Thank you for supporting your great Indiana DNR properties when you visit and pay for gate entrance, lodging, and other activities. All user fees go to dedicated accounts that support the day-to-day operation of these properties. Approximately 91 percent of the operating costs at Indiana State Parks is generated through user fees. Your tax dollars (about 53 cents per Hoosier annually) contribute the other 9 percent.
Indiana’s state parks and state forests are great outdoor places where memories are made. They play an important economic role in nearby communities by providing jobs and serving as partners in local and regional tourism. Our state parks and state forests are also important places to play, walk, run, bike and swim for healthy exercise.
