If you have young kids in the Indy area, or visiting the Indy area, this park is great. The trails are nice and pretty easy, there are multiple playground areas and huge sledding hill that can even be a fun challenge for kids when there is no snow. The saddle barn has pony rides for a few bucks and the kids liked that a lot. Fall Creek, that runs through the park, is always a good place to skip rocks. On our last hike we came across some deer and the kids loved it.

This is a beautifully-kept park near Indianapolis. Trails, grounds, and picnic areas are well-maintained.

I think this is the only Indiana State Park I have went to that was a total disappointment. My 3yr. old grandson son said it was "Boring". This seems to be more a city park that has very little to do. We actually spent about 5 min. in the building the consider a Museum.

I loved that the food was steaming on my plate. Service was very old school even in the banquet setting. It felt calming.
