Pumpkin-spice lattes, candles, and muffins are making their yearly debut, and the Fort Wayne weather is giving hints that fall is fast-approaching. If you’re like many people, you may be itching to plan a trip to take in the beautiful fall foliage that Indiana has to offer. ABC Auto Van & RV Rental can help you scratch that itch with our top Indiana getaways to view the fall colors.
Brown County State Park
Nestled in the hills an hour south of Indianapolis, Brown County State Park has been called the “mini-Smokies” because of the breathtaking landscapes. During the fall, the colors generally change in mid-October, but every year the peak time may differ. We suggest an RV rental for this trip since it’s the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the colorful splendor of the season. Buffalo Ridge and Raccoon Ridge Campground are located within the park.
Turkey Run State Park
Whether you like to hike, canoe, or fish, or you like the idea of staying at the Turkey Run Inn to view the autumn colors from the historic lodge, we recommend a weekend trip to Turkey Run State Park. Along with abundant trees, there is much to see when you visit this West Central Indiana park. It boasts hiking trails that include ancient potholes, like the famous punch bowl, and sandstone formations around every corner. The trip is beautiful and can be affordable as well. If you’re planning to take a large group, consider a passenger van rental so you can arrive with ease and in comfort.
Clifty Falls State Park
If you enjoy fossils or scenic drives by the Ohio River, take a visit to Clifty Falls State Park just northeast of Louisville. The park is located on top of a fossil bed where you can see marine creatures that lived long ago. With hiking trails, tunnels, waterfalls, and more, it is the perfect place to surround yourself with the beauty of the changing leaves as well as plenty of things to do for everyone in the family.
