Outdoor Recreation

There’s more to scenic Southern Indiana than what meets the eye. Adventure lovers can canoe down Blue River located in the heart of cave country. Enjoy a quick rest or a picnic lunch along the public gravel bars and beach areas and stay on the lookout for the abundant wildlife including turtles, eagles, otters, and more. Half day, full day, and even two-day trips are available for all skill levels and abilities. Take in more scenery while hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding on 25 miles of trails at O’Bannon Woods State Park.

Below the rolling hills, majestic forests, and winding Blue River lies a secretive network of caverns and caves just waiting to be explored. Guided tours take you deep into our greatest natural treasure where you can walk alongside underground streams, investigate captivating cave formations, discover fossils, and observe fascinating plant and animal life hundreds of feet below the earth’s surface. Tours vary in length and terrain, but most are easy walks the whole family can enjoy. And with a constant temperature of 52 degrees, the caves are a perfect outing all year long.

After diving below the earth, it’s time to fly high. Harness yourself for the zipline ride of your life at Squire Boone Caverns Zipline Adventures, zooming over caverns and treetops. From introductory trips designed to give newbies just a taste of zipline action to whizzing down Indiana’s longest zipline, we have an exciting excursion for everyone. If you’re a true adventure enthusiast, be sure to check out the Bat Chaser aerial coaster for the thrill of a lifetime. Riders summit a 50-foot tower before twisting and turning 603 feet to the ground with the option to free fall. This ride’s a Corydon must-do!
