hello world!

Not everyone knows that, in the heart and center of Kansas, Manhattan is the nest egg of beautiful lakeside properties and homes. There are numerous prospering lakes and waterslides with land-owning potential for one's dream lakeside property. Tuttle Creek Lake is the 2nd largest lake in Kansas at 12,500 acres and 15 miles long in length. Lake Elbo is a small, private lake community just to the east of Manhattan. Council Grove Lake is 30 minutes to the south. And Milford Lake which is the the largest lake in Kansas is located just 45 minutes to the west. Here are just a few popular locations you will need to know of:

Tuttle Creek Lake

Although there is no direct lake access from the homes surrounding Tuttle Creek , the housing is very popular for the spectacular views available there. Homes range from beautiful upper end homes and small, cozy cabins in other neighborhoods. The west side is located in Riley County and the Manhattan School District. The east side of the lake is located in Pottawatomie county and those students attend the Rock Creek School District. The neighborhoods further north may attend Riley or Blue Valley school districts. Another terrific location to visit near Manhattan is the Tuttle Creek State Park, where you will find a wide variety of outdoor recreation possibilities and plenty of room to roam. The Tuttle Creek Reservoir is the state's second-largest impoundment, offering over 12,500 acres of water and approximately 100 miles of rugged, wooded shoreline to explore. This family fun state park is an adventure for all. There are four units (River Pond, Cedar Ridge, Fancy Creek, and Randolph) that make up the 1,200 - acre park. Electric and water hookups, a swimming beach, boat ramps, courtesy docks, cabins, numerous nature trails, a mountain biking trail, and a scenic equestrian trail offer explorers various routes to experience the aesthetic Flint Hills environment.

Lake Elbo

Lake Elbo is a reservoir located just 5.6 miles from Manhattan, in Pottawatomie County, in Kansas, United States, near Swamp Angel, KS. Anglers will find various fish, including largemouth bass, crappie, sunfish, catfish, and bream/bluegill here. Alternate names for this reservoir include Elbo Lake. Locals love coming to this beautiful fishing and boating location!

Milford Lake

Not far away, Milford Lake is the largest man-made -made lake in Kansas; it was authorized by Congress in 1954 and constructed by the Corps of Engineers in the early 1960s. Located close to Junction City (right next to Manhattan), Milford is designed to provide flood control, navigation, improved water quality, water supply, recreation, plus fish and wildlife benefits. On average, half a million people visit Milford Lake each year! More than a dozen unique locations at Milford Lake offer camping, picnicking, swimming, boat ramps, and fishing access. With over 23,000 acres managed for wildlife and hunting opportunities, Milford is home to the 2005 World Series of Walleye Fishing, the PWT Mercury Championship, the Kansas State Ahearn Scholarship Tournament, and the 2005 Governor's Cup.
