State Parks of Indiana

An Array of Hoosier State Parks & Recreation


IN Attractions

White River State Park

Operated by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, there are 25 total state parks in the Hoosier State.

Explore Fort Harrison State Park in the Indianapolis area of the state. Established in 1996, Fort Harrison State Park is less than 15 miles northeast of downtown, and an easy drive from nearby Anderson or Gas City. You’ll play 18 holes at the Fort Golf, hike any one of the three trails taking you around the park, and there’s horseback riding. Don’t miss out on the Harrison Trace Trail, a paved path perfect for casual hikers.

Closer to downtown Indianapolis is White River State Park. Home to the Indianapolis Zoo, White River State Park is 250 acres of sterling Indianapolis real estate. Make the scenic drive in from Martinsville, or Plainfield.

Near Lafayette you’ll find Prophetstown State Park. A spring or summer visit to Prophetstown State Park will yield tremendous picnicking opportunities, hiking adventures, and plenty of native American history – the park is named for Tenskwatawa, a Shawnee religious leader. Prophetstown State Park opened in 2004 and is easily accessible from Monticello and Peru.

As you explore northern Indiana, make sure to include Pokagon State Park on your travel agenda. As the state park set farthest to the northeast, Pokagon is easily accessed from Kendallville. With nearly 1,260 acres of parkland, hiking and biking is popular, as is Lake James, which yields a wealth of swimming, boating, and fishing.

Set in near Fort Wayne and Kendallville, the Chain O’ Lakes State Park is home to 11 recreational lakes and some great outdoor fun. Hikers enjoy the park for its 10 miles of hiking trails, while those who brought their swimsuits enjoy a quick dip in one of the many lakes. The winter season brings cross-country skiing to the area, so suit up and head to northeastern Indiana.

Break out that rod and reel, we’re heading to northern Indiana. Visitors are encouraged to explore the Ouabache State Park – set right along the Wabash River just south of Fort Wayne. Choose from fishing and boating, hiking and biking, or a friendly game of basketball, volleyball or tennis. Bring a picnic lunch, let the kids loose at one of the many playground areas, or take a walk through the nature center. Cast out for some largemouth bass and crappie in Kunkel Lake, or spend the day hiking down the six-mile Ouabache Trail.

Head to Clarksville for outdoor adventure done right. Check out Lapping Park – with more than 300 acres of playgrounds, hiking trails, tennis and basketball courts – or visit the famed Falls of the Ohio State Park. Make your way to Dale for the Lincoln State Park, or take a stroll through the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Vincennes. In southwestern Indiana, Evansville plays host to many urban parks, or check out the 200-acre Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve.

In Clarksville, visit the Falls of the Ohio State Park for a look at the Jeffersonville Limestone in the many exposed fossil beds of the Clarksville area. Set on the Ohio River, just miles from Kentucky’s own Louisville, Falls of the Ohio State Park encourages visitors to explore the fossil beds, hike down the Woodland Loop Trail, or check out the interpretive center. There’s no better way to get to know outdoor Indiana than the Falls of the Ohio National Wildlife Conservation Area right in southern Indiana.

Be sure to check out Lincoln State Park for everything from boating and fishing to hiking and picnicking. Open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, Lincoln State Park brings summertime fun like swimming areas and nature centers to you. Skip down the four-mile James Gentry Trail, or take a leisurely stroll down the two-mile Weber Lake Trail.
