Cheney State Park is a grand Kansas state park, about 189 miles (304 km) north of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Please note that while there are no designated stargazing areas, the park is accessible by locals and tourists year-round, and also provides ample opportunity for hiking, fishing, nature photography, and more; a refuge has been set aside on the wildlife area for migratory waterfowl. Camping is also available, and offers more than 400 primitive campsites, 35 shelters, and 9 modern cabins that vary in their amenities. One EarthSky friend says “the wide open spaces allow for a ‘big screen effect’ of spectacular views — especially for meteor showers.” For more information, please visit online or call 316-542-3664.
