Hillsdale lake was completed in 1982, and Hillsdale State Park officially opened in 1994.
A big variety of outdoor recreation experiences close to metropolitan Kansas City sets this park apart from others. Great lake access and fishing opportunities along with a new marina facility, attract water-goers. RV camping, and extensive equestrian and hiking trails are for the land-inclined. A soon-to-be shooting range, and radio-controlled airplane field are among the facilities for specialists.
