Interlake (Lynnville IN) riding area
Interlake State Recreation Area (ISRA), former coal mine land straddling Pike and Warrick Counties, is now open as a multi-use recreational facility. Tom Hartman, owner of Big 4 Cycle, was instrumental with others in the Tri-State area in persuading the state of Indiana to purchase and designate this area for ORV and other shared usages. Interlake is approximately 3550 acres of land with three separate areas of mining and reclamation. From steep rugged spoil banks to rolling hilly grasslands, man-made lakes and final cut strip pits, Interlake is a diverse array of topography and scenic views.
