Fodor's Review

Named for Chief Big Foot of the Potowatomi tribe, this state park gets busy during summer season for its 100 campsites, 6.5 miles of color-coded hiking trails, kayak rentals, 40 acres of shaded picnic space, and free loans of volleyballs, horseshoes and fishing equipment for kids. Better yet, simply soak up the sun on the 1,900 feet of lakefront and 100-foot marked swimming areathat's not lifeguarded, so swim safely.
