PATOKA PLAYGROUND ■ PAGE 3
Welcome to Patoka Playground! Patoka Reservoir is the second-largest man-made lake in Indiana. But in the Patoka River valley, it remains the biggest point on the map. While the region where the river ambles has seen dozens of other attractions grow up and expand since the lake’s creation in the early 1970s — and several of those attract more visitors — Patoka Reservoir remains the heart of this area’s outdoor activity, and on a grand scale. The 8,800-acre lake continues to be the focal point of Patoka’s 26,000 acres. But the recreation — fishing, swimming, skiing and such — are only byproducts. The project was developed for flood control and that area reaches into Dubois, Crawford and Orange counties. Patoka is the only lake in the state to offer floating cabins, wine cruises and rentable houseboats. It also provides a habitat for freshwater jellyfish and bald eagle nesting sites. River otters and osprey were reintroduced at Patoka by the DNR. The visitors center, located inside the Newton-Stewart State Recreation Area, continues to operate and several programs are planned for this summer. A weekly notice of those programs is published in The Herald. The property’s interpretive services staff presents programs and special events featuring the reconstructed Moery Cabin, a non-releasable red-tailed hawk, bald eagle, Eastern screech owl and other natural and cultural history features of the area. Programs on kayaking, Dutch oven cooking and other outdoor skills are also offered.

PHOTOS COURTESY CRAWFORD COUNTY TOURISM BOARD
Perched on a bluff overlooking the Horseshoe Bend of the Ohio River, the Overlook Restaurant in Leavenworth commands a magnificent panoramic view.
Nature’s beauty, variety fill Crawford County By HAROLD ALLISON Special to The Herald One county I always enjoy visiting when I go on a day trip is Crawford County. Most people pass through Crawford County on either I-64 or State Road 64 and never realize what exciting locations are to be found on either side of these roads. The village of Taswell is a good place to begin our tour of this rugged county. Located on State Road 64, Taswell is a quiet little country town. To its north are two prongs of the scenic Patoka Lake, which at 8,880 acres is Indiana’s second-largest lake. South of Taswell, along the county road that passes under the railroad that runs through the village, is the Yellow Birch Ravine, a state nature preserve. The area is named for a few yellow birch trees that are usually found in northern regions. It is rare to find one this far south. Traveling on to the hamlet of Mifflin, once the site of a salt works, is a low but pretty waterfall on Otter Creek. Along the county road that runs east from Mifflin is a series of wetlands that have been constructed on Hoosier National Forest land. South of Mifflin is another Hoosier National Forest area. This is Hemlock Cliffs, one of the most impressive natural areas in Indiana. The site is well named for there are both hemlock trees and a series of cliffs as well as deep ravines, waterfalls, rock shelters that were utilized by Native Americans for
The ruggedly beautiful Hemlock Cliffs area is hidden away in the Hoosier National Forest and can be accessed by an excellent 1.2 mile hiking trail. hundreds of years, and a large natural arch. The Hoosier has extensive acreage in Crawford County that features such attractions as Carnes Mill, a historic site on the Little Blue River, and Tar Springs, where petroleum and mineral waters reach the surface and which is another historic site
as well as a lovely natural location. Little Blue River, which passes through Crawford County from English to the Ohio River, is a great canoeing stream. A variety of scenic natural features are found all along this Hoosier gem of a river. Along and south of I-64 are several other
interesting sites. The uncommon umbrella magnolia, a southern species, is found in Indiana only in the area east of the village of St. Croix, and Sulphur Springs on State Road 66 is a historic mineral water location now long gone. The Stinking Fork of the Little Blue River, which enters the Little Blue at Sulphur Springs, is named for the mineral waters located near the stream. Some very outstanding natural sites are to be found in this area and are well worth exploring. State Road 66, which runs through both Crawford and Perry counties, is a very scenic road. It can provide an enjoyable road trip through this picturesque southern Indiana countryside. East of State Road 66 on county roads is the Buzzard Roost Overlook on National Forest lands. This is a scenic site above the Ohio River with a somewhat rugged hiking trail that winds down to the Ohio. Farther east on a county road is the river town of Alton, where the Little Blue River runs into the Ohio. From Alton, county roads run along the Ohio past Bulls Point, the Ox Bow Bend of the Ohio, Cape Sandy and Artist Point, which features a great view of the river, Fredonia, a historic site, and Leavenworth. The latter location also features a grand view of the Ohio at the Overlook Restaurant, noted for its fine food as well as its spectacular view of the Ohio.
St. Henry Presents:
The best time of the year is coming, come celebrate the start of Fest season with us. Everyone is welcome, bring the whole family, your appetite and dancing shoes. It's going to be a time to remember by all.

