O’Leno State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"O’Leno State Park has a strange name derivation. First there was the town of Keno, which was founded near where the Santa Fe River sinks into the limestone below. Keno is a card game of chance, so the town’s religious folk decided to rename the town to Leno, to save its reputation. Leno soon disappeared after the railroad passed it by. People referred to the area as “ol’ Leno,” thus the name for the park, O’Leno.

The Santa Fe River was the reason for the town, and now the river is the reason for the park. The area between the river sink and river rise has been a major crossing point for as long as man has been around. Many who crossed camped in the area; now you can, too. The two park campgrounds, Dogwood and Magnolia, serve tent campers well."
