Salt Lake City, Utah

Entrance to the park costs $3 for cars with Indiana license plates, $5 for out-of-state cars, and is free for those with an Indiana State Park membership pass. Entrance does not cover activities such as horseback riding or swimming.
A number of hiking trails run through the park, with varying degrees of difficulty and length. Pick up a map when you enter the park.
Horseback rides start at the stables. The horses are trail broken, so no riding skills are required. A guide leads the group through beautiful trails in the park. A ride costs $9 and lasts about an hour. You pay at the stable when you begin the ride.
To really enjoy the day, pack a picnic lunch and sit at one of the many designated picnic areas throughout the park. Be sure to bring trash bags with you, as you are asked to carry out your own trash.
