Indiana is an incredible state, filled with amazing nature to explore. So if you want a little adventure, a great choice is (the very tasty sounding) Potato Creek State Park.
Found in north-central Indiana, just 12 miles SW of South Bend, this state park has a host of year round activities for the whole family to enjoy. If you love the great outdoors, you will love it!
A huge draw to the state park is the 327 acre lake – Worster Lake – where there is a host of water activities to keep you entertained. There are boat launches to take your boats out, and fishing is welcome on the lake.
On those sunny days there is a beach and swimming to keep you cool too!
For those families who prefer land, then don’t worry because Potato Creek State Park has you covered there too!
Get those walking shoes out, because there are a number of trails that you can hike along, from easy to rugged. They range from .5 miles to 2.5 miles, so you can choose what you want to take on before you head out there.
For those biking and mountain biking enthusiasts, there are great trails for you, and even beginners too!
The fun doesn’t have to end when summer does, because come winter there is a host of fun things to do with the family. From ice fishing to cross-country skiing, you can really enjoy what each season has to offer.
With a wildlife observation area, a tubing hill, bridle trails and playground equipment for those kids who STILL have energy after all of the other fun they have had, Potato Creek State Park really is made for active families!
So let’s get out there and enjoy it!
