Indiana has avoided obtaining too many smaller properties that would be hard to manage, thus does not have as many state parks as other states.


Brown County State Park is located near Nashville in Brown County on 15,696 acres. The park opened in 1929 and is the state’s largest state park. There are approximately one and a half million visitors a year. There are two lakes in the park. One is Ogle Lake containing 17 acres in size and Strahl Lake which is 7 acres. The park has 70 miles of horse trails and 12 miles of hiking trails. Most people make it to the park during the fall to see the beautiful leaf changing. There are cabins, saddle barn, camping, mountain bike trail, nature center, playground, rental recreation building, shelter, an Olympic size swimming pool, tennis courts and Abe Martin Lodge. Remember to pack your sun care products like Blue Lizard Sunscreen and always wear good sunglasses like Calvin Klein or Nautica.


Charlestown State Park is located on 2,400 acres in Clark County Charlestown of the Ohio River. The park has trails that will take you through completely different surroundings including wetlands, creeks, forests, cliffs and fields. The trails can become quite challenging for hikers because there is a difference of 200 feet while hiking and at the present time there are no areas for backcountry camping. The trails are quite stunning with great nature areas.


The Clifty Inn is a place for visitors to stay and the Clifty Falls are spectacular to see. The park has facilities for RV’s and tents. For the family visitors there are picnic areas that are sheltered products on the market for children like Baby Blanket and Aveeno if you haven’t tried them already you might want to give them a try.
