Harvey County East Park offers 1,300 sprawling acres of East Campground 2 300
family fun for visitors just a few miles east of the heart of Newton.

A 314-acre lake blends its tree-lined shady shores with an abundance of space for fishing, swimming, boating and personal watercraft.

Campgrounds surround all around the water, in close proximity to playgrounds, a softball diamond and volleyball courts. Three restrooms - two of which are bathhouses - are available for patrons.

Volunteer Hall at East Park offers a closed shelter with heating and air conditioning. It can seat about 100 people, with easy access to a boat ramp and swimming beach. The interior includes a stove, refrigerator, sink and restrooms. 
The park also has open shelters to enjoy. More information on hosting events at our parks can be found here.

East Park offers a mix of trails perfect for walking, running  Osage Nature Trail 5 300
and horseback riding. East Park includes the Osage Nature Trail, which is also home to the Indigent Persons Memorial. The East Park trails have been mapped at getoutdoorskansas.org.

Seasonally, limited hunting is available by reservation on specified areas of East Park. During this time, portions of the trail routes that overlap with the hunting grounds are closed. Horse trail parking is temporarily relocated off of Northeast 24th Street during hunting season.

The Harvey County Radio Control Park is also located at East Park.  

Boating, camping and horseback riding are subject to fees. Fishing requires a state-issued fishing license.

East Park is located at 314 N. East Lake Rd. in Newton.
