DNR wants to know what visitors think of state parks

Back To Front Page


Indiana State Parks have created a new comment card which lets users share their thoughts about service, hospitality, and facilities.

“State Parks staff know memories are made at properties in a number of ways: on hikes, around campfires, at family dinners, and through the DNR staff, from those you see and meet when you visit to those who work behind the scenes,” the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said.

The Indiana State Parks team, accordingly, has renewed its focus on service and hospitality using an internally developed program called “Service State Park Style” which emphasizes hospitality as you camp, stay at an inn, or spend a day outdoors in a state park.

“Service State Park Style is, for us, at the heart of providing memorable experiences for our guests,” said Karen Hinton, deputy director of Indiana State Parks. “We want to hear how we are doing with welcoming you, looking for ways to assist you, giving you great ideas for enjoying our parks, and then saying thank you for visiting with an invitation to come back again.”

New printed comment cards are available at park offices, nature centers, and other public buildings to share your thoughts about state park service, hospitality, and facilities. Or go online at

Anyone who completes and submits a printed or online comment along with contact information will be entered in a drawing for a 2021 annual pass later this year.
