Tourism Opportunities

Some smaller type parks as you pass through the small towns and then there is the Prophetstown State Park near Battle Ground. Monticello is home to Indiana Beach Boardwalk Resort and Amusement Park. It is also sandwiched by Lakes Freeman to the south and Lake Shaffer on the north. Lots of fishing and fun in this area. Near Logansport is France Park, a converted rock quarry that has a stunning waterfall and swimming area underneath. Lake Cicott is available for fishing as well. Peru, the end point, has the International Circus Hall of Fame because it was the winter home of several circuses. Famous folks include Emmett Kelly, circus clown, and Cole Porte, songwriter, have roots in this town. Also captured white girl who was raised by the local Indians of the day, Frances Slocum is buried nearby. (They had to move her grave when the Mississinewa Reservoir was built.) Also one of the last manufacturers of calliopes is in Peru.
