The Vinegar Mill area hosts ruins and a newer modeled shelter from one of Indiana’s first stone cutting mills. The 1850 dam sits up the creek next to one of two WPA/CCC built shelter houses. 1913 oneroom school, also.

The Park host a modern campground with 35 electric sites, 9 of which have sewer connections. The campground also features 15 primitive sites and the park is open to group camping in the camp or nearby shelters.
