Fort Harrison State Park

6000 North Post Road

Fort Harrison State Park is a 17,000 acre park featuring more than six miles of walking and jogging trails, designated picnic areas, fishing access, and preservation of the former Citizen's Military Training Camp, Civilian Conservation Corps camp, and a World War II POW camp at the park's headquarters.

Fort Harrison State Park is a state park for many seasons for many reasons. Patrons may enjoy visiting the park all year round, especially in winter since Fort Harrison features the Sledding Hill, one of the biggest in this area. Spring is the season to walk with the woodland wildflowers in full bloom across the park. Summer is the perfect time for a canoe trip down Fall Creek, the major water feature that runs through the north side of Fort Harrison. Autumn brings warm, sunny days and breathtaking fall colors to this, the last forested corner left in Marion County.

Nice beautiful peaceful place. Very inexpensive and sometimes even free. Everyone here is VERY nice. There are a TON of playgrounds throughout the park and even horses! The trails are quite amazing too, and there isn't very many people at this park either. Highly recommend, this has always been my favorite park!

Recently spent some time as a large group at a pavilion. The area was beautiful and we backed right up to a milkweed garden with lots of beautiful butterflies. Only complaint was there are no trash cans anywhere in the park. As a courtesy I spent some time cleaning up others trash. Please consider adding trash bin to help keep the park clean.

The park itself is great, great trails, plenty of places to picnic, great fishing, playing on playground equipment with my son. However the young lady at the stables is rude. I know people that raise horses and there is no way my son was too big for the ponies he weighs 65lbs soaking wet and I am grown and have been on a pony before, everything for a buck, horses are stronger than that and they said 5 and under. I have seen 5 yr olds that weigh more than my 10 year old and it should go by weight and not age if they're so worried about the ponies. Last I recall the horses were cheaper in brown county anyways.

Great large park near to Indianapolis! I go here often to walk the trails with my dog. Very clean grounds, other patrons always good about carrying out their waste so the park stays nice! I know people who have held Family Reunions and such there and they said the reservation process for pavilions is very easy!

I have been going to For Harrison for years. This place has pretty large jogging trails and beautiful views. It is a great choice for family and special occasion photographs. It is also the perfect place for a picnic, dog walking and a nice place for children to play. There is a ton of parking in various parts if the park. There are creeks off some if the trails where many people let their dogs play. If you go often, it is very worth purchasing a yearly park pass, which also does work for the other state parks such as Eagle Creek and others. If I remember correctly, they are around $35-$40 a year.
