Cheney State Park is a state park of Kansas in the United States. Completed in 1964, the park is located in Kingman and Reno counties in Kansas, 5 miles north of Cheney and 20 miles west of Wichita.

The state park is located on the south end of the lake on both east and west shores. Since its completion in 1964, the 1,913 acre lake park has grown to include 223 electric hookup sites with water, 22 boat launching lanes, seven modern pit toilets, nine restrooms with showers, one shelter house with restrooms and four trailer dump stations. Camping is permitted only in designated areas.

There are seven modern cabins located on the West Shore Area of the park. Rental information is available by calling the park office. The group camping area can be rented and includes 20 utility sites, a modern restroom, and a large 30’ x 60’ sheter. The park has four designated swimming areas as well as several picnic/day use areas. For the camper, there is a mix of primitive and utility camping.

These areas range from water’s edge to grassy, tree-covered areas along a quiet spring-fed creek. Located in windy central Kansas, the lake offers excellent sailing, In fact, national sailing regattas take place at Cheney. It’s a breathtaking sight to see more than 100 multicolored sailboats on the lake at one time. The Ninnescah Sailing Center on the west shore is the “headquarters” for sailing at Cheney.

On the east shore, a full-service marina carries supplies for the boater and fisherman with rental docks.
