Camping, fishing, hiking? All this and more! Located 4 miles west of Logansport on US 24 (see map below), Indiana residents have come to know and love the outdoor recreational facility, France Park, for its scenic trails, waterfall, clear swimming lake with picturesque cliffs, quiet fishing areas, and spacious camping facilities. The 7-10 miles of trails are active all year long with hiking, mountain biking, and winter-time cross-country skiing. The swimming lake is an abandoned spring-fed quarry that attracts SCUBA divers from far away. France Park offers the camping enthusiast both primitive and modern camping with bathrooms, showers, water and electrical hook-ups.
There is now an excellent video with a description of the park, including underwater footage of the swimming lake. Go to http://divingden.com then click on the video "France Park by David Hall."
