Falls of the Ohio State Park

Falls of the Ohio State Park is located on the banks of the Ohio River in Clarksville, Indiana (one mile west of I-65). The 390-million-year-old fossil beds are among the largest exposed Devonian fossil beds in the world. In the late summer and fall, visitors can “dry snorkel” on the coral beds. The diverse upper fossil beds are visible except when the river is higher than normal. The park features an architecturally unique interpretive center overlooking the fossil beds. Inside you will find a “walk-under” mammoth skeleton, hands-on exhibits, wildlife viewing room, and an 11 minute movie that explains about the Falls of the Ohio as it relates to the early phases of the Corps of Discovery.
