Step away from today’s busy world and into the peace of yesteryear. The George Rogers Clark Historic Park offers a personal outdoor experience for every visitor.

Bring the family for a picnic by the water or in the shade of a 300-year-old beech-maple forest. Hike five miles of nature trails by 250 acres of green meadows and abundant wildflowers, scenic waterways, bird, deer and turtle habitats. All ages can fish without a license at Hosterman Lake, or take a non-motorized boat out for a relaxing trip across the water.

Historic Battlesite

Explore the origins of Clark County at the nearby Peckuwe Village battle site. The Peckuwe Village was once a large settlement of Shawnee Indians and their British allies, located at the current George Rogers Clark Park. In 1780, the American Colonel Clark attacked the British stockade and drove the Shawnee out of Clark County. The battle was the largest of the American Revolution west of the Allegheny Mountains. Visit the multiple memorials located throughout the park that honor those who impacted our region’s history, including Tecumseh and George Rogers Clark.
