What is there to do?
The original idea of the Muscatatuck State Park was built around the natural beauty of the river and the rough hilly terrain. The park is not very big, but the hiking is very good. The park offers over 7 miles of trails. Our walking trail is moderate. The system is currently being reworked (again) and when complete the trails will be marked.
No, we do not have a pool, but there is a pool at the city park which is less then two miles up the road. You can swim in the Muscatatuck River.
The park has contemporary playgrounds available with individual items spread throughout the facility.
The park offers a very nice league developed and maintained horseshoe pit area. These pits are open to the public, but please respect the time and money put into these well maintained clay pits.
The park has a sand volleyball court, basketball court, baseball diamond, soccer fields, cross-country running course and a good amount of mown open space. Hitting golf balls is permitted, yet please be aware of our other visitors. Dogs are welcome, yet must be on a leash.
The Muscatatuck Park is being managed as an:
"Extreme Sports Park"
The park offers some pretty challenging trails for you mountain bikers.
The park is also the best venue for Bouldering in Indiana. Check out Extreme Sports to get the spray on the Rock & Roll opportunities on the facility.
