When you start thinking about your new year’s recreation, make sure you plan for every month so you don’t miss out.
Use the DNR’s special events calendar, StateParks.IN.gov/3282.htm, which shows what’s planned for 2015 at state parks and reservoirs throughout Indiana as your guide.
You’ll find everything from First Day Hikes on Thursday, Jan. 1, to Christmas in July at Salamonie Lake, to December’s 2015 Christmas Bird Count at Indiana Dunes State Park.
Some changes are bound to occur during the year, so check in often.
For camping reservations as much as six months in advance, visit Camp.IN.Gov which is available 24 hours or call 1 (866) 6CAMPIN or 1 (866) 622-6746 between noon and 8 p.m.
For reservations at Indiana State Park Inns, visit IndianaInns.com or call 1 (877) LODGES1 or 1 (877) 563-4371.
