Two lakes located just one mile west of Herington offer electric camping facilities, swimming and water sports, trophy bass, and some of the best small lake walleye fishing in Kansas. There's an abundance of game in the Herington area, and public hunting (for migratory wildfowl only) is allowed at the Herington Reservoir.
