DescriptionNearby Lake Scott, part of Scott State Park, is fed by underground springs that have eroded the countryside into canyons, green hills and rough terrain—a visual oasis on the flat Kansas topography. About one mile south of Scott State Park on SR 95 is Punished Woman's Fork, site of the last Native American battle in Kansas. A monument overlooks a cave, canyon and the bluffs where the Northern Cheyenne hid waiting to ambush the U. S. Cavalry.
South of Scott City lies White Woman Basin, where the surface flow of White Woman Creek disappears. The stream, which rises in Colorado, completes its journey to the Arkansas River below ground.
