About

Sunset Hill Farm County Park is a lovely 235-acre park where you'll find a primitive campground, several miles of trails, picnic and play areas, demonstration crops, and an amphitheater. The park's hiking trails traverse both prairie and woodland, where you can see birds and other wildlife. A working dairy farm until 1978, the park still grows demonstration crops as part of its educational mission to cultivate respect and understanding for earth's natural resources. The park offers scheduled naturalist programs, wagon rides, and public events. Camping for GROUPS ONLY. The fees are $2 person plus a $45 refundable damage deposit.
