Harvey County Parks

What a great time of the year. Warm, sunny days to be outside, great for fishing. Cool, comfortable evenings, perfect for a campfire. It’s a great time to be in your Harvey County Parks.
Camping is available at all 3 county parks. East Park and West Park have electrical camping pads for tents, RV’s and campers. Plus lots of room for primitive(rough) camping for tents or RV’s and campers. At Camp Hawk we currently only have tent primitive camping but will be adding a couple of electrical camping pads for tents, RV’s and campers in the near future.
All utilities are up and running at campsites and public restrooms/shower houses are open and ready for service.
All three parks have had the first of three fish stockings so the fish are starting to bite. There is never a charge to fish at Harvey County Parks but a valid Kansas fishing license is required for all out of state residents and Kansas residents age 16 to 74.
Hope to see you out there!

Just came home from Camp Hawk and it was beautiful. Could hear the turkeys at sunset. Only fish that we're biting were bluegill. Where can we find information on what the lakes and ponds are stocked with?

Camped overnight last Friday at HC East. Perfect temperature, full moon, and no wind until morning. Thanks for doing a great job!

Put it on your calendar for Saturday!Reducing drug use in the county takes a little help from everyone. An easy way to help is joining us in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day event this Saturday. This past October, you all helped us collect 206 pounds of prescription drugs so they could be disposed of responsibly and safely - part of 457 TONS collected across the nation. Let's do it again.

We'll be in the Law Enforcement Center lobby, 120 E. Seventh St. in Newton, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. No questions asked, and it's completely free. Just bring it by and we'll do the rest to properly dispose of them. We just can't take liquids or needles. It's a small but crucial part you can play in keeping prescription drugs out of the wrong hands.
