The mill is still in operation. The park employee present that day was very friendly and showed us how to produce corn flour. Explanations were very comprehensive. The surroundings are very nice. We bought red wheat and buckwheat flour to do bread and crepes.

Come here frequently to walk the trails. It's usually not too busy, so it's pretty calm and peaceful. There is some minor littering on occasion.

Born and raised in this area and have been going here before it was even a park. Once it was established as a park and the renovations began this timeless gem became the perfect place to visit any time.

Used the pavilion for a wedding. We were just attendees. Bad weather but the pavilion kept it dry. Nice park from the small part I saw. Would come back.

My husband and I went here on Fathers Day and it was very pretty. This mill is still in operation and they give demonstrations I believe every hour after they open. There are picnic spots and restrooms available along with a pavilion. Lots of places...More

Bonneyville Mill is a well worth it, off the beaten path destination for travelers who are visiting the nearby Amish Countryside, or passing through on the Indiana Toll Road. This park preserves a beautiful working grist mill, and the remains of one of the earliest...More

We have been to several mills while in Indiana, but this was the best because you get to see all the working parts up close. The grounds are great for picnics also.
