Red Mill County Park

Part of the La Porte County Parks system, this park encompasses 160 acres of forests, meadows, wetlands, and open water, including the headwaters of the Little Calumet River. The park also includes a 108-acre nature preserve with 2.5 miles of hiking trails that traverse the preserve’s varied habitats. In spring, watch for spotted coralroot, a delicate orchid that grows in the oak woodlands here.
