Osage Hills State Park offers 1,100 acres with picnic tables and shelters, 20 semi-modern RV campsites, 16 tent sites and 8 cabins, hiking trails, ball field and tennis court. Abundant fishing for bass, crappie, catfish and perch can be found in Lookout Lake, or in Sand Creek at the south end of the park. Area has good opportunities for fall foliage viewing. RV sites have electric/water and our facility has modern bath houses. Rowboat rentals are available.

Beautiful trail and park!

Nice trail with elevation changes. Weaves around a steam that didn't have much water in late October, will definitely return in the spring to see the water flowing. We didn't see any other traffic on the trail.

This is a scenic mountain bike trail that can be hiked. It is a rocky with some elevation change. This is definitely not a mere walking path. There are a few water crossings which were easily crossed by stepping on rocks in mid October. There would likely be more water in the spring. We hiked on a Sunday afternoon and didn't see a hiker or mountain biker. Highly recommend!

Really love the secluded feel on the Osage Hills trails. I followed marked trails and unmarked side trails until I logged 6 miles and I enjoyed all of it. Beautiful scenery and well maintained paths.

The the park and facilities are well maintained and scenic. The hiking trails' landscape is diverse but poorly marked. Lake Trail and Overlook Trail are the most challenging (easy/moderate) but Creek Loop Trail and Falls Trail (easy) are the most picturesque. With our proclivity to go off trail and back tracking due to lack of signage, we hiked 8+ miles. We hiked in late June when the park was dry and the water flow was slow. I suspect the park and trails are even more scenic in the spring and fall when their is more water flowing. Cabins and camping are available for overnight guests.

Love it. little bit of everything on this loop but the best is the back of the loop where you can't hear anything but nature. There are some nice rock climbing spots also.

I have been coming to Osage Hills for the past 15 years and I enjoy hiking the trails every time I come!
