Falls of the Ohio State Park is a state park in Indiana. It is located on the banks of the Ohio River at Clarksville, Indiana, across from Louisville, Kentucky. The park is part of the Falls of the Ohio National Wildlife Conservation Area.

My husband and I stop at a lot of state parks when passing through new places. It was fun to look at the different rocks and fossils. It’s an okay place to stop by if you’ve got the time. The sunset and water made for...More
Holy cow, the fossils here are amazing! Easy walk out, but still wear closed toe/closed heel shoes. Hot on the rocks mid-day, so bring the sunscreen and extra water. Fossils are everywhere, so kids will definitely dig it!

The Widow's Walk ice cream and bike shop is very close at 415 E. Riverside Dr. In addition to some great ice cream and bike rentals, they have burgers and sandwiches. You can't miss it because it is an old Victorian colorfully-painted house.
With regard to the fossil beds, I was there in April so I can only give you my best guess about walking on them. The river was so high then and there was so much debris, that I doubt much has been cleaned up or that the river is lower. I would call/email the Clarksville Park System and ask for an update. For some reason, TripAdvisor doesn't allow websites in answers to questions. So just do a search for the Parks and Recreation Dept. for Clarksville, Indiana.
