Every state park lodge/inn includes a restaurant. It is common for complete strangers to join in conversation.
Brown County State Park - Abe Martin Lodge Abe Martin Lodge is the oldest lodge in the system. There are numerous cabins also available
McCormick's Creek State Park - Canyon Inn
Canyon Inn is another old inn. Brick and block construction has been updated and additional rooms added in the same style. The building looks over a wooded ravine and hosts numerous bird feeders around the restaurant, where you can have dinner with the birds.
Clifty Falls State Park - Clifty Inn
The original Inn burned in the 70's, so this is an entirely new structure. The inexpensive rooms, are located on a parking court. The inside halls are onesided with windows on the other looking out. The deluxe rooms overlooks the Ohio River valley and every room has a balcony.
Pokagon State Park - Potawatomi Inn
Renovated in 2000, the Potawatomi Inn is very nice with pleasant rooms and sitting areas that look out over the lake. The restaurant overlooks the lake and is a pleasant place to watch the sun go down. Inn also has some family cabins located across the park.
Spring Mill State Park - Spring Mill Inn
Located on a bluff overlooking the valley with Spring Mill. You can walk to the historic town, but the uphill return can be tiring.
Turkey Run State Park - Turkey Run Inn
Turkey Run SP is west of Indianapolis. The Lodge is a stone building with interior log beams nestled in the woods. A few cabins serve as remote motel rooms just west of the building.
Fort Harrison State Park - The Fort Golf Resort and Conference Center
Have not had a chance to stay here. It is located in the Officer's Quarters of Fort Benjamin Harrison.

Unique Qualities: State Park Inns are wonderful places because they are in the middle of what makes the State Park unique. The woods, the wildlife, and the trails. You wake up to the sounds of wildlife on many mornings. Outside your window is not a strip mall of motels, restaurants and gift shops, no -------. It's trails, clouds, trees, and people having fun. Meals are just a short walk down the hall. Always a wonderful atmosphere with views out every window.
