Harmonie State Park combines history, outdoor recreation and stunning river vistas to provide a wonderful family friendly vacation spot. Its location on the banks of the lovely Wabash River provides a wonderful place for fishing and boating on its waters. Trails and picnic tables line its bank and an access ramp allows boaters to lower their watercraft into the river. The picnic area is a wonderful place to watch stunning sunsets over the river.
History buffs will enjoy nearby Historic New Harmony. This fascinating village provides a unique look into two experiments in communal living. Both occurred early in Indiana history here in New Harmony. The Rappites and Harmonites both tried to establish communal living at New Harmony. Neither community succeeded in doing this. However, they left behind a fascinating story, architecture, and community that survives for people to study and enjoy.
