Indiana’s newest state park, Prophetstown is located where the Tippecanoe River meets the Wabash near the town of Battle Ground. The park's landscape has been shaped by ice from glaciers, moving water, fire that helped maintain the vast tallgrass prairie and human hands. Native Americans hunted and lived along the two rivers for thousands of years. French trappers and traders found the land teeming with wildlife, and European farmers discovered that the rich, deep prairie soils grew healthy corn and wheat.
Through a unique partnership with The Farm at Prophetstown, visitors can discover 1920s farm lifestyles and take a stroll through 900 acres of restored prairie. Visit restored native habitats, such as wetlands, wet slopes called fens, prairie and open woodlands as well as hiking, birding and biking.
