Quail Hollow State Park covers a total area of 701 acres of land and three acres of water in Stark County, Ohio. The park is right between Akron City and Canton City, which are in the east-central part of Ohio. The exact address of the park is 13480 Congress Lake Avenue, Hartville, Ohio 44632.
The land where the park sits was previously owned by Conrad Brumbaugh who built his first home in the area where the parkland is situated. The area was later on used as a hunting camp and eventually became a public park in 1975. One of the special features at the park today is the preserved 1920s home of railroad entrepreneur, H.B. Stewart. The home is a large 40-room manor house that includes a large house yard area.
