In the spring, parts of the western area of the park, closest to the Fox River, flood and provide terrific sunset reflections.

June 17 Beautiful and Well maintained Park! by Penny
We go here several times a year for picnicking and hiking and bird watching!. Good trails and a nice lake area. Interesting trail areas.
March 1 Great park, unhappy staff
Moraine Hills is a beautiful park. But the staff have been rather unfriendly. In one case, a staff person was outright rude. My wife and I have had many long walks there, but on one day we made the mistake of staying a few minutes after the closing time. Despite our sincere apologies and the fact we had never done this before, he treated us as criminals and told us he reported our vehicle plates to the state police. If we did it again, we would have to call them and pay a fine to get out. I fully understand the need to be out by closing time,and for staff to tell us not to do it again. but its not right to be so hostile and unprofessional towards taxpaying patrons for a first time offense which was a unintentional.

April 3 Do you have Pasque Flowers at MHSP? by Don Gustafson
If so, when can I expect them to bloom?
October 5 A great place to ride a bike by Randy Rigby
This is a great place to ride a bike or hike. The trails curve around the moraine hills so every hill and low area provides a fresh vista. Lots of wildlife, birds, fox, squirrels, to punctuate the travel. This is a clean, well kept park.
May 9 Great For Families by Lindsay Kleitsch
My husband and I really enjoyed this park for our walks together. I liked the fact that when you go farther back into the park, by the lake, you can walk all the way under Lily Lake Road and over to the McHenry Dam area for more trails.
