The Sand Hills State Park is a state park, recreation area, and natural area in Hutchinson, Kansas. It is located on the north end of the Hutchinson Dune Tract.

The Sand Hills State Park was created as a means to preserve the sand dunes, woodlands, wetlands, and grasslands found in the area. The site was originally owned by the Kansas State Industrial Reformatory and was acquired by the Kansas Park and Resources Authority in 1974. It grew to its current size through the donation of the Dillon family and acquisition of additional lands from the Federal Land and Water Funds.

Visitors of the Sand Hills State Park can enjoy hiking, hunting, and horseback riding at the site. There are eight different trails at the park that pass through various natural environments, making such activities fun and exciting.
