Sam Parr State Park

Campground Details

Open: Open all year

For several decades the residents of Jasper County worked for a state park, assisted and encouraged by a former resident and conservationist, Sam Parr. In 1960, 72 acres of land were acquired by the Department of Natural Resources and the Jasper County Conservation Area became a reality. Additional acquisitions have brought the total acreage to 1,180, including a 183-acre lake.

Boats with maximum 10 hp motors are allowed on the lake, and canoes are popular. Boat dock rentals are available. Fishing access and parking is also available on the east side of the lake via a county road.

Facilities at Sam Parr include four picnic areas for day use, shelters in all areas, more than 2 miles of foot trails, 13 miles of equestrian trails.

Check with the site manager for upland game species and hunting dates.
