Special Events

Story telling festival photo

Fireworks, car shows, living history, reenactments, volunteer days, fishing derbies…the list goes on. There's a special event for nearly every age and taste at our state park or reservoir properties.

Our interpretive naturalists also offer regular public programs that include hikes, talks, craft programs, campfires and night hikes. Regular weekly and/or monthly program schedules are available for our properties.

The annual Special Events Calendar provides an overview of big annual activities held at our DNR properties. It is a great tool to help you coordinate your camping, cabin and inn visits with these events. If you would like a copy as a pdf or in print, email specialevents@dnr.IN.gov or call 317-232-4140. For the most current listing, check calendar.dnr.IN.gov, call the specific property you plan to visit or ask the gate attendant when you arrive.

Bald Eagle Watches for 2020

Learn about bald eagles at a 2020 Indiana State Parks Eagle Watch. Interpretive naturalists will discuss the history of bald eagles, their reintroduction to Indiana and show you bald eagle nests, roosts and hunting grounds in the area. Programs vary by property. These popular programs fill up quickly, so register early.
