Greene–Sullivan State Forest is a state forest in Dugger, Indiana. The forest was founded in 1936 after the Indiana Department of Natural Resources received over 3,000 acres (1,200 ha) of land from coal firms; it now contains over 9,000 acres (3,600 ha), including over 120 lakes. The forest provides fishing, camping, hunting, and horseback riding.[1]
