  • Fall is a great time to spend at any State Park! Went for Halloween and it was spooktactular! They had plenty of things on the agenda for all old and young to enjoy. Great trails and visitor center. Recommend you take time to visit this great state park you will not be disappointed.
  • nice park, only problem I have is that when the water park isn't open, there isn't much for small kids to do. The nature center needs a play set or playground. They aren't that expensive. I MTB a lot and we take our grand baby, is nice for him to have things to do with his grand mother. Highly recommend this park set up some play sets for toddlers and small children. If not for this I would have given it a five.
  • Visited on a rainy day and found some of the trails impassable. The park offers some challenging hiking as well as offering access to the Adventure Hiking Trail (AHT). This was a nice way to see the park and add part of a 25 mile rugged hiking trail to your adventure.
  • By far my favorite Indiana State Park. Great camping and hiking.
  • Great forestry, but entry fee has gone up and made it a little bit to pricey to go to often.
