Old Ben AquaPark in Winslow, Indiana has announced its 2024 opening date along with some new unique attractions!

Last year, a new inflatable waterpark pending in Pike County, Indiana. A 266-acre Boy Scout Reservation, Old Ben Boy Scout Reservation, in Pike County got a major makeover and it was converted into a new campground and aquapark known as Old Ben Aqua Park and Campground. Here's what Pike County Economic Development Corporation said about the waterpark last year:

The charm of Pike County, Indiana is the outdoors recreational assets, and this is a prime example. Pike County’s quality of life amenities are rich, and we have much untapped potential.

KEEP READING: 40 Real Indiana Towns with Quirky, Weird, and Funny Names

Outside the major cities, the Hoosier state is full of tiny little towns you've probably passed through on your way to one of those cities. Most of them are likely 100 to 150 years old, or older, and have been around far longer than the large metropolitan areas such as Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Evansville. Typically, they were started by early settlers who found their way to the state and decided to make it home. Eventually, others would join them, and a community was formed. Over time, as the surrounding areas grew, most of them were folded into those areas and governed by the nearest city or county's governing body officially making them "unincorporated," meaning they did not have their own formally organized municipal government.

A scroll through Wikipedia's long list of unincorporated communities in Indiana shows several of them have names that by today's standards would be considered weird, quirky, or just downright right funny. These are my 40 favorities.
