Oracle State Park

In 1902 Neil Kannally arrived in Oracle from Illinois. Moving to the area for relief from tuberculosis, he homesteaded the land that would later become the park. Later, other members of the Kannally family joined him. The ranch grew substantially over the next several years and eventually 1100 cattle grazed the land. In 1976, Lucille Kannally, the last surviving family member, donated the land to the Defenders of Wildlife who later transferred the property to the State Parks Board. The park offers educational programming to organized groups by advanced reservation.

The programs are designed to be participatory, educational and fun. All programs are led by highly trained park staff. Groups are introduced to various topics while experiencing the park firsthand. Everyone is given a chance to hike the trails, discover the plants and animals and learn about the world in which they live. Programs are offered Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings during the school year. There is a charge of $1 per student for the education programs. All programs are scheduled in advance.

Contact the park to obtain program brochures or to schedule a program.
