Headquarters for the Plymouth County Conservation Board, Hillview is conveniently located one mile west of Hinton on county road C60. The 580-acre Hillview Recreation Area contains a mixture of open grasslands, reconstructed prairie, oak woodlands, and wildlife habitat. The park is also a place to camp, swim, and hunt as well as hike, bike and ride a horse. Be sure to check out the elk herd and playgrounds while you are visiting. 

From May 1st - October 14th campers can enjoy staying at one of our 3 campgrounds. Each campground offers different amenities.

During the fall and winter, October 15 - January 10, parts of Hillview are open to public hunting. Should you choose to use the trail system during hunting seasons, please make yourself visible by wearing blaze orange and be aware of your surroundings. 

The Center for Outdoor Learning or the large picnic shelter may make a perfect meeting location for your next event. Both facilities are located on the south side of the park. These facilities can be reserved for a fee. The picnic shelter can used on a first come first served basis if is not rented.
