Lots to see and do in comparison to other state parks. Boat tour, kayak and bike rentals (all for cheap). Pioneer Village is also very interesting. Definitely worth a day or two.

Spring Mill State Park is a jewel! It’s a beautiful place to walk, hike or picnic. The history is palpable. The lake is a perfect place to canoe or kayak.

We had plenty of room to place our large tent and park our vehicle. There was room left to gather camp chairs around the fire pit and space for the picnic table to eat. There was also space to let the children play.
