Construction projects starting this month will affect guests traveling to Brown County State Park, Clifty Falls State Park and Hardy Lake for part or all of the summer season.

The projects include:
BROWN COUNTY: The north entrance into Brown County State Park, two-miles east of Nashville, will be closed from April 8 – May 9 while repairs are made to the parks historic Ramp Creek Covered Bridge. During the time that the bridge is under repair, park visitors must use the parks west entrance two-miles south of Nashville on State Road 46. Horse campers can continue to use the south entrance into the equestrian campground.
Visitors should call (812) 988-6406 before visiting.
CLIFTY FALLS: Beginning in early April, State Road 256 from Austin to Hardy Lake Road will be closed for a road-widening project.

From I-65, guests should take the Scottsburg exit (S.R.56), and head east toward Madison, then take S.R. 56 east all the way into Madison to access the park. An alternative route is to take S.R. 56 to S.R. 203 north to reach S.R. 256, then head east to Clifty Falls State Park.
