Deep River County Park encompasses more than 1,200 acres on both the south and north sides of U.S. Highway 30 about 4.5 miles east of Interstate 65 in Merrillville. Deep River Waterpark is located on the south area of the park site..
The historic area of the serene park stretches along the Deep River corridor for about four miles with trails beginning behind the Historic Wood’s Grist Mill. The original wood frame structure was later rebuilt of brick in 1876 by Nathan Wood, John’s son, as a custom flouring mill. That’s the building you see today.

The Lake County Parks and Recreation Board acquired the site and renovated the mill, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 10, 1975. Renovated in 1976, Wood’s Mill is surrounded by gardens, a wedding gazebo, a visitor center, and Grinder Field, home of the Deep River Grinders historic base ball team.
