How to Order Maps
Several maps are available from the Hoosier National Forest:
(Scale: 1/2 inch = 1 mile) $10.00 each
One map, printed on water resistant paper, covers both districts of the Hoosier National Forest. Some recreation information is also included. This large map (27"x32") shows public ownership, roads, structures, and all recreation facilities. In full color, this map also features photographs of areas throughout the Forest.
(Scale: 1 inch = 2,000 feet) $8.00 each
These maps are also known as 7.5 minute Quads. When ordering topographic maps, you must specify which map you want by quadrangle name or number. There are a total of 30 maps which cover the Hoosier. The grids will help you locate a specific quad. Only grids with national forest lands (shown in green) are available from our offices. For a more detailed map to make your topographic sheet selection from see the featured item on topographic maps below. Topographic maps show Forest Service ownership as well as other topographic and cultural features. These are ideal maps for hunters or cross country hikers as you can, with practice, determine your exact location from these maps. Each quad sells for $8. There is a charge of $3.50 per order for mailing any amount of topographic sheets ordered. Note- the contour interval of maps on the Hoosier is 10 feet.
