Hello! I have been to a few of the parks around the state, and plan to visit more this coming summer. I have been to Midwest, it's a PHENOMENAL facility! Very clean and well maintained, stalls for your horse, cabins if you want them, a restaurant on the site, lovely shower/bathroom facilities. Really, really nice. They have beautiful trails too.
I have also been to Greene Sullivan in Dugger Indiana. It's definitely a bit more rugged than Midwest, but the trails are awesome! They have every level you could want, from very easy to single tracks winding up, down, and around. Very reasonable camping fees, and they also have a day ride parking area. No showers, but they do have a port-o-potty style bathroom. It is a first come first serve type of place, the first time we went were actually the only ones there.
JW Jones is a great place to day ride, from what I've heard camping is no longer an option due to dumb-dumbs vandalizing.
I have also been to Corydon in O'Bannon forest. Great place, but very challenging trails with a lot of rock.

Question -- was just on the DNR site looking at the info for the parks that are horse friendly (DNR: Equestrian) and I am a bit puzzled by something. I knew about the "horse tag" we'd need, but then read the part about having "appropriate paperwork" available for each horse and clicked the link that was on the page which took me to the site for the State Board of Animal Health, but the information there read like it was in regards to bringing a horse across state lines into Indiana with talk of health certificates, etc done w/in 30 days of entry to the state, etc -- which, to me, doesn't really address horses who LIVE in Indiana being taken into the parks to be ridden. So, what paperwork IS needed to be able to have your horse on the trails in the IN state parks? I want to be sure we have everything right so DD and I (and maybe even DH and I) can get out there and hit the trails ---

Hmm yes it is kind of confusing lol :) But anyways, state law says that you always should have coggins and health papers when traveling acorss state line. You can get fined ticketed and what-not, but as far as riding at the state parks they honestly don't even check. Even our Indiana resident horses are supposed to have them when we go to another park but we never do and I know personally that many of the parks we have been to including Whitewater have never checked. You must however buy a bridle tag for each horse either an annual one or day use tag. Then pay the gate enterance fee. If you are camping of couse there are other costs. Hope this helps to answer your questions. :)

That does help, thank you! I expected a "use" fee (DH is a fisherman and I am used to paying the watercraft annual fee for his boat) and that is good, too, because he always buys the annual entrance pass so we can just use his, lol. I'm assuming it is like with a boat/trailer that the annual admission pass covers your vehicle and the horse trailer, right?

Exactly, I think it was $25 for the tag and it's good for the year in all of the state parks. We didn't have to show any paperwork. Just make sure to keep it on you when riding, you never know when you might get checked,lol.

I always have coggins/health certs in the truck, I've never once been asked for them at any of the parks. Brown Co. Did do a head count on the way in and on the way out though, rather sad that they have to do that.

I've got exciting news, by this weekend I will be the proud new owner of an aluminum Sundowner with weekender pkg so we can do more overnight trail rides! Now I really can't wait for Spring!!!!

The trail at Strawtown Koteewi park in Noblesville was pretty fun. It was the first trail away from home that we'd been to. There are a few wooden bridges, shallow water to ride through, good hills, and plenty of shade in the woods. I just remember the mosquitoes being AWFUL during the time I went (around May). It was quiet, only came across one biker and one jogger the whole time we were there.
