Been there a lot for camping and hiking. Great trails. Some fishing. Picnic areas, some with shelter houses.

Start at the Duck Lake area. Playground, window on wildlife, meeting rooms, and the starting point for easy walking trails of varying length. OOP also has a campground, bridle trails and the north fork of the Wabash Cannonball hiking/biking trail runs through it.

We moved near the park a few years ago, it wasn't a deciding factor but what a added bonus, we frequent the park, both for biking and walking. Also enjoyed the primitive camping sites

I've gone to Oak Openings my whole life. It's one of the most peaceful places I know. The areas vary so much. Good well marked hiking trails of varied lengths. Now my Grandsons are going.

This is one of the nicest parks in the area, especially for cyclist. Lots of miles of trail, with beautiful scenery and water. Its a drive for us, but well worth it.

This truly is a great park. Many trails and beautiful scenery. I especially loved the sand dunes. While the bathrooms weren't particularly clean, everything else was awesome. I'd recommend spending a day or two here.

I would like to have a small reunion, about 20 people on the second Saturday of July. Would I need to request a reservation for a shelter or just be able to show up to use?
