"Big Bone Lick State Park" Union by WILDEFLOWER

Union Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 15 photos

Cute little Museum

Prehistoric animals have been found here. Driven by the ice, they were attracted to the salt and minerals found in the marshes that were found in the swamps found in the Bone Lick area. The animals became trapped and perished in the swamps. Fossil remains are here to observe, but the sulfur springs are drying up. There are nice exhibits at this small museum.

Buffalo observation deck

There is a nice observation deck anyone has access too! Look carefully at the wild flowers you will see some buffalo!


This is a picture of the animals caught in the swamp. If you are walking the trails and discover any bones etc.. let the park officer know of your findings. If you see a piece of wood of dirt covered rock you may be walking on a prehistoric bone. Many things have not been discovered here yet!
