Indiana State Park of the Week

PROPHETSTOWN STATE PARK

(765) 567-4919
5545 Swisher Road
West Lafayette, IN 47906
 Indiana’s newest state park, Prophetstown is located where the Tippecanoe River meets the Wabash near the town of Battle Ground northeast of Lafayette. The park’s landscape has been shaped by ice from glaciers, moving water, fire and human hands that helped maintain the vast tall prairie grass. Native American people hunted and lived along the two rivers for thousands of years.

Take I-65 to Exit 178/SR 43 north of Lafayette. Go south on SR 43 for a very short distance and turn left onto Burnett Road. Take a right on 9th Street to Swisher Road. This is a hard left immediately after the veterinary office. Once on Swisher Road, cross over the I-65 and find the park gatehouse.

Everyday including holidays, includes entrance into The Farm at Prophetstown.

  • Noncommercial vehicles with Indiana license plates: $8.
  • Noncommercial vehicles with out-of-state license plates: $10.
