  • Always enjoy horse back riding here! The trails are nice and you don't need shoes. It's a nice, easy, 2 hour ride.

  • The main park itself is well maintained and looks good. I went for the mountain biking trail which was described on several websites as one of the best trails in Indiana. This could not be farther from the truth. The course is about 10 miles long and I would describe 8+ miles of it as absolutely unmaintained. The trail took me about 90 minutes and I spent the majority of the time getting hit in the face by untrimmed trees and thrashed by chest high weeds. There are also several areas with exposed rebar that could result in serious injury if you fall there. Overall the trail has potential, but clearly is not used often (I only saw one other rider on a Saturday morning) and is definitely not maintain. Will not be going back. Update: Also ended up with a ton of poison ivy across my legs, so moving this trail down to one star.

  • Great park. Campground was clean and quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful.

  • Beautiful scenery but not nearly as scenic as the Hoosier National Forest, not as much elevation change. The trail was extremely narrow and overgrown, easy to get ticks. Also, would be very hard for mountain bikers to ride this trail with all the overgrown shrubs hanging over the trail. Several places with old trash on side of trail, including old tires, rusty pans and pipes and plastic containers. Park charges 5 Dollars entrance fee, so they should at least cut back all the shrubs on the trail, so the shrubs don't block trail. Also, maybe organize a volunteer clean up event, to remove the old tires and trash. Won't be going back. I prefer hiking in the HNF.

  • Love it. The trails give you the rugged hiking you may be after. Fishing has been great this year.
