For a day of fishing, camping, hunting or just rest and relaxation, Greene-Sullivan State Forest is one of themost beautiful and serene places to visit. Greene-Sullivan was founded in 1936 when various coalcompanies donated more than 3,000 acres of property to the Department of Natural Resources, Divisionof Forestry. But that was just the beginning. Now the forest boasts almost 8,000 acres of beautifulwoodland and rolling hills dotted with more than 120 lakes, making it one of the most unique areas inIndiana.

If you're not fishing or camping, there's still something for you at Greene-Sullivan State Forest. Otherfavorite activities include hunting, picnicking, mushroom hunting, horseback riding, photography andwildlife viewing.

This has become my favorite place to go trail riding. The trails are very well maintained and offer something for everyone. Whether you like flat trails or a challenge, you will find it here. The day camp and overnight camping areas are nice also.

April 19 Simply Wonderful!!! by Mark
Camping is primative, if you like that sort of thing, it is very good but you do have alot of other campers near by. Not truely Primative or deep in the woods. Fishing? Some of the best in Indiana as far as strip pits go. Some of the lakes are so clear it is like fishing in a giant aquariam. Loved it.
