One of the most beautiful parks in the South Shore, Deep River encompasses more than 1,200 acres on both the south and north sides of U.S. Highway 30 about 4.5 miles east of Interstate 65.
Unique to the park is Wood's Grist Mill from the 1800's. Today corn meal is ground using the large mill stones from May through October (days and times vary).
Next door, the Deep River Visitor Center, housed in the remains of a 1904 church, offers a variety of specialty items and hand made crafts. Deep River's own pure maple syrup is available during Maple Syrup Time during the first of March each year.
It is also home to the Deep River Grinders who play old time baseball under 1858 rules and attire from May through October.
The park includes hiking trails, historical buildings, playground, cross country ski trails (no rentals), BBQ facilities plus hayrides in September and October.
