Explore the spectacular limestone canyon, flowing creek, and scenic waterfalls that highlight Indiana’s first state park. Hike trails featuring diverse forest trees, spicebush, and native wildflowers, including a trail through Wolf Cave Nature Preserve and an accessible trail at the recently renovated nature center. Experience history as you climb the fire tower, use shelter houses or cross the stone arch bridge created by the Civilian Conservation Corps, or examine the historic Statehouse Quarry near White River, which furnished limestone used for the Indianapolis Statehouse. Relax in the lobby of Canyon Inn, open to all park visitors, or watch birds from the dining room porch or stay in the inn overnight. Catch cultural events such as concerts in the park amphitheater or attend the several special events hosted annually at the park. McCormick’s Creek State Park offers active enjoyment through all seasons of the year.

  • Beautiful park with waterfall, cave and well marked trails. Plenty of benches to relax in nature and to rest as I am not an intense hiker. Will go back!  more »
  • McCormicks Creek is a beautiful, clean and quiet gem for relaxation. We live close and are there often. Be sure and visit the Olympic size pool.  more »
  • Loved this park! It has alot of great trails with beautiful scenery. Trail 10 was a bit tricky, though. The water was rushing, so we couldn't cross. This is definitely on my top places to hike list!  more »
