Castle Rock is about 12 miles south of I-70 between Quinter and Collyer, Kan. The limestone, chalk and shale formation was once covered by a chalk ocean. The chalk bluffs are still a fossil hunter’s delight and has the appearance of an old English castle.

The Chalk Pyramids and Monument Rocks are names for the same group of rock outcroppings, near U.S. 83 in western Kansas. Like the Castle Rock Badlands, the Monument Rocks are on private range land but open to the public. The 70-foot-tall sedimentary formations of Niobrara Chalk were created 80 million years ago when this area was part of a vast inland sea. The U.S. Department of the Interior has designated the Chalk Pyramids as a National Natural Landmark.

Fantasy Flyers offers full and half day quail and pheasant hunting services as well as a bunkhouse.
