Brown County State Park

1405 S.R. 46 W.

Nicknamed the "Little Smokies" because of the area's resemblance to the Great Smoky Mountains, Brown County encompasses nearly 16,000 acres of rugged hills, ridges and fog-shrouded ravines. Glaciers from the most recent ice ages stopped short of the "hills o' Brown," but their meltwaters helped create the narrow ridges, steep slopes and deep gullies of Brown County State Park. Indiana's largest park is a traditional fall color hot spot, with nearly 20 miles of tree-lined roads and many scenic vistas overlooking miles of uninterrupted forestland.

Great place to camp, cook out, or go hiking for the day. Easy to get in the exact distance you intend to cover as the trails are less forcefully interconnected than the trails at some of the other state parks. Be very sure to check yourself and your pets for ticks as we have found at least 1 on our clothing every time we have gone hiking here. Plenty of great views and lookout points to stop at and have lunch and a beer or they also have some great food options at the Abe Martin Lodge.

Breathtakingly gorgeous views and very inexpensive to state residents. Plenty of walking and biking trails with varying degrees of difficulty ranging from casual strolls to professional hikes. The nature center is very informative regarding Indiana's natural wildlife and it's also kid friendly. I highly recommend it if you are a nature fan or just want to get away from the city for a day.

If you love the country and the woods, it's a awesome place to go camping and take your family, you probably wont get any phone signal so be aware but it's time for you to put your phone down and have fun around the fire with your family and friends. You can also have a lovely ride on many awesome horse trails.
