Enjoy a Charity ride through beautiful Indiana State Parks

About the Charity Ride Indiana State Parks

June 27, 2020

The perfect motorcycle ride: A choice of 3 routes through 3 Indiana State Parks and the routes between them. At each park you will stop at stations with volunteers from that property’s Friends Group to help give you the history of the property and guide you through activities.

Friends Groups are non-profit organizations whose sole purpose is the preservation and support of that park.

A Friends Group provides a unique support system for Department of Natural Resources, DNR, properties. Members are people who love our parks and reservoirs and want to help keep them healthy for future generations. Friends group volunteers help with events, work on trails, conduct fundraisers for specific projects and offer other financial support for the purchase of equipment, supplies or other materials as needed. In the process, the people who belong to these groups meet new people, have opportunities to learn and grow and gain the satisfaction of helping support our sites.
