This is a state park that is sometimes also known as Fort Ben and occupies a part of the Benjamin Fort Harrison. It includes a former military training camp, Civilian Conservation Corps Camp, the World War II Prisoners of War camp, etc.
The park was opened in 1906 by Theodore Roosevelt to honor the former President Benjamin Harrison. This also served as a very important part of the next World War and also of the Cold War. This was the first such fort that housed everything from a military camp to a training school.
The park is also known to be an “all- day park” with the night features that included the Fort Gold Resort, etc. there are also a number of good hiking trails in here. The Harrison biking trail that runs among the wildflower growth of the campus is another attraction.
