Entry Description

No gimmicks. No disclaimers. No worries if you spent too much at the State Fair.

Free to all participants, the fifth annual Ford Hoosier Outdoor Experience invades Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis, Sept. 21-22.

About 25,500 people attended last year and did too many outdoor activities to list. Room for more participants awaits in the heavily wooded, spacious, historic 1,700 acres of former Army base.

As in previous years, participants can do just about everything from archery and target shooting to mountain biking, fishing, kayaking, a tree identification hike and more. All equipment is provided. All activities, as well as parking and admission, are free. Participants can even bring their own food, although food booths will be selling their specialties.

The Ford Hoosier Outdoor Experience runs 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day that weekend. Made possible by the generosity of Central Indiana Ford dealers, the event is presented by the DNR and the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation. The goal is to introduce people to outdoor activities they may have never tried.

Online advance registration at is requested. Watch there or for updates and details.

Outdoorsy individuals who want to share their passion can sign up to volunteer at For questions about volunteering, contact volunteer coordinator Cheryl Hampton, (317) 233-1002,

Participant or volunteer, Fort Harrison State Park (, 5753 Glenn Road, Indianapolis, 46216) is the place to find free fun on Sept. 21-22.

Fun can be found in the rest of the outdoors of Indiana all year long but it probably won’t be free.
