Experience Indiana's largest State Park in the Fall

Nicknamed the “Little Smokies” because of the area’s resemblance to the Great Smoky Mountains, Brown County encompasses nearly 16,000 acres of rugged hills, ridges, and fog-shrouded ravines. Glaciers from the most recent ice ages stopped short of the “hills o’ Brown,” but their meltwaters helped create the narrow ridges, steep slopes, and deep gullies of Brown County State Park. Indiana’s largest park is a traditional fall color hot spot, with nearly 20 miles of tree-lined roads and many scenic vistas overlooking miles of uninterrupted forestland.

The park’s rustic Abe Martin Lodge offers accommodations that include motel rooms, cabins, dining, and an indoor water park. Large campgrounds, hiking, and mountain biking trails, interpretive services, a saddle barn for guided horse rides, and a separate horseman campground with 70 miles of horse trails are some of the things that make Brown County State Park popular year-round.
