Located on the southwest edge of Fairfield, Jefferson County Park is Jefferson County Conservation’s most widely used park.
Originally 117 acres, Jefferson County Park has grown to become 227 acres through several land acquisitions over the years. Jefferson County Park contains seven miles of hiking and biking trails which wind through a diversity of landscapes including: timber, prairie, wetlands, prairie savannas, and ponds.
The 75-foot Swinging Bridge is a local favorite along with the quiet 24 site campground and the Picnic Area which has three reservable shelters. The campground is open from May through the end of October. The Jefferson County Conservation Office and Nature Center are also located in this park.
The park is connected to the Fairfield Loop Trail through the Cedar View Trail allowing campers to ride the 16-mile loop trail without driving to an access point.
