“One of the best places in NE Indiana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is a great park that's well cared for - especially the Nature Center. I haven't been able to explore as much of the park as I'd like during summer but the Nature Center is a must-do on the list. Fred's Sunday morning bird walks are another addition for any nature lover's list. What a great place to spend a day!

“Local favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The salad is a local favorite, and rightfully so. It's fantastic! Also, the lasagna is terrific, but the best item is the Pasta con Verdura. I usually ask for the angel hair pasta instead of the bowtie.

“A popular park.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a premier Indiana State Park which draws crowds throughout the year. Campgrounds, hiking trails, maintained wintertime tobagon run,
plenty of wildlife ( skunks & racoons when camping) are all factors.

“A Great Hoosier Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

With tobogganing in the winter and canoeing in the summer, Pokagon is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind or around the holidays. A wide variety of trails wind around the park for those who care to hike and geocache as well. The Inn has many rooms, and there are many campsites (seasonal availability, check with park) for both RV and tent camping.

“Great State Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The trails are very nice, for how small the park is. The beach is ok, but is too small. The place is great for easy hiking, walking around, or a nice trail ride, especially at night. There are a few nice areas for picnics and playing around.
