Indiana State Park Pictures - Part Two

Updated on February 11, 2018

More Indiana State Park Pictures

As a resident of Indiana and someone who loves to hike, I've visited nearly all of the state parks available here. As I've traveled amongst them, enjoying what they have to offer and occasionally writing about them, I've taken a lot of photographs. As you can see from the images on this page, I'm not a photographer, and I only have an inexpensive point and shoot camera. But, with such a large volume of photos, I have quite a few I've never used for any purpose.

I finally decided that these photos might be of interest to some. They might be enjoyable for those who love nature or useful for someone who is trying to find a park that they would like to explore more.

Some time ago, I put together a page that displayed many of these unused photos. The resulting page, Indiana State Park Pictures was able to focus only on a handful of the parks; Brown County, Turkey Run, Shades, Clifty Falls, Spring Mill, McCormicks Creek, Indiana Dunes, and Pokago State Parks. If I hadn't stopped, the page would have been enormous.

So, at this time I'm creating a second page to provide some photos of other Indiana State Parks that have otherwise gone unused. As a reminder, I am not a photographer and I provide these photos only for your enjoyment.


Fort Harrison State Park

Fort Harrison State Park lies on the east side of Indianapolis. As the name would imply, the area was once part of a military base. It offers hiking, horse back riding, and even sledding in the wintertime. Some of the trails are paved and can be used for biking as well as walking. Fall Creek and Lawrence Creek run through the park and there are a couple of ponds as well.

The pictures you see below of Fort Harrison were taken during the summer of 2009.

Mounds State Park

Lying on the southeast side of Anderson, Indiana, Mounds State Park features ancient Indian mounds, built by the Adena Hopewell Indians. Some of the 6 miles of trails in the park lead visitors among the mounds.

The pictures that you see below were all taken in July of 2009.

Prophetstown State Park

Prophetstown State Park is situated just northeast of Lafayette/West Lafayette, Indiana. Restored prairie land makes up the landscape, thus the area is fairly flat, and has far fewer trees than most other Indiana parks. Visitors can also see a recreated farmstead when visiting the park. Hiking and bicycling are very easy at Prophetsttown, with a very level surface throughout.

The pictures you see below were taken in late May of 2009.

Tippecanoe River State Park

Just outside of Winamac, Indiana, Tippecanoe River State Park lies in the north central portion of Indiana. The landscape includes mostly level terrain with sand dunes in the southern portion of the park. Sandhill cranes are known to frequent the area just several miles west of the park.

The photographs below were taken during the summer of 2009.

Whitewater Memorial State Park

 In the eastern portion of Indiana, near the town of Liberty, Whitewater Memorial State Park includes the 200 acre Whitewater Lake and provides access to Brookville Lake as well. Hiking here is easy to moderate and fishing is plentiful.

The photos here were taken in the summer of 2009, on an overcast day.

Summit Lake State Park

Summit Lake State Park in the east central portion of the state features an 800 acre man made lake as well as wetlands, prairie, and woodlands. Hiking here is easy as the landscape is flat but fishing is certainly a bigger focus.

The pictures you find below were taken during the summer of 2009 on a rainy day.
