The Hawkeye Point campground now has four sites with concrete pads, just in time for a busy summer!
Thanks to grants from the Lyon County Riverboat Foundation and Community Foundation of Osceola County, the Hawkeye Point Foundation was able to complete four sites, and plans to gradually complete more pad sites in the future.
The Hawkeye Point campground, located just north of the high point, opened in 2011, and it includes 12 camping sites, a shelter house, bathhouse, playground equipment, a fire pit and 24 picnic tables. All sites have water.
Much of the work at Hawkeye Point has been funded by local grants such as the Community Foundation of Osceola County and Lyon County Riverboat Foundation, and through generous donors. The National Visitors can learn more about the many native grasses and wildflowers around Hawkeye Point through interpretive signs.
For more information on highpoints in the US, visit the Highpointers Club and The Highpointers Foundation websites. Both organizations continue to be incredibly generous and supportive of Hawkeye Point.
More volunteers are always welcome. If interested please contact the Osceola County Economic Development Commission at 712-754-2523.
