“A lovely Sunday Drive”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

just off the beaten path and only about 25 minutes from Fort Wayne. Hiking trails, beaches, boat rentals, and camping/cabins. Take the family for a day or a week, you'll have a great time!

“Pretty but not as pretty as some.”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

It's a nice park but a visit to the Nature Center was more than disappointing. The employee just sat at the desk with his feet up talking to other guests who he clearly knew. Glad I didn't have any questions.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We have been going here for 25'years, sometimes twice in the summers. We raised our kids here and have wonderful memories. The cabins are huge and rustic. Hate the furniture and beds though. We mostly camp. Love the campground, the store, and the paved roads. The bathrooms have not changed in 25 years except for faucets and auto flush commodes. Don't shower in your bare feet!! This is a big complaint with us. We love the fishing and boat rentals. We will continue to go each year and hope to see bathroom improvements very soon!! I am sure that if our dear friend, Tom, was still alive and manager, this would have been done by now.

“A reason to live in Albion Indiana”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Year around, my wife and I visit the park at least weekly and often several times a week for running, hiking, biking, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, kyacking and swimming. All four seasons are great, although the park does not get many visitors during the colder months. We especially love having about 12 miles of trails in the forest. An annual pass is a great deal that also gets us into other Indiana State Parks when we are traveling.

“Canoe”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

There is plenty to do in a canoe. But the sites are pretty primitive and without a group of campers, it can get boring.
