    Botkins Reviews

    1 review
    People are really friendly and helpful. It has two parks one in that in the town proper and one that sits just outside of town. There is a pool and 1/4 mile track that are open to the public. It does lack a little bit of nightlife but finds itself between Sidney and Wapakonata so excitement is not too hard to find.
