Spring Mill State Park

Hiking? Golfing? Watersports? Fitness classes?

No matter what you enjoy, odds are Lawrence County has it!

Spring Mill State Park is a beautiful, historic area famous for it's glorious fall color, virgin timbers, flowing cave springs, and rolling terrain. It's a great place for year-round hiking, camping, horseback riding, swimming, boating and fishing. 

Monroe Lake, also a remarkably scenic area, is a great place for watersports and hiking.

Our seven community parks offer swimming, tennis, playgrounds, picnic facilities, and youth activities. 

Golfers love Lawrence County! Our park system boasts one of the finest 18-hole golf courses in southern Indiana plus four privately-owned courses. (For more information about our golf courses, click here.)

Bedford is home to several fitness clubs and wellness centers, each offering a variety of classes and programs.
