Prairie Dog State Park, Near Norton, Kansas, USA

Picture StoryPrairie Dog State Park is located 6 kilometres west of Norton, Kansas. The park had no prairie dog population when it was established, but they were introduced in the 1980s and there are now about 300. There's quite a bit for visitors to do at the park, including one of the last remaining adobe houses on the prairies, an 1880's one room school house, the prairie dog town, and many recreational facilities. However, most important for us was the excellent campground, because Prairie Dog State Park was just a one night stop over for us as we travelled south and west from Canada to Colorado towing our RV. When we travel through the US, we always look forward to hearing the coyotes at these rather isolated camping spots, and Prairie Dog State Park did not disappoint, and we fell asleep listening to them.
