Lake Coldwater is the only city, county, or state lake in southwest Kansas that permits water-related sports. It is a 250 acre man-made lake in a 900+ acre park within the Coldwater City limits.
Utilized by people from a large area of Kansas and Oklahoma, the lake provides ample facilities and opportunities for boating, swimming, fishing, and camping. Those with campers and trailers will find adequate campsites with water and electric hookups, as well as sanitary facilities at various points around the lake. Other camping and picnic areas have been built within the park, with more being added each year.
Lake Coldwater has an abundance of trees and wildlife. Camping spots canrndisappear quickly so it’s best to call and make reservations ahead of the date you are planning to come.
The lake is owned and operated by the City of Coldwater. Annual fish stocking is handled by the Kansas Wildlife and Parks Commission.
