Explore The Pristine Geist Reservoir When You Visit This Underrated Indiana State Park
While there are many state parks to explore in Indiana, Fort Harrison State Park might be one of the most underrated. Not only will this park make you feel miles away from it all while still being close to home, it’s also home to beautiful nature views all year—including being attached to the pristine Geist Reservoir. Once you wander through this Lawrence park and take in all of the views, you can walk beside an old reservoir that’s some of the cleanest water around. Next time you’re looking for a unique nature escape in Indiana, head to Fort Harrison State Park in Lawrence and lay your eyes upon the massive Geist Reservoir beside it.
