Rockhaven Park

Rockhaven Park is undergoing some changes to the campground this winter.  The campground is closed for the winter, with a projected opening date of 1 April 2020.  While we are within the six month time frame for advance reservations, none of the Rockhaven Park campsites are open to reservations for this upcoming summer, due to the alterations being made.  You can check the www.recreation.gov website, call the reservation service at 877-444-6777, or call the Clinton Lake Corps of Engineers office at 785-843-7665 for information on the Rockhaven Park Equestrian campground.

Welcome to Clinton Lake

Follow CDC guidelines, even when outdoors. We are not staffed to maintain/clean lake & park areas. Be cautious about touching anything. Sanitize and wash often. Practice social distancing.
To protect against the further spread of the Coronavirus all USACE-managed campgrounds have begun an orderly shutdown and will be closed indefinitely. Individuals with paid reservations will be contacted by email and full refunds will automatically be processed by Recreation.gov with no cancellation fees. Do not attempt to contact Recreation.gov to request a refund as that will lead to a cancellation fee being charged.
We are taking precautions and have closed our Visitor Center effective March 13, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide timely updates regarding other potential facility closures at our lakes on our websites and/or social sites.
It may be chilly and the plants may be threadbare this time of year, but there are still some beautiful sights out at the lake if you take the time to look! This sunset captivated Dec. 30, 2019 at Clinton Lake near Lawrence, Kan.
