Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We enjoyed a sandwich overlooking the mill area. Very good! The sandwiches on fresh baked bread are a must!

    We visited the 31 Parke County covered bridges over a 2 day span about a week after peak fall foliage. The weather was perfect, and on this bright and still day, the mirror like surface of Little Raccoon Creek afforded us a remarkable view of a national treasure. This Single Span Burr Arch Truss, constructed in 1904 by Joseph A. Daniels and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, sits alongside the Bridgeton Road (paved), about halfway between Rockville and Bridgeton. One of nine covered bridges built by Daniels in Parke County, it is #10 on the Parke County Covered Bridge Map. If you are taking pictures, it is best seen in the afternoon from the highway bridge to the south. With the leaves down, fall and winter afford terrific photo opportunities.

    This beautiful Single Span Burr Arch Truss was the first of the dozen covered bridges built by Joseph A. Britton in Parke County (1882). It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Spanning Sugar Creek, today it sits alongside Narrows Road on the eastern edge of Turkey Run State Park, having been bypassed in 1960. It is #37 on the Parke County Covered Bridge Map.

    This Single Span Burr Arch Truss design was built by Joseph A. Britton in 1883 to span Leatherwood Creek. It is located about six miles west of Rockville, just off US36 on Country Road 4. It is normally visited in tandem with the nearby Phillips covered bridge. This was the third of Britton's twelve covered bridges in Parke County, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. It is #23 on the Parke County Covered Bridge Map.

    There's a visitor center in Rockville where you can get a map of all the covered bridge locations. There's different colored loops for each area & we did the black route on a rainy Sunday.

    Follow the black arrows down Bridgeton Road. This particular bridge is on a gravel county road - 400South. It's not too far off the route.

    Be aware that some of these bridges are drive through & not only buggies, but cars can zip through. This is one of those bridges.

    Crooks Covered Bridges is actually before this one on Wimmer Road. It's on the left & looks like it's in a field from the road, but there's a gravel drive leading to it.

    Both bridges are very picturesque.

    Built by Joseph J. Daniels in 1867 and still in use, this is the second longest surviving covered bridge in Parke County with a footprint of 279 feet (#5 on the Covered Bridge Map). The unusual Double Span Double Burr Arch Truss carries Mansfield Road across Big Raccoon Creek. There is a picnic table alongside the creek, but if you come during the festival, be prepared to pay for parking. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, this is one of nine covered bridges erected by Daniels in Parke County.

    This Single Span Burr Arch Truss bridge was constructed in 1920 by Joseph A. Britton and his son Eugene. It carries County Road 130E across Little Raccoon Creek. Still in use, the bridge is best approached by turning south from the Rockville-Bridgeton road on CR 130E, which is paved on the northern end. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, this is #14 on the Parke County Covered Bridge Map. Here you can walk under the bridge and examine the structure in detail.

    This Single Span Burr Arch Truss was built by J.A. Britton in 1917 to carry what is now County Road 800N across Rush Creek. Access is easy via the paved surface of County Road 450N, which is just to the west. #29 on the Parke County Covered Bridge Map, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
    In Covered Bridges Today, Brenda Krekeler rather enigmatically writes that "the bridge offers its best appearance when the leaves are gone" (p. 86). Absolutely! With the leaves down, on a dark and gloomy day, you will wonder if you have somehow been transported to Sleepy Hollow! Is it Ichabod Crane whose horse quickly approaches ... or is it the Headless Horseman?

    The Crooks covered bridge is situated on CR225E (Crooks Bridge Road), a few hundred yards to the east of Bridgeton Road. The approach is on a well maintained gravel surface. Constructed in 1856 by Henry Wolfe to span Little Raccoon Creek, it is one of the two oldest surviving bridges in Parke County. Wolfe actually built 11 covered bridges in 5 counties between 1838 and 1860, but only 4 survive. This is a really nice example of the Single Span Burr Arch Truss design, which you can examine up close, and photograph from the modern bypass road just to the east of the bridge. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. #12 on the Parke County Covered Bridge Map.
