It offers a swimming beach, picnic area, fishing, hunting, boating, camping, Frisbee golf course, and miles of hiking trails.

Cole Porter was born in and spent the first 14 years of his life in the home at 17-19 South Huntington Street. The property was purchased in 2004 by Ole Olsen Memorial Theatre and they have restored the home to its 1891 condition. In June 2009, the completely restored home opened as an Inn featuring three six room suites and a gift shop.
The trail south of Peru is paved for several miles. This is one of the prettiest trails in north central Indiana, following the babbling Little Pipe Creek and immersing the visitor in some of the best sights, sounds and scents nature has to offer. An interesting old dam is to be found just south of the trailhead. Remarkable plant & animal species abound in the surrounding woodlands and wetlands.
