  • We had a great day hiking here. We went on trail 2, which was a nice hike through the woods, and trail 5, which took us around a little church, cemetery, and old mill. They took some effort but were s...  read more »
  • Good place to spend a few hours or the whole day. We went to the area where Lincoln was raised and found it interesting. Amazing to think that the area your in once was the same area Abraham Lincoln w...  read more »
  • 3 seperate campsites for 16 people-including a 6 week old baby. We used the primitive camp sites, and were very happy with them. Of course, 3 members of our party are boy scouts, so we're accustomed t...  read more »
  • Nice park with small lake and beach area. Some decent trails and easy access the Abraham Lincoln boyhood home park area. Of course close to holiday world as well. We stayed at the family cabins, and while they are pretty good for state park cabins was not as clean or fresh smelling as we would have liked when we first got there (deducting 1 star from what I would have rated otherwise). As well the kitchen supplies were just a few pots/pans so bring everything else you might need. The screened front porch is really nice area to spend time. Park staff were helpful and friendly.
  • This State park offers wonderful hiking trails as well as cultural history. The Little Pigeon Creek Settlement is within the park boundary offering you a chance to see the area where Abraham Lincoln grew up. The base of the horse powered mill was an interesting find. Don't miss the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Plaza, this is a very visual informative monument for all ages and is right by convenient parking.
  • I love this State Park. It feels cozy and familiar to me. My family and I have stayed in the cabins before, but this time I was walking/hiking the trails while my daughter and a friend were at near by Holiday World for the day. The trails were quiet and easy to traverse. Take the number 4 or 6 to Weber Lake for a peaceful walk in the forest perhaps you'll encounter a train on the tracks which pass through the park. Trail number one is an easy hike around Lake Lincoln which was a bit busier since the beach, campground and fishing are located here. If you're feeling adventuresome, take the side trail up to the fire tower and enjoy the breezes and the view. And as always were bug repellent so you don't pick up a tick hitchhiker like I did - no worries he wasn't infected. Not a big deal just all part of being in the great outdoors, but take precautions and enjoy.
  • The DNR staff was very nice. DNR Official Michael, took us on a great tour.
  • Great state park! Beautiful lake with a very nice beach. Perfect for wading. Clean bathhouse. Hot showers. Only 5 minutes from holiday world.
