County Park Memberships Receive a Refresh

There have been some exciting changes at your favorite county parks since membership levels were last updated in 2021, so our team decided it was time for an overhaul that better reflects our offerings. Memberships may be purchased online or at any Pottawattamie County park pay station.

We are not able to honor canoe/kayak rentals, lift tickets, camping, or cabin stays until you receive your certificate and can present it on-site. Thank you for understanding!
