Ouabache State Park

We visited Ouabache State Park in northeastern Indiana.
Ouabache is the Indian word for the Wabash River, which forms the parks southern boundery.

The park is smaller than most state parks but packs a lot into a small package.

The park is known for its small herd of bison.
They are in a 20 acre enclosure which was quite different from seeing them roaming in Custer, SD,
but its still a treat to see them.

 There is small Kunkel Lake, where kayaks, paddleboats & rowboats can be rented.

 There are several easy trails, so don't forget your hiking boots.

And bring your bikes.
Its an excellent park for biking.
There is a three mile paved bike path that stretches from one side of the park to the other.

And the bike path continues on along the Wabash River Greenway.

Leading into the nearby town of Blufton, about 10 miles round trip.

And keep an eye out for the unusual black squirrels scampering around.
