  • So many pretty trails in this state park. We were just day visitors but would love to come back and stay overnight and enjoy other amenities. Indiana has beautiful state parks and this is a gem!  more »
  • Trails are well marked and wind through beautiful terrain. We walked in canyons, along creeks and among tall trees. and for those not afraid of heights, climb the fire tower.  more »
  • Was very busy(expected for a beautiful labor day). Even though it was super busy, the park planned very well by being staffed with friendly and expedient workers. It was clean considering all the foot traffic. Very nice park. Highly recommend. We will be returning on a less busy weekend!
  • Indiana State parks are beautiful! A great place to go and get into nature. Spending time outdoors is so nice. Many trails to check out, plenty to see and do. Cabins...Canyon Inn. No reason not to come check this out! Tucked away in a nice little southern Indiana town.
