Thousand Hills State Park is a mere 3 miles away from the KCOM campus. “The park's central feature is the lake, which boasts a variety of recreational opportunities, including swimming, fishing, boating and skiing. While the reservoir supplies water to the community, the park's natural features recall a time when woodlands and savannas covered northern Missouri. Visitors can experience some of these natural wonders by hiking the park's trails. Hiking, mountain bicycling and nature study are popular on-land activities.”
