Park Activities

Pokagon State Park is located near Angola, just off I-69. The park was originally called Lake James State Park when proposed to be the fifth Indiana State Park in 1925. The name was changed to Pokagon State Park to acknowledge the rich Native American heritage of the state and region. Leopold and Simon Pokagon were father and son and the last two most notable leaders of the Potawatomi. The park’s Potawatomi Inn takes its name from these Native Americans, who made their home in the area. The inn, with its up-north fishing-lodge theme, is one of the Midwest’s most popular resorts and conference centers.

The horseback ride is $22/person, but the Saddle Barn does take Visa and Master Card.

Wow those Toboggans are heavy -- have someone drive a vehicle that can carry the sled back up the hill

If you're picnicking @ Pokagon, don't forget a trash bag.
