Thank you for visiting Harrison County Parks!

 

Harrison County Conservation Board is located in the beautiful Loess Hills of western Iowa! There are 17 park and wildlife areas with almost 1,800 acres for outdoor recreation like camping, fishing, hunting, hiking, wildlife watching, picnicking and boating. We’re just an hour from Omaha and surrounding attractions including the Harrison County Historical Village and Iowa Welcome Center, Loess Hills State Forest, and DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge. There’s something for everyone!

 

COVID-19 UPDATES: 

Harrison County Conservation Board parks are open for general use without restrictions, however, COVID-19 is still active in our communities. We are taking extra measures to clean and disinfect shower houses, restrooms, and rental cabins. We ask that group size be limited to 10 or less when visiting the HCCB office or nature center. HCCB encourages all park users to practice social distancing and wash hands frequently. At this time, the Harrison County Historical Village and Iowa Welcome Center is open, but has some restrictions and reduced hours. 

 

BRIDGE OPEN TO WILLOW LAKE:

Construction of the bridge on Easton Trail (F20L) from Woodbine has been completed and there is no longer a detour!

 

Discover. Learn. Enjoy.
