Charlestown State Park Day Hike

In this video I take you along with me on a rainy day hike in Charlestown State Park in Charlestown, Indiana. This park sits right on the Ohio River, and is very rich in history. For this hike, I hiked trails 3 and 7 which led me down to the banks of the Ohio River. This is a very well-marked, and mostly paved hike. This trail took me down to the historic Rose Island, which was sort of an amusement park in the early 20th century. There were still many remnants of the park left to enjoy which you will see in the video.

Before going any further though, I do want to apologize because I kept pronouncing this place as “CharlesTON” instead of “CharlesTOWN”. My bad :-)

One thing that was nice about this particular hike, is that because it was rainy and in late November, I had the trail all to myself. Along the trail were many signs, and interactive kiosks that told the history of the park, which was nice too.

Here are a couple of links you may find helpful if you are ever decide to check out the area:
