About this Location

The Smith Tract parking lot at the “Brown Barn” on the east side of Kilby Road provides views of the large gravel pit to the south, which is not park property. Birders also view this gravel pit from the Whitewater Township Senior Center fields off Dry Fork Road on the opposite corner of the pit (see map below).

Kilby Ponds are located in western Hamilton County. Take I-275 Kilby Road Exit # 21. From the cloverleaf exit ramp turn left (north) onto Kilby Road and go north on Kilby about 1.7 miles to a small Parking Lot on the right (east) side of the road. Be advised that this parking lot is poorly marked. There is a Hamilton County Park District sign, but it can be easily missed. Look for a beige-colored utility barn that sits a bit off the road.

The Kilby Road Tract of the Kilby Road Gravel Pits is nearby on the west side of Kilby Road.

No restroom facilities.
