Majestic oak woodlands dominate the steeply sloping riparian landscape of the Cottonwood River within the 700 acre Garvin Park. Miles of trails, and plentiful rest areas allow visitors substantial opportunity to explore the rich habitat and diverse wildlife that use this park. Regionally know for horseback riding, Garvin Park has three campgrounds, and numerous shelters and open space; providing peaceful locations to relax. Garvin Park attracts visitors as diverse as its environment for public recreation.



Opened in 2016, Twin Lakes Park is Lyon County's newest park; nestled between East Twin and West Twin lakes. Two campsites are able to be reserved. Twin Lakes Park came to fruition from the desire of a local landowner to leave a legacy with land he owned. Other area landowners have also sold land to the County for future generations to enjoy camping and recreation in the area.

Twin Lakes Park exists from partnerships, generous donations, and Clean Water Land & Legacy Amendment Funding. A plan for future campground development is in the planning stages. Lyon County hopes to secure additional State Legacy Grant funding in the future for expanding this beautiful park area.
