Calhoun County Park is a hidden asset of our county. It is a beautiful recreational facility that belongs to all county residents. There are walking trails, ball fields, playgrounds, Heritage Village, community building, picnic shelters, fishing and much more.

It is also the site of Calhoun Days, Legends and Lore Tour, Living History encampment, gun show, music, reunions and numerous other events. Kitchen and dining facilities are available in the Herb C. Smith Community Building.

The brand-new Kitty Wilson Campground will be tentatively opening in May. Asphalt walkways from the camping area to the barn are planned as funds are available. The barn will be improved to be more accessible for handicapped use, and so that restrooms may be used by campers.

There are electric hookups at each campsite, a water station, shower facilities, pets allowed on leash, and reduced rates for long-term stay. Reservations may be made with Duane Poling, 354-6301, and paid before setting up.

The park is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the natural beauty of Calhoun County for present and future generations. The public events held at the park are made possible through fundraising activities and through donations of supporters. County employees who have previously taken care of the park will no longer be available because of budget cuts.

A contribution may be made to the park’s continued operation through donation of funds or through volunteerism. Call Henry Cooper, chairman, 354-6858, or Roger Jarvis, treasurer, 354-6398.

Park board meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m., and are always open to the public. Learn more about what Calhoun County Park has to offer by visiting the park in person or online at
