Prophetstown State Park πŸŒ»

What a nicely designed park. So much to see, learn and do! Surrounded by a tall grass prairie that was the the home of several Native Peoples. The campground itself is modern and well maintained. There are large, clean and private shower houses and easily accessible water fill up and tank dump area. The families are enjoying the large water park, numerous weekend Ranger programs, very nice playgrounds and paved bike trails that connect all the sites and activities. The campsites themselves are large and nicely laid out. We are on the edge of the tall grass and enjoy watching the birds flocking to feed and a tiny rabbit creeps out of the grass to munch on clover in our yard each evening. When I review this park, it will get 5 stars!

Our camping spot has wonderful shade and birdsong

Prophetstown State Park commemorates a Native American village founded in 1808 by Shawnee leaders Tecumseh and his brother Tenskwatawa north of present-day Lafayette, Indiana, which grew into a large, multi-tribal community. The park features an open-air museum at Prophetstown, with living history exhibits including a Shawnee village and a 1920s-era farmstead. Battle GroundIndiana, is a village about a mile east of the site of the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811, a crucial battle in Tecumseh’s War which ultimately led to the demise of Prophetstown. The state park was established in 2004 and receives about 335,000 visitors annually.”
