Ouabache State Park, Bluffton

Ouabache is difficult to spell, but easy to pronounce. Simply say 'Wabash'...just like the river that forms the southwest boundary for the park. This is the French spelling of an Indian word, so don't be surprised to hear some folks call it o-ba-chee.

  • I have ran Parlor City Trot Half Marathon the last 4 years. The camp site is nice, the park is truly beautiful and well kept. Love the woods and trails. 
  • Quite nice. The Bison (state animal) do look sad but that is nature NOT bad treatment, it is their molting season nearly the entire time the park is open (spring to fall). In spring they lose the winter coat (molt) in autumn they patchily grow their winter coat. Indiana bison are naturally thinner than on TV and in paintings, they're a different breed. Please, keep all that in mind when reading the other comments. Pronounced "Wabash" but most people will have no idea which park you're taking about unless you call it "Oobachee". If you like walking or biking whether on road or through woods you'll like it here. There's a pool but they charge even more for that (which is price gouging in my opinion). I've never even seen the tower (I'm afraid of heights.) Driving through in winter I had to stop for a herd of about 30 deer. It was one of the coolest things I've ever seen.
  • Went thinking a little State park and found others knew this was a jewel. I saw people that had biked from Bluffton on bike friendly roadways. We were there on a hot day but were able to get about 8 mile of hiking most of it in the cover of trees. Trails were lined with the most incredible yellow flowers.
  • Very bike friendly. Trails all over the park and also a trail along the river that leads you into Bluffton. Campsites are large and all have asphalt pads. Loved our experience.
  • Nice park, can fish, boat, swim, hike, and see buffalo. Could use a bit more to do put pretty good for what you can find in this area.
  • Indiana's hidden gem. Lovely trails, wheel chair friendly, quiet and just beautiful.
