Campsite Permit Fees

Lake Parsons has improved and primitive campsites available. You must get a permit from the City Clerk's Office.


There is currently no charge for camping in areas where no improved pad is available.

Camping is limited to 10 days per calendar month and not more than 10 consecutive days. Annual permit holders will be allowed to stay an additional four days by paying the daily permit rate, provided those four days do not run into a new month. Please call 620-421-7000 for camping and permit information. 

There are also two shelter houses available for use. They are the Elks and Kiwanis shelters. You may reserve a shelter by calling 620-421-7030 (number for shelter reservations only.) There is a $50 deposit to get a key and when the key is returned, your deposit is refunded*. Shelter houses may be used for family gatherings, cookouts, etc. No bands as well as no camping are allowed at these shelters.

* Refund of deposit is based on the return on the key and condition of the facility post-rental.
