"Hands-on adventure 

honest-to-goodness fun"


What we call Wild West Country is one of the Midwest’s hidden treasures. We are 22 counties in Southwest Kansas, with wide-open spaces, magnificent sunrises and sunsets, and diverse, sometimes rugged, landscapes.

Once you step into one of our small town cafes for a piece of homemade pie, stand out on the sand-sage prairie and wonder what the settlers of this great land experienced more than 125 years ago, or visit one of our world-class museums, we believe you will put Southwest Kansas people and places on the top of your list to visit.

We welcome you and want to help you find our treasures. Please contact us for trip ideas and for any help we can give you to enhance your enjoyment of “Wild West Country.”
