That would be the fire tower(that's what we've always called it), this is north of Bedford, Indiana, this location and north of Norman, Indiana has several good trails!!! If you get into doing the GPS hunt there's several locations all thru the forestry that has cache sites that you locate, people will add things to the waterproof box and right their name on the ledger and where their from, I've found many of these while I was mushroom hunting!!! If you don't carry a pistol(please don't be afraid I'm an outdoorsman who always over thinks things,lol) take a small can of wasp killer or pepper spray!!! I don't want anything to disrupt your journey!!!/:0), p.s. please let me know how it went as I've moved to SC and I miss my old stomping grounds!!!/:0)

There is no fee to enter the forest. There are many places throughout the forest where you may enter. There are also many primitive campgrounds within the forest. Most of these have no fee. It is really quite a nice place to visit and covers a large area of Southern Indiana. Spring Mill SP is separate from the Hoosier National Forest. Any fee you pay there is not applicable.
