Cross Timbers State Park at Toronto Lake is located in the gently rolling hills of the Verdigris River Valley in southeastern Kansas. This 1075 acre preserve that overlooks the 2800 acre Toronto Reservoir marks the northern reaches of a region known to early explorers, pioneers, and today by ecologists as the Cross Timbers. Forested flood plains are surrounded by open prairie, hills of oak savannah, and forests. This setting provides the visitor an opportunity to enjoy wildlife in their natural setting and to see some of the most diverse flora and fauna found in Kansas.
The park offers a multitude of recreational activities for the visitor. Camping, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, picnicking, boating, and fishing are popular pursuits.
The park has complete facilities, including group camp areas, pull-through and back-in utility sites, and improved designated campsites for those not needing utilities. All the park campgrounds are served by modern bathroom and shower facilities. Modern cabins are available to visitors year-round. The cabins are located on the lake with a beautiful view of Toronto Resevoir and the surrounding Oak Bluffs.
