Kaw Lake Needs Your Help!

The Kaw Lake team is dedicated to providing a quality outdoor recreation experience to our customers. Federal budget constraints make operating Kaw Lake Recreation Areas more difficult each year. We need your help! Volunteer services make our mission possible. The Kaw Lake Office is currently accepting applications for volunteers. Volunteers may be given  a full hookup campsite in exchange for volunteer hours worked during the week. To become a volunteer at Kaw Lake, please contact the Kaw lake Project Office at 580-762-5611 and request an application.

Volunteers don't just do the work - they make it work!
