This bridge and the surrounding area are beautiful! Worth the leisurely drive! There are lots of other covered bridges in Park County, Indiana. You can stop by the welcome center and pick up a map that contains 4 different driving loops that are easy to follow. This is a great couple's trip!

Loved everything about this and the tents offered both bargain deals as well as good quality items for gifts.

It was fun to see the old bridges. The shopping was fun. The selection of food from the venders in Rockville was very good. Did not like the Old Jail Inn. Could be a little dangerous since it had no fire exit or sprinklers.

I'm giving this bridge high marks because even though it was destroyed by fire, enough people cared about it to rebuild it in 2006. It is 245 feet long. They did a great job and it looks just like the old ones in the area. Granted I'm not a bridge expert. It is in a beautiful area, with the Big... More

The best time to go is before (about 2 weeks or so to avoid all the ridiculous signage plastering everything and the vendors setting up early) or after the festival that way you know, if you plan on eating and shopping, you're supporting the locals and you can still enjoy the fall colors and purchase the harvest time products for...

Loved our visit to Indiana. We traveled the countryside for hours, met great people, had great food and enjoyed the fall colors. Went to the festival in Rockville and Mansfield, and yes there were a lot of people, however we felt it added to the ambiance. A true Americana! Had to find the gems and treasures, and we did find...

It took 53 minutes to drive 2 miles so we stopped at the History Museum in Brazil. We had a personal tour by the volunteer guide. When the traffic was better we went on to Mansfield to find mostly cheap junky Imports, stuff that would be for sale at a carnival of fair, not the quality handicrafts we were looking... More

Great small town on the national historic records. Beautiful bridge with waterfall and a grist mill. Grist Mill and General Store still in operation. Friendly, welcoming people. Met a lady who lived in the lavendar home built in the 1800's who bubbled over with pride in her little town.

There are 3 driving routes to many covered bridges within Park County. The available maps are very accurate and easy to follow. The bridges are well cared for and many you can drive over. The countryside is beautiful, but very rural. We hoped to picnic by a bridge and saw no picnic tables. Also, no rest rooms. You have to... More

Parke County, Indiana boasts 35 covered bridge, some you can drive through and some are off the road. The countryside is beautiful: rolling hills, forests, deer, Amish horse and buggies. I highly recommend getting the map that the county publishes as some of the bridges are off the beaten path. The map has 5 different color-coded routes that are quite... More
