Campground Overview

Arkalon park is located 10 miles NE of Liberal KS on HWY 54. The park offers concrete pads, water, 30/50 amp power for campers, and well maintained grassy areas for tents. Most sites have covered picnic tables. All sites have fire rings and BBQ grills. There are hiking trails, a sandy volleyball area, fishing ponds on the property, and an amazing playground for kids.  There is also plenty of room to set up outdoor games. A fully equipped bath house is available for your convenience.  For your safety, there is a gate that will be locked every night from 10 p.m. - 7 a.m. and several tornado shelters (which hopefully, we never have to use).

Area Tips

Arkalon park is named after the town of Arkalon that was founded in 1888 at the Cimarron river crossing of the Chicago, Kansas and Nebraska railway, a part of the Rock Island. Town lots were cheap, and people flocked in by the hundreds. However, the deep sand of the area was a serious handicap to the movement of horse-drawn freight, and the town never succeeded in establishing itself as a profitable marketing point. It was sustained for years by the large stockyards but by the 1920's most of the population had gone.

There is a wonderful view of the Mighty Sampson of the Cimarron Railroad Bridge that is still in use today.  The bridge was a new design, built in 1939, out of necessity after three different bridges at this location colapsed during a span of two decades.  The bridge is 113 feet above the river bed (which is now dry), 1269 feet long, and is a floating bridge.  It sits on pylons but is not actually attached to them.  It was a contender for the 8 wonders of Kansas Architecture award.
