Since 1903 Fort Harrison has played an important role in Indiana history. Although the Fort was slated for closure in 1991, reuse of the land will continue to serve the citizens of Indiana. In 1995 the U.S. Department of the Interior approved the State of Indiana's request to convert 1,700 acres of the 2,500 acre post into a state park and nature preserve. Fort Harrison State Park includes one of the largest tracts of unbroken hardwood forest in Central Indiana, several small lakes, three and one-half miles of Fall Creek and its tributaries, trails and picnic areas. Although the park is opening with limited services at this time, we hope you will enjoy your time here. Now and in the years ahead, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy recreation, education, and leisure activities within this beautiful area.

An entrance fee will be charged at this park. Click for information on entrance fees.
