives, as well as walks and hiking along the Jay R. Wood Memorial Nature Trail. For access to more than 28,000 acres of bird cover on the Goodnight Ranch, contact the Cottonwood Quail Company. They offer complete hunting packages and self-guided hunts. Tamarack Outfitters specializes in trophy Kansas white-tail muzzleloader and archery hunts. 

If museums are more your style, visit the Pioneer-Krier Museum. The Clark County Historical Society manages the museum and offers several exhibits on the history of the county.
