This is the KS Turnpike service area for people food.  Generally, the KS Turnpike service areas consist of a McDonald's and a Phillips 66.  This stop featured a Hardee's and 5 other food brand choices.

 

While the dog sniffing was more easily accessed at the Lawrence Service Area, The Chauffeur was pleased with the food choices here.

 

The official dog walk east of the gas pumps is heavily used as evidenced by the trash, worned spots, and many many dog deposits left behind by humans inconsiderate of others.

 

The more adventurous dog will be much happier by venturing across one of the truck parking areas.  Our preference was on the south side.

No Dogs Here


Signs indicate this dogs should use the dog walk east of the service station.

Official Dog Walk


The official dog walk east of the gas pumps is about 125 feet by 150 feet. Though the space available for use by dogs is diminished by a low spot / drain in the middle.  Watch out for dog waste; we encounter many piles left behind.

North Side


Along the north side truck parking, the green is maintained about 50 feet deep.  This area runs the length of the service area for a couple hundred yards and is lined with cedar trees.  If you are allergic to cedar like some we know, head to our choice for green -- the south side.

South Side


Across the south truck parking is our choice for green.  Here you will find a open area, with the usable portion 50 feet deep running the lenght of the service area (couple hundred yards).  At either end the adventurous dog will find hills to climb.

Southwest Hill


Here we got adventurous and climbed the hill.  On top we found several trees and a flat maintained area about 75 feet by 125 feet.
