The winter highlight here is, of course, the toboggan run. Face your fears and flex your muscles. The toboggan run at Pokagon State Park is not for the weak bodied or weak minded. Tobogganers reach speeds of up to 40mph screaming down iced steel chutes. Super fun! Then, you must carry your 50 lb sled the 1/4 mile back - all uphill. A nice fire pit midway up is good for warming cold toes, and then you get to do it all again.

Cross country skis are available for rent at a truly inspirational lodge built in the 1930s by the CCC, where we also made s'mores in the gigantic fireplace. A nice Nature Center features live native critters and tons of taxidermy, and was filled with charming old-school exhibits on the history of Indiana and the park itself. A ranger-led nature hike out onto the frozen lake taught us about identifying animal tracks and Indiana's glacial history.

We had such a great time, we made a pact to make this an annual winter getaway. And maybe even slip in a weekend in the summer!

Beautiful ! We were just passing through Angola but it was a nice place to stop for the night ! Only thing I didn't like was they still charge you the park entrance fee on top of the camping spot. I think it should be included but that's just me
