“A great way to start the Christmas holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

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. Pioneer Days (held in October) create a historic flavor for those interested in what it was like to be a pioneer living in a log cabin in the 1800s. The Christmas Walk (held in the first weekend in December) is particularly magical. Luminaria light the way through the village of original log homes and provide a chance to see how the pioneers celebrated the holiday. In some cabins, the pioneers showed how they carved or hewed wooden gifts. The blacksmith made candle holders and other metal crafts. In other cabins, family members decorated trees, sang Christmas carols, and read the story of the birth of Jesus. It is a joyous event as the volunteers reenact the story of people on the western (as Indiana was in the early 19th century) frontier. What a great way to begin the Christmas holiday!

“Cute Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

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.

“"Nice wooded Park "”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

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.
