Harlan County Lake

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Alt Names

Harlan County Reservoir, Cedar Point, Cedar Run ATV Trail, Cedar Run ATV/Motorcycle Trail

Last Known StatusTemporarily Closed

This park has about 9 miles of trails that wind through trees and hilly, grassy meadows. The trails are two-way, so use caution.

Recently some improvements have been made which consisted of adding signs, fencing, tree maintenance and adding new marked trails (all old trails are off-limits). The area is only open during daylight hours and camping is not permitted. The trail is open year-round but may close temporarily due to inclement weather or for trail maintenance so check the hotline at (308) 799-2105 x 2 for current updates.

The nearby lake offers several campgrounds however machines must be hauled to and from the staging area as there is no direct trail access.

Note that this means even if you have a toy hauler and you need to unload to put your bunk beds down, you won’t be allowed to. Bikes must stay on the trailer in all campgrounds except Patterson’s.
