This is a large park with many features: a lake, with limited swimming, a pioneer village, a covered bridge (nice for stealing a kiss), nature trails, and camping.

They have a nice lake to swim in and to fish in. They have a nice camp ground to stay at. They also have different programs at the park during the year.

Fowler Park is a great place for just getting away for a little while! The village of log cabins and covered bridge also make it a seasonal favorite, especially in the fall and winter.

This park is so pretty. Tons of log cabins, a covered bridge, a good sized lake for fishing, and campgrounds. They have seasonal event such as the Pioneer Days and Christmas Walk. I love this place for taking photos. They also have nice clean playground.

Very nice park south of Terre Haute. Has small lake , camp grounds, and large settlement of a pioneer village with grist mill, many log cabins, blacksmith shop. Several times a year they open the village with volunteers to reenact the pioneer lifestyle with many displays and is great for children.
