UPDATE: Brown County SP overnight facilities remain closed; limited day use permitted Monday and Tuesday (June 24-25)
Start Date: 6/24/2019 All Day
End Date: 6/24/2019
Event Description:

UPDATE: Brown County SP overnight facilities remain closed; limited day use permitted Monday and Tuesday (June 24-25)

At Brown County State Park, the campgrounds, cabins and Abe Martin Lodge closures have now been extended another day through at least Tuesday, June 25. Campers and lodge guests with reservations have been contacted directly.

The park will reopen for some day use activities and services on Monday and Tuesday, June 24 -25. This includes such activities as sight-seeing, fishing and picnicking. Abe Martin Lodge remains closed, and the pools, all modern restrooms, and drinking fountains will remain closed. Guests who visit for permitted activities must bring their own drinking water. Vault toilets are available in the park. Gates will be staffed, but no admission will be charged.

The nature center and park office will be open, but restrooms in those buildings will be closed. Some hiking trails will be open, but mountain bike trails and horse trails will remain closed as crews continue to evaluate them for the impact of torrential rain and high winds.   

Park staff continue to work closely with DNR’s Division of Engineering, consultants and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) to ensure that when the park fully reopens there is safe drinking water and water for all needed uses across the property.

Closure of overnight facilities beyond Tuesday night will be evaluated as we watch lake conditions and rainfall, and as we receive water test results.

Updates will be posted at stateparks.IN.gov/7881.htm and on social media. If additional camper or inn guest cancellations are required, those guests will be notified directly by park staff or through the central reservation system.

Brown County State Park (on.IN.gov/browncountysp) is at 1450 S.R. 46 E in Nashville, 47448.
