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. While the installation's primary mission is to be a Warfighting Center for America's army, it also provides an area where a 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, hiking, horseback riding, or whatever else, there are certain special 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. For anyone wanting to recreate on the installation's Military Training Lands, the first steps are to create a Fort Riley iSportsman Account in the "My Account" tab at the top of this page. After creating an account, view the mandatory 2021 Outdoor Recreation Briefing in "My Account". Next, please navigate the site to learn about the rules and all Fort Riley has to offer.

Fort Riley

Kansas was officially opened to white settlers in 1854, and settlers, lured by promises of cheap land and easy wealth, rushed to the area. As settlements grew behind the westward movement of the frontier line, the federal government built roads and forts to accommodate the migration and to protect and assist the travelers along the trails that led southwest to Santa Fe and Denver, and northwest to Salt Lake City and The Dalles in Oregon. Fort Riley, Kansas, built on the Santa Fe Trail near the confluence of the Kansas and Republican Rivers in 1855, was one of those forts.
