Looking for a relaxing weekend in the great outdoors? Our beautiful campgrounds make for a relaxing getaway. And with several events going on throughout the summer, you're always a stones throw away from fun!

Horse Park

Did you know Indiana’s finest Equine show facility is located in the center of Johnson County Park? It hosted the 1987 Pan American Games Equestrian Events and the 2001 World Police and Fire Games.

Park for All Abilities

Indiana’s first all-accessible playground area for persons with disabilities. The 13.5 acre park provides the only green space park in White River Township and accommodates walkers, joggers and their furry four-legged friends.

Hiking and Wildlife

Feeling adventurous? Need some exercise? Johnson County Park is home to an abundance of wildlife and hiking trails. So put down the remote, load the family and the dog in the car and come get a breath of fresh air.
