Otter Bend Picnic Area Dedication, Tippecanoe River State Park
Start Date: 7/30/2020Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 7/30/2020End Time: 1:00 PM
Event Description:

We are excited to open the Otter Bend Picnic Area at Tippecanoe River State Park. We invite you to join us as we celebrate all the work that has been accomplished. This new picnic area is located on the site of the Hilgemeier residence and acreage that were inholdings at Tippecanoe River for many years.

Work to create the picnic area included acquisition of the property through the Indiana Heritage Trust (now the President Benjamin Harrison Conservation Trust), bank stabilization through a LARE grant with the support of many local and state agency partners, historic and archaeological research at the site, preservation of several significant artifacts that lend meaning to the family's history with the house, demolition of the residence, interpretive signage for the site and development of an access road and by our property staff and maintenance crew. It's a great location that provides access to the ecologically significant Tippecanoe River for fishing and picnicking.

Please RSVP as noted. We will practice social distancing during the event and will be in compliance with guidance provided in the State's Back on Track plan and Governor Holcomb's Executive Orders.

Plan to arrive early - parking will require shuttle service that will be provided by DNR staff. And yes, we'll have plenty of bug spray for those mosquitoes Tippecanoe River State Park is so well known for!

We hope you can join us!
