|Facility:||Falls of the Ohio State Park|
|Description:||Located on the banks of the Ohio River in Clarksville, Indiana at I-65 exit 0 is the Falls of the Ohio State Park. The 386-million-year-old fossil beds are among the largest naturally exposed Devonian fossil beds in the world. The park features a spectacular interpretive center overlooking the fossil beds containing an exhibit gallery and video presentation.
Fishing, hiking, fossil viewing, bird watching, and picnicking are among the most common activities.
While fossil collecting is prohibited, the park staff encourages visitors to explore and discover the many different types of fossils that can be found on the ancient sea bottom.
The months of August thru October provide the best accessibility to the 220 acres of fossil beds, as the river is at its lowest level during this period. Questions on general park information, directions, and fossil tour arrangements can be made by contacting the park.
