Wichita on the Cheap

Live the Good Life for Less & Never Miss a Deal

Free entrance to Lake Afton

This year, Sedgwick County is celebrating the 75th anniversary of one of its most popular lakes. From Friday, June 2, to Sunday, June 4, 2017, get FREE admission to Lake Afton! This is a free park pass weekend at Lake Afton for everyone!

Thanks so much to Jessica for alerting me to this deal!

In addition to the free entrance this weekend, Lake Afton Park will celebrate its anniversary all year long with 75-cent popcorn, 12 oz. slushes, and fountain drinks!

Okay, and here’s the other thing that’s great about this free weekend at Lake Afton: This weekend also happens to be FREE FISHING WEEKEND in Kansas! I know, right? This is the cheapest summer weekend ever.

Of course, this free park pass weekend doesn’t include camping fees, which are from $8 to $12 per day. (That’s still a steal!) It’s just for day passes.

No entrance fee to Lake Afton June 2-4, 2017 to celebrate Lake Afton's 75th anniversary
