Often called “the Heart of Cheyenne Bottoms”, Hoisington is at the heart of many other things. Hoisington is located in the middle of Kansas at the junction of Kansas Highway 4 and United States Highway 281 and sits directly on the National Wetlands and Wildlife Scenic Byway. The community is located within 10 minutes of Barton Community College and is less than an hour away from Fort Hays State University and Pratt Community College. Hoisington is also a short drive from Russell, Hays, Great Bend and Ellsworth. Hoisington’s accessibility and hard-working labor force have it primed for growth. 

Hoisington’s outdoors have helped to develop eco-tourism in the entire region. Being situated at the top of Cheyenne Bottoms, a wetland of international significance, Hoisington enjoys a fair amount of travelers looking for a unique and unforgettable experience. Not only is Hoisington the only community located directly on the Wetlands and Wildlife National Scenic Byway, it is also home to some incredible wildlife. Neighboring Cheyenne Bottoms plays host to numerous endangered species of water fowl including the elusive whooping cranes as they migrate through the area twice a year.
