New shelter at McCormick’s Creek SP open for reservations
Start Date: 2/28/2017
Event Description:
The new Centennial Shelter at McCormick’s Creek State Park is open for reservations.

The limestone shelter was dedicated in 2016 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Indiana State Parks. McCormick’s Creek was Indiana’s first state park, opening in 1916.

Engineering students from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and Gonzaga University, in partnership with the DNR Division of Engineering, designed the 1,250-square-foot shelter. It is similar to shelters built by the Civilian Conservation Corps but distinctive in its shape and size.

The shelter is fully accessible, has 13 tables, a large fireplace, electricity, access to nearby restrooms and can accommodate 100 people.

It is one of more than 170 shelters available for day use in Indiana’s 32 state park and state reservoir properties. Visitors can reserve them for picnics, family reunions, birthday parties and more.

Shelter reservations can be made at

McCormick’s Creek State Park ( is at 250 McCormick’s Creek Park Road, Spencer, 47460.
