Milford - Our Secret Getaway

Let me share a reluctant secret with you -- a place my husband and I consider to be our secret getaway. Milford Lake is the largest reservoir in Kansas. The lake has a surface area of 16,000 acres and 163 miles of shoreline. You wouldn't think that something so large could be a secret, but I've lived around a lot of lakes that are packed solid with people. This lake is not. There is plenty of open space. It is utilized for many recreational purposes, including nature watching, water sports, fishing, hunting, and camping, but there is always a private spot to set yourself down. So don't tell your friends about this -- just slip away by yourself for a private little getaway.

All in all this place was very nice and well kept. We were very disappointed with the private beach though, as you basically had no access because of the extremely rocky beach.
