'Shut-down' doesn't affect state-owned recreation areas The Kansas Department of Wild- life, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) re- minds visitors that all Kansas state parks..are open for business. State park camping areas, cabins, trails, boat ramps, and other amenities are open, as are many of the businesses serving lake visitors. KDWPT offices and na- ture centers are open during regular hours, and access to all wildlife areas and fishing lakes operated by the de- partment remains unchanged. The federal shutdown has created some confusion. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Recla- mation own many of the reservoirs in Kansas and federal campgrounds, day use areas and boat ramps are closed. However, KDWPT operates the state parks and wildlife areas at many of those reservoirs and offers access to those lakes' variety of recreational ac- tivities such as fishing, Camping, hik- ing, boating, mountain biking, picnick- ing, wildlife watching and more.
