New Outdoor Indiana issue features:

Harmonie State Park
Outdoor Indiana magazine’s July-August issue will help you learn the secrets behind what some call “. . . the Undiscovered Jewel of Southwest Indiana.” The gem is the 3,456 acres of Harmonie State Park in Posey County on the Wabash River.

There’s an eight-page full-color removable and collectable insert on the park in the magazine. The article may tell even park veterans stories they may not know about their favorite hangout. The feature continues a series in which one state park or reservoir property is featured per issue. The series runs through 2016, the 100th anniversary of Indiana state parks.

Other highlights in the latest issue include the cover article previewing September’s annual Indiana Seaplane Fly-In at Pokagon State Park, and a feature on the state’s record fish program.

Outdoor Indiana is available now at most DNR properties and most Barnes & Noble stores in Indiana for $3 a copy. If you love the outdoors, you’ll love Outdoor Indiana magazine’s subscription rate of $12 a year for six issues. To subscribe, go to or call (317) 233-3046.

Outdoor Indiana magazine also features record fish program
Outdoor Indiana magazine’s July-August issue lends credence to some of those fish tales your neighbors may be telling. A feature article and color photos document the state’s record fish program; the record-setters, their stories and techniques; and the 37 fish species for which state records have been established.
