Sand Hills State Park, Hutchinson

#8 of 9 in Things to do in Hutchinson
Sand Hills State Park is located north of the city of Hutchinson in Reno County, Kansas, United States.
In 1974, the Kansas Park and Resources Authority acquired 640acres from the Kansas State Industrial Reformatory. This section of land became the 22nd state park in Kansas by a House Bill signed by Governor Robert Docking. Shortly after this transfer, the Dillon Family of Hutchinson donated an adjacent 320acres. With the donation, the Kansas Park and Resources Authority was able to acquire another adjacent 163acres with Federal Land and Water Funds, thus establishing the present 1123acres Sand Hills State Park.
The park is located east of Kansas State Highway 61 about 6miles north of Hutchinson in northeastern Reno County, Kansas. It is situated along the northern edge of the Hutchinson Dune Tract, which consists of rolling sand dunes from 10to high that are mostly stabilized by prairie grass vegetation. The dunes were formed by windblown deposits of sand transported from the Arkansas River at the end of the last glacial period.
