DID YOU KNOW?
The Indiana State Park System is a wonderful legacy of the state centennial celebration in 1916. Starting with McCormick’s Creek State Park, some of the state’s most beautiful natural resources have been set aside to be enjoyed by Hoosiers young and old. The 2020 Recreation Guide, published by the Department of Natural Resources, lists 24 state parks, 8 lakes, 15 state forests, 7 state park inns, 24 fish and wildlife areas, and 21 nature preserves. The Guide is a wonderful tool for those who wish to take advantage of Indiana’s rich natural heritage and to learn about special events through the year.
