sign = Welcome to the Falls of the Ohio
Falls of the Ohio State Park is a State Park in Indiana, located on the banks of the Ohio River at Clarksville, Indiana, across from Louisville, Kentucky.

The park is part of the Falls of the Ohio National Wildlife Conservation Area. The main feature of the park is the exposed fossil beds of the Jeffersonville Limestone dated from the Devonian period.

WHEN THEY SHOOK HANDS - Lewis and Clark Commemorative Statue The statue of Lewis and Clark was dedicated to the memory of Stephen E. Ambrose on October 26, 2003, during the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial in Clarksville, Indiana. Its temporary home was at the Southern Indiana Visitors Center.

One year later (2004) Lewis and Clark overlook the Falls of the Ohio at their permanent home, the Falls of the Ohio State Park. Mounted on a 16 1/2 ton native slab of Jeffersonville limestone that is between 350-400 million years in age, the statue reminds visitors of the significant part Indiana and the young men of this region played in the epic journey known as the Lewis and Clark Expedition. {http://www.lewisandclarktrail.com/legacy/louisclark/statue.htm}

The Falls of the Ohio was at one time covered by a raging 2 mile stretch of water below Louisville where the Ohio River dropped 22 feet over limestone edges, which now have been reduced greatly and left the area dry.

The two RV Gypsies were able to examine up close the outcroppings and colonies of coral and sponges. Fossils range from the size of a toddler's tiny thumbprint to big enough for an adult to stretch out in full length.

Louisville Metro KOA in Clarksville, Indiana

Louisville Metro KOA - Clarksville, Indiana - Free WI-FI, and our AT&T internet phone worked very fast here. Registered KOA guests had to walk a block to the Holiday Inn Hotel to use their indoor pool. The campground store sells wine and lotto tickets - that's unusual. The campground has self-service gas/diesel and sells propane. Cable TV costs extra. There is also a train track nearby and trains can be heard in the campground at night.
The new yard of the two RV Gypsies - not much of a yard this time. The sites are so close together. This photo was taken before another RV was put on the other side of them also.
