Welcome to
Living Water Ranch
Retreat & Conference Center


We invite you to Escape, Play, Stay, Unplug, and Discover! 
Just 12 miles from Manhattan, KS



Located in the Flint Hills and nestled in the middle of 500 acres of tall grass prairie, LWR is just 12 miles north of Manhattan, KS - close enough to the conveniences of an urban area and remote enough that you will feel like you are "getting away from it all".


LWR offers a variety of recreation!  Try your hand at a game of horseshoes or take a dip in our swimming pool on a hot day.  Our professionally designed Disc Golf course is always a big hit.  Volleyball and basketball are favorites with kids and adults alike.  For a team building experience, the Challenge Course is a must and for the avid outdoors lover, our shooting sports will keep you on target!

"The view and the people put this place above the rest. Food is delicious and rooms are nice."
-Joshua R.



Personal and group retreats, business conferences and seminars, university groups, family reunions, weddings, military groups, a romantic get-away and banquets are some events that schedule with LWR and enjoy our beautiful facilities.

Come for a day, spend a night or week if desired! After a day of meetings with your group, take time to hike one of our nature trails, visit with seldom-seen family members, or relax in one of our comfortable private guest rooms. Private rooms have a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. All private rooms have their own private bathroom.

A variety of housing options are available. If you prefer, you can "rough it" in your own tent or park your RV or camper at one of our 6 hook ups.

We have a dormitory that is a great fit for groups up to 50 and our private suites are always a fantastic option.

Our state licensed and inspected kitchen provides delicious, affordable meals. We are big enough to host a complete banquet for up to 110 people and small enough to provide a picnic lunch for two. Home-cooked meals are served in our main building, Lodge Of The Living Stone.

One of the comments we hear on a regular basis is, “It’s so calming and fun at LWR!” Time spent at Living Water Ranch Retreat & Conference Center is a good opportunity to unplug from the hectic pace of life and get some quality time with family, friends or yourself! 


The hills provide a stunningly beautiful backdrop to the shimmering sun-kissed waters of Tuttle Creek Lake with access to the shore.

Opportunities abound to experience wildlife such as the white tailed deer, wild turkey and the majestic bald eagle. Our surroundings support the kind of atmosphere we strive to provide our guests during their stay with us.

hidden gem

the rolling 
of Kansas!"
