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 "Reservations" or "Schedule Me" button to request that your event be placed on the calendar. While there is no specific enforcement of who has priority on the use of a facility, it is our hope there will be no planning conflicts. You may want to post a copy of your schedule confirmation at the park's bulletin board or at the venue shortly before your event. And take a copy with you on the day of yor event. 
Q.) What about campfires? A.) No fires may be layed on the ground in any park, however, some parks provide cooking grilles. Park visitors are free to bring their own cooking grilles. 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. Fishing is permitted and those fishing must comply with Indiana licensing requirements. 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.
Q.) Can I install decorations in the Gladys Russell Barn? A.) Yes but the barn is an historic wooden building and the installation of nails, staples, push pins or any other mechanical fastener for the hanging of decorations, posters, artwork or any other item is not permitted.
