McCormick's Creek fire tower cab reopensAugust 21, 2020
By The Associated Press
SPENCER — An attraction at a south central Indiana state park will re-open to the public Friday after being closed for decades.
The cab of the fire tower at McCormick’s Creek State Park has been generally off limits since the 1980s due to vandalism and for safety reasons, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said.
After the Friends of McCormick’s Creek group funded the tower’s restoration in 2019, members of the public could enter the cab, but only during guided hikes.
The fire tower will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to sunset through November. Next year and in coming years, it will be open March through November. From December through February, the tower will be open only during interpretive programs.
The park is located outside Spencer in Owen County.
