Fort Riley is a well known destination for those that enjoy the outdoors. It really is no coincidence that Fort Riley is known as one of the premier hunting and fishing installations within the Army. There is something for everyone including hunting, fishing, hiking and nature photography. The installation has twenty-nine managed fishery impoundments and hunting opportunities exist on over 71,000 acres of timber and prairie. Even if hunting or fishing is not your forte, there are many other opportunities to enjoy the outdoors in the area. The scenic Flint Hills found on Fort Riley offer the mountain biker a stiff challenge and horseback rider with some excellent views.
