La Cygne, Kansas : City of the Swan on the Marais des Cygnes
Lake La Cygne and
Linn County Park
The heavily wooded lake and surrounding area is a haven for wildlife. You are likely to spot deer, squirrels, rabbits, wild turkey, ducks, geese, and even swans, for which the lake and La Cygne are named.
This warm water discharge lake is well known for its abundance of fishing opportunities, especially in the winter months. The lake is highly ranked for its largemouth bass populations as well as those of blue and channel catfish. Its crappie and wiper populations are also highly sought after. Two boat ramps access the lake, though boating is limited to fishing only.
Fishing is only one of many activities you can enjoy. Linn County Park is home to over twenty miles of horse trails, picnic shelters, a basketball court, and of course - camping facilities.
The marina is complete with live bait, tackle, gas/oil, and a variety of food and beverages.
Several rustic cabins are available for rent, or you can set up a tent or RV in one of the many campsites. Electric, water, and sewer hookups are provided, as well as shower facilities.
Lake La Cygne and Linn County Park are located in the northeastern corner of Linn County, just east of the junction of the U.S. 69 (4 lane) and K-152 highways. A quick 40 minutes south of Overland Park, KS.
