O’Bannon Woods Is Indiana’s 24th State Park

O’Bannon Woods State Park is a new 2,000-acre state park in Harrison County created out of the former Wyandotte Woods State Recreation Area. The park contains more than 100 miles of recreational trails and is surrounded by the 24,000-acre Harrison-Crawford State Forest.

O’Bannon Woods State Park already features a modern 281-site campground, a horse rider’s campground, an interpretive center, Wyandotte Caves, a pioneer village, a 19th century working haypress, and hiking and horse trails that lead into the state forest. The Blue River, a favorite among canoeists and anglers, flows through the new state park. The park honors the O’Bannon family.
