Richfield Heritage Preserve, ​formerly Camp Crowell Hilaka, is Ohio's Hidden Treasure. In the 1920s & 30s it was the home of inventor Jim Kirby, who constructed a patented lake, a hydroelectric mill, rustic home,, and a spring-loaded dance hall. The Cleveland Girl Scouts bought the land and the adjoining Neal Fruit Farm and enclosed it. In 2015, the camp was purchased by the citizens of Richfield and is now a public park. Beautiful hiking trails. Some buildings closed pending restoration. The Lodge (former Gund Hall) and some shelters available for rent.
