Canyon Inn @ McCormick's Creek State Park: McCormick's Creek State Park, 5 nights
Type: Conference Center

Description: The Inn features 75 recently renovated guest rooms with private baths and maid service. A dining room, meeting rooms, recreation room and several different lounge areas. The Inn is smoke free and alcohol free. Alcohol is permitted in the individual guests rooms. The Inn is situated in McCormick's Creek, a 1,924 acre Indiana State Park south of Indianapolis and fourteen miles west of Blooming. In 1927 a naturalist program was started, the first in Indiana and the United States. Much of the infrastructure of the park was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps and many of the CCC-built structures, retaining walls, and elegant, arched limestone bridges remain in use today. The park entrance gatehouse and a stone arch bridge over McCormick's Creek are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
