We are excited to bring the Ripley County Park Hop to you for a third year! This year, we have added more events and activities including the scavenger hunt, pop-up park activities and story walks. Get your passport today!

Join us on Sunday, May 1st for the Park Hop Finale at Versailles State Park where kids can collect prizes based on the number of clues they found while visiting the parks throughout the county. We’ll have swag bags for the first 200 participants and you’ll be entered into the grand prize drawings for State Park passes, outdoor gear, and more.

Kid’s Discovery Factory will have mobile exhibits and our friends at Versailles State Park  will be on hand with some TURTLES and other critters from the Nature Center! It’s “Welcome Back Weekend” at VSP so entry to the park is FREE for the whole day.  Come early or stay late and enjoy all the Versailles State Park has to offer – hiking, walking,  and mountain bike trails, kayaking, birdwatching, and more!
