Beautifully situated along the Beaver Creek in Northwest Kansas, Atwood is a forward-thinking High Plains community whose doors are always open to visitors, returning Alumni and new residents alike. We are a people of strong pioneer heritage, with values such as neighbor helping neighbor and a positive, can-do attitude. Expect a friendly smile when you arrive!
Atwood is an established agricultural community. But we are also home to thriving, long-term businesses and promising new entrepreneurial ventures…and we are growing, as we become increasingly known for our family-friendly environment. We focus on maintaining quality schools, where academics are enhanced by excellent programs of fine arts, vocational skills, athletics and music. Community programs also offer a variety of educational and recreational experiences, from 4-H and Scouts to gymnastics, kids wrestling, swim team and other activities. A new youth center highlights our town’s commitment to providing a safe, healthy environment for our kids.
The centerpiece of our town is beautiful Lake Atwood, whose recreational offerings and serene beauty enrich the lives of young and old. Its golf course, baseball diamond, nature trail, walking path, playground, picnic areas, camping sites and RV hookups draw locals and visitors alike.
