Located near Manhattan in the Flint Hills of Northeast Kansas, Tuttle Creek State Park offers a broad variety of outdoor recreational opportunities. Tuttle Creek Reservoir is the state's second largest impoundment, offering 12,500 acres of water and 100 miles of rugged, wooded shoreline.

Both utility campsites and primitive campsites are available, along with a swimming beach, cabins, boat ramps, courtesy docks, a full service marina, and dump stations. Campgrounds contain eight water,electric and sewer campsites; 159 water and electric campsites; 44 electric-only campsites; and 500 primitive non designated campsites. Numerous nature trails, a mountain bike trail, and a scenic equestrian trail offer explorers a variety of routes to discover the Flint HIlls and tall grass prairies. Scenic picnic areas, an 18-hole disc golf course,an archery range, volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, and conveniently placed restroom and shower facilities accommodate park visitors. The Fancy Creek Shooting Range offers a safe shooting range environment and is open the first and third full weekends of each month and the fourth Thursday. Anglers will find that Tuttle Creek offers excellent channel cat and flathead fishing in the lake and also in the river above and below the lake. Fair numbers of bass and crappie are caught near standing timber and brush piles. Saugeye are often caught off the face of the dam, as well as in the river below.
