Hoosier National Forest

German Ridge Recreation Area

Nestled in the rolling hills of southern Perry County you will find the German Ridge Recreation Area. The German Ridge campground and recreation facility dates back to the 1930's when the Civilian Conservation Corp. (CCC) constructed some of the buildings and drainage structures still evident today. Several years ago this campground was converted for horse users and a 25 mile trail system was developed for their use and enjoyment. This is a multiple use trail system and is shared with mountain bikers and hikers.
