Cool Off With The DNR At The Indiana State Fair

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources Building is the place to be during the Indiana State Fair, happening August 5-21.

Located in the northwest area of the Fairgrounds, DNR’s building not only is one of the few with air conditioning but also houses the best information, wild animals, and fun.

Stop by the Fishin’ Pond, which is open daily. Children ages 5-17 can fish for free every day of the Fair.

On Sunday, join the DNR for the annual Taste of the Wild cookout. You can sample all sorts of wild fish and game for free from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. On Aug. 13-14 there will be activities regarding migratory birds in the DNR building.

While you are cooling off inside the DNR building, pick up the latest recreation guide, fishing guide, hunting & trapping guide, boating guide, off-road vehicle guide and much more.
