"Big Basin" Kansas Off The Beaten Path Tip by Astrobuck

Kansas Off The Beaten Path: 40 reviews and 97 photos


Although you drive through it, Big Basin is truly off the beaten path. It was formed thousands of years ago by collapsing gypsum and salt formations several hundred feet below the surface.

It may not seem like much, but it does boast to have the most striking butte/mesa topography unlike any other in Kansas.
