About this activity

If you think that taking the family to the park is a summer activity, think again! Fort Harrison State Park in Indiana is perfect for those outdoor adventures, no matter what time of year!

Did you know that winter is actually a really popular time to visit, because the park has one of the biggest sledding hills in the area? Pretty cool!

During spring you can get those walking shoes out, and stroll with the family through the woodland wildflowers that will be in bloom across the entire park.

Get those hats for summer as you enjoy a canoe trip down Fall Creek, which runs from the north side of Fort Harrison State Park. What a great way to keep cool!

Then those leaves are waiting to be crunched during Fall, with those beautiful colors and warm, sunny days. In fact, the state park is the last forested corner left in Marion County!

All 1,700 acres are ready to be enjoyed, whether you are a family of joggers, fishers, hikers, or picnickers!

If that wasn't enough, Fort Harrison State Park isn't just outdoor adventure. There is history waiting to be explored too! The park has a Museum of 20th Century Warfare featuring exhibits on the lives and history of the soldiers that once marched through the grounds. There is also a preserved former Citizen's Military Training Camp.

One of the hidden gems in Indiana, Fort Harrison State Park gives you that nature filled experience kids will just love!

So grab those hats and those shoes, and let's go!

They love to keep the park clean for future families, so help them out by following any regulations, and taking any trash of yours with you when you leave

There is an Inn Restaurant within the park, so why not have a tasty lunch there!

Keep an eye out for the battle demonstrations that happen 6 times a year

Give them a call about the programs and resources they have to give your students a historical day out!
