Pokagon State Park 4 seasons of fun!

On the shores of Lake James and Snow Lake, amid the rolling hills of Indiana’s lake country, Pokagon State Park offers unexcelled opportunities for outdoor recreation during all seasons. In a region where the Potawatomi ruled for many years, the park takes its name “Pokagon” from their last two most notable leaders, Leopold and Simon Pokagon (father and son). By treaty, the Potawatomi transferred to the federal government approximately 1 million acres of land, including the present site of Chicago, at the price of three cents an acre.

The lakes form an attractive background for Pokagon, offering excellent fishing, boating and swimming throughout the summer, and a perfect setting for many winter sports. There are two beaches, 13.7 miles of trails, and ample opportunities to enjoy lake shores, wooded hills, wetlands and open meadows.
