Beautiful Lake Parsons is a peaceful retreat for campers, a fun-filled beach for summer swimmers, and a sportsman's paradise for hunting and fishing. This year-round recreational area draws visitors from across the region.
There are 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 reservation 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.
Those looking for a relaxing afternoon can take advantage
of the swimming area. Swim at your own risk as there is not
a lifeguard on duty.
