The Great Outdoors
Great Bend's central location in the state as well as its enviable position along the Central Flyway makes it the ideal home base for both upland game and waterfowl hunting. Within one hour's distance of Great Bend you’ll find over 58,000 acres of public hunting areas, including Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area and Quivira National Wildlife Refuge.
Nature blessed Great Bend in a curious and unexpected way. She gave us an ocean in the midst of a sea of grass. A spectacular array of wildlife is attracted to our marshes and waters, offering nature lovers an unobstructed view into the wonders of the natural world. We make this guarantee. Spend a few days with us in the lush "Bottoms" and we promise that you will leave the rumor of "flat and dry" Kansas behind.
