Daily Craft & Coloring Table
We feature a different craft each day; most crafts are suitable for ages 5+. Another table is always stocked with crayons and a selection of coloring pages.

Kids’ Play Area & Small World Play Station
This area has a puppet stage, board and card games, puzzles, large felt board, picture books, and a touch table. The Small World play station features a rotating set of landscapes with miniature animals and habitat elements to stimulate creativity and storytelling skills.

Live Snakes & Interpretive Exhibits
Check in on our live snakes! We rotate in a new set of wall/shelf exhibits at the beginning of each summer and feature a large selection of taxidermy animals on permanent display.

Free Fishing Equipment Rental
Renters must be at least 18 years of age with a valid government ID. Check-out up to 4 sets per person during open hours; return between 1 and 5 p.m. the next day.

Hoosier Quest: Explore, Discover, Challenge
You can collect a unique pin for each Indiana State Park in Explore (each property can often be completed during a single day/weekend visit). Individuals can also earn special patches through both Discover and Challenge.

Jigsaw Puzzle Table
Spend a few minutes or a whole afternoon working on our current jigsaw puzzle (500-1500 piece puzzles designed for older children and adults). A different puzzle is rotated in after each puzzle is completed.

Got a question? Ask a Naturalist!
The Naturalist’s Office is located inside the Activity Center. You can also pick up maps/brochures/flyers or browse our library of field guides and other books.

Recycling Center
Recycle your aluminum cans with us! Proceeds fund programs, activities, and exhibits. You can also recycle plastic bottles and paper (no food containers).
