INDOT has advised of a road closure on SR 8 about 1 mile east of Albion that may well affect your commute to Black Pine. INDOT's posted detour will drive traffic several miles north and for an extreme distance - adding time and cost. Please review our recommendations below for a local detour option for typical passenger vehicles. (For an alternate route for buses or other large trucks, please click here.)
This road closure is expected to be in effect for up to three months, until early to mid June, 2015. If you are traveling from Fort Wayne you may also avoid the closure by traveling via SR 3 north to Baseline Road, then west to SR 9 North to Albion; or by US Highway 33 N to SR 9 N to Albion. Our Google map may help you choose your best route.

We are now booking appointments for Private Tours for ages 10 and up. Private tours offer the opportunity to see the animals during the "off-season". Private Tours will be available by appointment, weather and staff levels permitting, now until the 2015 season begins on May 2. More information...
