2021 Roadtrip to Falls of Ohio State Park in Clarksville Indiana on June 18th

My visit

On the final day of my solo adventure to Northern KY/Southern IN, I headed out to the Falls of Ohio State Park. This park is different than most Indiana State Parks. There really aren't any trails to hike. The main feature of the park is the fossil beds in the Ohio River. The best time to visit this park is when the water in the river is low. Unfortunately, the water wasn't low during my visit. I did get some pretty neat pics though. I might have been more interested in the flower garden than I was the river! Oh well!

General Info

(from https://www.in.gov/dnr/state-parks/parks-lakes/falls-of-the-ohio-state-park/)

Located on the banks of the Ohio River at 201 West Riverside Drive, Clarksville, Indiana, is Falls of the Ohio State Park. The 390-million-year-old fossil beds are among the largest exposed Devonian fossil beds in the world. The park features a spectacular interpretive center overlooking the fossil beds featuring new interactive, immersive exhibits. August through October provides the best accessibility to the 220 acres of fossil beds, as the river is at its lowest level during this period.
