Bakers Camp Covered Bridge

Built in 1901 by J. J. Daniels using the Burr arch truss design, the bridge is 128 feet long, 14 feet wide, and 13 feet high. The bridge crosses the Big Walnut Creek just east of Bainbridge, Indiana, just over one mile south of U.S. 36. This is one of the better maintained covered bridges we have seen and it sets in a very nice spot. I will try to get back here for some more captures in the Spring. As an added incentive to return in the Spring, there is a great blue heron rookery and roosting area just east of this spot.

    1. I think there are around 100 still in Indiana and 32 of those are in Parke County. Parke County has a Covered Bridge Festival every October. We have been there the last two years. We eat good then drive around to see the bridges!
