Start Date: 1/23/2017
Event Description:
When you start thinking about your 2017 recreation, make sure you plan for every month so you don’t miss out.

Use the DNR’s special events schedule,, which shows what big events are planned for this year at state park properties throughout Indiana.

You’ll find everything from the Polar Plunge at Versailles State Park on Feb. 18, to the sand sculpture contest at Pokagon State Park on Aug. 5, to the Un-BOO-lievable Halloween Camping Weekend at Raccoon State Recreation Area on Oct. 28.

Some changes are bound to occur during the year, so check in often.

“In addition to these special events, our interpretive naturalists offer a wide range of hikes, talks and other outdoor experiences to introduce Hoosiers to our natural and cultural resources,” said Ginger Murphy, deputy director for stewardship for Indiana State Parks.

These events are posted online in the DNR calendar or on printed program schedules at nature centers and park gates.

Some state parks also offer periodic electronic newsletters with event details. You can see a list of these at and sign up for your favorites. Entering your email in the landing page will take you to another webpage with a list of the newsletters.
