We all have our favorite outdoor places. One of mine is Potato Creek State Park.
As a child, it’s where my parents took us camping. I caught my first bass standing on the boat ramp casting a River Runt with a little spin cast combo. My outdoor roots are traceable to this park. During Labor Day weekend, I visited Potato Creek and was reminded why I hold it in such esteem.
First of all, Indiana’s State Park system doesn’t have a bad park. Hoosiers are extremely fortunate to live in a state that takes such pride in our parks. From Clifty Falls to the Indiana Dunes, and at all the parks in-between, you’ll find diverse opportunities to enjoy nature in safe and scenic settings.
I believe Potato Creek is special because it doesn’t really have a specialty. What it has is a little bit of everything.
