The Hoosier National Forest is a property managed by the United States Forest Service in the hills of southern Indiana. Hoosier National Forest's headquarters are located in Bedford, with a regional office in Tell City.
Composed of four separate sections, it has a total area of 202,814 acres (821 km2; 317 sq mi).
Prominent places within the Forest include the Lick Creek Settlement, Potts Creek Rockshelter Archeological Site, and Jacob Rickenbaugh House.
Much of Hoosier National Forest is over karst, responsible for the many caves in southern Indiana.
Included in Hoosier National Forest is the Charles C. Deam Wilderness Area, the only recognized wilderness area left in Indiana. This means that no motorized vehicles are allowed in the area, and instead mules and horses must be used to maintain hiking trails.
