“Wabash Valley” Summer Hike on 7/25/22 at Prairie Creek Park in Vigo County Indiana

"Wabash Valley" Seasonal Hike

My Hike:

This hike checks off a 52 Weeks 52 Hikes Challenge hike and also a Summer hike of my Seasonal Hike Challenge. It was a short one because my hikes at Versailles State Park left my back in bad shape! Tracy joined me this time!

General Info:

Prairie Creek Park is a park managed by Vigo County Indiana. It is located at 3230 W. French Drive in Prairie Creek Indiana.

Prairie Creek Park is best known for its Sugar Camp. In late January through early March, maple trees are tapped within the park. The sap is collected and routed using plastic tubing and pump systems to a holding tank located next to the Sugar Cabin. The Sugar Cabin is an authentic log cabin outfitted with evaporating equipment to produce maple syrup.

On its south border, Prairie Creek Park adjoins a 13.4 acre lake. At the front of the park is a small 1.8 acre pond. Channel catfish, large mouth bass, redear sunfish, bluegill, and black crappie can be found in these bodies of water.

Within the park proper, one long, moderate, continuous trail winds in and about the grounds with numerous access points. Find out more information on Facebook by clicking here.
