***As of May 1, 2020: Please see the following notice regarding the State Farm Park for summer 2020.

COVID-19 has impacted everyone. The health and wellness of State Farm employees remains a top priority. After a great deal of consideration, the difficult decision was made to close State Farm Park for the 2020 season. As a result, State Farm Day Camp and Employee Leagues have been cancelled and park activities and amenities will not be available (i.e. pool, mini golf, tennis courts, walking paths and fishing). Many use and enjoy the park amenities, State Farm wants to do their part to help minimize the exposure to large group settings where social distancing may be difficult. They believe that taking this precautionary step will help fight the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

The park entrance will be closed. Therefore, filling out emails for park cards, shelter reservations, and guest access should not be submitted for this year 2020. The forms have been removed from our website for the year.
