Located just three miles west of Tiffin on Highway 6, F.W. Kent Park encompasses 1,052 acres and includes a plethora of recreational opportunities, including 86 camp sites (with modern restrooms, shower facilities and playgrounds), fishing spots, trails, picnic shelters and more. The beach is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day (Sept. 7) and also overlooks the dam. The park is also home to the headquarters of the Johnson County Conservation Board and Conservation Education Center, as well as The Youth Group Camp, which is available for organized youth groups with day or overnight usage.
