Parks and Recreation

Parks, Golf, Biking, and Hiking...

When you need a place to get away from it all, beautiful parks — from state acreage to city gems to tucked-away treasures — await your recreational pursuits. Biking, fishing, camping, hiking, canoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and disk golf are just a few of the activities available for your family's enjoyment. There is even an award-winning dog park to entertain your canine pals.

For golf enthusiasts, Freeport's 36-hole Park Hills Golf Course, along with several others in the area, make Stephenson County a sought out destination for those that love the links. Take a closer look at some of the golfing venues and other recreational sites:
