OverviewArrow 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
