Pack a picnic and come play in one of these places.

Relax and Play in Our Parks

Starke County has a lot of places to stop and have a picnic, or relax and let the kids play. We have beautiful town parks, the Yellow River running through our County, the Kankakee River running along our County line., and 2 beautiful lakes. That kind of landscape makes for many nice places to relax , play, and take in the views.

North Judson has a quiet place

Right off of the downtown area

With places to play & eat

And beautiful hiking trails

Knox, our County Seat, has Wythogan Park with lots of play areas and shelters. The Knox Friends of the Park are building a SkatePark in Wythogan Park. The Park also has a paved walk along the Yellow River for exercise. There are benches for resting or maybe just for contemplation.

In fact you can stroll along the Yellow River hiking path, and walk right by this beautifully renovated Depot, the home of the Starke County Chamber of Commerce and the Tourism Commission.
