To most kayakers in the Wichita area, one would think that El Dorado lake is over ran with large boats and too busy for any kayak on the weekends. What I recently found was that if you know the right honey holes, it is quite the contrary. You see, El Dorado lake has around seven creeks that branch off from the larger body of water and flow to the east. If you're looking for a peaceful quite evening on the water, I'll let you in on a little secret. See map to your left.
Take 177 North over the East end of the lake. Once across, take your first right on NE 20th Rd, then another right at the first dirt road you see. This road will lead you back to Bemis Creek, where there is even a easy spot to drop your Kayak in. You can head up the creek for a bit of Tranquility from the world or stroll your way into the large lake for a beautiful sunset in the evening. Whatever your poison, let us know how you like it.
