Eskridge

Eskridge is located in Wabaunsee County, along the Native Stone Scenic Byway on Highway K4. Founded in 1869, the town is rich in history and prides itself as being the “Gateway to the Flint Hills”. Lake Wabaunsee is located five miles west of Eskridge on Highway K99 and K4. The lake is one of only a handful in Kansas that has cottages and year-round homes right on the lake shore. Eskridge is host to several annual events including the Eskridge Labor Day Rodeo, Veteran’s Day Parade, Fourth of July picnic in the park, a fireworks display at Lake Wabaunsee and the Eskridge Fall Festival. Come spend a day with us and enjoy small town America.
