INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana Department of Natural Resources expects more people to visit state parks this summer after a harsh winter.
The Indianapolis Business Journal reports reports that projection is based in part on revenue from year-long passes being up about 8 percent this year through May compared to the same time last year. One-day admissions also are up by 20 percent over last year, as they reeled in about $1.06 million between January and May.
DNR parks and reservoirs division business services program director Christie Sorrells says the sales have spiked in the past four to six weeks after a slow start. The spike happened much more suddenly this year after unusually cold weather lasted well into spring.
