Chain of Lakes
Nine interconnecting lakes at Chain of Lakes State Park create a paradise for boat lovers. Located in the midst of Indiana's lake country, the lakes connect via small channels that a canoe or kayak may pass through. The lakes combine for over two hundred surface acres and seven miles of shoreline.

Family Cabins
The cabins offer privacy and comfort with bedrooms, living areas, kitchens and bathroom facilities. The cabins do not have maid service so visitors must bring their own towels, bedding, plates and silverware. Full weekly rental only is available during the months of June, July, and August. During April, May, September and October cabins are available on a nightly basis. There are eighteen cabins with play area and play field nearby. There is also a boat dock on Long Lake near the cabins. Trail 6 gives cabin residents access to the other trails and other amenities of the park.

Glacial Esker Nature Preserve

Hiking Trails
The state park includes ten hiking trails that total over fourteen miles in length. The trails range in difficulty from rugged to easy and traverse a range of terrain from forest to open field to wetland.
