Visit the Nature Center
Hike the trails.

Take a dip in the swimming pool.
Or play a game of tennis or basket ball.
Canoeing, kayaking and fishing are available nearby on the beautiful west fork of the White River.
You might even want to drive into Bloomington, Indiana and tour the city that plays home to Indiana University. If you are lucky, you might find that you are there when an opera, concert, ballet etc. are being performed at I.U.
Another state park that is close by is Spring Mill State Park. Spring Mill is home to a Pioneer Village.

The sluice from the mill runs through the village from the river to the power the mill where products are sold.
When you leave the mill, you can visit other log cabin style shops along the walk.
John and I found their vegetable and herb gardens. A Indiana Native flower garden graced the center of the village.
You will find caves to tour by foot or by boat..
An addition to the park is the Virgil I. (Gus) Grissom Memorial. Gus Grissom was the second man in space and one of the astronauts that died in a spacecraft fire. Grissom is a hometown hero of Mitchell, Indiana, located near the entrance to the park.
Indiana is more than corn and soybean fields that we pass on the interstates. Take time to stop and explore.
Thanks for visiting the blog today. Finally, the Amazon link finally works thanks to our computer guru, Rick.
God bless you and your activities today.
Great parks! I love the cave tour!ReplyDelete
We did not know about the cave tour until I researched the park....Things for us to do when we come home in better weather.Delete
Go to the race car dirt track just S of Bloomington. We drive all the way from MI to go there occasionally. Lots of fun and you can park your RV right there and spend the night.ReplyDelete
Thank you, this is good for my readers to know.Delete
