For years, people who wanted detailed maps of Kansas reservoirs had to splice together several different topographic maps. Now the Kansas Geological Survey has produced individual topographic maps for each of the state’s major lakes and several of its wildlife refuges.
Each map depicts an entire lake, along with surrounding roads, houses, quarries, and other features. The maps are printed on water-resistant paper, ideal for use while fishing, hunting, canoeing, or hiking.

Maps are available for Tuttle Creek, Wilson, John Redmond, Glen Elder, Kirwin, Cedar Bluff, Marion, Clinton, Perry, Melvern, Norton, Pomona, Cheney, Toronto, Fall River, Elk City, Milford, Kanopolis, Webster, El Dorado, La Cygne, Lake Shawnee, and Lovewell reservoirs, along with the Cheyenne Bottoms and Marais des Cygnes waterfowl areas and the Quivira National Wildlife Refuge. The maps cost $15 each, along with taxes and handling. Most of the lake maps show lake-bottom topography.

For more information, to order a map, or to get a copy of a brochure that describes all the maps, call the Survey at 785-864-3965 or check the Survey’s home page at
