MARSHALL, Ind. -- Lt. Governor Becky Skillman unveiled the cover of the 2009 Indiana Travel Guide featuring Turkey Run State Park in Marshall, located in Parke County.
The image shows a family enjoying a canoe ride, one of many outdoor activities available at Indiana's second oldest state park.
Turkey Run is best known for its deep canyons and rock formations, creating some of the most scenic and rugged hiking in the state.
All four 2009 Indiana travel publications feature new cover photographs including the Travel Guide, Festival Guide, Travel Map and Golf & Travel Guide.
"Turkey Run is one of our most popular state parks," Lt. Governor Skillman said. "And with 750,000 of the Travel Guides in print, the potential to attract new visitors is tremendous."
"What a great honor to have Turkey Run State Park selected for the cover of the 2009 Travel Guide," Director of the Division of State Parks and Reservoirs (DNR) Dan Bortner said.
"We're delighted this park was chosen to showcase the many wonderful state parks we have in Indiana.
"We hope this helps Hoosiers, as well as visitors elsewhere, realize the many terrific natural treasures we have," Bortner continued.
