LINCOLN STATE PARK
Visit Lincoln State Park and discover Indiana's past throughout 10 miles of hiking trails, rolling forested hills and two scenic lakes. Sleep among the trees in our lakeside campground, log cabins or group cottages. Visit the Colonel Jones Home, the historic home of the merchant employer of young Abraham Lincoln.
The 1,747 acre park was established in 1932 as a memorial to Nancy Hanks. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was instrumental in establishing the recreational facilities now found in the park. The CCC was a national program designed to provide jobs for unemployed young men during the Great Depression. At Lincoln State Park, CCC crews built beautiful Lake Lincoln, Lakeside shelter, the boat rental building (formerly a ranger cabin) and many trails.
Sarah Lincoln Woods Nature Preserve is located in the southernmost portion of the park. A visit to Lincoln State Park is like taking a step back into time when the land was wild and Abe Lincoln was a boy.
State park permits can be purchased at any of the state park property locations across Indiana. State park permits can also be ordered online by visiting the INDINIA ENTRANCE FEE
