  Sunset Park in Worthington

Sunset Park lies on the SW side of Lake Okabena overlooking the bay.

It is next to Olson Campground and is accessible to Olson Campground via a footbridge between Sunset Park and Olson Campgrounds.

It is an excellent place to load a boat because of the extra-large parking area for cars and trailers while you are on the lake.

Campers at Olson Campgrounds can park their boat-trailers here, and get back and forth from the campgrounds to the boating area via the footbridge.

A fishing dock and shelterhouse are there in a scenic setting, especially at sunset, as its name portrays.

Offshore a ways is one of the four deep spots in Lake Okabena. This can be seen on the lake depth chart

HISTORY

This area was donated by industrialist E.D. Olson and his wife Bella G. Olson in 1945 and designated as Sunset Park in the deed.

The area across the road from the lake (approx. 5.7 acres) is part of the Olson Park property, but has been only referred to as part of Sunset Park.

Installed new floating dock 2008, moved existing to Centennial beach area.
