Brown County State Park and its Abe Martin Lodge have been drawing guests to southern Indiana since 1932. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources wanted to enhance the experience for the guests and increase the number of annual lodge visitors. Following the lead of commercial hotels around the country, they wanted to add an Aquatic Center. How to blend the beautiful rustic scenery around the Abe Martin Lodge with a 11,000-square-foot indoor aquatic center became the challenge for Schmidt Associates. The Aquatic Center was designed to connect and complement the two existing buildings on site, making it look like it has always been there. This modern Aquatic Center features a design that is rustic on the inside and complimentary to the lodge on the outside.

“Overall, the aquatic center is a fantastic facility and has been a huge success. Occupancy rates for the Inn were always high during peak season but struggled during the off season; particularly during the winter.”
““We’ve always wanted a pool at the Abe Martin Lodge, and creating the first-of-its-kind indoor aquatic center was an exciting, new experience for an Indiana State Park.”
