Cedar Bluff State Park
An eastern view of the park.

Cedar Bluff State Park is a state park in Trego County, Kansas, United States. It is located 21 miles southeast of WaKeeney and 23 miles southwest of Ellis.

The park is divided into two areas, comprising 1,100 acres (4.5 km2), straddle the beautiful 6,800-acre (28 km2) Cedar Bluff Reservoir: Bluffton on the North Shore is the most developed and receives extensive use. Page Creek on the South Shore offers beautiful primitive camping as well as a generous helping of utility sites. Just west of the Page Creek Area, the visitor can find the juniper-lined, 100-foot tall limestone bluffs, from which the reservoir's name was derived (junipers were often misidentified as "cedars" by early settlers).

Threshing Machine Canyon, the site of a 1850s Native American attack on a wagon train bearing a threshing machine, is accessed by a road west of the park. In the historic canyon one can find carvings dating back to the mid-1800s.
