From the Indiana Department of Natural Resources

The Department of Natural Resources’ 2012 Indiana Recreation Guide, which provides information on state parks, reservoirs, state park inns, fish & wildlife areas, state forests, state historic sites and other DNR properties, is now available free online at (look for a link to the 2012 Indiana Recreation Guide under “Quick Links”).

Local retail outlets and state parks, reservoirs and other DNR properties also have free printed copies available.

Free printed copies of the guides will also be available at the Indianapolis Boat Sport & Travel Show, Feb. 17-26, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

Annual entrance passes for state parks and reservoirs can be purchased in person at the gatehouses or property offices during business hours, at the Indiana Government Center South in Indianapolis, or at

Indiana resident passes are $36 or $18 for individuals 65 years old or older. Annual passes for vehicles with out-of-state license plates are $46. Normal daily gate fees for residents at most properties are $5 per vehicle. Prices for the passes and for the daily entry fees have remained the same since 2006. This year the new SPR Go! program provides discount packages for entrance passes, camping and other property activities. For more information on Indiana State Parks and Reservoirs and SPR Go!, see