PHOTO COURTESY HOLIDAY WORLD & SPLASHIN’ SAFARI
USA Today named Splashin’ Safari at Holiday World the country’s best water park, with two water coasters, loads of family raft rides and children’s slides.
Spencer County a wild ride of legendary fun By MELISSA BROCKMAN Special to The Herald Imagine going from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds on the nation’s first launched wing roller coaster, sipping frozen hot chocolate inside a historic building, measuring your height against a young Abe Lincoln’s on the very grounds he walked 200 years ago and tasting local wines from the rolling hills of southern Indiana, all in one trip. You can find all of that and much more right in your backyard. Spencer County is home to a wide variety of family-friendly activities throughout Santa Claus and sites commemorating Lincoln’s Indiana Boyhood Home. The town of Santa Claus is a magical and historical place to visit for any age. With the only post office in the world to have the Santa Claus name, thousands of letters pile into this small, charming town annually. Visitors from all over send hand-deliver letters
and Christmas cards to be postmarked from the one-and-only Santa Claus, Indiana. Plan for more than a day of fun at the nationally known Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. In addition to the hoops and loops of the steel roller coaster Thunderbird, the parks also feature TIME Magazine’s choice for the #1 wooden roller coaster in the nation — The Voyage. And USA Today named Splashin’ Safari the country’s best water park, with two water coasters, loads of family raft rides and children’s slides. The parks offer free soft drinks, free parking, free inner tube usage, free sunscreen and free Wi-Fi. Visit the Santa Claus Museum & Village to learn about the history of this picturesque town and see the fully restored 1935 Santa Statue, historic Santa Claus Church and write a letter to Santa in the original Santa Claus Post Office.

ers of all ages. Browse themed shops like the gigantic Santa Claus Christmas Store, Evergreen Boutique & Christmas Shop and Santa’s Toys to find holiday treasures. Experience outdoor recreational activities in Santa Claus, too. Play a round of mini golf at Frosty’s Fun Center or try your swing at the 18-hole Christmas Lake Golf Course. Ride a horse through the winding trails at Santa’s Stables and let the little ones meander around on a pony ride. Only five miles away from Santa Claus is where our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, grew up. Spencer County is where young Abe spent 14 years of his life, from ages 7 to 21. Visit the fertile ground of Lincoln’s childhood home at Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial and see a replica of Lincoln’s homestead at the Living Historical Farm where rangers dress in period clothing and perform pioneer chores from springtime until autumn.
Right across the street from the National Memorial is Lincoln State Park, established as a memorial to Abraham’s mother, Nancy Hanks. Walk the trails on the same grounds Abe walked many years ago and visit the Lincoln Bicentennial Plaza which celebrates his 200th birthday. Explore Lake Lincoln by paddleboat or kayak, and wander the many wooded trails throughout the park. Take a relaxing look back into history with 14 Lincoln-era replica cabins and an artifact-filled museum at the Lincoln Pioneer Village & Museum in Rockport. Stop by the Lincoln Landing where Abe launched his first flatboat trip to New Orleans, inspiring his anti-slavery views. And see the Lincoln Ferry Park that sparked Lincoln’s pursuit to become a lawyer after he was sued over his ferry business. With one of only two archabbeys in the U.S., the Saint Meinrad Archabbey is a must see on every visitor’s list. From beautiful

architecture to the tranquility and peace of the grounds, the Archabbey is a great place to get away and relax in St. Meinrad. For a taste of the country, swing by Monkey Hollow Winery and Distillery in St. Meinrad and Pepper’s Ridge Winery in Rockport. Sipping wine on a covered porch is the perfect way to unwind and enjoy the breathtaking southern Indiana scenery. Also, you don’t want to miss a chance to travel back in time to the good ol’ days of drive-in movie theaters. As one of the few remaining, Holiday Drive-In in Reo now has six screens and two concession stands. With digital projectors, the movie-viewing experience is exceptional while you watch your favorite stars outdoor on the big screen. The Spencer County Visitors Bureau can assist families and groups planning their trip with lodging information, upcoming events, local maps, hours of area businesses and more.
