Spring Mill State Park

Located in Mitchell, Indiana is Spring Mill, State Park.  It's about an hour and 45 minutes from Evansville, so it's not a far drive at all. Perfect for a day trip, or to go spend the weekend.  Plus there's SO MUCH to do around Spring Mill State Park.

When I was a kid my grandparents would often take my cousins and me up to Spring Mill State Park where we'd walk through the Pioneer Village, ride boats through the Twin Cave Boat Tour, and hike the trails. We always had such a great time, so Spring Mill State Park definitely has a special place in my heart.  However, I've never seen Spring Mill State Park at night, and this event would be a super cool way to experience the trails in the evening.
