My favorite park in Indiana! The park has seen improvements in the past couple of years. The village is a fantastic learning experience foe all and many times there are historical characters to interact with visitors. The Mill has a museum.

We went to the park to eat at the restaurant and had to pay $9.00 to get into the state park. I thought our taxes paid for the parks. This will cause people not to eat at this restaurant.
