Manhattan — It's been a busy year at Tuttle Creek State Park, and as summer approaches, the park has a number of improvements to attract visitors.
The state park now has four cabins, kayaks and canoes for rent. The cabins are operational year-round. In addition to the four cabins now open, the park plans to add three more this year.
Current rental rates vary on weekends and weekdays, as well as time of year. Cabins rent for as little as $55 and as much as $85 per night and are complete with bathroom, heating and air conditioning, full kitchen, table and chairs, basic pots and pans and table service for four.
Call (785) 539-7941 for reservations.
The park has eight canoes, four kayaks, two paddle boats, a canoe trailer and a small fishing boat for rent. The boats can be put on the River Pond Area. Because the Kansas River is nearby, canoes or kayaks can be obtained to take a trip from Manhattan to Wamego.
Rental rates are $5 per hour or $20 per day. If a group takes five or more boats, the rates drop to $4 per hour or $15 per day. A canoe shuttle requires an additional boat charge.
