Fall Excursions in French Lick West Baden

Adventures Together Last a Lifetime

The colorful rolling hills of southern Indiana are the perfect backdrop for fall fun like a water getaway or up-close elephant encounter.

Surrounded by The Hoosier National Forest and minutes away from Patoka Lake, Indiana’s second largest lake, the Visit French Lick West Baden area is a fall paradise.

Experience the vibrant colors of fall foliage that fill the hills by indulging in a wine cruise or rent a pontoon and cruise the lake at your leisure. Hike, bike or horseback ride the abundance of trails the area offers. The French Lick Scenic Railway is a train enthusiast dream and showcases some of the area’s greatest scenery and journeys through a tunnel.

Fall isn’t complete without festivals and there are plenty to choose from including the Pumpkin Festival, Fall Fun Fest and Art on the Green.

Continue your adventure at Wilstem Ranch where you can zip line through the canopy, ride horses, take a thrilling side by side ATV tour or get up close and personal during a one-of-a-kind opportunity with some very special animals. Give an elephant a bath or pet a giraffe.

Many lodging opportunities await such as an indoor waterpark and hotel, camping, cabins, floating cabins, B & B’s, hotels and grand historic hotels.
