Best known for the 1,052 acre F.W. Kent Park, Johnson County Conservation provides a variety of services in natural resources, recreation, and conservation throughout the county. Several native prairies, river access areas, small community parks, are all part of the parks JCC manages and owns. Kent Park, the largest JCC holding, has secluded campsites, featuring 86 electric sites (50 amp service) and toilets/shower facilities. Individual vehicle campsite pads are black topped and feature a picnic table and ground fire ring. Firewood is available for purchase and there is a sanitary dump station nearby. All sites are $15.00 per night. No reservations are required for campsites; they are all first come, first serve. Campground hosts reside on the site from mid-May through mid-September. Rangers periodically patrol the area. The park closes at 10:30 PM and opens at sunrise. Closing hours are rigidly enforced for your protection.
