Summertime at the Falls of the Ohio

Don’t let summer pass you by without a visit to the Falls of the Ohio!

It’s summer! The time of year we have all been waiting for, filled with picnics, camps, family outings and new places to explore. When was the last time you visited the Falls of the Ohio State Park and Interpretive Center? If it’s been awhile, or if you have yet to make your first visit, you are in for a real treat. As one of the largest exposed Devonian fossil beds in the world, the launching site for the historic Lewis and Clark expedition, and a designated National Wildlife Conservation Area, it is no wonder the Falls of the Ohio is referred to as the Crown Jewel of the region.

Tour the state-of-the-art, interactive exhibits in the revitalized Interpretive Center, where you will experience the Ancient Sea, a Changing Land, Converging Cultures and the Falls Today. Then head out to explore the fossil beds on your own, or learn from knowledgeable park staff and volunteers about the 390 million year old creatures whose fossils remain today.

Other outdoor activities at the Falls include fishing, hiking, birding, biking on the Ohio River Greenway, picnicking, and boating. Check out all of these opportunities and the program of events.

Great adventures await you at the Falls of the Ohio!
