The DNR’s 2019 Indiana Recreation Guide is the source for information on state parks, state forests, lakes, fish & wildlife areas, nature preserves, state park inns, and other DNR properties.
Soon, free printed copies of each will be available at local retail outlets, state parks, lakes and other DNR properties.
The guides also are available at the DNR booth at the Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show, which runs through Feb. 24, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.
Annual entrance passes for state park properties can be purchased in person at the gatehouse or offices of state park properties during business hours, at the Indiana Government Center South in Indianapolis during business hours or at innsgifts.com.
Indiana resident passes cost $50. For individuals 65 years old or older, the price is $25. Annual passes for vehicles with out-of-state license plates are $70. Normal daily gate fees for residents at most properties are $7 per in-state vehicle. For more information on Indiana state park properties, visit stateparks.IN.gov.
