AAA Editor Notes
Big Bone Lick State Historic Site, off SR 338 at 3380 Beaver Rd., is the birthplace of American vertebrate paleontology and the site of prehistoric animal remains. The creatures came to lick the salt produced by the springs and were hunted by Native Americans. A herd of bison may be found by the system of trails, which lead to the active springs and marshy areas. A museum displays some of the items discovered during archeological digs, including massive bones, Native American artifacts and other items recovered during digs at the site.

Recreational activities are permitted. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
