“Beautiful countryside a Must to see”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

It takes awhile to find the bridges-suggest getting a map! The bridges maps are more helpful than you might think.

“Parke County Rockville Covered Bridge Festival”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

This festival begins in Rockville around the court house in the center of town. It has been there since 1957. It always begins the 2nd friday in october. There are 5 driving routes which you take you through different towns to see the covered bridges. Some of the towns like Bridgeton set up yard sales as you drive through. The town of Rockville has so many vendors around the court house inside huge tents you walk through. Stores stay open in town and have special deals also. There are lots of food vendors in the lawn area with great food and tables to sit and eat. Plan a weekend here in order to drive the different routes and stop for pictures and shopping. Each route is about 30 miles but takes awhile to drive because your on country roads. Find a place to stay months or even a year in advance. The places fill up fast because of this festival. The starting point to this is ohio street in Rockville Indiana and really worth the trip. We took our 4 year old and he loved it, seeing the bridges and walking across them. Stopping to look at the sites along the way. Rockville has my vote, this is the 4th time we've done this trip.

“The great outdoors”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We went just after the festival was over but they were still open for people to see. The parking was good, free and less crowds. A lot of history with the feel of what the past would be like. The old rustic bridge and store were great. The changing of the trees only added to the beauty. They had port a potties but were clean.

“Small town Great Crafts Great food”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

This is a small town, so parking and walking tight. Only port a potties (but kept clean). Pay for parking. Out of all the towns for this festival Bridgeton has always been a favorite for me and anyone I take. Best crafts around. Get there really early for good parking and less crowds. Go in all the houses that are open with great antiques for sale.
