The Rules

Below are some of the frequently asked questions about the parks.

Q.) When are the parks open? A.) All County Parks are open 7 days a week, 365 days a year, from sunrise to sunset.
Q.) Can I reserve park facilities for my outing? A.) Yes and No. We now provide a calendar for each park to allow you to see activities planned at the various parks. You can use the associated "Schedule Me" button to request that your event be placed on the calendar. If you request it, an additional announcement can be posted on the web log for the park you wish to use. While there is no specific enforcement of who has priority on the use of a facility, it is our hope that this will help avoid planning conflicts. You may wish to post a copy of your schedule confirmation at the facility you have requested the night before or morning of your event and take a copy with you when the time comes.
Q.) What about campfires? A.) No fires may be layed on the ground in any park, however, some parks provide grills, and park patrons are free to bring their own grills as well. Please exercise great care to avoid injury to yourselves and damage to park grounds or property.
Q.) Are alcoholic beverages permitted in the park? A.) No.
Q.) Is hunting and fishing allowed? A.) No hunting is permitted for safety reasons, but fishing is permitted. Licenses are required as for any other Indiana waterway. No swimming or boating is permitted in any of the lakes.
Q.) Can I ride my Quad in the park? A.) No motorized vehicles are permitted beyond the parking lots and drives provided.
