Big Kansas Road Trip 2018

The Big Kansas Road Trip will be May 3-6, 2018. Everyone is invited to descend on the same three counties (Barber, Comanche and Kiowa) and enjoy shops, restaurants, attractions and scenic roads. It will be a great time to explore Kansas with hundreds of other people who want to get to know Kansas!

Medicine Lodge is the most populous city in and the county seat of Barber County, KS. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 2,009. Beautiful Gypsum Hills scenery, rich history, winding rivers, plentiful wildlife and eclectic shops and restaurants are all a part of the charm our town has to offer.


City Hall will be closed Monday, May 28 for Memorial Day. Trash will be delayed one day for all customers.



The City is currently in a Water Emergency due to drought conditions. Citizens may water before 10:00 am and after 9:00 pm.
