Celebrate #FamilyFunFriday at one of our a favorite recreational attractions here in Lawrence County. Bring the kids for an exciting adventure!
Midwest Trail Ride
Midwest Trail Ride is a privately owned Horseman’s Campground bordering the Hoosier National Forest. Enjoy access to nearly 100 miles of well-marked trails in the timeless beauty of the Deam National Wilderness with lakes, streams, diverse stands of hardwoods, evergreens and wildflowers… all to make your ride unforgettable.
At a cool 52 degrees year round and 100 feet below the surface of the earth, explore an underground river. Guides pilot custom-made boats along the subterranean river for over a mile, pointing out native rare Northern blind cave fish and blind crawfish and explain the natural forces that are yet at work creating great chambers below the rolling hills of southern Indiana.
