Indiana state parks make gift giving easy

It’s not officially November yet, but I figure if the stores can be filling aisles with holiday merchandise while the Halloween costumes are still for sale, it’s not too early to talk about gift giving — Hoosier recreation style.

Did you know that you can purchase gift certificates for Indiana’s seven state park inns? With prices ranging from $25 to $200, there’s a state park inn gift certificate perfect for everyone.

For just $99, you can give your outdoor loving friends and family a 2011 Indiana State Park pass that will grant them access to 33 state parks and reservoirs all year long, as well as a subscription to the “Outdoor Indiana” magazine.

Or if your giftee is one of those types that says, “I don’t want anything,” honor them with a tax-deductible donation in their name to the Hoosier Outdoor Experience, a program of the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation.

Best of all? You can get these terrific gifts under your Christmas tree without ever leaving your seat. Just click here to visit Indiana’s “Mother Nature’s Mercantile” where you can purchase these and other outdoor Indiana-related gifts.
