Fort Riley - Conservation

Welcome to Fort Riley, Kansas

The Fort Riley Military Reservation is located in northeast Kansas between Manhattan and Junction City on the northern edge of the Flint Hills Region. About 71,000 of the installation's 101,000 acres are managed for multiple use. The installation's primary mission is to be a Warfighting Center for America's army. But, it also provides an area where a wide variety of outdoor recreation activities can be pursued by both military personnel and the general public. Pursuits include hunting choices from big game to mushrooms, or recreational activities like mountain biking and bird watching. Regardless of whether you are hunting with a gun or a camera, or are hiking, horseback riding, or picnicking, there are certain procedures that you must follow when you use the installation for recreation. The restrictions have been established to ensure that neither the installation's mission nor your safety is jeopardized by your use of the installation for recreation. This site was developed to allow recreational users to gather information on all available opportunities and the regulations which correspond.  Navigate the site to learn about the rules and all Fort Riley has to offer.
