State Park
Fort Harrison State Park is a state park for many seasons for many reasons. Patrons may enjoy visiting the park all year round, especially in winter since Fort Harrison features the Sledding Hill, one of the biggest in this area. Spring is the season to walk with the woodland wildflowers in full bloom across the park. Summer is the perfect time for a canoe trip down Fall Creek, the major water feature that runs through the north side of Fort Harrison. Autumn brings warm, sunny days and breathtaking fall colors to this, the last forested corner left in Marion County. Enjoy The Fort Golf Course and for an overnight trip, stay at the Fort Harrison Inn and Conference Center.
A visit to Fort Harrison State Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Indianapolis travel itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • It's great having an easily accessible State Park pretty much in our backyard. We love the hiking trails and our son loves the playground. My husband and son plan to go fishing there soon, great stocked pond. We also love the horses! I think a guided horseback ride is on the agenda for this summer as well.
  • Great park near Indianapolis. They have some great ponds, camp sites, and many nice trails. We went for the annual outdoor and were able to enjoy archery, shotgun shooting, fishing and more.

  • Living downtown, I sometimes crave a treeline view over my skyline view. Fort Harrison State Park (or "Fort Ben" as it's called by the locals) was a beautiful place to see the falling leaves and changing colors of fall. I loved that it offered both paved trails and woodsy terran. Beware, though, the woodsy trails get quite muddy if there's been any rain so I'd recommended hiking boots for exploring these. You DO have to pay to get into the park but you're greeted by a ranger who offers you a map and guidance (if needed). Happy Trails!
  • The DNR did a wonderful job with all the fun parts to do with the family. The 4 wheeling was do much fun.
