Default Chatauqua and Red Hills

I am wondering if anyone is familiar with these two distinct regions of Kansas?

Are either or both worth a visit? What to see, where to stay?

These two regions are in southern KS and are rather isolated from anything. The Gyp Hills are located in Barber County, Commanche County, and Clark County region. The Chautaqua Hills are located in Chautaqua County. Those areas have rather interesting features, but maybe not spectacular.

If those two regions are too isolated you could try the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve in the Flinthills of Chase County, which is located right along the Kansas Turnpike. Another option in the Flint Hills area would be the Konza Prairie Preserve which is south of Manhattan.

Good response, thank you. I'll have to check out the Flint Hills in more detail and take a side trip down to the OK. border. From my perspective, the more isolated, the better.
