Ouabache State Park, Bluffton
(4.4/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • There rules are stupid. My mom came for an hour at 930 pm when it was quite, the camp ranger came and told me mom that she had to move. He also told me that I had to move my car. To 5 campsites down. I didn't like leaving my new car that far away from where we was camping. If a little kid came up and scratched it with a stick who's going to pay for it. Also there isn't anything showing on the rules where we can only have one car on the site. Which we also have my bf truck on the site because he had to pull the camper! We would love to be able to camper her more, but I think we are done being pestered by the camp ranger!! So sad!!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Have been going to Ouabache State Park for 30 years. Great park for camping, swimming, fishing, running. Or just come and see the Buffalo.
  • Got to see the baby buffalo. This is a fun place to explore, there's a small entrance fee. The flying insects were too thick to continue down some off beat trails.
