The beautiful sandstone cliffs overlooking Sugar Creek and numerous shady ravines provide the backdrop for your journey through this nature lover’s paradise.
Also on the property is Pine Hills Nature Preserve, which affords spectacular topography for those willing to take a fairly long hike.
From November-March, Shades State Park is open for day use only (8 a.m. until dusk). All visitors must leave the park at dusk. There is no camping available. Overnight camping is available at Turkey Run State Park just 15 miles to the southwest. Turkey Run also has an inn and cabins. In the event of heavy snow or ice, the property management may delay opening the gate to accommodate for snow removal efforts. Contact the property if you have further questions.
