By: Tony White From the smallest, coming in at 165 acres, to the largest, at almost 16,000 acres, each of Indiana’s state parks is a treasure. If you read my blog from November you’ll remember one way I spend weekends is camping. Many of these weekends have been spent in one of Indiana’s State Parks. As I looked over the list, I realized I’ve only been to about half of our State Parks. I guess I now have a summer project. If you haven’t been to one of our State Parks they really are pretty magnificent. You should really plan to make a day of one of them. I have been to other states’ state parks and for the most part they don’t hold a candle to what we have here in the Hoosier state. If camping isn’t your thing, there are plenty of activities offered at the State Parks. Picnicking, hiking, biking, mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, swimming, tennis, boating, archery, horseshoe, volleyball, waterskiing, basketball, hunting, water safari, paddle boats, wildlife viewing, canoeing, kayaking, row-boating, shopping, eating, tobogganing, are just a few of the other possibilities. There isn’t a better value for your money. Entry is only $5.00 per carload. Umm, yes, I said carload! Better yet, you can get a year pass for only $40.00. I challenge you to find a better deal anywhere. Check out entrance fees here. So pick a park and get out and enjoy!
