Know Before You Go
Operation of any vehicle that is not properly licensed is prohibited at Melvern Lake. This includes golf carts, motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, motorized skateboards, electric bicycles, or any other vehicle typically designed for off road or recreational use.

In 2011, it was discovered that Melvern Lake had been infested with zebra mussels. The Zebra mussel is an invasive species in the U.S. and Kansas has adopted new laws to help to alleviate this problem. It is extremely important to keep your vessels clean and drained dry of any water collected while boating in infested waters to avoid spreading this nuisance species. For more information, contact the project office (www.nwk.usace.army.mil/me) at 785-549-3318 or Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism at www.kdwpt.state.ks.us/.

    Overview

    Overview

    Arrow Rock Campground is situated on Melvern Lake on the eastern edge of the Flint Hills of Kansas. Visitors enjoy the area's wide range of recreational activities, including boating, fishing, hiking and hunting.

    Natural Features:

    The Flint Hills represent America's last expanse of intact tallgrass prairie, made up of big bluestem, switchgrass and Indian grass. The rolling hills on the south side of the lake are wooded, but trees and shade are more sparse within the campground.

    Recreation:

    Melvern Lake impounds nearly 7,000 acres of water on the upper reaches of the Marais des Cygnes River Valley. Boating and swimming are popular activities on the lake.

    Anglers will find walleye, crappie, channel and flathead catfish, as well as black, striped, white and smallmouth bass.

    The 18,000 acres of land surrounding Melvern Lake provide plentiful hiking and hunting opportunities. Several trails wind around the lake, including the 4-mile Tallgrass Heritage Trail, which begins in the campground. Hunters may find deer, quail, turkeys, ducks, rabbits and squirrels throughout the area.

    Facilities:

    The campground offers 45 campsites, 19 of which have electric and water hookups. Several picnic sites are available on a first come, first served basis, including a group picnic shelter.

    Amenities include flush and vault toilets, showers, drinking water and a dump station. A boat ramp, dock, fish cleaning station and playground offer additional recreation opportunities.
