“A good trail for beginners to experience an overnight loop.”— Mark B8
There is a fee to enter the park, and there is a fee to use a backcountry campsite also. Visit the Interpretive Center at the trailhead, where there is a patch available for the hike. You'll need waterproof footgear and sun screen; hiking through the grass in the morning will get your feet wet from the dew, and hiking through the fields and open will have full sun exposure.
Trail has some field hiking so you are in the sun for a few miles, but there is also some nice sections next to the lake. Proximity to the lake means locating water to filter should not be a problem.
Reference the Indiana DNR Salamonie Lake Bloodroot Trail brochure for pertinent information.
