Funyaking on the Kansas River!

Address: KS 99 bridge south of dowtown Wamego
Wamego, KS 66547



About this Exploration:

 

Funyak (n) - Funyaks are self-bailing, inflatable kayaks carrying one or two people. They are very stable and comfortable with room to stretch your back and legs on a soft surface. Even with no prior experience you can enjoy the thrills of river kayaking on the Kansas River with a funyak, canoe, row boat, or even an inner tube!

Boat ramp
A new river boat ramp was built in 2008
 
Wamego Riverfront Park and Access Ramp
The boat ramp was completed in 2008 and include restrooms and a parking area. It presently serves as an excellent place to start, break, or end for those traveling along the river. The access point is located on the south side of Wamego under KS 99.
 
Directions
From Downtown on Lincoln Avenue, head south across the railroad tracks
Turn right (going west) on Valley Road then left (heading south) at the first alley.
 

Sandbars on the Kansas River
Stop and explore the sand for old glass bottles, arrowheads, animal bones, and bank swallows’ nests. Gather up drift wood, build a fire, and set up camp for the night. Just make sure you settle in on high ground and not on an island. You don’t want to wake up to find the river at your toes – or worse!

Duck Hunting on the Kansas River
For an eight mile stretch of river primed for duck hunting, put in at St. George and end at Wamego.
