The first state park in Indiana, McCormick’s Creek is just 15 miles northwest of Bloomington.

Limestone caves, rushing water, and the dense forested landscapes at McCormick’s Creek provide beautiful scenery to explore on a day trip or overnight adventure.

Electric and primitive camping are available at McCormick’s Creek State Park. Over 200 individual sites are available, as well as group camping areas and cabins.

Other overnight options besides camping include stays at the Canyon Inn within the state park, complete with lodge furnishings and front-door access to the great outdoors.

Other popular attractions at the park include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, an exhibit-filled nature center, and a variety of accessible hiking trails. Visitors can also enjoy guided horseback rides from the Saddle Barn.
