In 1964, Peabody Coal Company deeded 1,100 acres of reclaimed strip mine ground to the Town of Lynnville for recreational purposes. Today, Lynnville Park is more popular than ever as a haven for fisherman and campers alike.
Lynnville Park features a 275 acre lake stocked with largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish. Visitors can utilize the park's concrete boat ramp and handicap-accessible fishing pier while in search of the day's big catch; Jon boat rental is also available. Campers can choose from nearly 24 modern sites and over 30 primitive ones.
Lynnville Park features bike trails and is host to the Black Coal National Enduro, a regional event drawing dirt bike riders from throughout the Tri-State. The park also hosts hare scrambles for the LA Dirt Riders .
One of Lynnville Park's unique features is the Wahnsiedler Observatory, home of the Evansville Astronomical Society. If you dream of spending a night gazing at the stars, check out the observatory's two telescopes: a 14 inch Celestron Schmitt-Cassegrain reflector and a 12. 5 inch Cave Newtonian reflector on a clock-driven, computerized equatorial mount.
