If you’re looking for a day trip, this gem of a place is really just across the bridge from Louisville, KY.
This, is a fantastic place. This state park is in Clarksville, IN. We just happened to stay in this town when we were in Louiville on vacation. It was a little cheaper for our family and so close to Louisville. I really didn’t even know this park exhisted, but then found mention of it in a travel guide at the hotel.. WOW! that’s all I can say.
As quoted from their site : “The 390-million-year-old fossil beds are among the largest, naturally exposed, Devonian fossil beds in the world”
