Indiana State Forests are a mixed bag. They tend to be a little discontinuous, as they are usually made up of a number of small purchases in the same general area. They are also managed for a number of purposes, including timber harvest, hunting, fishing and horseback riding, as well as hiking. But they offer some pleasant camping opporunities and quiet hiking areas (except during hunting seasons), and most of them are little used. If you just want to get out into the woods and away from it all, these are the places to try.
