Welcome back weekend

The temperature is rising, the frogs are calling and the early wildflowers along our hiking trails signal that we’re ready for you.

May 2-4 is Welcome Back Weekend at our state parks, reservoirs and state forest recreation areas.

Veterans visit state parks, reservoirs and state forest recreation areas free on Saturday, May 3. All visitors may enter free on Sunday, May 4 to kick off Travel Indiana week.

This is the perfect opportunity for wildlife watching, a night by a crackling campfire and a day or two to relax without traveling far from home. Load up the car, pack up the camper and come join us.
