New park progressing to reality State closer to acquiring Cave River Valley land By ROGER MOON February 1, 2009 Times Mail, (IN)
CAMPBELLSBURG — By late spring or early summer, outdoor enthusiasts should again be able to enjoy the 316-acre Cave River Valley Park.
The park, just across the Lawrence County line and near Campbellsburg in Washington County, is now under the watchful eye of Spring Mill State Park. Last summer, Bert Engler sold the property to the Indiana Nature Conservancy, and it’s about to be sold to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.
Mark Young, Spring Mill State Park property manager, said Friday, “The process to purchase the property from the Nature Conservancy is not complete yet. We’re waiting for one more approval, a grant through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
