Nestled in the northeast corner of Indiana, Pokagon State Park offers a variety of activities for the whole family, including interpretive programs at the nature center. Guided horseback trail rides, camping, hiking trails plus two beaches make Pokagon a popular getaway.
The Trine State Recreation Area recently opened on the opposite side of I-69 from Pokagon State Park. Trine SRA is nearly 200 acres and features Gentian Lake, a 23-acre kettle-hole lake. Boat rentals, licenses and bait are available at the Trine Welcome Center. Only property-owned boats are allowed, which helps regulate traffic density on the water and prevents the unintentional introduction of exotic plants and animals. Fishing is allowed from rental boats and from a public fishing pier with permit. The wooded grounds, scattered wetlands and open meadows offer excellent hiking and nature study opportunities. The 2.5-mile Rolling Oaks multi-use trail is open for hikers and bikers. When there is enough snow, tubing and sledding are available. Trine SRA property and welcome center hours vary seasonally.
