Harrison County, Indiana Offers Fun for Everyone

This beautiful area boasts ancient caverns, zipline adventures and the historic Old Capitol in Corydon.

Harrison, Indiana

In the heart of Southern Indiana lies a county known for its beauty and recreational offerings – but you have to look below the surface to see some of its most intriguing features – the caves.

Explore the famous Indiana Caverns, Squire Boone Caverns or Indiana Cave Trail. Cave tours can be booked as a multi-day trip for families interested in getting to know the cave system. Indiana Caverns opens two new attractions that will entertain the entire family: Escape Rooms and Bat Chaser. Escape Rooms immerse you in adventure as teams work together to solve puzzles, uncover clues and beat the clock to solve the mystery in this unique interactive experience. Opening in 2019, Bat Chaser combines ziplining and free falling in a family-friendly experience. A suspended single rail zip coaster soars past tree tops, giving its riders the feel of both hang gliding and riding in an underslung gravity-powered coaster. It is only the second ride of its kind to be built in the United States.

For more outdoor fun, visit Squire Boone Caverns Zipline Adventures and soar through the trees on a ride that will get your adrenaline pumping and take you through Harrison County’s gorgeous scenery. The whole family will love Golf Shores Fun Center, which features two 18-hole mini golf courses, an arcade, coffee shop and even party rooms.

For adult members of the group, a tour of the local wineries is a perfect way to spend the day, and Harrison County has four of them. Or adults can head to Horseshoe Southern Indiana Casino, which offers more than 100 gaming tables and 2,000 slots.
