Sand Hills State Park News

New projects are horse manure bunks and pads for the dumpsters to set on.  Future plans include a shelter and year-round bathroom.  We are working on the bunks and pads now but are hopeful to start the other plans soon.

Trail permits are no longer required at Sand Hills State Park. It is now like other state parks in Kansas where a vehicle permit is required on vehicles entering the park or parking in the lots.

Another future endeaver will be cabins. We are looking forward to having 3 cabins available for use some time soon. Plans are under way at this time. Be sure to check out the cabin at the State Fair to see what the cabins will resemble.
