McCormick’s Creek State Park

Last month, we kicked off our list of the Top 10 State Parks in Indiana, and today we finish it off! If you’re looking for a great place to explore outdoor recreation in Indiana, check out these five fun state parks—courtesy of our team at Greenwood RV Rentals & Sales. (For a complete listing of Indiana state parks, check out the DNR website.)

6. Chain O’ Lakes

What can you enjoy at this northern Indiana park? Lakes, lakes, and more lakes. Chain O’ Lakes State Park consists of nine connecting lakes where you can enjoy boating, kayaking, swimming, canoeing, and more. If your aim is to enjoy lake life, then definitely check out this Indiana park.

7. McCormick’s Creek

What wouldn’t you love about waterfalls, hiking through limestone canyons, or exploring the diverse forest surrounding McCormick’s Creek State Park? This park, located in Spencer, IN, is certainly unique to the area and one to put on your must-visit list.

8. Spring Mill

If you’re looking for a park that combines outdoor recreation with local historical and cultural education, then consider Spring Mill State Park. Take a peek at the past in the restored Pioneer Village, explore caves by boat, or find out more about local hero and astronaut Gus Grissom at the Grissom Memorial.

9. Shades

Shades State Park is located not far from the Indianapolis area, so it’s great for day trips or longer stays at the campground. It’s best known for its hiking and canoeing.

10. Monroe Lake

The question shouldn’t be “what CAN I do at Monroe Lake?” but rather “what CAN’T I do?” This state park is a great one to end on because of its myriad of recreational opportunities. Here are just a few: boating, fishing, hiking, picnicking, waterskiing, swimming, and much more.
