Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area

8,933 acres of state owned wetland/marsh just south of Linton, Indiana. Bird watchers paradise.

Reviewed By Birdguy - Carlisle, PA

We thoroughly enjoyed exploring this vast area of wetlands and grasslands. The permitting process is easy and free, and excellent maps are provided to help navigate the road network. We saw over 50 species of birds; good for winter birding. The endangered Whooping Cranes were definitely a highlight. A visitor center will be constructed soon, which will be a welcome addition. We appreciated that the roads are dirt and stone, which reduces traffic and speed through the area.

Shakamak State Park

Reviewed By Michael D - Bloomington

Nice park with 3 good size lakes to fish, nice outdoor pool (wasn't open when we visited this time), campground, cabins and picnic areas. We always had good success fishing for crappie in the spring at Kickapoo. The lakes are quiet since noisy outboards aren't racing around and that helps a lot with the experience.

Redbird State Recreation Area

This is a large state owned property that's known throughout the country for superb off-road recreation.

Reviewed By Shane C - Buena Vista, Colorado

This place is a fun place to go. I have taken my family here and we had a blast. It is close to where used to live. It is a very great way to relax and spend the day. My son loves to go here with me. Definitely a place we are going to when we move back to French Lick, Indiana.

Humphreys Park

Reviewed By Ashley T - Linton, Indiana

I love this park! The grounds are very well taken care of - grass is never overgrown, trees look beautiful, and the grass is always green. There's a lot of different things for the kids to play on such as swings, slides, and jungle gyms. The park also has tennis and basketball courts available for use and a real tank!
What makes this park even better is that they are always making improvements. There is now a splash pad, a new climbing apparatus, and they are are installing new bathrooms on the other side of the park so you don't have to travel way to the other side (a blessing for parents since the majority of things to do is are opposite the current restrooms). There are volunteers who take care of the flower beds so it seems there is always a pop of color as well.
There is a track around the park that is just shy of a mile long. The public pool is close as well. During the summer, the 4th of July carnival is always here, too! Add to that performances on the band stage and a weekly farmers market, and you'd be pretty hard pressed not to find SOMETHING you'd like!
My only complaint is the putt putt course. It used to be in pretty decent shape and affordable for a fun thing to do. Now, it's crazy run down (holes in the carpet, missing pieces of the holes, and just general disrepair) and this price to get in is ridiculous! $5 for adults and $4 for kids...for what? Sure, there are 18 holes, but not a single one is in decent shape.
I definitely say to visit this park, though! Between the things the play on, the picnic tables, the splash pad, and the abundance of trees, this park is sure to please anyone.

Sunset Park

City owned park & campground nestled between two boat and bank accessible lakes. Great fishing, camping, shower house, laundry facility, screened shelter, boat ramp, docks, playground and plenty of shade. One mile north of Linton's city park and numerous shopping and restaurant locations. Check out our Facebook page for more information Sunset Park & Lake Campground

Close to town of Linton but very secluded with two lakes and lots of shaded campsites and playground. Grade get-away for visiting fishermen and/or families.
