Welcome to Clay County Conservation
Clay County Conservation Board's goal is to promote a safe, friendly environment for all to enjoy. A multitude of activities exist within the 23 parks and areas of the Clay County Conservation Department: camping, hiking, educational programs, hunting, fishing, boating, swimming, picnicking and much, much more! For additional information about programs and how to reserve a cabin or picnic shelter in one of our parks, please call the Clay County Conservation Board.
Trout are released at Scharnberg Park! Head out to the park and catch some trout!
This is part of the Iowa DNR's Urban Lakes Trout Program, which is an effort to introduce trout fishing to more people across the state. The lake is open to fish by all individuals with an Iowa fishing license and trout stamp.
