KDWP has been very geocacher friendly and in fact runs an annual geocaching contest, however each park or public land has a manager and they would like to be asked for permission prior to cache placement on their lands.  

Contact Info: Most contact information can be found at http://www.kdwpt.state.ks.us/.
