[DNR] Free admission at DNR properties on 10th anniversary of 9/11
Start Date: 9/7/2011
End Date: 9/7/2011
Entry Description
Gate fees will be waived at DNR state parks, reservoirs and forest properties this Sunday, Sept. 11.

"Ten years ago on 9/11 and after, people visited parks to attempt to find peace and solitude,  sometimes in record numbers,” DNR director Robert E. Carter Jr. said. “This is our way of making it easier to do so again. We hope people will make the day one of remembrance, either on their own or with family and friends."

Although gate admission, normally $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle at most properties, will not be charged, all other activity fees will remain in effect. Normal gate fees will be back in place Sept. 12 and thereafter.

The DNR manages 24 state parks and eight reservoirs, plus three state forest properties that charge admission.

The parks are Brown County, Chain O’Lakes, Charlestown, Clifty Falls, Falls of the Ohio, Fort Harrison, Harmonie, Indiana Dunes, Lincoln, McCormick’s Creek, Mounds, O’Bannon Woods, Ouabache, Pokagon, Potato Creek, Prophetstown, Shades, Shakamak, Spring Mill, Summit Lake, Tippecanoe River, Turkey Run, Versailles and Whitewater Memorial.

The reservoirs are Brookville, Cagles Mill (Lieber State Recreation Area), Cecil M. Hardin (Raccoon SRA), Hardy, Mississinewa, Monroe, Patoka and Salamonie.

The forest properties are Deam Lake SRA, Ferdinand State Forest and Starve Hollow SRA.
